Zummer Vacation Project.....

Ahhhh.....summer vacations.  Zutter has all the supplies and tools for creating lasting memory projects from your summer fun.  Shelley Haganman, our Zutter Zister from Iowa, makes the most adorable projects - and they suit every mood and theme!  Check out her gallery from last summer for even more creating ideas.

Read further down for the latest shopping special and a chance on another Zummer giveaway!
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I love Summer and I love traveling! This year I was so excited to visit the Pike Place Market in downtown Seattle! This album is a collection of photos I took there. I wanted to stick with a "market" theme so I used Zutter's 5 x7 corrugated cardboard for the base of my album!



I used the Zutter Round-it-all to round all the corners of my pages. I painted, inked, and sanded them as well as my photos, added some masking tape and viola! I love the "raw" look that the corrugated cardboard gives my album!! You can add even more shabbiness to the corrugated board with the Distrezz-it-All - a little or a lot, depending on your preference.  I then bound my album with tie-wraps to finish the look! I love the versatility that Zutter's products offer for your creativity - not everything needs the Bind-it-All, though this would've worked just as well with owire and binding!

If you've not tried the raw look of corrugated board and the Distrezz-it-All, give it a shot.  It will add a whole new texture to your projects!
Corrugated board and the Distrezz-it-All go together like summer and sunscreen!  We think every crafter needs one of these hand-held electric distressing tools.  Toss the sandpaper and filers aside!  The Distrezz-it-All works on cardstock, chipboard, corrugated board, fabric-covered board, and more.  For a limited time, enjoy a 20% discount off the Zutter Distress-it-All.  Shop here.
Use coupon code: Zummer-DZ20A
Note, only one coupon code per transaction.  If you want to use multiple Zummer coupon offers, you must complete separate orders.

We're going to give away a Distrezz-it-All to one random winner.  But you can't leave just ANY comment.  We want to know what "distresses" you most when you are crafting.  Is it adhesive that dries too quickly?  Running out of ink in the middle of an overnight session of creativity?  From humorous to anguishing...let's hear it!  We will announce the "distrezzed" winner on Monday!

WE LOVE ZUMMER!

What distresses me when I am scrapbooking? I have an unnatural fear of running out of adhesive in the middle of my project. So I try to keep extra in a separate stash at all time. It does free me and allows creativity to flow. I love my bind-it-all

Nothing distresses me more when crafting, than to be almost finished with my creation and I get glue or ink on something or I cut crooked. DOH!

Rose said...

Ahhh, nothing urks more than having that perfect piece of decorative paper not line up straight and the adhesive worked too quickly! I use a lot of UnDu! Lovin' that corrugated look! ~ Rose

Bast said...

That project is just gorgeous! Would love to get my hands on a distress tool!

Adhesives 'distress' me. Some of the adhesive runners are impossible to refill. Running out during a project and not being able to refill them! Also some of the wet adhesives dry too fast to get them spread out enough to get the paper on my chipboard covers!

Love love love this project! tfs. What diztrezzez me the most is when DH says "can't you come and sit with me now and watch tv" and then he never says a word or falls asleep! lol, and to think, I could have been working on my project!

Robyn said...

what distresses me most is getting an inky finger on the wrong place on a finished piece.
arrrg!

Lisa Somerville said...

Love the use of the cardboard! What distresses me most, is when I accidently drop an inked image on my almost completed project!

Sammibug said...

What distresses me most when I am crafting?! Definitely has to be when my time winds around my roller on my tape gun! Grrr! So frustrating!!!

Janice said...

The most DISTRESSING thing ever was having the glue tape from ATG have glue on the wrong side and then no glue at all. Hard to work with no adhesive. 3M replaced it so we're good again. And that mini is gorgeous!

connie said...

What distresses me the most is not being able to find the embellishment or paper I know I have for a LO!

Lisa Mala6 said...

I love that mini. What fun!

What distresses me the most is when I lose my supplies. Misplace them would be more to the point. I think I need a maid for my craftroom. lol

Wende said...

What distresses me when I am scrapping? Ha, lots. I really find paper crafting relaxing, but I have been known to afix pages, elements and such upside down. So frustrating, time, materials wasted. Sometimes it benefits to not scrap to late in the evening when you are over tired. Thanks for the chance to win.

