This swap is all about Tim Holtz!

If you're not familiar with him, please take a peek at his website:

- US Participants – Please include a stamped, self addressed envelope with .65 cents postage and your AFA name on the back. If your cards are heavy or thick please include enough extra postage to cover.
- Please do not mail your cards ON the due date. Mail them early so they arrive by the due date.
- If you need to withdraw let me know. I will have a waiting list and someone may be willing to take your spot. I will leave neutral I-traders for those who do not communicate.
-A host card is not necessary to play.

Please PM me when/if you need my address.

Players - when you receive your cards for the swap, remember to leave iTrader for the Host (me) and Rep Points for the people you received cards from.

I was so intrigued and intimidated by Tim Holtz creations until I TOOK A CLASS he taught! Even my husband knows I like those products. Can you believe he actually said to me once: "Hey, I see Tim Holtz stuff is on sale this week. Do you want to go?"

Yes, please sign me up!!!

ICraft
03-10-2012, 03:10 AM
After looking through my Tim Holtz items & ideas I had to reread the swap instructions - so glad you said relatively flat and left the extra postage option if cards are a little bumpy - otherwise this would definitely be a challenge swap - Tim Holtz and flat - I don't know about that one. haha I think he's the king of dimensional items. This swap is going to be so much fun - just looking through some idea books I have has got me so excited - I don't know how I'll decide what to make. :wacko:

SarahRuth - awesome cards - they are classic Tim Holtz!!! I just love them!

Here are 3 of mine. They're pretty dark & the pics don't really do them justice. I used all kinds of TH stuff - stamps, papers, & die cuts, fasteners, crackle paint, plus acrylic paints, tape transfers, perfect pearls, etc. The perfect pearls doesn't photograph well.

Thanks louisezee & mariloupatch!

I've been doing pottery lately, so haven't done any ATC's for quite a while. I guess I've been feeling like, "Do I still have it?" :unsure:

I appreciate the positive responses! I feel much better now. :yes:

Lucky you!!! I'm sooooooooo wanting to go to one of Tim's workshops, but they never are close enough to me. I'm so glad he does all the tutorials on his blog & published his Compendiums. I just received my autographed copy of #2!


Please sign me up! I just saw Tim on Saturday here at the Rubber Stamp Convention in Carson, CA (I live in Los Angeles).

WHAT...a stamp convention???? Oh boy are you lucky girls. I have to order everything by internet shops, expensive, and one site has this brand, you have to find another for another brand you like... hopeless The few stamps they sell in the shops here are for
beginners (so to say)

We have a stamp show called Heirloom Stamp show, here in the Portland area, coming up next weekend! I can get a good deal for unmounted stamps! Which reminds me to start putting aside some $$ to spend! LOL! They also have an open ATC exchange and an ATC contest.

alanabannana
03-18-2012, 08:31 AM
that show comes here to Massachussets in June Melanie. I went a two years ago and was overwhelmed by the number of stamps, mounted and unmounted. It is worth checking out thier site for the listing of show locations. And bring your camera!! I did not last time and many people did and photo's were generally ok in most booths.

just updated the players list... 3 spots left, if i missed you please let me know.. thanks for bearing with me. my sister's death has been overwhelming, but I keep checking in on here. her wishes were to be cremated and scattered, hit a small hurdle as she and i no longer spoke to her father (he molested me when i was younger and pretty much forgot about my sister once she developed the sympots of ataxia) but since he is her legal next of kin i had to get in contact with him to give the ok and sign the paperwork, so that drained me.. plus i'm trying to coordinate a "celebration of life/memorial" in my house after some construction is finished and then coordinate the scattering ...thanks for putting up with me and sorry for venting. I received a couple envelopes, but I put them in a box for the moment so they dont get lost in my current confusion, but i'll post them as soon as i can.

Here are mine. Now I have to decide which ones to send in. Two of them are ATCs cut from tin. They look cool and thought that someone could incorporate them into other art...but wasnt sure if that was acceptable.

I used Ranger slick paper, alcohol inks, distress stain, archive ink, TH stamps, TH Stash images, distress rock candy crackle, glimmer mist, stickles, tin, and TM embossing folder.

My mixed media cards are finished and it was so much fun creating these :)! I watched one of Timīs videos about Distress Inks and Perfect Pearls and used that technique on all my cards. So except for the thread I used on machine stitching and the small piece of vellum on one of the cards, all materials are Tim Holtz: Distress Inks, Perfect Pearls and stamps. But these look better for real as the Pearls donīt scan very well...

I've done my cards! I used Tim Holtz distress inks then stamps on the backgrounds and then did my own thing. They're relatively straightforward because I'm just wrapping my head around ATCs again. It's been over 2 weeks of sick kids and sick me, and I'm just getting back to the art table. Really liking what I've seen so far!

@Shirley - Postal people can get real fussy about this stuff. Real fussy. I've actually switched post offices because my regular one was so moody and unpredictable.

Here are my cards. Can you believe it?!?...I had just enough of a strip of grungepaper to cut out 4 ATCs and have a little left over to experiment on first. A list of ingredients used is in my gallery.

I would love to play.
Just took an online class that Tim did called Creative Chemistry 101 that launched about 3 weeks ago. It is great!! There was one class everyday for 2 weeks!! What a work out. Some of the "ingredients" still aren't available but I put my order in so that if they become available before I send my cards I will try to use them in new ones. You can still take the class, here's the link. http://www.onlinecardclasses.com/timholtz/class-info/
Once you sign up and pay the $35 you can access the class indefinitely there is lifetime access. I've gone back several times since the class finished to make sure I understood the instructions. If you are a fan this is a wonderful class that will give you so much information about the products and the how and why they work the way they do. But understand that you may be tempted, as I was, to own it all!! :rolleyes:

ScrapPea
04-16-2012, 11:32 PM
@suezq45 - Thanks for that link. I've heard of people taking that class, so it's great to have a review from someone I know. $35 for a TH class is worth it! He came to Michigan 3 years ago to the MegaMeet scrapbook convention. His classes sold out in a record 13 minutes. I took the one class I really wanted--for $50--but I should have considered a 2nd class by him. I actually did not want to take the 3rd one. He was there doing demos all day, he posed for pics after class and he is so humble--almost embarrassed--that there is such an overwhelming love of his work.

If you see him demo'ing in person, just ask for the completed piece. he gives them away. I got 2 pieces made by him that way.

ICraft
04-17-2012, 04:29 PM
Wow suezq45 thanks so much for posting that class info - I'm going to pop right over and check it out!

ScrapPea - how awesome that you got the opportunity to take a Tim Holtz class in person - I've only seen him in videos online or TV appearances (some professionally done and others just taken by fans at different events where he was doing demos) - he seems just as you described so humble and gracious to all his "fans". I just love to watch him work - it's as if his creativity just flows so easily. I bet his class was phenomenal! You lucky girl!

Awesome cards! I was going to work on mine tonight instead of doing my taxes but then suezq45 got me so excited about the Tim Holtz class that I just HAD to go to Michaels and get the class supplies. Ugh! I already have everything except one item so I had no good excuse to go but......that's never stopped me before. They had so many awesome things on clearance and some other stuff I just "needed" and so in the 20 minutes I had to shop before they closed I managed to spend $140. Oh crud~I sure hope we're getting a refund on those taxes. See how much trouble Sue got me in? I already wrote her so she'd know I was blaming it all on her - I sure hope she takes it well. :spinny:

My cards arrived today as well (same time to London as to Minnesota!) - it's late now though and I'm tired, so iTrader and rep points are just going to have to wait until tomorrow...
