Happy Valentines Day, everyone, and welcome to the latest challenge in our series based on the new book by the awesome Mr. Tim Holtz! Whether you’re a first-time participant or you’ve been with us from the beginning, it’s great to have you here!
Challenge 22, is what we call a product-specific challenge, as completing it requires the use of Tim’s Dimensional Cutting Pad from Sizzix. To be completely honest, I’ve had this little gizmo for quite a while, but this is the first time I’ve used it, and now I’m wishing I hadn’t waited so long. It’s COOL! Open up your copy of A Compendium of Curiosities, Vol.3 to page 62 to learn how to use it.
Win Goodies from Tim and Mario!
As always, we’ll select a “Curiosity Crew’s Choice” winner who will receive an awesome assortment Tim’s products, courtesy of Tim himself and Mario Rossi, his spectacular Logistics Director and everyone’s favorite “Behind the Scenes” social media superstar (follow Mario on Instagram for sneak peeks of Tim’s latest projects)! To be eligible to win, you must visit each of our team members’ blogs and leave a comment there. You can easily access their blogs by clicking on their project photos (your comment on this post counts as your comment on my blog).
The Funkie Junkie Boutique is back to sponsor Challenge 22, and lovely owner Linda Coughlin has a fabulous $25 shopping spree to one very lucky CC3Cer! For a chance to win that shopping spree, link your project here and link to The Funkie Junkie Boutique in your blog post!
Here’s the Crew’s take on this challenge:
Important Stuff to Know Before You Dive In
Our overarching intention with the CC3C— besides having fun making art, of course!— is to help promote Tim Holtz’s book and products. This challenge is intended specifically for those who’ve invested in their own copy of A Compendium of Curiosities, Vol. 3. We don’t post instructions to the techniques for this reason. If you don’t have a copy, you can order one directly from Tim, who will be glad to autograph it for you!
We realize, of course, that many of the technique’s instructions are available online, and there’s no way for us to truly know if our participants have their own copy of the book. The most we can do is invoke the Honor System, and ask each participant to please respect this rule.
Our other goal with these challenges is to promote our two sponsors, Inspiration Emporium and The Funkie Junkie Boutique. Their generous support is so appreciated! To that end, entries that promote other businesses will not be eligible to win the sponsor prize OR the Curiosity Crew’s Choice.
If you have any questions about the challenge in general, check out the CC3C F.A.Q. here.
Please, please be sure to read and heed the rules listed in the Inlinkz link-up at the end of this post before you submit your piece. too. We don’t have a lot of rules, but those we do have are important, and entrants that don’t follow them will be disqualified.
Okay, Enough Talking. Let’s CRAFT!
Rock that Dimensional Cutting Pad, you guys! We can’t wait to see what you create.
This challenge is open through Friday, February 27. Have fun!
