Hey everyone! I am so excited to share my projects with you today! I was lucky enough to have the chance to work with the Graphic 45 ABC Primer Collection. This is a great set of vintage style papers with awesome matching die cut chipboard pieces. The timing of me receiving this product was absolutely perfect – my daughter graduated Playschool this month! A big moment for our little girl!
Creating a layout using these products was SO easy!
I layered a combination of chipboard items and paper elements to create some dimension on my layout.
Chalkboard techniques are a hot crafting trend right now, so I cut some stars out of black cardstock with my Silhouette Cameo and used a white gelly roll pen to add some white stitching around the edges.
A simple title was made by stamping onto one of the lighter pattern cardstock using black ink. I also used my Cameo to make circles of various sizes with a few different papers that I could layer in the background.
I couldn’t stop there, since I still had a TON of goodies left! I think this collection would be loved by teachers, so I made a cute little gift for Bria’s Playschool teacher.
I created this super fun pencil gift box using three quarters of a sheet of cardstock, a couple other scraps of paper and a cutting file from the Silhouette store. Using some fluid chalk ink, I added some shading to the edges of my pencil to give it a vintage feel. I also made a cute little matching gift tag to attach to my pencil using one of the die cut cardboard pieces and a couple small pieces of cardstock.
The thing I love the most about designer collections like the ABC Primer collection, is that since everything coordinates so well, it’s almost impossible to make something that doesn’t turn out great!
I hope you liked my projects! Have an amazing day!
