12 Tags of 2014 - April

Can you believe it is a quarter of the way through the year already?  Here is my tag for the 12 Tags of 2014 Challenge.  I have also been playing along since this challenge was launched in 2012……time definitely flies when you are having fun making tags!

I had loved making all the pretty flowers and am really happy with how the faux bluebells turned out.  They are a favourite flower of mine.  They are just starting to show signs of flowering in my garden.  You can't beat a walk in the woods at this time of year when you just happen across a patch of beautiful bluebells.  

Here is another shot of the tag - this time against a different background.

I used a pretty Graphic 45 Ladies Diary paper as the inspiration for my flower arrangement.  I loved how the faux garden trellis turned out too with it's mirror inserts.  It wasn't the die Tim used but I think it works.  This was definitely a 'pretty' tag from Tim!  He made fab roses with his pinecones die for his tag.  Click on this link to check out what else Tim's tag inspired from everyone that is playing along with the 12 Tags of 2014 challenge.

Here is how I made mine:

I thought I would share another tag video with you today as I was thinking about all the tags I have made over the years and I remembered the fun I had making what I think was my first tag video.  I hope you enjoy it as it really made me chuckle as I edited it!

Hope you are having a creative day.  Thank you for popping by x


  1. Completely gorgous Helen! I LOVE thos bluebells and the frilly centres of your other flowers are perfect. The trellis idea was simply inspired, I really love the whole thing.
    I remeber the xylophone tag from TT and video. You have come a long way, much more polished. I enjoy watching your videos very much :o)
    Have a fab week, Mo x

  2. I agree with Mo that this is completely gorgeous, Helen! I've left a comment for you on your Youtube channel. I think your "12 tags" ones are better than TH's originals. You are absolutely one of the best tag makers on the Internet!!! One day I may get around to tag making but it's not something I've ever reallly attempted - there always seems to be something else to do. The music tag was one of my absolute favourite tags of all time and so inspired!

    Have a great week.

  3. The time definitely flies!!! Your tag is exquisite! I love all the mirrors! Fabulous take!!!
