And now it's time for some craft highlights from our Ning site! Periodically we like to feature some of the amazing crafts that have been uploaded to our Ning site by crafters just like you! We love to see what's being created with our papers. It is such a thrill to see the degree of incredible talent that you all possess. These are a few fabulous crafts from Ning, beginning with this amazing Olde Curiosity Shoppe file organiser by Lyn Bernatovich. What a whimsical and imaginative way to stay organized! This piece is absolutely delightful!
Here we have another gorgeous creation, A Ladies' Diary Afternoon Tea card by Helen Philips. Look at all of those beautiful layers and fun fussy cutting! This card really captures the feminine charm of A Ladies' Diary!
This next craft is just amazing! It's a Happy Haunting altered cigar box and mini album by Lindsey Amschler. This is such a clever way to use Happy Haunting! Lindsey has created a fabulous Halloween scene with this adorable work of art!
Next we have this precious Little Darlings layout by Gerry van Gent. This LO is so adorable! Beautiful borders, delicate fussy cutting and artful dimension make this LO an absolute treasure. This amazing creation is sure to plant a smile on your face!
And now we take a lavish journey with this "Waiting for Paris" layout featuring A Ladies' Diary by Karen Zueger. This LO is not only completely stunning, but it is also exquisitely made with lots of fabulous embellishments and paper layering. Every little detail in this LO is just remarkable! It has such wonderful movement. The heart-warming central photo only adds to the allure of this remarkable craft creation. Wow!
We encourage all of you to upload your Graphic 45 crafts to our Ning site! Share your talents and connect with a great crafting community!
And now it's time to get crafty with Sharon Ngoo of the Graphic 45 design team! This is a great sketchbook that Sharon made using only Graphic 45 Staples and Olde Curiosity Shoppe Cling Stamps. No Graphic 45 patterned papers were used to create this little treasure. And yet it still has all the vintage charm and beauty that Graphic 45 is known for! Sharon even made a fun tutorial to show you how to create a sketch book of your very own! Take it away, Sharon!
