Tim Tag August 2015

I haven't participated in Tim Holtz's tag of the month for a while now.  Last week, I sat down to create this tag. (Edited to show a better photo color-wise; I also forgot to add the paint when I took the first set of photos.)
In his example, he recommends using a photo from the Found Relatives assortment.  I did one better ... the relative I found was me!  This is a photo that was taken around 1957 in our yard in Girard, Pennsylvania.  Did you catch the "Giraud" on the ephemera?  Pretty cool, huh?
I don't have the dies that he used, so I improvised by setting up the words in Cricut Design Space.  I love it when I can make something out of nothing!  

Here's Tim's tutorial and his tag.

Distress Ink Storage Hack

Earlier today I responded to a post on Jennifer McGuire's blog post about Staying Organized explaining how I store my ink pads.  I received several emails asking for me to clarify what I was talking about.  Well, if a picture is worth 1,000 words, how many words is a video worth?  I decided to post a video instead of trying to explain.  I hope that this helps.  Be sure to post a comment if you have questions or just want to tell me that I did a good job (this is my first craft-related video).
