I love cardmaking and stamping . . .
A huge thank you to all the gals . . .

French Country . . .

This will go down as one of my all-time favorite paper collections. Graphic 45's French Country stole my heart.  I used one of my photos from a trip to France to capture the *French Country*.

G45 French Country A

Fussy cutting, popping up and stencils from Stencil Girl added to my layout.

A perfect little chicken and feather from Stencil Girl fit right in to this theme.

The flowers were fussy cut and layered.

The Graphic 45 tag was stamped with

a chicken wire stamp from Hampton Arts

and then edged with a Pen-Touch gold leaf pen.

May Arts ribbon topped it off.

G45 French Country 1

More fussy cutting and layering.

I like to use chipboard to back my layering rather than using pop-ups.

The chipboard gives the layering more body.

Before adhering to pieces, I edge the chipboard with black ink

to make the chipboard less noticeable when peeking from behind.

The paper edges were inked with Ranger's Rusty Hinge Distress Ink.

G45 French Country 3

Another bit of fussy cutting of the crown.

LOVE the Graphic 45 keys!

I use Beacon 3-in-1 adhesive. It's the best I've found for both

paper arts & metals. Amazing hold without wrinkling paper!

G45 French Country 4

What an honor it is to work with the beautiful

Graphic 45

So gorgeous, Nancy. Wish I had gone with you, at that time! I love this paper too. But I love each collection that they introduce. Thanks for this look.

Beautiful Layout!! Does FSK have the papers in? I have a few France layouts to complete and would love to use this paper. Thanks!
