"Oh lord - do I ever ADORE this collection.  Perfect combination of vintage and softness.  I altered my photo just a titch and added slight hints of pink in my daughter's cheeks, etc.  I  must have taken at least an hour to decide which papers to use for my layout - I wanted to include them all - seriously, one of my all time fave collections for sure!" -Tara Orr

Next up is these beautiful work of altered art by Nicole Eccles! This piece is so much fun and a wonderful way to add some beauty to an ordinary object! Here is what Nicole had to say about it!

"What was once just a plain black mail organizer and hat rack is now transformed into something I would LOVE to use!  Embellished with the perfect combination of G45’s elegant new A Ladies Diary and Once Upon a Springtime lines. Each line complimenting the other with soft touches of color.  I wanted to keep the organizer looking clean and fresh, yet shabby chic at the same time.  My favorite part that ties the whole thing together is the strip of ladies in their vintage hats, just where a hat can be hung!  Just another example of how Graphic 45 papers can transform ANYTHING into fabulous with just a little time and love." -Nicole Eccles

This is an awesome collection, Christmas gifts are going to be fun to make this year!

So in love with these collections!! My favorite paper is the striped one that looks like there is canes of striped candy. It is so adorable! It all is! I'm rambling!

This collection will be the HIGHLIGHT of my Christmas crafting this year !! I have loved the Nutcracker Suite all of my life and I am so anxious to receive this set....I want the entire collection of papers and stamps too!!!

This new Christmas collection is no disappointment. It is so gorgeous. Thanks so much for such gorgeous products for us to choose from to make our own special projects even more gorgeous.

I have GOT TO HAVE THIS!!! It is absolutely the most precious Christmas Paper I have ever seen!!! The Nutcracker has always been on of my most favorite stories.

Love the Nutcracker Sweet papers - gorgeous!

I love all this new paper! I already have a few things mind for some of the Christmas papers...epecially card designs since I like to send family members homemade cards!

I love this beautiful new Christmas line. It's the kind of thing that will never go out of style.

These are absolutely beautiful!!! I want to play with them NOW!! LOL

LOVE the Nutcracker! A definite MUST HAVE!

You have outdone yourselves with this line! It is amazing! The Nutcracker is my favorite, I take my girls to the ballet every Christmas!

You never fail to present beautiful papers. Love Nutcracker Sweet!

I'm ready to get my hands on this new paper line and start creating. G45 you have done it again. Love it!!

I have fallen in love with the Ladies dairy range of papers.
The nutcracker range is very inspiring for a girls hope chest.
JUst love what you are producing.

This is a great collection. I'm a teacher and I've used Graphic 45 papers to cover my bulletin boards. Last year was the Wizard of Oz and next year will be Steampunk Debutante to go along with our literature unit on steampunk. Looks like I'll have to change out this board in December this year!

This collection is so beautiful that I have to have it even though I have thirty pounds of Christmas paper!

The dance of the "sugarplum fairy"
my fav. Another G45 must haves

What a glorious collection! Love seeing projects to get those creative juices flowing for the holidays.

You're paper designs are amazing, beautiful, and inspiring. There's no other company like you. This particular line of paper is extremely classy.

Your collections just get better and better! What says Christmas more then the story of the Nutcracker!!!! Thanks Graphic 45 for more beautiful collection!!!!

This took my breath away! No matter who comes out with what collection, this will most definitely be my all-time favorite, EVER! The Nutcracker is my favorite ballet and my daughter is a ballerina. There would be so many beautiful layouts I could create with this collection but it would also be one I wouldn't want to use because I love it so much! To win this incredible collection would be wonderful!

I really loved todays stamps and these papers. Just a beautiful collevtion thank you for sharing

The chipboard and sticker elements compliment the Christmas collection so beautifully! I could see these used in many fun projects.

The Nutcracker Sweet is just that very Sweet - I have been buying Graphic 45 for many years and I have had to save one of each page because they are works of art. Never knew there was a chance to win anything. WOW what an opportunity. Thanks and as always looking forward to what wonderful paper will be next. I think I need to get a job at Graphic 45 just to be close to the beauty of the products.
