Hello all and welcome! I am back today to share a little glimpse at some of the makes that I created for the new Tim Holtz Sizzix Halloween and Fall release. Did you happen to see Tim’s Youtube Live featuring them? Well…if you didn’t you should definitely go over to his Youtube channel and check it out!
Tim has done it again!! You know that those words come out of my mouth very frequently… but after you watch, I think you will agree!
And don’t even get me started on all the AMAZING inspiration provided by all the makers.. it is, and will always be, a treat to be able to create right along side all of these amazing and wonderful makers.
Unfortunately, my makes didn’t quite make it to Arizona for the Live (and are most likely lost in a Fedex warehouse somewhere never be found.. 🙁 ) so, to say that I was bummed is a complete understatement.
But, with every cloud, there is a silver lining, right? ..and especially when you make for Tim, he will always find a way to turn that frown upside down and make it good. How could you expect anything less? Tim found a way for my extra makes to get there in time so that I could still be a part of the Live, and Mario made sure that my package kept moving in the right direction. I am forever grateful to them both for what they do! There are no bigger hearts in this creative community.
So, what did I make and what awesome products did I use? Here’s a peek at the projects I’ll be sharing very soon.. so keep an eye out!
I can’t wait to share all the spooky details.
The projects that Tim shared on the Live were projects that I made for the Joann Fabrics inspiration series over on Joann.com.
Did you know that they have FREE tutorials over on their blog?? This is something new to me and I was super excited when Tim asked me if I would like to create for them.
In fact, this tutorial, featuring The Halloween Vault Series, is over on their website now!!
Also, speaking of Joann projects…
this project, featuring The Count, will be over on their inspiration page next month. Here he is featured with the Spiderweb thinlet used both as an embellishment and as a mask to create the background.
My next projects are those that were lost on their journey.
This project features The Count and the new Candlelight Colorize Thinlet Sets. I combined it with an idea-ology Shrine and Etcetera Cathedral Window to create a light up scene by also featuring idea-ology tiny lights. Cue the moody Halloween organ prelude. I can just hear it, can you?
The Count is Mr. At-ti-TUDE!! That stink eye is EPIC!
My next project was my personal favorite of all my makes of this release, probably because it tells a more haunting story, in a very vintage and creepy way. I used the new Foliage 3D Texture Folder to create a background and accented with the new Leaf Fragments. These leaves have a fabulous eerie look to them so they are perfect for Halloween and for all your distressed fall makes. I went all out with going full on layer upon layer, and can’t wait to share how I achieved it.
See those layers? It just makes me giddy…I love it!
Last, but not least, I made a tiny Nevermore themed matchbox book featuring the Halloween Vault Thinlet set and the Matchbox Bigz die that was released in Chapter 2. There is nothing like a little Poe inspiration at Halloween… can you tell layers were my theme this season? I will have a tutorial sharing how I made the matchbox look like a book featuring a crumpled edge with book pages featured on three sides of the box.
So…I hope that you’ll stop back again when I share the details of these projects. Below I have included a list of a majority of the supplies that I used to create these makes and the links to the other new Sizzix sets.
Thanks so much for stopping by today and as always, for supporting me, my creativity and all things Tim Holtz and vintage.
See you soon!
