Annette Green got to play with this collection and made the most incredible card and tag station! This is such a brilliant project and we are so excited to share it with you today!

Midnight Masquerade card and tag station by Annette!

"Midnight Masquerade has such colorful imagery and beautiful patterns! While the 'A side' of the paper collection has it distinct theme, I found the 'B side' calling to me for this project. The patterns remind me of the Vera Bradley style. By playing around with Graphic 45 Staples like ATC book boxes, a kraft book box, claw feet and tags, I developed a functional home decor piece to serve as a card & tag station. The idea is to have ready-to-go notecards, tags, a pen, and some post-it pads all in one fashionable caddy. The larger Kraft book box slides out from between two ATC boxes and contains simple notecards and coordinating envelopes. The kraft tags which come in the book boxes are adorned and ready to attach to a gift, bottle of wine, or gift card, just to name a few ideas. The entire set sits on a wooden plank covered with more paper and adorned with metal claw feet." ~Annette

First, we must announce yesterday's Sneak Peek prize winners. Our randomly chosen winners are...

From the Blog:

-Michelle hempstead: Graphic 45 never fails to disappoint. Beautiful nostalgic line with great colors. I love this new line and would love to create a mini album

From Facebook:

-Shari Hensley Garza: I ❤ this line. I purchased an old photo album at a thrift store a few years back and it was filled with old black & white glossy PR photos of all the late, great stars (Rita Hayworth, Lucille Ball, Frank Sinatra... etc). The type of pictures fans could write them for. I've always wanted to do a coffee table book with them to show them off and this is the perfect paper for that.

From Instagram:

A Gorgeous Easel Calendar from Elena!

  Easel Calendar, Children's Hour, by Elena Olinevich, product by Graphic45, photo1

Elena Olinevich loves fussy cutting and shares how to create a gorgeous cover using fussy cut images! We love her layering and dimension on this cover with the great calendar pages following. You will love her video tutorial below to show her process of making this cover. Let's take a look at this fun weekend share:

Easel Calendar, Children's Hour, by Elena Olinevich, product by Graphic45, photo1

"I like filling the calendar and planning my day, it gives me the feeling of time control. However I am still short in time dealing with daily routine. So I thought it would be a good chance to create a beautiful calendar and embellish it with fussy cutting details. Meanwhile I didn’t want and I wasn’t able to put many layers as I ‘ve used to do in my projects. So I only added some cut outs to fill in the pages.

Actually I couldn’t resist and made my cover more busy with fussy cutting. I filmed a from start to finish video so that you could watch my process of combining all the elements and there are some tips that I would like to share with you while embellishing your covers:

  1. If you are using dies to create  the beautiful shapes, keep the negative leftovers and use it for one of your layers. You will get a beautiful shape, a background and a background with a window at the same time.
  2. Since you can not use the dimension for the calendar, however to escape using the flat layers, I suggest to use thin foam pads or a piece of thin cardboard. it allows the layers to pop up on the background and seize the dimension." ~Elena
