12 Tags of 2012 with Tim Holtz-June

Boy this month just got away from me! Another month of hatching ducklings, broody chickens and hatching turkeys here on Hen House Hill!!

I love, love, LOVE Tim's Tag for June (thank  you for the great image Tim!), I don't have all of the supplies on hand that Tim used but had fun improvising and this is what I came up with:

I tinted the image with Worn Lipstick and Tattered Rose Distress Ink and a waterbrush. I did the mottled stain technique for the background of my Tag and then stamped it using Tim's Flourish and Post Card stamp with Ranger Archival Ink in Coffee (love that color!!!) I added the piece of Tim Holtz Film Ribbon with my Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher (is it just me or does this lil stapler make you want to staple everything in sight?!). I used Antique Linen Distress Stain to dye the seam binding, colored the muse token with Ranger Pearl White Paint Dabber..unfortunately the flash made the whole token look white. The feathers behind the bottom of the photo image are from one of my ducks.  Be sure to head over to Tim's Blog and check out his's wonderful!

Thank you for looking!

Grandma's Brag Book

I couldn't wait to get my hands on the Little Darlings Collection by Graphic45!  I adore these papers, the images remind me of family photos from when my Brothers and I were babies and I can't help but smile everytime I look at them.  I used paper from both the 12 x 12 and the 8x8 Paper Pads along with the chipboard Embellishments, Weathered Wood Distress Ink, Seam Binding and the Bind-It-All to create this mini album.  I'm entering this album into the Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog for their Anything But a Card Challenge.   Here is a photo of the Cover and a few of the inside pages. There are 20 inside pages in total.

Thank you for looking!
