I have another Graphic45 layout for you. (Yes, I said LAYOUT!) The Graphic45 Design Team was sponsored by Elizabeth Craft Designs. We received some of their Shimmer Sheetz to play with. Ok, we got a ton of stuff to play with! This is just the tip of the iceberg! Anyway, I used A Proper Gentleman and Hallowe'en in Wonderland papers to make this layout. The silver border at the bottom is made from one of the Shimmer Sheetz.
I trimmed the sheet to about 2x10 inches or so. Then I used a Cuttlebug Embossing Folder to emboss the design across the strip. The Shimmer Sheetz take the embossing very well. After I had embossed, I rubbed the strip with alcohol inks and Staz-On ink to "grunge it up" a bit, as these are very shimmery and I wanted to tone that down some for this layout. I used a Heidi Swapp date stamp to stamp the date, using Staz-On ink.
I trimmed out one of the Alice images from the G45 Hallowe'en in Wonderland papers, and then accented it with a Tim Holtz pin and some cardstock sticker words. I think these are a combo of Scenic Route, Making Memories, and I forget who else. Some of these have been in my stash for ages. Just shows you that your new stuff can play nicely with your old stuff!
