Hello Scrappers! It’s Ginger today with this little layout I did for the Design Team here at The Crafty Scrapper. These papers are from Photo Play – Think To Remember Collection. This little girl is my sweet granddaughter Kenzie. She is trying to learn to make some cookies and she did a great job!
I used so many different techniques. I used two stencils, micro Beads, Gelatos, stamps and etc.
Please see the close-ups!
To find out all that I used on this layout please visit The Crafty Scrapper and on the back of this layout are the instructions.
Hi Everyone! I hope you have enjoyed your Summer and are ready to start preparing for some holiday projects! Today I have for you a configuration box using Idea-ology Vignette Boxes and Graphic 45’s Hallowe’en In Wonderland paper and sticker collection.
To begin, I chose 4 designs of the paper, measured and cut paper to fit inside the 3 largest boxes and also to fit the flat side of the smallest box. I also cut strips of paper to wrap around 3 sides of each box and the insides to each box. I find that these boxes vary a bit in size, so it is best to measure each of the boxes as you go so that you get the paper measured and cut to fit. I sponged all the paper pieces in this project with the Walnut Stain Distress Ink.
Top box: the inside is lined with 3 of the playing cards, just choose the 3 you like best. I used strips of chipboard, placed them on the back of each card so that I could add dimension within the box. Glue the 3 cards into place. Largest box: I cut the image out to fit, added Bazzill Tangerine Blast brads around the outside of the box. I cut off the prongs as I wanted only the circle to embellish the sides of this box. Next, I sponged a strip of cheesecloth with Walnut Stain Distress Ink. I wanted this to look a little bit grungy. I glued this into the box, added a bit of shredded paper and the a pumpkin from the Idea-ology Pumpkin Pieces in the right hand corner. I also added a couple skeleton head beads around the pumpkin. Smallest box: I covered it and them cut out the Hallowe’en in Wonderland playing card. Added a strip of chipboard to the back and glued it to the box. I added some of the word stickers from the sticker sheet. For the final box, I used one of the stickers from the sticker sheet, added chipboard and placed it in the box to give dimension. I cut out the cat, witch and pumpkins and glued them to the box. These also add great dimension to the project. Once all of the boxes are done, I glued them together into the configuration in the photos. I used Scotch liquid glue to hold them all together.
Using a Wink of Stella Brush in Shimmer Orange, I added detail to some of the orange areas. This adds a nice sparkle in just the right places! It’s hard to tell in the pics, but the shimmer is there! I also found the little spider in my stash, added some black stickles to him to make him sparkle. Yes, spiders have to sparkle too! This completes my Hallowe’en In Wonderland configuration box project. I hope you like it and if you want to create one come see us at the store and we will help you find all of the supplies! See you at my next post! Lori

Good morning everyone, Carolyn here! I hope you have enjoyed our posts from Gena and Anita on the Tim Holtz paddles we did for his visit. When ever we have a guest artist we make paddles out of their products. With Tim Holtz coming to the store and his large product line we thought we would step it up, and we did! Each of us took 12-16 numbers and completed these amazing paddles.
I have been doing his Christmas tags and year tags since 2007 and have enjoyed the process as a crafter wanting to learn new techniques to add to my projects. My tags are a collection of things I have learned throughout the years and a few are recent 2016 tags. Visit Tim’s blog for step by step on these tags, he has all past Christmas tags lists on the side bar. http://timholtz.com/blog/
#27 was a lot of fun. Anita and I did this one together, its always fun to see what happens when it all comes together. As she worked on the wings and dress form I worked on the background and number!
Hi guys, Gena here with my paddles that I did for the special event with Tim Holtz.
I have always been inspired by the tags series Tim does in his blog, so I went thru the years and tutorials and made my paddles. He makes it so easy with step by step instructions and pictures to follow with each technique.
Here is a link to the tags on his blog: http://timholtz.com/category/12-tags-of-2016/
Check it out! I know you will enjoy and learn so many techniques!
Hi Crafty Scrappers!!! Anita Houston, The Artful Maven, here today, to point you over to my blog to see 16 of the 43 paddles that were made for the Tim Holtz event back in July. Carolyn had so many people interested in seeing them, so hop on over to see mine, and Gena and Carolyn, who made the rest will show you the ones they made in the coming days, so look for them. Thanks for having me everyone!
Hello! It’s Erica, and I’m back this month with a layout using the Tim Holtz Dapper collection. This collection is full of vintage ephemera images that have a great masculine feel. I knew it was perfect to highlight this photo of my grandfather (on the left) and his friend.
I started with one of the 12×12 papers in the collection for my background, and then added multiple layers of Distress Paint, Distress Stain, modeling paste, and Distress Inks. I used stencils for the modeling paste bricks and the inked stars. I used a Tim Holtz background stamp with Picket Fence Distress Paint for the random circles in the background. Then I layered several of the 6×6 and smaller patterns from the collection.
To add even more depth and age to the project, I layered a vintage air mail envelope and stamp into the collage. I painted the Tim Holtz flag die cut with Distress Ink in Faded Denim and Fired Brick and pewter Distress Pint.
A mirrored star and measuring tape trim complete the collage.
