Hello Lovely G45ers!

Perhaps you've still got some last minute gifts to pick up or some crafts to create. Today we're bringing you some awesome holiday inspiration from Jane Tregenza and Gloria Stengel of our design team.

First up are these adorable and stunning tags by Jane Tregenza. Tags are so much fun to make.

The Christmas Emporium papers are perfect for mixing and matching in any creation! Also you can see some gorgeous uses of our Metal Flower Staples! Get ready to fall in love with these inspiring holiday gems!

"I was inspired by all the lovely tags on Graphic 45’s facebook page as part of the Holiday Gift Card Challenge. I decided to make 4 tags but join them together to make a mini book. All it needs is a photo. I used lots of the lovely Christmas papers from Graphic 45 and a metal flower. Chipboard tags and holly flourish from Imaginarium Designs. I love eclectic bits and pieces and this project gave me the perfect chance to use lots." -Jane Tregenza






Next we have these marvelous holiday cards by Gloria Stengel. Gloria has such an elegant and classic style and you're going to love what she's done with these cards! They are shining examples of the diverse ways you can create a festive holiday card with a few simple tools. Obviously having lots of gorgeous Graphic 45 paper is a must. Just add some pretty ribbon or other fun embellishments and you've got a beautiful handmade-card! Let Gloria's marvelous talent help inspire your last-minute holiday crafting!
