Stunning Tropical Travelogue Layouts and Sketch!

Hello Fabulous G45ers!

Happy Tuesday and welcome to another inspiring day here at Graphic 45! We hope your new year is off the a great start! We've got some gorgeous crafts to share with you today from our very talented design team members Hilde Janbroers and Yuka Hino. Today is all about layouts that feature our vibrant new collection Tropical Travelogue! We are having so much fun with this amazing new paper collection. It is full of lavish colors and lush tropical island imagery. One look at today's layouts and you'll understand why Tropical Travelogue is a must-have for any avid crafter! Plus it's a great way to cheer up any winter blues you might be having. If the weather is cold and the skies are grey, just grab some colorful paper and let your imagination take flight! Winter is a great time of year to really dig in to your crafty nature! Lets get started with this gorgeous layout by Hilde Janbroers! This LO is simply astonishing with its bright colors, sweet embellishments, adorable photo, and terrific use of paper layering. It looks as though this LO could spring to life! Here are some great tips from Hilde about how she created this fun LO!  
"I used 2 sheets from the small paperpad to layer underneath the picture. Then after adding the flowers I added the chipboards and metal tag. Also I cut out some images and placed them around the photo. It's a real great collection to use with girly pics!!" -Hilde Janbroers

Next we have this brilliant Tropical Travelogue LO by Yuka Hino. Yuka has such a playful and beautiful sense of style in all of her crafts. Here you can see her wonderful eye for combining color and form to create something that is infinitely alluring! Yuka did an amazing job at giving the botanical images in this LO a real 3-D quality. All you need to do is to delicately cut out an image and then carefully adhere it to your LO using some nice 3-D foam squares by Scrapbook Adhesives! It works like a charm! Plus, Yuka always has the most adorable photos in her LO's! Not only is this LO simply gorgeous, but Yuka has also created a sketch so that you can create one of your very own! How grand!
