Good Morning, G45ers! We have a feeling you are going to be very excited about our last day of Sneak Peeks! One of our biggest customer requests is to re-release older collections. Today, we are introducing our Deluxe Collector's Edition of our first two collections we ever released! Baby 2 Bride and Times Nouveau were our very first collections and kicked off this grand adventure of Graphic 45. When you buy these collector's editions, you will get in one handy pack a paper pad, and NEW cardstock stickers and chipboard tags that were not included in the first inception of these two collections. They have also been digitally enhanced to give you even more beautiful papers then when they were first released. Aren't you so excited? We certainly are! Also, today we will show you Sneak Peeks of our new Staples. You are going to love these new fun items. Stick around to the end for a stunning Botanical Tea creation by Donna Espiritu! What an absolutely brilliant day on the blog.

Enjoy a wonderful tutorial from Diane's workshop on how to make an upcycled dresser using Baby 2 Bride. What an adorable piece!
This small set of drawers was painted a complimentary pink for the new classic release of Baby to Bride. First the knobs were carefully removed with pliers that had been wrapped with several layers of paper towel so as not to scratch or break the them.
Little pieces like this should have all surfaces covered. It's easy to forget the back sometimes but it really finishes it nicely when done. The back is covered with a blue diamond paper called 'From this Moment'.
The drawer cabinet is going to be covered with 'Sentimental Baby' in one piece that wraps around the sides. This pattern is made from several pieces of scrap paper and taped together. Then the pattern is carefully transferred to the paper. Take your time when cutting it out and adhering so you get it perfectly in place.
The drawer fronts are then adhered with the same paper and the knobs replaced.
The pink gingham paper which is on the reverse side of 'Sentimental Baby' is used on the top of the cabinet and a blue border from 'Birdy Baby Blues' is layered on top of it.
That same blue border is continued on the top and bottom of the cabinet. The drawers are put in place and the finished drawers are ready for the baby or a bride!

"I altered a frame I bought in a thrift store, like a dollar store in the USA. Originally the color is gold with black stains. I primed the frame with white gesso, about 3 layers (drying after each layer first before painting new gesso). Then I brushed the frame with Mod Podge (matte) before adhering the fuzzy cut flowers. I glued the flower pieces with a glue gun and then brushed several layers of Mod Podge again. I also used Platinum stickles for a little bit of sparkle. I dabbed Mod Podge dimensional magic to the butterflies and monogram." ~Donna
