It really has been such a pleasure to have you along with us and we would like to wish you a Very Merry Christmas and the Happiest of Happy New Years :-)

Ann is celebrating the new year with a pop-up full of possibility. The inside features Tim Holtz metallic kraft highlighting the cityscape skyline and alphanumeric sentiment, while the card front showcases mixed media harlequin, and billboard numbers. She’s sharing all the details on her blog.

Andrea revamped a Prima Traveler’s Journal and gave it a Party Time sentiment.  She used Dina Wakley’s For the Love of Circles stamp set, Prima Oil Pastels and Prima Basics watercolor pencils.

Anna-Karin made a bright and joyful tag, using Andrea Ockey Parr’s stamps by Inky Antics: The Queen’s Quips and Muse News, together with Tim Holtz’s Tiles stencil.

Barbara has created a themed panel with Tim Holtz Idea-ology Collage frames, Tim Holtz Idea- ology Christmas Paper dolls, Tim Holtz Ephemera Pack Christmas snippets, Tim Holtz stencil Polkadot, Tim Holtz Idea-ology Forest Collage Paper and Tim Holtz Distress Glitter Dust Vintage Platinum.

Emma created a vintage style panel full of sparkle to celebrate the start of a new year around the world. She used Tim Holtz’s Dimensional Stars, glittered with glass glitter and layered a Paper Doll over the top of some Ephemera pieces and a Mini Globe.

Kath used Tim Holtz/Sizzix Stacked Tags Thinlits to create invitations to her Boxing Day party, decorated with Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Winter Watercolor and the Mint Shifter Stencil from Mini Stencil Set 37 and used Tim Holtz/Sizzix Alphanumeric CutOut Lower Thinlits for the wording.

Lols made a Celebration Card using a new Shimmer Burst Background Die and Everyday Words On A Line Die Set  from Simon’s Exclusive Diecember Release 

Macarena made a New Year’ celebration card using Tim Holtz Wine Blueprints stamp and the SSS DieCember Celebrate die and she used a lot of Distress Oxide inks.

Maura  thought of the movie “Happy Feet” and created a Penguin party with Jazz players in her art journal. She used the Hero Arts Color Layering Baby Penguin stamps, Visible Image’s Jazz It Up set, Inky Antics Circles and Stems, and The Crafters Workshop Mini Galaxy stencil. 

Meihsia was inspired to create a mixed media tag using Tim Holtz Cling Rubber Stamp Birthday Blueprint and Mini Blueprint Strip Beer Cling Stamp to decorate it.

Sandra made her birthday invite with the Simon Says Rounded Alphabet die and made a background with Infusions on Heavystock, which work perfectly together.

Zoey used this amazing wafer die Simon Says Stamp Felicity Snowflake Dies that she Gold Embossed with Simon Says Stamp Embossing Powder Antique Gold Ultra fine.
