The Petaloo and Graphic 45 Blog Hop: Day 5

  Donna-Espiritu-G45Petaloo-Blog-Hop-ChildrensHour-layout01

We can't believe it's already the last day of the Petaloo blog hop! We have had so much fun with our designers and their designers collaborating with their beautiful flowers and Graphic 45! Today, Donna Espiritu and Lori Williams close out the hop with absolute gorgeous ideas!

First, Donna uses Children's Hour to make a stunning layout. This is just so gorgeous!

"I used the February papers from the Children's Hour collection for my layout. Believe it or not, I used 2 12x12 papers and 1 6x6 paper only. I didn't even use the whole 12x12 papers. With strategic layering, I was able to maximize the papers. And the Petaloo flowers coordinated really well. I just love those little velvet blossoms!" ~Donna

First, enjoy this gorgeous Valentine's Day card from Danielle and try it yourself with her tutorial below!

"With the month of love fast approaching, I felt inspired by the fun imagery of the Children’s Hour Collection to make a shabby chic Valentine’s Day card. I love distressing the paper edges with my scissors to give it an extra vintage touch. Layering the images and using foam adhesive gives this simple to make card a more complex feel- perfect to give to someone you cherish!" ~Danielle

"'I Say a Little Prayer for You' - made this prayer’s house out from the die-cuts of Eileen Hull’s canister die to house this little fairy. I’m not really a fan of purple, but the purplish velvet Petaloo flowers has won my heart. So…. I ended up using purple as the main colour for this prayer’s house. And it does light up which made it a little wonderful companion in your bedroom. " ~Katie

Now, enjoy this beautiful card from Ginny using Children's Hour. So gorgeous!

"This Lost in You Card created for the Petaloo~G45 blog hop was inspired by the gorgeous purply Petaloo flowers. They pair beautifully with the Children’s Hour Paper Collection.  I knew I wanted to have one large focal image so I flipped through the paper pad and found the sweet Mother and child image on the February sheet and knew it was the one! Layered over the purple side of March Montage from the 8x8 paper pad it’s the perfect centerpiece for this garden of gorgeous blooms. There’s a bit of ribbon and twine to soften the edges and perfectly accented by very well altered chippies. I think through all the years I’ve been crafting with Graphic 45 products..this is my very favorite card." ~Ginny

To close out the day, we have a brilliant Valentine's Day layout from Arlene. Take it away, Arlene:

"I created this 12x12 “Love” layout of my husband and I using Graphic 45’s Children’s Hour paper collection. I love the little sentiments available on the papers “Our hearts are light, they sail with ease… Side by side in love’s fair breeze.” The February sheet from the 12x12 Calendar pad was the perfect background for this page and the Petaloo flowers matched perfectly!

Tip: Use the border strips from the design paper and dimensional foam to add an element of dimension and layer to your layout. This will naturally draw the eye to your photo. Cut-out images like the postage stamps to add another layer to accent your photo." ~Arlene

The Petaloo and Graphic 45 Blog Hop: Day 2

  Box, Children's Hour, Maggi Harding, Graphic 45 (1)

Are you having fun on our blog hop yet? We sure are! Today, we have two beautiful ideas from Maggi Harding and Brit Sviggum using Petaloo flowers and products and Graphic 45. You will fall in love with these beauties!

First, we have this magical Children's Hour Valentine's box that holds special gifts! Take it away, Maggi:

"I love this sweet little box that holds Valentine coupons and a gift card.  The coupons are great to give someone a gift that they can "cash in" later like a movie date, or for a parent, a delivered home cooked meal.  A child would love a coupon they could cash in for an ice cream date or a trip to the toy store.  I've also included a couple pockets where you could tuck in gift cards.

I added a hinged lid to the box that opens to reveal the message, "Will you be my Valentine?"  Of course, nothing is complete for me without lots of flowers and I've used Petaloo's gorgeous Botanica and Chantilly blooms.  They compliment  my February

Love's Month box so well and add the perfect finishing touch!" ~Maggi
