Here is the link I posted about in the previous post ... Tim Holtz - Idea ology Collection Folios

Okay ... as promised ... a second update !!

I have just finished unpacking 2 boxes of glorious "stuff " !! Have to share !!

* New Dies from Tonic ... lovely detail. Look at the orange image on the package to see what the cut design will look like.

* New TIM HOLTZ IDEOLOGY !!!!! (so excited !!)
I think this is my favourite !!
"Found Relatives"
Have you ever wanted to do a vintage style collage or other project featuring ancestral images
but you don't have any old photos ? You do now !!
Instant ancestors - 24 of them per package !
Oh, I am going to invent such a family tree ... lol. 
Even the backs are pretty . They look like old playing cards and would also make great elements in a project.

Alpha Chips (192 pcs), Clipboard Clips, and new Index labels. 

Collection Folio (large).
This is a very interesting product .
Tim Holtz posted some great photos on his blog of the project Paula Cheney made using one of the folders.
I have tried to post a link with no success ... hmmm ...

These heart charms have so much potential !
You get 12 charms ( that's less than $1 each) as well as photos/images to put in them
and the clear epoxy covers to finish them .
BUT !!! You could use your OWN photos ... ahhhh !!

Elastic bands & loops as well as mini corners. 

Industrious Stickers - perfect as is or colour them with inks or paints !!
They look like real metal trim !

Mini Cabinet Cards ... put your new relatives in them !! 

Ephemera packs - you know they are going to be good if they come from Tim Holtz !!

* New SIZZIX !!!! (and Tim Holtz ... )
Love these dies !
Especially the Trellis and Honeycomb. Oh my !

Look at this Match Box !!!!

Texture Fades (embossing folders)
"Courtyard" and "Trellis"

Alphabet Dies ... Wanted & Inside Out.

These are gorgeous !
Tattered Flowers and Spring Greenery.
I bet you will use the greenery die over and over ... and over .. 

Be still me heart ... oh my, the Butterflies !!!!!!
And the bows are cute too. I'm just overwhelmed by the butterflies. 
* New Stamps ...
New Graphic 45 stamps to go with their new paper line "By the Sea"...
oh, did I mention that the paper will be shipping in the next week or so ? 

And another great set from hero Arts. So pretty !

* Tim Holtz paper ... oh my gosh, I forgot to show this !!
8x8 Paper Mini Stash "Menagerie"

12x12 Resist Paper Stash
This pad is all either white or kraft paper with a clear resist design on each page. 

Here's a close up of one of the designs. 

The back of the pad shows all the various designs.
BUT ...  the black ink in the designs is actually just for demonstration purposes
- the designs are clear on kraft or white. 

12x12 Paper Stash "Wallpaper " ... exquisite.
Scroll down for a few peeks ...

Well that's it for tonight. Please stop in on Friday & see all the great new products for yourself.
And there is more to come in the next few weeks !!

A Kit and a Few New Items ... hopefully more to come too !

Hi !
Here is this week's card kit . I have always loved Graphic 45's French Country paper so I decided to use that this week. It is rich & luscious. So much so that I didn't want to add a lot of "stuff". I wanted the gorgeous papers to be the stars. So these cards are very simple & elegant. Hope you like them ! Get all the materials for all 3 cards for just $5.

Now for a few new items. I am expecting some boxes this afternoon so I may be back with another update this week.
* New stamps ...
Cute little stamp set from Bo Bunny for calendar reminders but I think they would be great
 for little tags on layouts & cards.

Invitation set & a wonderful set of numbers ! 

Music !!!

A great set of words & phrases to stamp or stamp & cut out.
Perfect on cards, layouts, collages, etc.  

And this one I must have missed putting it out earlier.
Just a cute little set ! 

Some old favourites are back !
Wedding & cards. 

And this is new from Stampendous .. it is gorgeous !
And sadly, I could only get one. Hurry !!
* Maya Road ...
Paperclips !!
A great addition to a min album or cards.

Feathers are everywhere right now !
These are scrapbooking embellishments but I think
they would be fantastic on a long necklace. 

Show everyone a great idea ... Add a light bulb on a photo or a card .
Clear with black or white or wooden.

Wooden hearts or an assorted pack of hearts & wings. 
* a few more odds'n'ends ...
Anniversary stickers.

Fun little bags from Fancy Pants .
Add them to a page for journaling cards or on a card with a stamped tag.
Or fill them with treats !!

Also from Fancy pants, great photo frames.
Use on a layout or add a photo to a card.
OR .. use them as a fancy frame for a stamped sentiment.
Well, I am off to drag in a few boxes that the courier just delivered. Right in time !! Watch for another update this week.
