12 Tags: April

We had our monthly "12 Tags" drop in today! It's always fun to get inky and Tim Holtz makes it easy and fun with his 12 Tags of 2012 tutorials! You can check out the step by step for the April tag HERE for all the how-to info. I just want to share our tags with you!

Here's the tag I created:
I didn't have the new bird & branch die (though it's hanging in the store... tempting me!) so I decided I could work with pieces I already have!  I used one of the flourish Bigz dies and the Movers & Shapers bird.  I used a Sizzix embossing folder that is a fave of mine (remember it from these quick cards?), it has lots of open space for stamping the reflections stamps into.  I also used a piece of tin to cut a simple crown for my bird.  The rest of the supply list, I had :)  I haven't pulled out Distress EP for a while, so that was fun.  Love the texture it gives on my 'branch'!  Here's a close up:
And here's my tag along side Mom's tag.  She used the M&S branch on her tag.
And here's the tags created by the 3 lovely ladies who joined us in the studio today! I love seeing how differently everyone's projects turn out using the same techniques and products! 
Our 12 Tags Drop ins are scheduled for the 2nd Saturday of each month- we'd love to have you join us in May!  It'll be the week after our Fiesta weekend and I'll be brimming with enthusiasm as a freshly Certified Ranger Educator :)
