The Stamp Man Challenge~Prima “Fairy Belle”

This is my entry for The Stamp Man Challenge anything shabby chic or distressed.  Here is the front cover of my mini album using the new collection from Prima “Fairy Belle”. 
I used black gesso on the frame and then painted it with tattered rose distress crackle paint, I then distressed the pennants and added lots of rock candy stickles.  It’s a shame you can see all the glitter that is on here.  The girls wings are stickle, as well as her head piece and leaves with added bling on her waist and earring.  As some of you know I will be down under for a couple of weeks.  I hope you don’t forget me!   Hugz, Z

Try It On Tuesdays~Pampered Pets

Hi, this week on Try It On Tuesdays is anything goes featuring your pampered pets. I did a 12 x 12 layout with Holly. She is a Malti-poo which is part Maltese and part Poodle. I used Anna Griffin’s collection Fifi and Fido. I love this collection because it is filled with pinks, greens, yellow and black, not your typical dog/cat paper.



Be sure to check out the other DT creations. Have a great week. Hugz, Z

Holly and My Smash Book

Hi, I just wanted to share with you my latest layout with Holly.  I saved the bows and scarf from the groomer and added them to the layout:


I went to Michaels this week and purchase this:


I love it, this is a 12 x 12 but, they also had it in 8 x 8.  I always like to admire my layouts before I put them in a book.


This is the start of my version of the Smash Book for my trip to Australia.  I will add some sand and shells from there at the bottom.  I’m going to change out the rings and add raffia after I’m done.  Have a great weekend and Happy Easter.  Hugz, Z

Kathryn’s Tea Caddy~DCWV Garden Tea Party

Kathryn from Life on the {Scrap} Beach has been making a Tea Caddy on her Thursday show.  I created this for a very special friend out of the DCWV collection Garden Tea Party.  Kathryn did hers with Prima’s collection Sun Kissed.   I wish I had room on my counter I would make one for myself.  Really, had a lot of fun making this project.  Thanks, Kathryn for the inspiration.


I really love this paper pack it has soft pinks, mauve and brown and glitter, too.


Isn’t this so cute!  I took this right from the show Kathryn did last Thursday.  I used a real tea bag and just cut it down.  Kathryn made hers with flock in it and it looks just like a tea bag.  Inside the tiny envelope she wrote a quote: 




Kathryn did hers with embossing powder and it look just like metal, of course, I couldn’t find my gold embossing powder….(what else is new)LOL  So, I used my gold dabber.


Isn’t this paper line so perfect for this!  I love the birds, butterflies and tea cups.  Here is the top lid:


Linda, I hope you like!  I had a great time making it for you.  Thanks again, Kathryn for the inspiration.  I really didn’t have any intentions of making one but after my conversation with Dawn, I just had to make it.  Be sure to check out Kathryn’s shows every Thursday on ustream.  Have a great week.   Hugz, Z
