If you love many of Tim Holtz’s products and are NOT yet signed up to take Tim’s very first online class, I can only ask “Why Not”? This two-week online set of eleven classes are for any paper crafter who wants to understand: how to use, when to use, and why to use all the different types of inks, colorants, markers, papers and more that we already have in our stash, or that we might want to add to our craft supplies in the future. In Tim’s words, these classes are all about technique. “The goal here is not to just make pretty things, our goal is to understand the “how’s & why’s” of the products too.”
It is an online class which incorporates the very best formats available for online classes in that they are interactive classes because you can ask questions and interact with the instructor and other class participants in the Class Forum, but you can actually “attend” the classes and watch the videos on your own schedule, and the very best thing is that you have LIFETIME access to all the class materials, videos, PDFs, etc.!!
For those of you who are not yet signed up, here’s the link to check it out: http://www.onlinecardclasses.com/timholtz (Be sure to watch the video on the information page and then you’ll understand why all of us who paper craft should take this class!!)
For anyone who still wants/needs to order supplies for the class, or for anything else pertaining to Tim Holtz’s products, I’m posting a link here that is an actual 84 page INTERACTIVE PRODUCT CATALOG of Tim’s products that you can page through online, which will make it easier going forward for all of my customer's to make up your lists of products that you want to order and then just email it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org . (Please put the word “ORDER” in your email’s subject line!!) But what I need to be sure that you understand is that this catalog shows all the products with their MSRP prices (which means “Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Prices”), and unfortunately, I’m not able to edit those, so I want to remind all of you that my prices are always an average of at LEAST 25% or more off of the MSRP!!! You never need a Coupon Code, you never have to wait for a sale, and you never have to jump through hoops to get my discounted prices—they are that way 24/7, 365 days a year!! So when you’re making your lists to email to me, just total it up using the MSRPs that you’ll see in the interactive catalog, then deduct 25% to get your average total with me!!
Here’s the interactive catalog link for Tim Holtz’s 2012 Product Lines: http://www.flipcity.com/fvx/ulib/1f57b05b-9b24-4fbb-8631-8b2b09442f2f/9147/1/Web/mybook.html
