These are 4 videos showing products & techniques using Tim Holtz layered Butterfly Die. The videos have been made for the Techniques Craft Club at and would not normally be public. With all of our talented subscribers around the world we thought we would share this one.

Each Video uses different Products. This is a tutorial so the processes are shown step by step and the videos are long.

We hope you enjoy them. Cheers Dianne

Technique Class Club

Fun Fun Fun
Learn new and old techniques to enhance your creative play. This would make a great Christmas gift for your crafting friends.
By experiencing these Technique Classes you get to try before you buy as most products are provided. Allowing you to make educated buying decisions in the future that suit you best.
Learn to use and adapt products you may have already purchased. We can show you how to create with them in new and exciting ways.
Whether you are into Cardmaking, Scrapbooking, Art Journaling, Altered Art, Home Decor or just playing these classes will get your creative juices flowing smiley
Classes can be enjoyed whether you are experienced or a learner.
The Club has several Components.

  • A kit that you get with product to use and to alter, we will also at times add items like pre done die cut or embossed materials so you don’t need to buy the dies or more expensive machines to take part.
  • A video that you can go back and view anytime, even after membership expires
  • A store discount of 10% that comes in the form of  a gift voucher rebate on any orders you make within the time of membership. The amount rebated applies only to products that have not been previously discounted. Your Voucher can then be used to purchase anything in store including sale items or more online classes.

Membership is for 30 days after the date of purchase of a class. Membership stacks if buying multiple classes. If you buy 2 classes you get 60 days or add the 30 days to your remaining balance if bought at separate times.

Most videos will be exclusive, some will be available to the general public.
Conditions of the club may be changed but you will be informed before purchase.


“It’s Not About The Butterfly”

Available Here

Our first online class with kit is releasing and will be on using various mediums and techniques with the Tim Holtz Layered Butterfly and Layered Dragonfly Dies

Its not about the butterfly or dragonfly. These classes focus on teaching you techniques which you can later use in scrapbooking , cardmaking, home decor and in your artwork. Whether or not you are into Butterflies come and join us.

This is the perfect chance to see the results of these fabulous products and dies while learning new techniques. By Pre cutting and embossing the die cuts you get the opportunity to try without having to purchase the die. It also means everyone is working on the same medium so the paint/ink mediums will react the same as ours

A video will be linked to you so you can follow along at your own pace when you want. The first video will be public and available to everyone so you can get a taste of what to expect.

We will be showing you many different techniques using mediums and tools you may or may not have in your home supplies. As so many techniques will be covered in the video not all mediums/tools will be supplied with the kit. Extra techniques shown include using Viva Decor Inka Gold, Ranger Vintaj Patinas, Tim Holtz Alcohol Inks. The alcohol inks are available as an extra kit here

The video will be available for reference so you can view it anytime as your own collection of mediums grows.

  • Lots of Pre cut and embossed Butterflies and Dragonflies in acetate, card, metal, denim. (Enough to complete 8)
  • Tattered Angels Glimmer Glam, Glimmer Glaze and Chalkboard Spray
