I just went to the Tim Holtz site - Wow! Unfortunately, i don't have the rock candy distress stickles/paint. But...I'm going to call my LSS and see what Judy can do about that!

That is such a neat idea to punch the holes for your scissors to cut out in place like with the snowmans arms! I havent ever done it that way but I am going to try that. I usually just score it and start a little hole in the middle but is way is neater.

I would love to have enough time to make each of those projects!

wow! Thanks Jan, I hope I have time to try a few...if not now maybe after the holidays

So much wonderful inspiration! Thanks Jan. I'd like to add that Scrapbook News and Review Magazine is doing a 12 days of Christmas Blog Hop (http://www.scrapbooknewsandreview.com/index.php?option=com_wrapper&view=wrapper&Itemid=100782). Each day will be a new post of inspiring holiday projects.

Thanks Tami, I fixed the link above.

Here's another...over at Ellen Hutson's classroom (http://ellenhutson.typepad.com/the_classroom_new/) they are showcasing their version of Tim's tags.

That's a great resource, Jan. I love that the feminized Tim's tags. I'll be following along to see what else they make over there. Have you made any of the tags yet? I keep thinking I will and something else happens. Life is never dull here. LOL!

I made the first tag last night...hope to put it on my neglected blog tonight. I'm sad I know I don't have time to do them every day with my travels. I learned about stamping and embossing on grungeboard last night. Hope it works out that other shackies join in the fun!

I'm in various stages of drying my version of the 1st tag. So much fun.
