Graphic 45 
Seasons Card 
Three Tier Pop Up Cake

Hello dear G45ers! 
Excited to share with you my project for 
this month #G45PopUp featuring the lovely 
Seasons Collection. This collection is
 just perfect for making cards. I must say this
 was quite a challenge as I rarely make pop up cards. 
I think this is my second one...however 
I did have a lot of fun putting this together.

Herewith the Supplies and Instructions you 
may use to recreate such a project:

Graphic 45 Supplies used:
Seasons Collection 12x12

Other Supplies:
Sizzix Die Cake Three Tier 3-D (Pop-Up)
Poppy Stamp Die Powell Butterfly
Poppy Stamp Die Luxe Poinsettia Outline
Various other Dies 
White Cardstock
Gold Cardstock 
Sequins, String, Eyelet
Scoring Board
Adhesive Foam Squares
Red Double Sided Tape
Glossy Accents

Cut a 6x6 card from white cardstock and
score in half. Cut a piece to mat from the
 8x8 collection pattern sheet to fit the card.
Tip: Cut the mat piece a little smaller
 leaving border after adhering. It just
 looks prettier that way.

Cut a few die cut shapes using the various other
and G45 metal dies from the collection sheets,
white and gold cardstock.

Cut the three tier pop up cake using the 12x12
collection pattern sheet and die. Colours optional.
I also cut some extra flowers to add to the cake.
Tip: If you have this cutting die the instructions 
for assembling are included otherwise if you 
are like me and misplaced it here is 
a video link you can follow...

Tip: Remember to adhere your pieces 
with a strong double sided tape.

Adhere two brads to the ornate keyhole with 
glossy accents.

Add sequins to the center of the butterflies.
Adhere the ornate key hole with glossy accents.
Tip: I prefer using glossy accents to adhere 
metal pieces on paper ensuring it won't fall off.
Alternatively you can also use a heavy body gel.

Mat the wording piece from the 12x12 collection onto 
white cardstock leaving a small border. 
Add an eyelet and string to the chipboard piece.

Layer all your die cut elements and adhere 
with adhesive foam.
Tip: The foam gives the elements
dimension. I sometimes add two pieces 
on top of one another to give it that extra raise.

After assembling the three tier pop up cake
 adhere to the center of the card and follow the 
last step as per the instructions.

Add the flowers to the cake. I only adhered 3.
Tip: Make sure that you adhere them in 
such a way that it will move easily with the fold.

Add some more die cut elements on the inside of
the card on both sides for decoration. This will
compliment the center piece.

Prima Lavender Frost
Mixed Media Canvas 

Hello dear friends!
Mixed Media Canvas featuring the 
beautiful Prima Marketing Lavender 
Frost Collection!

I love the soft pink and purple tones in 
Lavender Frost, this collection is so pretty 
and so versatile. I created this Mixed Media 
Canvas using the beautiful stencil in one 
of the flower packs, White Gesso and the 
Impasto Pastels for my background...these
 new colors are divine! I made a few die cuts
 for layering using the collection sheets and 
added lots of those pretty Prima Lavender 
Frost flowers. I finished it off with some beautiful diamond, vintage melange and sequins.

Prima Lavender Frost
Pillow Gift Box 
'Oh Hello'

Hello dear friends!
Another pretty project for Prima with
another pretty collection! 

Lavender Frost must be one of my favorite 
collections thus far. I have made a cute little
 Pillow Gift Box with a Tag featuring the 
I used a cutting die to cut this out but if you 
don't own one you'll be able to find a 
template on Pinterest here
The flowers in this collection are AMAZING, 
I added just a few small ones and 
some pretty purple string through the hole of 
the tag and around the box to keep it in place. 
These boxes are super easy and quick to 
make for a simple yet sweet gift.

Prima Georgia Blues
Page Layout 

Hello dear friends!
So excited to share my first project as a
Prima Marketing Design Team Member.

Georgia Blues is such a beautiful and 
elegant collection with all its gorgeous 
touches of white gold elements. To showcase 
the beauty of it all I decided to create a layout.
 For my background I used a stencil and light
 paste, this is one of my favorite pastes to use 
for texture besides white crackle. I also love
 to add paint splatters to my projects. 
Layering and butterflies is my thing and I 
enjoy doing this with die cuts. I added 
some ephemera, tickets and chipboard
 pieces and lots of Georgia Blues gorgeous 
flowers for the finishing touch - what is a 
Prima layout without Prima flowers, right?!
