Tim Holtz Month and the Tim Tag Challenge - Sarah's Tag

Hi Crafty Friends!

As you may know, August is Tim Holtz Month in Aunty Vera Land and we're celebrating with big discounts on Tim Holtz products, give-aways....and a Tim Tag Challenge!

The challenge goes like this.........



Get inspired by Tim's tutorial.......... create your own August Tag using Tim's as a guide (and a guide is all it is - bring in your own ideas, use your own products, make that tag sing you, you, you!)....and either email pics of your tag to us at info@auntyverascrapandcraft.com.au or upload them direct to our facebook group. Winners (by random draw) will be announced the 1st September - Sydney, Australia time

{ The boring fine print: by emailing your pics or posting them on our page, you give us permission to use them in a blog post at the end of the challenge }

Today Team Designer Sarah shows us her beautiful tag.......


Sarah went in a slightly different direction from Tim's Vintage style...... and created this tag using Graphic 45's Home Sweet Home (which I think I have mentioned in the past is one of my favourite G45 collections EVER!!)







Isn't it gorgeous! I just love love LOvE it!!
Thank you Sarah for taking the challenge :)


Now Crafty Friends..... YOUR turn! There's only three days left before the challenge closes. 
And did I mention there are prizes?





Wow! Who wouldn't want to win those!
So let's get crafting, and keep those tags coming!

Tim Holtz Month and the Tim Tag Challenge - Jenni's Tags

Hi Crafty Friends!

As you may know, August is Tim Holtz Month in Aunty Vera Land and we're celebrating with big discounts on Tim Holtz products, give-aways....and a Tim Tag Challenge!

The challenge goes like this.........



Get inspired by watching Tim's tutorial.......... create your own August Tag using Tim's as a guide (and a guide is all it is - bring in your own ideas, use your own products, make that tag sing you, you, you!)....and either email pics of your tag to us at info@auntyverascrapandcraft.com.au or upload them direct to our facebook group. Winners (by random draw) will be announced the 1st September - Sydney, Australia time

{ The boring fine print: by emailing your pics or posting them on our page, you give us permission to use them in a blog post at the end of the challenge }

Today we have Road Tester the Real Jenni showcasing her tags.......



Tag Number 1 - Vintage Tag.
Jenni created a lot of texture to give this tag its Old World charm.......




Tag Number Two - Transparency Tag
Have you noticed how transparency overlays are really shy and don't like to be photographed?
The white "enjoy the Little Things" quote at the bottom of Jenni's tag is actually an overlay - what a clever way to use it! And of course the tag features layers, layers. layers.......




Thank you for taking the challenge Jenni.

Now Crafty Friends..... YOUR turn! There's just a week left to enter our challenge, so keep those tags coming.

Have a fabulous and crafty week
Aunty Vera :)

Father's Day Cards with Kaisercraft Time Machine....and more!

Hi Crafty Friends!

If you live in Australia...........or any of the other countries who celebrate Father's Day the same day that we do (sorry, I'm really not up on my International Special Days am I??).....then you may know, or be shocked to realise, that Father's Day is two weeks away. Yes. Two weeks!

So better get busy crafting and cardmaking!! Today, Team Designer Leanne has some great cards to inspire you. And if you live in Victoria, Australia you may want to see these cards in real life - and even do a little bit of card shopping - by visiting Leanne at the Rochester Town Markets. The markets are held the 4th Saturday of every month which means......TOMORROW!

Have a look at these fab Father's Day cards.......

Featuring Kaisercraft's Time Machine collection......










....and with an Impression Obsession die to add an eye-catching sentiment.......



Kaisercraft's Scrap Yard collection is also great for male-themed cards, and perfect for Father's Day, especially when teamed together with the Kaisercraft Cogs die set......








And don't forget your older collections! Sometimes sorting through our Stashes - (come on, don't pretend you don't have one!) - reminds us of treasures we may have forgotten about.

Like Kaisercraft's Garage Days.....


and Graphic 45's Good Ol' Sport........


Thank you Leanne. Such fabulous inspiration in time for Father's Day card making!

Time to get some crafting!
Aunty Vera :)
