Today I thought it would be fun to look at some fabulous layouts featuring our new collections Le Cirque and Curtain Call. These new collections are so much fun to work with and can be used in so many different ways to create something astonishing. Have a look at this sweet-as-can-be Le Cirque LO by Christie Bryant that also features the Graphic 45 Trim Staples. If this isn't fun, I don't know what is!



Here we have another stunning example of layout genius. This LO was created by Tracey Locher using Curtain Call. I love how spacious this LO is, with lavish textures and layers. So pretty! Tracey also used the Graphic 45 Envelope Tag Staples, Trim Staples and Flower Staples to give this LO its romantic charm. Have a look!

Beyond amazing!!! I absolutely LOVE the Curtain Call collection.

Cannot wait to add Le Cirque to my stash! Just gorgeous-ideas galore!

Beautiful. I'm a huge fan of altered thrift items. I love repurposing items in our home. Gorgeous pages, I love the dimension on both.

Love Curtain Call and all the old time feel of the movies/theater. I love to scrapbook, but I really feel a sense of accomplishment when I do a mini album on a certain theme, like our vacations.

My favorite kind of crafts would have to be altered art and ATC cards. I have just started my journey into these 2 crafts and am just amazed by the talented artists I am finding on your blog as well as YouTube. I was first introduced to your products through artists on YouTube and have been smitten ever since.

I can't wait to get my hands on the Le Cirque collection and see those rich colors in person. Thanks for bringing us such beautiful products.

Beautiful LO's :)
My all time favorite would have to be altering!

Altered Art projects Rock my World!


I think I love the look of mini albums. I like that chunky feel of a small album full of goodness.

I am a traditional scrapbooker kind of gal. I like to entrench memorabilia of the event into the pages I create. I also love to do vintage paper crafts around christmas.

I'm ready for some SPRINGTIME!

Altered projects and mini albums have been my projects of choice lately!

WOW!! I too can't wait to play with the LE CIRQUE line and I guess I really like MIXED MEDIA PROJECTS and making MINI BOOKS and FLOWERS have been so fun lately with all of the FABULOUS paper choices!! I LOVE that your papers are FABULOUS for any type of project and that you really think about that when you are designing them!! =) You can tell that alot of thought and LOVE goes into your products and that is why your one of my FAVORITE COMPANIES!! THANKS again for another fun chance to win and have an AWESOME DAY 3 at CHA!! =)

WOW!!! I wish that things will fall down in my post box. =)
I really love to made cards in every shape and I love to create after sketches and templates. =)

Right now, I love mini albums and 12x12 page layouts. Yes, both. I am working on albums for my husbands 85th birthday.....using Proper Gentleman and other G_45 lines. When a guy is turning 85, it takes more than a mini and more than a standard 12x12!! I am loving the challenge. He is helping with the journaling...like pulling teeth though. Love Graphic45!!!

I love making layouts and putting together scrapbooks for my children but mini albums have a special place in my heart as well. I try to do one every other month. I only recently began altering projects and fell in love with it! Ooops! Can't choose, love crafts of all kind!

I'm a fan of layouts. I love laying out my photos and telling the stories. I enjoy finding unique products to use on my layouts like G45 papers and embellies.

i'm a fan of mini albums. i like to recycle old board books into chunky minis, use envelopes to create pages and my new favorite is to create cards and use them on my minis as pages and journaling spots. love graphic 45 papers the add such elegance to anything i make. thanks for the giveaway.

Love the gorgeous LO's!!
I love creating LO's and altered items!!
Thanks for the fabulous Giveaway!!

I love seeing all the altered projects and mini albums that other people come up with. But when it comes down to it, I am a layout girl at heart. I love, love, love making layouts.

My favorite craft has been card making but I am starting to take an interest in altered objects. I have seen some beautiful altered projects using the Graphic 45 paper that have really inspired me to try this new craft out. I would love to win this awesome prize package. Thanks for a chance to win.

Fabulous lo's! Love all the little details. I especially like the pleated paper in the first one and the flowers in the second.

My craft of choice is scrapbooking and mini albums but I'm also dabbling in card making at the moment and hope to try some altered art projects in the near future. :-)

I like to dabble in a lot of paper crafts, but when it comes down to it - I'm really all about the layouts / memory keeping.

I just love it all, the colors, the vintage , and your girls!
Everything is always so beautiful!
I am so looking forward to using these products in the future!

Love the new papers. I can't wait to play with them..

Love the layouts!!

I love to create single layout´s.I love "catching" title's and a fun mix of scrapbook and non scrapbook embellishments.

ohhhhh they are both lovely!!

I enjoy making mini albums for my grandchildren, and then layouts are my next best thing to work on.

Incredible! I've been watching live and recorded pieces of CHA on the net. I love what you did with the booth. As always the best booth around. I can't wait to get ahold of all the new lines.

I love anything crafty, but I think LOs are my favorite!

I love these new paper and I can't wait to get them to start creating.

I go back and forth between layouts and cards -- I'll make a burst of cards and then be totally ready to scrapbook.

I love altered items but I make more layouts because they are more practical and less time consuming

Just gorgeous! Love altered items, mini books & layouts! such beautiful products!

Wow, wish I was at CHA myself as I am reading on store's blogs how wonderful
your booth is! I originally started out as a scrapbooker, but am finding I spend
most of my time making cards. (even
though a card sometimes takes as long
as a layout!)

love the Fun layout! I just bought some graphic45 paper too! It's going to used for layout w/my mom's beach photo from over 40 yrs ago! She looks like those women on the paper! Love it! I love doing layouts, but cards & altered projects come in close second! Thx for sharing! xo

Im usually a 12 x 12 LO girl, but lately Minis are my thing!! Thanks for the chance to win a pkg of my favorite goodies :O)

I'm a 12x12 layout gal; however I love the look of minis but have never tried one. I can't wait to play with Le Cirgue and Curtain Call.

Absolutely beautiful projects!

Beautiful layouts! I'm mostly a cards girl, but I love to create 12x12 layouts as well.

Most of the time i make 12 inch layout's but every once and a wile i love to make en mini album for myself or to give as a gift to relatives or friends

Layouts in 12x12 or lettersize are always a great inspiration for me, and art journaling projects! That's the new thing I want to try, so right now I'm finding inspiration everywhere to get started :)

All kinds of mixed media projects are also very inspiring.
