Make A Wish...

Hello everyone!

I just wanted to pop by today to say a huge thank you to everyone who commented on my first tutorial over on Tim Holtz's blog as a member of the Tim Holtz Media Team. I've been blown away by all the lovely comments you've left me on Tim's blog, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter and I really do appreciate every single word! :) Thank you!!!

So, back to today and I'm sharing a couple of cards that I made using the gorgeous By The Sea paper collection from Graphic 45. I was thrilled to have these featured on the front cover of the August issue of Making Cards Magazine, where I also included full instructions on how to make them.

I hope you love what I've made...

On this card, as you can see, I did quite a bit of fussy cutting to create the collection of seashells along the bottom. It does take a while but it creates wonderful embellishments for your cards.

With the exception of the matting and layering card, vintage ribbon, decorative pins and driftwood...all items are from the By The Sea paper collection by Graphic 45.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!
Have a wonderful weekend and see you next Emma xx

  2. Hey Emma! I thought your make for TH was the most wonderful creation I had ever seen . I love Graphic 45 and I know they love you!
    Every time I see this paper my heart starts singing "By the sea, by the sea, by the beautiful sea".
    Both of your cards are beautifully designed and made especially the one with the drift wood and speaking if drift, thank you for drifting into my life!
