Faber Castell & Graphic 45 Blog Hop: Day 3

Gilded Lily Double Photo Layout, Gilded Lily, by Danielle Copley, Product by Graphic 45, Photo 1

It's Day 3 of our awesome Blog Hop with Faber-Castell! We are so excited to be hopping with this amazing company and their awesome designers. Today, Danielle Copley, Brit Sviggum, and Robin Shakoor have beautiful projects to share using Faber-Castell. The fun continues!

First, Danielle shares a gorgeous layout using Gilded Lily.

"This layout was a perfect way to “dip my toes” into the world of Mixed Media. I have always been fascinated with mixed media but intimidated by the gorgeous projects I have seen and the multitude of supplies that go into making one. This layout uses Faber Castell’s Whipped Spackle and Pastel Gelatos to add a touch of the mixed media world to my background design and with Graphic 45’s Gilded Lily, it was a great combination for trying something new!!

Tip #1: Find a project that inspires you and choose one or two new products or techniques from it that you admire and try them out!

Tip #2: I loved using the gelatos mixed with water and a paintbrush to color to some white mulberry paper flowers to coordinate with my project.

Tip #3: Added a little too much color to your project with gelatos or sprays? Tone it down by dry brushing on some gesso!" ~Danielle

Now, how about this amazing canvas by Robin? What a stunning project!

"I created a canvas using Faber-Castell Gelatos to create my background.  I began by adding gelatos to my canvas in the areas where I wanted to add color.  I then applied water to the Gelatos and rubbed in the color.  I added additional water to create a series of soft drips.  Once my background was created, I added loads of delicate layers to frame and accentuate my photo.

Tip:  Use mediums to create a one-of-a-kind background.  You can use stencils, fibers and various art mediums to add a special touch to your projects.  Try experimenting on plain cardstock and save your techniques to create a journal you can refer to for future projects." ~Robin

 It's Day 2 of our fabulous blog hop with Faber-Castell! Did you enjoy hopping yesterday? To our new visitors, welcome! We are so glad you hopped on over to our blog. So much inspiration awaits today - Tanya Dudkina, Donna Espiritu, and Lori Williams have it in spades. Enjoy these beautiful projects and stay until the end to hop on over to Faber-Castell's blog!

First, we have this amazing, textured layout by Tanya using Artisan Style and Faber-Castell gelatos! So gorgeous!

"Hi! I created a layout with my favorite tip. It’s really easy - I applied a bit of white gesso on one part of my layout, let it dry and then I chose my favorite Artisan Style stamp to make nice background. Now you can use your gelatos by Faber Castell to color your stamp just over the layer of gesso. Do you like this effect? I think it looks pretty original with this gorgeous paper! I also applied amazing Faber Castell whipped spackle and I love how it works with my embellishments." ~Tanya

Now, Donna has the most precious canvas to share. Take it away, Donna:

"I created the background by using a stencil and whipped spackle. Once dry, I rubbed a bit of gelato to the surface and misted some water for easy blending. I used my heat gun to help reduce drying time. Then I rubbed another color of gelato (from the steampunk set) to the raised areas to make it pop even more. I fussy cut lots of beautiful images from the papers of the Gilded lily collection and arranged it around my photo. I also used a stamp from the Precious memories collection for my title and around the photo as border." ~Donna

"I love perusing through thrift stores and finding things that can be updated to make new and fun creations.  This is a box I picked up and adorned it with the Gilded Lily collection and it’s quite stunning now.  I made these beautiful flowers using Faber Castell’s gelatos and gesso and even created a tutorial so you can recreate them yourselves.  The box certainly looks regal with pearls, rhinestones, shimmer and lots of fussy cutting.  Now the trick is to figure out where to display this beauty.

First, enjoy this gorgeous layout from Arlene! She has a great video tutorial below as well. So gorgeous!

"This is my all time favorite photo of my beautiful baby niece Jaelyn. I never get tired of creating with her as my inspiration. I created the background of this layout using Faber-Castell Gelatos and Whipped Spackle. So fun to play with! The Once Upon a Springtime papers were a JOY to create with. I love all the flowers and fairies and whimsical images. Be sure to check out my video tutorial where I show you how I created this page. I hope you give one of these layouts with mixed media background a try for yourself. If you do, be sure to share it on the Graphic 45 Facebook page! We’d love to see it!

TIP: Gesso your surface before working with Gelatos. This will ensure you get a smooth blend after your spritz the medium with water." ~Arlene

It's the Spellbinders Summer Road Trip Partner Hop with Tutorials from Graphic 45!

  Gloria-11

Welcome to the Spellbinders Summer Road Trip Partner Hop! We are so excited you're here. We are going to jump right into the fun because Annette Green and Gloria Stengel have 2 excellent projects for this amazing hop. There's also a fabulous giveaway! Enjoy hopping along.

PartnerHopBadge_Final

First, Annette shares a fabulous mini album and Mixed Media Box using Spellbinders dies!

"This Summer my husband and I will be traveling with friends to South Carolina and I thought it would be fun to create them a mini album and Mixed Media Box to store it in as a little “Thank You” gift for joining us. I used Home Sweet Home in particular because I also plan to collect recipes and make note of places we eat, as well as places we visit. The Spellbinders dies were fun to layer and play around with, and with my new Sapphire machine it sure made easy work of embellishing my project. Hope you enjoy!" ~Annette

Now, let Gloria show you how to make a brilliant Raining Cats & Dogs mini album!

