Grafix Arts…have you tried this stuff?

1 Aug

I have been using Grafix Arts supplies a little here and there in my recent posts.

Here is a look at the items I am talking about.

These projects that you might have already seen, I have used either FUNKY FILM or the METALLIC FOIL BOARD.

The FUNKY FILM is what really shimmers in these projects and has a bit of pattern, whereas the METALLIC FOIL BOARD has no pattern.

Now let’s move on to my current projects.  My first projects, these mini pin cushions utilize the following products:

FUNKY FILM, METALLIC FOIL BOARD and SHRINK FILM.

 This pin cushion is made from a tiny picture frame.

I made these adorable head pins with stamps and the SHRINK FILM.

 The stamps here are from the My Time Made Easy, SO FORTUNATE set.

This next pin cushion I had seen made on The DIY Dish.

These headpin  flowers are made with a die cut, BLACK SHRINK FILM  and glass beads.

 The embellishments around both are a mixture of FUNKY FILM and METALLIC FOIL BOARD.

This next project utilizes GRAFIX ART’S SHRINK FILM.

Again I am using some stamps from the My Time Made Easy SO FORTUNATE set.

The black flowers are a stamp from an {ippity} set called FLOWERS FRIENDS PRICELESS.

Again using glass beads to embellish and everything is attached with jewelry findings and wire.

Next is a Halloween decoration.

The base, is a HUGE diecut and is all done with GRAFIX ARTS CHIPBOARD.

This project stars the newline of paper by AUTHENTIQUE PAPER called GLOWING.

Using FUNKY FILM in the COPPER BRUSH and PEACH RAIN colors that went perfectly with the GLOWING line.

Lots of beads, mini banners and lots of sparkle from the FUNKY FILM make this a delight to look at.

Look at that PEACH RAIN FUNKY FILM, isn’t it gorgeous?

This Christmas Holiday decoration was made with METALLIC FOIL BOARD and die cuts from GRAFIX ARTS CHIPBOARD.

The CHIPBOARD is very sturdy and the FOIL BOARD is gorgeous when embossed, see the stars?

I accented these with AUTHENTIQUE PAPER’S WONDER line.

 Here we have a little ensemble of rainbow fun.

I have used the same stamps and SHIRINK FILM as mentioned earlier.

Up close picture of the hair barrettes.

Close up of the shoes.

These barrettes are so bright and fun!

 My daugher LOVES them!

 Here is a jewlery set fit for a princess or ladybug loving mom like ME!

I used some miscellaneous stamps on hand and SHRINK FILM.

 There are so many endless possibilities with the SHRINK FILM.

 Close up of the ladybug SHRINK FILM tile.

Oh, and look at this TINY ring  I made!!

 Can you believe how precious that is?

Here we have a banner that shows off GRAFIX ARTS METALLIC FOIL BOARD.

 I mixed the foil board and material for a really unique looking banner.

I love the die cut fruit and flowers with the FOIL BOARD.

 Very eye catching and colorful!

 I used the FOIL BOARD and die cut the trim for all these banner pieces and then adhered the borders with hot glue.

I think the trim gives this an added sweetness, agree?

 One more look!

 I ran out of time..so here are some GRAFIX ARTS SHIRNK FILM stars, you might see in an upcoming project!!

 If you have not visited the GRAFIX ARTS website, you have got to take a look at all their unique projects!

There is a store locater on the website and also a link to purchase things online.

Let me know which project featuring the GRAFIX ARTS supplies you enjoyed the most and thank you so much for browsing!

Have a TERRIFIC monday!

My Time Made Easy, Day 3

5 Jan

 Today marks my 3rd and final day with My Time Made Easy.   I have really enjoyed my time as the January Guest Designer.  I have made some new friends and will miss my short stint with them.   

Today’s assignment was to use a things that were from their existing supplies.  I have used the following :  In Suspense Template, Ga Ga for Gingham Paper, Fun Flowers Paper and On Display Digital Stamp Set.

I just love how bright and cheery this looks.  I had the hardest time getting ALL of my kids to leave this alone.  I think it is safe to assume that this would be a welcome addition to anyone you give something like this to.  The circle is there so you can hang it on a door knob, but the pattern also shows you where to alter it to turn it into a stand alone box.

Keep in mind this is supposed to be a box that SUSPENDS from a door knob.  For my picture, I am not about to put this on any door knob in my home. 

Think 7 kids!! 

 Photoshop can only do so much and creating a nice backdrop from my DOORS, yeah right!!

Well, that was FUN!  Now let’s see how long I can keep those gum balls safe!  If you have a personal cutting machine, treat yourself and head over to MY TIME MADE EASY and try something.  If you don’t have a cutting machine, NO PROBLEM.  The templates all come in .pdf so yu can print and cut them your self!!

I am so happy with every single product I have used of theirs.  I should say that their Acrylic stamps are just about the BEST I have ever used.  They are cut wonderfully and beautifully detailed.  I could go on and on, just trust me, My Time Made Easy is the cream of the crop!

