Christmas is right around the corner with Graphic 45


It may not seem like it, but now is the season to start those Christmas cards and projects.  Graphic 45 makes that super easy with their latest collection release " Twas the Night Before Christmas".  Of course it brings that vintage flair that G45 is known for to all of your projects. 
Today is a card I created for Graphic 45 and it full of lots of layers.  I fussy cut out the holly leaves and then layered them back up with foam tape for a lot of dimension. 

I always like to sew with a sewing machine around my cards...I think it just gives that extra touch of detail and another layer of interest. 

Don't forget to include decoration on the interior of your cards.  It's just as important for the receiver to be thrilled when they open the card as when they open the envelope. 

Be sure to hop over to Graphic 45's Blog today and see more beautiful projects created by the design team using "Twas the Night Before Christmas"  and I'll see you on Friday.

Keep Calm and Wine On with Hampton Art

I love all the Keep Calm slogans and this one is super cute from Hampton Art.  I paired it up with a background stamp of wine and liquor bottles that was stamped in a burgundy ink. 

I really like the wine glasses that create charms on the ribbon...and of course I had to highlight with ink so it looks like the wine is still sitting in the glass.

Please enjoy today’s featured designers from Graphic 45 Team and don’t forget to leave em a little comment love then visit the Graphic 45 blog to check out the details on how you can be entered to win a fabulous prize!

Here is my creation for the hop.  

Everybody needs a wallet when they start out on a journey, so of course when I saw the Come Away with Me Collection I knew I wanted to make a paper wallet to hold pictures and keepsakes from a trip.  Though it might not hold up for the actual adventure itself, this is a perfect little keepsake to create to remember all those moments.  The EZ Runner Adhesive made it easy to attach the three base layers that create the core of the wallet.  The front is adorned with Graphic 45 embellishments that pop off the page using the dimension foam squares.  I just layered several of the dots together if I wanted it a bit thicker…but having the thin gave me a lot of room to play with depth. 





Here is a picture of all the supplies I used on this project.

An Eriee Tale with Graphic 45

I love those days when I get to share my projects with everyone over on the Graphic 45 Blog.  We had a color challenge this month: feature three Graphic 45 Coordinations colors to make a custom  palette. I used the Photogenic, Bordeaux, and the Green Moss, using the  the Halloween Collection : An Eerie Tale .  I felt that gave a different Halloween mix.   I really like the featured scene that I used, a beautiful maiden sitting and eating with a creepy but yet elegant at the same time, LOL. 
Be sure to hop over to the Blog today and see some other amazing color combos from Annette and Keri. 

 I think it's just as important to make the inside of your card as beautiful as the a secret little gift to the recipient.
