Welcome to my blog! I never really thought I would create a blog untill hubby set up a family one. I started posting to it and was told off for "hijacking" it with my "craft rubbish!" And so the Nerdbird Blog was born! Not sure how much I'll post but I understand that this blogging lark can be addictive!

Tim Holtz - 12 tags of Christmas

Hello! I am still here! I have done some crafting, not much scrapping but I am hoping that will return! I have decided to try Tim Holtz 12 tags of christmas, So far I have managed to keep up!!!
I've tried to not get too hung up on copying exactly and just using my supplies (rather than shopping!)

Tag 1
I don't have Tim's house die so grew it and hand cut it, and made the tree out of wire and masking tape.Tag 2Tag 3
Not a fan of "Fowl" so I used a reindeer from my Slice instead, and did 2 tissue tape flowers which I loved!Tag 4
Didn't have any facets but had some flat ones so used that instead, loved the effect though Tag 5Tag 6Tag 7Display!
I made a garland from twine and stripes of material and then I am hooking the tags to it, I am quite pleased with it! I am also doing JYC this year but more as a art journal than a scrapbook, will sort some photos of that out over the next couple of days. Feels good to be crafting again.
