Graphic 45 Time to Flourish Stand-up Calendar

Tuesday, January 6th, 2015

Today I have a fun and simple project featuring Graphic 45’s Time to Flourish paper collection.  The project is a stand-up calendar and can be used on a desk or table.  Here are some pictures —

You will begin with A-2 cards — 5.5 x 8.5″.  You’ll need to score and fold each of them.  I used the cut-apart pages and the floral pages from the Graphic 45 8×8 paper pad.  For each month, I cut a background layer from the “words” page (on the back of the floral page).. Then I selected several of the pieces from each month’s cut-apart pages to decorate that month’s calendar page.  Some of these you’ll be able to cut with a paper trimmer, and some will need to be cut  by hand (so you don’t waste any of the little elements).  You’ll decorate the inside of the first A-2 card with January and February, the second with March and April, etc.  Nothing goes on the front or back of the A-2 card at this time.  Here are some pictures

You’ll also need to select a small calendar online that you can print out and put with each month.  There are many different styles available — some black and white and some color.  Be sure to select a calendar before adhering the cut-aparts — there are so many different sizes and shapes available.

The last thing to do is to make the front and back covers.  These will be separate, and will be attached to the calendar in the last step.  I cut two pieces of black cardstock 4″ x 5.25″ (layers nicely on an A-2 card), and two sheets of off-white cardstock 3.75″ x 5″ to layer on the black.  The “Time to Flourish” on the front and the two flowers on the back are from the Time to Flourish stamp sets.  As an alternative, you could simply cut other pieces from the floral or the cut–apart pages.  Here are the covers —

I also added a list of the 2015 holidays to the back calendar page for ready reference.

It is so easy to assemble this.  I started with the 4 middle pages (March/April through September/October), and I attached these on top of one another using Scor-Tape.  The edges should match on each card.  I then added the ribbon around the spine of the four pages.  The video explains much more clearly how I did this.  The last steps are to add January/February and November/December.  Then I tacked the ribbon on each cover, and attached the cover pages with Scor-Tape.  It is just that easy!  Please see the short video for additional information on assembly.

Graphic 45 Time to Flourish

Wednesday, November 19th, 2014

Karen N here from Craftily Yours!  Happy Friday everyone!  I am SO excited today to be sharing with you a special project using the NEW Graphic 45 Time to Flourish Collection.  These papers, die cuts, chipboard are SO vibrant and fun.  The papers are themed by month and are perfect for creating fun calendars and for other year-round scrapping or cardmaking projects.  Seriously.  You HAVE to check this stuff out!

For my project, I used a of the Graphic 45 Mixed Mixed Box,the Graphic 45 Time to Flourish 8×8 paper pad, and the Graphic 45 Time to Flourish 6×6 Patterns and Solids and Solids along with dies, twine, gold paper, ribbon and lace to create a super fun keepsake box.


Inside the box are 6 “coaster-sized” cardstock pages.  With the month/calendar theme of the Time to Flourish, I decided to decorate each side with a different month of the year.  Then, I can write down important dates to remember and keep it all together with inspirational quotes and other fun keepsakes.

Before I go on, be sure to check out the video that shows all of the pages up close along with a sneaky-peeky of all of the FUN that is offered by Cut@Home with the Graphic 45 Time to Flourish Collection!

Sizzix Step-Ups Cards

Friday, October 24th, 2014

It’s always fun to create and give cards that have different folds or flaps to them, something other than just a straight cut and fold.  Sizzix has created a whole line of dies called Framelits that allow you to create cards with these additional folds and today I’d like to share the Step-Ups Card.

Step Ups

I followed the Instruction sheet staying as close to the suggested design as possible.  If you’d like to follow along you can find the PDF here.  You can see from the photo that the card gives you 3 steps to put sentiments or embellishments on.  In this case I used the flowers cut from the Sizzix Framelits Die Set: Basic Step Ups.

Step Ups-003

You can achieve this darling little tag and sentiment by using the complimentary Sizzix Framelits Die Set w/Stamps: Tags and the Sizzix Clear Stamps: Birthday.  All of these Framelit and Stamps sets were designed by the super talented Stephanie Barnard.

Step Ups-008

Look at the difference you achieve by just changing up the paper and embellishments.  Here I’ve made the perfect birthday card using Graphic 45‘s Time to Celebrate papers. All of these cards fold flat for easy mailing and fit a standard A2 size envelope.  You can reverse the folds on the card base to have your steps on the left instead of the right (I’ll show you this in the video).  You can also use the inside as the pretty side if you want something a little different.

Step Ups-017

Christmas is just around the corner and wouldn’t those on your Christmas card list love opening their envelope to find a card like this on the inside?  If you come join me on the video I’ll show you the whole process step – by – step and also give you a few more examples to inspire you to create your own Step-Ups cards.

Graphic 45 8×8 Matchbook box “The Witch”!

Friday, October 24th, 2014

Hello! I love this time of year. I love to make fall themed, or Halloween projects! Today I am sharing just that…a Halloween decoration. I have used the Graphic 45 Matchbook box 8×8.

