Today is Day 3 of the new Graphic 45 Summer releases and it's all about "Dreamland." Talk about dreamy! This collection is filled with beautiful blues and golden yellows and the imagery is fabulous. Sweet little children in jammies, tiny fairies, winged unicorns, child mermaids and mystical sailboats make this a very versatile collection for Baby, Children, Fantasy, or Birthday themes just to name a few.
Graphic 45 fans will be reminded of Mother Goose, Once Upon a Springtime and Fairie Dust in this precious collection, but with a different mix of colors. I created this fun home decor piece with a mini album tucked inside. Wouldn't this be great displayed in a child's bedroom? I've taken the ATC Matchbook Box and transformed it into a base and housing for the ATC Rectangle Tag & Pocket Album, then added a custom lid for the top. Ribbon and springy gold twine add to the dreamy feel.
Adding the Metal Ornate Corners and the Clawfeet to the base takes this piece to the next level as a home decor piece. You can even paint the metal pieces if you want a lighter feel.
I popped some sequins and little stars onto the front of my matchbook box to give it even more of a dreamy feel. And as you can see, the mini album fits inside and shows through the opening perfectly!
Just lift the custom lid and pull out the album.
I love the small size of this album. Perfect for popping in small photos and some journaling.
This collection releases this September, but you can win it before you can buy it by going to Graphic 45's blog
