January Tag for Vintage Typewriter

In the fall I made Kathy Orta's Vintage Typewriter.  It was a really fun project.  Today I completed a tag and an insert for January.  Since the temperature is in the single digits this morning I added the "brr" insert in front of the roller.

The tag is pretty much all things Tim Holtz.  I used the wrinkle free distress technique for the background.  I used one of his stamps for the quote.

I used four Sizzix Alterations dies:
  • Typeset (January)
  • Tattered Banners (behind January)
  • Word Play (brr)
  • Snow Flurries (pocket on the tag)
If you're interested in making the typewriter, visit Kathy Orta's website Paper Phenomenon and look for "Vintage Typewriter in the Tutorial section.
