There were 70 participants in each of 4 classes he taught. These are the friends who came with me. From left to right - Me, Celestine Hines, Lisa Chattergee and Sandi Haertig.After waiting almost 2 hours in line at Stampin Up! last week, I told all of the ladies to make sure that they were at the door at least 1 hour before class. They were so glad they came early. They opened the doors 30 minutes before class started and this gave us plenty of time to meet up with Tim Holtz and his assistant Mario who puts together all of the class kits. It was also great because we got first dibs on t shirts, hoodies, bags, and other great eclectic Tim finds. Most of these things sold out within the first 10 minutes.
This was the first class we took. We made 5 jewelry pieces from Tim's ideology line. He is great at teaching. No one gets left behind and everyone finishes their projects. These jewelry pieces were so much fun to make.
These 3 pieces are the other 3 classes. The top left was a quilt class with everything on it handmade and hand pieced. The project on the right uses lots of great Tim Finds in a neat frame covered with tiles that were hand made in class. Although we didn't take the two top classes, we were at the Queen's Ink all day.
The project at the bottom was the best project I have ever made. It is a hand bound book that is covered with metal that we embossed and then colored using alcohol inks. There are great Tim Ideology pieces all over the books covers. I had so much fun making this book and learning how to hand bind and put together a book of any size. The class took over 4 hours and it was so worth it. We all agreed that we can't wait to have him come back to the store so we can take some more great classes with Tim Holtz.
