a set a day...#10...*EDIT @ noon*

***NEWS FLASH***
please scroll down & see the UPDATE in RED below...

WOW!!!

Now it's REALLY getting SUPER exciting...
with CHA fast approaching...

I have TONS of arty info to share with you today...

presenting studio 490 set #10...
another large stamp set...

this one is called...

I AM MY ART...



but before I talk about the new stamps...
I want to share some...

ART PARTS scoop...

I'm sure you saw the photo below...
it was posted on tim's blog yesterday...

it's a VERY COOL new product...
tim calls them ring binders...


Now get this...

I am THRILLED to announce that...
art parts "creative covers"
were designed to use with tim's new ring binders...

creative covers are thick, durable paper board surfaces (just like ALL of my art parts) designed exclusively for altering. whether it's covering them with paper or fabrics, coloring them with inks, paints, or other liquid mediums; Art Parts will not warp or bend like thin chipboard...

there are 2 sizes of art parts creative covers...

a small package & a large...

here's what the large package will say...

This do-it-yourself book kit allows you to be the artist and decide what style of book you want to create. Complete with 4 rounded rectangular covers measuring 5 1/2"x7",
and 2 short & 2 long (for a total of 4 spines) 1 1/2" wide book spine pieces to create both a horizontal and vertical book. The book spines also have precut holes to create simple books using Ring Binders from Tim Holtz® ideology®.

HERE'S THE UPDATE!
I spoke with Ted this morning, after I had already done this post.

we have decided to include 4 spines in the creative covers book kits...
So...
now you have even MORE options...

you can create 2 horizontal books...
or 2 vertical books...
or one of EACH!
AWESOME!

THANK YOU TED...

for giving us even more creative options.
STAMPERS ANONYMOUS ROCKS!

so, included in the large creative covers package are 4 covers & 4 spines, enough to create 2 large books...
one will open horizontally & the other vertically...
(see update above)

the small set will also have 4 covers and 4 spines, so that's enough to create 2 small binder books...
again, one will open horizontal & the other vertical...
(see update above)

the small covers are a fun size...
3 3/4"x 5 1/4"

I can't show the outside of the books just yet...
but...here's the inside of the small one...

this shows what the book looks like when it's assembled...

I LOVE that the pieces are individual...
this makes it so easy to work on...

I LOVE that it lies completely FLAT...
making it so easy to stamp on,
even after it's been assembled...

the outside spine is covered with Claudine Hellmuth's sticky back canvas...

another option is to use tim's tissue tape for a totally different binding...


I'll have tons more to share about creative covers after CHA...
but, one more idea I'll tell you now...

since the covers do not have any holes, they are the PERFECT SOLID base for a project...

I used a large creative cover for a
tim ideology booth project & I am in LOVE...

I covered it with paper...and____?

and if you DO want holes...
the Crop-a-dile works GREAT
to place the hole wherever you need it!

and for another
ART PARTS announcement...

creative covers can be embellished with...
any current art parts or...
or the new ones I've already shown...
and the still secret ones too...

and also with...

ART PARTS BOOK PLATES...

here are the 4 large book plates...
the one on the top right is 5 inches wide...

the large square is 3 1/4...

in addition to adding them to creative covers,
these will make great frames for mini collages...
picture frames...

oh...I have LOTS of ideas brewing for these guys...


ok...back to the new stamps...
I AM MY ART...

I designed these with art journals in mind...
see how this ties into the creative covers above?

starting @ the top...

art...I LOVE the word art & I LOVE this one x 5...

the scroll/leaf is a fun stamp & the perfect spot to place a flower or 2...

it can be stamped horizontal or vertical...
depending on your need...

I LOVED it so much, that it too is
an ART PART...
and it can be stamped with ANY background stamp...
the background stamps will cover the whole art part in one stamping...

quite simply...
is my description of me...
it just states a fact...

I Do...
LOVE TO MAKE ART!

the next saying is another statement stamp...
simple, but true...
dreams are important...

then the do not disturb saying...
this makes me laugh every time I see it...

let your family know...
I can't cook or iron...

I'm making art!

I immediately framed this one & when Rick mentions dinner...
I take it off the studio wall & set it on the kitchen counter...
it gets my point across quickly!

I am my art...I flat out love this one too...

and the last is quickly becoming a favorite...
that's set #10...

now just a few quick peeks before I go...

here's one from the large creative cover...
this will be on display in the ideology booth...

it features tim's AWESOME grunge blocks...
these are SOOOOOOO FUN & so simple!


and also from his post yesterday...
he showed the configurations print box...

that was my super duper large gigantic project
for his ideology booth...

it's LOADED with ideology goodness &
LOTS of art parts too...
it's on it's way to Arizona & I can't wait to see it again...

I hope Mr Fed-Ex treats it with love...

here's the new delivery truck art part...
in a print tray compartment...
with a little face peeking out the window...


I'm so flippin excited about this CHA...
like jumping out of my skin...
can't sleep EXCITED...

I hope you see why...

I'm excited to hear your thoughts...

ok...
here's where I'm headed...

to...

make art!
wendy

Every day is getting more and more exciting! Luv the new set and the book, how very cool is that, but the best part is that I can pre=order now! (sorry if there are any typos, I had eye surgery yesterday, can barely see, so it's almost like typing blind, but I had to comment!)

scrappin-scrappin said...

Mall Rat said...

