Zappy Dots & another collage

Today I have two layouts to share. Both layouts use Zappy Dots. The beach layout uses two flair from the Vintage Sailor line.

The chihuahua layout uses two flair buttons from the I Love Chihuahua line. There are also flair buttons for pugs, pitbulls, daschunds, labs & yorkies.

I also made another collage. I stenciled the background, using Tim Holtz distress inks. Then I added stamps, ephemera & a vintage image. The pink leaves are also vintage and are stapled with the tiny attacher. The words are cut from Tim Holtz tickets.

Creating... Collages!

I love making collages! I can use inks, stencils and stamps and just have fun! Then there are the pretty papers, fun embellishments and images - I never get tired of creating collages!!!

I'm posting three collages today, titled "Birds of a Feather", "Remember" & "Dream". The first two use vintage cabinet card images.

"Dream" is a photo of me as a child. I love those paper lantern stickers (been in my stash forever!) and how they contrast with the soft sprayed background. Making collages is a great way to use up your stash!

Lovin' Zappy Dots!!

I made this card (my first project) for the Zappy Dots design team. The card is 5.5" x 5.5". I layered it up with patterned paper, die cut scallop, large & small doily, Prima flowers & blue buttons. The blue transparency piece is from LYB; the hello flag from Jillibean.

And the flair button? A Zappy Dot, of course!! It's from the set called Vintage Sailor. I love the Zappy Dots flair buttons!!

I know it's early, but when you get such wonderful images like these to work with, I had to create right away! I'm loving all the vintage Halloween images from Gecko Galz this month.

I made 3 tags and a journal page. There are also harvest images and I'm thinking I will make some Thanksgiving cards with those!
