We love this glowing page from the incredible Nadya. Her ideas are so effervescent. Enjoy this amazing layout and tutorial!

"It's great to work with paper, covering it with layers of paint and stamps - you feel a real artist who fears nothing and spoiling for a colorful fight! I wanted to make a very bright, golden New Year Lay Out, add beautiful stamps and paint them in a color of page. I wanted to make this work with lots of layers. I hope I may inspire you to make the bright Merry Christmas page with fine Graphic 45 materials!" ~Nadya

Nichola always adds such imagination and whimsy to her project. Add some elfish mischief to your holidays with this great idea from Nichola!

"Inspired by Yumi’s amazing little suitcases I decided to create my own little travel case. I converted a  Staples Book Box into a little suitcase, then created a homey elf house within. I’ve used a mash-up of three different collections for this piece: 'Cats & Dogs', 'Away with me', and 'Night Before Christmas'. The interior features a fireplace, complete with screen and pipecleaner flames, Christmas cards on the mantle, tree, gifts and more. The little wire loveseat even has tiny cushions made from Graphic 45 fabric! "~Nichola
