Maggie's Tags of Christmas!

I stopped by Memory Bound recently and while there, I checked out the fantastic sample Christmas tags from Tim Holtz' 12 Tags of Christmas. You really MUST see them in person to appreciate the details! The tags are each works of art.

Then, on the same display, three additional tags caught my eye, but they weren't from Tim's series. Watch out, Tim! These are MAGGIE'S TAGS of CHRISTMAS! They are simple, understated, and beautiful!

Maggie used Tim's latest Seasonal Distress Inks to create her tags. She also incorporated ideas she picked up on Tammy Tutterow's blog (click here to visit Tammy's inspirational blog). Tammy is an instructor and has been a designer for many companies, including Ranger. Her work is beautiful and her blog has many wonderful instructional videos. Check it out!
Maggie used "de-bossing" on her tags -- she put the "bumpy" side of the embossing on the back of the tag. It creates an interesting effect! She also made great use of Tim's seasonal dies. You will love the pinecone die!

Thank you, Maggie, for sharing your beautiful samples and inspiring us all!
