Sweet Sentiments Altered Hook Rack

Today on the Graphic 45, you can find a fabulous altered Typography radio by Nichola and this springy hook rack I altered using Sweet Sentiments! There is also a fun Botanical Tea prize to be won - simply leave a comment on Graphic 45's blog or Facebook page to be entered!


From the moment I spotted this wooden rack, I knew a Graphic 45 altered project was in store. My first thought was to create something beachy with By The Sea. Then as other design team projects came up, my thoughts kept changing. That happens quite a bit in my craft room! I'm sure that's the same for many of you. You find something great with one intention, and it ends up being something completely different after so many iterations! 


I decided to use Sweet Sentiments because of the fun mesh wiring. It made me think of a wire basket, which then led me to think of a garden. It's hard to tell, but I used several fussy cut layers of flowers to emulate a 3D look of a bunch of flowers. 



As a Graphic 45 design team member, I've been blessed to create with some of the most amazing product before it hits store shelves, along with beautiful product from partner companies, like Gina's Designs. That's where I found the beautiful Queen Anne's Lace chipboard die cuts below!




My favorite part of my hook rack? It's also a mini card organizer! I made this makeshift filing system inside to help me store blank cards for easy storage and access.



There you have it, folks! Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you all have a wonderfully crafty week! And if you're like me (a Graphic 45 lover) I bet you are so excited for the newest releases to hit stores. I'm especially stoked for Come Away With Me and the new ephemera pack, and built-in templates. I have a feeling there are more fun surprises in store for us this year!
