Tim Holtz Tickets

I love pieces that are interchangeable and versatile and Tim Holtz has done it with these tickets!  This stamp set is called "Odds & Ends" and has 7 ticket stamps.  Its sort of a celebration as its Tim's 100th design for Stamper's Anonymous.  I can imagine that a lot of thought went into what would be that 100th design and I think we can see that with the coordinating products you can use for these tickets.  The stamps fit the ticket strip die.  You can use the strip as is as a border or use them as individual embellishments. Double click on this picture and you can see more detail in the ticket images.

Here you can see the blank (or mostly blank) ticket that you can add your own message to.  There are tickets for Christmas, Halloween and Valentines. 

THIS is cool.  The words in the Odds & Ends set fit inside these bookplate dies.  Here you can cut your own tags out of old file folders and have the same size tags Tim always uses for demos and for 12 Tags of Christmas.  The labels can be used with the tags or seperately.  GREAT set of dies you'll use over & over.

My head is spinning, is yours?  Ha! Lots of ideas, lots of ways to use these pieces.  Love it.

6 in 60

Alright, new obsession.  I started (yes, STARTED) working on 6 in 60 yesterday and I'm loving it!  This class will begin with some prep work, not much.  Then we're going to go to work!  I'll set a timer (just for fun) and see if we can actually complete each card in 10 minutes.  At the end of our time, we'll have 6 lovely cards in 60 minutes.  Here's what you'll go home with:

This class is Tuesday, December 14 from noon to 2 pm at the shop.  Bring your basic kit.  Class is $22, all materials provided, except for your adhesive.  Call (970.577.1415) or email ( to sign up.  See you there!

$5 Make & Takes, Friday and Saturday

If you're out & about downtown Estes this Friday & Saturday, stop by and do a make & take!  Two to choose from or you can do both!  Below is a pear (one of my favs) with black embossed flourishes on the background panel and a chipboard flourish, with gold or copper Perfect Pearls.  Very elegant!
 Love this little butterfly girl.  Double click on this card and maybe you can see, she's got some sparkle in her wings.  Love it.

Rocky Mountain Memories now has gift certificates!  If your sweetie needs an idea for you for this Christmas season, or if you'd like a stocking stuffer for a friend, stop by the shop and pick up a gift certificate.  Any amount you'd like, we can customize that for you.  It comes in a pretty envelope, all ready to give!

We've also got a selection of stocking stuffers, including stamps which ALWAYS make a great idea for those little items to tuck away into a stocking.  Come on down!

Father's Day & Valentine's for Soldiers

This is the Father's Day card we're doing for soldiers on Thursday.  I'm changing the trees I think. 
Here's our valentine.  Oh, wow, I love this one.  If you double click on it, you can see a larger image.  I used Stampington stamps, Distress Ink (of course), and Tim's embossing folder.

So, if you want to join us, there's still room.  On Thursday at noon to 2 pm,
we'll be having a creatively good time.  What will you be doing?  Hmmmmm?
