April Showers...Graphic 45 Tag

April Showers bring May flowers, but lucky you I've got some April flowers to share with you today.  This tag is from the Graphic 45's collection " Time to Flourish" and it's the April pages.  This tag is layered with their papers, fussy cutting, chipboard, staples, flowers and even some handmade paper pleated ruffles. Lots of little details help create this beautiful spring tag.

 
 
Ginger has some beautiful "Home Sweet Home" tags on the Graphic 45 blog today too...so be sure to go see what she has in store for you.

Flower Cart Fun with Graphic 45


 
Today's project is one that takes one of Graphic 45 ATC Boxes and makes it into something totally new...a flower cart.  I used the "Time to Flourish" collection from Graphic 45, the August pages.  I just love the bright cheery sunflowers and thought they would look great on the side of the flower cart. 
 
This was fairly easy to make and you can find complete step by step directions on Snapguide.
 
 

 
Here a various views and close ups of the cart

Everyday Hero New Release from Heartfelt Creations

 
Do you have an unsung hero in your life?  Your champion may never have a medal pinned to his or her chest, but you can demonstrate your gratitude with the Everyday Heroes Collection from Heartfelt Creations.  These epic stamps, dies and papers salute the extraordinary "ordinary people" who inspire us as they live their daily lives with honor and integrity. Greys, teals, khakis, creams and browns have been blended with distressed newsprint, vintage maps, globes, sailing ships, timepieces, combat boots, stripes, dots and flourishes to create a rugged, paper collection that is timeless in its appeal.  Six deeply etched cling stamp sets featuring detailed collages, inspiring sentiments and unique circular elements mesh perfectly with the paper collection and matching set of dies.  Let's sing the praises of the unsung heroes in our lives with the Everyday Heroes Collection from Heartfelt Creations!

Happy Easter with Graphic 45


Happy Easter!  Today is a day that welcomes new beginnings in so many ways.  For me it's the day that Christ rose from the grave to give each of us a new birth in his love.  It's also a day to celebrate spring, flowers blooming, new growth coming out and new little babies in nature being born...it's just a lovely time of year and day to celebrate. 

Today I'm sharing a card duo I created for Graphic 45 that celebrates the springtime season.  The cards use the Sweet Sentiments collection and I think you can see though they coordinate, you can also get very different looks from one collection. 

Please see all the different pictures of the card duo below and also be sure to head over to the Graphic 45 blog and see Donna's beautiful egg decorations...you'll be in awe!!!  Happy Easter to everyone and I hope you all have a beautiful day.

An Easter Basket with Heartfelt Creations


Today is Wednesday so it's time for some Heartfelt Creations goodness and what could be better than this miniature Easter basket adorned with Heartfelt.  I just got a Cricut Air and have starting playing around with it and this little basket is one of the cuts it will make.  I can see making these as favors for a dinner party.  The hardest part about this project was not eating the chocolate eggs I used in the picture, LOL.

Graphic 45 Design Team Audition 2015

 
I have had the most amazing year being able to serve on the 2014-2015 Graphic 45 Design Team.  I can't rave enough about how much I have grown as an artist, made some new friends/team members, been inspired by G45's designs and have loved, loved and I mean loved digging in those HUGE boxes of Graphic 45 goodness.  I just can't tell you how many goose bumps I get when I see those boxes laying at my door.  This company is truly one of the top notch in the industry to work with and I've been very blessed to do so for the past year. 
 
I want to thank everyone....of course HUGE THANKS goes out to Graphic 45 and the entire family of G45 for allowing me to create, my teamies...it's one of the best groups in the world to work with, and of course all of the Graphic 45 followers and lovers.  Your kind comments and posts have really encouraged me...so THANK YOU. 
 
So it's that time to throw my name back in the hat for a return year of design with Graphic 45.   My fingers are crossed and if it helps I'll cross my toes and eyes heck throw in my legs and arms, LOL.  So please take a moment to see some of my projects from the past year and a recap video at the end.
