CHA Day 1!

Here you go guys!

Here are the CHA projects that I did for Tim Holtz Ideaology booth. The first is a wardrobe trunk is created from configuration boxes and has two compartments. In the larger compartment, tags hang like party dresses. There are 12 tags, one for each month. The monthly tags hang individually on the opposite wall each month. Bingo numbers attach magnetically to the pocket watch for the day of the month, creating a perpetual calendar.













The second project is a box or field camera. This camera type was popular in the late 1800's. This version is also created from Configuration boxes. Photo's slip into pockets hidden in the folds of the bellows. In the back is a box file with space for more photo's.











I will post the monthly tags on the blog tomorrow. I am also checking on whether or not I can show you the Graphic 45 projects here on my blog or wait until they show them on their blog.

Both of these projects will be offered as video tutorials after the products used become available.

Thanks for checking these out!

You have got so much talent and creativeness under that pretty red hair. Not in my wildest dreams could I come up with any ideas even close to these.

  18. Your architecture background is clearly visible in these incredible creations. I'm just worried that some company will spirit you away and we won't have you on "Team Laura" anymore. I'm sure you are surrounded by ooooohhhs and aaaaaaaahhhhs in person, too. Can't wait to see what else you've got. Drink in all the yumminess and bring us back some more great ideas.

  29. WOW! WOW! WOW! Laura!!! These projects are fabulous! I hope you're going to teach how to make them. I especially would like to make the wardrobe. In my early teens I use to make paper dolls and and outfits for them...I've been thinking of doing that again and your wardrobe trunk would be perfect to keep them in. Hope you're having a great time at CHA.

  36. Laura,
    No words,,,,,no words.....no words.......,., That is just about one of the most creative idea's I have ever seen. If I just knew how, I would say I am speechless!!! Your trunk needs to contain a copy of Fannie Flagg's latest book "I Still Dream About You", A very witty tale revolving around a vintage trunk.

  40. My husband was stunned and actually asked for the pair as he could "see them on our side unit"
    first time ever he showed any interest although generally supportive in the "if it makes you happy vein!!" This really could be THE one for the boyz!!!Looking forward to more!! Thanks Flower, Debb.

  43. Oh my word!
    I had to pick my jaw off the floor...
    These are amazing and can't wait to see how you made them

    ReplyDelete
  44. I found you after Tim posted the Steampunk clock some guy made based on the one you made for a previous CHA. I can't stop coming back. You think so far outside of the box you are in your own world. I love it. I can't imagine how excited Tim must get- he thinks outside the box but not nearly as far as you do. I get so frustrated trying to find inspiration because so many crafters are making stuff that frankly is far below my skill set but you push it and I love it. My 13 year old daughter and I are about to tackle the castle as a "Queen of Hearts". She has never been interested in crafting with me (what?!? how did a I get two not-crafty kids?) so I am super excited. I might have to tackle the camera…I can't believe you went there….really I can't.

  45. I just stumbled upon you on youtube in December and haven't been able to take my eyes off of you and your work since. You outdo yourself with each new project. You are an inspiration to all of us. I thought I was going in the direction of jewelry, but you now have me hooked on paper again. I have madly been ordering all new products just because of you.
    WOW!!! I can't wait to see what you will come up with next!!!

  61. Oh. My. HECK!! How awesome is this??!! WOW! That's all I can say! So I'll say it again. WOW!! I love both of these projects. How brilliant of an idea to use the configuration boxes to make something other than a shadowbox. I'm pinning both of these bad boys to my pinboard. Amazing!

  65. Hi Laura - You have outdone yourself. I will definitely go to the Ranger booth tomorrow and check them out in person. Simply amazing ...

    ReplyDelete
  66. Hi Laura - I had just started looking at your amazing CHA Tim Holtz Project; when my husband walked into the room. He immediately sat down and started to asked what I thought you used to makes these projects. We probably sat for half an hour playing the guessing game and just pouring over how beautifully made your projects are constructed. The long and short of the story is....now my husband wants to help me build both projects once you have your written tutorials out. You really outdid yourself....and that's saying something when last years projects were as stunningly wonderful.

  78. Always impressed by your creativity of design! I'm so excited especially about the camera -- my hubby is a photographer and I'm hoping you'll be doing a class on that one. I think it would make a fabulous gift for him to display some of his work! Way to knock it out of the park...TFS!!

I have already made up my 12 month tags which have some of my own spin on them. Can't wait until you put up tutorials on the trunk and camera!! PLEASE don't make us wait too long!!! Thanks again!! You are truly amazing!
