An adoring adieu

That is the title of the loving farewell post from Graphic 45 for me as I complete my two-year term as on of their design team members.

You can see some of my favorite projects created the past year for Graphic 45.

I love all of the things I created for them, each project special. It's difficult to just choose three so I decided to post some more here :)


"Home sweet home" mini-album
 


 


"Sweetheart" mixed media layout





"Shabby chic desk organizer"






and last but not the least is this newest addition to my G45 organizers :)

"Matchbook box drawers"





Thank you Graphic 45 for the two very memorable crafty years! <3 all="" being="" design="" i="" learned="" miss="" much="" on="" p="" so="" team.="" the="" will="" you="">

CK May 2016 Pep Rally

Hello everyone!
Welcome to this month's pep rally!

We are featuring creations using the May 2016 kit, "Northern Lights"
This is the page I created for the blog share

"Be different"
I love this paper with watercolor effect.
I layered several papers and distressed the edges with my scissors
I think the color yellow is a nice touch. Made the colors pop and still made the photos as focal point of the page
I went crazy with the puffy stickers in the kit! 

I hope you liked my page...

Trust me, you're lovely


Hello everyone!
Just sharing the page I created for Clique Kits last NSD weekend. I thought I already scheduled this to post but it didn't go live lol! I don't know what happened. Meaning I didn't visit my blog since NSD lol
Anyways, here it is. 

"Trust me, you're lovely"

My mixed media layout for Clique Kits' Scrap you heart out NSD event



I used several of the floral cut files and adhered to the background after spreading color using diluted gelatos and watercolors. I also used a TCW stencil and Faber Castell whipped spackle to add texture on the background
Simple layering and clustering on top of strips of papers. I converted my photo to black and white, I think it has stand out better over the colorful papers and embellishments

Added colors to the title cut file with gelatos and watercolors as well

You still have 2 more days to join the NSD challenges. 

Thanks for dropping by!


Happy crafting,

She makes me smile

I have a new layout up on the Just Nick Studio blog

The theme this week is all about MOMS.

Of course, I made a page about me and my mini-me as some people say :)

I used these pretty cut files, Delicate Florals for my page


I added a little of splash of color in the middle of the page where I placed mostly the elements in my layout. To achieve the splashed effect, I used a piece of plastic to scatter the diluted watercolor and gelatos. I poured the mixture to the paper, then I flattened my palm on the plastic. Lifting it and them flattening it to parts I wanted colors to scatter to. I hope you get what I am talking about hahaha!

To make the floral cut files stand out, I just added colors to some parts and not all of it. Stickers added colors to them as well
I love how this turned out (of course, love your own hahahaha!). Messy yet balanced (at least in my eyes.. this is my creation, after all lol!).
Check more of this on the Just Nick Studio blog!
I used "Origins" April Kit by Clique Kits for this page.

Ribbons And Trims Organizer

Hello friends!
Today I am going to share my Earth Day project created for Graphic 45.

I am sure I am not the only one who uses an old shoebox to store stuff. In this case, I used my husband's basketball rubber shoes box. Well, obviously because it's bigger than my shoes' boxes lol


I've already been using this box to store some of my ribbon and trims stash. There is another shoebox waiting to be altered like this one. That is in my next to-do list.
I made the simple shoebox prettier with some Graphic 45 papers and Petaloo flowers.





 I used a template to cut the ribbon spools and some of the pockets and tags from the same paper collection

Here is a Snapguide tutorial showing you how I created this super fun project.


I hope you like it!

Thanks for dropping!

Happy crafting,
Donna
