2018 Creativation: Booth Tours & Demos…

we are back from the incredibly inspiring (and exhausting) 2018 creativation show.  this trade event is definitely the highlight of the crafting industry where manufacturers and retailers can get together and celebrate the launch of new products.  this show is without a doubt a great deal of work for myself, my team (mario, paula, richele, deb, and joy), and the companies i design for so a sincere thank you to all of them for their dedication and support.  i loved getting to spend time with all of them, and even though we had business as the focus, there was no shortage of laughs…  

a huge shout out and thank you to this group of talented makers for creating amazing show-stopping projects (click on the names to check out their blogs): kaz hallemma williamskath stewartvicki evansjan hobbinszoe hillmanmou sahabobbi smithcathie parrecochelle fowlertami bastiaanscheiron brandonstacy hutchinsonjenny marplesaudrey pettit, yuko cooper, joy kennedyrichele christensen, and paula cheney.  check out the facebook live booth tour videos we did from the show floor…

  4. Tonya says:

    I loved the videos, and have watched many times. I finally found my first Tim Holtz product in a craft bundle. I sent an email of praise of your products. Keep rocking out the best and most unique products.

  5. Susan Fortenberry says:

    I watch a video with the oxide inks on glossy paper. I know you said they needed to be clay based. We have used it on glossy paper and rubbed the top or chalky surface with a paper towel and have gotten that rich color also. Not sure if it is clay base or not. We use a kromkote product.

  6. I was great seeing you and the beautiful booths with the gorgeous samples that your designers team did. I couldn’t stop taking pictures and videos! So inspiring! And great products! I hope you’ve had time to rest and recover 🙂

    It was such an honour to meet Paula and Richele in real life and to see Tim and Mario doing their thing, it made my ‘once in a lifetime trip’ very special ! The stand was incredible, it looks so much more amazing in real life – a credit to the whole team! Anne xx

    thank you for posting these! So nice to see you in action at the Ranger table. Its like a private tutorial!

  34. SUCH an honour and privilege to be asked to create a little something for the Ideaology booth. Thank you to Tim and Paula for asking me and to #teamtim and all the manufacturers for creating the magnificent displays we love to see each year xx

  35. Sherry says:

    Hi, Tim! These were so much fun to watch! I have one question. My audio was not working when I watched the last video (the one at the bottom of the stack of videos), so I couldn’t tell what substance you were using to coat the finished piece (from small round jar). It looked shiny. Can you tell me what it is, please? (So I can go out and buy some :).) Thank you!

    • Sherry T says:

      How about an answer from another Sherry…LOL. That is the Distress Micro Glaze, and you are right it is a small jar but a little goes a long way. My Hobby Lobby carries it. I think Jo Ann’s does as well, an of course how many online stores…

  36. Carol K says:

    BEAUTIFUL! What an amazing team …

  37. Barb O. says:

    Great tour and demos. Especially love the ink on glossy paper demo. Have to try that!

  38. Kathy R says:

    Thank you for sharing this with all of us. You all did a fabulous job.

  39. Karin Beadell says:

    Thanks for sharing all the tours and demos, I can’t wait until we’re able to get these lovely new products. 🙂

  40. Maria Cottingham says:
