Wishing You Peace, Love and Joy Video Tutorial

We have been working very hard to bring you the Christmas designs showcased this week.  I hope that you enjoyed all of our creations and can draw some inspiration for what we have brought to you!


Wishing You Peace, Love and Joy

To create this card I started by simply die cutting a tree shape from this beautiful piece of DP from Studio Calico’s Wonderland Collection.  I then sponged the tree to add some dimension, embellished it using various sizes and shades of green rhinestones and voila…a beautiful focal point for my card!  I also added a piece of chevron DP from the same collection to the card.  But, rather than just adding a rectangular piece of DP to the card, I cut along the chevron pattern on the top and bottom of the DP using my paper snips and I found that this anchored the card!

Graphic 45 Guest Designer: Nicole Eccles

Here is the latest installment of our Graphic 45 Guest Designers. Many of you may remember that back in April we hosted a Graphic 45 Week on the Paper Crafter’s Library Blog. It was week filled with projects and inspiration using Graphic 45′s Tropical Travelogue Collection. We had such a great experience partnering with Graphic 45 and their design team, and such a great response from you, that we’ve decided to partner with them on an ongoing basis. The first and third week of every month one of the Graphic 45 Designers will share a project they’ve created here on the PCL Blog. We started with our monthly designers in June and before I introduce you to our latest Designer, I just wanted to take a minute to re-introduce Graphic 45 for those of you that may not be familiar with the company.

Graphic 45 is an award-winning scrapbook and paper crafting company­— owned and operated by a mother and her two daughters.

Diane Schultz (pictured center)—Designer and CEO (aka mother)

“I’m passionate about being creative and eager to make it possible for others to find their creative voice. My background includes stints as a designer for, McCalls, Simplicity, Vogue/ Butterick, Mattel Toy Company and a host of other jobs that each, in some way, led me to what I do now. At 45 I went back to school and got my degree in graphic design— I named the company to celebrate that achievement.”

Aimee Filimoehala (pictured left) —Director of Operations

“I wear a lot of hats and love it that way. Business, marketing, operations, etc. have made me a pro at multitasking (aka juggling‑figuratively and literally). When we launched Graphic 45 just three years ago we had no idea what was in store, working together as a family has been an amazing journey that we all feel so grateful to be apart of.”

Charee Filimoehala (pictured right)—Director of Customer Service and Design Team Coordinator

“I joined the team a little over three years ago and haven’t looked back…what a life-changing experience this has been. I love working with and around creative people and products (not to mention I like my co-workers quite a bit). I spend my days working with our friendly stores and talented design team…the occasional trip to a workshop or tradeshow pretty nice too.”

Together we create vintage inspired crafting products that capture the flamboyant style of the 1920′s and 30′s - with vibrant color, irresistible texture and imaginative design to create products with decades-old appeal that’s both fresh and familiar. Let our products inspire your next scrapbook layout, card, album or home decor project.

***********

Here’s a picture of their booth at the CHA show which absolutely blows us away every year! The artwork inside is absolutely stunning and totally unique. At the last show as we were speaking with Diane she told us that many of the altered pieces were vintage finds which she and her team transformed with their gorgeous Graphic 45 products. We can’t wait to stop by their booth at the Chicago CHA and see what they’ve got in store this year!

Here’s a picture of the Graphic 45 team - they’re always dressed in period costumes to complement the themes in their collections - every day of the show brings a new set of costumes. The ones shown below were for their Little Darlings collection.

Graphic 45 Designer Nicole Eccles

Our next Graphic 45 Guest Designer for this month is Nicole Eccles who is part of the 2012 Graphic 45 Design Team. We are very excited to share Nicole’s project with you.  She has an amazing project.

You can see Nicole’s fabulous project below, but first, here is a little more about Nicole:

Art for me is a daily part of life.  It is my release, my strength,  and my inspiration.  It has taught me patience, how to let go, and most important, who I really  am.  I feel as an artist, the world around you is seen in a different hue.   Not always marching to the same beat as everyone else.  Maybe you are a  dreamer, or hopeless romantic.  As artists We live in a reality based  world, that is often visited by fairies, strange creatures and all things  magical.  Where pigs really can fly, and anything is possible!
For me, the creative process is something that just happens.  I never  really have a set plan to create anything specific in mind.  Maybe I know  it is a canvas, or a shadowbox, but otherwise I let the papers and images guide  my imagination. Once an idea sparks, it becomes a mad dash to make the vision  come to life, as dust bunnies build up and dinner becomes something just quick  and convenient.  Searching for images, or staining my fingers with inks,  clothes covered in paint and staying up past the witching hour driving to just  get a little more done.  And once I finally do hit the bed, dreams of my creation keep me working  all night long, sometimes to where I don’t feel I have slept at all.  Wake  up, send the kiddo off to school and do it all again, until it has come to  life!

 

With a deep interest for Halloween, and the more bazaar. I have been  inspired by artists like Edward Gorey and Tim Burton. Add a love for science,  architecture and anything mechanical, it was only natural for me to be drawn to  the style of steampunk.

