It was an honor and a pleasure to create projects for the CHA show for the always awesome Tim Holtz. He posted a video tour of his products at CHA that shows a lot – though I want to jump in and grab products! SO much fun stuff. Today I’m going to share the first of nine projects I made:
Almost everything used on this page is from Tim Holtz! The core’dinations cardstock (in peeled paint, I believe), from Idea-Ology I used the new Christmas kraft resist for the background (sprayed with red mist), stickers from the seasonal salvage stickers pack, Tidings tissue tape, new kraft resist chipboard letter (“S”), and a bit of the seasonal patterned paper as well. From Sizzix I used the vintage marketplace die (letters), and of course I used distress stickles to accent the page.
Distress stickles make everything just a little better. Seriously LOVE how they add the look of real glitter without the fuss. I dotted some on my “goofy” title, and outlined some elements with it as well.
Printing out my journaling in strips (as I did on this layout) is one of my favorite go-to tricks. It lets me break up what I’ve got to say, and I love the look.
Tissue Tape (another of my obsessions!) finds it’s way onto this layout in several spots. I am really into cutting the ends of my paper (and even tape) into a banner-like look. Just adds a little something extra – and you know I’m all about the details.
I will be posting all of the projects I made for Tim here on my blog, though I might hold a few of these seasonal ones for closer to the holidays – I haven’t yet decided!
Have a beautiful weekend-
