Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2014 - January - Leave Ordinary Behind

My husband loves his pocket watches.  He has three:  one his parents gave him when he graduated college, one he bought himself and the one I gave him when we got married. So, tonight I had an extra good time creating my monthly Tim Holtz Tag as it featured such a watch.  Tim used his large die, but I had his mini die and so I decided to give it a go using that one.  For this tag, I used only Tim Holtz and/or Ranger products.  That is not always the case, but this time I was able to find all I needed in my stash.


Lots of stains, inks and embossing were used on this tag.  I got to use a sentiment from a new stamp set by Tim on this tag.  I don't know many people who strive to be ordinary, why not try to be unique!

If you haven't tried making a tag of your own, I would suggest you visit  Tim's blog and he will show you how to make one, and give it your own spin!  Looking forward to seeing what the February tag will be and what new things I can learn and share.

Winnie, forgive me for not stopping by sooner! Not enough hours in the day for 'play time' :) I so love your tag and the story behind it! Yet another thing we have in common, my dh has 2 pocket watches as well! While he doesn' t carry them, he cherished them and 'pets them' from time to time when he takes them out of the watch box :)
I so love your TH tag! So vintage and very masculine, great design as usual! Have a fantastic weekend, my friend :)
