Tim Holtz at CHA

Back from CHA......

I have a tag to share that I made at a Make & Take in the Avantus booth. Advantus distributes Tim's Idealogy line of fun stuff. The metal flower is one of the new releases. The tag itself is made of grungeboard but the strap is made from at CHA. It's much thinner than the original grungeboard. It should be thin enough to cut with Spellbinders or QuicKutz dies.
The "J" is from one of Tim's new cling stamp sets. The design under the J was created with a new mask. The color on the tag was done with a paint dabber over the mask. Then Distress Brushed Corduroy was rubbed into the area after the mask was removed.

Tim taught this Make & Take at the Ranger booth one afternoon while I was there. I waited about 40 minutes to get my turn. Here's a few candid shots I took while in line.......

...a bit out of focus but this photo shows Tim with the pin in his hand

....patience as everyone works on their pins

.....a bit of emotion

......a point made finished pin

The pin is created with one of Ranger's 2x2 Memory frames with glass in the back. The front domed cover is a new acrylic topper that leaves space for dimensional items. I certainly thought it was worth the wait.....what do you think?
