Little Women a Favorite Novel!

Graphic 45 has this wonderful new line of papers using one on my favorite novels!  Here are the cards I created for my class this week!

Love the new Graphic 45 clock face die!

 Graphic 45 works wonderfully with an easel card. 

Found old pen nibs, great for the writer Jo!

The new Graphic 45 flower die is awesome!

NUVO Crystals were used for the flower centers.

Pocket on a card is the perfect place to stash a gift card!

A little pendant created with flowers from Little Women. 

One technique we did in class was create a faux enamel pen to use as an embellishment.  We fussy cut the pen, then using VersaMark and clear embossing powder applied 3 to 4 layers of embossing powder.  

New ways to use the amazing chipboard pieces. 

Leaves from the Graphic 45 flower die set over a doily!

I am thankful for all the wonderful papers from Graphic 45!  Maybe they will create "Gone with the Wind" "Jane Austen" "Charlotte's Web"or "Tom Sawyer".  Maybe "1700 Royals" or the "wild west".

Happy Mother's Day

A few vintage images from my collection!

"Ladies Bible Study on Mothers Day 1928" is written on the back!

Family sitting on the porch! 

Family on the patio!

On the back is written " Heinrich Handwerck and family".  I wonder if it is the same family that produced the now collectable bisque dolls in the early 1900's?

Happy Mother's Day to all mothers everywhere!
