I chose the background I made using Lost Shadow Distress Spray Stain and Distress Oxide Spray and decorated with Tim Holtz/Sizzix Tailored and Alphanumeric Bulletin Thinlits. I stamped the sentiment banner from Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Dapper inked with Lost Shadow Distress Ink randomly over the ..read more

Hi my friends, I'm sharing the coasters I made to match the clock for Tim Holtz/Sizzix YouTube Live launch of the Everyday 2023 release. If you missed the Live, you can check out all the products in the new release and all the amazing makes over on Tim's YouTube Channel or Blog. I trimmed Sizzix Mat Board to 3.1/2" square to make the base of the coasters, on hindsight it might have been easier to buy a set of cheap coasters and miss out this step. I also cut Sizzix Cork Texture Roll to the same size.  I fixed Tim Holtz/Sizzix Alphanumeric Bulletin letters and a cup from PaperCut Ca ..read more

Hi my friends, I'm sharing a card using Simon Says A-Glazing Day stamp set from the Hugs release, coloured with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers, the perfect card for all the donuts lovers out there, including me.

I stamped one of the donuts and a sentiment from the A-Glazing Day stamp set, inked with Vintage Photo on to an A2 panel of Strathmore Bristol Smooth card, which I believe is the card recommended for use with Zig Clean Color Brush Markers. I scribbled the Light Carmine Zig Clean Color Brush Mark ..read more
