Beaucoup D'Amour - Zeus and Zoe

Today I am happy to bring to you a layout created as part of my DT work for the amazing new Etsy store called Zeus and Zoe. Have you been to check them out yet?, they sell an amazing assortment of crafting goodies and embellishments and also some very special one off kits (which are selling like hot cakes, if you see one there you like, be sure to jump on it quickly). Some items seen below on my layout from Zeus and Zoe include, the envelope, slide, keys and the gorgeous metal white and gold flower.

This layout has been made using a mix of both new and old. You will see some new flowers, papers, Prima canvas, ribbon and a handmade stamp (on the envelope). I am most excited about the old though, keys, a slide, and I really love the vintage envelope which is from 'Hotel Times Square'. The little tab on the back of the envelope I had to cut off and also include it as it had a message on it mentioning that all returned letters would go to the 'dead letter office'. Imagine the wondrous mail the dead letter office must have held?, so sad that mail ending up here was eventually destroyed. 

The photo I really really wish I could tell you more about this brilliant photo. I know I am somehow related to one or all of these people but at this stage I am not quite sure how. This photo was found in box of photos which my Grandmother has at her house. I will get to the bottom of this photo, no doubt about it. 

Isn't this tag simply stunning!!!, you can buy these beautiful handmade tags from Berry71Bleu

When Pigs Fly

Here is another project created with the wonderful Graphic 45 'Olde Curiosity Shoppe' range. I thought I would try something different today, time to decorate a box. It is a little crazy, it is a little different but I love the way it has worked out. This will proudly go on my craft room shelf and hold crafty treasures.

The box used is a flat pack box by Kaisercraft, it has been paper covered and top coated with Modge Podge. You will notice quite a few fun little chipboard pieces, these have been purchased on Scottie Porkchops Etsy store, a very fun place well worth checking out.

Exciting News - Zeus and Zoe

Well I have been sitting on this news for quite a while and now I am officially able to share it with you all. I am extremely excited to announce that I will be designing for a brand new blog and Etsy store called Zeus and Zoe.

Thanks for stopping by to look at my latest layout called 'Believe'. This layout has been created as part of my DT work for my LSS Made With Memories. Like most of my layouts it all started off so slowly and then grew and grew and grew. The new range from Graphics 45 called 'Olde Curiosity Shoppe' is just so much fun to work with. It is also handy in the way that you can use up odd trinkets you may have in your stash. Everything just seems to work with it.

Thank you Marivic (Berry71Bleu) for the hot tip on going to the Graphics Fairy, wow, what an array of images. When I found the hot air balloon it was an instant choice, I loved it, so bright and vibrant.