Thank you MTME for having me as a guest.  This guest spot will go down in history with me, being the most fun and the most challenging thanks to numerous computer setbacks.  At least I got everything done!  I have just had a blast!  Ok..that is it…It is bedtime and I have to iron the hubby’s shirt.  Bye again and thanks for visiting me :)

My Time Made Easy, Take 2

3 Jan

This is a quick post to showcase some more wonderful things for MY TIME MADE EASY.  I mainly wanted to showcase a couple of their paper lines and templates.

Fun Flowers

Gag Ga for Gingham

So Fortunate – Template

Rambling Rose – Cut File

I made these items VERY late into the night.  Thanks to major computer problems I have been having, I was only able to get these done.  I wanted to showcase the So fortunate template.  I made this project and have pictured it compared to the FULL SIZE take-out box I did on Saturday.  This template is so easy to use.  The box is ADORABLE as a mini.  I had so much fun with this, I might just have to use this template scaled down for Valentines for my kids.  How cute would that me to have a mini take-out box for Valentines Day at school.  I might just do it.  It is late, I would love to focus in on each picture, but my beddy bye is calling my and I think I might listen!

Last note:  The salmon colored flower is the RAMBLING ROSE cut file.  I have to keep playing around with this file.  I will master this flower and WOW you all another day.  For now, this is one tired cookie, signing off.  I hope you enjoyed this mini project I have made.

 

January Guest Designer for My Time Made Easy…..YEAH!!!!

31 Dec

1st of all just let me say:

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!

Now that I got that said, onto my post :)

Have you been over to the MY TIME MADE EASY blog nand website?  If not, you are in for a serious treat.  They have the most amazing cut files, digi papers, digi stamps and acrylic stamps.

I have to say they are one of my favorite all time places to go to for inspiration, products and files.

Their cut files(templates) are truly flawless and so much fun to work with.

January 1, 2011 marks the release of their new line called

SO FORTUNATE.  I have had so much fun creating with everything in this line.  I am so happy to show you today what things I have made.

The things that I have used are:

 

So Fortunate © – Pretty Packaging © Template

So Fortunate © 24 Images – Acyrlic Stamp Set

What’s My Fortune? Cookie © Pretty Pieces © Cut File

Blooming Cherries, Fun and Fortune and Plum Pretties Printables Digital Papers

I have made 2 different sets to show off.

First let’s go with my PINK project!

I wanted to really make my Cherry Blossoms stand out, they were taller than the box they way I did it, so I just made and additional wrap around handle and sewed all around my stamped images to really make them stand out.

She is soo cute.  Can you see that adorable TINY fortune cookie I made.  That was my own creation :)

That cookie is so small, a nightmare to do :)  But remember that is MINE not My Time Made Easy, because nothing of theirs is a nightmare.

Now, onto my PURPLE project.

I have to show off here a little bit.  You see that fortune cookie hanging off the take out box, that is made from wool.  I used the .pdf of the What’s my fortune cookie cut file and transformed it into a durable wool felt fortune cookie

It can be used over and over again.  I secured it to the handles with a ball chain.

So you notice how the lantern is 3-D?  I stamped the image about 20 times and cut it out to create that thumb sized lantern.

Here you can really see the dimension.

No this is NOT a mauve project, just was hard to get a good shot, it was night time.

This is the inside of the card.

Wouldn’t this be a great gift set to recieve?  The fortune attached to the take out box says, “Chinese takeout is in your future”

 

This new release from My Time Made Easy  new release wouldn’t be fun without several great ideas, so be sure you visit the team for an amazing BLOG HOP, packed with inspiration for the New Year!

Those are the words from the MY TIME MADE EASY folks!  Have fun on the HOP!!  Try their things, I promise you will not be disappointed!

WELCOME TO THE MY PAPER TREEHOUSE BLOG HOP

15 Dec

We are celebrating that God has blessed My Paper Treehouse with an awesome design team.  Please hop along with us and visit each of the DT members. If you get lost or just found the hop start here.

You should have arrived here from Maritha’s blog.

Her blog was not co-operating with her, but her ITEM for you was the SKETCH! So be sure to pick that up!

Each of the DT members have a wonderful story to share with you about what God has done and is doing in their lives… these are God’s fingerprints.  Not only do we have a ton to share with you but there are RAKs along the way, a Great Blog Hop Challenge with a prize and a wonderful Grand Prize from Artful Delight.

Yesterday I did a post called THE MOST IMPORTANT BLOG POST EVER.  I know that you are on a hop and that sometimes we try to move through these quickly.  But I encourage you all to at least look briefly at my blog post from yesterday and if you do not have time, come back and read the whole post.  Being on the MY PAPER TREEHOUSE design team, is not something that came around by any coincidence for me.  It is my belief in God that makes me say this.  I have a few things that have happened in my life that border on AMAZING, and my placement with this team is one of those events.  How the events have unfolded all lining up that I would have my MOST IMPORTANT BLOG POST EVER just posted the day BEFORE this blog hop is amazing to me.  The most amazing part is that I had no control over when I could post my project that I shared today, as I had to wait until another blog that I design for posted the project first.  If you can see what I am trying to convey to you, you can understand that it is truly a blessing to be able to share a very important message I want to share with families, everywhere.

If you are a mom, a grandma, an aunt, a sister or a friend you will hopefully appreciate the message in my MOST IMPORTANT BLOG POST EVER.

I strongly believe that I was gathered into the MY PAPER TREEHOUSE family for this reason alone.
