Hello everyone Lisahere with another fun Christmas project, which as you can tell from the title features lots of Tim Holtz!
A couple of years ago when Tim announced he had partnered up with Sizzix I think it was the best day of my life….well after my wedding, and birth of my children! LOL
Of all the Tim Holtz dies I think my favorites are the Christmas dies, the shapes are totally classic, with a hint of vintage.
I created the base for this project a few months ago and I’ve been staring at it since trying to decide how I wanted to finish it. Well over the weekend a light bulb went on and I knew exactly what I wanted to do!
The base of this was an old ribbon spool that I rescued from the store. I added some chipboard circles to the base & top to make it more sturdy, then wrapped the centre with hemp cording, everything else was created using Tim Holtz dies.
This snowman dies is one of my absolute favorites, you will be seeing lots of him! I cut it out using some white chipboard, then coated it with Distress Stickles Dry Rock Candy Glitter. It’s so hard to capture how amazing the Rock Candy looks, you can just see a touch of the glittery effect in this close up. Believe me when I say it looks just like fresh fluffy sparkly snow!
Next to the snowman dies, the new Tattered Poinsettia is my second favorite die…and I can’t wait to get my hands on the coordinating embossing folder!
I hope you’ll all remember to look at things before you toss them in the trash and try to imagine what you could turn them into!
If you would like any of the dies I’ve used, just drop Lori a note and she’ll do what she can to order them in!
Thanks for stopping by today!
