Bright Pattern Paper Page + VDay Card using the G45 Fashion Forward Collection

I want is all graphic 45 bundle excluding the 8x 8 paper pad

Hi all, Jennifer Taylor here. Today I am stopping by to share a fun 12 x 12 page and a card I made using the graphic 45 Fashion Forward Collection. The page I made is of my oldest daughter when she was 13 and I love this picture of her . She has the best smile:)
To start my page I loved the purple shirt my daughter was wearing in the picture and that inspired the pattern papers I chose. For the base, I used the turquoise b side from the paper pad below. I then layered strips of the pink and blue b side pattern paper.

Next I layered 2 journaling cards behind the photo. I then cut out the saying strips and added those to the left of the picture along with the smile and circle stickers.

To make this cluster above, I took a fancy diecut from the diecut pack and cut it in half. I then layered in under the edge of the photo adding a circle sticker then a chipboard circle on top. Finishing it off with a Prima flower from my stash And distressing the edges with my finger nail. To add some white touches to my page I used a white gel pen to trace the edges of my papers and stickers then used white ink to make the splatters.

For my A2 Valentine’ s day card I used the ephemera card to cover my card base that I made from black patter. I cut the sentiment off the bottom of the card and pop dotted it to fit in on to the A2 size card as the ephemera card was slightly longer than my card base. I then distressed the edges and added flowers from my stash and layered two small diecuts into the corner above the sentiment.

12 x 12 Scrapbook Page using Graphic 45 Fashion Forward by Jen Taylor

Hi all. I am stopping by today to share my scrapbook page of my younger daughter when she was in preschool at my mom’s day tea . I made it using this bold and beautiful collection that celebrates every month of the year called Fashion Forward from Graphic 45.

Here is a picture of the collection I got to work with this month.



12 x 12 scrapbook page

For this scrapbook page I started my base layer with the backside of the July cutapart sheet, it has such a pretty pink, purple, and green floral pattern that matched my daughters hat. (that was a hat she made for my mom’s day tea attire that she decided to model for me- she did look cuter in it then me though) Then, I cut a piece of white cardstock from my stash slightly smaller to layer on top. I then spilled something on my white cardstock. oops! so I cut another white sheet smaller to double layer the white and cover my mistake. (my best pages are usually the ones I creatively covered a mistake )

Next, I cut out the may and you are amazing pieces from a cut apart sheet and added them to the page. I then grabbed the awesome diecut pack and cut and used different bits to layer under and around her picture including the layered butterfly. Finishing the scrapbook page with the date stamped, black pen border and ink splashes.

Crafternoon Mini Album

Hi everyone. Laurie here with another fun project using the Crafternoon Collection from Kaisercraft. I designed this fun little mini album awhile back and thought it would be perfect for this collection.

Crafternoon mini album

I am going to a scrapbook retreat this summer and this will be perfect to put my photos in and preserve the memories. I wanted the booklet to focus on paper crafts so I used those words on the cover. I chose some of the generic papers for the pages. Each of the pages and the inside covers also have either a sticker mounted on cardstock or and ephemera piece as a tuck-spot for additional photos as well.

I used Graphic 45 Square Tags as inserts in each of the pages. I matted them in plain white cardstock using the tag die. I think they will be fun to add photos to or have new friends jot down their contact information so we can stay in touch.

The mini album is 5 1/4 x 5 1/2 inches with a chipboard cover and has 6 pages to add photos. I love it because it is large enough for photos and yet small enough for a special event. I chose not to add a lot of flaps and pockets to this one because sometimes....less is more!

I can't wait to add my photos after the retreat! I hope this inspires you to create a project for your special event as well.

I used these products for the album and you can find them all at Fotobella.com :

Crafternoon Scrapbook Layout by Laurie - Crafternoon by Kaisercraft

Hi everyone. Laurie here with my final Fotobella Design Team post for this month. I used the fabulous Crafternoon Scrapbook Bundle by Kaisercraft. This time I decided on a 12 x 12 scrapbook layout that could easily be added to an album or a frame.

