Graphic 45 spree -PKS Challenge

I just had to have the Le Cirque collection when I saw it released and when I stopped in at Archivers the other day (with my 30% coupon ;) ) I was so excited to see that they had it in!  I picked up the Le Cirque pack along with some of the Once Upon a Springtime sheets.

Here are a couple of cards that I put together. With the Le Cirque collection:

Thank you Card
I really like how this card turned out.  I used the tutorial from splitcoast stampers for the recessed window.  It is hard to see in the photos but the inside square is slightly recessed.

Materials used:
Bohemain Floral Patterned paper from Graphic 45 Le Cirque collection
Black Soot Distress Ink
Glitter flowers
I-rock and heat set gems

Birthday Wishes
PKS Challenge

For this card I wanted it to look like a circus tent (my kids knew what it was as I as creating it so it must be close LOL - my 4 year old said "It's a show!") 

I used the tutorial from splitcoast stampers for the Shadow Box Card.

Materials used:
Circus Parade and Le Cirque Tags patterned paper from the Graphic 45 Le Cirque collection
Black lace ribbon
adhesive pearls by the Paper Studio
grommets from Stampin Up!
black twine
red mulberry paper
Black soot distress ink
A Child's Year Cricut Cartridge (the label where I stamped the sentiment was cut using this cartridge)
Stampin' Up! Sincere Salutations

Upcoming G45 projects:
I have an acrylic album started using the Halloween In Wonderland line (the album is all put together I just need to embellish the pages :) ).

I have a large printers drawer that I picked up awhile ago and when I saw the Le Cirque collection I knew I needed to use it to alter the drawer as a gift for hubby - he loves Circus memorabillia!

I have a Easter tree in mind with the Once Upon a Springtime collection. I started making the tree the other day  :)

And lots of other little ideas stewing in my little ole melon.  I can't wait to find the time to complete some of these projects.  I am so inspired by Graphic 45 at the moment!  Loving the vintage look :)
