"Hi all.. You know I love to upcycle things and today I’m going to show you what I did with some of the Graphic 45 Packages and with an old box lid.. Also I use the button I got at CHA 2017 from the Graphic 45 booth.. it is beautiful and I have so many memories about so I was thinking to put it in a special place and that’s when my idea come! Using the old lid of a box and transform it in to a shadow box to keep my beautiful button! Also I use one of the packages from the Ornate Metal Keys and I die cut some tags from the packages of the Mixed Media Albums.. Did you know G45 has stamps and a collection of  Dye Inks? I got so much fun using some stamps on vellum and over the designer paper…All the steps are in the YouTube Tutorial I hope you like it!  XOXO" ~ Magda Cortez

"Upcycling has become a big trend now and it allows you to transform an old piece you may throw out into something beautiful. With Mother’s Day right around the corner, I decided to create a beautiful gift box for your mom or that special woman in your life, out of an old taffy box and used the Portrait of a Lady collection as well as some Staples. I hope you enjoy all the photos and are inspired to choose a piece to upcycle at home." ~Katelyn Grosart

If your box is tight when closing and opening it, adhere washi tape in the corners to help prevent ruining the corners of the patterned paper.

Unique Papercrafting (1)

Hello G45ers!

"My two favorite crafting techniques are fussy cutting and layering and I have combined a little of both in this shadow box.

It is very relaxing for me to fussy cut, I can spend hours and hours doing it! Then I love to play with the little pieces and try to create a scene with dimension and depth.

Shadow boxes are ideal to try these techniques, they give a proper and delimited space to create different compositions, and they are more versatile than you might think. This is an example of that using a shadow box to decorate an album cover. " ~ Marina BlauKitchen

Tips:

  • Use the scissors you feel most comfortable with. Fussy cut should be a pleasure, not a martyr! Try different scissors until you find “the ones made for you”.
  • Cut apart the piece you want to fussy cut, then try to move the paper instead the scissors while cutting.
  • I recommend using a precision cutter(x-acto knife) to cut small spaces inside the piece you are cutting.
  • Layering is a very interesting and entertaining technique. Try more than one possibility before making a final decision for your design.
  • Add cardstock or cardboard little pieces to raise the figures and make them stand out from the other figures and from the background.

Hello G45ers!

If you're in the Anaheim, California area be sure to stop by the Stamp & Scrapbook Expo April 6th - 8th and say hello to Diane, Aimee, and Jeff of the Graphic 45 family.  We are selling our full catalog and hosting Make-n-Takes all weekend!  For our full 2017 calendar, check out our Facebook Events page

Make everyday tasks like taking notes just that much brighter by creating this Nature Sketchbook notepad or make a few of these to give as gifts.  Kathy also shares four pro-tips that can be used on different types of projects time and time again.  Let's get started.  

 

Botanical Butterfly Notepad Tutorial    Nature Sketchbook  by Kathy Clement  Product by Graphic 45  Photo 8

 

"We all love Graphic 45 Metal Staples, don’t we?  Even the packaging is gorgeous!  Those sturdy chipboard tags with the graceful shaped edges and vintage style grommets are too pretty to toss in the recycle bin!  Why not upcycle them into a stylish and practical notepad instead?  

That’s exactly what I did and I love the fact that not only is this Nature Sketchbook Beautiful Botanical notepad attractive, it is also sturdy.  I can find my notepad on my desk because of the bright colors that Nature Sketchbook lends.  As an added bonus, the design means that the notepad can be refilled with a new sticky note pad once the current one is used up.  

With Mother’s Day coming up, this simple project would make a wonderful gift for Mom!  Make several to keep on hand for last minute birthday gifts, get well gifts, hostess gifts or any other special occasion." ~Kathy Clement

Tips:

  1. Don’t worry about torn edges on your packaging.  Just paint the edges with black chalk paint to cover them, and you’re good to go!
  2. Run ribbon through the grommet and tie into a bow for a clever and attractive closure.
  3. Create a hinge for your ATC Policy Envelope before gluing it down.  Now you can decorate the front and also tuck little notes or receipts inside the envelope.
  4. Shape and layer Nature Sketchbook die cut flowers to create a custom embellishment for your notepad.

"Hi All..  Today I’m going to show you my new iPad Case!!! I got my new iPad a few weeks ago and I was thinking mmm.. I need a unique case for my iPad and then I come up with the idea… if I love G45 why I can’t do an iPad Case by myself!! And I really love the result.. the DIY Craft paper is perfect because you don’t need to worry about the size of you project and it come with 2 sheets of paper! One to use and one to keep! Hahahaa …if you are a G45 lover as I am you should try to do this too!! Also you can do it for your tablet or your phone! Just change the dimensions it is so easy!

I did a video tutorial I hope you like it!

XOXO" ~ Magda Cortez

Tip:
One of my favorites techniques is the use of the Mod Podge to make more durable projects. I love the matte finish because it doesn't change the color or texture of your paper!

Stunning Ideas with Secret Garden

  Spring-Secret garden-tutorial by Lena Astafeva-product by Graphic 45-1

 We are so glad that Secret Garden is back as a Deluxe Collector's Edition! It's such a perfect Spring collection full of beautiful light and airy colors. Today, Sandy Trefger and Lena Astafeva share two fabulous ideas and tutorials with this great collection! Let's get into it: 

Paper Bag Mini Album  Secret Garden  Tutorial by Sandy Trefger  Product by Graphic 45  Photo 001

"I love to create something out of items you normally throw away.  One evening,  I was having dinner out with the family at a local restaurant.  On the table the silverware for each person was in these neat Kraft colored paper bags.  There were four of us so of course when we took our silverware out of the paper bag I grabbed them all and used them to create this adorable mini album.  The rustic look of the bags made me think of the outdoors and of springtime.  Which then made me think of Graphic 45’s Deluxe Collector’s Edition, Secret Garden!   I was excited to get started on it and more excited when it was finished.  I hope I’ve inspired you to create something beautiful out of your “trash.”  Happy Crafting!" ~Sandy

Sandy's Paper Bag Mini Album Tutorial



Paper Bag Mini Album  Secret Garden  Tutorial by Sandy Trefger  Product by Graphic 45  Photo 002

Tip:  To create a mini album out of paper bags, use a bone folder to get a good, crisp edge anywhere you fold the bags.  Also, trim off the ends of the bags if needed to get a more uniform size so your pages line up right.  If your bags have some printed words or advertising on them, don’t consider them unusable.  Most of it will be covered up with the pretty papers and embellishments and any that still shows just adds to the character of the album.
