Graphic 45 Children's Hour projects and announcement!


Wow, has it really been six months since my last blog post? Well, a lot has happened since then, even before that. I moved around a bit (no surprise there), had to put my crafty business on hold and was offered a neat position back on Graphic 45's design team as a Special Projects Designer. That's right! (I'm on the blog today with Robin Shakoor - go check it out!)

Along with some of my favorite ladies - Annette Green, Gloria Stengel and Robin - I help design projects for Graphic 45, specifically the monthly class series (which I get to do with Gloria). First, we design a monthly altered project, such as a mini album or shadow box. Then with the leftover papers (and a few additional supplies), we create a card project for you!

Here are a couple projects I made for the February 2016 classes, which are featured on the Graphic 45 blog today. The first project is an ivory altered book box that I decorated with Children's Hour. Inside, there's an ivory tag album, also decorated with this gorgeous line.

The fun part? You can add a metal embellishment from Graphic 45's Staples line, like this fun door knocker. It's one of my favorites.

My second project for February is this card trio. I used the three ivory tags that came with the altered book box to make these. 

You can make these cards extra pretty by adding some shabby chic ornate metal keyholes

Here's the free project sheet, if you'd like to make these all-occasion greeting cards. 

Thank you so much for looking! Have a great weekend!
