All things TIM HOLTZ at Creativation 2020!

Hello friends! We are LIVE on the floor at Creativation 2020 and you would not believe all the amazing things we are seeing here!

Tim Holtz has caught our crafty hearts with all his fabulous, new releases and we wanted to show you our favorites that are going to have you as inspired as we are!

Our owner, Heidi Crowl got to catch up with Tim, too!

Over at the Idea-ology booth, we’re head-over-heels about the new collection Tim has curated for the show. Trendy Display Domes make for adorable terrariums, especially when paired with Field Notes ephemera.

And oh my gosh look at all the projects using strings of Tiny Lights!

We’re also beyond stoked about the new Utility Basket Storage Cart! There is something about a new year that makes us all want to get organized. :) The cart’s on-trend style has us itching to fill these sleek baskets with crafty goodness!

If you’re looking to try out a new surface in your mixed media projects, the Fabric Journals really captured our attention! Check out how cool these journals look when adorned with some of Tim’s latest greatest!

This year there is so much more to love from Tim’s Distress line with Ranger Ink! Embossing powders are all the rage right now and the new Distress Embossing Glazes have caught our attention at the show! Check out what you can do with these powders (that coordinate with Tim’s existing Distress ink line)! We also loved seeing Tim’s demo of the Embossing Glazes!

In addition to glaze powders, Tim also release some Texture and Grit Pastes that are definite MUST HAVES!

And to keep up the organization trend, now you can have a handy storage tin for your favorite Distress Ink or Oxide pads!!

We weren’t quite done over at the Ranger booth, because we still had to check out the new Alcohol Ink line up – and you won’t be disappointed at the AMAZING new products we found there!

Fresh, new Alcohol Ink colors and Metallic Alloys were shining on all the inspiration in the booth! Can you see all those yummy colors on your next project?

And not only are there new inks, but also new surfaces! New Yupo papers and a trendy hexagon Hard Core Art Panel displayed an array of gorgeous projects made with these new Alcohol Inks!

We spotted this awesome Alcohol Ink project… check out the way those inks and Alloys pair together SO well!!

Next we popped on over to the Stamper’s Anonymous booth, where we were greeted with yet another overwhelming assortment of inspiration!

We saw cats and critters, oh my!

And the inspiration featuring the Professor harkens us back to another era…

We also found some great new stencils that will be PERFECT for layering as backgrounds and textures. We were especially taken by that trendy Scales stencil!

Tim’s new line up of dies has us abuzz with creative ideas! We’re especially loving the popular Theodore Colorize die set – how cute is he?!?! And check out his new friends, coming soon!

But not only Theodore, we also spotted these fabulous projects featuring many of the new dies in Tim’s collection!

Don’t forget that you can see MORE Creativation coverage on our Facebook and Instagram; we have an amazing Simon team bringing YOU the all the excitement from the floor to the comfort of your home!

  1. OH MY…. I absolutely love everything Tim Holtz!! I am mostly excited about the new pearl alcohol inks! I can’t wait to try them!!

  2. Thanks for showing us all of Tim’s new products–I’m in the midst of an office/craft room purge and am particularly interested in that card. May have to figure out if that’s what I really need! Thanks!

  3. I love new colours! Everything looks fabulous and I wish I could be there in person. Could you image. A cardmaker/crafters dream. Almost need to start a business so I can attend. lol

  4. Thank you for the peek at all the exciting products coming our way. I just love all the projects that were created using them. So talented. I love the new dies “Theodore and Friends.” That design is so unique.

  5. I am the absolute worse Tim Holtz Idealogy junkie in the whole world. Needless to say I want all of the new line. Must have the bunny and boxes dies. I need a rich relative.

  6. Oh my goodness how exciting it must be there to see all of this great stuff all in one place??? Awesome new inks nd the Alloys look interesting.

  7. I cannot even imagine how fun it must be to be at Creativation in person. I get butterflies in my stomach just looking at the photo’s! I love everything TH and this post was just amazing!!

  8. Hello and dear Stephanie and dear ones who have access to T Tim Holtz, Let him write to me. I have written to him many times and I really don’t know if you have read them or if they really can’t help me. If it is not, because with this entertainment my life has changed, I would not insist so much. My Wife that is for me, my life since we have been 32 years of meeting and 29 married, says that although it does not serve anything I do, it was worth the impulse that a friend gave me, yes, I gave myself a Cricut Maker. I did not know all this world that made me get up from my bed, since I had more than 4 years, surgery, chronic depression, and economic difficulties because I live from my disability. Well, with 29 years I suffered an accident in the place that I loved so much and worked so hard with my work. I worked in a company where we made the interiors of the Private Planes of the Arab Erimatos. I’ve been 21 years old, where I still can’t accept it because it was my passion to work in CNC. I forgot to design and now I can’t even pay for Adobe Illustrator, to design flowers and other forms of entertainment in this medium. The inks cost the papers and the prints and the die or think, because I accept that it is a luxury, in me it is a necessity to live. I have neither credit nor my disability nor to pay a dentist or drug co-payments anything else. Please help me . Tim Holtz if you want you can and if you can help me to make, not only flowers, cards and even if you want me to help you I would gladly do it. Please Tim Help me not to have to stay in this bed for more depressions. Use empathy and I will greatly appreciate your help. God bless you. Sincerely and waiting for your help Natan Gonzalez
