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!



Join us tomorrow for more fabulous craft inspiration. We want to thank Chrtistie Bryant and Tracey Locher for their gorgeous crafts. Don't forget to leave a comment for this week's contest. We look forward to hearing from you!

Wishing you a beautiful week!

I love doing up cards, and the occasional altered or framed item too! Great giveaway!

I love the once upon a spring time line! It's very cute!

I am a fan of all crafting, but my passions are layouts, mini's and altered. Truth be told, mini's and altered are a tie. : ) I love it all!

I can't wait to see your new collections in real life soon!

Love the layouts especilly Traceys. My muse - well I love stamping and making mini albums to show off photos!

I'm mostly a scrapper (12x12) and a card-maker. I really like altered items but I find that they don't come easily to me and frequently, I have no use for them so I tend to ooh and aah and leave it at that.

Fantastic layouts!!! What great inspiration! I am into Mini albums. My life is full of more "events", rather then day to day excitement

My all-time favorite craft is making cards but I've been admiring altering and layouts so much lately, I just may have to give them a whirl!

Gorgeous projects! I don't scrapbook, but I do make cards, Altered Art pieces and mini books. That is what I love about Graphic 45, you can dissect the papers and use so many different elements. I am loving the new lines.

Those are so fun! I am completely in love with the Curtain call. I wasn't sure about the Once upon a springtime b/c I am not a super girly girl but I have been blown away by the projects I have seen and it is now one of my new Must haves! Love your products!

Oh I wish I could be at CHA. I bet its so much fun. I love this paper...Once Upon a Springtime. You're going to make someone very happy. I love mini's and card making.

my favourite are mini-albums and i'm waitiing for the circus collection for the pictures of my son at his circus classes !

i have absolutely fallen head over heels with mini books. i use your products all the time. only problem; i'm running out of people to give them to!

I am a 12x12 layout girl. mini albums are cute, but I never know what to do with them. But I love the layouts!

Beautiful layouts! My favorite project are layouts but mini's are a close 2nd (just completed my first and I am hooked).

Wow, what an awesome chance to win these goodies! I only scrap layouts and only 12x12 size, I really try to catch up with all the photo's of my boy since he was born in 2006, I hope I can document his life and he will treasure it for life.

Wow. I sure do love that paper. It is so elegant and could be used in so many ways.

I love making mini albums, they are so much fun, and the Graphic45 papers are fabulous for them!!

I am sooo in love with mini albums lately. I love how interactive they are, and they always seem to pop with yumminess.

I love both of them. It is fun to see how many different ways these fun papers can be used.

Ah, let me count...Today it's mini albums, but tomorrow might be altered items. No doubt about it thought, they all go well with G45!!

Oh those layouts are stunning, I can't wait to get my hands on all the new stuff that is coming out. These Graphic 45 papers are always such a must have for me and now there are two more that I know I can't live without!

Once Upon a Springtime is my all time favorite collection of yours! I'd be thrilled to win! Thanks so much for the chance!

I love 12 x 12 layouts!

I love doing altered items, or even albums that look like an altered item.

I am in love with layouts and also do some cardmaking. Although I admire all the great 3-D stuff people do, I don't have an interest in creating any.

Love these new G45 collections...can see them both in my layouts and custom albums, both of which I love to create. Thanks for sharing.

Gorgeous layouts! My current passion is mini albums. I've done mostly cards for the past year, so this is fun and new for me. It was actually seeing some fabulous mini albums by others using the Graphic 45 collections that got me hooked! :)

My fave is definitely LOs, but lately I've been working on minis!!

I am a huge fan of 12x12 layouts and mini albums. Cannot not wait to purchase the new line of papers!

I make more layouts than other paper crafting items. And the majority of the layouts are 12x12.

I'll never get enough of Graphic 45-products. I love to make mini-albums, canvasses and cards with it. It's so clever to design every time new lines!!! I just adore Graphic 45!

Mini albums are fave right now. Any kind of scrapbooking...and cards on occasion. I've also just started my first art journal...different for me. I'm not much of an artist but I'm trying.

I do both cards and 12x12" layout. I rarely make mini albums, though I'm planning to do them more often this year:) Thanks so much for the chance to win. This looks like a bunch of utterly great stuff!

I love altered items- always take and item and try to see it in a new light! 3-D for me!

I love to make cards - especially with G45 papers :)

I have recently discovered card making and graphic 45 paper is perfect for making them!!! I like making cards that are unique and striking and this paper affords me that opportunity. Thank you for such wonderful designs. Can't wait to get my hands on those new designs!!!!

I'm in love with minis! They are such a great opportunity to work with papers and a lot of gorgeous embellishments... Usually I enjoy more the process of creating one than putting photos on it so right now my craft room is just full of "empty" minis that I adore! ;D Cheers, Vron

I love altered projects, cards and mini-albums. I especially love Graphic 45 products! Your new products are just stunning!! Thanks for giving us the chance to win some!

12 x 12 pages are my absolute favorite. I have to get my hands on the Le Cirque collection. How fun would it be to use with all my Cirque du Soleil pages. It's a great collection.

Just came home from CHA and loved your booth. Your team has inspired me to alter more! Really the projects were fantastic.

Wow I love all the graphic's 45 papers and products and the new releases are FABULOUS!!! I love to make altered stuff but enjoy cards and Wall art too !!