 

These collages are the perfect example of my love for steampunk and all  things funky.  Each one is created on stretched canvas, with a unique hand painted  background by using a mix of Acrylic paints, and adding a touch of shine and  wonder with Twinkling H20s.  Bright colors and imagery pull you into an almost surreal world, where  giant octopus battle with big fish.  Elephants perform in top hats, and  ravens rest about.  This is my fantasy world come to life!

 

Toy Truck Gift Box

 

I’m happy to bring you this Toy Truck Gift Box using Graphic 45’s Small Matchbook Box and A Nutcracker  Sweet.  This fun little project not only makes the perfect little gift box for  all ages, but it also makes a fun little toy! Designed to actually roll, this  tiny truck was created using Graphic 45’s small matchbook box and a little  imagination!

Trendy Tuesday - Non-Traditional Christmas Colours

Trendy Tuesday - Non-traditional Christmas Colours
By Colleen Harshaw

Well, you haven’t ‘seen’ me here at the Paper Crafter’s Library lately, and that is because there have been a lot of momentous things happening in our family!  Firstly, my husband and I took a two week trip, during which time we went first to Thailand and then to Santorini, Greece.  The Greece portion of our trip had been planned for months, as a 15th anniversary trip.  The Thailand part of the trip came up much later as the result of a job offer that my husband received.  So, of course, before accepting the job, we had to go and visit Bangkok to see what it was like.  The end result of that trip is that we are moving to Thailand!

We were only home for 24 hours before Hurricane Sandy hit us here in New Jersey, and then we were without power and other services for a VERY long 13 days.  We are now back up and running, and trying to sell our house.  So, that is why I haven’t been around much!

I plan to continue to write articles here at the Paper Crafter’s Library after our move.  That is the beauty of technology…I can be anywhere in the world and still do the job!

Now, back to business!

The first sample that I have for you today is a card that is made with some pretty bright colours.  Bright colours are a trend that have been talked about here at the Paper Crafter’s Library in the past, and they are spilling over into the Christmas category too!  I actually have two different card samples for you, both of which use the same stamped image as their focal point.  I always find it fascinating how the same stamped image, or even the same sketch, can be used by more than one person and each can make it look so totally different!

Both ladies have used blues, greens and pinks as part of their colour palettes.  I think you will notice a trend with these particular colours this holiday season!

Next, I have another card sample for you.  This card uses some of the traditional reds and greens that we so often see at Christmas time, but they are paired with a couple of different shades of blue and even a mossy looking green, giving the palette a different look about it.

Here is another beautiful card sample which uses some interesting polka dot paper as an accent piece across the bottom.  If you look at the colours of the polka dots, they are all colours that would not typically be associated with Christmas cards!

Lastly, I have a card sample from our very own Andrea Walford!  I love the palette that she has used to create this holiday card.  Even though these colours are not ones that you typically see on a Christmas card, you have no trouble identifying it as such due to the greeting and the snowflake image that she has chosen to use.

For those of you who don’t have time to hand make your Christmas cards this year, even the folks at Snapfish are on trend with this design that they offer on their website!

Here is a scrapbooking layout that uses reds and greens along with golds and (my favourite) pale blue.

I found this next two page layout really fun.  It reminds me so much of Thanksgiving due to the choice of colours, but once you really look, the title and the accents indicate otherwise!  Sneaky!

If you are looking for some further inspiration, you have got to see this!  I found this photo on the Better Homes and Gardens website.  How about adding some fuchsia to your colour scheme this year?!

Purple can be nice too……  How about purple and cream to decorate your holiday table?

OK, now for the product list!  I have a few paper lines to show you today, but keep in mind that many of these lines have other accessories too.

This next line from SEI incorporates some bright colours and some birds.  That bird trend had been around for quite some time now…and I must admit, I am not a fan.  Are those bird ever going to go away?!

And last, but not least, we have this cute line from Kaisercraft.  I am sure there are many more products out there that I haven’t mentioned today, but that means that you now get to have some fun hunting them down!  I don’t want to make it too easy for you to spend your hard earned money.  :-)

Enjoy your creative time this holiday season!  I look forward to ‘seeing’ you again soon here at the Paper Crafter’s Library.  Until next time…..

Thanks For All You Do

I really needed a break from Christmas card designs!  I looked around our studio and found this absolutely beautiful designer paper.  It is so bright and cheery that I wanted to showcase the pattern.  I pulled out my favorite color of CS (Daffodil Delight!), a few coordinating buttons and used my favorite scallop punch. With the addition of the big bold greeting, my card was complete!

October Design Team Project - Canvas Snowman Card

I wanted to create a scene using different textures. There’s texture in the felt snowflakes (Die-namics dies), the snowy acetate and also the printable canvas paper snowman. The snowman is a Hero Arts set called ‘Smiling Snowman’ and I’ve used stamp markers to add colour to the stamp. The papers are cute- from the ‘Happy Days’ set (Papermania). I’ve kept it sentiment-less as you can add a winter sentiment or a Christmas one too. I love the little guy- he makes me smile. The acetate is attached to the inside of the card so the little snowman is actually standing proud away from the card.  There is a video on how to create this Canvas Snowman card in the library for Paper Crafter’s Library members.

I hope you have enjoyed this project.  Stop by my blog to see more of my projects.

 

 

 

 

Darling Angel
