The Clearsnap & Graphic 45 Blog Hop: Day 2

  School time - Graphic45 3

Welcome to Day 2 of our awesome blog hop with Clearsnap! There is a great giveaway and tons of inspiration this week. Today, we have three awesome ideas from Brit Sviggum, Ginny Nemchak, and Katie Zoey Ho! Day 2 is going to be a blast.


First, Brit has a genius layout to share with you today. We are in love!

"This month my daughter will start in 1st grade at school.

She is very excited, and keep asking what she has to remember and how she has to behave.

I think she`s a bit worried that it will be a big change from kindergarten. But she also feels like a big girl, and is very proud.

Here in Norway they go one day at preschool before the summer holiday, and she liked it a lot. The picture is from this day.

I have used lots of cut outs from the “An ABC Primer” collection papers, together with gesso and colored cheesecloth. I have also used the great Decades inks from Clearsnap together with Cling Stamp G45 Artisan Style 2 and Cling Stamp G45 Artisan Style 3.

"I’m the newest fan of Decades Inks by Clearsnap Colorbox for Graphic 45. I super love the warm rich colors that coordinate perfectly with my Steampunk Debutante Card. I used the inks on the edges of the papers and on the petaloo flowers.  Steampunk is such a classic design theme..it’s whimsical and fun and a delight to work with!" ~Ginny

Now, how about this altered laboratory by the amazing Katie? What a fantastic idea!

"Dr. Drake has an interesting lab oratory - a lab chapel where he concocted all his finest herbal and insects poisons. Beware as you enter his lab and don’t get freaked out by the huge Exhibit A entrance! He has most of the deadliest delights, charms, potions, herbs and notions… And you will be amazed by the gigantic Sands of Time in his movable herb garden.

Created this little lab oratory by breaking the box away from the ATC book box. I re-attached the box at the back using strong magnets so that the hourglass can be turn and flip over, making it more fun to play and view this little lab.
