Kaiser Craft~Chanteuse Collection


Kaiser craft’s new line Chanteuse is full of flowers and muted colors of mauve, olive green and cream. 


Love all the new prima, the butterfly, rhinestone ribbon and say it in crystals, all that I got from Scrappers Cove.  Did you know they have an Online Store, too!


I love this paper with the bird and dress form.  Love the pink tiger lilies, too.


Here I made the ruffle from the bag Scrappers Cove uses to bag your supplies and the butterfly at the bottom is from a class I took with Patti Behan from Ranger.  It is using utee as a faux foil technique. 


This layout was inspired by Lean of  her layout was with bigger hearts and was so pretty.  IMG_4834

Thanks Lean for the inspiration!  You can find this collection from Kaiser Craft mid March~Scrappers Cove will have it in their store then.  Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping bye.  Hugz, Z

Graphic 45~Once in a Springtime

I’m on a roll….lol  two more layouts.  I love fairies and this Graphic 45 line Once in a Springtime is fabulous.  Here is Gabby when she was 2 days old.  The picture is kind of whitewashed… her outfit is a fine light pink that didn’t show up well:


Here is a closer look:


I used a lot of stickles on the fairies and ribbon.  This next layout is when Gabby was 1yr and 4 months.  I used to sew all her dresses.  I always made the collars to big…lol



I used a lot of stickles on the wings and in the middle of the flowers which do not show up well here.  The doily is one I got this past weekend at my antique shop in Pt. Pleasant.  Thanks for stopping by.  Have a great weekend.  Hugz, Z

Prima~Summerhouse~Pt. Pleasant, NJ

Well, today I went to my favorite place in Pt. Pleasant~Summerhouse and Point Pavilion Antiques.



Aren’t these birds so cute….I’m ready for spring as we are getting some snow again this week.


Here is my other favorite store Point Pavilion~I always get great buttons and doilies from here:



Isn’t this funny~you’ll never know what you’ll find.

Over the weekend I went to Scrappers Cove as they got in 16 new boxes and some where Prima!  Here is my layout using the lace, buttons and Prima’s bling, butterflies, flowers and paper line Jack & Jill.   Holly is getting so big she is 5 months old now.

IMG_4720IMG_4722Here is a closer look.  I machine stitched around the pages,  used the vintage lace, and my button I got from my finds today.  Love the cute dog button and dog charms I added to prima’s new flower with the beads.  Have a great week.  Hugz, Z
