We love An ABC Primer. The beautiful colors and vintage schoolhouse images are filled with so much wonder! There are so many ways to use this fabulous collection to create something unforgettable!

I must come back later and spend some additional time looking at that mini! The pencil spine is really inspired! And the frames are great, too! Thanks for sharing

What a great idea for the ABC mini! Cute wall hangings!

Love the pencil idea, thanks G45.

Denise, what a wonderful wonderful project! You rocked this girl! I'm totally in love with the mini!

Alberto, You are amazing! Love the wall hangings and can't wait to make these for my nephew Finny! Great use of the paper! They are stunning!

Both incredible! Incredible!

What a greate project. Have a nice day :)

These are both great projects and great ideas. I have been trying to figure out a little gift for some great nephews and nieces who are all beginning school this year and I think these wonderful frames fit the bill. The little album would be great for the moms. So glad I stopped by today! I've been wanting an excuse to buy this paper!!!

That is one precious mini album! Each page is so unique and beautiful! The wall hangings are so fun. I could see them in a children's library. They would be such an attractive way to identify fiction books organized by author's last name (initial).

I love both these projects.. so very creative and inspiring!

Oh my, absolutely love these projects! The mini album is so creative, love the pencils. And the alphabet hanging would look great in my new godsons room for sure!

I continue to be amazed at all of the different "looks" that can come from An ABC Primer. It's one of my favorites.

Absolutely darling!

The album is amazing with the pencils as the book spine. And the wall hanging initials would be perfect in a youngster's room.

Clever journal! Beautiful frames.

Wow!! These are awesome!!

I just love the book. I adore the pencils in the spine!!! What a great idea and the chalk board on the inside with the piece of chalk. I just love it!!!!
The hangings are adorable. That little boy looks just like the little boys in school that would just sit and day dream, and have frogs in their pockets for later!!!! Just love it all!!!!

Love the binding on the mini...could she do a tutorial?

Love the mini book. How creative is that. The hangings are so kewl.

Coucou, c'est super joli et j'adore cette collection abc, bises

The book binding is so creative. Is the a how to post on it? My office is decortated with ABC Primer.

Wonderful mini book and great to see more of Alberto's work too.

Two more Awesome projects, beautiful! I love the binding with pencils, what a clever idea.

Hooray for the DT. What a fantastic mini. What a gift that would make for any teacher working or retiring. So Cool! Fantastic Job on both projects by the DT. Thanks

OMGosh brilliant work! Love the pencil spine, so original!

What fun! The pencil-bound mini is great. Perfect for future photos of my g'kids. And the framed art is very creative. I can see decorating the g'kid's bedroom with it.

WOW! Fantastic creations! Loving the G45 papers -- it is so hard to decide what my favorite is, but loving it. Yummy yummy yummy...thanks for sharing.
