Graphic 45 A place in time 11 and 12

IMG_8537 (Medium)IMG_8536 (Medium)I have titled these ones  A place in time., but I am a bit torn – they could be from graphic 45 Time to celebrate…either way they are graphic 45 papers,my favourite paper company and I love working with any of their paper. Just a little layering and ribbon and lace for these 2 easy cards.Today has been a lovely relaxing day in the craft room, doing an order or two, and making some male cards for all the male birthdays coming up in our family, and in between a few cards ready for the fair boxes. I haven’t settled on one thing – just moved from paper collection and stamp set as the fancy took me- not a way I usually work, but fun just the same. I hope you are all enjoying your Easter break, til tomorrow…..

Graphic 45 a place in time number 9

IMG_8734 (Medium)here is the last of my A place in time series using Graphic 45 papers.Sonething new tomorrow. I matted the small images using bazil and kaisercard cardstock, and added a seam binding ribbbon binding bow. I have turned this one into a mothers day card, but on reflection it would make a lovely girls card – not sure what I was thinking there!The card base is Stampin Up baja breeze cardstock, which my sister tells me is being discontinued so I have stocked up on it as it is one of my favourite colours for card bases.Seems to match a lot of the papers I have in my craft room, and I am sorry to see it go.Looking forward to spending a couple of hours in the craft room tonight after a truly hectic week1 Til tomorrow….

IMG_8733 (Medium)I have been on a bit of a hunt through my photo files looking for the card ( well two actually) that I made for a 40th retro birthday order that I had, and it appears that I haven’t got photos of them although Nathan and I are both sure that we took them. I  still have one  of the cards so the next time the camera is out we will take a photo so that I can post it! So to todays card – This is Graphic 45 paper – the images are from a Place In Time, and the background is from an older graphic 45 collection – the good thing about Graphic 45 paper is that most of the collections do have pieces that will match with other collections.The bigger image is matted on Kaisercard, and I found some trim in my ribbon drawer that matches perfectly with the blue and orange tones.Taught a class last night, and this morning – lovely ladies, and had a great time. This afternoon was a little nap time to catch up on lost sleep, and now I am ready for the weekend! Til tomorrow….

Here I used stampin Up garden green cardstock, some lovely purple bazil, a cheery lyn tropical flourish die and a few flowers. the image was actually two, which I folded in half, lined up the bracket shape and stuck them together. Thats all for today, I am teaching a lesson tonight so must go and get organised. Til tomorrow…

IMG_7236 (Medium)Number 6 in my graphic 45 a place in time march cut outs series.I used Stampin Up garden green cardstock, and some bazil which I punched with Martha stewart lace doily punch, and also used some to matt the main image. A strip of the reverse side of the paper, some flowers and ribbon , bit of fussy cutting the fairy image  and this is a great card for a young lady! Again very hot here today, I have been busy making sme boxes to put my cards in to, but will pack up now and cool off under the air conditioner..Til tomorrow….

Graphic 45 a place in time number 5

IMG_7235 (Medium)Not much product on this one – graphic 45 A place in  time March cut outs , some kaisercraft pearls, a little ribbon and Stampin Up Crushed Concorde card stock – a very quick and easy Mothers day card.Love the bird image on this one. It’s a few degrees cooler here today ( and not for long I am told) so I will be in the craft room tonight finishing off my orders before the temperature rises again! Til tomorrow….

Graphic 45 A place in time number 4

IMG_7234 (Medium)Sorry I missed yesterdays post, but our new air conditioning system was installed and it was a little busy around here – just in the nick of time too, as I sit here it’s 43C and is going to stay that way for quite a few days. Today is number 4 in my Graphic 45 A place in time series, still using my original 2 sheets of March cut outs. The cardstock is Stampin up Garden Green, and a lovely piece of bazil. I stamped a four leaf clover from my oxford impressions Farm stamp set and gold embossed it. The addition of a kaisercraft brad, and there it is – a good luck card ! I have a couple of orders to do, but far too hot today, the glue will dry before I get it near the cardstock, so the craft room will have to wait. Til tomorrow….
