Petaloo and Graphic 45

Hey everyone! I am back to share a really fun project I created for one of my end tables for my guest spot with Petaloo when I start to decorate this year!  I started off with just a little Brownie camera like this...


and turned it into this


I covered it with the beautiful Graphic 45 papers


and added some of the Graphic 45 cards


I tied some lace around the handle


I started adding the gorgeous Petaloo poinsettia's and picks!

On the back I toed it closed with some lace and I added some texture paste then while it was still wet I added epson salts to look like snow and add some more sparkle!


on the inside of the camera I added a Christmas tree and two carolers and more 'snow'

Thanks to Petaloo for having me guest!  I had a wonderful time!
Merry Christmas!

Petaloo, Graphic 45 and fun!

Hi everyone!!!   I am excited to be asked back to guest design this month for this awesome blog hop with Graphic 45 and Xyron!
I had so much fun creating with the awesome Petaloo and Graphic 45 products!!!!
The first item I created is for my my dining room table...


I altered a wine bottle to create this fun and whimsy centerpiece


I started off with a plain wine bottle, added layers of gesso, then crackle medium. then modeling paste.  I then added my colors with mists....


I added the Graphic 45 paper I cut out.

I then started to layer all the beautiful poinsettia's from Petaloo

I love those stars - they are sparkly and were the perfect finishing touch!

A Halloween 2 page layout!

Good morning!
 I do not normally create 2 page layouts but I thought it would be fun to with the awesome Haunted kit from Scraps Of Darkness!

This is my boys when they were younger....

I LOVE the Bo Bunny Simply Wicked papers....

I did a punch of layering with the papers and some of the gorgeous ribbon that was in the main kit!

I used a bunch of the journaling cards to create a cluster of embellishments

the other side....

 The 'cursed' paper is awesome! and I cut up the creepy paper to add some visual interest

I used a stuck? sketch!

So when I received the awesome Halloween kit from Scraps Of Darkness called 'Haunted' I was so very excited!

My first layout is of the boys when they were little carving their pumpkins!

 I love Cody's face - like Ewwwwwwwww 

I used a mixture of papers from Bo Bunny, Authentique and Simple Stories

This cool title is from Bo Bunny!

I inked the chipboard with Staz on ink from a previous kit, used the Lindy's Stamp Gang Jack-O-Lantern Orange Embossing Powder and the Tim Holtz Peeled Paint & Walnut Stain Distress Crayons.

The next layout I used the Bo Bunny Wonderfully Wicked papers to scrapbook this spooky photo of Cody!

The papers fit the eerie photo perfectly

I created layers with papers, cheese cloth, and die cuts
I added these Solid Oak Inc. Steampunk Accents Dragon Eyes from the elements add on to the die cut skull

The wicked web is from Blue Fern in the  elements add on.  I embossed it then added a chipboard spider also from the elements add on

I added some grey seed beads to the Kaisercraft Black Paper Blooms to make them more spooky.
