Tim Holtz Feb 2015 Tag

ETA:   I just found out that Tim chose my Valentine Treat Bags as Valentine Blogworthy!!  See his post here (I'm the last one on the list - although my last name is mistyped) I am SO excited and honored to have been chosen!

Here is Tim's Tag for February
After several aborted attempts trying to use ephemera pieces -  I finally got a tag done - but ended up using several different pieces from Paper Stash/Seasonal instead of pieces of ephemera (which is vellum and I found it to curl and crack with the Glue and Seal).
Otherwise, I followed Tim's tutorial pretty closely so you can check it out on his blog if you are interested in 'how to'  - I used a die cut felt cupid instead of a heart.  I used my new craft sewing machine that Kent got me for Christmas so you may see a little more stitching from me on future posts!
I added some Chit Chat Stickers and angled my arrow.  This was the first time I've used the  Mini Metal Corners - they're pretty cool!  There's some rubbing on of Picket Fence Distress Paint on both metal pieces and tag, some outlining with a Black Distress Marker and rubbing with my finger, and a little sewing!
I'm finally back to work tomorrow after two days out because of snow -  catching a ride with a co-worker who drives in - as the subway system still isn't back up to full service with all the snow and freezing weather!  We have someone coming to the house tomorrow to hopefully get some of the snow and ice off the roof - we're getting ice dams and some leakage around some windows - Ugh!  and more snow coming Thursday AND Sunday!

I love your take on Tim's tag! Keep warm and safe! We have short sleeves weather in Las Vegas ! It is nice now, but in summertime we have almost daily 120 F temperature:(

First of all, your tag is sensational, Julia! I adore the sweet cupid and all the other amazing details!

Second, congratulations on being showcased by Sir Tim Himself for your cool treat bags!!

Third, I pray that you don't get any more excessive snow and that you are able to get rid of the ice dams, etc. before any severe damage is done!
