Artful Mixed Media Canister Die

 Today Sizzix is having a

I wanted to share one of my favorite projects using the Artful Mixed Media Canister using the  to Kitchen Canister #15181 Die.
I just love the Kitchen Canister #15181 Die!!!
I have made so many things with it from storage containers, candy dishes, desk organizers, gift boxes, etc.
I think it is one of the most versatile dies out there.
You can create it at the regular height, cut it down at the top to make stair step canisters, leave them open, add the lid.
Die cut out the sides for lanterns.
OH MY...
I could go on and on and on why I love the Kitchen Canister #15181 Die .

Be A Star with Vintage Hollywood Layout with Graphic 45

Good morning everyone!!! Are you ready to see one of the latest collection from Graphic 45...
When I first seen the Vintage Hollywood Collection I couldn’t help but fall in love with the Epherema Card that said “Shine Bright Like a Diamond”.
We should all want to shine bright each day!!!!

Adding small metal frames, labels, etc. will help bring your eye to a word, phrase or photo.

It also lets your eyes advance to that particular focal point on your layout or projects.

Fussy cutting multiple layers and placing them on pop dots gives great dimension.
I gives fabulous dimension to your projects.

It is so inspiring to remember that we are all diamonds, some rougher than others but all being molded each day through trials and challenges. We just need a reminder to always need to let out “diamond” shine."

Fussy cut the pretty images from the pattern paper will give you those extra matching embellishments that we so desire to have included on our projects.
Layer with pop dots...
Tip flowers at the petals
Adding small die cuts will all give your projects lots of dimension!

I hope you are inspired to grab some of Graphic 45 Vintage Hollywood and make some amazing projects. Stop over and check out my teamie Kathy over at Kathy by Designs she is sharing Portrait of a Lady layout on her blog today. Hugs Pam
