Today, we are so excited to re-introduce one of our most beloved collections - Place in Time, our original calendar collection. So many great pages and imagery for each month! How fun!

But first, let's see who won Nature Sketchbook Sneak Peek prizes yesterday. Our randomly chosen winners are...

From the Blog:

-Debra Reitz: Absolutely gorgeous!

-Mary Lou Sullivan: I've been a Graphic 45 fan for a while now. Each collection is better than the last! Love the vibrant colors and vintage feel of the prints.

From Facebook:

-Matt Doyle: G45 has done it again with a breathtaking collection. I can see my butterflies popping with 3L adhesives.

-Anne-Therese Cermola Luper Oh my gosh!! Oh my gosh!! I cant even begin to tell you how much I need/want this collection. My son was killed in a mva/drunk driver situation. He always comes and visits us as dragonflies and sometimes butterflies. I kid you not. November 8th, will be his 5 year angelversary. I have been so dreading that day. I have been crying for the last two days. Then I get on here, and bam, see this collection. I cant even begin to tell you, what it did for me to see it. This collection is gonna make it possible for me to make some awesome tributes both 3d and mixed media of my son. TY TY TY

Amazing G45 Altered Art!

  Steampunk Box _ Mini Album, Steampunk Debuntante DCE, By Katelyn Grosart, Product By Graphic 45, Photo 1

We love altered art! It's so fun to make gorgeous, dimensional projects. Katelyn Grosart and Magda Cortez share incredible projects that will satisfy our Steampunk lovers and our G45ers ready for Halloween.

Cafe Parisian and Off to the Races are now in stores! #graphic45

Before we jump in the fun, did you know that Cafe Parisian and Off to the Races are now in stores? They are! How fun! Below you will see a great tour from our own Charee Filimoehala with Scrapbook.com!

 

Check out our Store Locator!

Steampunk Box _ Mini Album, Steampunk Debuntante DCE, By Katelyn Grosart, Product By Graphic 45, Photo 1

Katelyn combines some of our Staples with Steampunk Debutante to make a dazzling Steampunk scene! Take a look:

"By combining the ATC Book Box with a Book Box, both in ivory, I was able to create a fabulous three-dimensional piece. With adding some fussy cut images from the Steampunk Debutante Deluxe Collectors Edition to decorate the inside of my ATC Book Box and the outside of the Book Box it embellished it beautifully. To create the mini album, use the three tags found in the book box and add a large tag to complete your album.

Tip: For adhering the paper to the book boxes, use liquid glue as it’s easier to adjust the placement of your paper.

Tip: To finish the outside of your book box, add a door pull to the middle of your book box as well as antique brass claw feet to the four corners." ~Katelyn

Wonderland Secrets Home Decor-Hallowe'en in Wonderland-By Magda Cortez-Product by Graphic 45- Photo 01-04- Project with Tutorial

We are in love with this fabulous creation from Magda Cortez! She so cleverly uses our Small Matchbook Box to truly whisk you to Wonderland!

"I’m so excited with this Halloween Project!! It is like if I was playing with all the images of this beautiful collection.. I use a wood painters palette as a base and wood gears which I paint with the traditional Halloween colors! I love purples, oranges and greens! So it was a perfect combination for this home décor..And the Green Vellum gives the final dimensional touch!!
