Stamperia “Atelier” Mini Album

Always looking for new paper collections and found this one a Scrap N Create Retreat last year. Stamperia is new to me, however, I immediately fell in love with the beautiful paper designs and colors. I will put a link to the website below this post.

I designed and created this mini album to be used in a portrait or landscape version. It features two tags per envelope page for lots of photos and journaling.

#G45Album Challenge Project: Rotating Explosion Album Using “Baby 2 Bride”

I designed and created this pyramid album using the beautiful Baby 2 Bride Deluxe Collector’s Edition from Graphic 45. The papers, chipboard elements, and sticker sheet are so exquisitely designed and lent to the overall look I was going for in the project design.


As equally as beautiful are the paper flowers and crystals from Prima Marketing Inc. which also lent to the design elements I envisioned as I was pulling the components together.

I finished the majority of the page edges, chipboard, and album embellishments with Tea Dye Distress Ink from Tim Holtz/Ranger. I wanted to achieve a delicate edge to compliment the designer paper.

#G45Album Challenge Project

For this design project I chose the beautiful tropic themed Tropical Travelogue paper collection from Graphic 45.



I used the 8×8 paper pad that comes with a variety of cut-a-parts. Additionally, I used Prima Marketing Inc Opal Magic and Metallique Acrylic Paints, Liquitex Gesso and Light Modeling Paste. The hardware for the wooden box comes from AliExpress, and the two wooden trays that I used for the album box came from Michael’s Stores.

The 4×4 mini album features (3) fold out pages with pockets designed to hold photos, memorabilia, or tag. I used bits of the designer papers and cut-a-parts for additional elements.

Getting March Home Decor Ready

Getting the front entry window ready for March.

Silhouette Design Store Numbers:
Design #75408,75409 – Snapdragon Snippets Medium and Large 3D Shamrock with stand

Design #55883 – 3D Bunch of Clover

Used the Shamrock Collection from Authentique (gifted to me by the awesome Ginger Ropp from @My Sisters Scrapper). 😊

Wreath complete.

March door wreath is done. I used Design #2032 for the welcome. Resized it to fit the wreath base.
Since I already had a green foam wreath, all I did was add two strips of white fabric, some faux vine, glittery foam shamrocks, and lucky coins. I made the bow and tails from the same white fabric and added green ribbon to tie it all together.


#G45offthepage Challenge Project – Redesigned Rotating Guest Towel Holder

For this month’s Graphic 45 Challenge #G45offthepage, I took a guest towel holder (the “off the page element”) and converted it to a scrapbook photo display. I will be posting a tutorial/walk-through soon, so keep checking this blog or my YouTube channel.


This project came to life because of the gorgeous Steampunk Debutante Deluxe Collector’s Edition papers, chipboard and sticker elements from Graphic 45.

I used a lot of Prima Marketing Inc. pastes and paints, and mini frame. Other elements are from Tim Holtz, 7Gypsies, Craftsmart acrylic chalk paint, and Finnabair Art Stones.

PhotoPlay “Vintage Girl” Lighted Vignette Shop Box

I designed this box vignette using the lovely paper, sticker, and ephemera collection, Vintage Girl from PhotoPlay Paper.


The base of the project is from a Graphic 45 Book Box and Tag set. In the photo below, you can see that I already started to draw the lines for where the window cut out will be.


I wanted this project to be really feminine and girly, so I kept the pink and black them with the added bead charm I crated using some pearls from Tim Holtz’s Baubles and pieces from my jewelry making supplies. I added ribbon from Melissa Frances and black tulle from my sewing supplies.

For a special and unique touch, I incorporated a small battery-operated light at the top of the box to illuminate the pretty scene inside the box. I used stickers from the paper collection along with acetate strips to give the illusion that the items inside were floating or on display.

The Graphic 45 tags came together by using the Graphic 45 tag die to mat each tag. I then selected papers and cut a parts from the paper collection to create the tag elements.

Mint Tin Redesign – #G45Stamp

I designed this “steampunk” art piece for the #G45Stamp Challenge for the month of January.

I used a mint tin as my base, added some hardware, and used bits of the gorgeous Graphic 45 “Steampunk Debutante” papers. I used a variety of pastes and Art Stones from Finnabair ArtAlchemy to distress the tin.


The embossed stamp is from a collection Hampton Art did with Graphic 45. Not sure where I got it, but the stamp I chose worked great.
