I was new to scrapbooking. I only just glanced at Tim Holtz items. Truth be told they always intimidated me. I never knew how I would ever use any of his stuff, it was also not my style. Until a few months ago I never even knew really what his distress ink was!! Little did I know how much that had saved me! hahah
Looking back I was glad that I did not know what that I know now. I also never even realized that I have and TH items all a long. When I first got into embossing, I was always on the look out for new powders. One day will browsing HL I found a bunch on Clearance. Looking at them the other day I realized that they are TH distress embossing powders!!!! I have had his items for years and never even realized it. Now my collection keeps growing and growing I have newly discovers the distress inks and stickles. I have yet to use the stickles, but I am sure that I will in the near future.
So looking at how my collection had started and what it is today, a lot has changed in my views on scrapbooking. I can see the change in my styles over the years and my tastes. I know that I will always be changing. Its just cool that you can see yourself grow and change in the style of your layouts. I never noticed mine until about last year when I had to go through all my scrapbooks that I had made. I have learned a lot and have really learned a whole lot more thanks to SB.com!
Okay now that I think that I am way off topic ahahah.
Here is what I found out my collection to have started this "horrible" "new" addicition! hahah
Just embossing powders that I didnt even know started it:
Then it grew to just adding stickles,
then I added distress inks, little did I know that all my items went together I have most of all the collection items. hahahah
I also have added some embossing folders and some wonderful tools! So here is my whole TH collection!!!
And my new addiction is driving me crazy, because now I feel incomplete since I have some powders and not the stickles and inks to go with them and its driving me crazy!
And now I am on a spending freeze for the month! UGH
Until Next Time ;)
