Altered Bird Cage by Charlie using Graphic 45's Christmas Emporium Collection

"This bird cage (compliments of Carla Oliveira) was pink. I sprayed it black for a dramatic look. Using Graphic 45's Christmas Emporium Collection, I lined the inside of the cage, including the bottom. Then I cut out, inked and backed several of the sayings from the Santas Express paper. Using Stickles, I accented them all with colors that add a bit of "bling" to each of the . This was fun and has my mind going wild with other ways to use a bird cage."

Such an amazing transformation, Thanks for sharing such an amazing project Charlie!!

Don't forget about the contest as posted here for your chance to win a December Daily album kit, help spread the word.

Graphic 45 - Christmas Emporium - Door hanger by Carla

Team member Carla created this adorable door hanger using the new Graphic 45 Christmas Emporium paper line available in the store.

Carla created the door hanger using: A Christmas Carol, Santa Express papers and labels. She stitched the outer edge of her base page using her sewing machine and layered it with the labels, ribbons and embellishments. Did you notice how she used the Graphic 45 buttons to connect the wire to hang on the door and tied it off with some great ribbon! CUTE!!
