Time 2 Create - New CHA Releases!

Hi all! With CHA officially underway, I can finally start sharing the projects I created using Tim Holtz's new products from idea-ology, Sizzix, Stampers Anonymous, and Ranger! As always, I ran out of time before I ran out of ideas, but I did get a few good pieces made that I really love.

This little storage cart using Tim's new Matchbox die from Sizzix just might be my favorite project of all time! I knew when I first saw the die that I would make something like this. After I put the boxes together, they seemed so small, so I just started building and building!

In addition to the cool matchbox die, I love all of the new idea-ology bits and pieces! Here, I've used the Number Brads (they make great drawer pulls!), the Alpha Chips, and one of the arrows from the new Framed Alpha Parts. I also used the new Boardwalk alpha die to spell out 'time'. Oh, and that clock face that fits perfectly into the Pocket Watch die? It's included in the new Thrift Shop Ephemera pack. I was so tickled to discover that! The top is tied with a piece of Tim's new Jute String, which might be my favorite product this time around. Ah, who am I kidding? They are ALL my fave! ;-)

Speaking of time and creativity...I had a really nice surprise last month when I found out (thanks, Gloria!) the Assemblage Clock that I made for last year's CHA was featured in an idea-ology ad on the back of the latest issue of The Stampers' Sampler. How cool is that?! Some of you may not know that Stampers' Sampler was the first magazine I was ever published in - so it was a very special thing to have somewhat come full circle with my art. I still remember nervously submitting that first project too! It was a 'Tempting Template' challenge and I made an Indian-themed cup filled with Chai mix and cinnamon sticks. That was 10 years ago. Time flies!

Stay tuned as I'll be sharing more of the projects I created in the next few days. Inspiration Emporium will have all the new products available to preorder very soon. As soon as they are listed, I'll add them to the thumbnail links!
