Dressing up a kraft gift bag with Graphic 45 Gilded Lily!

Wednesday, July 29th, 2015

Hi there! Thanks for stopping by the blog today!

I’m dressing up a plain kraft gift bag using the beautiful Graphic 45 Gilded Lily collection!

2015-07-27 19.12.49 2015-07-27 19.12.54  929050This is a great way to give a gift…and so simple. I purchased the bag from my local dollar store.

download This paper collection is stunning!

After distressing my edges using Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Vintage Photo, I used the Angel Craft Tape in the 1/4″ to adhere my paper to the front & back of my bag. I added some beautiful lace to the top of each side of the bag…trimming it with flat-back pearl trim.

2015-07-27 19.11.49  This die from Spellbinders is so unique! It is called Imperial Square, and it has the most beautiful detail to it. It comes with four pieces. The outside piece, an inside piece if you want to make it a frame, and two corner pieces. I used both the outside and inside piece for the front of my bag. I cut it out from the Graphic 45 6×6 collection, using my Sizzix Big Shot Machine.

I backed the inside piece of this die with chipboard, giving it dimension before adhering it down. I first inked the edges as well, with Vintage Photo.

Using a new Sizzix Framelit’s With Stamp die set, I stamped the sentiment “with love” on coordinating paper, and adhered that to the front of my bag.

2015-07-27 19.11.32                       2015-07-27 19.13.18

I knew I needed a beautiful flower, so I used the Heartfelt Creations Arianna Blooms die set, along with my Heartfelt Creations Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit.

2015-07-27 19.11.41                        Front-Digital-20150121162032

The Flower Shaping Kit comes with several tools which help to give dimension to your flowers. I used the large stylus that comes in the kit, along with the petal curler, and ran my stylus in the center of my flowers, which breaks up the fibers in the paper, thus curling up the petals which then become dimensional. This is a very simple & quick way to add handmade flowers to any project.

I used hot glue, and adhered a few of the flowers together, alternating the petals. I added a tiny cluster spray to the center of my flower.

2015-07-27 19.13.14

Using the Graphic 45 Tag’s & Pockets, I added a tiny tag that I signed my name on.

2015-07-27 19.13.05  Here’s a look at the back side of the bag.

I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s project. I have a process video showing how I put this together, if you’re interested, please click on the video below.

Graphic 45 Gilded Lily Card

Thursday, July 9th, 2015

Hello everyone it’s Patti here with you today sharing how fun it is when new products come out, today I’m featuring several to inspire your creativity!

Gilded Lady

Today’s card is a 6×6″ square using Kraft cardstock for the base and Graphic 45’s new Gilded Lily paper collection for the mats and accent pieces.  I used bits and pieces from all 3 sized pads, 12×12″, 8×8″ and 6×6″.  Spellbinders new Shapeabilities Everyday Shapes dies Romantic Blooms 3 and Flower Bundles added the flourishes tucked behind the flower.

Gilded Lady-001

You’ll have to join me on today’s video not only the start to finish on how to assemble the card but also a bonus tutorial on how to make these flowers.  Gorgeous aren’t they?  If you’ve not attempted to make flowers before today’s the day.  I used the new Heartfelt Creations die, Blazing Poppies, but as I confess on the video it’s not a deep edge die like the Tim Holtz Tattered Flowers.  The deep steel cut dies cut your fabrics easier than this die but I wanted this shape so worked with it to cut them out.  Depending on the fabric you use will depend on how much additional snipping you’ll need to do with your scissors if you use the thin dies.

Gilded Lady-002

I wanted to split this sentiment between the front with the ‘it’s not easy’ and the larger ‘to be a princess’ on the inside of card.  When you fussy cut the ‘it’s not easy’ out it’s tiny, perhaps 1 1/4″ so it really would get lost by itself on the front of a 6×6″ card.  The solution is to step it up at bit.  I added a printed border flourish, again fussy cut from the paper, and then layers of cream and pink cardstock.  Each layer was adhered with Angel Craft Podge – semi gloss to glue and a layer over top. When all four layers are together and dry I completed the sentiment by die cutting the tag  from the Spellbinders Filigree Delights die (I love this die set!).  I snipped the edges of the die and slipped the layered sentiment ends under so that it all blends together.  Using foam tape (3M) I popped it all up on the back and with the addition of the bow (which is tea dyed Hug Snug seam binding) it easily fits on the front and most importantly stands out!  Mission accomplished.

Gilded Lady-011

Here’s a sneak peek of the flower we’ll make on the video.  I found a Darice flower at JoAnns and used it as inspiration to make my own.  With discounts my $4.99 flower cost me $2.00.  But by buying 1/3 yard each of linen, and a soft crinkled polyester along with a yard of milliners lace I have enough to make at least a dozen or more flowers, the cost $6.00 and the amount of fun, priceless!  You may even have some fabric scraps just lying around waiting to be altered into flowers for your projects.  All supplies from the store are linked directly below the video.

Thanks for joining me and Happy Craftin’!

