I'm super-excited to share this one with you!!!
I can't tell you how happy and fortunate I feel right now! I've had an amazing opportunity to create a few card using the new Tim Holtz products. I got to play with his new releases. This includes the gorgeous Cracked Pistachio Distress Ink Pad, Abandoned Coral ink pad, Mermaid Lagoon Distress Paint and the Distress Spray! What more I had the pleasure of using the gorgeous new Blossom Layering Stencil! Oh I can't tell you how much I love it. I also got to play with the fabulous Mini Blueprint stamps (Sewing & Travel). Oh I had so much. Fun.
When I design my cards for the magazine I have to bare in mind that beginner crafters might like to try my techniques and try to recreate my cards (and I hope they do) so I try to keep them simple yet interesting. I've always loved Tim Holtz's products for one simple reason. They are so versatile and so easy to use! The variety of colours from fresh to vintage, the embellishments, the papers, stencils and dies.. I think we can all agree that Tim Holtz is a master in his field. I have a great respect for this wonderful man and am grateful for bringing such wonderful products to this market. Thank you, Tim!
Keeping this quiet was very, very hard and now I don't have to! Yay! Thank you, Simply Cards & Papercraft, Amy & Natalie, for sending me a copy. Gratefully received today! What a wonderful surprise indeed! I was on the way from work when I checked the shelves of my local newsagent and couldn't see it... And now look.. Guess who has her card right next to Tim Holtz on the front cover.. ?!
Now seriously.. This is one super-awesome exclusive interview with Tim Holtz for you all brought to you by the UK top-selling cardmaking and craft magazine that you DO NOT WANT TO MISS!!! If you buy craft magazines this is one to keep! I certainly will!
I promise to tell you about the cards I made in detail at a later date! Stay tuned!
Thank you for visiting today! Big hugs,
