Simona created a layout framing a sweet Tim Holtz Idea-ology Paper Doll. For the background she used ‘French Industrial’ paper and Worn Wallpaper, a  Gothic Layering Stencil, and Ranger Grit Paste. She also used an AALL & CREATE ‘Magnify It’ stamp set a  Totally Dotty Stencil and used Small Talk stickers for the sentiments.

Anna-Karin made a tag with tree photo slide frames. The frames were stamped with the Simon Says Stamp Mix and Match Squares stamp set and the textured background was done with the Lumen embossing folder.

Barbara created a card framing The Professor of the homonymous set by Tim Holtz / Stampers Anonymous. She used Tim Holtz / Sizzix Circuit 3D Texture Fades Embossing Folder, a lot of Tim Holtz / Ranger Distress Colors and Simon Says Stamp Cardstock Black.

Cheiron created a tag with a Tim Holtz Found Relative and a Curio Frame as her focal point for her tag. Her background was made with the Dotted Stencil, Numeric Stencil, Faded Type stamps and Media Marks 2 stamps. She finished her tag with a Snarky Small Talk Sticker.

Emma used a Vignette Frame and a Curio Frame to create a layered focal point to her vintage style Vignette Box which she covered with Worn Wallpaper Scraps. She added a Solo Paper Doll, a Mini Flair Embellishment and Clippings Sticker to complete the project.

Kath used Tim Holtz/Sizzix Funky Floral Large and Alphanumeric Shadow Lower Thinlits to create her Hello Friend Slimline card and added Idea-ology Entomology Collage Paper circle frames to the background die-cut with Nesting Circle dies

Macarena made a card for the 50th Wedding Anniversary and went gold turning the Prima Marketing Chantilly Royal Frame into a golden beauty using Brutus Monroe Gilded Sparkle Embossing Powder. She brightened up this royal look with white Tim Holtz Sizzix Brushstroke Flowers dies.

Maura made a framed home decor piece, using the beautiful Perspective Butterfly by Tim Holtz/Sizzix, along with Tim Holtz’s Backdrops Volume 2, Tim Holtz/Ranger Crackle Distress Texture Paste, and Tim Holtz/Idea-ology Gadget Gears.

Meihsia was inspired to create a mixed media frame with Tim Holtz Idea-Ology Lace Baseboard Frame and Found Relatives photo on it, and decorated it with Tim Holtz Idea-Ology Hardware Heads and Findings Quote Band.

Sandra framed the Sizzix Circle Dome with Metallic-3 Kraftstock to highlight the bug from Entomology and added some texture to the frame with the Foundry 3D Embossing Folder
