World's Fair Card

For my latest card I wanted to experiment a little more with layers.
I have been getting braver and been learning to be ok with covering things up on my beautiful Graphic 45 paper.

For this card I decided to use the gorgeous World's Fair paper.
I love the bright colors and the intricate designs. I have used this paper for a few other cards, so I used a mix of scraps and sheets from the pad.





I cut out several different elements from the paper for this card. The background layer is made up of three different papers and distressed. The third layer is popped up with pop dots for extra dimension.  Tip for using different images from the paper, just because it isn't a complete image doesn't mean you can't use it! The flowers at the top were cut from the edge of a paper sheet, and I just covered the cut edge. Same for the tickets, I just tucked them up so you couldn't see it wasn't a complete image.
It took me awhile to get everything arranged like I wanted it. Once I did I used a combo of pop dots and score tape to adhere everything. After it was all down I added some stickles for some extra pizazz.

  1. I like your tip about using incomplete images, I tend to forget I can cover them up.

Graphic 45 Design Team Audition 2016

So it's that awesome time of the year when Graphic 45 has their design team auditions!

So my name is Altina Robinson, and I am 24 years old from Springfield, MO.
I was introduced to Graphic 45 when I was I believe 16, and the Steampunk Debutante collection was phasing out (I have both the 12x12 and the 8x8 in my stash.)

I have been into arts and crafts since I was a little kid, and was introduced to paper crafting when I was about 15. It started out with scrapbooking, which turned into card making, which turned into art journaling, and well, you get the point.


So for my first project I found a Tim Holtz mini clipboard at Michaels and knew I HAD to do something with it. So for this project I used the new Voyage Beneath the Sea collection.
I love this collection ( I LOVE steampunk) and I love all the bright colors.







For my second project I made a birthday card with Botanical Tea for a friend.
I am a bit obsessive about my scraps, so I have them all organized by collection.

Feel Better Shaker Card

Hi everyone!

Today I am sharing my very first shaker card!! I have been watching all kinds of videos on shaker cards and I have just been so inspired to make one myself. So I went to Michaels and Joann and bought everything I would possibly need for fillers (hooray for coupons!!)

I was inspired to do a get well card for the 6th challenge on the Lawn Fawn Fanatics blog.

I used the Baked with Love and the Treat Yourself stamp sets for this card.





I am so happy with the way this card turned out. I love the colors, and I LOVE the shaker element. I will definitely be making more of these cards in the future!!

If you want to see how I made this card please check out the video below:
