The Adventure Begins

Hello,

Denise here with my final project using Imagine from Graphic 45.

G45 Imagine

I  absolutely loved making this album, lots of fussy cutting and plenty of gllitter was added on the front page. It has a ‘steampunk’ type feel to it.

There are plenty of photos to follow !

I made lots of little side pockets using the 12 x 12 papers in the collection and also the 8×8 paper pad.

I also made tags and matted cards form the Ephemera Pack using Licorice Black Kaisercard

I varied the colours as they all mix and match so well.

I used some gorgeous ScrapFX chipboard elements that I painted on the pages too.IMG_E3885

I added some Platinum stickles to lots of the elements.

So there we have it, I loved making this and it was made all the easier by using the Flip album. Hope you like it !

On Top Of The World with G45 Imagine

Hello everyone,

Denise here with my second project using the very quirky and beautiful Imagine from Graphic 45.

Graphic 45 and  Kaisercraft collections, very often lend themselves to fussy cutting and this one is no exception. I decided to used the blue colours this time.

I took two separate papers, Up Up and Away and Create Yourself, ripped across the butterfly paper  ( create yourself ) and then added a strip of the Up Up and Away and placed behind the ripped piece. With the paper left from Up Up and Away I  decided I wanted to make a flower embellishment. First off I cut  1/4 inch wide strips out .

Next I folded them in half end to end then folded each end into the middle and adhered them to make loops. I then adhered the loops on top of each other to form a flower. To finish off I placed a button in the middle.IMG_3753

I fussy cut balloons from the back of the Create Yourself paper ( I had two pieces of this )

I mounted my photo on to a piece of blue card I had in my stash and then added some border from the 8×8 pad .

Across the bottom of the layout I added a strip of stamps from the Adventure Beckons paper.

I placed my photo on the left of the layout then added the fussy cut balloons which were mounted on to foam tape. 

Finally I added some gorgeous steampunk type metal cogs and after cutting my papers down mounted onto black card. I also added some black gel dots in each corner with a Black Gel Pen.

I enjoyed making this layout  and hope you are inspired !

Create Your Own Dream with Imagine

Hello everyone,

Denise here today with a different collection. I am using the very wonderful and quirky Imagine from Graphic 45.G45-Imagine

I started by using a sheet of Castles In the Air (dotty side) as my background. Next I cut a strip from Imagine and placed down the left hand side.

I decided to add some texture and interest so using a crosses stencil  I added texture paste over the background.

I used some papers from the 8×8  pad to mat behind my photo.IMG_3451Next, time for some fussy cutting! I cut lots of flowers and leaves out and also some butterflies and items from the Adventure Beckons sheet .

I coloured over some of the flowers and butterflies with some Gold Mist.

I used three of the little postcards from the Ephemera Pack to tuck in and around the layout.G45-Imagine

Next, I took two strips of the Futuristic Fantasy paper, rolled some of the background up on the top left and bottom right of the layout then added the fantasy strips behind.

I tucked some Cheesecloth Gauze just under some of the flowers and added some Champagne Rhinestones.
