    I hope you don´t might but I would love to invite you to join the STEAMPUNK CHALLENGE which starts tomorrow - watch out the Blog:

    Hope to see you there this would be just such a great honor!

  2. Thanks for the replay, although I enjoyed the original too!
    Valentines are great any time!
    Fantastic steam punk tag! Was there a tut for this?
    Have a crafty day!

  3. AWESOME, AWESOME, AWESOME !!! I love this tag and the box what a wonderful idea; hum I think I need to make a box for my tags... GREAT inspiration Jim, Thanks !

  4. You're brilliant!!! Love love love that rocking tag! Amazing work!!!

  5. Wow, love the tag and the tagbox is so cool. Thanks for the video, I will soon try to make the tagbox myself :-)

  6. Hi Jim, I loved the video . . . I'm new to your blog . . . so tell me,where do I buy a score board. That tool looks very practical. You are certainly a creative inspiration, thanks.
    Your blogging sister, Connie :)

    1. Connie-
      Jim uses the Martha Stewart Crafts Scoring Board and Envelope Tool. You are going to love this blog and Jim's creations!

  7. Talk about taking good care of us! The video is terrific butI knew you probably couldn't let the lining hiccup lie. I thought it was great - gave me the time to catch up and finish my tag box that night. Plus I was so busy gabbing that it wasn't til the show was over that I realized I had a terrific new way to keep my tags.Guess all my cylinders weren't firing or whatever the expression is. My husband has also put in an order for several boxes for his work table. Best of all - he likes your Ustream. He makes a lot of visits to the studio when you're on and he tried hard to help you with your lining math talking to you as if you could hear him. So you can see how much fun your show brings into our homes. The tag is awesome - that's on my docket for tonight. Have a great Thursday, Jim and remember to put your coffee cup down when you're in line.

  8. Phooey!! I left a comment a couple hours ago and it showed up for a moment and then was gone...hum. Anyway...thank you Jim for posting the correct measurements and taking time to make another're the BEST!!!

    I'm sorry I didn't stay for the show...kept getting the danged black screen and it was making me crazy...or crazier...LOL! I watched the show a little while ago but it's just not the same as being there live....missed the chat.

    I can't wait to get some Distress paints. I've scoured the stores in Indy, Columbus, OH and here locally but still can't find them. Guess I'm going to have to head up to Waxahachie soon.

  9. Loved the UStream and I hope you do not decide to delete it as it has a wealth of information, humor and instructions for the tags!! I need to go back and watch how you made your tags as I was multi-tasking during the first hour of your show, watching Mark Harmon on NCIS... and watching (and trying to listen) to you and Cesar!! The tags and box are fab and I think I may use this technique for pencil boxes too! Love you guys!

  10. I really love your tag box its awesome !

  11. All I remember was....poof the box was finished(without the lining).I am glad you record them because we can go back and see what you actually made and attempt to make it. We are a bunch of hens(and roosters) loose in the chicken coop while you are crafting. If you only could read everything we are chatting about. It is so much fun. You could probably do something really simple, I mean really simple, like make envelopes and we would still enjoy it. I need to go back and watch it again to see what I missed.

  12. Awesome tag, Jim. All that fab texture and shine...and grunge. Who knew that grunge could be such a good thing. Love the storage box, too. Very clever design! And, love is always right on time....

  13. Oh, wow that Steampunk tag is ultra cool! Fun, fun, fun ustream class. Thanks for taking the time to get us the correct measurements. Gonna have to make this box. I'm so busy gabbing and laughing I can't do it during the class, ha, ha, ha. Have a great night. Good luck with the studio reorganization.

  14. Jim, This was so sweet of you to take the time to re-do the box and shoot the video. You're such a sweetheart! I love the box and tag, I can't wait to try it. Have a great weekend, have fun re-doing the studio, remember you have to have enough room for all of us to come and play. HA!

  15. LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!!! might just be my project for the weekend!!

  16. Another awesome project! I love tags and this is just wonderful and the box is fab too. I think I might just have to go away and make myself one of these for myself. Thank you for the inspiration!

  17. Thank You so much for all the current measurements, I really appreciate it! We (Michael and I) both loved watching your video and joining you on Ustream; even if we were a bit late! I hope you are having a fabulous day!

  18. Finally got to watch the re-take video this morning. You are amazing. I can't believe how fast you whipped that out. I think I can handle this one. I'll add it to my Jim things I want to make list! Thanks for re-doing video.

  19. Gosh...this is awesome!!!! Don't know which I love more...well, love them both - tag AND box!!! Absolutely brilliant Steampunk (and crafting of course ;).
    Will have to add you to my blog-list immediately!!! AND become a follower...AND...phew! I'll be back *lol
