Tim Holtz Holiday Inspiration Series...Special Delivery

Hi folks...we're almost at the end of Week 2 of the Tim Holtz Holiday Inspiration Series 2017, crikey where does time go and today I'm sharing my Special Delivery Home Decor project using Idea-ology Vignette Boxes, the Christmas Stash Paper Pad, lots of Christmas Ephemera and Idea-ology goodies...
I covered the Vignette Boxes with paper from the Christmas Stash Paper pad using Distress Collage Medium Matte but if you don't have the Vignette boxes you could always recycle packaging that you have lying around...
I spritzed the Idea-ology Crinkle Ribbon with Candied Apple Distress Spray Stain and the Idea-ology Small WoodlandTrees with Peeled Paint...
I wrapped the parcels with the Crinkle Ribbon, Christmas Design Tape and Metallic Trimmings Ribbon, stacked them on top of each other and fixed them in place using my hot glue gun...
I coloured the Idea-ology Decorative Deer and Baubles with Alcohol inks, using a magical trick from our adorable Professor. Put a few drops of the Alcohol Ink in a small cup, drop in the baubles, cover the top and shake well and hey presto...abracadabra, beautifully coloured baubles. Wipe out the cup with paper towel and continue with the next colour until you have all your embellishments coloured.
I added a Cabinet Card Frame, a large Christmas Ephemera image, Christmas Paper Dolls coloured with Distress Markers and lots of Christmas Remnant Rubs. I created hinges from white cardstock for the framed portrait and large Ephemera image so that they would stand up on the parcels. And continuing with the decoration I added more Christmas Ephemera, a Christmas Transparent Tile, Christmas Typography, Snowflakes from Idea-ology Frozen Findings coloured with Picket Fence Distress Paint and dusted with Distress Rock Candy Glitter. I dabbed Picket Fence Distress Paint on to the Christmas Trees using my finger and fixed the pearls and snowflake in place with a dot of hot glue...

and added an Idea-ology Wood Slice decorated with Christmas Ephemera
