All Things Tim Post Card Swap

I recently joined a the All Things Tim Yahoo Group for people who love to create with Tim Holtz products. They're a really fun and nice group of people and it's a very active group. They have several swaps going on at all times, a monthly challenge and tons of info and encouragement on their message board.

For example, I found out from the list that this coming Friday, February 10 at 10:00am Tuesday Morning Stores will be having a huge sale of scrapbooking supplies including Martha Stewart, K & Company and Tim Holtz. They say they will have configurations boxes and I hope to get some of those at good prices that I can decorate for Christmas gifts. Luckily for me, my mom is retired and loves to shop so she has that on her calendar for Friday morning - I can't get there until 4pm!!

Anyway, I'm participating in the current All Things Tim 6x6 "Use Your Stash" Postcard swap. I need to use up my stash and making 6 postcards looked like a fun way to start. The postcards are 4x6 and can be decorated anyway, in the Tim Holtz style of course, and on the back side you're supposed to write something about yourself. Here are my 6 postcards. I had a great time making them. I used Grunge paper with various distress inks and stains and Tim Holtz, Stamps, Grunge Blocks letters and Ranger Glossy Accents. I can't wait to see what I receive when I get my 6 in March!! I'll be sure to post them here.

  4. Ooooh, love Tim Holtz products and these are awesome! I bought some Grunge Paper die cut numbers at Tuesday Morning about 2 years ago and still need to break open the package and use them! You've inspired me to do just that!
    Love the Glossy Accents effect on the letters!

  5. Fabulous 'grungy' collection Donna! Love those glossy letters!

  6. Love your postcards and love Tim Holtz! I have a pretty good start on my TH collections, but you can never have tooooo much!! Love the Glossy Accents, really add dimension and looks great! Wow, that group sounds like fun... any openings?
