Picture This!

This week has been all about playing with my new toys that arrived from "It's Cheaper Than Therapy". 

The new Tim Holtz Line is so much fun and gets the imagination fired up.

I cut the Vintage Camera Die from Grunge Board and completely embossed the body of the camera with black UTEE.  The rest of the pieces were embossed with silver and placed back in the die cut, then glued leaving the center out.  I placed a piece of black cardstock over the back, glued it on the edges to make pocket for a photo. 
Next I placed a picture in the opening.  We took a trip to Paradise Cove last summer and had a wonderful time so that was the perfect photo.

In order to make it stand up I glued it to a tin that was painted black.  Arranging it so it would hinge forward from the bottom so it would open.  By drilling a hole in the side of the box I was able to make a strap from a piece of cord and ran it through the hole with a knot on the inside.

Since I was having so much fun I decided to keep going!  Next I cut a film strip using my Xyron cutter and glued some photos to the strip.  I attached one end of the film strip to the inside of the tin.  When the film strip is rolled up it fits nicely inside the tin when it is closed and pops out when you open it.

This was a fun project and I hope you had as much fun seeing it as I did making it.

Can You Hear Me Now?

Here are a few cards made with some new dies that arrived this week.  "Can you hear me now?" is made with the Vintage Telephone Die from Tim Holtz  and Sizzix.  These new ones are so much fun and I have been making lots of easle cards lately.


Here I used the Vintage Globe Die from Tim Holtz and Sizzix.  I cut the globe section 3 times seperating out the green and edging it before adding the final layer.

"You're Just My Type" made with the Vintage Typewriter from Tim Holtz & Sizzix

"#1 Fan" Who wouldn't want to get this card - a fun way to say Thank You!

"Fun Times!"  add your own photo to the Tick Tock Die.
I Have several more new dies to play with so got to run.  HOPE YOU LIKED THEM.
