Graphic 45 + May Arts Blog Week

Thanks for stopping by my blog today for a may arts blog post for our week with Graphic 45! I made a video showing how I made a fun and easy Christmas wreath using the Christmas Emporium collection from Graphic 45 and topping everything off with some 1.25″ SK25 Red Silk ribbon from May Arts. Hope you like the tutorial!

Here’s a look at the completed wreath. I love using things like these unexpected stars to make shapes. They look like leaves but add a nice, funky touch. :)

And here are a couple of close-ups. These two sets of chipboard are so easy to use and coordinate so well with the papers!

And here’s another look. I love all of that dimension!

Thanks for stopping by today. Make sure to stop over at the May Arts blog for more fun project links and the chance to win some Graphic 45 product! Enjoy. :)

I’m just trying to recover from the last couple of days of the semester. It feels so good to be done, but I’m still trying to catch up on sleep and get my head back together after three absolutely crazy days. I can’t wait to be back in a regular, school-free routine, though. Only 17 days til Spain!
