Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge # 3...Vintage or Retro Style

Good morning everyone and welcome to Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge #3.  This is sort of a long post, so get your cuppa  and let's visit for a little while.

First off...if you will take note on my side bar...Design Team A and B have come together for one large wonderful team.  We will post on the first week of the challenge and since our challenges run for two weeks, on the second week there will be guest designers.  I'm sure you are going to see some wonderful pieces posted on that second week as well so mark that on your calendars and check back!

When our challenge this week  said "Vintage or Retro Style" I knew exactly which one is me.  I'm totally Vintage!  So I went into my stash to see what I could come up with.  Graphic 45 is our sponsor for the whole month of March so of course I wanted to use some of their papers!  They are my new most favorite products!  

Graphic 45 is an award winning scrapbook and paper crafting company - owned and operated by a mother (Diane Schultz) and her two daughters (Aimee and Charee Filimoehala).  Together they create vintage inspired crafting products that capture the flamboyant style of the 1920's and 30's - with vibrant color, irresistible texture and imaginative design to create products with decades old appeal that's both fresh and familiar.  Let their products inspire your next scrapbook layout, card, album or home decor project.  Please visit the Graphic 45 Website or Facebook page for more information.

They have donated an awesome prize package just check it out!

How wonderful is this?  Now don't even try and tell me you wouldn't love to have this!  So much crafty goodness and you could be the winner.  Just go into your hoard (I know you have one) and pull out supplies that best says what your style is.  Use some of that hoard and make a project, blog about it and then link back to it from the Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge blog.  You have until midnight on March 16 to join us.  Good luck to you all and I  hope to see your project there!  Now on to my project!




Those of you who know me, know I'm all about the dies and flowers!  I love making flowers and I seem to hoard dies that make the petals.  So together with Graphic 45 and my flower making dies I made this card.  I used A Ladies Diary for these gorgeous papers and I did some fussy cutting and popping up with dimensional tape.  I will list the flowers, leaves and dies in the supply list below.  So I used some old hoarded items and some new hoarded items.  This Graphic 45 paper is something that I love, love, love.  Who knew I would be so crazy about this company.  I only have a couple of old paper pads that I won a few years ago and so recently I got some new papers and now I just want to look at them and not use them.  I'm really trying to break bad and cut it up!  Yes, yes....I know...my name is Glenda and I'm a Hoarder!

So come join us from this wonderful challenge and you could win this amazing prize!  Good luck and get to it!
