12 Tags of 2013 January

I had so many ideas for this Tag but life truly did get in the way and when I was going through my Tim Stamps and came across this one I knew what I was going to end up making.  I adore Tim's January Tag but don't have half of the supplies he used...that Embossing Folder is next on my shopping list!     If you haven't seen Tim's Tag...check it out on his Blog , it's FABULOUS!

Here's my Tag:

Studio L3 Challenge- A Birthday Card for Tim Holtz

For the final CC Challenge Linda challenged us to create a birthday card for Tim using any technique found in either Compendium of Curiosities 1 or 2.  I decided to do a technique that I've been eyeing for some time but hadn't tried yet and I love doing it!  The technique I chose is from Tim's Compendium of Curiosities book 2 and it's called Textured Layering. You can find the technique on page 54. If you don't have Tim's book/s you can purchase them on his website. This technique gives an elegant and yet masculine look which was just what I wanted for Tim's birthday card.  Be sure and check out Linda's Blog for more info on this great challenge!

Now I need to get this Card mailed off!  Happy Birthday Tim!!!

Blitsy Haul..loving my new Art Bin!

I just had to share a photo of my new Art Bin that I bought at Blitsy... it came with 3 magnetic sheets/boards and I purchased an extra 6 of them with the Art Bin.  I've had such a hard time storing my Spellbinders Dies and that problem is now solved!  Last year I made a book to hold them however at the time I only had 3 sets of Spellbinders Dies, now I have about a dozen sets LOL  I am loving this Art Bin! 

If you haven't check out  Blitsy yet, you really should, they have awesome sales 3 times a week on up to date popular Paper Crafting Supplies, Zentangle Books, Dies, Ranger Inks and more. It's my "go to" online shop!
