About Pam Bray:
My name is Pam but my closest friends call me Pammejo. I am a wife, mom of 4 and grandma to 8 very amazing grandchildren if I must say so myself. I have been scrapbooking for the last 15 years. I am super excited to have been asked to be a Guest Designer for Graphic 45 today and I hope you are inspired by my projects. Graphic 45 is favorite paper company when it comes to doing altered projects but I love to use it in my card making and scrapbooking also. The last two years I have been published in Scrapbook & Beyond, Altered Arts Magazine, Paper Creations, Scrapbooking.com, Scrapbook News and Review and Ready Set Create. I am also looking forward to projects being published in Paper Creations, Create and Decorate and Cards in the Spring 2013. I love Diet Coke and chocolate so they must be close at hand when I am creating. I enjoy traveling with my husband of 39 years along with our yorkie “Charlie” and cat “Gracie”. When we travel I always take my scrapbooking with me since we travel in an RV.
Pam's Blog Scrapbook Flair
Letter "T" - love hidden compartments and fussy cutting.
Make sure to always look for details on the paper, you never know when you can make a fabulous embellishments, like the "fairy charm" I made using an Epiphany charm and bubble cap.
Here we have a beautiful Bird Song Layout with hidden tag and fussy cut lanterns by Pam. This LO is a true celebration of the remarkable beauty of Asian style and culture. Look at how perfectly that central photo matches the colors in Bird Song! All the handmade embellishments also look incredible in this tranquil LO. It so lovely!
Now it's time for some fun holiday themed crafts that Pam made! Here is her Happy Haunting Birdhouse! This is such a fun creation! You can see how beautifully she covered this birdhouse in Happy Haunting paper and also added some fun metal embellishments and fussy cut characters. All the cute and quirky fun of Halloween really comes to life in this adorable creation. We also love that it's on wheels, so if the birds don't feel like flying they can just cart their house around town with ease. What a great sight that would be! So cute!
