Seed Packet Fun with Graphic 45 and Hampton Art


With the warm weather on the way, it's that time of year to start planting the garden.  I couldn't think of a better card to create that this Home Sweet Home, Graphic 45 card highlighting the seed pack stamps from Hampton Art. 

The images were colored with the Spectrum Aqua's watercolor pens.  They make blending the colors so easy and I love the finished result. 



I hope you have a safe and happy Memorial Day and I'll see you on Wednesday.

A Harvest of G45 Home Sweet Home Shadow Box


Have you seen the latest shadow boxes from Graphic 45?  They are just yummy and so is the Home Sweet Home collection that I used to decorate this piece.  I love incorporating the little mini terra cotta pots, they just blended so well especially with the fussy cut veges. 

 
 
One of the other new G45 staples I used on this piece was the metal claw feet.  They are just stunning and add so much to any project. 
 
 
 
 
 
Now if you want to continue to be inspired and I'm sure you do, head over to the Graphic 45 blog and see Tati Scraps Recipe Book...is adorable.

Home Sweet Home with Graphic 45


With the weather turning pretty I've been able to get out in my garden more and more.  I'm starting to see flowers pop up and new spring growth emerge from the ground and I love it.  Home Sweet Home Collection from Graphic 45 embodies that garden fresh feel.

This card has layer upon layers and truly comes to life with all the bright colored patterned paper.  I've also stitched around the card with my sewing machine giving it another layer of homemade pop.
