It is Amy’s last week with us in the Designer Spotlight. We have thoroughly enjoyed having you along with us Amy and we would like to thank you so much for all of your fabulous creations over the past month.

Amy used a stamped Dina Wakley image as a mask, Dylusions paints, and number stencils from Tim Holtz and Faber Castell to make her colorful art journal pages.

Andrea made a flashy folder to hold her ephemera and scraps.  Several Tim Holtz products came in handy this week such as the Bouquet, the Quote Chips, and the Numeric stamps.

Anna-Karin did a double scrapbooking layout this week, which has a number theme, and uses a bunch of different types of numbers. There is the Numeric stencil by Tim Holtz, number stamps and numbers die cut with, for example, the Tim Holtz Sizzix Broadway die.

Barbara this week has used a lot of   Numbers stencils by Tim Holtz   to create his own little Steampunk Village. Prima Marketing Patina Effect Paste, Tim Holtz Sizzix Tiny Houses and Tim Holtz Sizzix Diamon Plate & Riveted Metal Texture Fades have been her tools to build it!

Cathie created an old rustic garden scene using the Simon Says Stamp Leaves Stencil, Tim Holtz Trellis Frameworks die and a few Distress Crayons. The oval frame is cut from the Tim Holtz Stitched Ovals die painted with Prima Rust Effect Paste.

Emma used a Mini Clipboard as the base for her project which is packed full of vintage nostalgia, including a beautiful image from the Paper Dolls set, a Sizzix Doily and the year which is made up using Letterpress Blocks.

Kath decorated an Idea-ology Flip Frame to create a Wildflower Desk Calendar using Dylusions Creative Dyary and Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Numeric and Number Block stamps

Macarena made a Birthday card where the age is just a number… She used some Infusions on her background and the bold Cardo Stencil Number die set in a contrast with delicate Pointed Feathers die set by Simon Says Stamp. All the project is slightly touched with Pure Platinum Nuvo Mousse

When Maura saw numbers, she thought of the telephone, so out came the Tim Holtz phone sketch stamp and one of Dina Wakley’s Positive Women to create a tag with lots of Tim Holtz Eclectic Elements craft threads.

Meihsia created a mixed media birthday card this week with several numbers on it using Tim Holtz Layering Stencil Crate on the background and Tim Holtz Alpha Parts Numeric as the sentiment.
