CHA 2015- Friends Forever with Tim Holtz

It was definitely one of the top highlights of my year, when out of the blue, I got an email from the ever-so talented Paula Cheney asking if I’d like to make samples for Tim Holtz using his new collection of Alterations dies for the 2015 CHA Mega Show. Seriously like the best birthday present ever.

Of course I tried to play it cool.Β  But my fingers were fumbling to hit that reply button as.soon.as.humanly.possible.oh.my.gosh…

Working with Paula and Tim over the past couple of months has been an amazing experience, and of course I am crazy in love with Tim’s new release. If you’ve been following along, you may recognize some of his new goodies here. This card has new Sizzix Alterations dies, along with new Idea-ology and new surfaces. Phew…. so much goodness!

Are you loving these adorable coffee cups? These are from the new Fresh Brewed Sizzix Bigz Die. And since they are a Bigz die, that means they can be die cut from a wide variety of surfaces, including Tim’s new Corrugated paper seen here. Be still my heart!

Other new surfaces for Tim this year are cork paper and deco paper, both seen here on the center of the cups on those fun die cut hearts. The hearts are from the new Heartfelt Bigz Die, and with 11 different sizes and shapes to choose from on this die, I know it will quickly become a favorite. And cork paper? Silver and gold deco paper? Sigh……

There are just so many fun new goodies to look at here. See the metal pin on the bow? That is one of the new Idea-ology Loop Pins. A safety pin at one end, and a loop at the other, eliminating the need to use a jump ring when attaching other tokens or charms. And the lovely hand-scripted sentiment… don’tcha love that? That is from the new Handwritten Love Thinlits set. 7 beautiful sentiment word dies done up in Tim’s own handwriting.

All the dies seen here will be available on Sizzix.com or from your local retailer by February. Here’s a quick link to some of the products. Thanks so much for stopping by. Wishing you all a wonderful day!
