Winter Seasons Wreath with Graphic 45

Disclaimer Notice: I’ve received products/compensation as part of the Graphic 45 Design Team. This project however, is 100% my own project! Some of the links in this post are affiliate links. I explain more here.

“Do you love quick and easy projects! Graphic 45 Seasons Collection has just made that possible! You can create fun wreaths through the seasons by using Graphic 45 Season’s 12 x 12 Paper Pad and Seasons 12 x 12 Patterns & Solids Pad, some chipboard and a good pair of scissors to create them. So now is the time to get started with creating a Winter Wreath that can be hung on the wall or framed to create a collage as you make the other seasons!” Pam

Draw and cut 8" chipboard circle; draw a 6" circle from center. Remove with xacto knife. This will create your wreath form. 

Run chipboard wreath/circle through Xyron Creative Station; add paper to top of adhesive. 
Trim with xacto knife; sand lightly. 

Repeat adding pattern paper to back side of wreath. 

Punch 3" circle from Epherema Card along with a 3 1/2" background circle.
Adhere to center of wreath. 

Fussy cut two sets of images from pattern paper. Layer together with pop dots. 

Adhere miniatures to top of wreath. 

Add bow to front of wreath with more of the miniatures. 

I hope you are inspired to create some beautiful and easy seasonal wreaths using Graphic 45 Seasons Collection! Pam

1.      Chipboard can be confiscated from cereal boxes, packing/shipping boxes. So save them for future projects.
2.      Keep seasonal florals, decorations and other products in seasonal color tubs for storage.
3.      Add bows to project to add depth to projects.

Frosty Winter Christmas Cards, Gift Bag and Tag with Authentique

Disclaimer Notice: I’ve received products/compensation as part of the  Authentique Design Team. This project however, is 100% my own project! Some of the links in this post are affiliate links. I explain more here.

Good morning all our Authentique Fans! Have you seen Authentique fabulous Frosty Christmas Collection with matching 12 x 12 Coordinates Papers!!! OH MY....GORGEOUS...DROOLING over the hues of purples, blues and greys!

I love to have gift bags on hand over the holidays and what better way but to create a few ahead of time. Today I created "Keep Warm and Snuggle Up" Gift bag with matching tag to share with you. Begin by layering different size pieces of the Frosty Winter pattern papers randomly on a 8" x 10" white gift bag. (I used the scraps from the cards I made below to create my bag.)

Decorate with stickers from the Frosty Winter Detail Sheet.

Add scallop borders and scallop circles behind a few of the stickers from the Frosty Winter Detail Sheet. Add to prepared bag with pop dots.

Stamp and color flower with markers; fussy cut out and layer together with pop dots. Add flower soft to center.

Add "Keep Warm and Snuggle Up" to coordinates paper. Add to top of bag.

Add a few more stickers to bag and gemstones.

Create tags with pattern paper and stickers. Add twine ties and gemstones.

"Walking in a Winter Wonderland Card " and "The Most Wonderful Time of Year" card are created to go along with the gift bag or to just send out on their own. If you look closely both cards both cards are created with the same elements.

Add chipboard frame to front of both cards. Stamp and color flower image; layer on coordinates paper. Add to front of die cut scallop frame and place on front of card with pop dots.

Add stickers from Frosty Winter Detail Sheet  to top of scallop circle place on card front along with border die cut and gemstone.

Create your "Them Most Wonderful Time of the Year..." using the same elements as above.

For the flowers just make more of the and fussy cut the leaves and stem from them. Add to front of card with pop dots. Add flower soft to centers of flowers.

Add twine bows to both card fronts. I hope you are inspired to grab those wonder Christmas Collections from Authentique to create gift bags, tags and cards to have this holiday season. Pam
