Graphic 45 - Cafe Parisian - Hexagon Box

Hello dear visitors!

Café Parisian paper line is the best for making favor boxes, in my opinion. All the cut outs that you can get from the paper are perfect for embellishing birthday themed projects, with the sweet treats, cookies and pastries.

I would like to share a hexagon box (which I created from chipboard a while ago), embellished with the beautiful Café Parisian paper. The link to my old video tutorial for creating the box base may be found here (Part 1, Part 2), and in the meanwhile I hope you will enjoy seeing the pictures of the final result.

A "Happy Birthday" Card with IAR Flowers and Prima Paper

Hello dear all!

Today I am here with a card, created with the I Am Roses flowers and some Prima papers from the "Love Clippings" collection.

I've used the following IAR flowers:
R22-518 - Pale Pink Variegated Puffy Paper Flowers
S3 - 426 - Mixed Pastel Cherry Blossoms
R3 - 98 - Salmon Red Roses

The largest cream flower is handmade. I've made a quick envelope out of craft wrapping paper, to put the card inside.

Don't forget about IAR May Challenge and submit your works here. The prizes are waiting for the winners.

Have a great day!

A Double Layout with the Graphic 45 Cityscapes Collection

Hello dear visitors!

I am back-sharing a few projects which I created earlier and one of them is a double layout for the Graphic 45 design team. I've used the papers from the Cityscapes collection and a few vintage photos of London.

In scrapbooking, as in any other field of arts and crafts and in life in general, there are things that we don’t feel quite comfortable to do, since they seem just “not our cup of tea”, something which leads us away from the comfort zone to which all of us are so used too.

During the DT term on the Graphic 45 team I have already been challenged a few times to leave that comfort zone and create something new. I have never created layouts, and for this month our assignment was to create not a single, but a double layout!

I've framed both of the pages in the Ribba Frames from IKEA and want to mount them on a wall somewhere in the house, just need to decide where exactly :)

Here is the list of the Graphic 45 products used:
Cityscapes 12X12 Pad
Cityscapes Decorative Chipboard
Cityscapes Journaling Chipboard
Cityscapes 6x6 Patterns & Solids
Metal Clock Keys
Ornate Metal Key Holes

ATCs with "Mr. and Mrs. Back" by Studio 75

Hello dear all!

Wanted to share a series of the Artist Trading Cards, created with the Studio 75 papers from the "Mr. & Mrs. Black" collection.

I love the projects in this 'a-la-vintage' style more than the ones with the flowers, the vintage style really inspires me and I hope you will find some inspiration in my today's post too.

To finish the cards off, besides the Studio 75 papers I've used some stamps from different sets by Tim Holtz and Stampers Anonymous. I think these worked together just perfect.

Find the links to the papers below:

Graphic 45 - Vintage Hollywood - Artist Trading Cards

Hello there!

I have been creating quite a lot of the Artist Trading Cards recently and I think I will never be tired or bored with making them. This is a true obsession once you begin. On the limited space you can still arrange as many details as you want.

Graphic 45 papers have always been known for their outstanding variety of and richness of characters, so cutting them out for the ATCs is just perfect.

Today I would like to share 4 of my ATCs, which were created with the “Vintage Hollywood” collection. 

On the picture below you can see an example of the little size of the cut out flowers which I used, as well as how many pieces (more or less) each one of the cards includes.

Take your favorite Graphic 45 papers out and start to create!
