Zoe Australiasian Blog Hop


Welcome to our Special Australasian Close to My Heart Blog Hop featuring Zoe. We have all been creating with the brand NEW Zoe Products that have been released in August before the new Catalogue goes live 1st September. If you have arrived here from Patricia Manhire - Patricia Manhire's Creative Corner then you are in the right place. If you landed here another way, please join in by following the link at the end of this post. Follow the links, check out all the amazing ideas and eventually you'll come right back here to where you started.

I started with the Workshops on the Go® Zoe Scrapbooking Kit  (WOTG). 
I created the Double-Page Layout at our recent Consultant Fun Day but I wanted to make it special and add something of interest to our Blog Hop especially for Zoe. 





So I decided to create a Zoe Flip Flap, to fit MORE photos on the page. Using the Memory Protectors™ Flip Flaps™ 12" Assortment I decided to create an 8 inch "page" to sit over the top of my Zoe WOTG Right hand side page. I used off cuts from the WOTG pages and created a similar designed layout to what was to lay underneath. 

To decorate it I used the line stamp from the Workshops on the Go® Zoe Scrapbooking Kit  (WOTG) to create the Journalling box and I decorated this flippy flappy page with Zoe Complements. My lines aren't that straight but I have learned that sometimes quirky is interesting. The title Sticker "This is what I've been up to" was matted in scrap 12" X 12" White Daisy Cardstock to ensure it stood out on the grey grid background. I also used the Duck® Easy Stick™ Adhesive (which is clear) to adhere the vellum camera, as the Ez Dots is a bit blue so sometimes you can see through the vellum using that form of adhesive. 


This is my 8 inch page with the same 3 inch blue strip of B&T paper and the same Coral Shimmer Trim that is currently only available to purchase within the Zoe Workshop on the Go pack. (Coral Shimmer Trim will be available to purchase individually from 1st September). 

The Zoe Complements are a great addition and the new format of complements with Stickers, Vellum diecuts and Kraft diecuts makes this an awesome little set with such versatility. 


Once I had completed my Zoe Flip Flap. I adhered the Memory Protectors™ Flip Flaps™ 12"x8" to the top of my Memory Protectors™ Top Load pages. I did move the photo squares up a little bit higher so the flip flap sat better without any "bits" showing up underneath (as you can see in the below photo compared with the original double page spread). I'm sorry I can't take a better photo of my flip flap, its a bit hard to show the flipping, without getting shadowing. I'd love to be able to show everyone in person because its a lot more effective. 


All the instructions for the Zoe Workshop on the Go are in the pack so its really easy to make up the page. Then use any leftovers with additional paper from a Zoe Paper Packet to create your own Flip Flap Album page addition. Memory Protectors™ Flip Flaps™ 12" come in a variety of widths and sizes in that Assortment pack



I also wanted to show you this "Fun" card that I made for our Consultant Fun Day 10 fold swap. For a bit of extra inspiration. I used the stamp set from the Workshops on the Go® Zoe Scrapbooking Kit .

My sister consultant Alicia Lawrence gave me permission to share her masterpiece card with you as well. She made 10 of these beautiful patchwork Zoe cards for our Monthly 10 fold swap. Such a great card and its using this months Stamp of the Month Framed – August 2015 Stamp of the Month 

Thanks Alicia for being so generous in your sharing and creation!! I'm so glad I got to have your card as a sample for my workshops. 

Thanks so much for dropping by to check out my latest project (with a few extra's thrown in), I hope you get Inspired and fall in love with Zoe like we all have. I'm really interested to hear what you think about it, so I'd love you to leave a comment before heading off to the next stop on our Special Zoe Australasian Blog Hop is 
Anne - Mummy you made this?

  Come back to see me again soon.
