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. 

Maya Road and Xyron together again

Today I'd love to share a pillow box I created for Xyron using some of Maya Roads embellishments and Graphic 45's Botanical Tea Collection  I added just a bit of distress ink to my Maya Road burlap flower to darken the color and make it blend with the paper a bit better. 

The buttons were run through my 5" Creative Station and then covered with paper, sanded and inked to make personalized matching embellishments.  Even the cute raffia is from Maya Roads that I ran through the buttons and it really just pulls everything together. 

Here is a complete list of products used on this project, so you are sure to be able to create your own.

Sunny Days With Heartfelt Creations

 I love Wednesdays because that means it's a day I can share my latest creations for Heartfelt Creations.  Today's card is one I made using the Cut, Mat and Create paper collection along with some handmade flowers that Heartfelt is known for.  It always amazes me how you can take a pretty simple card and add some handmade flowers and it takes it to an out of this world card...LOVE IT!!!!
Be sure to hop over to the Heartfelt Blog and see more creations by the rest of the design team along with complete directions and supply lists for each of the projects.

3Birds and Xyron on 24-Hour Craft Day on HSN July 23rd.

HSN BIG CRAFT DAY is coming up on the 23rd of this month and you're going to want to turn in to see some amazing creations from 3Birds and Xyron.  Plus I have a feeling there will be some deals to be had that day.  So it's a win, win. 

For this card I used the following goodies and I will say all of 3Birds collections made this so easy to put together.
