If Tim Holtz Was A Girl...



I'm convinced this little sweetheart is a good representation of the first blueprint image that would have graced his blueprint line if Mr. Holtz was born a girl.  Why?  Cuz Girls Rule!!!!  And a little girl drafted of sugar, spice and everything nice is just cute, fun and incredibly ADORABLE!!!


Obviously this image was inspired by the Tim Holtz blueprint stamp line, but actually features CC Designs' Cupcake Kiki that I stamped on black cardstock using my Stampin Up Craft pad and then altered using an opaque white gel pen.  Please ignore the shadow in the bottom right corner... I couldn't seem to get my big head out of the way....

I had a ton of fun making this one and am feeling pretty great about the crafty life force that has found its way back into my bloodstream.  I'm vowing NEVER to pack up my craft space EVER.... EVER again!!!  I definitely have a new-found appreciation for my perfectly placed chaos that is near impossible to replicate!!!  I'm off now to figure out a storage solution for my Spellbinders....any ideas?  Please chime in!!!

adorbs!
you know my fav storage solution for my SB. :) PSB's with the quarter pages. Also have some of the long border, wide border and a few of the pages with multiple smaller pockets. I get so many in a small space and totally portable. Miss you!

Ack! Adorable! I LOVE how you altered the image with the gel pen! Brilliant! Glad to see you making awesome stuff again!
I use magnetic knife holders from Ikea to store my dies. It works great if you have the wall space for them. I'm pretty visual, so out of sight, out of mind. I use the ones that are out, and then rotate them periodically to remind myself to use a new (or old) die.

Fantastic!!!! I love, love, love all your yummy layers of paper. The image is adorable and love the white stamped on black card stock. She really pops in white. And yes, you should be a Tim Girl. I think I have most of the blue prints. Other than the sewing one since I can't sew. Join me on the dark side;p. Thank you for swing by my blog and sharing your thoughts. You crack me up!

I don't use spell binders so I don't have any storage solutions for you. I suck:/
