Graphic 45 Layout 1

Hello fabulous bloggers!  For my April design team gig at The Scrapbooking Studio, I squealed with delight when the Olde Curiosity Shoppe line from Graphic 45 was given to me to work with!  The papers are so unique and beautiful!  The first layout was a photo of my great grandmother as a young woman.  I liked how the Exquisite Motif paper enhanced the vintage photo.

The 2-piece frame, top border treatment and blue background were cut on the Cricut using Fancy Frames and Elegant Edges carts. The bottom layer of the frame was background stamped prior to layering.  Vintage ivory lace and  blue Maya Road lace were layered below the frame.

Both sides of Race for Time paper were used to make flowers from an EK Success Slim punch - Quilling Carnation and some of the G45 metal flowers were layered in with paper flowers.  There are also some Prima and Petaloo Flowers nestled in.  Blingy brads from my stash filled the flower centers.  Some Tim Holtz swirled die-cut grungeboard, stained with Peeled Paint Distress Stain, were used as vines.  To finish off the flowers and vines, Mister Huey's Color Mist  (from Studio Calico) was spritzed on them.  The color is called "shine."  See below for a closer view of the flowers.

Inks used for this project:  Quick Quotes Baja Blue, Wild Honey Distress, Peeled Paint Distress

That is all for today!  Another layout coming soon!  Thanks for stopping by today and ... Be Inspired!  Jules
