Nature Sketchbook "Memories" Frame with Graphic 45

“ “Every Moment You Create A Memory”….this is a motto that was laid on my heart when our son got married and was working all the time. I had to remind him that he was missing out on so many moments, so many memories because he was so busy making a living he forgot to make a life. A life filled with quiet times and times with his family and friends. Moments come and go quick but always remember they always will leave you with a memory!” 
Check out How to Graphic 45 Nature Sketchbook Frame by Pam Bray on Snapguide.







Adhere pretty pieces of pattern paper scraps behind chipboard pieces helps to create layers on projects and to create more interest to your layouts forming creative arched titles is a nice touch.


Using your own handwriting on a project not only adds a nice touch but it will also be a lasting memory

"Ooh La La" Candy Treasure Chest with Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts


Good morning my chipboard loving friends! I am so glad that you stopped by today to see my "Ooh La La" Candy Treasure Chest that I created using Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts Treasure Chest. It is extremely easy to recreate since I kept all the chipboard that I used to embellish in their nature state.


But, first.... start by adding card stock to the base of the Treasure Chest.


Attach sides to base using adhesive; hold together with small pieces of washi tape. Adhere pattern paper to inside of Treasure Chest.


Add pattern paper to outside of prepared Treasure Chest. Adhere small chipboard pieces to sides of Treasure Chest; adhere pattern paper strips to the chipboard strips.


Add beads to the bottom of Treasure Chest to form height and interest to the candy dish.


Adhere pattern paper to Treasure Chest lid.


Adhere Victorian Corners and Stackable Labels Shape Set to top of prepared Treasure Chest,


Add clear bead and bow to top of Treasure Chest.


Fill "Ooh La La" Treasure Chest with candy. Glue flowers and lock to top and sides of Treasure Chest.


Thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope I have inspired you to re-create your own "Ooh La La" Candy Treasure Box or even make a gift box out of it. Hugs Pam

I created a "Love" Card using one of Kelly Klapstein Stamps that Emerald Creek Supplies manufactures along with fabulous embossing powder and charms that are also available in the Emerald Creek Supplies Store!


Mist watercolor paper with water. Spray a mix of distress reinkers or distress spray to top of wet watercolor paper.

Die cut embroidery hoop out of mat board. 


 Apply embossing powder to each part of embroidery hoop using VersaMark.
