Graphic 45 Daring Door Plates

Hello everyone!

I am pleased to bring you another one of my Graphic 45 team projects for June. Graphic 45 has beautiful metal embellishments which includes door plates. There are many uses for these wonderful embellishments and today I will show you how I used one in my design.

Mini books are fabulous and a great alternative to a larger 12 x 12 album. Here I used Bo Bunny’s 9x9 Bare Naked Album and covered it with Graphic 45’s “Once Upon a Springtime” papers.

The book plate was painted with Manila acrylic paint, then sprinkled with white glitter before it was dry. Once dry, I added stickles on the flourishes for extra shine. The door plates are easy to use and attach to your project using brads or glue. I used brads here so there would not be a chance of the plate coming off over the years. 

Here are the inside pages of the album:

Album: Bo Bunny 3-Ring Bare Naked Binder 9"x 9"-W/6 Chipboard Pages
Patterned Paper: Once Upon A Springtime
Flowers, Leaves and Stems: Bazzill and Prima
Bling: Prima
Ribbon: May Arts
Door Knob: Graphic 45
Chipboard Word Titles: We R Memory Keepers
Pearl Pen: Viva Decor
White Opaque Pen: Uniball Signo
Punches: Martha Stewart Crafts
Bloomers: Webster's Pages
Dies: Spellbinders
Die Cutting System: Spellbinders
Resin Swag: Melissa Frances
Inks: Ranger Distress Ink
Pearls: Kaisercraft
Doily: We R Memory Keepers