A couple of years ago, a very good friend went through a pretty rough time. Her precious baby girl was born with a life-threatening condition known as CDH. There were so many of us who stood by her and supported her through this time. Now, that little "miracle" is a burst of sunshine on a cloudy day! She was the perfect subject for my project:

I trimmed 1/8 inch from each side of the gray page and attached it to a piece of white linen cardstock. It makes the page a bit sturdier for framing. Then, I fussy cut two of the doilies from the paper and mounted them onto some die cuts from my stash. I printed my photos on regular cardstock and cut them out leaving a small border of white around the main image. Next, I matted those with coordinating colors of cardstock. The paintbrush and pallet are pieces of ephemera.

I attached the main photo using pop dots to make it stand out. I used some of the leaves and flowers from the ephemera pack for accents. Clip between the petals and used a stylus on the back to give them shape, and attached with a dot of glue in the center of the flower and at the base of the leaves.

Ephemera Flowers and Leaves

No doubt this will end up in a frame for Kadie's mom. Thanks for letting me share my scrapbook layout with you.

Graphic 45 Fashion Forward A2 Size Card Duo

Hi all, Jennifer Taylor here. Can you believe it's February already?!

I am stopping by today to share my card duo, made using this bold and beautiful collection that celebrates every month of the year called Fashion Forward from Graphic 45.

Here is a picture of the collection I got to work with this month.

I want it all Fashion Forward bundle without the 8x8 paperpad

Crafty tip- make a bunch of card bases ahead of time to use with your collection to make cards quicker and easier.

For this first card ”you are my sunshine”, I used a blue card base I made from the pattern paper pack. I distressed the edges and layered a ephemera card on top. I love this image with the butterflies and girl on it. To make her more magical, I added fairy wings by using a butterfly diecut from the collection and glitter on them. Then, to make her pop off the page I used a second card to fussy cut her out and foam dot it on top of the other image. Next, I cut bits of stickers to add a border, sentiment and corner. Lastly, I added beautiful coordinating flowers to the lower left, to add the finishing touch.

Onto the second one, ”you are classy” I used a purple pattern paper base that I made ahead of time. I then pulled out the beautiful clock diecut and used the black side to add a pop on the purple. I layered bits and pieces of sticker edges I liked around the ephemera in the middle. Next, I added a chipboard label with a sentiment from the collection cutapart sheet. Now, I inked the card edge with black ink and did a little more fussy cutting and added a second layer of the classy lady with pop dots and finished it off with a Prima flower.

Chipboard Tags feat. Graphic 45 Life's A Journey

It's Jeanne, and this week I'm back with these large chipboard tags I created using Graphic 45's Life's A Journey Collection. I love creating tags to give just as a gift or make it into a card.

Graphic 45 Life's A Journey

I created this set of 2 large chipboard tags using these beautiful papers. As mentioned in my previous post, I gradually got comfortable creating with this paper collection so when choosing the papers for this project, I didn't want it too colorful so papers from both 12x12 sets were used on these tags.

I began but cutting two pieces of chipboard at 4x8, I then used Vintage Photo distress ink as well as Black Soot distress ink around the edges of the tag. I selected papers from the I Want It All Bundle for these tags. Although this collection is very colorful , I wanted to create these with the more neutral colors .

Once I was done adhering the papers on my tags, I finalized it using some laces andfew flowers and one one tag I did add pearls in and around my flowers.

I love to layer on what ever projects I create. I feel like it adds an additional interest and dimension to my projects. Don't worry about covering up items such as lace because you can always leave areas where they peek thru. It always fun to break down and see all of the detail of everyone's project so therefore that gave me the idea of creating projects like that.

I do hope that you enjoyed this short post that I created today. I hope that you are inspired to create your own tags even cards using some layering methods and perhaps sneaking in some surprise elements into your projects. It makes them that much more interesting just like your own personality!! See you all next week with another project!! ~Hugs~ Jeanne
