That goes without saying the quality of Graphic 45 is second to none!! I can tell you that I LOVE working with both of these manufacturers products. Look at the incredible marriage of art these two companies can help you create!








I am so tickled with how this banner turned out! Now... where to hang it! :)

My darling friend, I have a confession - You have used May Art Ribbon - you just didn't know it. :p That blue striped ribbon I sent you many moons ago in a ribbon swap...that was May Arts. :D Anyway, I love love love your projects! The banner is amazing...I can see something similar hanging in my craft space very soon...or soon after we move. ;) Wonderful work my friend!

  10. I've been following your artwork thru the Graphic 45 blog for a while now and i've been so inspired. I may try to make a Christmas tin of my own but with pictures from the past since my youngest child will soon be turning 30. I've worked on albums about Christmases past but they take so long and I get discouraged. This will be purfect cause all I'll need for each year is one or two good photos and some journelling. I've been really into altered objects lately anyway. Thanks!

I have been following you by email for awhile and have been watching as you started with your videos as well. I am in awe of your talent and always come away inspired by what you have created. In answer to your question of where to put that pretty banner, how about my house?!!! ;-)

    Seriously, the Christmas tin was genius as well and I think it would make such a lovely and thoughtful gift for people to be able to collect their cards through the years. Will you be posting a tutorial on how you made these projects?

    Finally, thank you for adding your own "blog candy" and chance to win to the blog hop, that is super sweet and generous of you to do. If I should be lucky enough to win you can reach me at scrapgirl1467 (at) yahoo (dot) com.

    Have a wonderful day!

  156. You always make the most beautiful creations, but I think you have outdone yourself this time! LOVE the beautiful banner, especially the little timepiece 'buttons' and was 'oohhing' and 'ahhhing' over the banner when I saw the tin and cards! Brilliant and gorgeous!! Love the idea of making this a family tradition and what a wonderful gift idea for a newly married couple! Fabulous creations!!
