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.

Hampton Art

This is a card I created for Hampton Art using the Graphic 45 By the Sea collection with coordinating stamps.  The seashells have all be embossed so they give a great background for the card.  The mermaid was stamped, colored and then fussy cut out. 
I'll see you Wednesday with a great Blog Hop for Graphic 45!!!!!
