What’s in My Head Layout with Graphic 45

Hi dear crafty friends! Today I want to share What’s in My Head Layout with Graphic 45 papers I created. I almost never create pages with my own photos but this funky layout has not only a photo of my face but also some really fun embellishments that I added to it.     What’s in My Head Layout with Graphic 45 The theme of this page was something about us. I had to think a lot about how to show all the things that fill my head and I came up with this whimsical way.  First I took a black and white photo of me and cut out my head like an opening lid. I added lots of different pieces on the page to show all the thoughts and ideas that are “poring” out of my head.  Then I cut all the images from different Graphic 45 papers and also added a title with some letter stickers. A creative …

Hi dear crafty friends! Today I’m sharing on 12 Cards of Christmas: Cards in 60 seconds! Yes it is possible to create a card in 60 seconds! It’s all a matter of what you’re using and how badly do you need it…     12 Cards of Christmas: Cards in 60 seconds! First let’s agree that 60 seconds cards are much less fancy and embellished than other cards. There’s simply not enough time to spend on cutting lots of pieces of paper and attaching them.
