Time Is A Companion

Good Morning, everyone! How was your weekend? Mine was busy, full of crafting and I actually managed to get all my Clarity samples finished in record time. Can't wait for you all to see them on the live shows in a couple of weeks time.

So today, I can start on my next magazine project and I can't believe that I'm already working on September. It's crazy when we haven't even had summer yet, that I'm already thinking of Autumn. And next month, dare I mention that word but it will be the start of *whispers*, Christmas...eek!!

But before we even begin to think of snow, holly leaves and Christmas trees, here's todays post and yup, it's all about Tim.
What I love about using Tim's products is that you can tell a story within your card and this one is all about time and travel. And don't they all work so well with the lovely designer papers from K&Company that I had in my crafty stash? Don't you just love the Weathered Clock die? I thought it was about time to break open the package and give it a spin through the Big Shot. And it works perfectly, teamed with my fave stamp, the Umbrella Man. Can you tell I'm excited? hehe

The flower is made with Grungepaper and inked with Distress Inks and that gorgeous pin is from The Ribbon Girl, which are fast becoming my new favourite crafty items. Aren't they just stunning?

So, I really hope you liked the card as much as I loved making it!
Have a very happy Monday and a wonderful week.
See you soon.
Love Emma

  10. I'm not 100% sure yet but I think you could be Tim Holtz number one fan! :-o He should dedicate a line of products to you! ;p

    but I can certainly understand the devotion to his products when they look like this! I adore the umbrella and the silhouette...very reminiscent of Charlie Chaplin...just passing the time..waiting for a bus, perhaps! it all works so well together!

    brilliant work as usual...and I'll chose to ignore the mention of THAT WORD so early in the year! in MAY, for goodness sake! ;p

  11. The weather's been more like Autumn today hasn't it. We've been almost blown away in these winds!!!
    Well done on geting ahead with your Clarity samples, can't wait to see them and this is jus stunnig. You've used my favourite stamp too. What is it about Mr Umbrella Man that is just so gorgeous. I love him to bits and he works so well with all the other things you've used. The clock die is great, may have to add that to my wish list.
    Like you say, Tim's products are brilliant for telling a story aren't they.
    Sounds like you had a very productive weekend.
    hugs Lisax
