One of my CHA-S projects is up today on the Graphic 45 blog. It was a pleasure to work with two of Graphic 45's brand new products: An ABC Primer paper collection coupled with one of the altered art boxes. By the way, each altered art box contains an accordion album!
It is so much fun and easy to work with these altered art boxes. The window is open so that all you have to do is
- decide what paper you want to use on the cover
- place the paper behind the window and trace
- cut out your tracing and paste
Couldn't be easier!
The top opens to reveal this panel.
(oh and by the way, this box has a very strong magnet so it closes itself ; )
Here's the box totally open. I put some G45 images at the bottom of the box
but when you open the box, you see this mini-accordion book nestled in the box.
The die-cuts (the sitting boy on the front, the children's silhouettes and the numbers)
are all from Imaginarium designs . . . a perfect addition to this line of papers.
Actually, the sitting boy was a sitting girl until I cut off her pony tail ; )
The mini-book has 8 panels
so I designed this for 1 photo per grade school years
1 thru 8.
There are two more projects to see over at the Graphic 45 blog. My Team Mates Yuka and Robin have designed two beautiful projects with brand new G45 lines.
