CHA spotlight: Sizzix

I’ve covered some of the Sizzix booth in my Tim Holtz and Brenda Walton posts already, but there is so much more! Take a look at more of the amazing product coming in 2013…


Yes, I have a big shot and NO, nothing is wrong with it… but look at this beauty! I want one! Speaking of want – I wish I could just buy this Vintaj jewelry ready to go – but it is super cool that there are all kinds of embossing plates and things to make your own! The new designs are listed as an approximate April ship date.

CHA spotlight: Brenda Walton for Sizzix

Brenda Walton has been designing beautiful paper crafting lines for quite a while with K&Co, and now she has expanded into die cuts with Sizzix – a partnership I am very excited about! I was surprised (and totally delighted!) to come around the corner and find Brenda herself in the booth (she’s on the right) – and what a display she had set up! I wanted to pour a cup of tea, have some cucumber sandwiches and scones, and just move in.

Brenda herself was so kind and wonderful to speak with – and I can hardly wait for April to come around because that is when her line “favorite things” is estimated to ship to retailers. Truly the photos will speak for themselves –

Halloween Card {and give-away}

If you think that so far I’m having a good time being on the Tim Holtz design team, you’d be right.

Tim Holtz product used: texture fade, spiced marmalade, pumice stone, and walnut stickles, peeled paint and dusty concord distress ink, metal clip

other: Jenni Bowlin vintage Halloween kit goodies, Martha Stewart candy sticker, cardstock, PPA by USArtQuest (adhesive), ribbon

I made another of my ‘glue faux fruit rolls’ and attached to the front of a folded piece of cardstock to make a card. Then I inked, stickled, and otherwise decorated. SO easy!!

What could be more fun than getting a bit of crazy Halloween goodness in the mail? How about getting a texture fade of your own?

Tim sent me these last week, and he said I could share them with my lovely blog readers. I already have (and LOVE and USE) these texture fades and I can tell you they’re LOADS of fun!! Would you like to get one of these in the mail? Leave a comment here and I’ll pick two winners (and send them each one of the texture fade sets shown above) in a few days. Share your favorite October treat in a comment here, and maybe I’ll treat you!! Good luck.
