Graphic 45 - Bird Song Notebook


Dropping in today to share a little notebook cover I created with the newest Graphic 45 Deluxe Collectors Edition Bird Song. It is a lovely collection with lots of images to be fussy cut and as you all know I love to fussy cut.

'Bird Song Notebook'

I needed a new notebook for my desk and already had a set of the Graphic 45 notebooks so I chose the lined notebook and created a dimensional fussy cut front cover. Nothing to over the top but just enough.

So love the images in this collection.

Just a few layers to make it pop!!

Graphic 45 - Gift Card Envelopes

Hi Everyone!!

Sharing some super sweet gift card envelopes I created using some of the older Graphic 45 Christmas collections St Nicholas and Christmas Magic. With Christmas around the corner I thought these would be a quick, easy and a super cute idea to give a gift card as a gift and these ones will be put to good use.

'Gift Card Envelopes'

I created the envelopes using one of the Graphic 45 ATC Policy Envelopes as a template from coordinating patterned papers from the collections.

I fussy cut images from the collections to create a nice dimensional front on each envelope.

I added a chipboard tag from each collection and attached with a chain to write the name of the lucky person that will be receiving the gift.

I have let the backs of the envelopes plain and simple and will close with a dob of glue once the card is inside.

Dusty Attic - Crescent Moon Dreamcatcher

Hello Everyone!

Here with you today to share a Dreamcatcher I created using Dusty Attic Chipboard. I have keep the colouring very soft and shabby, so it easily blends in with my home decor.

'Crescent Moon Dreamcatcher'

I created the main frame of the dreamcatcher using the largest clock of the Skeleton Clock set. I cut part of the clock away to allow the dreamcatcher to look like the shape of the crescent moon.

I painted almost all of the Dusty chipboard with white gesso and then top coated with Dusty acrylic paint Alblaster, it a gorgeous pure white.

The main pieces of the cluster that sits above and behind the web I have used both the large and small pieces from the Cog Cluster chipboard set.

To create the foliage parts of the main cluster I have used a few different pieces from varies dusty chipboard sheets, all are listed below. 

I also added a smaller Skeleton Clock to the side of the dreamcatcher just to balance it out and it kind of helps the frame the gum nut centre piece.

To add extra bulk to the cluster I have added a few Prima leaves and berries.

The dreamcatcher tail was created with wool and lots of it. For added texture some was platted while other were slightly frayed.
