Ustream Class this Wednesday 1/28


We will be doing Alberto Juarez  “book in a box,  box in a book” I did at Art Venture.  I have made my book a little bigger.

You will need:

2 pieces of  chipboard 6 x 7

1 piece 2 x 7


I know the middle is WRONG should be 2 x 7

Then using  7 x 8 pattern paper wrapped the 6 x 7 pieces with your pattern paper making sure to miter your corners leaving about 1/8 gab at the corners.  I will be using the Bo Bunny Madeline collection in class.



The middle 2 x 7 piece you will need to wrap it with a piece of cardstock 3 x 8.  Score 1/2 inch at top and bottom and apply tape and fold up.  You will apply tape to the 1/2 inch on the 7 inch side and yes you will glue it to the inside with they chipboard on the outside spine. 

Next, we will make the outside bump to mimic a hard book spine.


Next we will be working on the box to go inside:


For the box that goes inside the album you will need:

2 pieces 6 3/4 x 5 scor at 1 inch and 3 inch

2 pieces 6 1/2 x 5 scor 1 inch and 3 inch and 1/2 inch top and bottom

Note:  you will be scoring with the 5 inch side at the top of your scor board.  I will show you in class how to assemble the box.

Then for the album inside you will new you will cut 6 pieces of chipboard at 6 1/4 x 5.  We will be doing the mini next week. 

I will also, be adding a lot of flowers to the front cover as well, as using the Prima die doilies.  If you don’t have it you can use any paper doily you may have and any other embellishments you wish to add to the covers of this project. 

So, grab your favorite collection you have been hording and come and play!  Hope to see you there.

Julie Nutting Doll Manner~Art Venture

Finally, finished my banner with the new dolls from Julie Nutting that I did at Art Venture.


I left the tags loose so I could journal behind them if I want.  I haven’t strung it up yet as I think I would like to make a mini out of it, if I could.  Have a great week! ~♥Hugz, Zandra♥

RECAP~Prima Art Venture 2015

SO, much fun at Art Venture with June.IMG_4531

This was our first class with Julie Nutting:


We got to play with the new stamps and water color and can’t wait for them to come out.  Love playing with them.


Next class was Jamie from Prima and her canvas bags.  This was so much fun and I used her new mermaid stamp on my bag.  This was Carol, Ash and me.


The last class of the day was Trini from New Zealand which was 3 layouts using some of the new mixed media products and Jodie Lee Collection Butterfly.


These were her samples, I had hardly any sleep and was so tired that I was not able to finish these. 


Next was 3 hours of intense concentration to get his mini done and it was well worth it!  Love this mini!


These were Frank’s new layouts, just love those pearls.


Next class was my favorite with Finnabair!


So, much fun and got to play with the new art basics.  Loved how it turned out!

The last class of the day was with Alberto:


This was another that I did not get a chance to finish.  Such a fabulous time at Prima Art Venture!  If you ever get the chance to go to one it is well worth it!

Well, glad to be home and you can see all the close up of the classes and some of the new CHA products on my Ustream show from last night.  Be sure to leave a comment and tell me what was your favorite from CHA and I will have some prizes for next week.
