More Graphic 45

Hi to all,

If your kids have gone back to school I hope you're soaking up the peace and quiet. If not, I hope you're enjoying the family time.

My kids have gone back and I've had a chance to get into the scrap room. I've had a ball playing with the Graphic 45 papers from The Scrapbook Store. Here's what I made this week.

This is one of those pages that looks better in real life but there's not much I can do about that! The Graphic 45 papers work so well with white cardstock. This is the Bohemian Bazaar range and it's available here.

I gave the background a very light spray with Dylusions (available here) and used texture paste through a Kaisercraft Bubbles stencil (available here) to create the background. I dragged out my Cricut machine to make the retro title. I was inspired to do this when I googled Michelin Man and found a lot of the advertising was done in the 50's and had this font style.

Here's a close up:

I gave the title and the outside edges of the paper section a light black edging to help anchor them. To create the bubble look below the title I punched different sized circles from the G45 paper. I did a few things to tie in with the bubbly spa theme.

I LOVE the Memory Box Loopy Rings die I used to cut these bubbly circles. Aren't they adorable? They're so fine and delicate. They're available here.

And here's a final closie of the same die used at the bottom. I also used part of a strip of paper left over from punching the circles for the top section.

I made this entire page using the Bohemian Bazaar range and I love it! It creates such an impact on a layout.

Hope your scrapping is bright and cheery this week!
