It's not exactly earth-shattering news that I am quite fond of all things Tim Holtz, so I guess it was inevitable that I would want to share that love with my fellow crafty friends here where I live. Inspired by Tim himself and Studio L3's design challenges, I recently started my own All Things Tim group where we gather once a month to create something totally Tim, designed by me.
Our first get-together is August 5th. I've been working away on the first project using Tim's Vintage Valise Alterations die. I knew when I first saw this die that it would make the coolest little travel journal. Then I caught a glimpse of a similar idea in a video at Winter CHA at Tim's booth. From that point on, I was consumed with the idea to make this project.
Although I'm not finished, I thought I would put up some photos as it is coming together.
This little valise measures roughly 4.25 x 6 inches.
To create a mini album, I built a spine and added a large ring binder inside. (Tim Holtz Idea-ology)
The spine is held together using Sticky Back Canvas.
With the help of just a few Close To My Heart vintage style postage and travel stamps, I decorated the spine.
As I finish more I'll share with you, so stay tuned and thanks for stopping by today. Enjoy your Saturday!