"Good morning, Graphic 45 Fans! I have the amazing honor to be one of the featured Graphic 45 Designers in the Spellbinders' Partner Blog Hop!


I was given the Spellbinders Sapphire Numbers and Letters One die templates set and the Fancy Corner set to work with, plus I am using the Graphic 45 Raining Cats and Dogs Collection for my project.

 


I decided to create a little mini album from two paper bags...and to make it a brag book about my cats! This album is approximately 3 1/2" x 7" and is adorable in a black, red, and teal color scheme!

 


Here is a another view, with the cover "untucked." I just adore how this turned out. It is perfect for adding a few photos and some journaling. This is the sort of project that you can customize by changing the theme and using alternate papers or color schemes. I love the Spellbinders Sapphire letters that I used to spell out my album title. (The capital "M" is approximately 1/2" tall.)

 


The gorgeous Graphic 45 papers, paired with black accents and the black die cut shapes make for a stunning project!

 

I bet you want to know how I made this little mini, right? Well, here goes!

 

 

You need two black treat bags, approximately 3 1/2" x 6 3/4" each. You can purchase these treat bags at your local chain craft store in the gift wrap section.


Lay Bag #1 so that the bottom fold is to the left. Place Bag #2 so that the bottom fold is on the right. Score Bag #2 at 1 1/2" and 2" from the bag opening. Score lightly, as you will GENTLY fold the bag to make the right-hand "spine."

 

 

Place some double-stick tape on the back of the opening of Bag #2. Slide Bag #2 into the opening of Bag #1, up to the first score line. Use a circle die or punch to create a cut out tab into Bag #1 as shown.) I actually went back with a Spellbinders Circle Die and cut a larger opening, as you can see below.)

 

 

Gently fold the bag on the score lines. The end of Bag #2 will tuck under the left flap to form a closure. 

 

I wanted to add a bit more to my bag book, so I created a flip page from some black cardstock. Cut black cardstock to 3 3/8" x 5". Score on the short edge at 1". Place double-stick tape on the small flap. Tuck the cardstock flap into the opening of Bag #1 to form a flip page.

 


Cover all surfaces with Raining Cats and Dogs papers. I used the 8x8 paper pad for my project. The open mini measures approximately 3 1/2" x 12 1/2". 

 

 

I decorated the "flap" of the cover with Spellbinders corner dies, flowers, and Raining Cats and Dots chipboard and a sticker. I topped the chipboard tag with a twine bow. 

 

 

I decorated the cover with more flowers and chipboard, plus a few items from the Raining Cats and Dogs Banners. I spelled out "My Cats" with the Spellbinders Numbers and Letters One die cuts. 

 


With the cover open, Bag #1 becomes the fist page, and it is also a pocket page. You can see that I used the Spellbinders Nestabilities Standard Circles Small Dies to cut out the opening on the bag to make it easier to slip in some tags. I used the Sapphire Fancy Corner Set to create corners for the journaling tag. 

 


I tucked a few Graphic 45 Black Artist Trading Tags into my bag pocket. I covered the tags with paper. I had a little fun by trimming out the word "cats" to cover the word "dogs" so that my second tag reads "raining cats and cats"! {giggle} You can tuck some photos into the bag pocket as well. 

 

 

The next page is the cardstock flap that I made. The chipboard accent holds some tags, or it could hold a photo. Place adhesive on the left side of the chipboard, then slide your tags and photos under the right edge of the tag.

 


I used foam squares to pop the cat chipboard tag off and act as a holder. 

 

 

I created another tag holder by popping the mini tag with foam squares. I tied another twine bow to decorate the tag. I used another of the fancy corner die cut shapes under the mini tag.

 

 

The last page is actually Bag #2. The bag bottom creates a flap, which I used as a journaling spot and photo holder. I "crowned" the chipboard piece with one of the Spellbinders fancy corners. 

 

 

This paper is just beautiful! I love the red and teal flowers, and the black accents. There is a lot of paper in this collection that can be used for projects not about pets! I love how versatile Graphic 45 papers are! 

 

 

The back of the album is covered with more of the Raining Cats and Dogs paper.

 

Make sure to trim a small strip of paper to cover the spine, as shown above.

 

I hope you enjoyed this little project. Thanks for looking!" ~Gloria

Today, we are sharing beautiful projects using Times Nouveau from the amazing Nadya Lifa and Andrew Roberts. You are in for a treat!

First, we have this gorgeous card from Nadya using Times Nouveau. The layering and ribbons and florals are just so stunning! What an elegant card.

"This stylish and elegant Times Nouveau collection so inspiring to work! This card is very multilayered! The more layers you have, the more volume becomes - it's my golden rule! It is also very interesting to use a lot of different elements in the cards: paper, cut parts, chipboard, metal and resin embellishments! Try to work with different elements, do not forget to pick them up by color and you will create the most beautiful designs!" ~Nadya

Gorgeous card by Nadya Lifa using Times Nouveau! Love the gorgeous layers and florals. Wow! #graphic45

Next, we have this fabulous altered double mixed media box from Andrew using Times Nouveau. What a great gift for his wife who also loves to craft! We love this awesome project.

"My wife Jennifer loves to sew and craft. I decided the Graphic 45 mixed media boxes would make a great storage idea. I made this project to help my wife store her haberdashery items. I thought the vintage fashion and other images were a great combination for this project.  Joining two boxes together worked really well and gave double the storage.

Tip: My tip this time around is to join the mixed media boxes together and discover the possibilities. Try the other graphic 45 boxes as well and let your creativity become inspired." ~Andrew
