I can't stop!!!

This set is too cute, I honestly can't stop creating with it :) I made this card as I was attempting to put the set away!!! Again this is Lizzie Anne Designs cute Spooked set. I used the glue pad for the haunted house and sprinkled on Orange glitter. The background is embossed with amazing glaze and the ribbon is May Arts. I also used the Marvy Giga scalloped oval. I have enjoyed playing with this set so much it's going to be hard to put it away (as I found today!). Now I need to talk myself into parting with these cards. I like to keep my creations, I have such a hard time letting them go. I only wish my camera could show you the cards in their true colours, these photographs don't do them much justice :?

Sparkly Spooked!

This is yet again made with the fabulous Lizzie Anne Designs Spooked set. I'm in love with it!!! I don't even send Halloween cards normally but I think I should start! The backing paper is from the glitter stack, the ribbons are Doodlebug and the sparkly brads are Making Memories. I used the Marvy Mega Circle Punch for the moon. The bats are embossed with Stamp-n Stuff's Marcasite glitter and then raised on pop dots. I'm so pleased with how it turned out.

I'm hooked on Spooked!

I had a lot of fun making this card. I love Lizzie Anne Design's 'In the background' set, I can see this becoming a favourite of mine, obviously behind so swirly! The paper ribbon on this card is Doodlebug, the fringed black is perfect for this card. I sparkled the pumpkins (of course!).
I don't often make Halloween cards, it's a lot of FUN!

My Girls

These are my 2 very beautiful girls. They play together really well. This is a few years ago now. The youngest one, Chloe (6), is a definite Mini-Me and Lynzee my 8 year old is a Mini-Daddy. It's crazy how they are SO much like us!!! Lynzee is very laid back which mixes nicely with Chloe's non-stop fidgeting :) This page has been on the Lizzie Anne Designs website for a few months now, it was the first few sets that I owned, I now own a LOT more. Their stamps are very addictive!

Never Too Many Daisies!

Oh how I love Lizzie Anne Designs Blissful Blossoms set. I was tickled pink when I found the flower paper (called lipstick flower by Ki memories). What a PERFECT match! I made this card for my sisters birthday (which is today) but I'm having a hard time letting it go. The Happy Birthday stamp is from their Little Bits Happy Birthday set. YUMMY!

Oh The Daisies!!!

Okay so now I get to play with Daisies, my most favourite flower in the world. I made this card at a monthly scrapbook night that I have with a bunch of the greatest girlfriends anyone could wish for. I wasn't the only one at the table making cards either, there were 3 of us! Scrapbooking night is slowly turning into card making night tee-hee! This card was made with Lizzie Anne Designs Blissful Blossoms set. The center of the daisies are glittery HAS to have glitter!


I am a great lover of Lizzie Anne Designs stamps as you will soon find out. I am having a lot of fun playing with their Spooked set. Of course I have a lot of fun playing with glitter too! This is my youngest daughter, Chloe, when she was 4 years old. The header is using Pupcat Alpha Bits from Lizzie Anne designs and if you look closely you may see their So Swirly set in the background. LOVE IT!

A little bit about me...

Hello there, my name is Zena, most people call me Zee. I am British and have been in America since 1998. I have 2 beautiful daughters Lynzee and Chloe, very much into Dragons, fairies and princesses. We are all VERY girly! The only male influence in our house is my husband and my cat. They are quite outnumbered!!! Anyone who knows me knows I love glitter. In fact I love anything that sparkles. I used to be a demonstrator for Stampin Up and enjoy making cards. I then found scrapbooking when I met Tricia (Lizzie of Lizzie Anne Designs) and her sister Tanya at their store so my card making was put on hold for a while. Lizzie Anne Designs has inspired me to begin card making again and to use stamps in my scrapbooks. I have been a proud employee of Lizzie Anne Designs from the very beginning. I love being involved in such a creative and fabulous company. I am also honored to be asked to become part of the Elite Lizzie Anne Designs design team. This is my first Blog, and so my journey begins…
