Hello, crafty friends! Thanks so much for stopping by, and welcome to the Tim Holtz Creativation 2019 Blog Hop! Today I am joining in with a group of very talented designers to share a closer look at some of the booth projects that were showcased at Creativation in January featuring all the fabulous new products from the Tim Holtz collection.
I had the great pleasure of creating a few projects for the Tim Holtz Sizzix booth, and today I am excited to share my favorites from the show… a set of travel notebook journals made with the new Tiny Travel Globe die set from the upcoming Chapter 2 Sizzix release.
The Tiny Travel Globes are a continuation of the ever popular miniature snowglobe set that Tim released for the holidays this past year, and yes, these images are truly tiny and amazingly detailed. Each icon measures from about .5″ to 1″ in height, and all the little layered details you see here are individual die cuts. But never fear… all the pieces for each image come together on one die for super easy assembly.
There are the most adorable dimensional plastic domes that work with this set to create very lifelike 3D snow globe designs, but I wanted to show how these die cuts could be used in other ways. Each journal I created combines three or more images from the set into little framed travel scenes, perfect for documenting your favorite vacation sights and memories.
These travel notebooks measure about 3.5 “x 5.5”, and come in a pack of six from Amazon, making them super convenient and inexpensive to create in bulk. To add that aged and distressed appearance we all love so well, I started by adding some Distress ink splatters and Ranger black embossing powder to the edges of the journal before going over the cover with sand paper to scuff it up a bit. Next comes a layer of heavyweight cardstock, splattered and stamped in a really cool chevron-style print from the Flurry & Pine (CMS312) stamp set from Stamper’s Anonymous. I changed up the colors of each of the background to add a bit of variety to the set. Love the sort of primary-school color palette I used of red, yellow, green, and blue Distress ink. The backgrounds were then embellished with big chat stickers, and “held” in place with Idea-ology design tape.
The black frames were made by nesting a Stitched Ovals die in the center of a Stitched Rectangle die. I used the Tonic Studios paper distresser tool up scratch up the edges of the frame, and then added a bit of Hickory Smoke Distress Oxide ink with an ink blending tool. If you look very closely, you may notice some faint images that look like postage marks (Haberdashery CMS105) that I stamped randomly around the frames in Black Soot ink. And for more texture, black embossing powder was dry sprinkled onto the frames and very carefully heat set from the back with my heat tool.
The images for each vignette were all die cut and pieced from sanded Distress Kraft Stock cardstock, and I used additional pieces of the same cardstocks to help build the rest of the scenes. To keep the set uniform, I created sunny blue skies for each setting using Tumbled Glass and Salty Ocean Distress inks on watercolor paper, and then layered on the additional detail pieces. Once you get started, it’s really fun to see where your imagination goes.
Each journal is tied closed with twine and fastened in a bow with a Idea-ology Typed Token. To make the tokens look as old as the rest of the journal, I dabbed them with Alcohol inks in Caramel and Rust. White Distress Crayon rubbed into the recesses really helps the lettering stand out. Last detail on each notebook is a destination sentiment strip die cut using the new Alphanumeric Label dies that are also coming out in the upcoming Chapter 2 release.
Thanks so much for stopping by, and enjoy the rest of the hop! But before you go, be sure to leave a comment here, and all along the hop, for your chance to win one of three amazing prize giveaways.

