Graphic 45 - Dreamland Cards

Hi everyone!!

Dropping by for a quick post today to share a couple of cards I created with the new Graphic 45 collection called Dreamland. It is a beautiful collection full of amazing images and bright fun colours.

'Dreamland Cards'

Graphic 45 have newly released Die Cut Assortment sets to go with their new collections. I love them because they make for quick and easy projects. Both cards were created mainly by using the Dreamland set.

The pieces were simply layered to create cards full of details and dimension. I added some cotton thread on this card to give some moon beams. To add extra colour to the cards I used the Dreamland 12x12 Patterns and Solids papers.

I added a few rhinestones to give the cards a little extra bling.

Dusty Attic - Peanut

Hi everyone!!

Here today to share a little off the page project. This started life as a piece of wood that I found in a scrap bin. I just loved the texture and the shape of it when I saw it and had immediate ideas for using it.


The colours for the entire project was drawn from the colours that were throughout the piece of board. I gave the board a few coats of matte clear coat just to protect it a little and help draw out the natural colours.

I wanted to keep with natural theme for the project so I used lots of Dusty foliage chipboard pieces.

The flowers were altered using water colours and for extra sparkle a little mica powder.

I added a few Dusty flutterbies, because who doesn't love butterflies.

The main focus of my project was on our little Peanut and he has been framed using the smallest Dusty skeleton clock face.

Graphic 45 - Ruby Slipper


Dropping in today to share my Ruby Slipper created with my favourite Graphic 45 collection at the moment the Magic Of Oz collection. When I saw that this collection was being released again I was so so happy.

'There Is No Place Like Home'

This project started with an idea to simply create a ruby slipper which I did out of paper. Once the shoe was made I coated the entire shoe with Ruby Red glitter. It is so pretty and clingy when the light hits it, unfortunately the camera really doesn't do it justice.

I made a stand for the ruby slipper to sit upon and then went about embellishing it. This was the fun part for me because my imagination could run wild. I fussy cut images from the collection and went about creating a bit of a story.

The ladder was made with some yellow embroidery thread and toothpicks.
