Tim Holtz Configuration Box

I have had some fun creating using the new Tim Holtz smaller configurations box from Scottie Crafts today and at midnight last night when I gave up on sleeping because my mind was buzzing with ideas!

The box ($24.99) before its transformation is available from Scottie Crafts along with a larger box ($34.99). Other Products I have used from Scotties are the mini roses, Tim Holtz dies, tissue tape, ink embellishments and Foundation Feet, Pink Paislee and Graphic 45 stickers, Stamp effects metallic rubs, Vinjag embellishments. Other products used are shrink plastic, beads, dusty attic fence and "found" objects from op shops.

Wendy showed me a very cool technique using shrink plastic - use it on Tim Holtz dies so you can get mini diecuts.  Wendy created the birdcage, door latch, key and keyhole and I had a go with the heart wings die and made a bit of a warped arty heart! Before you heat the die emboss it with the cuttlebug and Wendy has used a beige brilliance ink on it very cool. With my heart I embossed it then put an red embossing powder on it before heating it - I think I need to bring some Shrink Plastic home its so cool!
I sent an image of the box I created to Tim Holtz and got a reply back from him saying -"Wonderful - Thank you" - which was cool too!

Enough of my rambling here is the box

Dont forget my RAK from this post - you could win this if you are a follower on my blog by midnight tomorrow
