It's a beautiful Wednesday for Botanicabella! Today, Maggi Harding and Arlene Cuevas have brilliant ideas with this Deluxe Collector's Edition and we cannot wait to share it with you, G45ers! Enjoy this great day of inspiration.
"I was super excited to see Botanicabella being re-released! To me, it's that one Graphic 45 collection that is just a little bit different from all the others. The nature colors that characterize this collection were perfect for my photo taken in the rain forest at Olympic National Park. I border punched several different papers and layered them underneath my photo and then fussy cut leaves, butterflies and a bird to dress up my nature scene.
Tip: Try popping up your photo, as I have done, on your next layout to give it emphasis." ~Maggi

"I created this 5 ½ x 5 ½ card featuring Graphic 45’s Botanicabella papers. I’m so excited about this paper collection being re-released in a Collector’s Edition pack. It speaks true classic, Graphic 45. I love all the butterflies, flowers and vintage images, it’s definitely one of my favorite collections to work with. Then again… I love them all! :-)
Tip: Use 80-110 weight cardstock, especially for cards that will contain many layers and embellishments. This will ensure your card doesn’t bend and fold where you don’t want it to!" ~Arlene
