Graphic 45 July Project Sheets - Summer Mix and Mash-up

Hello, Readers and Graphic 45 Fans! It is time to share the July Graphic 45 monthly project sheets! July is called the Summer Mix and Mash-up Project Set!

This month we are using the World's Fair and Children's Hour Collections, along with the Kraft ATC Alpha Banner. This is the first time since I started doing these monthly projects that I have been allowed to MIX the collections!

I used the alpha banners to spell out "ADVENTURE" and then hooked the letter tags together to make an accordion-fold, table-top display! The front shows the word, but the back of each tag is a beautiful "mix and mash-up" summer display!

To print the step-by-step directions for the tag project, click HEREThe project sheet includes a full supply list, plus step-by-step photo directions! Each month, you will be able to create a mixed media project for an approximate retail cost of $30. 

The metal staples option will be about $10 more. The directions explain how to create the project, and then show you how to add the optional Metal Staples items! This month we are using the Shabby Chic Ornate Metal Keys.
The banner folds up for storage or gift giving!
This project is a fussy cutter's dream! You will have a chance to fussy cut all the amazing images from the paper! Keep in mind, if fussy cutting is NOT your thing, you can remove some of the elements and still have a wonderful project!

We always have a card class for you, too!

You get a chance to use up your left-over supplies with a second project sheet for creating three cards! If you want to "add-on" the card class, the cost is around $5. If you wish to make ONLY the cards, the retail cost is around $20, plus any Metal Staples you wish to use.

The goal of the card class is to show beginners how to create cards with minimal product and without using a lot of special tools. Plus, this is a great way to show experienced crafters how to use up the scraps and left-overs from the larger class.

I am going to confess right up front - this month's class is a bit beyond beginner! I really got carried away with the fussy cutting! As always, you can remove some of the elements and still have some great cards. The cards are decorated inside AND out! This is your chance to go step-by-step into my card making process and make some "Gloria-style" cards of your own! 

Here is what they look like with the metal keys added:

Sharpen your scissors and have fun!
