Easy Paper Projects with Graphic 45

Hi dear crafty friends! This month I had to create Easy Paper Projects with Graphic 45 papers. Not all G45 projects have to be complicated with lots of steps. You can create fun, fast and easy projects too!     Easy Paper Projects with Graphic 45 My first project is an easy and fast adjustable vacation notebook. This project is perfect for all your vacation memories and it even has a special envelope for things like tickets, brochures and other memorabilia you want to keep. All you need to create this project is pieces of papers, tags, envelope and a binding machine. I used a Bind-it-All but any other binding method would do. If you don’t have something like that then just bind it with a ring or two.       My second project is also fun and easy: ATC’s with the new Master Detective collection. I found out that ATC’s are really fun to make and it’s even …

Water Colors Tags with Stamps and Fussy Cutting Tutorial

Hi dear crafty friends! Today I’m sharing the Water Colors Tags with Stamps and Fussy Cutting Tutorial I made as my first post as Graphic 45 Brand Ambassador. I know I’ve already told you how excited I am about it. Being a design team member for a second year is a dream come true!     Water Colors Tags with Stamps and Fussy Cutting Tutorial In this project I decided to explore water colors with the Graphic 45 stamps. I used water colors before but this time I wanted to see if I could use them to create a background for the tags. The Voyage Beneath the Sea papers match the sea water look of the water colors on the tags perfectly. I have a very modest set of water colors but that didn’t matter because I blended a few colors together to create more colors. After all the sea has so many colors of blue and green in it …

Capture the Moment Card with Sizzix

Hi dear crafty friends! Today I want to share with you a new project. Capture the Moment Card with Sizzix. This is my first DT project for Sizzix. I’m really excited to share it with you!      Capture the Moment Card with Sizzix It was kind of strange for me to create a project that is based on paper only after creating many mixed media and art journaling projects. But it felt good to return to the basics and just play with paper. Don’t worry I plan to create some mixed media projects with Sizzix die cuts too. After all their Bigz dies can cut chipboard like butter. That would be a lot of fun to add them to a canvas or a box.           I created this card by layering pieces of paper with chipboard so they’ll have a little height and them added flowers that were all created with Sizzix dies. At first …

Roses Treasure Box with Graphic 45

Hi crafty friends! Today I want to share with you my Roses Treasure Box with Graphic 45. This is the last post as a DT member before I start my new Graphic 45 path as an ambassador for 2017-2018. This project looks much more complicated than it really is and you can make it too with no problems at all.     Roses Treasure Box with Graphic 45 The box is made with the technique I’ve already shared with you before HERE. The post also has a step by step video tutorial to make it even easier for you. So all you need is to follow these instructions and build the two parts of the box.       The embellishments on top of the box also look much harder than they really are. All I did was cut flowers and the frame from the amazing Portarit of a Lady and attach them to the lid of the box. I …

Cut out the inside square as well. 3. attach the paper to the frame. 4. Cut around the frame to remove exess paper if nesesery. 5. Add two matching …

Graphic 45 Fall and Halloween

This month on Graphic 45 Fall and Halloween I have two sneak peeks for you. I had to create two assignments this month one for fall and one for Halloween. Not only did I have a lot of fun creating these projects but I enjoy the fact I have to challenge myself to create fun and unique projects. I have to say that working with papers you love sure makes that so much easier 🙂     Graphic 45 Fall and Halloween The fall project is a project you can create under 60 minutes! Yes, it’s not only fast it’s also affordable and easy to make. I love the fall first the weather is getting colder and I can feel the winter at the end of the tunnel. Second I love those orange and yellow colors. I created a Fall Wreath you can hang on your door or inside the house. The flowers on it will never die. Check out …

5-Minute Craft: Cards Box

Today on 5-Minute Craft: Cards Box set complete with a box to store your cards or give as a gift. This can be a great solution for ATC’s or Christmas cards that you don’t know where to put. For this project you’ll only need a 12×12 double sided thick cardstock and a bone folder to make sure your folds are creased well. If you don’t have a scoring board than use a ruler and a bone folder.     5-Minute Craft: Cards Box You can change the size of the paper you are using to accommodate larger cards. In order to do that measure the size of your card and make sure the front and back panels of the box are slightly bigger than that. That will guarantee that the box will be big enough. If you have a lot of cards you want to fit in the box just stack them together. Measure the combined height of the pile. …
