Dream Card

This is a sweet little card created using mostly Graphic 45’s Mother Goose collection. The card is accented with Mother Goose die cut flowers which I’ve layered with 3D foam dots to give them more dimension. Some fussy cut flowers add to the colourful floral cluster.







Supplies:

Steampunk Spells Handbound Journal

I've been away on holidays in England and Scotland, which explains why I haven't been updating the blog. But I'm back. :)

I'm going to start by updating the blog with some projects which have gone up in the Graphic 45 blog.

I had a great time creating this Steampunk Spells handbound journal from scratch. The signatures are stitched onto the spine in a buttonhole bookbinding method, using two-toned twine. The Steampunk Spells patterned papers from the inside pages peek out through the buttonhole on the spine, while a Staples ornate metal key and chipboard dangle from the stitches. One of my favourite parts of the journal is the closure I created using a Staples Ornate Metal Key Hole, through which I threaded a couple of strings of suede which end in two little Staples ornate keys. These suede ties hold the journal shut and can double up as bookmarks as well.







Supplies:
Steampunk Spells Patterned Paper - Totally Wicked, Frightful Folly, Tick-Tock
Steampunk Spells Chipboard 2
Steampunk Spells Alphabet Stickers
Graphic 45 Staples - Ornate Metal Keys
Graphic 45 Staples - Ornate Metal Keyholes
Timeless Twine
