    Adds fun little bling to projects and packages (29 September 2013)

    This is a fine silver tinsel that is reminiscent of yesteryear. There is a lot in the package but it can be used for so many things...packaging, scrapbooking, card making, miniatures, etc. Lots of fun...

    Great little clear charms (29 September 2013)

    I didn't realize how useful these would be until I got them. They are great little clear charms or small tags in a variety of shapes that can be run through an embossing folder/die cutting machine, misted, painted, inked, stained, decorated, etc. So many creative possibilities.

    Distinctive distress embossing powder (29 September 2013)

    This embossing powder is unique. It contains some grains that don't melt so that when you emboss with it, some grains are supposed to come off when you're finished to give that distressed look automatically.

    Achieve a cool, old-fashioned glittery look (29 September 2013)

    This is a gorgeous glitter and is especially suited for the distress product line. But, it would also be great in other projects. It's a larger grain, not one of those real fine powdery glitters that have been popular for scrapbooking. But, this is a great glitter and will stay put instead of falling off.

    Unique crackle effects (29 September 2013)

    The Rock Candy crackle paint crackles as it dries like the other crackle paints but it's a less intense crackle--more subtle and it seems to me more authentically distressed looking. I really like using this. And, you can put it over any of the distress inks/stains/paints if you want that color to show through.

    Nice embossing ink (29 September 2013)

    This is a nice embossing ink that's a little less thick/sticky than some of the embossing inks on the market, seems to be a better viscosity to this one.

    Distress Inks are great (29 September 2013)

    Another great color from Tim Holtz. These distress inks are great. They react with water and there are so many ways to use them, in combination with the other distress products, or alone. Great for mixed media, scrapbook pages, cards, any projects where you want a distressed look or a look with lots of color. This is a great orange to have in your collection.

    Great paints (07 July 2013)

    These distress paints from Tim Holtz are wonderful. They blend very well with water and all of the other distress items (inks, stains, etc.) in the line and they aren't chalky when dry. The colors are terrific. They have a convenient dauber and you can use them on just about any surface.

    sturdy envelope (30 June 2013)

    These are sturdy enough to carry around with you and should work with any 3 ring binder. The pocket on the front is perfect to keep an index card for journaling the story. These envelopes are perfect for storing a project where you record the story on the index card and store your paper, pics, etc., inside until you've completed the page(s). I'm taking these and the 6x12 envelopes with me on vacation to gather brochures, travel notes, receipts, ephemera, etc.

    double sided and super cute (30 June 2013)

    This 6x6 has miniature versions of the 12x12 papers in the line, though with these colors and designs, you could also easily pair it with solid CS. Double-sided so you get more mileage and have more chances to use the papers. Includes travel words paper and some smaller journaling pieces that will be great for layering.

    super cute garland (30 June 2013)

    This garland is super cute coordinates with the Far and Away collection. The flags are sewn together well and you get 2 yards of garland...that will make a lot of pages or cards.

    cute washi tape (30 June 2013)

    3 rolls of washi tape that coordinates with the rest of the Far and Away collection but still uses colors and designs you could easily use with other projects/pages.

    nice little notebooks (30 June 2013)

    Package contains two notebooks, one small (3.5 x 5) and one larger (~5 x 7) with blank pages inside. Great for recording stories of travel or making notes along the way.

    Little envelopes are so cute (30 June 2013)

    Contains 4 varying sized envelopes. Perfect for storing hidden journaling, notes, a letter or ephemera. Very cute, neutral tones, would coordinate with almost anything.

    Great all-purpose white cardstock (30 March 2013)

    Ali Edwards uses this so I thought I'd try it. I love the texture of the orange peel. Very versatile!

    Great all-purpose album (11 January 2013)

    Quality Album (30 July 2011)

    These albums had been recommended by Stacy Julian and I was pleased when my order arrived and I saw the quality of the album--excellent quality, I ordered four colors and the colors are far more beautiful in person than on the screen. I will be proud to use these to store my family memories and display these in my home.
