I created this matching card and gift card holder using Graphic 45's Le Romantique Collection for a special gift for a bridal shower.  This is the perfect collection to create something special for that bride to be!  I was inspired once again by the one and only Arlene Cuevas AKA Butterflykisses after watching her tutorial.  The gift card holder is created using a Graphic 45 tag from the Staples Large Tag Album.  I used different elements from the paper collection and did some fussy cutting.  I also used some of Graphic 45's Staple Brads.  I also used some I Am Roses to accent with flowers.  I added some lace and satin ribbon too!

Graphic 45 By The Sea Bottle Set & Holder

Hello Everyone!  Hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day!  It's Monday and the start of a new week.  I found some time this past week to spend time doing what I love…..CREATING!  I bought this set of bottles and holder at Michael's.  When I saw it I knew exactly what I wanted to do to alter it and of course it called for Graphic 45's By The Sea Collection.  I did a little bit of fussy cutting using the collection.  I accented the bottles with paper, cutouts from the paper collection,  rope and seashells. This collection reminds me of the beaches on the East Coast and screams seaside summer.   I decided to create this this so that I can have a place to collect my sea glass and shell collections.  I love to go shelling and sea glass collecting.  I have a love of the ocean and beaches.  I am blessed enough to spend so much time at the beach. 
I will be posting other projects that I was able to create this past week so stop by often to see what I have been up to.  Hope everyone has a great week!!!
