Hey there Paper Peeps. I know we’ve been on a bit of a Christmas project swing lately…but today we’re changing it up a bit to share a project I created especially for Graphic 45. They asked for some Thanksgiving Decor..and I admit as a Mom of two boys….the only table decor I’ve had usually starts with turkeys traced from their cute little hands : ) They are not little anymore so time for something a little more grown up!
This centerpiece started out life as a re-purposed lantern from Bath and Body Works . I loved the shape..and a flameless candle can fit inside to light it up. This lantern is approx. 11 inches tall.
From the side you can really see how I layered on the dimensional flowers created with the Graphic 45 papers.The Ivory/Brown/Copper Plaid ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
I incorporated some Dusty Attic chipboard and a few elements from a Fall pic from the craft store. You can see that I’ve even covered the top…..why did I do this I’ll never know because it makes it difficult to pic up…but it’s pretty so that what counts right? I’ve also added some tags from the Ivory Tag Album to brighten up the dark colors.

Well hello there Paper Peeps! I’m dropping in to share some Victorian styled fancy fold cards. I started with vintage images and layered them over pretty patterned papers and topped them off with Really Reasonable Ribbon Trims and festive embellishments. My Tuesday Night Vintage Chicks will be making these for class….going to be loads of fun : )
The beautiful Really Reasonable Ribbons I used for these cards: Burlap Center Stitch Pink, Chevron Striped Twill Light Blue, Diamonds and Dots on Silver Satin, Plaid Ribbon Blue/Gray/Ivory, and Wild Orchid Crafts Open Roses Baby Blue.
I used the patterned papers and images from my Victorian Christmas Creativity Kit along with cardstock and bits and pieces from my scrap and salvage box.
Good Morning Paper Peeps! You know I get all happy when we start a new challenge. I am always just blown away by the creative projects submitted. You all are like crazy talented!!!! And getting to see the different interpretations of the themes is soooo inspiring : )
For this theme it’s Gift Packaging and Ribbon…two things that just go together…like chocolate and peanut butter!
I used black cardstock and my Score Pal to create a basic box then covered it in Mother Goose~ Sunshine Stripe from Graphic 45. I’m tryin out a new black and white theme for Christmas this year just to shake things up a bit. The bow assemblage slides off to allow the box to be opened to add a gift inside. I’m planning to display this in my kitchen hutch : )
I started with a big bold Vintage Script Ribbon with a lovely tattered edge then topped it off with Black Plaid Ribbon.
I started out this arrangement by making nice loops of the script ribbon then layering on a glittery snowflake ornament, wintry white flowers, pine cones, pretty sparkly stems and last but not least more poofy bows of the plaid. I finished it off by tucking in a festive tag trimmed from my Chalkboard Style Christmas Tags collage sheet and it’s ready to give(or display.)
Okay now it’s your turn to create a fabulous project and link up with us for Challenge #107 Gift Packaging and Ribbon or Trim to play along!
Okay that’s all for me…getting ready to take Teen Peep 2 to school and it’s exactly -1 degrees……and it’s not even December yet yikes!!!!
Wishing you all a happy and productive day with lots of time to be creative : ) G
Well hey there Paper Peeps. It a chilly morning here in Michigan (11 degrees) and we’ve had an overnight snow…so it’s time to get in full on Christmas project mode! Today I am sharing the card I created for the Graphic 45 ~Core-dinations Blog Hop.
I ran my Core’dinations cardstock through embossing folders, sanded and chalked to create a nice background pattern for Twas the Night Before Christmas paper from Graphic 45.
These poinsettias are also created with the cardstock. More glitter and a fancy center. I love this Celery Green Plaid Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon to brighten up this arrangement.
There is so much inspiration in this blog hop I encourage you to visit the Graphic 45 blog to enjoy the projects the DT have created using the Core’dinations cardstocks.
