I've just been accepted as a design team member for Graphic45 (Holy smokes!) and I wanted to create something that completely inspired by their papers. Soooo, I created this 'French Bundle' which was dreamed up for their French Country collection. The papers made me think of fresh linens, tablecloths and colourful curtains in a little French cottage. I thought to myself "Wouldn't it be wonderful to find a bundle of memories tucked away in an old drawer while vacationing in France?" And so that's what I made...







The pieces are not bound. The little bits are tied together with a ribbon. It's meant to be opened and explored and touched.



There's old French postcards, vintage photographs and stamps, old bits of paper and even a love note in there.



The little pages are ATC's and each sort of represents a memory or experience...







And when the looker is all done, the pieces can be gathered back up for someone else to enjoy another time.

Congratulations - you are extremely talented! Your French bundle is giving me some ideas of what to do with some old family photos...is it okay for me to use this as inspiration?

Thanks all. I'm a bit worried that any minute someone is going to say "Who invited this chick?" lol
