To kick of this new year I am sharing here, thanks to ScrapbookCom, new Tim Holtz Vault Collection Dies. There are just three of the new collection sitting here on my work space. And I am in love! 

I'm in love I'm in love and I don't care who knows it!

Yes. Indeed. Swooning over beautiful dies that lend themselves to DIY gifting, floral layering, plus butterflies.

Need I say more?

In the above two images you are seeing an ode to the Vault Scribbly Butterfly.

Why 'vault' you say? I don't know. But I can surmise that these dies were once archived and are now back in a fresh new set. I had not that Scribbly Butterfly before. 

To make: I inked new Mixed Media cardstock with Bundled Sage and Antique Linen Distress Oxide.
Then with the Mesh and Linen Background Stamp I distressed it some using Bundled Sage.
After that I then used the wider butterfly and cut it from my altered paper. Super subtle but oh so happy making right there.

This here make not only shows off the Vault Wildflowers, but also that fancy new Vault Pillow Box and Bag set. That will be used ALL the time here in this making space.

So may possibilities with these dies. A pillow box (which is what the Vault Scribbly Butterfly is sitting on). A tag that can be used to cut a whole lotta paper types out. Then a card that fits inside the bag. I'm thinking hidden journaling too. Yes to that! Then those vintage tags that we will be using over and over again. 

What do you think so far?

Lastly I wanna share with you one die set that has already been mentioned: Vault Wildflowers.

Who is here for layers of flowers? I for one say yes to that!

This situation here is gonna call for having these already pre cut out of solid paper, or patterned paper as you can see above (Used THIS Cozy patterned paper for that one...because green). Or even your mixed media papers that you don't know what to do with. You have any of those? Cut them up with the wildflowers and just have fun!
