Here are a few projects I've created with Graphic 45 products.
Project 1: Olde Curiosity Shoppe Music Box
I created a music box using Graphic 45's Olde Curiosity Shoppe collection, Kraftboard Altered Art Box, Flower Staples and Metal Buttons.
The cover opens up to reveal this:
I made a little brass cameo from the yellow butterfly in the patterned paper.
This next cover opens up to reveal the music box:
I kept this compartment relatively unadorned so it can be used to keep bits of jewellery or keepsakes. And yes, that is a real music box.
On the right of the music box is this shabby-chic page, adorned with butterflies.
The butterflies hold the key to a surprise to this project. It is the Olde Curiosity Shoppe collection after all, and we have to pique curiosity. Open up this page and ta-daaahh!
The Olde Curiosity Shoppe in 3D, along with a flying pig. :)
Project 2: Old Fashioned Camera
I made this next project on a whim yesterday after looking at the Curtain Call collection and my old stash of Communique papers. I thought it would be fun to create my own old fashioned camera. It still needs work and I'll probably make a new and improved model later. But for now, here's my version of a vintage camera.
The camera is made from recycled products like a biscuit box, toilet roll and bottle covers.

Project 3: Romantique Altered Film Canister and Mini Album
I altered Graphic 45's Metal Film Canister using the lovely Romantique papers. I went for a floral topper complemented by some flowers, butterflies, lace trims and doilies.
The mini album:

Project 4: Layout - Wicked
We had just gone to catch Wicked the Musical in London and of course I had to scrap it using Graphic 45's The Magic of Oz papers.
The layout is created in a shadowbox-style, made from the Magic of Oz papers. The base of the layout is hemp, which reminded me of Scarecrow. The layout is built up in 3D layers, going about 4 layers deep.
Project 5: Layout - A Perfect Day
Another layout in a shadowbox style, this time using the very pretty Once Upon A Springtime papers.
Project 6: Layout - Notre Dame
A layout using le' Romantique papers in a cleaner romantic style with splashes of mist.
Project 7: Layout - Little Italy
I love the colours on this layout so decided to show it off as well. It's a layout from one of the earlier collections, On The Boardwalk.
Project 8: Layout - Hugs, Love, Kisses
Another layout using the ever-so-pretty Once Upon a Springtime collection. These papers are so easy to use they practically scrap themselves. Lots of fussy cutting here, layered with concentric circles of doilies and punched borders, with the foam dot layers going 4 levels high.
So there you have it, some of my most recent Graphic 45 projects as well as a couple of older ones. All the best to everyone trying out for the DT!
