Take the Graphic 45 Color Challenge!
We have a very exciting week here on the Graphic 45 blog. We are sharing our Graphic 45 Color Challenge! One of the first assignments we gave our Design Team was to take the light and dark colors of our Core'dinations Cardstock and choose three colors to make a beautiful creation. And this talented Design Team more than delivered amazing creations! Have you ever started a project with a set of colors? It's a great challenge if your crafting mojo is running low. Maybe we'll inspire you to try it yourself this week! Today, we have three projects from the amazing Katie Zoey Ho, Ginger Ropp, and Yumi Muraeda. Enjoy the Color Challenge from Graphic 45!

"I’ve found this non-functional weighing scale that I had previously bought at one of $2 thrift stores which is not working really well. Sometimes, things that are bought too cheaply has a tendency to just dump it away when it's malfunction. Well, I opt to alter it, transforming this little weighing scale to something I can keep some of my favorite French Country recipes..." ~Katie
