Final Dreamweaver Thursday

Pin It
I'm off to a bit of a late start this week.  I have been thinking about the last to years with Dreamweaver and all the fun I have had.  I love Lynell Harlow and the opportunity she has given me.  This is an amazing company and GREAT product. 

I am not doing a tutorial for my last post...I am sharing some of my favorite projects from the last two years as a tribute to these wonderful designs.  Make sure and check out all of the posts from the current team and check the Dream It Up blog for the next set of Dream Team!

Graphic 45 Design Team 2013 Audition

  • Pin It
I am  applying for the wonderful design team of Graphic 45.  I don't work or design for any company that I don't love and believe in the products.  I regularly purchase Graphic 45 papers and embellishments.  I would LOVE to have more access to free product, but regardless whether I make the team or not, I will still be using these wonderful products.  Graphic 45 cares about quality and continues to come out with wonderful "MUST HAVE" products.    So I am posting a few projects I have made using Graphic 45 products.  I am not going to do step outs but will share with you what I have used.  I sent most of these projects home with Graphic 45 after Winter CHA 2013.
I had to start with some fun from the NEW French Country Collection!  I could not believe that Dreamweaver Stencils has a beautiful Rooster that matches so well!  I also had to use a fun Chip Board piece on the card as well.  I have a couple of cards that will be published in the fall using this line of paper as well.  Look for CardMaker Fall for a couple of more card samples!
On thing I like to do is create home decor projects.  This first project is a $1 frame transformed!
I love all things OZ and with the new release of the Great and Powerful...this is just fun.  The shine is from Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel.I distressed torn edges, added a yellow brick road with a Dreamweaver Stencil and even used "Emerald" Connie Crystals
Edges are finished with Krylon Pale Gold!
Next is a fun BABY banner.  Love Little Darlings!! I covered the letters from my big box store then used all the extras from Graphic 45 and some cute buttons and bling to make a cute banner. 
You can use is it for a baby shower or a baby room or both!  
A few close up shots!
And even closer!
Next is a fun folded box using A Ladies' Diary!
I love the outside of the little box but the best part is the surprise inside!
How fun is that? Great for gift giving!
I also had fun with the Happy Haunting Collection!
Upon further thought I might have used the word BOO!
Oh well, more is always better with Graphic 45!
I really love the NEW French Country.  This is a little glitter/Copic fun then mounted on French Country paper and WorldWin DoubleMates.


I hope you all have enjoyed all things Graphic 45!   I always have GREAT fun using these papers and stamps and embellishments for creating!
Happy Creating!

Hello and welcome to the Buttons Galore Blog Hop!  I did a spring floral with some fun big and bold buttons.  Rather than leaving them plain, I added glitter to go with the fun technique of coloring on glitter.  Supplies used are as follows:
Buttons Galore
Graphic 45-French Country
Sunflower Sticker - Sorry...Not sure what company
Copic Markersl
Glitter - Art Glitter Royal Wink and Winter White
Double Stick Paper: Dreamweaver Stencils
Cardstock: WorldWin Papers
 I love the glitter in the center of the button!
I just put the glitter on the double stick paper and burnished it well with my finger. This makes the glitter lay flat so coloring is easy. I applied the sticker and colored in with the markers!
I also had a cool Dreamweaver Stencil that is a newer release and wanted to make a patriotic owl!
This was just for me as an added fun card!
Happy Creating!
