Kathy has a brilliant card for us today with this new collection. What gorgeous colors and layers! Love this!

 

Beautiful Person Birthday Shaker Card, Midnight Masquerade, by Kathy Clement, Product by Graphic 45, Photo 1

"I have fallen in love with Midnight Masquerade!  The vibrant colors, whimsical images and vivid patterns are so inspiring.  The playful vibe of this fanciful collection really lends itself to specialty cards like this easel style shaker card that sets the stage for a beautiful birthday celebration.  " ~Kathy

Tip: To make the shaker element on this card, I used acetate cardstock and 3/16” wide clear foam tape.  The foam tape was attached around the perimeter of a 4” x 6” image from the collection.  I filled the space with an assortment of sequins, beads and glitter.  I cut the acetate to size and then pressed it over the clear sticky foam.  Instant shaker box.  To finish it off, I used a craft knife to cut the frame off the matching image and glued it in place with glossy accents.  

Tip: To make the stopper for your easel card, try gluing a bow and flower cluster over a panel made from border strips.

Tip: I don’t usually mat my images on brightly colored cardstock, but for this whimsical card, it was the right move.  It ties all the various colors together, and also prevents the design from becoming muddled.

Maggi shares a meaningful layout with us using Portrait of a Lady! The absolute beauty:

Mema layout, Portrait of a Lady, Maggi Harding, Graphic 45 (1)

"Portrait of a Lady is such a beautiful collection and so perfect for those vintage photos of you family.  I chose a photo of my Grandmother taken sometime when she was younger than I remember her, but, I love this photo for it shows that she was a very pretty lady and I think  quite fitting to use with my title "Portrait of a Lady."  I fussy cut a frame from one of the collection photos.  It's so vintage and looks so great with my photo!


I like to mix fussy cut flowers with my 3D flowers.  I think that brings the paper and 3D flowers together.  Tip:  Use foam dots or squares and pop up your fussy cut flowers and leaves, it adds dimension.  Diecut flourishes also are great to use in your floral clusters.  Pop those up too with foam." ~Maggi

Now, how about a project idea? The amazing Maggi Harding shares an awesome Square Tag album with this incredible collection! Take a look:

Sq Mini, Olde Curiosity Shoppe, Maggi Harding, Graphic 45 (6)

"Isn't it great that Olde Curiosity Shoppe has been released again as a Deluxe Collector's Edition?  I put together a really fun mini using the redesigned Staples Square Tag & Pocket Mini.  I know you'll love the new mini; the design has been improved so that the pages will lay open.

Because this mini has so many pages (18, that's 36 pages counting front and back!) I kept the inside rather simple.  The first thing I did was cut thirty-six 5.5" papers and then glued them all in the mini.  For the pocket pages, I cut the 5.5" sheets to fit the pocket  pages and mixed up the paper designs so that the pockets were a different paper than the corresponding back of the page.  At this point, all the pages have a base that I can build on.  After cutting all those 5.5" pieces I had a lot of strips leftover that I knew would work well as accents on the pages.  I used those strips along with some fussy cut some elements, and some cardstock scraps,  to embellish all the pages.

The mini also has hidden pockets that holds a square tag.  I papered those and looped a twill ribbon through the grommet and tied it off with a bit of jute twine.  I diecut some smaller tags and inserted those in the small pocket flaps.

I did a video walk through of my mini so you can see all the pages, there are way too many photos to post on the blog!!" ~Maggi

Kathy Clement shares a gorgeous easel card using this new collection. You will love the tips she has below for this gorgeous project!

Simplicity Easel Card, Portrait of a Lady, by Kathy Clement, Product by Graphic 45, Photo 4

"I love it when wisdom and beauty can be found in the same place, don’t you?  The new Portrait of a Lady collection from Graphic 45 is filled with dozens of gorgeous images, enticing colors and richly patterned papers.  The typography pages are also brimming with wise and inspiring sayings like the one featured on this simple easel card: 'Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.'  How true!" ~Kathy

Simplicity Easel Card, Portrait of a Lady, by Kathy Clement, Product by Graphic 45, Photo 4

Tip: Create a “stopper” for your easel card by backing a border strip with cardboard packaging or foam adhesive.  

Tip: Give those “hard to use” letters from your Staples Kraft Alphabet Banner Tags a new life as a design element in a card! I traced the tops of these tags (Q and V) onto designer paper.  ( Paper saving tip: No need to cover the whole tag, as only the tops will be seen. ) The decorative edge is a quick and easy way to add beautiful shaped layers to your card with a minimum of work.

Simplicity Easel Card, Portrait of a Lady, by Kathy Clement, Product by Graphic 45, Photo 4

Tip: I backed the focal image with cardboard packaging material to raise it up from the card base.  This creates depth and dimension, and it also makes the image stand out.

Tip: My sentiment panel is die cut from the paper collection and glued onto a die cut doily.  To make it stand out, I “framed” it with vintage trim.


Simplicity Easel Card, Portrait of a Lady, by Kathy Clement, Product by Graphic 45, Photo 4

Tip: Don’t have ribbon to match your papers?  Make your own!  I used a couple of drops of Tattered Rose Distress reinker  (a perfect match for the vintage pink in this collection) on Ivory Seam Binding ribbon.  Spritz liberally with water and squeeze to distribute the color all through the ribbon.  Then dry with your heat gun and tie a bow.  Easy peasy!

“It is always fun to go to the thrift shop and see a piece that needs some love. I found a shadowbox frame the last time I went ... the paper was torn from the center and I knew it need some a bit of tender loving care to bring it back to life. So keep your eyes open as you’re going through flea markets, thrift store or even at your local craft store; you might see something that just needs some love, some time and some paper.” ~Pam
