Technique 14: Guilded Kraft Glassine
A Compendium of Curiosities, Vol. 2, page 39

Hooray, it’s Friday! I hope you’ve all enjoyed a fantastically creative and happy week. CC2C #14 begins our exploration of one of the coolest paper products Tim’s come up with yet: Kraft Glassine. If you’ve played with it before, you know how versatile it is; if not, you’re in for a treat! This stuff is awesome for creating cool textured effects, and it takes alcohol inks beautifully! Open your Compendium 2 to page 39, and let’s do this!


It’s the third Friday of the month, and that means our challenge is sponsored by the awesome Funkie Junkie Boutique, who is graciously offering a $25 gift certificate to the winner of this week’s challenge! Thanks to Linda, the Funkie Junkie, for her generosity! The winner will receive their gift certificate around August 5, when the shop re-opens after a short vacation.


To participate in CC2C #14, create your own work of art using the Guilded Kraft Glassine technique on page 39 and link it to this blog using the InLinkz button at the bottom of this post. You’re golden as long as you honor these simple rules:

Follow the technique as it’s written in A Compendium of Curiosities, Vol. 2 (adding your own special flair, of course!), and clearly state that the technique comes from Tim’s book. 

Include a link to this post in your blog post (or photo description if you’re linking from an online photo-sharing site). 

To be eligible to win the $25 shopping spree, you must include a link to The Funkie Junkie Boutique ( 

Out of respect to Tim, please don’t post the technique instructions on your blog! Any entries that don’t follow this rule will be unlinked. 

This challenge closes on Thursday, July 26 at 8 pm MTD. Please see the CC2C FAQ here for more information.


Simon Says Stamp will be announcing the winner of last week’s challenge on their blog very soon, so be sure to watch for your name! I’ll add the link here when it’s posted.


Have a beautiful weekend, everyone!


P.S. If you don’t have them on hand, you’ll want to get a bottle of Picket Fence Distress Stain, Perfect Pearls Mist, some Ranger Metal Foil Tape, some of Tim’s Core’dinations paper, and Ranger Ink Refresher to add to your stash for upcoming challenges (not necessarily in that order). I’ll try to let you guys know in plenty of time when a challenge is coming up that requires a specific product beyond the standard Tim Holtz stash items.
