What's your crafty obsession? Is it making jewelry or altering everyday materials? Mine changes week to week, but I'm currently crushing on Tim Holtz. He's an amazing crafter and the scrapbooking and rubber stamping educator for Ranger Industries, a crafts supplier. Check out his site for some inspiration: www.timholtz.com

My favorite Tim Holz creation has got to be his gorgeous grungepaper roses. They're so intricate and pretty! I've been dying to learn how to make them. How about you?

Not Just Scrap in Centereach is hosting a class on April 11. They will show you how to make Tim Holtz-style roses using grungepaper, cardstock and patterned papers. To sign up for the class, contact Not Just Scrap at (631) 580-1118 or visit online: www.notjustscrap.com