Scrapbook Layout featuring Graphic 45 Precious Memories

Monday, June 29th, 2015

Happy Monday! Can you believe that June is just about over! My granddaughter just turned two last month, boy does the time fly! Today I created a scrapbook layout of my granddaughter, my daughter-in-law took this picture the other day and I absolutely loved it, I knew it was going to be my next scrap project.

I decided to use Graphic 45 Precious Memories for this layout, I like the soft colors in this collection and it worked perfectly with my layout. I also used Spellbinders Celebrations card stock as well as a couple sheets from my stash.

This was a fun layout to make. I decided that I wanted to frame the picture with a few different layers of paper. I used the peach floral print “Cherish” for the back ground of the layout. I used the coordinating blue floral print “Pat-A-Cake” for the border and the base frame around the picture. I cut the border strip 1 1/2″ x 12″ and the frame at 6 1/2″ x 8 1/2″. The next frame was cut from Celebrations card stock, it was the medium green in the assortment. I cut this at 5 3/4″ x 7 3/4″, for the final frame I used a green dotted paper, it is from an old retired Graphic 45 line. I cut that piece 5 1/2″ x 7 1/2″, the picture is a 5″ x 7″ print.


I also used a Bo Bunny double dot card stock “Slate Dot” for my layout. I cut a 1″ x 12″ strip and layered that over the floral strip I cut, next I cut three chains from a Sizzix die that I have called Chained. (It is no longer available for purchase at Cut@Home) This die worked perfectly with my layout since it matches the links in the swing on the picture. I used a die cutting machine to cut out the lettering and to create the banners. But even if you do not have an electronic die cutting machine the banners are easy to make.

The layout uses my granddaughters name as the first letter in all the words that I chose to describe her personality. Then I added the flowers and enamel dots to finish off the layout. The biggest tip that I have for scrapbook layouts is never adhere anything to you page until you have everything where you want it. I just lay everything out and move things along as I go, you can also use a magnetic platform and use magnets to hold the pieces down until you are sure of the placement. I cannot tell you how many times that I decide to move something, add something or omit something at the last minute!

Once I have everything just how I want it then I begin to adhere everything down to the page.

Here is a look at the finished page:

I absolutely loved how this layout turned out! It was so much fun!

Here is a list of the products that I used that are available at Cut@Home.

4501093 – Graphic 45 Precious Memories 12″ x 12″ Paper Pack
SCP-017 – Spellbinders Celebrations 12″ x 12″ Assorted Solids
657900 – Sizzix Big Shot


I also used some supplies from my stash, Sizzix Chained Die, card stock, flowers and enamel dots.

I hope you enjoyed my post, until next week, thanks and Happy Scrappin!

Birthday Cards with Graphic 45 Gilded Lily

Monday, June 22nd, 2015

Happy Monday! Today I am sharing a couple of Birthday cards that I made with a new paper line from Graphic 45 called Gilded Lily. I also used dies from a few Spellbinders die sets. This new paper line has a very Victorian feel.


I made two cards, both of which are layered. For the first card I started with a 5″ x 7″ card base. I cut if from a tan colored card stock. I used three different patterned papers from the Graphic 45 Gilded Lily line as well as some of the stickers from the sticker sheet that is available and one of the images from the paper pack. I cut a piece of the pink patterned paper 4 1/2 x 6 1/2, then from the tan sheet of patterned paper I cut a rectangle shape using the largest die from the Valiant Honor die set, from the blue patterned paper I cut an oval shape from the Elegant Ovals die set, I also cut a shape out of the pink patterned paper from the die set Family Favorites, which is a Sizzix die set. I also cut one of the ladies from the paper pack and two of the vines from the Spellbinders Romantic Vines set.

I inked the edges of all of my pieces, then I assembled my card. I adhered the 4 1/2 x 6 1/2 piece of card stock first, then I layered the other pieces by size, I added pop dots to the last shape and the lady as well as the phrase from the sticker sheet “Let them Eat Cake”. I added the vines, a border from the sticker sheet to the top and bottom of the card and finally a little bling.

Here is a look at the finished card:

Card 1

For the second card I used the same paper. I used a Tim Holtz on the edge die for this card, the die I used is called Distressed Doily. I cut 6 die cuts, two of each color of the patterned paper. I also fussy cut the shape “Let them Eat Cake” from a piece of the card stock. I cut two of the longest vines from the Romantic Vines die set. For the card I used a 5″ x 7″ base. I inked the edges of all my pieces with coordinating distress inks. To assemble the card I found the center and lined up the two blue doily cuts, then I layered the pink and tan doilies under the blue doily, I trimmed the doily die cuts to fit the card. I added a strip of lace tape from my stash to the center of the card and along each end. I used pop dots to adhere the sentiment to the center then I adhered the vines, I added some roses that I had in my stash to finish it off. Here is a look at my second card:

Card 2

I really like how the cards turned out with all the different layers, I also like the way that the ink makes the different layers pop.

Here is a list of the items I used that are available on the Cut@Home website.

4501136 – Graphic 45 Gilded Lily 12×12 Paper Pad
S4-531 – Spellbinders Romantic Vines dies
