Ode To Tim

Well... if you don't know about ol' Tim Holtz (his popularity and the creation he inspires in this crafting world),  you will certainly know by the end of this post!  Danielle a.k.a. FitterTwit here for another installment from our oh-so-amazing design team.  This week our designers were challenged to create a vintage "Tim Holtz-esque" project and they delivered!  MAN, DID THEY DELIVER!!!  Paper Vineyard carries many goodies from the Tim Holtz line from embellishments to dies and embossing folders, and now we stock the full line of Tim Holtz Adirondack papers!!!  Swing by the store for more info... you can also check out some of the projects you're about to see in real life!!!

Lover of curios?  Check out this AWESOME one from our BELOVED Gayl.  Perfectly weathered and distressed, this curio was created using My Mind's Eye paper from the Lush collection along with Teresa Collins paper and My Mind's Eye brads.  The legs, Top button and design idea were pure Tim Holtz!  Other design embellies including the black clothes pin and Prima goodies can also be found at Paper Vineyard.  I wanna know where she got the knob!  This is so UNREAL!!!

Here's another close up of this gem!!!

OOOOOO... and we're not done yet!  Marijo brings us another GORGEOUS vintage curio featuring Tim Holtz paper, Tiny Attacher, Metal flower and leaves.  Marijo also used the Cricut Heritage Cartridge which really was the perfect choice for this wonderful project!  She added the creative touch with the Making Memories keys and various embellies from Paper Vineyard.  Again... nice handle!!!

Look how she used the Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher!!!  We love that thing here at PV!

And finally we have Pam's OUTRAGEOUSLY STUNNING trinket box!!!  I'm completely speechless by how UNREAL this box is! Pam really unearthed the treasures at Paper Vineyard with this one using the Paper Mache boxes we carry with the Tim Holtz Box Feet Foundations, Tim Holtz ribbon trim, Tim Holtz Adirondack paper and alcohol ink in Pesto and Gold Metallic, embellishments from Prima, Kaiser Craft, We R Memory Keepers, Olive Branch Shimmerz Spritz, Bazzill buttons and Archival Ink in Coffee.

This sideways view shows how Pam really payed complete attention to detail on this one!

Ok folks... that about does it for today.  I am completely gaga for each of these AWESOME projects!!!  Just when I think our design team has outdone themselves (check out last week's crafty goodness), they blow me away with yet more BRILLIANCE!!!  Thanx for joining us to see all these masterpieces.  Our design team will be relaxing next week for the Easter Holiday, but will be back with more delicious creations in May.

  1. I love everyone's projects. It's always amazing that, given the same basic supplies, that each of us create something so different. Keep up the great work ladies!