I am over the top excited about the art part covers that work with the binder rings .. I'm actually giddy :) The stamp set is awesome, I love all the sayings .. I just can't wait to get them .. so now it's time for me to MAKE MONEY to shop .. LOL Have a great day Wendy ! I'm available if you need a gopher for hire at CHA, just say the word ..

borcherding said...

jolande said...

Ohhhhhhh this is awesome.....I sure now....my complete holidaymoney is going to your stuff and Tim Holtz... no holidays but I want to have this stuff...
This is better than a holiday;)(lol)

Eileen said...

Woweee wow wow wow...I'm so glad you and Tim are pals! LOVE how you've coordinated your art parts with his idea-ology. Genius! And so perfect for folks like me who consider ourselves to be both Timoholics and Vecchians.
And this set is right up my alley, as my main focus these days is the art journal. Yea! And thanks.

ellen vargo said...

Oh My Holy you-know-what! These art part binder covers are to DIE for, and I already see SO many other uses for them.. but the bookplates???? My absolute FAV thing so far... I already have an idea brewing... can't wait to try it! You are so flippin' smart.... have fun at CHA - don't implode before you get there from all the excitement! Ellen xxx

Marijane said...

It just keeps getting better! I love all the stamps in this set and the fact that you created Art Parts book covers and spines makes my day. When I saw Tim's post yesterday the binder rings really "spoke to me" but wasn't sure how I could put them to use.
That question... ANSWERED!!! Thanks!

Hels Sheridan said...

I actually read this post as soon as it published but promptly passed out from the excitement... OMG!!!!!!!!!! ART PART BOOK PLATES!!!!!!!!!!! I just... did ... a little... jig!!! (go on, you thought I was going to say weewee didn't you... cos that is what I normally do ROFL)
Anyways... **HELLO RICK!!!**
Once again Wendy, you have surpassed yourself.. those covers... I NEED THOSE NOW!!! and the stamps... I NEED THOSE NOW!!! and the rest of the stuff.. I NEED IT NOW...
Best dash.. am going to see a man about selling off the family silver... well, either that or a kidney ROFL
MASSIVE CONGRATS... from the look of it you have been working flat out¬! Go Wendy!!! xx

Debby said...

I am in heaven between all that you have designed and what Tim has designed. But today my heart is pounding as I love to create books. Oh this new stuff cannot get here quick enough. I can't wait to take another class from you and learn from you!!!! It is so hard to wait for new stuff. I love the Do not disturb saying. My family would add on to that by saying "she is already disturbed". Meaning me. They just do not get it!

Stephanie Rodgers said...

Book covers!!! And, they fit with Tim's ring binders?!!! OMG! I can't wait to get my hands on these! I love making books! Any chance you'll have some book covers to fit your stamp sets? I need to make a new binder for all my new sets in my collection!

Liz in MO said...

Oh my goodness! I love the binders, can't wait. Are those art part letters????

Melody (lacyquilter) said...

Love the stamps. Lots of other cool stuff.

Sharon said...

Really love where you're going with your art parts. But I'm really writing this because I know of your love for POLKA DOTS...do you know that QVC carries Tempt-tations bakers with polka dots? I now they are making dinnerware? You could eat off of polka dots everyday of your life...I'm just saying...you might want to check it out(especially today because its 24 hours of cooking)...I know you don't cook(much)...but you've got to eat so that you can MAKE ART!

Kathy Eddy said...

So many great new things now the decisions, which do I NEED first!

Sandra said...

love the books ....
WOW, lots of fun stuff - I think I am up to 3 jobs now to afford it all!
Sandra ltb

Becky said...

Love this set!

Joyce said...

I think this is going to be the best CHA. I'm just loving all of your products as well as Tim's stuff. I like that you two are working together to make stuff work together. Great ideas! Now I need to win the lottery or find something to sell. LOL

Nancy said...

*sigh*
Now, see, I'm working all of this overtime, it being tax season & all. I've been "allowed" to work as much as I need this month. (Isn't that so very gracious of my employers? lol) And, I thought some of the money I earn would stay in my savings account. Not all of it, but some of it ...
But, nnnnnnnoooooooooooooo!!!!!!! YOU have to keep sharing such wonderful new stamps & art parts with us! (I suppose, though, like Hels, I could sell off something, but who'd want an almost-60-year-old kidney? lol)
Ok, I'd best get back to work .. earn another penny or two ... :o)

michelle said...

Oh they keep getting better and better. . .. love the book cover and the plates! This stamp set is to die for!

I think I will have to go . . .

Helen said...

You have done it again - I saw this briefly at work (when I wasn't supposed to be looking at blogs) and like my mate Hels, nearly passed out with excitement... The stamps are right to the top of the must have list, but the art parts - oh MY. I love them. I cannot wait for them.... please get some shipped to us as fast as you can? Pretty please? Pretty pretty please?!

Susan said...

Love the stamps, book covers, art parts - everything! You've outdone yourself Wendy!

lois Skiathitis said...

I'm speechless so much to think about here today. I love the new stamps and sayings. I can see so many flowers on that floral flourish. The book ring binders are a God end they look so easy to work with. The new art part frames are a must have. I hope I didn't talk to much. LOL!!! TFS!!! :-D

I have to say that since I have followed you both for about 3 years now that this seems to be the biggest release yet...my poor pocketbook ..but alot of great fun supplied to help me MAKE ART! Thanks Wendy. I can not wait for your next book too.
