Holiday Left-Overs & GM 30

My studio (aka dining room) was packed up for the holidays and safely stowed in The Craft Cupboard Under the Stairs. Our new TH tissue wrap might have been in the deep dark recesses had the USPS not (as it turns out, luckily) routed my package north to NH rather than south to PA from the absolutely wonderful people at Absolutely Everything  (they are my favorite e-store and I swear Patti never sleeps). 

So when I saw this challenge at Studio L3 I started musing about what I might be able to try out on the fly.  While cleaning up pre-Christmas, I threw all the left over bits from TH 12 tags of Christmas into a baggy, to use (usually means throw out) later.  Strangley, I was able to put my hands on it right away (it was in the upper right hand box).  I used my new tissue wrap on a leftover inked tag and made the flower as per TH instructions on tag 12.  Then I glued on as many of the leftover bits as I could.  Although it looks a bit like the island of the misfit tags, it was fun whipping up something at the kitchen counter, and my dining room is still tidy.  Needs to stay that way for a little bit into the new year.  Hope I can hold out!

If you're making Tim tags - check out this challenge too at Simon Says Stamps:


  1. Hi Kathleen. Your newest tag is really pretty. I really love the bird with "WISH" on his tummy! I also love how he's sitting on the grestive greenery die cuts. Your tissue tape flower is really pretty, too. Thanks for adding this wonderful tag to our challenge at Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge. <3 Candy

  2. What a great tag! Loving the music background and anything with birds nesting is adorable. Thanks for joining the challenge at Simon Says Stamp & Show.

  3. Honestly I've no idea what impresses me more ... your GORGEOUS tag or your "Everything Is In It's Place Cupboard."

    If that were my house ... it'd be the craft cupboard ON the stairs, AROUND the stairs, everywhere but IN the cupboard, actually. :)

    Happy New Year!
