Vintage Holiday Card with Guest Designer Dana Tatar

Hi Zeus and Zoe fans! Former design team member Dana here today sharing a Christmas card that I created with the Zeus and Zoe Green with Envy Embellishment Kit. You can find similar kits HERE. I layered pieces of vintage newspaper and sheet music and a vintage postcard onto an embossed card base. I loved the image on the postcard and decided to play up the green and purple color palette for a non-traditional holiday card.

I topped my festive embellishment cluster with a stamped sentiment that I cut from a vintage book page. I just love the look of aged paper!

I finished my card with some decorative chipboard and a vintage inspired key.

Here is a peek of the gorgeous Green with Envy Kit! If you're looking for something specific, or have a favorite color that you like to work with, contact Marivic and she'll put together a kit personalized to your specific tastes and needs!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I wish you and yours all the best this holiday season!

Beautiful ~Back frame canvas

Hi this is CHARLIE  and this is my project for this christmas at zeus and zoe ,I was in the middle of November when I started to create  this christmas themed glittered canvas , I was struck by lightning when I did  this , it's like Magic on Paints , everything is special and glittery !! I was wondering how I did this !! Nah but sorry guys didn't Do any tutorial for this one ..I was so busy and tired to do a tute but its seems it turns this project amazing !! The good thing about this  is that it's not made by a true canvas this one is Chipboard .. (you see when you buy a frame you'll have a free chipboard or plastic to the back to lock your photos ,  and then I spotted the chipboard will work big on paper craft and nice to work with Zeus and Zoe Kits ..
This time I make sure everything is glittery ,so I added lots of glitter and popping colors)!!!

So The layers are all made using scrap magazine papers and book pages and then I added gesso .. I used a lot of fabric from the kit as well as the gorgeous flower packs ..Paint's are from conda and Dixon ,for the mist I just used Lindy's ... So Lovely it takes me 2 hrs to work on this piece I hope you guys Like it !!

Pure Heart~ Mixed Media Collage

Hello my Crafty Friends!

Marivic has been so gracious enough to have me stay on an extra two months so I will be with you all until January. (doing the happy dance).

As you all know I have been on a new creative journey of finding my inner "creative" self.  And I wanted to share with you a mixed media collage I created the first day of my journey ( about a month ago).  I felt like I had a lot of clutter in my life and I needed to get clear so creating this piece was so therapeutic for me and I found my freedom.  I wanted my collage to depict exactly how I felt at the time of creation.  So looking left to right you can see that all of the clutter becomes clean and pure.  Then I included one of my favorite scriptures. "Create in me a pure heart".  I hope you all love this as much as I do!

thank you for sharing your Friday with me :)

Introducing our New DT Members

Hi everyone! I hope you're all doing great! I want to introduce you to our new DT members...I will have another DT Call in March. I had been so busy the past few months and hopefully by early next year when things slow down a bit, I'll be able to chat with you more...

Please help me welcome our new Designers:

DT Coordinator/Designer


Hello my fellow scrappers!  My name is Monica Lowrance.
I'm so excited to be here!!  I live in Hot Springs National Park, Arkansas. I have a 15 year old son, David and our crazy pug George.  It can get super fun crazy. I’ve been scrapping for many years. I fell in love with it. I love creating. As the years have passed I’ve seen so many neat and amazing things. I’ve enjoyed learning and growing.
I have a love for flowers, chippies and beautiful papers.  Actually I love all things connected with scrapping!  It was so much fun to serve on The Paper Mixing Bowl. I currently serve at Paper Temptress, 3RD Eye, SOUS-Die Cut team and now here. I’ve been published in Scrap N’ Art Magazine.  I love trying new techniques and mediums.  Mixed Media intrigues me.
I look forward to getting to know you all and working with you. I can’t wait to see your wonderful projects. I am so excited at the chance to work alongside this talented team.
Feel free to stop by my blog and say hi:



Hello there! My name is Lee.  I really am a stay at home mom that tries to stay in my craft room as much as I can, except when I am forced to emerge for shopping, cooking or cleaning. I am married to an army pilot and have traveled to many places with him and our two children. I have been scrapbooking for 13 years, but have taken many long breaks from my beloved hobby due to deployments and moving around the country.


Hello there! My name is Lizzy Hill & I’m an Aussie who lives just above Sydney on the Central Coast. I have 2 grown up sons & 1 grandbaby, plus a pile of ‘steps’….a great assortment of scrappy subjects! I’ve been scrapping about 5 years…& 2014 is going to be a busy year for me – which is just fine! I’m on a few teams, including Once Upon A…Sketch, Scrap365 Magazine, LESSology & Purple Pumpkin.
As you can see from that lot, I’m a bit of an eclectic scrapper – I THINK my style is rather bold…I LOVE challenges & challenging myself & I’ll have a go at anything scrappy wise – on or off the page. Even PL [Project Life] isn’t ‘safe’ from me!
Lately, I’ve been drawn to badges, mists & masking, & using Liquid Pearls. I usually journal on my pages - mostly by hand. I have an absolute all-encompassing loooove for this Scrappy World we inhabit, & adore popping by & leaving comments. I have a strong belief in supporting & sharing scrappy ideas…so I hope you gain something from checking out my projects here on Zeus & Zoe….cos Marivic has THE most gorgeous Etsy Shop in the world!!!!!


Hi! I’m Kristie, and I am a scrapaholic!  I have loved being creative since I was a young girl. I have always loved to alter things and when I was a child I spent a lot of time looking for ways to make new things out of old things. I am married to David, the love of my life, and we have four children. Chris who is 29, Megan who is 16, and the twins, Hunter and Jared who are 13. We also share our home with two fur babies. I love ink and paint and distressing things, so you will always see a little of each of those in my projects. I love all things vintage, the shabbier the better, but what girl can live without a little sparkle? Not me! I love to add a little glitter too!  I am excited to be asked to design for Zues and Zoe, and I hope that I can inspire you to create beautiful projects too!

Welcome ladies and thank you for joining our design team. You will see their starting January!

And of course we still have our Charlie as our educator and Madame Ro!!

Thanks for stopping by and I really hope to see you soon...

"Inspire"~ Mixed Media Journal Page

Hello friends!

I have another art journal page to share with you. Lately I have been obsessed with hearts. I've noticed my last few projects have had some form of hearts somewhere on it.  I've been doing a lot of abstract type of art as well. When I created this page I was feeling very inspired and very loved. I used a chipboard word that displays "inspired" and I also used a Tim Hotlz medal trinket that says "know in your heart that you are loved".  and again loving the vibrancy in the colors. 

Hope you are inspired by my project.
