It’s Frosty Out There!

I don’t know about where you are but it is FREEZING here! Perfect weather though to lock myself in my craft space and have some fun!

If you haven’t heard the Online Store is back up with lots loaded already!!!

Also Lori has this adorable Snowman Kit available for pre-order, it’s custom designed and cut just for Love Is In The Details!

You can order it HERE.

Earlier this week a pizza box full of fun new goodies was waiting for me when I got home, including one of the Snowman kits!

It comes with all the MDF and papers you need to put it together…

Of course you could try something a little more adventurous, just set those papers  aside (don’t toss them though they can be used on another project).

As always I was up for more of a challenge, and wanted to make him unique so I pulled out lots of fun supplies and grunged him up!

I covered his body with Finnabair Platinum Crackle Paste, once it was dry I sprayed Walnut Distress Spray over top to get in all those little cracks and age him a bit more.

I ran the paper that came for the hat through my Bigshot using a gear embossing folder.  Then I rubbed different colours of Finnabair wax to bring out the texture!

The arms and scarf were covered in Distress Embossing powder…I LOVE the texture that embossing powder gives, and so sad you can’t buy it anymore.

I added a bunch of gears, using some of the custom LIITD laser cut chipboard and Tim Holtz gears.  Even used them for his eyes!

He was so fun to make, taking this great kit and making it my own!

Lori has re-opened this kit so hurry and order yours before they are all gone!

A Very Tim Christmas!

Christmas is sneaking up on us once again, I hope you’re all getting in the spirit of the holidays!!

If you’ve been to the store lately or follow in social media you’ve seen all the amazing new Tim Holtz goodies Lori has in store!

I picked up my fair share when I visited the store for Lori’s annual open house.  Yup I’m in love with it all!

For the base of my project I used a Tim Holtz Vignette Box, I’ve had these in my stash for a while just waiting for the right project.  All of the papers are also from Tim Holtz, 8×8 Christmas paper pack.

Look how adorable those little Decorative Deer are!!!  I coloured them with alcohol inks to bring them to life!

The Mini & Small Trees were sprayed with a dark green mist, then I brushed some white gesso & glitter onto the branches to give them a snowy effect.  The misting process was quite messy but so worth it!

In the top corner I pulled out the Tattered Poinsettia & Holiday Green dies.  Similar to the trees I added some white gesso and glitter to the greens giving them that snow kissed look!  The center of the poinsettia was finished with Tim’s Beaded Berries…OMG so perfect!!

I even dug up an old Tim Holtz tutorial to make the fake snow for the my little deer & trees to sit in!  I think this vintage Santa from the Christmas Ephemera pack was the perfect way to finish off my little Christmas shadow box!

There are still some goodies left at the store, but you might want to hurry so you have time to finish all your Christmas projects before the big day!
