In the mood for Graphic 45
The good thing about moving is I discover lots of stuff I never knew I had! I had (grasp) thing still in their original packaging..... still in their paper bags!!!! (never tell the hubby!!) Then I found some Graphic 45 tucked in a bag. GRASP!!! I decided that I better use them. Here is what I did: Some LOs, some projects, 1 card. Card: To announce our new address...... hand sew a piece of fabric on a paper. Embellish on a Maya Road Chipboard house. very fun way. I stamped on the fabric with Staz-on. Oooo... I love the effect. LO: Do not WAKE me up! This is a fun one to document my quirk. My hubby and kids love to wake me up early on a Sat morning. I hate it. Saturday is the ONLY day I can sleep in. sigh! They will do all sorts of funny tricks to get me out of bed. One will scream "fire"...... one will tickle my toes..... one will try to put her smelly clothes on my nose"...... see my grumpy face when I wake up!! hahaha.... For this LO, I played with Glimmer Mist. (I think I need more colours). And I paint the chipboard frame with crackle paint and then ink it with walnut ink. I like the texture. LO: Friends across the globe I just want to remember these ladies who pour so much into my hearts. they offer me their friendships when I was alone in the USA some years back. See the metal tag... I added some white and bronze Utee on it. very fun! Just be careful, the metal can get very hot. I stacked some tags and cut-outs together to form a cluster. Oooo...... happy news. This LO was LOTD over at CMK forum. Check it out. Altered tin: I have 4-5 of these tins from Christmas. Love the size. I wanted them to keep my 'little' savings. Here i have altered 1 to keep coins, leftover change for my 'luxury travel"... hahaha... save till my hair drop if I would reach the amount for luxury travel. But still, to spur me to save more... added in my fav elements on this tin. Before: After: ok.... I have been good. Used up my stash. The sad news is my Graphic 45 papers are almost used up. I want to buy the new collections. Can't wait! Check out their blog for sneak previews.
