Christmas was my dad's favourite time of year and we are all determined to celebrate it as best we can in his honour. I have a few projects that I had completed before his passing, but I haven't shared so I will be doing this, hopefully this week. One of these is my last post with the Tim Holtz Media Team. Tim has made the decision and I'm sure a very hard one for him, to end the Media Team. He has worked very hard to build his brand and, as far as I'm concerned, has the best customer and fan base ever! I can see why he has missed them and the interaction on his blog. Working in a store, and helping customers with their purchases, projects, sharing ideas and just inspiring them is so rewarding for me and I know I would miss that part of scrapbooking if it ever ended. I am so lucky and grateful that I was chosen to represent the Tim Holtz brand, even if it was for a short time. So, hopefully I can finish editing my photos and post my tutorial this week.
For now, here is a card I have done for the Sizzix Design Team:
This card has lots of layers! I embossed the top layer with Sizzix's Tim Holtz 660043 Holiday Knit folder, then die-cut the center out with Tim Holtz Labels thinlit die . The edge was accented with Liquid Pearls. The next layer was die-cut with Tim's Block Holiday Words thinlit set. These thinlit dies use the negative space. I cut this slightly larger than the embossed layer and pop-dotted it to the woodgrain patterned paper (from Webster's Pages Nest and also Gingerbread Collection). I then added in a red cardstock layer, slightly larger than the die-cut paper. I finished off with another white cardstock layer, about 1/4 border all around. This was adhered to my white cardstock base.
My white winter greens were die-cut using the Tim Holtz Holiday Greens thinlit die set. I can't stop using this die set! Love, love, love!! To finish off my card, I added in some Petaloo Sugared Blooms.
Thanks for stopping by,
