Through the Seasons Frame with Graphic 45

“It is a sad day for me…. two years and through two sets of Seasons I have enjoyed and loved every minute of being part of the Graphic 45 Team/Family!!! I will never forget the morning two years ago when I woke up to all the congratulatory post, emails and text! I thought I was dreaming when I saw my name on the Graphic 45 Team list and still keep pinching myself over the opportunity to be able to design for such a fabulous, loving and creative company.  The Graphic 45 designers are all so wonderful and I love the new friendships that I have made with them and with the Graphic 45 community!  I say goodbye to being a Design Team member but I will always consider myself part of their family, so they aren't going to get rid of me easily, lol! It has been an amazing, creative journey and I feel so honored and privileged.  Make sure to follow me as I continue my creative journey and will share my creations with them and you.  Thank you Graphic 45 for such an amazing, creative time!” Pam

“I love taking chipboard and creating frames. My last post for the Graphic 45 Design Team I am going to share an easy chipboard frame. You will need a piece of 11” x 11” and 10” x 10” chipboard to create the “Through the Seasons” Altered Frame. What better way to finish by term with the Graphic 45 team but to celebrate the seasons …they went by quickly and this project will be quick to recreate. “Pam

Cover chipboard with pattern paper to create frame pieces

Dad...My Heart and Soul Card with Emerald Creek Supplies

I am 
sharing  my  "Dad...My Heart and Soul Card for the Emerald Creek Supplies "Guy Style" Challenge! First, my guys are all a bit on the grungy side, lol. They love working in the yard, messing with cars and tools, hiking, fishing and anything outdoors. So my "Guy Style"  first of all means a salute to all the men in my life. I couldn't help but to create a Dad's  Day Card since it is in June, plus it gives me a chance to play with Emerald Creek's Seth Baked Texture and some a the Vintage Timepiece Stamp. 

Begin by creating your background by stamping the Vintage Timepiece on white card stock using embossing ink. (Mask the top of the timepiece off to just get the watch part.) Apply Baked Texture Dirty Sand; heat set.

Ink embossed paper with distress inks. 

Distress edges of pattern paper, black card stock and embossed paper. Adhere pieces together; adhere to top of card base. 

Emboss die cut pieces with Baked Texture Embossing Powder. 

Distress pattern paper and card stock mats; wrap with twine. Tie into bow. 
Add to top of card with pop dots. a
Place sentiment to top of card front. 

Adhere embossed Umbrella Man to top of card.