Screenshot_6 They also come in 12×12 and 3×5. They take ink, stain, or paint so well. I first gave mine 2 coats of black acrylic paint. Mostly painting the edges, knowing I will be covering them with paper. I then used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out my paper, first inking everything with Tim Holtz Distress ink in Black Soot. I used prints that I had  in my stash. I adhered the papers down with Mod Podge, in Matte finish.

Most all my cuts were using the Cameo (design #’s will be below). I cut the witches legs out in black, then added the top piece in orange. I made the witch a skirt, using Crate paper (party streamer). I love using Crate paper in projects. It was very simple. I used a piece of scrap paper in black, added double sided tape, and pleated the paper across, making 3 rows, and fluffing them up. I then used black feathers, and added them in between the layers. I love how it turned out, and was so easy. I made a broom, which is suppose to be a broom covering a sucker. Instead, I used an orange-wood stick as the handle. You could also use a skewer, or even a popsicle stick.

I cut the witches hat from black cardstock as well, and patterned paper & adhered it to the top of my box, with several flowers.

I used a couple of handmade flowers, and the rest were Wild Orchid Craft Violet roses.
I added a spider, using two layers to give it more stability. Added a spider web in the back. The pearls on her shoes were white, by Recollections. I used a permanent marker, to color them black. I also used a “Haunted house” ticket stub and added that within the flowers. I adhered a Tim Holtz Plaquette in the number 31…as it was fitting for this project.

I added a keyhole that I had in my stash, and a creepy looking owl. The owl was Gold. I used the same black acrylic paint to add a coat of black, followed up with silver paint. Added 2 yellow rhinestone eyes, and it was complete. This was fun to make. I think it will look great sitting on a shelf, or my coffee table. I hope you give the Graphic 45 Staples line a chance…they offer lots of different items to alter.

Here’s a video showing the process of how I put this box together:

Graphic 45 Mixed Media Box, using Tim Holtz Wallflower

Wednesday, October 15th, 2014

Hello! I’m so excited to share my project with you today! I am using a Graphic 45 Mixed Media Box in Ivory. These also come in black, and kraft. This box is 5×5, and has a window in the front. It has a magnetic closure on the side. I’ve already decided I need lots more of these boxes in my stash…there are so many things that can be done with this box!! A mini album would look great in this, an accordion album, or simply a trinket box.

G45 box pics 001
I used a black acrylic paint, and gave it two coats. I love how easily these take paint, no priming necessary.

G45 box pics 005
The paper I choose is Tim Holtz Idea-ology Wallflower.  I love this paper!! In this 12×12 paper stack, it includes 4×3, 3×3, 6×6 & 12×12. I was able to use the 6×6 patterns, which looked great on this box. I simply traced the inside window, and cut it 1/8″ larger, to frame the window. I inked all the edges, using Tim Holtz Distress ink in Black Soot. I’ve also added a G45 Shabby Chic Door Pull.

I wanted this to be a shadow box, therefore I kept the window open. It would be a great place to add transparency, or lace.

I added lots of pretty flowers from my stash, and a beautiful saying that I printed out. The recipient can add a 2×2 photo, next to the quote, if they’d like.

This really makes a great decorative element to a shelf, or a coffee table. This would also make a great box to hold an album, or a great wedding gift, with the couples picture in it.

Hope this inspires you to give one of these boxes a try! Thanks for stopping by! If you’d like to see a video showing how I put this together, please see below:

Graphic 45 Matchbook box and accordion mini album

Wednesday, October 1st, 2014

Happy Wednesday! Today I’m sharing my Design team project for Cut At Home. I used a Graphic 45 Matchbook box (small). It is 3×5 & 1 1/2 tall. Cut At Home also sell’s these in 8×8 & 12×12. This is such a quick & fun project.

matchbox pics 002matchbox pics 005


I first gave it a coat of Antique white paint. These boxes take paint, or spray very well. I added my paper with Mod Podge.


matchbox pics 007 matchbox pics 010


To add an accordion album to the inside, I took a 6×6 pad of paper by Prima…the Printery collection. I cut them to 4 3/4 x 4 3/4, scored them at 2 3/8 & glued them together. This little album will hold 2×2 or 2×3 photos. I used Tim Holtz Black soot Distress Ink to all the edges.


matchbox pics 013 matchbox pics 015


I then added seam binding to hold the album together, and it fits perfectly inside this box. Added some flowers, pearls, and trim from my stash. This little box can be used to hold embellishments, or lace, or whatever you’d like!
This was a super easy, and fun project to make! Cut At Home has lots of beautiful papers to choose from that would also look great on this Matchbook.
Here is a process video where I share how this came together.

Products used:

Graphic 45 Matchbook Box: SKU:4500542
Tim Holtz Distress Ink. Black Soot: SKU:TIM19541

Items from my stash: Mod Podge, trim, flowers, pearls, key charm, paint, seam binding.
