Lori made a Christmas decoration using an assortment of Tim Holtz/Idea-ology items to transform a Christmas Curio Clock into a winter wonderland. She created a snowfall background on silver kraft stock, added in 3 woodland trees strung with tiny lights, and positioned a snowman to watch over. To embellish the exterior, she attached baubles, confections, metallic droplets, mica flakes, and topped it off with a flourish adornment.

Andrea created a banner for her craft room using Pinkfresh Studio’s Ornate Banner Essentials die set, Honey Bee’s Stacking Banners die set, and Tim Holtz’s Cutout Uppers and Cutout Lowers alphabet dies for the sentiment.

Anna-Karin made two small fridge magnets using Ranger Opaque Texture Paste and Simon Says Stamp Cosmo Flowers stencil and Mix and Match Circles Stencil. The glitter and stars come from Ranger’s Nebula Stickles Glitter Gel.

Barbara has created a small series of Halloween themed decorations that can also be used as place cards for the table. She used the Tim Holtz Sizzix Retro Halloween Thinlits Dies, Idea-ology Halloween Deco Sheets, Idea-ology Halloween Confections, Tim Holtz Idea-ology Fringe, Tim Holtz Idea-ology Confections Candy Corn.

Cheiron created a mixed media canvas panel on a piece of Dina Wakley Media Board. She incorporated the Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Floral Outline Stamps, Sizzix Christmas Cutouts, and the Dotted stencil along with layers of Distress Paints and Foundry Wax Splatter.

Emma couldn’t resist making one last Halloween project before the 31st October and she created a creepy laboratory using a combination of Vignette Boxes, and Square Vignettes. She added plenty of Tim Holtz idea-ology products to bring this eerie scene to life which includes Tiny Lights, Cauldron, a Birdcage and Toadstools.

Kath created a Christmas Banner using Tim Holtz/Sizzix Framed Tags/Alphanumeric Shadow Upper Thinlits, Stampers Anonymous Darling Christmas/Merchant stamp sets and Idea-ology Christmas Backdrops/Christmas Deco Sheets and Mirrored Stars.

Macarena decided to frame one of her holiday’s finding – a stoned heart she found on the beach. A base of her home decor is the Tim Holtz Medium Tag Thickboards which she colored with shades of deep blue as Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Uncharted Mariner Spray.

Maura created a Kokopelli figure using a wood piece her husband cut out, Dina Wakley paints such as Turquoise and Sedona, and Tim Holtz Foundry Waxes.

Meihsia was inspired to create three mini mixed media easels using Stamperia KLIMT 6×6 Paper on the background, and decorated them with Tim Holtz Idea-ology ENGRAVING LAYERS and Tim Holtz Idea-ology LABEL STICKERS THOUGHTS.

So now it’s YOUR turn to get out your inks, paints and all things arty and start creating! We are looking forward to seeing what you make!
