12 Tags of 2016 June

Tim Holtz's June tag is adorable and I was very worried. You see, I don't have the particular Sizzix die (the Bigz Dapper) that Tim used and frankly that die is pretty much what makes the entire design so incredible.  I played around with a few of my dies and in the end I really like what I made.

Here is Tim's tag:

and MY Tag:
I used a preprinted Tissue Wrap design because I didn't have the plain Tissue Wrap though I do prefer the less busy design that Tim made for his tag over the busy preprinted design I used.

The second design I made the Tim's Challenge involved a background stamp and the butterfly Sixxiz Alterations die.  I love how this design turned out.

Tim Holtz is offering his Creative Chemistry 101 and 102 class again as a lead in to his new class Creative Chemistry 103 which begins in August.  You can find more about the classes at Online Card Classes.  I took the two classes she they were originally offered and I can honey say they changed the way I do paper crafting.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                

Part of the updating of 101 and 102 include occasional challenges and this week-Week 4 Challenge included Embossing Basics.  I won't go over the exact details in how these were made because. that is part of Tim's class.
