I have had no time to participate in Tim's Tags this year, but I did want to share a book I have been putting together the last few weeks. It's along the same lines as my Halloween book where I put together some of my favorite holiday art that I have created and received (from some amazing artists I may add).
So I want to start off by thanking all the artists that have contributed to this book by sending me some of their beautiful Christmas creations over the past few years :
Robin Woodard (cover), Sarah Hemphill, Jacqueline de Groot, Lynn Stevens,
Nancy Maxwell James and Kris Dickinson.
This gorgeous Christmas card I received from Robin Woodard graces the cover.
I collaged the inside cover and then added a mini paper bag which I decorated with this lovely tag sent by Sarah Hemphill. Since Sarah and I both share some German roots, I really adore this tag.
I covered the opposite side of the paper bag and inserted inside of it tags I made last year for Tim's 12 Tag of Christmas.
I then cut out two plastic sleeves from my ATC holders and added some of my
favorite Christmas ATC's I made.
The Christmas arch I included here was one I received from Nancy Maxwell James. I placed it in a plastic sleeve and backed it with a card from 7 Gypsies.
Another gorgeous arch, this one sent to me by Kris Dickinson.
Opposite that I collaged a bingo tag.
I'm thrilled to have one of Jacqueline's grid cards to add to my book.
Opposite that is a large pocket envelope which I decorated with yet another one of my tags for Tim's tags last year.
From the large envelope you can pull out a wonderful Christmas tag created by Lynn Stevens.
The next page I added was a smaller envelope which contains one of Jacqueline's lovely tags.
My final two papes are the back of the envelope to which I added one of my
The inside of the back cover was then collaged by me.
So happy to have this incredible collection of artwork to grace my coffee table this Christmas!
