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

It's a Good Day to Have a Good Day with Graphic 45!

  2017 Planner, Place in Time, by Kathy Clement, Product by Graphic 45, Photo 16

We think it is indeed a good day to have a good day! Kathy Clement makes it even better with this awesome 2017 planner! Let's take a look:

2017 Planner, Place in Time, by Kathy Clement, Product by Graphic 45, Photo 16

"I am a list girl.  My motto is “if it isn’t written down, it isn’t going to happen.”  My creativity is definitely linked to how organized I am.  If my brain (or my home/studio)  is cluttered, my mojo takes a hike.  That’s why I designed this 2017 “It’s a Good Day to Have a Good Day” planner to be my “list central”.  There is room inside for daily to do lists, a monthly calendar, design team deadlines, shopping lists, creative ideas, receipts, menu planning and more.

I used bits and pieces of older Graphic 45 collections along with the newly released A Place in Time Deluxe Collector’s Edition to design a planner that is filled with inspiring images and colors.  With this planner by my side, 2017 is shaping up to be a year filled with order and creativity.  Hooray!" ~Kathy

Tip: I included folios in my design so I can add photos of events, or keep a photographic record of my favorite projects throughout the year.

Tip: Custom paper clips or binder clips are all the rage.  While they are adorable, they are also expensive.  Why not create your own custom  embellies using simple supplies like paper clips, chipboard, postage stamp images or novelty buttons?  I have a short YouTube video to show you how easy it is to make your own.  These also look fabulous on cards and in scrapbook layouts.

Tip: The internet is loaded with free printable calendars and to do lists. Use these to create a simple organization system within your planner.  I found the cute ones I used in my planner at Botanical Paperworks.

Tip: When 2019 rolls around, I can just print new calendars and lists and I’ll be ready to roll!

A 2017 Keepsake Album!

  Graphic 45 2017 Year in Review by Pam Bray with Tutorial Photo 1_2975 (990x1024)

We are loving our Design Team's wonderful albums for 2016 and 2017! Today, Pam Bray shares a brilliant Keepsake Album for 2017 using various collections and lots of beauty! She even has a tutorial below. Let's take a look:

Graphic 45 2017 Year in Review by Pam Bray with Tutorial Photo 1_2975 (990x1024)

“I enjoy creating an album that I call my Year in Review. It helps me to pick some of my favorite photos each month of our adventures throughout the year. I can easily place the photos, journal entries and other small items in the album for our family and friends to look through at the end of each year. This year I am using a mix of Graphic 45 Place in Time and Children’s Hour to create my 2017 Year in Review Album. I think that both collections flow nicely together and will be a wonderful keepsake for 2017.” ~Pam
