12 tags of 2012 ~ August

Wow! Have you seen Tim's blog post for August 2012 tag. It's the Best!! http://timholtz.com/12-tags-of-2012-august/

My dear mother ordered Tim's new Silhoutte stamp, it came this week just in time for our visit and make tags. I love this stamp set. I brought along my manila tags, distress ink pads, perfect pearls mist, dabber paints, movers and shapers leaf and branch die, chit chat, tattered pinecone die, diffuser template set, on the edge die and a texture fades embossing folder. I didn't have the texture fade embossing folder Tim used, but did have his embossing diffuser set, it did well for this project using the oval template.
Mother and I are having a ball making these tags. Each one a little different. I love how these leaf die cuts turned out. We are having fun making the flowers from the pinecone die.
Thanks Tim for another great tag project!!
I did find out that you don't use the instructions on the diffuser template package with the Vagabond, it has too much pressure and mars the template and eats into my embossing folders. Too fix this problem, I placed the oval template down on the solo plate with tag inside of embossing folder and then one cutting pad on top before running through the Vagabond.
