We know all of you, our loyal blog and social media followers, waited on pins and needles to find out what our mystery release was at the Summer Create-n-Connect show. We were so happy to see the overwhelming response to the new Tim Holtz Distress Glitters. To say Thank You for all of your support, we figured the only way we could make a Friday even better is by giving away some glitter!
We have 3 FULL SETS of the brand new Tim Holtz Distress Glitter to give away. We’ll also be throwing in a Ranger Apron so you can get your sparkle on in style! We know not everyone has the opportunity to join us at the Create-n-Connect show in Las Vegas, so for this contest we are posting videos from the various amazing media outlets that were at the show.
To be entered for a chance to win, simply watch some of Tim’s demo’s below then tell us in the comments of this blog post, what feature you are most excited about or how one of the techniques Tim demoed will be perfect for your next project! We’ll be picking a winner on Monday so spread the word all weekend long!