Tracey from Australia
I love these small journals and what you have done with them. Distressed but not too messy. Just my style. I love the label dies. I will need to find out where I can get those from on line as I am in New Zealand.
I’m ready to begin my passport journey. These are great.
These are so cute! I love the Sedona one!
Love the mini Vignettes.
Love these dies! Would love to try them! Lovely use of the dies on the journals!
Amazing journals! I admired these already when I watched Tim’s video of the booth ❤
What a great idea to do a series.
Now that is a great idea…..
Everthing looks so great, I love it.
They are beautiful!
What simply adorable & sweet journals! Love the usage of black. Very unique!
I absolutely love your style Audrey. Thanks for the inspiration!
I love little things and I love your use of these new dies. Tedious work but so worth it! Simply gorgeous work. TFS
Those are all beautiful!
Wow pretty amazing. I like the small size.
A really interesting technique you used – heating the back where you placed embossing powder. I love journals and I’ve been learning so much about making them lately, super excited for the next release in April!! Thank you for sharing 🤗
These travel journals are SO beautiful!
You have made these a “must have”!! Can’t wait….
Your creations are truely HANDSOME!
You did an amazing job!!!
Thank you for sharing how you gave the black frames some distressing and texture.😊 Black cardstock always looks too “clean”😊 to go with the distressed or vintage look!! Thank you.
So fun!!! I’m definitely going to have to pick these dies up!!!
Wow wow wow!!!! Fabulous projects! these dies are absolutely stunning and your work amazing! Thanks for sharing your inspirations and thanks for the chance to win! Barbara
I love how you used the Tiny Travel Globe dies to create your journals Audrey, really loving the Europe/London bus one and the San Francisco bridge is so striking!
Makes me want to travel, but until then just be inspired to make some art!
I love how you assembled these scenes, so picturesque! I just adore these, 🙂
These were too stinking cute and oh so fun! I loved the vividness of each little scene!
Oh, Audrey, you made my day! I love the “snow globe” effect. And I love tiny having been a miniaturist in a former life. And, that NY scene is spot on having been a lifetime New Yorker born and raised. So these dies are definitely up my alley. TU for sharing your talent with us again.
Your little journals are fabulous. Such details just amazing. Very clever idea of a unique way to use the dies in a different way. Thank you so much for sharing your art.🐧
Wow Audrey these are just fantastic! I cannot wait to get the travel dies to make journals and cards for all my traveling friends! Gorgeous work my friend!
Fantastic project, so cute in tiny size. Just love so many of those dies. Thank you for highlighting these.
Audrey — your attention to detail and ability to re-imagine the dies is wonderful. Good work
These are so cute! I can imagine the lot of work with those mini details, so worth the effort!
Great idea, I hope to lift it for wedding mini albums as presents for families 😁
Your teeny tiny travel cards are so adorable. I can imagine it takes some patience to create all those little scenes, but it’s so worth it!
These are brilliant!
We have friends in the USA who frequently go to Sedona……..just had to show hubby your set.
Love this idea for a journey keepsake. Would make a fantastic gift too!
You are such an inspiration for so many of us. Thank you for sharing your process
Cute! What a fun idea
Oh, my goodness!! The travel journals are fabulous! Wonderful details with all the dies for the perfect scenery! So super cute…love them all!!
Gorgeous scenic cards and of course being from the UK I adore the red bus and black taxi. Clever designs. Tracy ❤️
Great little project, so interesting with the travel theme!! Really like this and enjoyed reading how you made them . Very cleaver way to make journals !

Oh my, these Tiny Travel Globe Dies are a must!!!
Love your creations.
I am in awe eith those tiny details, and these little notebooks are absolutely clever and fantastic! Hugs. Simo
These are soooo cute! And I love the treatment of the black frames… is that just cardstock? The treatment definitely gives it a leather feel. So great!
Hi Gina, yes, that is just black cardstock. But it gets that time-worn leather look when you add a bit of embossing powder on top, and then take a sander to the whole thing. 😀
That is so awesome! Thanks so much for the added detail and response!
Thank you Audrey! These are the cutest little travel journals ever. Everyone loved these at Creativations! They are perfect for your next adventure!
So super cute! It makes me want to travel again!
Audrey, the journals are even more fabulous up close then they were at the show, just fabulous! I applaud you patience in constructing the journals with all the uber tiny pieces. Thanks for the attention to detail and a different “take” on the travel globe set!

How clever to use these sweet little die cuts on travel journals! You have rocked the details for each city and on all of your layers. I love the weathered look you have given the covers. Well done!
This is a great way to show off all the samples made for the show. It also makes my wish list much bigger than it was before.

How in the world did “Pork Chop” fingers design this? LOL I love that Tim always comments about his “pork chops” cause I have big hands (for a woman). These are cute, even for those of us with “man hands”.
