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!

I love mini albums! I would love to win this collection, since I've seen it, I can't stop imaging of beautiful proyects. Thank you for the chance of winning your goodies, xox

oh my GOODNESS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
i am always so inspired by this blog!!!!!
thank you sooooo very much

I love altering paint cans and mirrors.

My favorite pastime is scrapbooking mini albums, from start to finish, I try to create the most unique book I can invision and create, but to do that, I have to use the most unique papers and accessories. With that in mind, I can only choose Graphic 45, as they are the most UNIQUE company out there and have never produced a line I didn't love. This year I would have to say though that my favourite would have to be their Once Upon a Springtime collection as Spring is my most favourite season and the papers scream at me that they want to be used in one of my many muriad of projects.

Fabulous layouts!!! I'm partial to scrapbook layouts but I'm trying my hand at card making. Thanks for the chance!

Love these two new lines.
I enjoy making altered items the most. It lets me be me.

I love to make cards tailored to the person receiving them. I try to include their favorite colors or their hobbies. Can't wait to see whats coming next!

Right now I tend to favor Cards, my kids are grown, not much to scrapbook anymore, but I do like to make projects for gifts and friends, so anything altered are favorites too. Your Papers and supplies are so great for any project, quite adaptive and so beautiful! Keep them coming!!

I love to make cards but I like Layouts and ATCs too!
How I'm a apprentice,all tecniques and projects I appreciete!
I'm too love the blog G45!!!
PS>Excuse me my English...so bad!

I had gotten away from layouts, but now they are my favorite! Looking forward to playing with your new lines!

I spend most of my crafting time making cards. I am hoping to branch out to make some altered projects, from all the inspiration I get from G45, and their designers. I can't wait to get my hands on all the new line products.

Have always thought hmmmm I am just a scrapper! But now with all the creations I am seeing in Altered Art I really want to try that. And I am so in love with all the mini albums....Wanna try it all and wow, what great products are out now.....Thank you for the awsome chance to win! Fingers, eyes and toes are all crossed!

I posted your link on my FB page!!! I love your products! What great inspiration you are!

I am quite frankly in love with making layouts...and I keep saying I am going to work on several mini albums I have mapped out in my head but never get to it because my layouts tickle my fancy. ;)
I am stoked to see a chance to win this fab giveaway, crossing my fingers and toes its me who wins!!! That would be a great thing!

It is so hard to choose just one because I love doing so many craft things but if I have to choose I would say mixed media art journaling. Thank you so much for such an inspirational blog.

Such a cool line, perfect for a lot of special moments!

i love layouts. but i do want to make a mini album this year, just to see what all the fuss is about!! :-}

Love the once upon a springtime collection the colors are simply beautiful! love the peach color! it's so soft and romantic...

Please pick me lol!

Mini albums are definitely my muse!! I have made them for everything from childbirth to the first year of life to dating to wedding guest books to girlfriends to wine club events to"old men rule" and I'm still making them!! I adore Graphic 45 to use on my mini albums!

I love that first layout- great colors! I usually make cards but my next project is a 12 by 12 recipe album- I may be converted to scrapbooking soon!

After all that I have experimented with I can say my fave is paper mache boxes. I have heard and seen via internet Studio 45's beautiful artwork. Just last week I found a craft shop that sold a very small collection. When we finally met, it was love at first sight. She was just a beautiful in person. It would be an honor and previlege to receive your line into my collection and create something fantastico for Valentine's Day. TFS

These layouts are all fabulous. Such talented designers you have in your group.

It's hard to choos the one thing I like the most, I find the variety the most inspiring. But if Id have to choos one thing, it Think that would have to be cards. Still I adore making layouts and alter stuff too.

I love the layouts. The spark of color on Christie's was fantastic and very welcome on a day filled with ice storms and wind.

Oh...I can't decide! I go through phases...I love paper crafting of all kinds! Right now I am in a cards and scrapbooking phase.

I can't wait to get my hands on the Le Cirque line. I have an old printers drawer I want to alter and that paper is perfect for a gift for my husband who collects Circus memorabilia.

Thanks for another awesome give-a-way!

What a fabulous pages shown here!
And for the answers:
I am a 12*12 scapper , but I love mini albums and altered items too.Less cardmaker, but I do some. I think your paper are just great for minis and altered projects, I love die cuts that are small for 12*12,but great on my minis..

I love 12 x 12 layouts but those little albums keep bringing me back- especially for gifts! Graphic 45 rocks!!

Me encanta la colección curtain call, incluidos los sellos (fantasticos los de moulin rouge)! Es perfecta para alterados que nos remontan al cine mudo y a los locos años 20!

Gorgeous layouts! I have to say, that for every line G45 comes up with, the more I ADORE it!

I LOVE the Curtain Call collection - bought it the minute I saw it, and have already made valentine cards and am working on a mini-album. Your line is my absolute favorite, so it frustrates me that I can't find the papers I want at my local stores.... I love to make mini-albums and altered art. Thanks for posting the exampes!

I love making paperbag albums. They are just so fun and I love to fill them with great quotes and lots of fun vintage artwork. The most unusual one I made was of Salvador Dali. I found some great quotes from him to use and of course his fabulous artwork!!!

I really love doing altered-mixed media pieces & your paper collections are always a great inspiration!

I fell in love with your products after seeing them for the 1st time on scrapbook.com. It makes me so sad I can't get them here at any stores in South Dakota. I would love this give away its inspired :)

I am mostly a layout girl although I do like to dabble in altered projects too.


I love all projects. Your papers are so cool to do SOOOOOO many things with. I would have to say, that making all the "Other" projects always excite me to see what can be made of BEAUTIFUL paper and supplies. Keep up the great work

I have to say my kind of creating is Victorian. I don't care if it a card, layout, book or altered item as long as there is Victorian in it.. Just seems to pop for me

aka TA

Right now I love making tags, ATC's, Altered art items, and greeting cards. Love to learn new techniques and ideas.
