Andrea made a page in her new Dina Wakley 6×6 white Media Journal and used Inky Antics’ Quirky Alphabet stamps in the background.  She added color using a Seth Apter Eclectica3 ESA10 stamp.

Anna-Karin made a tag with three words and a whole lot of ‘A’s die cut from the background. The words were die cut with Tim Holtz’s Sizzix Traveler Words and the butterflies with the Mini Detailed Butterflies and Springtime Side-Order sets.

Barbara created a steampunk Tiny House using  Tim Holtz Stencil TypoTim Holtz Mini Stencil set 1, Tim Holtz Sizzix Faceted HeartIdeaology Mini Gears and a lot of Ranger Distress paints.  

Cheiron is a huge fan of the typography in the Tim Holtz Motivation 1 stamp set. It practically speaks for itself, so she added a bright panel of Alcohol Inks and Alcohol Pearls made on Ranger Heavy Yupo paper.

Emma feels the love in the air this week and created a canvas panel inspired by a song, using Tim Holtz’s Deco Alpha Die and Cutout Script die to add the lettering down the side. She completed the panel with one of the new Paper Dolls and the Botanical Layering pieces, (shipping around March).

Kath used Tim Holtz/Sizzix Word PlayBigzXL die for the wording and to add texture to the background, Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Inventor 8, Fragments and Idea-ology Found Relatives and PhotoBooth to create a photography themed Art Journal Page in her Dina Wakley Media Journal.

Lols made a card using a Simon Says Stamp Good Reading Background cling stamp and a Lotus Flowers Clear Stamp and Coordinating Die SetThis image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is DSC08268.jpg

Macarena played with a mix of Dyan Reaveley School Alpha stencil and Simon Says Stamp Good Reading Background stamp for her typography and placed lots of bees from Tim Holtz Entomology since she’s missing the Spring so much.

Maura made a Valentine home decor piece using Tim Holtz Idea-ology Typography Letters , the Tim Holtz Mini Stencil 3 set and Tim Holtz Idea-ology Word Bands in a grey, black and pink color scheme.

Meihsia was inspired to create an art journal page with Tim Holtz Cling Rubber Stamp Valentines Silhouettes and decorated it with Prima Flowers.

Sandra made an art journal spread using different type of fonts like the Word Play die, the Alpha Embossing Folder to add some texture, and for even more texture she used the Typo stencil with Texture Paste and Black Soot Distress Paint.

Zoey used Word Play die and a bunch of distress paint to add color and texture to this Ranger Tag that she decorated using Tim Holtz Paper dolls
