Graphic45 "Fairie Dust" - A Round Storage Box and Album

Hello dear all!

When I saw the designs of the “Fairie Dust” collection, it was love at first sight. The patterns and the graphics were so special, as well as the colors, that I wanted to create an equally special project with this collection.

So here is my round storage box, created from scratch out of medium weight chipboard, with a matching circular shape album inside.

The box is 9” in diameter and 4.5” in height. It has 2 compartments, one of which holds the album, and the other one can be used for storing more pics or cards or other knick-knacks.

The album has a fabric cover and I did my best to match its color to the tones of the paper.

Graphic 45 Little Women - A Tiny Album in a 'Mixed Media' Box

Hello dear all! 

We all love not only making mini albums but also putting them in boxes.This has never been easier to do than with the Graphic 45 mixed media boxes, matchboxes & book boxes. Pick up a collection, pick up a size of the box and you are all set.

For my today’s project I used the 5X5 mixed media craft box and embellished it with the paper from the gorgeous new collection - ‘Little Women’. 

If you want to have a look at all of the collection, you can do it here, on the Graphic 45 official blog.

A tiny mini album (only 4.5X4.5”) is hiding inside the box. I love the combination of yellows, blues, greens and reds in this collection. And those flower clusters are simply breathtaking! 

To match the box and the album, I made a simple card using the same paper collection.

We are all very excited about the new collections and can't wait to see all the wonderful projects that crafters around the world will create with it. 

Thanks for stopping by.

A Miniature Pillows' Pile - Home Decor

Hello dear friends!

I am here today with some 'I Am Roses' inspiration.

A while ago I came across an Instagram account of a very talented crafter. She creates the most gorgeous sewing projects, and so inspiring too!

I am not a sewer, no! But I saw a really cute pile of pillows on Irina's Instagram and thought that I could make myself something similar, to put on a bookshelf in the studio. So don't judge too harsh, here is my pile of miniature pillows, embellished with the 'I Am Roses' flowers.

Here are a few close-ups:

The largest pillow is a 4.5" square, while the smallest is 2 3/4". 

Here are the links to the flowers that I used:

Thanks for watching and a great day!
