"My aunt (my mother’s sister) moved to Sweden several years ago, so we don’t get to see her often. When she recently was in the Netherlands, I took this picture of my mom and her. I decided to scrap it as a gift for her and used her favourite colours on my lay-out: orange and yellow. On this lay-out, I combined the wonderful Rare Oddities and Children’s Hour collections.

Supply List:

Children’s Hour papers: September Montage
Rare Oddities papers: Charmed I’m Sure, Cabinet of Curiosities, Random Relics

Our kitty Beertje is very lazy and she just loves to hang on the couch in the way she does in this picture. Isn’t she sweet? I thought that a red/purple/yellow colour scheme suited this photo best, so I choose a few papers in this colour combination from both the Rare Oddities and the Childre’s Hour collection to work with. I also used a lovely chipboard tag from the Journaling Chipboard package. The image of the cat on this tag complemented my photo just perfectly.

I always love making Christmas cards and it’s never too early to start working on them. I used the beautiful December papers from the Children’s Hour collection to make this card. I also cut out several elements from the papers and use them to decorate my card.

I love the fact that Graphic 45 papers often have lovely butterflies printed on them that you can perfectly cut out and use to decorate your projects. For this tag, I layered several papers and die-cuts on top of each other and used butterflies as a finishing touch.

As much as I love making Christmas cards, I also enjoy creating projects for summer. So I took out a few summery papers from the Children’s Hour pad and used them to create this card. I cut out the lovely butterflies from the papers.

I love the fact that you don’t need much more than papers when working with Graphic 45’s products. For this card I used the papers from the Rare Oddities collection. I also did some fussy cutting and adhered the fussy cut elements with foamtape to make them stand out more.

Red and blue is one of my favourite colour combinations, so the July papers from the Children’s Hour paper pad have totally got me smitten. I made this summery card using wonderful papers, die-cuts and chipboard pieces from this collection." ~Romy
