My First Pocket Letter~Blue Fern Studio~Montage


Here is my very first pocket letter front and back:


Here are some close up of the pockets:


You can see the youtube to see what are in the individual pockets.  This was started by Janette Lang and you can read about it here.

This was for my partner and she loves, turquoise, pink and gold.  I gold leaf  the edges and added a post card from my home town.  I used Blue Fern Studios Montage collection.   This was so much fun and I hope she likes it.

Try It On Tuesday ~Pearls for Girls Challenge

This week on Try It On Tuesday the challenge is Pearls for Girls.  I created an Art Journal using lots of flea market lace, pearls, flowers and glass glitter.
Here is a closer look at the cover and some of the inside pages:
I used distress inks, Prima Bloom Sprays as well as, Heidi Swapp and Ranger’s Liquid Pearls for the pages.
That is my book for this week’s challenge and I hope you go over to TIOT to see the other beautiful creations from our design team members.  Come play with us this week!  ~♣Hugz, Zandra♣

Bloom Girls & Prima Watercolor Pencils

Just wanted to show you what I have been playing with:


Here are the first few stages:


I have also done theses:


This was the very first one I did and used momento ink which did not dry so you can see it did smear in places.  Tried it again:


Skin was a lot better the second time around.



Like this one a lot, although I could have done better with the butterflies.  Have a great weekend!  ~♥Hugz, Zandra♥

Ustream Show Wed. 18th~Prima Butterfly Mini

Tomorrow we will be finishing up the BoBunny “Book in a Box, Box in a Book” mini. 



This is the mini we will create using Prima’s new Butterfly collection.  Ashliegh from scrapsbuttonsnbows will be creating a beautiful box to hold this mini.  Can’t wait to do it.  This will be the last project I will be doing for Scrapadabadoo, as I have decided to step down from the design team.  It has been a great experience and want to thank Barrie and Carol for the opportunity to work with them and the other wonderful guys on the team. 

So, if you would like to follow along tomorrow night here are the cutting measurements from chipboard.


You will need 6 pieces of chipboard 6 1/2 x 6 1/2 for the pages.

The cover is 6 5/8 x 6 5/8 and you will need 2 pieces, then for the spine one piece cut at 2 1/8 x 6 5/8.


You will need connector strips/hinges to adhere the pages together.   5 pieces at 6 1/2 x 1 1/4 four pieces at 6 5/8 x 1 1/4.


If you will need to decide what color to make your hinges.  If you want to use what I did in the sample you will need to cut your strips from kraft cardstock.  Also, if you have the Prima bloom spray in the Berry Wine, that would be a great choice as well.  In this book for class I will be using white strips as I plan on painting the edges with white paint. 

So, 8:00 pm EST tomorrow and I will have some show and tell before we get started.  ~♥Hugz, Zandra♥
