A look at some Layouts from Graphic 45

Here we have some more layouts and cards using the Once Upon a Springtime range from Graphic 45.  I hope you were able to pick up a July Monthly Pack, as there is much to feel inspired about when looking at all the gorgeous Storybook papers.  Just have a browse and check out all the wonderful projects the girls have been doing.
Furry Friends by Sally Clark (CT)
This is a perfect example of minimizing the busyness of the papers, just by using the reverse sides.  Still within the same colour range, Sally has added some Glimmer Mising and stippleing to created the slightly webbed background. The layered bunting looks great, and the handcut birds are an added touch.  Sally's "Fancy Fanny" flower (thanks Belinda!) has a scalloped edging, and compliments the colour scheme.  The fussy cut vine and leaves has been mounted and spruced up witha bit of Dimensional Magic.
Gorgeous little birdies...
Fancy Fanny with Pink Pearl button, and fussy cut vines.
A little more punching and layering of the flowers gives them a bit more lift.  The Glitter Chocolate Chip alphas blend in nices with the range also.
 Fairies in my Garden by Sally Clark (CT)
There is but no end (no pun intended...) to the fussy cutting and distressing of this range.  Starting in one corner, Sally has worked her way around the border, giving it a very distressed frame.  Added to this is layered fairies with glitzy wings, fussy cut flowers and a some punchies added to some flourishes framing the photo.

I must say I love what Sally has done with the latte webbing, it looks great stitched and gathered.

A glitzy fairy.
Nice work once again from the Creative Team, and so nice to see such variations in their creativity from one project to the next.  Be sure to grab a pack and give it a go.

Thanks Michelle...sure is hard to find pics to suit this cute range with only boys but it is amazing what one finds when you go through the boxes of old pics.
