Graphic 45 Communique Boxed Mini Album and Chipboard Pages

Here is the second project I designed using the beautiful papers, chipboard elements, and sticker sheet from the Communique paper collection.

This is the second box I designed, (click here to see the video: https://youtu.be/yJdylKCJ6jon ) and I love the slim footprint of this box.

For this project, I made a mini album to accompany the 14 double-sided chipboard pages. In addition, I designed a large accordion pocket on the back of the box for even more photo and memorabilia storage.

 

Graphic 45 Communique Vintage Phone and Mini Album

Back from vacation and just finished this project. I really like the way it turned out.

When I saw the Communique paper line from Graphic 45, I knew I wanted to make a vintage phone. I also wanted to use a Graphic 45 box and tag set, something I had never done before.

For this design, I used paper tubing, disposable cups, thin chipboard, stickers from the collection as well as chipboard elements.

I kept the mini album pretty simple but made sure I added some interest in the page layout designs. The paper for the collection made it easy to be creative as it provided many element options.

Graphic 45 Sun Kissed: Mixed Media Denim Canvas

Recently, a good friend of mine shared a photo of her two young sons at the beach. The photo was so lovely that I was inspired to design this project using the Sun Kissed paper collection.

It was the first time I tried a denim canvas and will not be the last. Already working on another project design!

Using a variety of paints, alcohol inks, shells and the beautiful ephemera and papers from the collection, I was able to create a beach theme.

#SIMPLYG45: A Proper Gentleman – Masculine Cards

Need masculine greeting card ideas?

I am always in need of cards for the men in my life. Here are a few cards I created using Graphic 45 “A Proper Gentleman”.  Just a bit of additional cardstock from my paper supply, I created these cards under $10.00 dollars and less than 60 minutes.

What a great way to use up tidbits from a paper collection!

I created the card sentiments on the inside of each card. I like to write poetry, so I typically use my own original greeting card messages. I do, however, often use stamp sentiments when I need something quick or if I am coordinating a sentiment with a card design and dies.

Kris Kringle December Daily in a Box

I managed to squeeze in a Christmas in July project that showcases the 12 days of Christmas with twenty-five individually designed pages.

I’ve had this paper collection from S.E.I. for quite a few years. I had previously made a project with the collection and had some extra paper to make this project.

I love the way this project turned out. The beautiful papers in the Kris Kringle collection along with the die cut elements would enhance all your holiday photos and memories.

I did a quick search on S.E.I.’s website and did not find this paper collection. Below is a link to view some of the other paper collections and products for purchase. However, I did find that there are some selling pads and individual sheets from the collection on Etsy.

Graphic 45 Tropical Travelogue Pendant and Earrings

For this project I went back to my jewelry making roots. I love combining love my paper crafting with jewelry making and this paper collection from Graphic 45 was the perfect choice.

I used the Garden Isle paper from the 8 X 8 paper pad. I only needed just a little bit to make the pendant and earrings. I love the golds, oranges, and yellows against the black background of the paper.

Rose gold findings and a 30” rose gold chain seemed to compliment the paper nicely along with the metallic beads.

Listed below are links to some of the products I used for this project.
