Tags of 2014 -- January

Hi Everyone! Happy New Year! I hope your year is filled with good things. I want to share with you the New Year's tag I made for Tim Holtz's January 2014 Tag challenge. I had a lot of fun with this. I did not have a pocket watch die, so I used several Spellbinders dies to create my own. I have been hoarding these Idea-ology gear embellishments for awhile, I must have about 5 packs of these, so I was glad to be able to use them on this tag. LOL! The stencil I used is Tim Holtz's Clock Works.You can see Tim's demo here.



Here is a closer view.




Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by. I hope you have a wonderful and blessed day!
