Hello everyone, wonderful to have you drop by here and today I have some super exciting news to share with you! Today is the day of the official launch of a brand new challenge blog, A Vintage Journey
The blog is dedicated to all things Tim Holtz and will have challenges every two weeks, sponsored by Country View Crafts..
The idea behind this blog came from Brenda Brown from Bumblebees and Butterflies and when she invited me to become part of her design team, I was super excited of course.
The first challenge is simply "Anything Tim Holtz". So here is my first project:
When I think Tim, I immediately think tags, and so for my first project I created a booklet made of two tags connected with Tissue Tape.
Both tags were cut with my Sizzix tag and bookplates die.This die cuts tags that are pretty much exactly like the Ranger size 8 tags. The cover tag was cut from Kraft card, the second one from Manila Card stock.
The butterfly was stamped and fussy cut from the small butterflies from the Haberdashery set, I also added a type charm with the letter V for Vintage and some hand died seam binding.
Well, that's it. I had great fun using some of the many Tim Holtz stamps and dies etc that I have collected over the years and using some of his wonderful techniques. Almost all of the products are available from Country View Crafts. They have a wonderful collection and no postage!!
I hope you will visit the Challenge Blog and see the wonderful projects the other talented design team members have created, I assure you, you won't want to miss them! And of course we all hope that you will play along with our very first challenge Anything Tim!!
Have a great creative day and Enjoy the Journey!!
