About Me

Hi, Welcome to my Blog. I'm a lapsed crafter of late but still managing my diary Scrapbooking, plus cards as required. Previously I've also dabbled in ATCs, Tags, Altered Books, Art Journaling, Décopatch, Knitting, Crochet, and Embroidery amongst other things. I live in Surrey, UK with my husband and son. For exercise I usually play Badminton and go Ballroom and Latin Dancing, not really got back to the latter since the pandemic. I like walking which I couple with Geocaching and sometimes Bouncing on my Rebounder (mini trampoline). I am a Christian.

Tim Holtz Mini Book




Was determined to make a Tim Holtz Mini Book so last night I did just that. I used a 12x12 sheet from his Lost & Found Stash and his Symphony tissue tape. The buttons, feather and corners I already had in my stash and the gear diecut is from a Tim Holtz Sizzix Bigz Die.


I really enjoyed making this little book and now need to fill it with something!


Used one of the alcohol inked ATCs I made to decorate the first page. I even alcohol inked the two silver sequins I used in the corners. Hazelnut ink comes up a treat, looks just like copper. I attached one of the Tim Holtz spinners too.


The tag was from another ATC I'd made during my 2nd session with my new alcohol inks.



Just made a chain closure for my little book, using a Tim Holtz chain looped around a button. Had to move the other two buttons to make it work! The little charms metal are from a local shop.


I attached the chain with a jump ring and a brad through the back cover. Works just dandy.


Here's a few more pages:-
Various Tim Holtz techniques on his tattered floral dies.


Life like Orange-Tip butterfly with Tim's mini butterfly die and distress inks.


Thought the man with umbrella stamp would finish off the back page well.


Hope you like.
