Graphic 45/Want2Scrap/Art Glitter Blog Hop

Welcome, welcome, everyone to the Graphic 45/Want2Scrap/Art Glitter Blog Hop! Whooo Hooo that's a mouth full. Graphic 45 has been putting on an awesome blog hop all week long with prizes galore. If you have missed Mon - Wed and are just joining the hop now you may want to head back to the Graphic 45 blog so you don't miss out on some fabulous prizes and awesome inspiration. If you have come here via Clare Charvill's blog then you are in the right place :)

As a designer for Graphic 45 I am fortunate enough to use their products on a daily basis. I can attest that the quality is is THE best out there! Graphic 45 has just recently launched some new collections that are a must have. Happy Hauntings, Bird Song, and A Ladies Diary offer a little something for everyone.

Here is a card made using Graphic 45's A Ladies Diary collection and Want2Scrap's Nestabling butterflies, and Say it With Pearls. Did you know that Want2Scrap has bling that coordinates with Spellbinder dies? How super cool is that? The pearls were a perfect accent to this beautiful card.




Supplies:
Graphic 45: A Ladies Diary Collection, Metal Brad
Want2Scrap: Nestabling Butterfly, Pearls
Stampin Up!: Cardstock
Martha Stewart: Punch
Craft Store: Ribbon

Next up is my project using Art Glitter products. The glitters come in all colors and sizes. Some of the glitter is super fine and some is very chunky. Whatever you need for your glitter needs they sure do have it. The colors that were sent to me were so beautiful and I knew right away that I had to pair them with Graphic 45's Tropical Travelogue Collection. They were so fun to play with!




Supplies:
Graphic 45: Tropical Travelogue Collection, Lg. Metal Brad, Sm. Metal Brad, Stamps
Art Glitter: Glitter
Stampin Up!: Cardstock, Ink
Craft Store: Chipboard
