'Twas the Night Before Christmas...A STAMP SET A DAY GIVEAWAY!!

'Twas the Night Before Christmas and all over the World,
Every Crafter was stirring, their minds were a blur,
Their eyes were wide with wonder, their excitement was grand,
To see the stunning creations, of one talented young man...

I know you are all awaiting the arrival of a special man very soon. He is very creative, he is magical, he is always full of surprises, he looks great in a red suit (I'm assuming:), and the day is almost here!

Santa Claus, you say? Well he is pretty awesome, too! But we are talking about the day that Tim Holtz arrives at CHA in California! Have you seen Tim's Blog? Check it out HERE! Tim has been teasing every artist in the world with his sneak peeks of his 12 New Distress Ink Colors and his Alterations Line by Sizzix that will be released at CHA in January 2010. Cross my fingers....I hope we get to see a little Idea-ology too!

Here's a special peek at the 12 New Distress Ink Pads by Tim Holtz! This is Tim's personal collection (it was the sweetest thing in the world that he sent us this picture to use!). The new colors are awesome, and the names are so descriptive. I am really looking forward to getting all of them myself!

To celebrate this upcoming release, we are giving away One Retro Holiday Unmounted Set EVERY DAY from Christmas to New Year's Day! That's one on December 25th, December 26th, December 27th, December 28th, December 29th, December 30th, December 31st, and January 1st of 2010! Whew....that's a lot! Who wants one?

    I don't have much in the way of Tim Holtz products (love his style, but it's not usually mine) so I substituted what I had & used a cracked glass technique instead of the crackle paint.

  13. Oh my gosh.....
    I think you love Tim and his products as much as I do.
    I NEED to get those new colors, sadly... it will take a while before they will be available in the Netherlands.
