Graphic 45 & Core'dinations Blog Hop Day 2!

Hello G45ers,

Welcome to another exciting day of the Graphic 45/Core'dinations blog hop! Thank you all so much for stopping by! Halloween is officially over but the magic is still in the air. Some of us are already planning our costumes for next year! It never hurts to start planning early, right?! As the holiday season approaches there is so much to do. We thought we'd share some fabulous craft ideas, some of which include some beautiful Christmas crafts! All this week we're teaming up with Core'dinations for a fun blog hop. By visiting both our blog and the Core'dinations blog you'll see some astounding crafts that combine the elegance of Graphic 45 with the the beauty and versatility of Core'diantions products. It's an unbeatable mix of inspiration! We are offering two fabulous prizes this week and so is Core'diantions. Just leave a comment on our blog and Facebook page as well as the Core'dinations blog and Facebook page for your chance to win!

Today we've got some amazing creations from Gloria Stengel, Nicole Eccles and Nancy Wethington of our design team. You are sure to fall in love with today's superb crafts. This first project is by Gloria Stengel. It's a classic layout made with An ABC Primer and beautiful Core'dinations Timeless cardstock. It is simple but beautiful as can be. This layout is full of so much heart-warming nostalgia! Here is what Gloria had to say about it.

"This photo is of my mother, taken around 1940. My mother is one of 15 children, therefore it was rare for her to have copies of her school photos. Her family simply could not afford such luxuries with a large family, especially during the Depression." -Gloria Stengel

There's also a video all about the making of the calendar. What fun! 

"Working with Graphic 45 paper collections and Silhouette's new Limited Edition Christmas Advent Calendar was a dream project.  I have the original QuicKutz Silhouette and know only the basics.  But with the addition of the downloadable calendar boxes, the Silhouette cut right through all my double sided Graphic 45 papers with ease.  I didn't even have to change the mat or (yellow) blade! Hope you enjoy the finished project." -Nancy Wethington
