Tim Holtz Tutorial Update & Happy Mail!

Hello everyone,

I hope you are all having a great weekend. Personally I have found a lousy sore throat and cold somewhere and it has kept me in bed all day.
However when I just checked my blog I was amazed at the over whelming number of people interested in this little rosette.  I just made another one and it took me about 3-4 minutes just so you have an idea how long it takes.  This time I cut the paper with a scalloped edge before I cut the strip size I wanted to use.  I also went down a little in size to 1″.  I will put the pictures here in the order of how I made the Tim Holtz type Rosette.  Also, I used light weight paper because I was just trying this out and Tim I believe uses 80lb paper for this.Since I have already listed the supplies and steps in the post before this one I thought this picture would be enough.  As you can see I held the Rosette closer together in the middle this timeAfter I finished this one I decided to dress it up a bit so I found a clear button to fit the center.  I then colored the button with my copic C35 and tied a piece of crochet thread in the middle of it.As you can see it definitely finishes it off…I love it.  The finished size of this is 2 1/2″ and I’m sure you can make it any size you want.  In Tim’s video he shows where he has cut some of these in half to make a bunting like you would see for the 4th of July.  You just have to make sure the cut side is covered with chipboard to prevent it from coming apart.

Now on to my happy mail!!!  Today I received a package from none other than Jacque.  If you have not seen her work you are missing some of the most beautiful work out there.
I was lucky enough to need a baby girl card when she was offering one….oooh it’s going to hurt to give this up.Even the inside of her cards are a work of art!!!This came in a plastic box that is just perfect for giving to the lucky mommy.Not only did she send me the card though, as if that’s not enough right…..she also sent me some Wild Orchid Crafts flowers which is totally awesome because I have never used any before.  Of course I am off to make her a thank you card…but I’m scared to death…my cards look like a 5th grader’s compared to hers.

Thank you Jacque, and thank you to everyone that takes the time to look here.  Please let me know what you think of my tutorial…don’t you just love it with the button.

That’s all for now.  Time to go rest and take care of this yucky cold.

Hugz,
Cheri
