Christmas Time it is!

Wow - that is about all I can say! It has been a very busy last month (or so) and it doesn't look like it is ready to slow down anytime soon! You have all kept me hoping in the shop (hence the lack of posts on the blog)! Aside from the shop - my family has been doing the same!

There is a ton of new stuff at the shop and there will be nothing new coming in now until the new year...inventory is at the end of the month so I really do not want anymore to count than I have to!

With everyone jumping on the Tim Wagon - I restocked the Stampers Anonymous stamps so you too could have some fun. I didn't get to as many as I had wanted (I only got to two) as life as usual got in the way. Here are the two I was able to do...

Notice the difference from this one to his original? Of course it is not a cool as his - but I will say I like my bird better! I didn't have the proper die so I went a hunting on the net for a cardinal (which for some reason means Christmas to me) found a good one - printed it off and traced the image onto grunge board and followed the rest of his steps! Don't be afraid to adapt the tags to use what you have as well. The whole purpose of the tags is simply INSPIRATION (and of course techniques). If you don't have the exact stamp he uses - look through your stash of stamps or stickers and use them!

I did have some great brain waves of what I was going to do with all the ones I was going to make though...wanna hear?

How about displaying them on this? Clip them on and show them off!Or why not try the Photo Carousel?

You've worked hard on these tags - why not show them off?! You can even simply use a bulletin board that hangs in your craft room for continuous inspiration...you decide!

Another brainwave I had - was why keep it to 12 tags of Christmas? Why not do the same for Valentines Day, Easter, Halloween, Summer, Winter...you get the idea?! Use your stamps, papers, stickers, inks and paints - go ahead, have some fun!

Other new items include - Tim Holtz's Color Wash, Idealogy, Re Inkers, Alterations, Grungeboard Elements ; KI Memories Sew Cute Die Cut Calendar pages; Maya Road; Bazzill Envelopes and so much more!
