First we wanted to share some of our recent adventures with all of you. Last weekend Aimee and Charee joined the wonderful folks at Clipper Street Scrapbook Company in beautiful British Columbia, Canada. They had a magnificent time teaching at this two day event and meeting so many fabulous people. In this photo is the talented Ken Oliver from Unibind and the lovely store owners, Stacey, Lori and Deanna, along with Graphic 45's Charee and Aimee. Clipper Street held a contest where they asked their customer's to bring in the favorite Graphic 45 projects. Together Aimee and Charee picked out their favorite project. The winner was Heather and her amazing Little Darlings altered art box. Below you can also see Heather's winning project. So beautiful! Also pictured are Heather, Charee and Aimee posing with Heather's wonderful Little Darlings altered art box. What fun!
And now it's time for some more fabulous altered art! Both of these projects were created by Denise Hahn of our design team. You can see some wonderfully creative ways to make stunning altered art out of simple items. This first creation is a gorgeous altered jewelry box. You can see how brilliantly A Ladies' Diary looks with this vintage jewelry box. It adds so much glitz and glamour! Denise did an amazing job of layering lots of beautiful embellishments to add depth and dimension to this stunning project! Here is what she had to say about it!
"I have been saving this vintage jewelry box for a special occasion and what better occasion than new a new paper line from Graphic 45! This was so easy to make, I just created templates for the windows with tracing paper and used tiny amounts of tacky glue to attach them. Then I created flowers with Ladies Diary paper and embossed them with gold to match the box. Then I dove into my real vintage buttons and trinkets to complete the box." -Denise Hahn
