***SWAP COMPLETED*** Tim Holtz-Like Calendar Tag Swap
 
TIM HOLTZ-LIKE Calendar Tag Swap

For this swap you will select an available month and make 12 + 1 identical Tim Holtz-like tags to represent your chosen month.

Ladies...

I just realized this.... DUH!

Group 1 needs to send 13 tags (1 from me)

Group 2 needs to only send 12 tags since I am in that group.



Specifics
  • Tags: Size #8 (6 ¼ x 3 1/4) If you cut your own to size, please use quality cardstock.
  • Style: Vintage, distressed in Tim Holtz style
  • Orientation: Portrait - vertical
  • Quantity: 12 + 1 (the one is for me) identical tags
  • Embellishments: I don’t want to tell you what each tag must have as if you are signing up for this one you are aware of the distressed, vintage style of Tim Holtz. It is your choice for the techniques you want to use and choice of embellishments. The month should be indicated on the tag but not the year. Use quality materials. At least two layers to each tag.
  • Due Date: September 1 – this should give you plenty of time to experiment and create a tag you are proud of and want to share.
  • Mailing instructions: I have found from participating in this particular swap before that it is best to package each tag separately and then place them all in one Ziploc bag to send. This is due to the amount of detail, technique and embellishments I will be returning them via Priority Mail Padded Flat Rate Envelope (12 ½ x 9 ½). Please include cash only (no checks, money orders, cashier's checks) for $5.95 for return postage. I have the envelopes on hand. If you want to include a return self-addressed label it would be appreciated. For those not US located, contact me regarding the fee to return your package to you.

    Mail to:
    Joan M. Olk
    6284 Magnolia Lane North
    Maple Grove, MN 55369
You are the artist – sign the back of your tags.

To sign-up send me your mailing address along with your choice of month. You can sign up for more than one month but in different groups. For those that take more than one spot, a different tag is required for each group.

I will take sign-ups through Friday, May 10 or until CLOSED is indicated.

Search the web - there are numerous you tube videos, blogs, Tim Holtz himself, etc. out there with an abundance of ideas.

Thanks for joining, Ladies!

Lazorkay 04-26-2013 03:25 AM

Well, I know they are supposed to all look the same, but I know there will be small differences in mine, just because of the way I will do the background on the tag. :)

I see glittter and paint and lots of inkyness! ( not to mention the MESS )

rositagustafson72 04-26-2013 03:49 AM

Getting my tags today and messing with it this weekend.

ashjoy 04-26-2013 04:10 AM

I subbed, but just can't join yet. I was thinking you were looking for things to do along with the SS swap.

To keep stamping fun and stress free, I only allow myself one swap at a time. And I'm already in 2. One will be done this weekend. Hopefully the other shortly after.

I have done this swap already twice with other online groups. I do swaps like this for one reason. It is not about what I get back but I love to see what others create, at all levels. Tags I have gotten back in the past I have ready to display once I find the right hangar I want to use. Or, I am thinking about having my dh install the bulletin board rails around my room to hang them all from....

lindac007 04-30-2013 12:31 PM

I don't understand is it this years calendar to be on the tag? or is it not a calendar and just the name of the month?

Stamperamma 04-30-2013 03:22 PM

I will take two spots, April group 1 and January group 2 please.

Dea

Stamperamma 04-30-2013 03:23 PM

Sorry my post posted twice.

No year on the tag, just the month.

Oh Nicole I don't need you twisting my arm lmao. But okay sign me up for November group 1 cuz I like Nicole's style so I'll want her tag lmao.

jjhere 05-02-2013 06:02 AM

Not sure yet what I'm going to do with mine. I participate in TH's monthly tag challenges too so have quite the collection going already. Maybe I'll put all the tags for an individual month in a frame and change it out monthly. I've always wondered what people do with their tags.
