The Tim Holtz 12 Tags

of Christmas will be starting tonight
and of course just like the last two years we will be replicating them for you.
We will take it from lots of steps and techniques down to just a few to make it easy for you.

All the pieces will be in baskets, so when you get a few spare minutes you can pop by and make them.

Tim Holtz made this video to show a preview.

Enjoy the video and we will post our first tag tomorrow.

Tim Holtz Holiday Wishes Class

Did you see this book on the Tim Holtz blog?
or even in person at Everything Scrapbook & Stamps?

Were you fortunate enough to get one from his Etsy store when he was selling them?

If not you can still get lucky

Everything Scrapbook & Stamps is offering this class on Saturday December 3rd at 11:00am

Michelle recently took this class from Tim Holtz himself when she was in Houston and she is teaching it here.

It is of course nowhere near as exciting as having Tim teach it but she can be pretty funny!

Call and get into this exciting class and get grungy for the Holidays.

Sew Ribbon from We R Memory Keepers

We R Memory Keepers Sew Ribbon takes the concept of stitching thread to now threading ribbon! Like the Sew Easy which allows users to create beautiful stitched patterns on all types of projects, crafters can now make beautiful designs with their ribbon! Crafters have been using ribbon for years to embellish their projects, and now they can not only easily apply the ribbon to the project, but instead of doing simple lines and bows, they can make interesting designs like: weave, flowers, scallop, leaf, shoelace and zig zag. The new product line by We R Memory Keepers also includes 10 ribbon packs in various colors and textures,Align Center and extra “needles.”

We will be doing a Make n Take with this tool sometime in the next couple of weeks. We will let you know when we have it on the schedule.
