Try It On Tuesday~Anything Goes Challenge

I don’t do cards often, so, for this week at TIOT I made a pop-up box card.  I hand cut the Pagoda and used my cricut to make the bridge, lanterns and tree. 
Closer look of the inside, I also cut the bamboo and smaller pagoda  from my Pagoda cartridge and stamp the bird in the left hand corner. 
I made this for someone special and the best thing about it is that it folds down to slip into the envelope.  So, it is a surprise when they take it out:
Here is the back of the card:
I added flower soft to the tree and I made a small lantern to write my message and stamped it with a Geisha girl.  It is hard to see the little dragon’s on this black paper.  Loved how it turned out.  Be sure to visit the other DT members and see what they have created this wee on Try It On Tuesdays.  Come play.  Hugz, Z

Prima Masks and Canvas Book

Just wanted to share with you my Prima canvas book.  I used Prima’s mask and Dylusions and Lindy’s sprays.  I punch the butterflies from the packaging  and created the roses using Donna Salazar’s die Rose Creations:


I cut out the little girl with my cricut  and used Dylan’s stamp on the inside of the cover:


These prima pages have a lot of the masking done for you.  Can’t wait to add more pages.  Have a great week.  Hugz, Z

2 New Layouts ~Adornit Princess Collection

I created these 2 layouts using an old collection by Adornit the Princess Collection:
Holly in her car seat, here in New Jersey it is a $1000.00 fine if you don’t have your pet in a seat belt.  Yes, it is $1000.00.  I take the bandana’s and Holly’s bows in her ears and created this layout.   And this is Zoey our new little girl:
Here is a close up of the mirror letter after I stamped on it.  You can see my camera in the reflection…lol  Hugz, Z

I’ve never done a you tube video so, I will just have it posted here.  Jim from the gentleman crafter sent me a package.  It started when I saw his video on his haul from Michaels mixed media items.  I went to Michaels as soon as I finished seeing it and one of the items in his video my Michaels didn’t have it.  So, I had asked him if he could get me the one item I really wanted.

You see when I was born my Grandma bought me this doll:


She has a reversible outfit I used to have a doll stand for her, but  has since broke.  Anyway, this is the item I asked Jim to get for me:


But being the bad boy Jim is he sent me all this!


Aren’t these so great, I love them!  Thank you so much, and he went right out the next day to get these for me.  He is so sweet and with all his work and deadlines I really appreciate it so much!


I can’t thank you enough, I love it all but especially the doll heads!  Have a great week, mine has started out to be awesome already and Gabby is home!  Hugz, Z

Red, White & Blue Forever~Gabby

So, excited Gabby is coming home this weekend from Australia!  I did another layout of her using We R Memory Keepers “Red, White & Blue” collection.  Just love this photo of her. 


I love zippers (well, then again it does start with a “Z”…lol)  I want to try Maya Roads tutorial on how to make a butterfly with zippers.  I love to make fireworks on dark blue paper with stickles. Enjoy the weekend!  Hugz, Z
