Napavine Tigers 2017

Graduations are happening all over from pre-school to college. I am here to share with you a 12 X 12 layout, I created for this time of the year for our local high school. I have mixed and matched several paper collections to create this layout. Don't hesitate to play with the papers to create a project. Many of the paper lines go hand in hand.

The 12 X 12 base paper is QQP-AW101. 

The middle of the layout, I die cut the balloons out of the same paper as the base paper, then layer ed on to black card stock. I distressed the balloons using Corral PowderPuff chalking Ink (from my stash). The strings and celebrate also from black card stock.

The upper right of the layout, I used a large graduation cap cut out ( which was created from glitter paper)  with 2017 already cut out of the cap, I added glossy accents to make the year pop. I added the letters cut out of QQP -AW101 .

Flower Caddy

Kathi here to share with you a fun spring flower caddy.  The paper line I used is a Quick Quotes paper "Windsong". a very soft elegant paper line. I used a 7 piece flower die from China. all the flowers I distressed the edges with two of the 2017 Powderpuff Chalking inks.

This is one side of the flower caddy. The caddy was painted black then I painted one side at a time with Elmer's glue. I let it get to a tacking stage them painted a white acrylic paint over the Elmer's glue, I let it dry. As it dries it crackles. I completed each side one side at a time letting each layer dry before moving on to the next side.  A white Venice lace was hot glued to one of the long sides then a black dangle lace was placed over the white lace. I placed three handmade flowers to the upper left of the side of the caddy.

This is one of the short sides looking at the crackle technique  that was done on all three sides.

Close up of the soft flowers.  The flowers cut from Quick Quotes Windsong patterned paper. The edges were distress with 2017 Chalking Inks. Then all the flowers edges had a glue placed 
on each layer of the flowers then dipped in clear glitter. 

The second side I repeated the white Venice lace, place the black dangle lace just on the outside, then flowers where placed on the top of the black lace trim. 

Supplies Used:
Quick Quotes: Windsong
2017 Powderpuff Chalking Inks - Terra Cotta, Slate

Up cycled caddy
