Christmas Envelope Photo Folder

 To complete a trio of Graphic 45 Twelve days of christmas projects here is photo folder to store 
some christmas memories.
I think this collection from graphic 45 is my favourite christmas collection.
Here are a few techniques in this project that may be with trying out.


Firstly try making you folder from chipboard then you can make it any size you want 


Use Core'dinations graphic 45 signature series card stock colours as they match perfectly to 
any of the graphic 45 collections.



Try using a buckle closure for your folder in conjunction with inked grunge paper.  



The stickers and chipboard packs matching the graphic 45 collections make the ideal way to have perfectly coordinated embellishments for your project. 


and finally try using different coloured envelopes to create a different look

I hope these ideas will help I've inspiration to your next project

12 Days of Christmas Crackers

Graphic 45 twelve days of christmas paper collection is one of my top
favorites from the graphic 45 range. I love the colours and could not resist using it with my latest twinery design team project.

I decided that christmas crackers would be fun project to make.




As you can see there are great papers that coordinate so well and the green twine 
I have used is almost a perfect match.
I used the twine to create a cross hatched effect for some back ground texture.
The colour I used on the box was


This photo is a front view of the cracker box. I made some rosettes from the paper and incorporated petaloo poinsettias and mulberry roses. the two birds are fussy cut 
from the paper collection. 


The box I altered is graphic 45 8 x 8 match book box. It has a slide drawer which 
holds the crackers. 



The crackers were made using the we r memory keepers candy box punch board. Then paper mats were made to decorate the outside. 
The cracker labels are coordinated stickers mounted on card stock. 


The ends of the crackers were fastened using more twinery bakers twine 
in the following colours




This was a fun project to create. Making your own crackers adds a personal touch to
 christmas. They could be used as a gift or an addition to any christmas table. 
Thanks for stopping by and please leave a comment if you would like.

Happy crafting

Graphic 45 Scrap Frame Trio

It has been a little while since I have posted and its catch up time. I am 
about to move interstate so it has been a busy time plus there have been a few personal things, but now to share what I have made lately.

My scrap frames were an idea I had to decorate my craft room with a splash of graphic 45.
I had three blank frames in my stash and painted them up to match these 
great graphic 45 collections 

Raining cats and dogs
Time to celebrate 
Twas the night before christmas


I love the colours of this first frame and it has a lot applications. 
There are fabulous images and I have another project that I will be sharing using this 
collection : raining cats and dogs.


Time to celebrate is the 45th collection from graphic 45 and it has a wonderful colour 
palette and theme. The large section of this frame gave me a great 
opportunity to fussy lots of images from the collection.



The final frame is a christmas theme and uses Graphic 45 twas the night before
christmas collection.
