Here is what I have been doing with the Communique line by Graphic 45:

"Floyd's 5 & Dime Store"

the flower I wanted to use for this page was not really the right
color, so I layered a couple colors of Glimmer Mist on top until
it looked right. (the picture is me peeling back a petal to show
the original color)

this picture shows a close up of how I used the Tattered
Angel's "misting tool" like a stencil. I laid the tool on top
of the paper, then sprayed a couple layers of glimmer mist.
When I removed the tool, there is a reverse-stencil pattern
of a scrolled corner was left on the paper.

Supplies Used:
Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist (Graphite & Candy Apple Red)
Prima: Chipboard, Say it in Pearls, Flower & Leaves
Making Memories Tiny Alpha Stickers



I cut out part of a Hambly Transparency for this frame

Supplies Used:


I used paint & glimmer mist all over this layout- don't be afraid
to get messy, it adds creative interest to your projects!!

Supplies Used:
Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist (Antique Brass & Graphite)
Prima Flowers & Leaves
Making Memories Tiny Alpha Stickers

That's all for now- hope you enjoy this line as much as me.

Happy Weekend~

Exciting News!!!

Hey y'all! Happy Friday! :-)
I didn't have time to do my FAVS today, and I will tell you why....
My husband and I just bought our first home!!! After 12 years of renting, we finally became homeowners YESTERDAY! We have been packing and moving all week and most of my scrapbook stuff is inaccessible. {although I do have an emergency scrap kit put together in case I need some scrapping therapy!}

Anyway, we bought an old farm-style house built in 1911- and I am soooo in love! It has plenty of room for our whole family, a huge yard and I get a huge scrap studio!!!!! Yippee! Here is a pic:


thanks for letting me share my excitement with you- have a FAB weekend!!
I will be updating my blog soon with my FAVS about my new house! :-)
xoxo~ Zoa!

Friday Favs 6/5/09

Happy Friday!!!

My Fav's today will feature scrapbook stuff (since this IS my scrapping blog, I thought it would be appropriate to actually feature scrap stuff.... HA!)

My 5 favorite things to use right now- I am using these on every page!

1. Edge Distresser

I distress EVERYTHING! My projects feel naked otherwise. Sometimes people ask me how I do that- here is the answer: I have always used the Heidi Swapp distresser and it is awesome & super easy to use!


Just recently I found a new one from Close to my Heart and I am LOVING it! It has multiple openings, so if one section gets dull, you can just move to another one! (sorry for the poor picture... it is the circular tool on the left)


2. Lace

oh yes, another MUST HAVE for me! I use lace on everything! new, vintage, colorful, white... I never met a piece of lace I didn't like! ;-)


and just recently, I found this DYEABLE lace by Prima- LOVE THIS! You can ink it, spray it, paint it.... the possibilities are endless & you never get the same look twice! How fun is that?!?


3. Flowers

and Prima has LOTS of new ones coming out... and yep, I want them ALL! Here are some sneak peeks:








4. Glimmer Mist

Made by Tattered Angels, this stuff is HOT! I am not kidding- so much fun to use! (and you will feel so creative!) I am using it more and more... with over 80 colors to choose from, you can easily find one to fit your next project!


5. Cat's Eye Chalk Inks

I think most scrapper's have probably found these chalk inks by ColorBox ..... they are a MUST have for any project! These are my 3 favs, but there are lot's of colors to choose from.


that's my 5 for this week~ have a great weekend and Happy Scrapping!!

xoxo~ Zoa :-)
