As I've posted many times I am a huge fan of G45 but I am also a lover of all things Tim Holtz. I'm not sure if I've mentioned his products before in my posts but I do use them often in my cards and crafts. I follow him on Facebook and Pinterest as well as anyone I see that posts and/or pins anything by him. So, I finally am getting up the nerve...and yes I'm nervous...to take one of his challenges. I actually have a lot of his products that I've never used so I challenged myself to use all Tim Holtz. Wellllll, I came close. The figure is from an old paper doll book I picked up at a flea market several years ago, the ribbon is SU and the words that I cut out as part of the background are a Cricut product. I don't have a lot of die cuts that are words, not do I have a lot of stickers that are words. I'm sure I could have typed them out but I find that I am word challenged and nothing really came to me. I'm sure it will later but I wanted to get this posted before I chickened out! So, here is my tag (also my first tag ever created) for the Tim Holtz August 2015 challenge. Be kind!
I also created my first spool, also inspired by a posting on Pinterest and yes, using G45 papers. I posted a picture of this on my FB page and had some really nice comments. I love the way it came out and am starting on my next one. I found the spools at the flea market and they are so great that I hated to cover them but if I don't start using the goodies in my craft room I'm not going to be able to get into my craft room!
