Paper Love

Lets be Honest here..I have an addiction....
...to paper.
I always have..always will.
I love to shred, glue, wrinkle..
tear, paste, and assemble with it..
There is just something about this 12" x 12" beauty that keeps me captivated.

But since my jewelry journey began..
I have to admit..
Paper found its way less and less into my creations.
That is until a few weeks back I found myself drooling over some papers I found over at

Its called Graphic 45
and I found out where I could get some at

Now, a while back I had purchaced some of this paper at my local scrapbook store,but since then the store has gone out of buisness,but when I saw the items this company has online..
Oh My..
These papers blew my mind..
and well I just knew I had to order some..

Here I created these Mini Hangers using  "The Magic of Oz Collection"

I used the images to create transfers and then stitched them onto the fabric..


and of course I had to make some jewelry..

using the "Steampunk Debutante Collection"

I created these soldered,resin filled Pendants.
I also ordered some other yummy Graphic 45 items,like the ribbons I used as chain,and word stickers.



Ooooh..I think I'm in Love..

As always,
thank you so much for stopping by

you deserve to be in love, cat! the joy you transmit from your place to mine is touchable. you are talented and prolific

i love paper too, in a different way. i am a writer, and there is little i like better than to print something out, hold it in my hands, feel the texture, see the patterns.

stay well ♥

It's amazing to me what you do with the paper - your work is so unique and creative! And as for having too much paper, or loving it...ahem. Guilty. :) xox Pam

Cat,
I've been having a love affair with Graphic 45 for some time now. Haven't seen this paper though. And I love little hangers, but haven't seen these either.
Love what you did with them! Drool-worthy.
xo, Cheryl

The new creations are great, but my favourite are the Oz ones, what fun!

WOW you have been away from paper! LOL yes Graphic 45 came on the scene almost 3 years ago now I think, most of us are addicted to it. A bit pricey (especially at SB.com with their outrageous shipping) Do a google search, you can find it elsewhere also...Alphastamps for one. I will say The ribbons and stuff must be new. As I haven't seen anything from graphic 45 but their card stock paper and the tag sheets.

Beautiful creations!
Susan
