Now, how about some original Rare Oddities projects from Diane's Workshop? We're in love!

"A top hat decorated in Rare Oddities. Brews and Potions paper is used as the band around the hat. This cut apart page has so many different graphics to choose from. Butterflies and flowers are made using Charmed, I'm Sure, Brews and Potions and Articles of Antiquity. There are so many owls on the Ghostly Greetings page to fussy cut and birdcages with crows. It's hard to decide which graphic to use. Ribbons and a leather flower along with a G45 key finished it off nicely!

A potion bottle is covered with a cut part from Articles of Antiquity and tied with ribbon and a clock face. Enjoy!"

Get a great idea from Diane's workshop with this fantastic new collection! Love how this was created:

"Begin with a G45 12x12" Matchbook Box. Spray inside and out with black spray paint. Decide how you want your Apothecary Project divided inside. I took mine from inspiration from the signature page. Tape your dividers in place with G45 Washi Tape. Then get creative with the background papers in each box. There are so many different pictures to choose from for a fussy cut. The Articles of Antiquity page has a page full of book spines that can be layered on top of any of the other papers. I used little scrap pieces of balsa wood and modpodged them on. The outside of the box was covered with Charmed, I'm Sure paper. Then I started looking for some of my own Rare Oddities around the house to place in each box. The top of the box is a piece that I found at a flea market. Always keep your eyes open for interesting little architecture pieces. They can be a great addition to your art. It is covered with Charmed, I'm Sure and parts of the signature page. Then a few more fussy cuts for layering. Enjoy!"

Now, let's see some beautiful projects with Gilded Lily! All of these come from Diane's workshop and will be sure to get the creativity flowing! First, we have a stunning altered crown using this new collection.

"Make a pattern for your crown ...there are a few on Pinterest...the base paper is from Golden Age. Then glitter was added to the edges. The bottom of the crown was covered with pink tulle that was gathered a glued with a matching ribbon layered on top. Then a few flowers and ladies were fussy cut and layered with flowers from Petaloo. Every girl needs a crown!"



Stunning details on this handmade crown using Gilded Lily! This beauty is from Diane's workshop. Find this collection in stores in late May #graphic45

Take a plain cardstock crown and make a Gilded Lily masterpiece! See this beautiful project on the blog. Find this collection in stores in late May #graphic45

Next, we have these glorious projects - a beautiful album and altered  clock from Diane's workshop. We are in love!

"This is one of G45 new albums. It is covered with Golden Age and the signature page was cut out and placed on the cover with ribbon and flower embellishments. Crime de la Creme was used on the inside covers.

The two example pages for the album used the stripes from the back of the signature page and Her Majesty as base papers. They were then layered with Royal Gardens and Tres Chic. The cut apart pages offer many cute cards and invitation postcards."
