January Layout with Graphic 45

I have another layout to share using Graphic 45's Place in Time. I absolutely love this collection!! But then I love every collection they make! Somewhere or another I got away from making layouts with G45, but this has me back on track. I see a lot of layouts being made with G45 in the future. Everything besides the lace and buttons is G45. With this collection you really don't need anything else. They have given you everything you need to create a fabulous layout.

Anyway, I really didn't have a photo for this layout because we had no snow in January, but I am sure I will eventually be able to dig an old photo out, scan, print, and adhere. I loved this so much I wanted to share now.

Here it is:

I have a new layout to share using Prima's Rondelle collection. The title of my layout is of course, Gorgeous.  I went way out of my comfort zone with this layout. I have little experience with using sprays and masks, but for this layout I did both and also stamped. The sprays are the Starburst sprays from Lindy's Stamp Gang. I purchased them recently and I must say I have been missing out. They are gorgeous!! The mask I used is made by Prima and I used Tim Holtz distress inks for that. Everything else on this layout is made by Prima.

I am still on a learning curve with the sprays, but I hope in time I will have it down pat.

Here's my layout.

Love Imagine Dream

The layout I am sharing with you today utilizes a lot of old chipboard I have had forever. All of the frames are chipboard. For the top frame I painted it with Teal Zircon Silks acrylic glaze. Then I used a Prima stamp and some black ink and stamped all over it. No need to be precise. Just keep stamping until you get the desired look. For the middle frame I mixed some of the Silks and black paint. Don't mix it too much or you will get a solid color. I wanted it to be two tone. I painted the Silks on the bottom frame and that was it. I used a Martha Stewart punch to add punched strips to all the frames. The butterflies are also from a Martha Stewart punch. Love, Imagine, and Dream are all rub ons made by Kaisercraft. The big teal flowers were made using a tutorial by Lisa Gregory. You will need the Tattered Florals Sizzix die for this. I substituted a button for the middle of my flowers. The rest of the flowers are some I have had on hand. The birdcage was made using the French Manor cricut cartridge. The leaves were made using a Spellbinders Foliage die. Lastly, I did spray the corners with Dylusions. The colors are Vibrant Turqoiuse and Black Marble. That should do it. Here is my layout:
