Tim Holtz Paddles For The Crafty Scrapper

Happy September everyone! Time is sure flying by this year. Anyway, I was fortunate enough to be able to attend the Tim Holtz event at The Crafty Scrapper in July, and Carolyn, the owner, asked me to help her and her manager, Gena, to make some numbered paddles for customers to shop while attending classes. I made 16 of the 43, and used techniques from Tim's Compendium of Curiosities series. Here they are. Also, if you would like to see the others that Gena and Carolyn made, click on over to The Crafty Scrapper. Thanks, and I hope you enjoy!
Thanks so much for looking, and for those of you who attended the classes, and gave me compliments on the paddles, MWAH to you!

I hope your hands get creatively dirty soon!

  7. Love your paddles! The Crafty Scrapper is going to have a problem. Everyone is going to want to keep their paddle. I guess you will have to make more. Great job!

  9. Seriously cool! So many different styles and techniques - I'd've been fighting over which paddle was mine to wave for the day! I would have been after the unicycling man I think, or the glamorous woman on the beach, or the fab industrial one, or the amazing postage stamp. Hmmm... clearly I'd have been delighted with any of them, really!
