Happy Thursday!  I hope you’ve had a great week so far.  I finally snuck into the studio this morning BECAUSE I’ve been watching what T!m Smiley from millan.net is doing everyday and I’m falling behind.  He’s up to Tag 3 and I just finished Tag 1.  Since T!m Smiley from millan.net started doing the 12 Tags of Christmas, I’ve never played along.  I made up my mind a few weeks ago to also do the tags, but put my own personal spin on them.

Here is T!m’s Smiley from millan.net Tag 1 and below is mine!


I followed along with T!m’s Smiley from millan.net tutorial, but added my own personal touches.  Way too much fun!  I didn’t want a black snowman, so I made him purple by stamping in Eggplant.  But first, I painted a section of the Grunge Board white, so that I could stamp over it and not do a resist.

  • Stamps:  Tim Holtz Collection – Retro Holiday and Mini Holidays from Stampers Anonymous; Sentiment – Believe from Papertrey Ink; Flourish – Pollen Dust from Fancy Pants Designs
  • Paper:  Manila Tag from eclectic Paperie; Small Mini White Tag
  • Ink:  Ranger Broken China, Faded Jeans and Dusty Concord Distress
  • Accessories:  Ranger Snow Cap and Eggplant Acrylic Paint Dabbers, Rock Candy Distress Stickles and Distress Crackle Paint, Matte Accents, Mini Mister, Ink Blending Tool; Tim Holtz idea-ology Plain and Elements Grunge Board; May Arts Ribbon; Oval Punch; Blue Stitched Ribbon; Foam Mounting Tape; Craft Wire

I hope you have a fabulous day and thanks for stopping by!  I’m off to work on Tags 2 and 3 Smiley from millan.net WOO HOO!
