As we celebrate the final days of May, what about this absolutely gorgeous card from Nadya? Love these colors and the ATCs she includes on the cover. Wow!

"I love layering and  to use a lot of different materials in projects! To create this card I was inspired by Graphic 45 Staples  Artist Trading Tags-Ivory. I decided, why not use immediately 2 tags? Also I found it interesting to combine two collections:Time to Flourish and Baby 2 Bride. They were so suitable! Fabric and lace helped create volume and lightness. Graceful fussy cutting details added finished form to my card! Wish you have a perfect time with scissors and paper!!!" ~Nadya

Talking About Graphic 45 Tags!

Artisan_Style_Tag_Collection_Rhea_Freitag_4_of_5

We know our G45ers love making tags! Today, our Design Team will absolutely wow you with their gorgeous tag ideas. Rhea Freitag shares a series of tags, and Ginger Ropp has a mini tutorial you cannot miss with our Graphic 45 Tag Staples. What a fun day! 

First, we have this beautiful Artisan Style tag series from Rhea. See what inspired these gorgeous tags:

"This project was inspired by a recent swap I participated in along with a few of my Graphic 45 team mates.  I wanted to capture the true, Artisan Style, so this collection was perfect for this task.  The black staples tags made for the perfect base.  I chose to round the corners on some of my elements to mimic the shape of the tag.  I love this small detail.  Of course even a simple tag gets a little bit of metal added when I have my way, so I had to include the classic Graphic 45 keyholes and ornate keys." ~Rhea

A gorgeous set of Artisan Style tags by Rhea! Love each and every one #graphic45

Rhea uses our regular Black Tag Album Staples for this gorgeous series of tags!

Here is a fantastic board album by Annette using Raining Cats & Dogs. Check out her video below as well!

"I knew when Raining Cats & Dogs first came out, I had to make a mini album and now I’ve finally gotten around to it. With its interactive pockets and flaps, it’s a fun and simple album for pictures of my sweet Suki. Although I chose all the dog options in the Tags & Pockets, stickers and paper cut-aparts, the cat imagery can easily be swapped in their place for those cat-lovers out there. In my video I share a walk-through of the pages. I hope you enjoy it!" ~Annette

Give Your Projects Some Artisan Style!

Artisan-Style-Graduation-5-x-7-Card-Graphic-45-Annette-Green-4-of-6

Have you crafted with Artisan StyleG45ers? We are loving the projects our Design Team are creating with this collection. Today, Annette Green and Ginny Nemchak share two fabulous ideas. What a great Monday!

First, Annette has a graduation card and tutorial using Artisan Style!

"It’s almost that time of year: Graduation! Our long-time friends’ daughter is graduating from the University of Florida soon, so I decided to make her a special card. We’ve watched this wonderful girl grow up from her toddler years and now she’s heading off into the working world, already secure in a position with SpaceX in California. While, she is and will always be a Gator, I opted not to go with the tradition blue and orange colors in my card, but rather send her off in a more classic style, using blacks and tans with accents of green in the lovely and sophisticated Artisan Style collection." ~Annette
