T.T. Tuesday–G45–Free File

Good morning Crafting Friends,

I hope you’re having a wonderful day…Today is another Talk Time Tuesday at The Creative Cutter Room.
Our sponsor this week is Graphic 45. For those that aren’t familiar with Graphic 45, it is a wonderful company that creates some FABULOUS vintage paper.
Another little known fact: If I remember correctly, I read in a trade publication that the reason for the name Graphic 45 is that the person who started the company started it at the age of 45!  How cool is that!  So for those of us who are this age….the game is not over girls!  Look at this marvelous company and how it has flourished and grown! What an inspiration!

Be sure to head over to the CCR Blog to join in the challenge!

Here is my project for today!

Here is a view of the entire layout.
I used the following Graphic 45 papers to complete this project:
Playtimes Past – Dollies Teaparty
Playtimes Past – Mary Mary Quite Contrary
Transatlantique – Souvenir Stripe
Domestic Goddess – Domestic Goddess

teapot closeup
Here is a close up of the teapot. All I did was cut it out of the Mary Mary Quite Contrary paper. Just gorgeous! The background musical paper is on the other side of that sheet! I used pop dots to give a little lift.

dress cut outs close up-400
Here is a close up of the little dollie dresses. I cut one of them out of the Mary Mary Quite Contrary piece of paper and the other two were from the Dollies Teaparty paper. I used pop dots to give them a little lift as well.

memories close up
Here is a close up shot of the title. I cut it from the Heritage Cricut Cartridge. I purposely used a more tonal piece of paper for the title. I didn’t want it to over power everything else. I lightly inked the edges to give it a little more dimension.
mat closeup
Here is a close up of the larger mat. You can see the Souvenir Stripe paper in the background and the photo corners are from the other side of the dollies teaparty paper.
vintage bear-400wjl
Last but not least, here is my vintage bear. I created her and cut her out using my MTC program and Cricut. Her dress is from the Domestic Goddess paper with Lilypond and White Bazzill Cardstock. She is made out of a Bazzill Smoothie cardstock.

I am giving the vintage bear cutting file and the dress form and swirl cutting file (on tag below) away to 4 lucky winners:
