Papercrafting Fun With All Around Creativity!


Hello!  Welcome!  There is so much to be grateful for, including YOU, dear reader, friend, and customer! 💝


My Grateful Wreath is a happy reminder to reflect on all we have to be grateful for!  It was such a delight to create!  


My 16-inch frame is laser cut plywood and part of the new All Around Creativity collection of kits available at PapercraftingWithGayle.ctmh.com.  


To give mine a bit of bling, I coated it with my Clear Shimmer Brush.  I love how it glistens in the light!  


The multitude of leaves included in the kits are oh, so easy to punch out.  I simply gave mine a bit of a fold, down the center to add dimension, and then using my Gold Shimmer Brush, lightly went over vein lines.  This simple act adds dimension and a subtle sparkle.  


Prior to removing my flowers from their carrier sheet, I lightly sponged the layers of a couple of the flowers with Mint Ink, and others with Ballerina Ink.  They are a fresh White upon arrival, and are beautiful as is!  Liquid Glass is my go-to adhesive for assembling flowers and wreaths!  

After my flowers were assembled, I added Julep  and Silver Glitter Gems, along with a mix of Julep and Silver Sequins.  💝

Oh, my goodness!  This paper bow is so easy and fun to create!  It adds such a delightful finishing touch to my wreath! 💝


The All Around Creativity Kit now comes in four additional versions, along with my Grateful Wreath.  They include, Be Kind, Stay Awhile, Create and just released, Love.  💖


      

Each kit includes--your selected sentiment/frame


- Punch out leaves, flowers, and bow

- 4 Background paper options

When creating your wreath, you will need a strong adhesive!  I highly recommend Liquid Glass.  


I do hope you will join me in creating one or more of these beautiful wreaths for your own home/office/classroom decor, or to give as a gift!  It will surely be enjoyed for years to come!  


Thank you so much for visiting!  YOU are appreciated!  

I enjoy hearing from you and appreciate your business and support.  I look forward to helping you as you travel along life's journey celebrating relationships with all of YOUR papercrafting and memory keeping needs.  💖

Have a wonderful day!

Happy Papercrafting,

    1. Thank you, Allyson! Yes! I love my Cricut, but there is certainly something to be said for a kit that just needs adhesive! Or, even just a few additional products to alter to suit your fancy. Have a wonderful day!
