Happy Friday Everyone!  Today on Featured Product Friday I’m sharing one of my favorite products of all time.  Not just one product, an entire line of products!  So what’s it going to be this time around on Featured Product Friday? *Drum roll please*  It’s Tim Holtz Alterations Sizzix Line *Cue music and angel choir*

Today I’ll be showing you all the elements from Tim Holtz Alterations Sizzix Line that I have and use (profusely).  At the end of the post I have a fantastic collection of projects from creative friends and others I found while scouring the interwebs that are sure to inspire you!

Tim’s Alterations line with Sizzix has a variety of components that work together or on their own.  The other great thing about this fine collection from Tim Holtz is how easy it is to use with your favorite creative techniques.  Whatever medium you enjoy working with (paint, paper, metal, jewelry etc.) you can combine elements from Tim’s Alterations line with your go to techniques and materials.

Featured Product Friday: Tim Holtz Alterations Projects, Tips, Tutorials and more! | Pluckingdaisies.com Don’t take my word for it, just wait till you see the creative projects I’ve found around the web!  I discovered so many ways to use Alterations during my research and boatloads of techniques to go along with it.  Be sure to check out the link list at the end of this post I guarantee you will learn something new :)

Featured Product Friday: Tim Holtz Alterations Projects, Tips, Tutorials and more! | Pluckingdaisies.com The Bigz Dies in the Alterations Sizzix line are some of my favorites.  Tim brings his signature style to his line of dies but leaves a world of possibilities open to those who create with them to add their own artistic flair!   I  bought my Sizzix machine because of the Alterations Bigz Dies.

Featured Product Friday: Tim Holtz Alterations Projects, Tips, Tutorials and more! | Pluckingdaisies.com If I had to play favorites with all the elements in the Tim Holtz Alterations line I would have to pick Texture Fades!  I love them love them love them!  Did I mention I love them?  I rarely create a project without Texture Fades they are just so much fun to use and like the rest of the Alterations line can be used on a variety of materials.

Here I have used many different Texture Fades on materials like Copper, Packaging Plastic, Foil Tape, Sticky-back canvas, and Idea-ology mirrored sheets.

What a terrific post, Amy. I have to agree that the Alterations line of dies and texture fades is something I just can’t live without. You have done a terrific job of spotlighting and explaining and the inclusion of the videos is the frosting on the cake. And all the links to the amazing craft projects is an extra plus. And thanks so much for including the links to my little boutique. Hope they will entice a few new crafters to give it a try!

Hugs,
Linda
