Enjoy the Moment with Children's Hour

  Enjoy the Moment, Children's Hour, by Robin Shakoor, Product by Graphic 45, Photo 1

It's Friday and a beautiful day to remember to "Enjoy the Moment!" Robin Shakoor and Annette Green share brilliant projects with Children's Hour, our newest calendar collection. This collection is so versatile and perfect for so many projects! Let's take a look.

Robin made this stunning layout that is so stunning, but only took a few techniques to complete. Beautiful!

"I created a quick and easy layout using just a few techniques.  I matted my  photo and placed it in the center of the page.  I created banners using stickers from the Decorative Sticker and November Collective sheets.  To finish the deisgn, I added flowers, die cut leaves and chipboard buttons.

Tip:  Creating  layout pages can be fast and easy just by using a few embellishments and well placed strips of paper." ~Robin

Now, Annette will truly wow you with this amazing star calendar. What a perfect way to celebrate the year!

"I absolutely adore every calendar collection Graphic 45 produces because the creative ideas are endless and useful throughout the entire year. I created this tabletop “calendar” with a fun star-shaped base so it can be on display all year long. Perfect for a table centerpiece for all to see and enjoy. I’ve also adorned six ATC tags which can be used during holidays on packages, a bouquet of flowers or attached to greeting cards.

Although I’ve called it a calendar, it’s one of those projects you can decide for yourself how you’ll use it. Each month has a pocket with an ephemera card tucked inside. Here are just a few ideas how you might use this:

A perpetual birthday/event reminder.

Attach a small calendar to each (I’ve provided a free 2016 printable on my blog at this link:  

    http://www.annettescreativejourney.blogspot.com/2016/01/happy-new-year-and-free-mini-calendar.html)

Write your monthly goals or dreams.

A thankful journal; jot down something every day you’re thankful for. Then review at the end of the year.

Children’s accomplishments or good deeds.

Chore list for families with several children. Rotate tasks each month to keep it fun and interesting." ~Annette

  Graphic 45 Featured Artist Anne Elisabeth Rostad and her incredible work! #graphic45

"My name is Anne Rostad and I live in Norway and I am a mother of 2 grown up sons who gives me so much pleasure. Creating has been my all time passion . It started when I was a little girl and had fun making animals and houses from things I found in the wood. Later at school we learned how to sew in girls class and I did not like that at all since I had to follow recipe, so i asked to be in the boy`s class where i could make things out of wood, clay and metal. Think it was then i really started love creating. As the only girl in class l i got make whatever I wanted so I had a lot of fun. Later I found out that sewing was a lot f fun when I could make whatever I wanted without any recipe. Started scrapbooking for about 7 years ago and since then I have in love with this hobby. The 1. paper I bought from Graphic 45 was the Fashionista Haute Couture and then I was hooked and tried to find out where I could get more :-) There is so much fun to do with this gorgeous and versatile papers and I love creating 3D projects and mini albums with a lot of detail to bring the projects to life. Many of the techniques i used in quilting I could use with fussy cutting and layering so it is very much the same, but more possibilities with papers. I am so happy and thankful to be a featured artist on the G45 blog again and I also want to thank you all for your support over the years.

                                   Have fun creating :-)
                                             Hugs, Anne"

"Made a card to go with the hot ear photo album and used the same World's Fair collection from Graphic 45. So much fun to fussy cut out in this paper collection and I also used chipboard cut outs, stickers, coordinate stamp set and pockets and tags. The card closes up with seam binding colored with Tim Holtz broken china distress spray.

"Have made a Fairytale Princess Castle with 2 lightning towers to hold the Graphic 45 Gilded Lily Mini Album. There is a tutorial here on my blog on how to make the base for this castle.It is all made out of chipboard and paper and decorated with pearl trim, die cut outs and flower pots.

  12x12_LO_Childrens Hour_ArleneCuevas_Petaloo Blog Hop_Photo1

Our brand new calendar collection Children's Hour is in stores now! This amazing collection has so much beautiful vintage imagery and can make your 2016 come alive. Arlene Cuevas and Lori Williams share two great ideas on how to use this fun new collection.

Arlene made a beautiful layout for March using Children's Hour and Petaloo flowers. This is such a great page.

"I created this layout of my boys using Graphic 45’s new Children’s Hour paper collection. The Greens and Purples for the March papers are an awesome combination and the imagery and designs on the papers were so fun to work with and the purple Petaloos matched perfectly! I can’t wait to create an annual calendar with this collection. :-)" ~Arlene
