This tag was fun!! Some of you might recognise the "make your own stamp" technique that Tim taught today -- I used that technique at ScrapFest Oshawa's Crop Room Make in Take. IN FACT, Cheryl Sue used the stamp I gave them for that make in take in her variation of Tim's Tag #1 ... I thought that was sooooo cool!! Anyhoo, I digress :)
I didn't make my own stamp here .. I did use one of Claudine Hellmuth's Foam Stamp Sets instead. I love the one boarder stamp that I believe is in the Doodles Pack -- I really must check that out ... I think it works well here. The Trees were from that Seasonal Grunge Set that used before (and that has come in VERY handy this year) I embossed with Distress Embossing Powder and, instead of Flocking, I used Ranger's white embossing Puffs for the snow. Did the trick ..
Hope you like the tag cause it almost didn't happen today -- I got locked out of my back room -- THANKS WANDA!!hehe We had to break into it -- I am happy to report we must have all been good little girls in our youth because we couldn't pick the lock... even though Kelly just had to keep trying while I tried to take the pics out of the hinges....
Eureka!!! The pins came out okay.....
BUT... the door was wedged right in there... and I couldn't pry it open with my limited tools -- my tools are kept in the back room of course -- we did what we did with jewelry pliers and setting tools - OMG ... hysterical!!
So...... Amber went and got her hubby and his tools.... VOILA!!! He doesn't look as happy as I was to see that door give way! LOL
THANK MIKE!! I could get to the back room once again!!!!! And you saved the 11 Tag of Christmas ... and my bursting bladder!!! LOL
Hope you're all having a creative weekend!! One more tag to go .... Hopefully sans drama :)
