I love Halloween so I was super excited to see this month's tag by Tim Holtz.
I drooled over the techniques and products he used. (Not really, cuz I did not want to short circuit my computer. But everyone says they drool over things and I wanted to fit in.) So I hopped online to find all of the products he used and waited impatiently for them to arrive. Oh the joy of waiting for new crafty supplies to arrive. I think it could even compete with the joy of chocolate. (Yeah right, who am I kidding.....new crafty supplies are way better.)
Ok, back to my fantasy of new crafty supplies arriving at my door. Wait, what? This is all a fantasy? ****Sigh*****
So if by 'hopping online to purchase the products he used' you mean 'walked into my studio to find what I wanted to use', then yeah you totally nailed it. It is a well know fact that I get a huge thrill from using my older supplies. (Not even sure I had ever used the pumpkin die before. And it is a Sizzix original. I probably have had that die for 15 years. OMG....I can't believe I just said/typed that out loud!)
Read on to see my take on the October Tim Holtz tag.
