Typography Art Book Box

Happy Wednesday All!
Today's G45 blog features projects created with Typography 
(SO in love with this collection!)

I created this ART 
gift/storage box. 

Who wouldn't love receiving this inspiring box bursting with handpicked & crafted art and embellishments under the tree this year?? (hint, hint!!) ;o

Thinking maybe, 
this would be a great workshop for 
ART @ the Farm...
what'd you think?? 

There's also this amazing desk organizer crafted by Design Team member Olga. 
Such a great set!!

ART @ the Farm Fall Workshops

We had 2 wonderful 
Fall workshops here at the Farm. 

check out the fun.....
First we created a chunky mini with an open theme...everyone got to choose their own color palette and theme...either bucket list or gratitude. 
These little guys are VERY addicting. 
I'm ready to craft one for every season!!

these are a few of the bucket lists or gratitude lists we got to choose from....

For our 2nd Fall project we created an accordion keepsake featuring an artsy, creative theme; leaving the content open to interpretation for almost anything the creator may want to feature inside. 

here's the finished sample....

we always have a blast and make a HUGE mess!!

fun! huh!!?!

Thanks my crafty ladies!! 
Can hardly wait till next time! 

What are you Thankful For??

Yet another year is almost under our belts!! 
(can you believe how fast that one flew by!?sheesh!)
I love this time of year to reflect and take inventory of all the blessings the year has had to offer...
and I just LOVE 
creating keepsakes to hold these blessings close and remember how good life really is!

This year I created a Family Friendly Thankful Banner Project 
just perfect for a Thanksgiving Day craft everyone will enjoy taking part in. 

 it just takes a little prep and a few basic supplies...

I pre-printed "I am Thankful for" tags that can be filled in by family & friends, photo mats (cut to 2x2 Instagram size) and included fun embellishments, borders and scraps. 

 Encourage guests to create their very own Gratitude pennent to add to the Banner. 
Use the completed Banner to add a festive decoration to your Thanksgiving gathering. 

check out this YouTube quick & easy tutorial....

and check out the Graphic 45 blog for this project and many more family friendly craft night ideas too....

Here's a few photos of the "Celebrate" chunky pocket mini, 
another sample for our upcoming workshop. 

You can choose between an "event" or "list" style theme as the content for your sweet little book. 
Please start thinking about your design choice. 
I will have a variety of papers/color choices available to accommodate most themes. 

For bucket list and challenge ideas check out my Pinterest board featuring dozens of fun ideas....

So looking forward to Saturday and hanging with my crafty peeps!
See you all then :)
