Graphic 45~Halloween Cards

Here is a class I’m teaching this week at Scrapbook Memories in Beachwood on Thursday the 18th. 


The jar is Tim’s new die and the witch is done with sizzix’s new pop n cuts die.  The witch actually moves up and down.


You see how it starts out with her flying straight up then when you open the card is is flying sideways.  Love that!  You can see many more samples of this on the Sizzix blog.  Have a great weekend and hope to see you on Thursday.  Hugz, Z

Theresa Collins~Fabrications~Believe Banner

Well, I want to share with you a Christmas Banner I made using Theresa Collins new paper collection “Fabrications”.  This is a class I will be teaching at Scrappers Cove on the 11th of Nov.  in case, you are in the area.  I was inspired to create this after doing the one for Halloween for Dawn.  Thank you Dawn (wink).
I wish I could get the glitter to show better:
The holly border is glitter with lime green stickles, the reindeers are stickled with holly and the letters I used rock candy stickles.  Hard to believe its almost here.  Have a great weekend.  Hugz, Z

Graphic 45 Happy Haunting ~Dylusions

Hi, just wanted to share with you a class I did at Scrapbook Memories with Graphic 45’s new collection Happy Haunting and playing with Dylusions.



I covered the front with canvas and used distress stains and layered with gesso over a prima mask.  Now in class we used the Dylusion sprays and to our surprise the sprays soaked into the gesso and gave it such a great effect.  In these photos you can’t appreciate how vibrant the colors are because I forgot my camera and they where taken with an ipad, thank you Liza!

Didn’t they come out great!  They are really a bright aqua, purple and a little orange.  I know the gesso looks white here but they really aren’t.  The gesso took on the colors and they looked fabulous.  Here are the rest of the pictures:


Here we used the mirror paper from Tim Holtz, it wasn’t in yet so they had to substitute an add a photo.  If you look closely you can see where we stamped on acetate for the windows of the haunted house. 


These page flip up and all the pages have pockets to hold more photos.  All the photo mats are removable to hold more photos or journaling.  Thanks for stopping by and have a great week.  Hugz, Z
