Nichola amazes us with a Jane Austen inspired hat box, slippers, and shoebox. Her imagination and creativity knows no bounds!

"I’ve been wanting to create a Jane Austen inspired something for a while. What started out as a quest to make a paper bonnet quickly grew to include a hat box, slippers and shoe box. The slippers are a variation of a pattern by Glenda Waterworth. The boxes are simple square and round boxes I crafted to size (which is actually pretty darned small). As a jumping off point I chose ‘Robin’s Egg’ from Cordinations Signature Series Graphic 45 Lights and coordinated with several papers from Botanical Tea." ~Nichola

Next, we have the most beautiful tags by Andrew with beautiful memories and photos of his family!

"The inspiration for this project was the Core’dinations cardstock colours. The Graphic 45 signature series colours are wonderful to use and I love how they are a perfect match with Graphic 45 paper collections. I have demonstrated this through the use of 6 different collections and the cardstock colours I think match best. I also asked my children what their favorite colours were and made a tag with a photo of each of them.

Tip: When using dies with open sections you use contrasting cardstock colours on the back of the die cut images as I have on the picture wheel used on these tags." ~Andrew

Wouldn't you love to receive this beautiful card? Lori tells you the inspiration for this beautiful Baby 2 Bride card below.

"My neighbors are expecting their first little girl and I knew I wanted to make them a card to congratulate their family. I couldn’t think of a more perfect collection to use “Baby to Bride” to create for them a heartfelt wish. I can’t wait to hold their new little bundle of joy, soon enough.

I like to layer my projects and a great way to add that extra layering detail is with Core’dinations paper. The colors match Graphic 45 collections making it super easy to blend together. I used an embossing folder on the Core’dinations paper and then sanded to really make the embossed portion pop. It takes a plain sheet of paper and turns it’s into a real WOW. The chubby little babies were then fussy cut and layered over the paper along with some various embellishments. I also finished off the interior of my cards as I always want the inside to be pretty like the outside." ~Lori

Such beautiful and creative projects today! Especially like the inside of Lori's card.
