This funky Tim Holtz Idea-ology flip frame is the perfect tabletop display for virtually anything. One page is visible at a time, so you flip the pages to rotate the art, changing what’s on display based on your mood or even who’s coming to visit.

I’ve commemorated a special trip with mine, but you could easily theme yours around a given holiday (how cute would it be to have a child’s holiday photo in it and add a new page each year?) Also great for weddings, anniversaries, school pictures etc.   And if you’re not into pics, why not create a photo-free display? This would be a great showpiece for inspirational quotes.

This is a relaxed class with a lot of collage work. You’ll learn lots of Distress Ink techniques including Perfect Distress, Wrinkled Distress, Wrinkle-Free Distress, and Rusted Enamel. We’ll also use a Sizzix diecutting machine to add texture to your pages with embossing folders.

If you do bring photos, please note the pages are approximately 3” X 5” so you will want to size your photos accordingly. I print mine at CVS using their ‘collage and mini prints’ option. It’s helpful to print the photo in two sizes (2” X 3” and 3” X 4”) so you can have options on which size works best when you’re in class.

The size of the pages allows great freedom of expression.  You’ll be surprised how much you can fit on each one.

Working with texture paste and other mixed media products really ramps up your pages a notch or two. I can’t stress enough the artistic freedom available in this workshop.  If you don’t work with photos, you will be fine! This is a great way to create a special tabletop album for any occasion or for your own inspiration flip book of images/quotes that inspire you.