Traci said...

What I hate is when I work and work on a special card...only to find I embellished the WRONG SIDE of the card! Argh! Thanks for the opportunity to win!

Wendy said...

What distresses me most is all the smooth sanding on a chipboard album! I am waiting for someone to make me something like a dremmel without the extra power that tears my pages to sand the edges of chipboard pages once the paper has been glued down and trimmed off. Something that will go around curved edges. Sanding is the only way to get a really clean edge and there's just nothing out there yet. Thanks Zutter for all the great products!

I tend to go to crops to be able to get my scrapbooking done, and always but always forget something because of it! Instead, I have tons of paper and no photos (left them at home by mistake), or vice versa. I always annoys me, but I make a layout without the photos, or make a project, because I...."Never give up, never surrender!" LOL!

The thing that distresses me the most are tape runners that break before they are empty and there is no way to repair them so that you get to use all of the tape.--Ryansmaama

The corragated cardboard really does give a "Market" feel ~great!

I get the most dizztrezzed when my ATG goes wacky and the glue line starts sticking on the inside or the liner isn't taking up at the same speed as the dispenser side...sometimes it works perfect and other times I feel cursed! SO Dizztrezzful!

Thank you for a chanse to win the cute Dizztrssor that will help me do that in a GOOD way!

Debbi Doodles said...

My most distressing thing is when I am working in my craft room and I am constantly losing things. I just had that piece in my hand and I must have set it somewhere and now it is nowhere to be found. I swear I spend more time looking for things than actually working on a project! I always tell myself it must be my dad (passed away) coming to visit and rearrange my things. : )

Karen said...

The most distressing aspect of scrapbooking or card making is starting a project with a specific idea in mind, purchasing product for that idea, start making it and then changing my mind before I can even complete one phase of my project. Sometimes it so distressing that I don't complete the project as it was intended or have to purchase more supplies and start over again! I idea like the vacation memory book; it's perfect for those left over supplies I have!!!

octlove said...

love this cute little book…just came back from Seattle last week-end…kept wishing I could bring all those flowers from Pike Place Market home with me:)

Q: what "distresses" you most when you are crafting?

A: spending hours putting things away to keep my work space clean…only to find out that the things I put away are the same things I am pulling out again…ugh!

Lalo aka "missbliss" said...

love the look of that book, the distress kraft is super fab...
As for what distresses me the most when i'm crafting??? That would have to be unfinished projects, man it seems like i can never finish a project in one day...uhhhggg

Mary said...

What distresses me the most is running out of time when I'm really on a creative roll, lol.- Mary M

Fleursbydesign said...

Love this album so perfect for your photos!

Sheila said...

What a rustic/earthy album...definitely goes hand in hand with the topic.

Candace said...

I get "distrezzed" when I loose my creativity. Like when I work on a scrapbook page and I have no idea where to go with it. :)

The Gov. said...

LOVE the corrugated album . . .just super!
What distresses me most is an adhesive tool that does not work right and gets all gunked up!

mariella said...

what distress me when i'm scrapping is the fera to make some irreparable mistakes, especially when i'm use pens or acrilic colours!
thanks for the chance to win!!!!

shazza said...

LOVE the corrugated album. Definitely have to get some.
What distresses me is not being able to remember what I've bought so I seem to buy the same things 4 - 5 times and not buy stuff i really want/need that i dont have because im not sure if ive got it. My local scrap store actually reminds me I've already bought stuff I'm trying to rebuy now, lol. But the most annoying thing is when i ordered a Distrezz it all in from a scrapshop when they first came out & got told they're on order for 6 months, then that they're not getting them. Grrrrrrrr if I hadn't paid them I'd have got it elsewhere
Anyway it would be great to win one as that would make it a lot better but if not I'll just have to buy the next one I see
Thanks for the chance

When I'm creating something and Life interrupts, which is Ok, it is Life after all... but then when I return to whatever I was doing, I've forgotten what I doing and have to start all over again. Vicious cycle, lol.

What distresses me is when I think I have great idea, start working on it, and then don't have the supplies on hand to complete the project.
