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.

May Arts and Graphic 45 Blog Hop Day 3: Easter Gift/Candy Box

 

This week Graphic 45 and May Art Ribbon have teamed up for a blog hop full of inspirational projects and prizes.

Using a Graphic 45 Matchbook Box, I created a fun Easter box for candy. The March sheets of Children’s Hour provided beautiful images to create a layered scene. I love layering multiple bits of fussy cuts of the same image to add a 3-D effect to my little scene. The scene is inspired by traditional Easter activities of children sitting in the grass after Easter egg hunting. Beautiful May Art ribbons add a festive effect and their unique leaf ribbon is so perfect for surrounding the birds nest.

Graphic 45 Cityscapes Mini Album

Happy Thursday! Today I have an album to share and as you know, I love making mini albums and I knew Cityscapes would make the perfect album to store photos of my family’s travels. Using a simple album page style, I was able to make the most of this gorgeous paper to frame the photos that will go in it. When I saw the new Graphic 45 Policy Envelopes I knew how fantastic they would coordinate with my album. They added the perfect pockets for our travel mementos and additional space for more photos and journaling tags. I just slit the bottoms open to attach to my album binding and they fit my album like they were made for it and came already perfectly coordinated!

Tip: A great way to add charms to the spine of your album is to use a Graphic 45 Ornate Label Holder. Punch a hole in the pull towards the edge with a heavy duty hole punch. Add a chain and some charms with some jump rings.
Tip: Don’t have the perfect matching charms? Make some by fussy cutting your favorite images from your design paper. Back them with cardstock or another fussy cut image that matches the shape to make it sturdier. Similar to what I did with the stamps on my album spine. Punch a hole in the corner and add a jump ring!

A Christmas Carol Pop-Up Matchbook Gift Box

The Christmas spirit is among us this time of year and I was inspired to make a Christmas themed version of my pop up matchbook box. I love giving gift cards and a perfect way to personalize a typically non-personal gift, is with a thoughtful and handmade presentation. I absolutely love the way it turned out using Graphic 45’s Christmas Carol Collection and the bells at the top give it a fun festive jingle as you open it!
Tip 1: Fussy cut out your favorite images and start layering them with foam adhesive to create a dimensional cluster.
Tip 2: Curl the edges of some fussy cuts to add even more visual interest and dimension.
Check out my video for a tutorial on how to make your own pop-up gift box :)

Graphic 45 Life Planner

Good morning! Today I am happy to share my newest organizational tool! The year is coming to a close (way too fast!)and soon we will be starting on our New Year’s resolutions. I thought I would get a head start on mine: organization! I have turned Graphic 45’s Mixed Media Album into my new daily-life planner. I’ve decorated it with my all-time favorite collection, Steampunk Debutante, on the cover and base pages. With the help of Time to Flourish 8×8 calendar pages, and my custom weekly and daily inserts, I am all set to plan my days in style. Each month I will plan with a new gorgeous collection to match my mood and it will be a real pleasure to keep track of all my to-do’s, tasks and deadlines! If you’d like to plan in Graphic 45 style too, download and enjoy my free weekly and daily planner printables at the end of this post. I have a walk-through video of how I organized it and how I will use it, along with a brief tutorial on how to use my printables as your own planner inserts.

I love how with this planner, I can keep it as a keepsake of what my family and I did. I can even add pictures onto and between the pages using pocket pages sleeves!
If you would like to make your own version of a planner check out my free insert below. I have the inserts for daily and weekly inserts in the vintage style I used for my planner. It has a parchment like coloring, which you can add more ink to the edges. There is also some watermarks of vintage graphics faintly showing through. For those who don’t want to  use as much toner/ink, I have the same inserts available with plain white backgrounds. For the weekly, you have the option of starting your week on Monday and having your Friday and weekend on one page (like I have), or you can choose to start your weekly on Sunday on through Saturday.
Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you are inspired to make your own planner!

Halloween Brag Book and Tutorial using Graphic 45 Rare Oddities

Graphic 45 outdid themselves with the Rare Oddities Collection. It has one of my all-time favorite patterns- paisley, along with skulls and potions and amazing colors! Since Halloween is fast approaching I felt the desire to make some fun pieces to get my home looking festively spooky.  Since I love to take pictures of my kids in their costumes but don’t take a lot, I created this tri-fold brag book that will hold just enough photos and can be stood up and displayed as a Halloween décor piece year after year, as well. I love double duty projects! I hope you check out the tutorial I put together for you and try one out for yourself. Change up the collection and it’s perfect for any occasion and is so quick to put together that they make great gifts, too!

Gilded Lily Boxed Album using G45 Mixed Media Box

Happy Friday! Today I have a boxed album to share and a tutorial to go along with it!
I love making boxed
mini albums and Graphic 45’s Mixed Media boxes make it so easy to whip up a
quick album base with just a few alterations. I used the Gilded Lily Collection
to make a fancy and feminine album perfect for adding my daughter’s dance
pictures or birthday pictures. If you’re looking to try one for yourself then
grab a Mixed Media Box and I’ll share with you how to make your own boxed mini
album base ready for decorating in a jiffy!
Tip: Mixed Media
boxes come in Ivory, Kraft and Black. Want a different color, paint it! You
don’t need to paint the whole thing if you’re adding paper, so just paint the
edges that will show. I especially like metallic paint like gold to match the
Christmas Carol Collection or deep bronze for Steampunk Debutante.

World’s Fair Pop Up Gift Card Box

Hi, all! I have fallen in love…again! Meet my new love- the Graphic 45 Altered Art Matchbook Box. I am terrible at buying gifts, so I am mainly a money or gift card giver and I wanted a fun new way of presenting a small gift, like a gift card or similar. So, in walks the new love of my life and, boy, did we had a blast together! Throw in some World’s Fair paper and a fun pop-up twist when the recipient opens the box, and our time together was super fun!

Tip: Sometimes it’s hard to part with a handmade card for fear of its fate once given away, but the Altered Matchbook Box is a gift in itself that the recipient can use after the gift card is gone: for holding small items or re-gift it to keep the gift giving going (no shame in that). Your hard work and time will not be wasted with this fun gift box.

Graphic 45 Christmas Carol Pop Up Shadow Box

 

Hey, all! I have a super fun project to share with you all today! It’ll be Christmas in no time and I am really bad at preparing, so I am really excited that I made this awesome (if I do say so myself) decor piece.
I love all of Graphic
45’s Christmas collections and this new one is no exception! I wanted to make a fun
home décor project to display and enjoy throughout the holiday season and I wanted it to be dimensional. But being practical, I thought about how I would store it
for the other 11 months out of the year. The idea came upon me when I spied one
of my kids pop-up books- to create a 3D scene inside a shadow box that, once
opened, images would pop-up and out and then tuck back in and look like a book
when it was time to get stored, so I grabbed a Graphic 45 Book Box and the
Christmas Carol papers and started fussy cutting my favorite images and gluing
them down. Other than the ribbon and metal, all the decorations are from the
paper! That’s the beauty of Graphic 45- the paper alone can make the most
gorgeous and fun creations!
