Idea-ology Project #1

Hi everyone! I'm posting from CHA today - so excited to be here! I'll be keeping this brief, but I did want to give you a peek at one of the projects I made for Tim Holtz using the new Idea-ology findings and papers.

The new Idea-ology Pulley Wheels are probably my favorite thing of all - my piece is basically built just to show them off! I also love the Mini Gears and Box Corners. So cool!

Here, I used a Wire Pin to hold a Mini Numeral and a Vial that I attached using a Screw Eye. A Clock Key sits atop a little clock I made using a toilet paper tube (more about that later!), some leftover packaging, and a clock image from the new papers.

All the little houses were cut from heavy mat board using the Sizzix Artful Dwellings die. I added a little door to this one - one of the new Faucet Knobs is perfect as a handle!


One of my favorite new products is the Word Bands. Love this sentiment!

Ok, must run now - CHA is open in 10 minutes! I'll try to share pictures when I can. If you want to follow my Twitter feed, the link is near the top on my sidebar. Hope you enjoyed this first project!

  51. Shelly... There is not a word that someone has not already used to describe your newest creation or new way for me to praise you! This is awesome. But even more than all that, it LOOKS like you had FUN designing and making it! Isn't that what this is all about? And we had fun studying it. Thanks for sharing. I am sure you surpassed Tim's expectations too .
