Polymer Clay Projects Using Tim Holtz Ideology Scrapbooking Supplies

Tim Holtz Prize Package

Look at the Cool Craft Supplies Tim Holtz Sent To Me:

It sure has been fun to see what’s been coming in the mail over the last little while at my house. In fact it’s been a lot like Christmas all over again. Cool packages arriving on my doorstep filled with exciting polymer clay related goodies!

The other day I told you about a polymer clay heart I received from Susan who publishes an artistic blog that she has calls, “A-Walk-in The-Park.”

And today I would like to discuss the wonderful package I received from craft product designer and scrapbooking guru, Tim Holtz!

Now anyone who has ever done a paper craft should be aware of Tim Holtz. His edgy, masculine and distressed style of products, have brought a whole new look and feel to the scrapbooking industry.

Working with Ranger, Stampers Anonymous, Tonic Studios and others, he has developed the coolest lines of signature products and tools including his Idea-ology line.

I have admired Tim’s work for a long time. Being more of a “rustic” girl myself (definitely not a princess anyways), I love the tattered, time worn look of his art.

Tim’s ‘dream big’ teaching style is very positive, comfortable and relaxing. His blog has a whole bunch of very cool demo videos if you want to have a look.

Often Tim Holtz has giveaways for his products, which of course I try to win too. Finally my lucky day came. The photo above shows the contents of my prize package that just arrived. Thank you so much Tim!

This Idea-ology prize package included the following items:

  • A package of Journaling Tickets for jotting down something clever and adding to a project.
  • A package of filigree metal corners in three different colors for wrapping around covers, photos and whatnot. I’m going to incorporate these into some polymer clay pendants!
  • A pack of metal Numerals with brads. These are of course meant for adding to your scrapbooking pages. But wait till you see what I made with them! Photo and story to follow in tomorrow’s post.
  • And A box of Fragments – Circles and Ovals. These are clear acrylic disks for inking, stamping or gluing papers to. They are used for embellishments on cards, scrapbooks and altered art projects. I will of course come up with a cool way to incorporate these with my polymer clay stuff as well.

So stay tuned… more exciting pictures and ideas to come. Big shout out and thanks to you Tim Holtz!! I appreciate your gift and your many ideas, more than you know!

    I can’t wait to see how you incorporate these supplies into polymer clay. I also have lots of mixed media items that I need new ways to use. This could be another whole world for us. Thanks again for always sharing your ideas with us. You rock!

    Hi Cindy,

    Congratulations on winning such a prize!! Looking forward to tomorrow’s post. Have been interested in using alcohol inks with PC, so hope you plan a video in the near future. Visited Tim Holtz’ site and was impressed with his demos.

    Thanks MJ! I do plan on some alcohol ink videos in the future so watch for that.

    I know… Tim’s demos are great! He’s very personable, easy to learn from and has a cool style.

    Thanks Jamie! I’d love to think it was a little Karma that did it. I am thinking up other things to make with the prize. It’s kinda fun forcing yourself to think outside of the box. Good for the brain and all!

  7. Jamie, 28 March, 2009

    Is that why I cant find any corners in this round room? I been thinkin outside the box all this time and never knew! And people just said I was crazy! Hahahaha! One of these days I might try sneaking up on “normal” just to see what it looks like mwahahahaha! At least I keep my grandkids amused, LOL. XOXO Jamie
    P.S. I know you’ll make lotsa cool stuff with your goodies. And you’ll share them all with us. So in a way its kinda like we all won a prize too! SWEET! J
