Lucky Tag with Erica

Hello again! It’s Erica, and today I’m sharing another project featuring some great new products from Tim Holtz.

I started with a plain manila tag, which I inked with watered-down Distress Ink. Once it was dry, I layered some papers from the Memoranda collection with a Thrift Shop Vellum Ephemera. Then I randomly added a gold Ranger Foil Sheet to give it a touch of glam.

I paired a Tim Holtz Paperdoll with a butterfly from the Layers Botanical set, which I glittered with Diamond Stickles. Our little fairy wears a dress that I tinted with Distress Markers and embellished with a small mirrored heart.

 I blinged up with green flower with glitter and sequins, and tinted the other flowers using Distress Ink and water.

The sentiment is a Tim Holtz Quote Chip. Seam binding dyed with more Distress Ink finishes the tag.

Dreamer of Dreams with Erica

Hello! It’s Erica, and today I’m sharing another project I made using some of the new products from Tim Holtz.

I started with a wooden Tim Holtz Vignette Tray, that I turned into a home for this little june bug. The Tim Holtz Quote Chips and Paperdolls provided great inspiration for each of the projects I’ve shared. I could feel their personalities wanting to come out, and I hope I spoke well for them.

This little guy needed a perch to rest on, so I gave him one of my vintage wooden spools. The paper is from the Memoranda collection, which is perfect for a vintage and distress lover like me! The paper is wonderfully layered with bits of ephemera and then given an aged and distressed look.

I made a little wall hanging for the abode using a metal charm blank that I filled with some of the new Rose Design Tape and a chit chat sticker. I sealed it all with Glossy Accents.

In his little corner of the world, you will find a Tim Holtz Ruler Piece, T.H. Corked Vial, T.H. Lightbulb, T.H. Adornment Key, Maya Road mini spool, and Maya Road buttons.

I’d say our little dapper fellow has quite the collection going on!

Jaxson Ellis Layout by Ginger

I did this for the design team at The Crafty Scrapper.  I was given these papers by Authentique.

I used the back side and it worked very well with the photo.  This little cutie is my new grandson.  He was just 5 days old!

 He melts my heart.  I now have 3 grandsons and two granddaughters and each is so special!

I used several stencils, modeling paste, and die cuts.  

You can find this at The Crafty Scrapper and on the back you will find a list of items that I used.

Thank you for looking and have a wonderful day!

Hugs – Ginger
