Autumn stamped a background with Patchwork Pieces onto an altered Scrabble board game, layering a Found Relative image with the Tim Holtz Doily die.


Andrea made a box to remind her of her new year’s goal.  She used texture paste, Tim Holz’s Townscape On the Edge die and A Bit Jaded Infusions colored stain.


Anna-Karin worked in her square Dylusions journal and used various square stencils by StencilGirl, together with Dina Wakley’s paints..


Barbara has decided to create a birthday card! To do this she used a square stamp by Tim Holtz – Perspective set,  mixed with Bird crazy and Distress ink, perfect trio!


Cathie created a vintage style 4×4 square box using a Martha Stewart Score Board and embellished it with Simon Says Stamp Large Falling Hearts stencil, Love Is background stamp and the Love 2 die set.


Emma created layer upon layer of squares to create a card celebrating friendship and used numerous Tim Holtz products, including the Linen Layering Stencil, a vintage photo booth image and a Small Talk Sticker.


Kath has decided her New Year Resolution will be to use up left over crafting bits and pieces so a pile of Stitched Squares and Plush Blooming Heart Flowers die-cut from Felt were used to make thank you cards for the Christmas gifts she received


Lols made a square Post-It Note holder using a Tim Holtz Mini Crazy Cat and a Memory Box Grand Stick Frame Die  She made this as a gift and has made a coordinating card too.


Macarena made a square card with square frame and little black gesso squares using Time Travelers stamp with Stay Strong die and Grungy Grid stencil.


Maura transformed a piece of junk mail into a mini album, using Seth Apter’s Robo Square die and Window 3 stamp, along with a lot of paint and stencils.


Meihsia was inspired to create a mini square canvas with Prima Flowers Grungy Butterflies and Tim Holtz Distress Paints.


Sandra made a thank you card with some Infusions Stains she is now crazy about, Opal Magic Rose-Gold Paint and the Tiles stencil from Tim Holtz

Zoey used Distress Crayons and Tim Holtz Idea Ology Photobook to create these journal card to add to her art journal pages
