I still need to work on perfecting the art of applying Stickles.
I have an obsession with Graphic 45 papers. I love the vintage images in a huge variety of themes and tend to purchase older and/or retired lines at Tuesday Morning where they are sold in bulk packs of paper for $3.99 each - a total steal! If I cannot wait on the newer lines to be discounted though, I will purchase immediately....Secret Garden for example.
One of my favorite retired lines is Le Cirque. I have had SO much fun with this paper. Below is a mini-album that I made using a Pink Paislee board cover, 4 different sheets of Le Cirque Graphic 45 paper, personal photos, polka dot washi tape, circus stamps, white cardstock, kraft paper and simple embellishments.
|3 Ring Circus - come on see the show!|
| Stamped and colored image of female|
acrobat / trapeeze artist is actually raised for dimension and "swinging" from hemp twine.
I just realized it looks like she is about to kick the little clown in the face......
Ooops! She should be more careful!
|"Ring" in Circus letters colored with distress inks and enhanced with glossy accents|
|Fun "Daring and Death Defying" page to serve as a reminder|
lest you forget what the circus is all about!

|Black and White with color highlights. Left page blank to add journaling. |
The picture was converted to black and white from color and the noses were shaded red with an online editing tool
|Back cover. A little blurry (sorry!)|
Here is an example of a card I made out of the same paper and die cuts. This was layered over blue, plaid and orange glitter cardstock, decorated with a die cut, metal brad and trimmed with tulle ribbon and hemp twine. The envelope is handmade out of an 8x8 page of paper
I have some other card projects that I am looking forward to sharing. Feel free to share links to your own projects!
