And here is my version:
My tags are a different size than Tim uses (smaller) because I had a ton of them leftover from a different project and I couldn't justify buying different tags when I had a thousand (literally) at home. For the February tag, I decided to use an arrow instead of a large Cupid. But I incorporated Cupid in two other ways by using small Valentines from Tim's Seasonal Paper Stash. I didn't have any honeycomb paper, and after 3 unsuccessful attempts to make my own, I just used a bunch of tissue paper hearts stacked on top of one another and then fluffed up for my heart. I used some vintage lace that I found in my Great-Great Aunt May's old sewing box (fear not, there is still a ton of it left for other projects!) for the bottom and the trimmings.

And here is my take on the March Tag:
I used the checkerboard embossing folder for my background because I don't have a wood-grain stamp (it's on my wish list) and the woodgrain embossing folder just didn't turn out right when I tried it. I thought the checkers went with the tiles in my mosaic pieces. I used a Martha Stewart Butterfly punch for the butterfly and Sizzlits for the shoe and frame. The caption is stamped twice on a piece of leftover acetate with green and black Stayz-On ink. The trimming is cut from a piece of fabric scraps.
Tim hasn't done a January Tag yet, since he only decided to start this project in February. So in the meantime... Here is a tag that I created myself this January:
I used a Tim Holtz embossing folder for the trees and a technique that I learned from his 12 tags of Christmas where you put ink onto the folder before embossing to create the background. Then I used all different kinds of embossing powders and inks to build up a lot of color and texture. The entire background area has a layer of clear UTEE mixed with fine blue glitter on it. It kinda looks like a thin layer of glass. The green and brown on the trees was created with several different chalk inks. The snow was created by using a Zig glue pen to draw the snow and then covering it with white embossing powder. The trimming is green tulle that I dyed a few years and ago and try to use as much as possible now, since I know I'll NEVER get rid of it all, haha. This tag doesn't have anything glued onto it or any sentiment because I wanted it to be relatively flat so that it can be used as a bookmark all during the winter months. I made similar versions of this tag for my Christmas gifts this year.
Hmmm... Might as well share another tag while I'm at it!
Here is a St. Patty's Day Tag that
I made for my mother-in-law to use as a bookmark:
Well, there you have it! 4 fun tags!
