Graphic 45: 'Twas the night before Christmas card

Oh my God... It's just FIVE.. yes 5 days before Christmas!!! Eeeekkk!!!
After all these years.. I still miss celebrating this festive season in my home country.
As you all know, there's no Christmas celebration in Saudi Arabia. Being here as a foreigner, I believe that you have to respect their culture and traditions. And celebrating the season isn't one of them... so I just content myself with looking at photos on Facebook and exchanging greetings with family and relatives back home through pms and phone calls.

Anyways, for today.. I wanna share with you a card using 'Twas the night before Christmas.
I love this card... love how it turned out.

   lots of layers and distressing here...

Graphic 45: 'Twas the night before Christmas mini-album

Hiya there folks! Can't believe it's just a few days before Christmas.. time flies so fast!
Today, my 'Twas the night before Christmas mini-album is posted on the Graphic45 blog.
As always, I had fun creating this project.
It's quite small but full of little surprises inside! 
I've been loving incorporating little pockets and tags in my mini-albums lately.. more space for journaling and photos...
I liked how you can mix and match the papers in this Graphic45 collection.
I distressed the edges a bit with Brushed Corduroy distress ink.
If you're a fussy cutter like me, this collection is heaven!

Such a festive and beautiful collection from Graphic 45, isn't it?

Hope you like today's post. Thanks for dropping by!

Graphic 45: Set of cards with matching bag

Just wanna share a Graphic 45 project I made, a set of 10 cards with a matching pretty bag.

I used the Time to celebrate collection which is perfect for every occasion. 
I love how the rich brown color of the Core'dinations cardstock I used made the colors pop and how the embossing added that beautiful texture. I made a basic tutorial on how to create the bag and you can find it here in my Snapguide tutorial: How to create a set of cards with matching bag.

How the bag looks like opened...
And here are the cards...

Pinterest-inspired layout

Hi folks! Sharing with you today a layout I created for Graphic 45 using "Come away with me" collection.

We're to get inspiration from Pinterest and got inspired by this card with banners..
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/72902087693087950/

My layout is all about my dream travel destinations.... that I hope one day I'd be able to travel to with my hubby.

I created a pocket where I stored the photos of the places I dream of exploring someday...
I used my fave Sizzix tattered floral die to create the flowers. This is actually the FIRST project I used this die with.
 Inside the mini pocket album...
 Dream travel destinations!

Check out the complete list of supplies I used to create this layout in the Graphic 45 blog.
Thanks for checking me out!

Love potion bottle

Hello all!
I have another project to share this week with you. It's my first time to alter a bottle and it was fun!

I used Graphic 45 Steampunk Spells collection which is a first time for me. I love the colors and the fun design in this collection. Perfect for Halloween and other steampunk projects.

I just clustered several fussy cut designs from different papers in the collection. I used a flat stick to adhere a piece of paper where all the fussy cut designs were adhered to. Then I used some trims to accentuate the center as well as layers of the paper flowers also from the same collection.

I asked hubby to spray paint the bottle since I cannot do that on my own (pregnant, remember hehe).
I loved how it turned out! I just wish I have a better adhesive because I find it difficult to adhere the labels etc to the bottle. I used glue gun and I hope it will stay (fingers crossed).

An Eerie Tale stamp storage

Hello crafty peeps!
It has been weeks since the last time I posted. Was super busy and kind of resting from making crafty things once in a while since my right hand is not functioning that well (always numb and painful when I work it too much.. like typing this post. Good thing I still finish, just super slow lol!

Today, I want to share with you another Graphic 45 project I created a while back but just sharing now. I used the gorgeous An Eerie Tale collection for this one. I was thinking of how to store my Graphic 45 stamps and I didn't have any at the time I unpacked them. But I did have some foam boards lying around and thought I could make use of that and create a storage- from scratch.


You can check out more detail shots and the complete list of supplies used in making this storage in the Graphic 45 blog.
