WOYWW 220

Hi everyone.  I hope all is well in WOYWW land.  I have been missing for a while and just wanted to treat myself to a little crafting company today.  I am looking forward to catching up with you all.

So what is new on my desks???????  Over at the Video desk all is fairly neat and tidy........


I am working on a series of Graphic 45 Tag videos inspired by my latest workshop for my Tag Storage Unit.  You can see the one I made in the tutorial here and it is destined to have a family history of tags stored in it but at the moment it is housing G45 tags from packs of embellishments!!!  Don't count them ;-)


I am going to make a series of tag tutorials featuring all the beautiful collections of Graphic 45 papers (That's the plan anyway!!!).  As you can see I am going to use the packaging!  It would be rude not to when they make them look so pretty.  I was going for a Chinese lacquered look on this side of the tag.


And a totally different feel to the reverse of the tag.  I hope this series of tutorials shows off the beauty and versatility of Graphic 45 papers.  It will turn into a neat record of all the paper collections as they are released.  I think you could apply this idea to other paper manufacturers too.

Over on the neat end of my main desk is something I did at our Crop weekend before last.  Everyone there had Project Life fever and I do like the idea but I love my 12 x 12 layouts too much to give them up.  I thought I would try it out though and have started a pocket page using my latest buy which was the gorgeous My Minds Eye Chalk Board collection.  I fell in love with this collection when it was launched and lucky me my pal Jackie has it in her shop!!!!


I had great fun mixing and matching the papers to fit in the pockets.  I am going to print my photos in Black and White and then embellish a bit more.  I will make a 12 x 12 companion page so I get the best of both worlds.

That's it from me except to say if you don't know what WOYWW is then follow this link and be prepared to be amazed at the creativity going on all around the world.  I am off to virtual visit now.  Hope to see you there.

Thanks for popping by X

  5. I really like the patterns and colours of your LO papers, the graphic style really floats my boat! You'll have to show the result! And I love the luminous green of your cutting mat too..or is it just the light playing tricks??

  8. Juicy, mouthwatering colours on your desk, Helen. The tag is out of this world (as all your tags are!!) and I love the idea of using the packaging. When something's beautiful, it should definitely be used, not thrown away! I love the tag storage unit. I am looking forward to thinking up a way to display tags and ATCs so that they are all visible but haven't decided what to do yet.

    Thanks for your lovely comment, and for sharing my enthusiasm over my tremendous project! It's all so exciting, and I'm enjoying putting stuff into my new room so much. I've got my work cut out over the next couple of days - putting as much ARTHaven stuff in as possible tomorrow, and then sorting Mum's stuff when it arrives on Friday. It's all go now, with the move fixed for 16th Sept. and still soooo much to do!!

    Happy WOYWW,

  11. BEAUTIFUL tags Helen, I love Graphic 45 - I was looking at their Steampunk Spells range yesterday and walked away without buying - I must have had some kind of episode - now I'm thinking I'm going to have to go back to the shop! Great storage unit too! Have a happy week and thanks for your visit. MMx #33

    1. Buy them Maisie!!!!!!! They are stunning ;-) My friend covered a similar storage unit (taller) with the Hot Air Balloon Paper and matched the balloons flying all the way up the drawers. It looked stunning! x

  12. So pretty Helen! I picked up my first Graphic 45 papers the other day, and can't wait to try them. You have such a way with them. I picked up the Nutcracker paper from last year I believe. I figured I can use it for the holidays and for my ballerina nieces. Have a blast at Tim's class! I dream of going one day to one! Thanks for the visit today! Winnie#89

    1. Thanks Ria - My collection of holders is growing by the minute - I just don't have enough time in the day for all the ideas I have had since designing this fun storage. I'll get them on my blog as soon as I can. See you soon x

  19. Love the tag holder and the tag is to die for. I just adore Graphic 45 paper but I rarely buy any because I think I would be afraid to cut and use it. I did recently purchase a smaller pad to dabble with (6x6 I think?). I too have used the front packaging from crafty things to make something else. You know, it is included, why not use it?!

    1. I am so glad you recognised it Heidi!!!! I am just waiting for the muse to strike on where to take this mural next!!!! We have visited New York and the whole family loved it - even the bitter cold wind whistling between the skyscrapers!!! I think this holiday was the inspiration for the room makeover. I am going to frame lots of our holiday snaps.....once I finish the painting of course!!!! x
