Jennifer Van Pelt's Zentangle Blog »

Jennifer Van Pelt's Zentangle Blog bio picture
  • My name is Jennifer Van Pelt, CZT welcome to my Zentangle® blog. I started tangling at the end of Sept. 2010 and was hooked from my 1st class! This blog will be a place where I share my Zentangle experiences, ZIA's - Zentangle Inspired Art, Zentangle patterns that I have created, upcoming Zentangle classes or places where I will be sharing Zentangle and anything else I come up with that is Zentangle related!

    I really enjoy sharing Zentangle with people and seeing those 'ah ha' moments when people take a step back and look at what they are creating and realize that they are making something stroke at a time! I teach at my store, The Stamp Addict, in people's homes, corporate office settings, churches, parties (adult, teen & children) plus at a variety of other settings. Zentangle fits in everywhere! I have my pens and will travel to teach, just contact me and we can make it happen!

Memory Box/Poppystamps Blog Hop!

Hello Everyone!

I know it has been a little while since I have posted here but I am using this Blog Hop as an opportunity to change that fact and am letting you all know that I am going to be switching up my blog to be a more personal one, including not only my Zentangle art, classes and information but now I plan on sharing all of my other papercrafting endeavors as well as more personal stuff about my life as a mom and wife and woman. I hope you enjoy the upcoming changes.

Let’s start with this Blog Hop that I am participating in as a member of the Memory Box Design Team. Dave Brethauer, the owner of Memory Box and Poppystamps has a new venture called Birch Press Design featuring letterpress, laser cut and printed card designs as well as beautiful products for your home. What is even better…. they are selecting winners of prizes for those who comment on our blogposts…so make sure to leave a comment…you have until Dec. 10th to comment to be entered for the prizes!

So with this joint Blog Hop between the Memory Box and Poppystamps Design Teams we are showcasing the products and using them to make Holiday gift Tags and Treats! If you have been hopping along with us today you may have arrived here from MICHELLE HENDERSON’S Blog. What fun! I made a gift tag that can be used for any winter themed party, I do hope you like it!

For this tag I used a medium blue shimmer cardstock as my background color then some holographic paper to cut out the dies in which really made them pop! I used the Frosty Border Die and the Hanging Ornaments Die. I edged the top and bottom of the blue cardstock piece with Glitter tape then I cut the Frosty Border in two pieces and snipped a little extra piece off and used the 2 separated pieces for the top and bottom of my tag. I ‘hung’ the Hanging Ornaments from the top piece of the border then attached the entire piece to a larger silver piece of cardstock. I added a ribbon on the top of the tag and Voila…a beautiful tag perfect for adding to any large box or bottle of wine!

Ok now that you have seen what I have created for the hop….make sure to leave a comment on my blog to be entered for the prize (today’s prize is a tea towel from Birch Press Design – winners choice) then hop onto the next stop at Rudlis / Irena Kowalczyk’s page.

If you have missed any stops along the way here is the list:
