Today, we have two such beautiful projects from two incredible designers! Tanya Dudkina and Arlene Cuevas has such incredible beauties to share with you today. Let's jump into the inspiration!

First, Tanya shares an incredible altered suitcase using World's Fair! What a brilliant project. Check out her tutorial below!

"Hi! Today I’m all about making something useful and nice for my craft room. I decided to paint an old suitcase and add it more vintage and French look with the help of gorgeous Graphic 45 World’s fair collection. It took me an hour to alter it into a box for my threads and cross stitching stuff. Hope you enjoy a tutorial I prepared for you in case if you want to make something like this for you crafty goodies. Thanks for watching!" ~Tanya

"I was feeling a bit nostalgic and grabbed one of these original kraft Art Boxes released a few years back as part of Graphic 45’s Staples collection. I altered the box using the Home Sweet Home paper collection. This album is the perfect keepsake for commemorating family memories in your home. After all, family is the heart of the home. :-)

An altered case and a beautiful album, what a great way to start a Tuesday!

What beautiful projects , what style ? you are
so artistic i love your projects.

I don't think I have ever met a box I didn't like! Especially if they are altered with G45 products!!
Tanya and Arlene's creations are lovely! I can think of lots of little things I would stash in a little suitcase like that!! One day I will find one of them so I can alter it! TFS!

I agree with the post just before mine there's nothing about your papers that I don't love. Thanks for all the wonderful papers you make

As usual, I love all things G45

Love the suitcase! I just altered one with Couture and Typography. I will have to remember to do the texturing on the next project

Happy Birthday, Diane!

LOVE all the wonderful inspiration!!!

Oh I really don't know what to say when I come here. I just go oh, WOW, oh, WOOOW and melting in front of my computer. LOOOVE all Graphic 45 projects!! These two today are stunning!! :-D Thank you for sharing beauty with us. :-D

Happy Birthday Diane. May you have a million more and a million more gorgeous project ideas.

Happy birthday Diane!!! I hope your birthday week is better than you hoped!

I love seeing all these projects! Happy Birthday to a wonderful Lady X

Home Sweet Home is my all time favorite G45 paper collection! Arlene's video gave me a wonderful "tour" of her project as well as enough information to make my own version. Not into mixed media techniques, but I can well appreciate the beauty of that altered suitcase project. Nice blog entries today. Thanks!

Diane I hope you B-day week is going great. For I know I wish I had lots of money so I can have ALL your products I can't get over all the Beautiful work done by everyone. Thank You All for all of our fun.

Tanya and Arlene do such beautiful work !

Great Work! I love the mini album and that suit case is gorgeous.

Feliz cumpleaños Diane! Beautiful projects, I love them!

Happy birthday Diane!!!
Love Love Love the suitcase! Just gorgeous.

How cool both of those projects are! Mini's are a favorite and I love altered art. Great work!

Both are so fabulous - I could pick a favorite.

Two great creative projects using the wonderful G45 paper collections ans staples:)

Tanya - your altered case looks more like you took HOURS to create it. Lovely.

Arlene - another wonderful, creative mini - so pretty and colorful. Love it.

Wonderful projects as usual. Just cut into my first ever graphic 45 purchase that ive had for years!
Will definitely try some more now :-)

Gilded Lily is so "Lady Like". I love the colors and the designs. Beautiful work again from Graphic 45. You never cease to amaze me. Just lovely!

Fantastic projects!
