Christmas Page Swap

You gotta Believe!!!

OK, I did it. I made it before the dead line. I had some doubts for a while that I could do it, but I did. There are 16 in the swap this time.
You were to make a 6 x 6 page for each member using Tim Holtz products and techniques.

I decided instead of using traditional Reds, Greens, and Golds, that I would go completely Black and White with some Silver and Gray.

Full Page Layout

I stamped the images in black. The snowman is embossed with Distress Powder and the snowflakes are embossed with holographic embossing powder.

I used different pattern papers on the back of each one. And stamped some invisible angels.
Can you see one?

Another angel is hiding here.

I hope the recipients like them. I had fun creating them. Leave me a comment and let me know what you think...

Valentines in November?

Ok, Ok , everyone has heard of Christmas in July, but Valentines in November? No I haven't gone crazy its just the latest swap I'm a member of on the All Things Tim Yahoo group. Several of us are doing altered calendar pages and mine is February. I just finished them up tonight and they will be going out in the mail this week. I loved working on it and know that I will cherish all the wonderful art that will make up the final 2010 calendar. Below are some pictures of the pages I created for everyone. Next up Christmas Page swap.. More fitting for this time of the year.


Since calendars are all about numbers, I used bingo makers as the center of the flowers.

Every page is marked Feb, but everyone of them has different distressed fonts.

I used Tim's new Rock Star stamp to double stamp the images, once in gold paint dauber and then in ink.

Rhinestone hearts mark the special day!

Love, Bliss, and Adore addage tickets add to the romantic feel.

All done and ready to ship....
