More ZOE Cards

I finally used just about every last bit of my ZOE paper pack!  This is a first for me, since I usually hoard (did I just admit I'm a paper hoarder?) away my favorite papers, as if they're just too pretty to cut up and use.  I'm trying to break myself of this bad habit, and actually USE what I have!

So anyway, today I have a couple more ZOE cards to share with you & brighten your day.   The first one features Z7197B Zoe papers, Z3123 Green Enamel Triangles, Z3039 Glacier Twine and the stamp set from G1096 Zoe Workshop Kit.  The sunshine overlay is from Z3169 Artbooking cartridge and the vellum sunSHINE is a Z7197C Zoe Complement.

This next card features the same papers and twine, but a different stamp set, B1462 Lovely Birthday.  I also used some Clear Sparkles (which are retired).

Here's hoping your day is a lovely one!  If you would like to purchase any of the products I used to create these cards, you can do so on my website.

Nat'l Stamping Month-Hello Life for Cardmaking

National Stamping is well underway and by now I'm sure you've had a chance to drool over the exclusive Hello Life stamp sets Close To My Heart is offering this month.

Today I am focusing on the cardmaking set, which I absolutely love!  It has so many possibilities!

I used this set to create these 3 cards.  The colors I chose (Saffron, Poppy and Peacock) are from the NEW Enchantment Color Palette.  I love this color combo, which is great for Fall.  I also used some Poppy Twine & Silver Sequins.  I used the Mini Stapler to adhere the twine onto the third card.  LOVE the Mini Stapler, not just because it's cute & mini, but because it's so easy to use and works well for adhering things when you don't want to use adhesive.  

The Hello Life stamp sets are only available in September for National Stamping Month.  You can order your favorite set(s) on my website for $13.95ea. or all 3 sets for $34.95.

ZOE Workshop

I've been super busy creating with the new ZOE kit and I think you're going to love it's versatility! It's one of those kits that doesn't really have any specific theme, so it can be used for a variety of occasions.  The colors and patterns in the kit are simple, but very appealing to the eye.

The kit was so fun & easy to work with that I went a little cray-cray and created four 2pg. layouts!!!

So if you love ZOE as much as I do, you'll want to be sure to participate in this workshop.  It will be held on October 4, 2015 from 2-5pm at my home in Choconut, PA.  You can participate in person, or get your kit "To Go" and create the pages at your convenience.  Either way, you will need to place your order on my website by September 20th.

Here are supplies I used to create the ZOE pages.


 The following Ink Pads were used:  (optional $6.95ea.)
Z2641 Glacier
Z2173 Slate
Z2164 Sorbet

Nat'l Stamping Month-Hello Life for Scrapbooking

Have you seen the 3 new exclusive stamp sets for National Stamping Month?  They are super-cute on their own, but they also work so well together.  Here is a one-page layout I created using 2 of the Hello Life stamp sets.

This layout features 3 of the NEW colors (Saffron, Peacock & Poppy) from the Enchantment Color Palette.  I random stamped the camera border along the lefthand side and stamped part of the title.  I also used the NEW Cricut Artistry cartridge to cut out the heart, arrow, camera & small photo mat, then added some Poppy Twine and Silver Sequins.  The 2 Hello Life stamp sets I used to create this layout are below.

The Hello Life stamp sets are only available during September, for National Stamping Month.  They are $13.95 for one, or purchase all 3 sets for $34.95 and save $6.90.   You can view all 3 Hello Life stamp sets and place your order on my website.
