Catch-up Complete

The last couple of days have been busy - busy working at Alice in Paperland.  Things are changing at Alice's with the opening of a second store in beautiful Port Macquare on the mid north coast of NSW only a couple of weeks away.    I can feel a weekend away happening before too long so I can go check out how Nicole has arranged this new venture.  Ahh, to feel a lovely sea breeze each day, how lucky she and her family are to embark on this sea-change adventure!

Anyhow, I wanted to pop by and show the last of the things I made at the recent Craftanoon, this time with the gorgeous Graphic 45 'Couture' collection.

This is another elegant range that Graphic 45 has brought out, with images from a bygone era.

I like being able to have co-ordinating inserts and this leftover strip of peacock feathers works beautifully.

These four gift cards were so quick and easy to put together - black cardstock, followed by a mat of peacock feathers and topped off with these lovely images.  Each one also has an ivory insert, otherwise you would have to use a white or silver pen to write with.

Thanks for coming to look today.  I'll be back again (before you know it) with some more fun ideas!

Happy crafting!


  1. This series of couture cards is absolutely magnificent, Helen! I am a Graphic 45 fan, but I have somehow gotten away from using my good patterned paper in my art journaling. But, you have inspired me today to make some cards. I don't have this collection, but do have another which will work! Thanks! Mwah! KayW

    1. I normally buy the whole pad of a collection and much as I like this one, Kay, in this instance I only bought 3 sheets of 12 x 12. I really need to start using more of the collections I already have in my stash, hence why I only purchased what I wanted this time. Thanks for all your lovely comments. xoxox
