A Ladies Diary Birthday

Hello all!

Hope your week is going well.  Almost the first day of summer, can you believe it?  My the year has gone by quickly it seems.

If you don't know already, I have started a Facebook page to share my blog posts as well as other photos of projects.  If you are on Facebook, come on over to SY's Studio and check it out.  If you want to see new posts to that page go ahead and "Like" the page.  I bring up the Facebook page because I put up a sneak peak of a birthday project for a friend.  Could be that I will be sharing other sneaks as well.  Just saying.

My friend Debby celebrated her birthday recently.  She is a Graphic 45 fan and especially loves the A Ladies Diary line.  I created a wall hanging for her using A Ladies Diary papers.

It started with some chipboard, patterned paper, and some solid cardstock.

And turned into a triple wall hanging.
Each panel is 5" x 7" and covered with solid cardstock.  On one panel you can see some embossing peaking through.  I then layered all the Ladies Diary papers.  Next came the embellishments including liquid pearls, die cut flowers, die cut frames, buttons,  and brads.  I linked the frames together with some jump rings and rings from my stash.  A bit of leaf ribbon created the hanger.

Supplies used:

Graphic 45 A Ladies Diary Collection - Garden Stroll, La Gazette, Moment in Time, Lasting Impression, Delicate Details

Core-Dinations Signature Series Graphic 45 Card Stock - Bon Voyage, Venetian Lace, Antique Moss

Teresa Collins Fabrications Brads

Ranger - Liquid Pearls in White Opal, Onyx Pearl, Platinum Pearl; Vintage Photo Distress Ink

Sizzix - Frame, Jelly, Sizzlits Large Flower, Rose 3-D

Tim Holtz Idea-ology - Jump Rings

So enjoy making these wall hangings as gifts.  It is a fairly quick project that can be made with paper and embellishments from your stash.  It can be customized to any size that suits your need.

Happy Birthday Debby!  Looking forward to seeing what spot you chose for the Ladies Diary piece.

Thank You for stopping by.  Love to read your comments.  Happy creating.

Hugs,  Sharon
