A December Daily with Graphic 45!

  December Daily Mini Album, by Elena Olinevich, product by Graphic45, photo6

We're about to enter into a fun and busy month - December is on its way! We challenged our designers to make a December Daily if they wanted, and oh wow! The December Dailies they have created have really amazed us. You are going to leave so inspired after seeing the beautiful project by Elena Olinevich today! Let's see her inspiration for this awesome project:

December Daily Mini Album, by Elena Olinevich, product by Graphic45, photo6

"December is a month full of expectations, miracles and other things that especially kids like to do. I made December Daily mini album and used Tags and Pocket Mini Album.

It’s so easy to put there the shots, recipes for Christmas Baking, the tickets to the Christmas Tree Celebration Party and other things that you want to keep as the memories for CHristmas preparations.

I made a lot of fussy cutting for the cover of my mini album, however I left almost unembellished my pages inside. I only covered it with the beautiful papers from St.Nicholas.

However I used some die cuts to add them to some of the pages." ~Elena

Give Beauty with a Cafe Parisian Box + Card

Cafe Parisian Card and Box, Project by Alexandra Morein, Product by Graphic 45, Photo 5 

Let's kick off the week with a beautiful gift set from Alexandra Morein! We love this bright and beautiful storage for macarons! Wouldn't this be a great host gift for Thanksgiving or to give as a Christmas gift? We love it! Let's see Alexandra's inspiration behind this great design:

Cafe Parisian Card and Box, Project by Alexandra Morein, Product by Graphic 45, Photo 5

"Today I am sharing a little treat box for macaroons and a matching card, created with the new Café Parisian collection. I think this paper is absolutely great not only for making mini albums, embellishing recipe books and making other décor pieces, but it is also perfect for quick presents’ projects.

I created a box for holding 6 tiny macaroon cookies, cut out a window in the lid, covered the sides of the box and added several cut out images from the “Café Parisian”. It did not demand a ton of time or materials, but turned a tiny box into a beautiful item, which will warm the heart of the one getting it ☺ You add a card for a personal message and your heartfelt present is ready." ~Alexandra

"It’s almost the time of the year! And we need to be prepared! And as some of you know I’m living by the beach.. So I was thinking why don’t have a Christmas by the Sea the theme of this Christmas! and with Petaloo and Xyron you can make this easy and fast home decor!

Also when I was editing my pictures I was thinking if I add some LED Lights inside the crystal base and some Christmas balls will look awesome!

Thanks Petaloo and Xyron you are a great pairing for my project!!" ~Magda

About Roses Layout, Off to the Races, by Elena Olinevich, product by Graphic45, photo05

"For my layout I used Xyron Creative Station, it’s so useful especially when you use the delicate die cuts , as it’s quite tricky to use an adhesive on all of the small and tiny parts of it. and this tool was a decision how to escape the glue signs. I’ve just put the die cut into it and here you go - you’ve got a perfect adhesive on the backside of it.

 I love using flowers on my projects, and I enjoyed playing with Petaloo flowers on my feminine layout. I’ve made some fussy cutitng flowers from the papers as well adding the fabric flowers." ~Elena
