♥ Simon Says... Father's Day {with Tim Holtz!!} ♥

This week's challenge over at the Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog is to make a Father's Day or Male card and/or project. And the DT got to play with Tim Holtz products! Love Tim! Who doesn't?!


I decided to make a Tim Holtz Idea-ology Configuration Shadow box. Been wanting to make one of these for awhile now and thought this would be the prefect time to do it! So I made a little present for my hubby for Father's Day. I used lots of Tim's goodies on this one! For starters, I used the 6.75" x 8.75" Configurations Shadow Box. I covered the insides of the boxes with some TH Vintage Shabby papers, the outer edges of the boxes are covered with some TH Crowded Attic Salvage Stickers and some TH Journaling Tickets.  I also used some Hole ReinforcersMetal  Box Feet Foundations, Corked Glass Bottle, Swivel Clasp,  Hinge Clips and finally Tim Holtz The Journey Stamp Set.


These are so much fun to make! You can configure them in any way you like, hence the name!

Don't forget the random winner of this week's challenge will win a $50 Credit Voucher to the Simon Says Stamp Super Store! Good luck everyone!  



♥ And the winner of my $100 Gift card to Michael's and MS punch is.... Manena Ali! Congrats Manena! Please shoot me an email with your snail mail addy!
