Tons of New Tim Holtz Products! Artwork by Rhonda Secrist Thomas!

Filed under Art Projects, Cute as a Button, Giveaways, Newsletters, Rhonda Secrist Thomas, Sale, Tim Holtz

Note: most of the links on this post no longer work, as we moved to a new Web site in 2018. However, you can see the supply list items from Rhonda’s project that are still available on the new site.

A couple quick announcements before Miz Bella (Kim Ayers) introduces a cute project by Rhonda Secrist Thomas.
First: I just put the ENTIRE Buttons Section On Sale! That’s in addition to the Vintage Sewing & Cooking Collage Sheets AND the Household Charms — all On Sale through Sunday night, February 15th!
Second: there’s a new FREE Gift Kit: Garden Fairy Home, as we’re continuing our button mania (yes, that little mushroom with the tiny door (!) in the photo is a button)! More info

Here we are mid-month already with Miz Rhonda Secrist Thomas and her offering for the Cute As A Button Kit and Add-On Kit for February!

The images of the vintage kittens, sewing trade cards and sweet little girls playing in Rhonda’s creation just make me smile every time I look at it. The palette of the Peeled Paint paired with the Grey Blue Seam Binding is complimentary to all of the combined images, don’t you think? Rhonda said:

“Using Distressed Paints-Peeled Paint, I was able to quickly add some color to my Configurations Box – 6.75 x 8.75. I simply ran a thread through the center of the Grey Blue Seam Binding then pulled it to make the ruffled trim for my box; and added some of these adorable Doll Buttons – 6mm Mix with a dab of glue to pull it all together.”

I looooove those Japanese Cat Buttons! My daughter and her friend raided my supply of the Japanese Cat Buttons AND the other super-duper Cat Buttons that I had, so alas! I must place another order!

Speaking of kittens — my favorite image from the entire project is the top left from the Victorian Kittens Collage Sheet. They’re just searching everywhere for their mittens! The little Wood Mini Spools with bits of thread wound on them set here and there in a few of the cubbies are pretty cute too.

You won’t have to search for Rhonda’s supply list! Take a stroll and visit Rhonda for more pictures and background on her project at her blog.

And, check out the Kittens & Mushrooms Giveaway (below) that Leslie pulled together, inspired by Rhonda’s artwork!
