1. Frilly & Funkie Friday Focus

    20th January, 2017

    Happy New Year friends!

    Sorry that it’s been over a month since my last post. I spent Christmas in the UK with family and have been working on some projects for Creativation (formerly CHA)… but more on that in a later post. 😉

    Today I have the pleasure of hosting the Friday Focus at the Frilly and Funkie Blog! We’re featuring Tim Holtz and Ranger Collage Mediums and Texture Pastes, and for the next two weeks The Funkie Junkie Boutique are giving an additional 15% discount off these products! YIPPEE!

    Have a great weekend and if you’re at Creativation, have a great show!

  3. Frilly & Funkie Home For The Holidays

    7th December, 2016

    It’s Wednesday and time for another challenge over at Frilly and Funkie Challenge Blog! This is the last challenge for the year.

    This challenge is hosted by Kathy (Kathy by Design), who has chosen the theme HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS …KATHY says, “Let’s get ready to Deck the Halls by creating some home decor for the holiday season. You can make centerpieces, wreaths, banners, ornaments, wall hangings, or little vignettes …basically anything BUT a card for this challenge. If you don’t celebrate Christmas or Hanukkah or Kwanzaa, then just make some home decor with a wintry theme.”

    This final challenge theme is really fitting, as I will actually be going “home for the holidays!” With so much to do before we go, I decided to make some gift tags to adorn my gifts this year. I will be back on Saturday with a step-by-step for this gift tag.

    Thanks for stopping by. I hope you will find time to join in the challenge and pop over to Frilly and Funkie challenge blog to see the rest of the DT’s projects. All the products I used are available from The Funkie Junkie Boutique.

    The Frilly & Funkie Design Team will be back in the new year with a brand new set of challenges and I’m delighted to be joining the Design Team for another term. Wishing you all a happy holiday season.

  4. Frilly & Funkie Bountiful Harvest

    23rd November, 2016

    It’s Wednesday and time for another challenge over at Frilly and Funkie Challenge Blog!

    This challenge is hosted by Nancy (Tattered Treasures), who has chosen the theme BOUNTIFUL HARVEST …NANCY says, “Create any vintage or shabby chic project celebrating the bounty of the season in the rich hues of Autumn.”

    iGirlZoe: Bountiful Harvest
    I confess that since moving I’ve suffered from a fair amount of creative block. I think the stress, exhaustion and mind overload has left me a little creatively flat. Even with this super challenge theme, I sat for the longest time and nothing happened, so I turned to Tim Holtz’s 12 Tags of 2016 for help. Tim guides you through the techniques and before I knew it, I was covered in ink, big smile on my face…

    iGirlZoe: Bountiful Harvest
    You can see this background technique over on Tim’s blog. I’d forgotten how much I love the remnant rub resist.

    iGirlZoe: Bountiful Harvest
    I used the Tim Holtz Alphanumeric thinlits dies to create “Thankful,” die cut from cork and laid over the top of textile surface. I created the little pumpkin ticket using the mini pumpkin stencil from set number 22 and applying a little spiced marmalade and peeled paint distress marker through the stencil with a water brush. I added a remnant rub to the bottom and blended in walnut stain distress ink. SO CUTE!

  5. Festive Frame

    13th November, 2016

    It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas… I’m delighted and very humbled to be following the exceptional talents of Audrey Pettit and Emma Williams, to share a project that I’ve made for the holiday inspiration series over on Tim Holtz’s blog.

    iGirlZoe: Festive Frame
    I wanted to make a home decor piece to display in my new home over the holiday season. I’m head over heals for this years Tim Holtz holiday products, many of which I used in my project, including the new gilded remnant rubs (YES I SAID GILDED)!!

    If you haven’t seen the new holiday products, they are HERE and HERE. Once these holiday hotcakes are gone, they’re gone, so get them while you can!

    You can see the full project and tutorial HERE. I really hope it inspires you to make something during the holiday season. Be sure to pop back to Tim’s blog regularly to see more holiday inspiration to come.

    Have a great week.
