Graphic 45 
Hot Air Balloon 
'Spread your wings and Soar!' 

Hello dear G45ers! 
Sharing a Hot Air Balloon featuring the
 beautiful Imagine Collection! I had this 
project idea in mind a while now and I am very 
pleased with the outcome. The colours and 
patterns in this collection are really pretty 
and the I think these gorgeous papers
 and my project go hand in hand.

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

Other Supplies:
Various other dies
Martha Stewart Punches
Metal Chain
Brown Cardstock
Flat Back Pearls
Brads and Eyelets
Red Double Sided Tape
Soft Gloss Gel

I used my Silhouette for this project... 
Hot Air Balloon by Nilmara Quintela 
Design ID 193648
Assembly Instructions:

Cut a Hot Air Balloon from brown cardstock
 and the12x12 pattern sheets and assemble 
accordingly. Add washi tape to the balloon 
and bottom piece.
Tip : Use red double side tape to adhere the
 balloon. This makes assembly easy and will 
prevent it from falling apart. 

Cut a few bows and assemble.
Tip : Curl the two bow strips forming a curve 
using the back of pencil or similar object. 
This makes folding the end pieces
 together a little easier. 
Fasten with a brad.

Fussy cut a few elements from the 8x8 
pad and mat onto brown cardstock leaving a
 small border. Add eyelets to each.

Cut a few die cut shapes and fussy cut 
some butterfly elements.

Cut two borders from the pattern sheets 
and punch the edge on one side with a border punch.

Cut a few paper rosettes from the pattern sheets.

Add the metal keys to the rosettes and 
metal brads to the centre of the 2 big butterflies.
Tip : Adhere the metal pieces with soft
 gloss gel ensuring they stay in place.

Add the metal chain to the bows.

Graphic 45 
Twelve Days of Christmas
Christmas Cards

Hello dear G45ers! 
Happy to share with you my  project for this month 
#G45Card. I made two Christmas Cards featuring 
the stunning Twelve Days of Christmas DCE!

I used lots of cutting dies to create these
pretty cards. I enjoy die cutting from paper
and using these as layers on my projects.

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

Other Supplies:
Various Dies
Embossing Folders
White Cardsstock
String and Sequins
Glitter Swirl Embellishments
Soft Gloss Gel

Cut a card from white cardstock measuring
 20 cm x 11 cm and score in half.

Cut a piece from the collection sheet to fit the cards
leaving a small border. Add washi tape along the side
and adhere to the card.
Tip: Cut a long strip of the washi so that it overlaps
and fold it over the pattern piece before adhering.

Cut a few die cut shapes from the collection sheets using
cutting dies. Cut a square piece from white cardstock and
emboss using an embossing folder.

Layer all the elements before adhering.

Add the metal embellishments adhere with soft
gloss gel or glossy accents.

Add the string to the big flower first and then 

Add the collection chipboard elements and glitter
swirl embellishments.

Prima Lavender Frost +
Moon Child Collections
Nov Color Challenge 
Mixed Media Canvas 
 'Dream Passionately'

I love this color palette for our color 
challenge this month such a pretty 
combination to play with. I have decided 
to go with a vintage style Mixed Media 
Canvas and here I combined the beautiful 
Lavender Frost and Moon Child collections.
 Inspired by my fellow teammates I also 
added some puzzle pieces here and there. 
for my background and colored
 it with some of Finnabair's metallique 
and sparks paint. Could not resist to add
 the cute little resin scooter embellishment
 that I have been hoarding forever! I
 finished the piece off by adding some
 texture fantasy rust pastes randomly
on the flowers and embellishments.
