"I love step cards, I just think they look so pretty standing up the way they do!  This one is pretty simple, I just used a cut-apart from Midnight Masquerade in the center and then added some strips from design paper.  Inside the card, I added a journaling cut-apart and again, used strips from design paper on either side of the cut-apart." ~Maggi

Tip:  Sometimes, simple is good and it can be a bold statement.  Don't be afraid to use a simple image as the focal point embellished with a flower or trim.  I am guilty of over thinking my projects, and I have a tendency to keep piling on the "stuff", then I say to myself, "Maggi, simple is good, leave it alone!"

Elena shares the beauty of Spring with these gorgeous Secret Garden cards!

Spring Cards  Secret Garden  by Elena Olinevich  product by Graphic45  photo7

"The most longing time for me is an awaiting for the Spring Season. After a long winter time, with no sun, dull and frosty weather I feel such a hunger for the warmth and the sunshine.

That’s why each late January - early February I start creating tons of Spring and Floral cards. I guess it helps me to feel it more close to me.

This time I created 3 cards from the same collection - Secret Garden. It is really so so beautiful, that it makes your creating process smooth and pleasant.

It has so many flowers that you don’t really need to add any embellishments at all.

I enjoy fussy cutting therapy each and every time I take Graphic45 papers.


What I would suggest is to try absolutely different color combinations even if you are making a set of cards. It will help you to try different paper variations. and what is more important is to - enjoy the process and to feel the sunshine coming from the papers." ~Elena

The cards are beautiful, but someone needs to learn that "it's" means "it is." It's not a possessive pronoun. (His and hers don't take apostrophes, which is one way to remember. It really depresses me that I spent money on something I'll have to alter some way before I can use it.

Beautiful!

I so enjoy seeing cards made from your beautiful paper collections...beautiful images and colors. Thanks for these ideas!

Such happy cards! I so enjoyed the photos...bet they were fun to make, too!

I make cards for the recipient. So I tend to make as the special day comes near. I just love the cards today, ,they make me happy!!!

I am going to try the step card! Both designers made beautiful cards!

Cards made with Graphic 45 papers never fail and I love the ones shown today. Thank you so much.

loving all of the flowers on these projects!

Oh what gorgeous projects!! I love the Secret Garden collection--I made a beautiful book for my mother with it--she adores it!

Magical and beautiful! TFS!

Great cards especially the secret garden ones. Love the giveaway would be great to win.

These cards are so gorgeous and I LOVE the colors from Midnight Masquerade!

Love the different versions of the card by Elena, in various color combos. Everything is just amazing!

Gorgeous cards. Really neat easel card. Thanks for sharing with us!

Beautiful cards......time to step up my creativity with dimension! I sitll love to mail and give cards. We may complain about the price of a 50 cent stamp, but in reality 50 cents is such an inexpensive way to brighten someone's day! To keep up with my obsession I'm back to making them. I even use deconstructed greeting cards I receive to create new cards to give. But works of art like these are for the very very special family and friends in my life!

Ahh... Nature's Sketchbook, my current favorite! I would love to win some to compliment what I have already purchased! Thanks for card inspiration today. It is all beautiful!

This card is stunning!

Oh My Goodness all these cards are so Lovely. I especially Love the three Cards using the Secret Garden Collection. Thank you for the Gorgeous Inspiration.

Beautiful cards!! All the layering and fussy cutting is spectacular! Thanks so much for sharing!

Beautiful cards from both sets! Love the step cards because, as Maggie noted, they look so pretty when they are open & standing♡

The cards are just wonderful! What different looks you can get with the different collections that Graphic 45 creates!

This is such a beautiful collection! Nature at it's finest!!

Lovely cards. I love this nature collection. Would love to win this package, it's fantastic. Got my fingers crossed.
Thanks G45 for the giveaway.
Regards from Barcelona
