World’s Fair Card

Happy Monday I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend :) It has been pretty gloomy here, so I am happy to share my bright and cheerful card today to help chase away the gloom.

I am not usually a fan of orange, but I can’t seem to get enough of the fun, colorful and inspirational vibe of World’s Fair! I thought I would make a card, so that when a friend needed a pick me up, I would have the perfect card at the ready. I embraced the orange and even threw on a large orange flower for good measure. I’m in love!

Tip: Sometimes it’s fun and striking to cluster elements in one concentrated area leaving a lot of “white space” on the rest of the card.

Enchanting Boxed Mini Album

I had made a boxed album base using my Boxed Album Cover and Stand Tutorial a while back and wasn’t sure where I wanted to go with it. The beautiful jewel tones of Enchanted Forest were perfect for my ‘royal’ boxed album. I love adding feet to really make it look like a trinket box from the outside, so it’s a fun surprise to find a mini album inside to store memories in photographs. The ATC Policy envelopes make the perfect storage for ticket stubs, extra photos, notes or any other small memorabilia you may want to add.

Altered Mixed Media Journal with Graphic 45′s Once Upon A Springtime

 

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter! Mine was filled with food and family. My children enjoyed an Easter Egg Hunt courtesy of Grandma Easter Bunny. My daughter found the golden egg, which was fitting since hunting eggs is her favorite game all year round, lol!

The Once Upon a Springtime Collection was the first Graphic 45 collection that I discovered and remains my all-time favorite! I love it so much that I hoarded it forever, but I have finally let myself have fun and this journal is the result. As one of my first real forays into a full-on mixed media project, I altered this premade journal with gesso, gelatos, stencils, paste and, of course, fussy cuts from Once Upon a Springtime. I absolutely love how it turned out and I hope you all do, too! If you are a beginner with mixed media like me, follow along with me and my process tutorial on how I made this project.
