Graphic 45 Ning:
First up is this absolutely stunning creation. It's a Christmas Tree featuring A Ladies Diary by Jan Hennings. She individually wrapped little packages and stacked them into a tree shape! Isn't that clever?! Then Jan added some flowing ribbon and a cute little tree skirt to create this feminine holiday home decor piece. We just love it!
Next up is this vibrant and beautiful Bird Song Photo Tray Shadowbox by Sabrina Radeck. There are so many fun photos in this shadowbox. The bright colors and whimsical designs of Bird Song are just perfect in this unique creation! Sabrina also used Graphic 45 Metal Butterflies to add even more charm to this wonderful work of art! Here is what she had to say about it.
"For a Scrapbook Parade Class and my youngest, 24 year old daughter who is in the photos. She's a great welder and very artistic as well. All the Bird Song projects I've made for these classes will go to her when the classes are completed." -Sabrina Radeck
January is just days away! Here is a fantastic Place in Time January 2013 Calendar Page by Carli Groven. The colors in this calendar page are so amazing! All the fun of the winter season really comes to life! What a wonderful way to start the new year!
Here is a wonderfully adorable Little Darlings shabby chic photo frame by Martica Gonzalez. This is such a delightful creation! Martica layered papers from Little Darlings and added gorgeous floral embellishments and ribbons to create this sweet frame. It is a truly heartfelt gift!
"This is a frame I did for a friend that just had a baby." -Martica Gonzalez
Next up is this incredible Place in Time winter layout by Lisa. This is such an amazing use of Place in Time! It is such a great collection for creating exquisite seasonal LOs! Just look at all the amazing detail in this creation: paper layering, delicate stitching on the borders, inking, fussy cutting and incredible embellishments. This LO has everything! What in inspiration!
