Jim, The Gentleman Crafter

HeadShot_super close

Jim has created a Graphic 45 Communique Hemingway Mini using our Communique paper and Playtimes Past collections along with a number of our Staples products, the metal Flowers and Chipboard buttons to name a few.  Here is what Jim has to say about this fabulous mini: "The Hemingway Album is 8 x 10.5"  The cool binding technique is held in place tightening the nuts and bolts onto the chipboard page units.  To allow for embellishments as well as the page thickness, I have stacked and adhered five, 1-1/4 x 6-1/2 pieces of medium weight chipboard.  I then adhered a binding strip to the stack.  I did this for all four page units."

Awesome..inspiring. Love them all.

wow! You certainly have a very talented group. I am always surprised at new ways to use your papers. And I always have to try and find the items to recreate these inspirations! Love, love, love your site, creativity and chances to win such awesome goodies. Thanks!

Great projects! My favorites are the album and the mailbox.



Amazing. You all are so talented!

I can see that I'll spend my morning blog hopping! What great projects. I'll also make a trip to the ScrapBook Steals site to do some shopping! Thanks again for sharing!

Loving the sneaks!!!! And I love scrapbooksteals.com!! Off to see everyone's creations!!!

I love the idea of giving diverse artists the same materials and giving them free reign to create something wonderful. It always amazes me what inspires others and how they manipulate materials to individualize a project.

Great Projects and amazing talent!

I love your DT! They are the most creative souls on the planet. I'm too early to find Claire and Laura, but was able to drool over Arlene, Jim and Gloria...fabulous work. I'll check back later for the other two.

And, Communique was the very first G45 paper I encountered...it stopped me in my tracks. I'd never seen anything like it...and I've been hooked ever since. I buy up every bit of G45 past designs I can get my hands on , as I love it all so much. Thanks for a great blog hop, and for hooking me up with Scrapbook Steals...one might call you an "enabler". Chuckle, chuckle!

I would love to participate in the blog hop, but one blog has no comment link and another has no option for name only. Booo Hooo.

The inspiration from the new design team is soooo awesome!!! I just love seeing their work!!! And the new papers keep me motivated to create every day!!! Next is Ladies dairy/ Journal and Happy Haunting!! Just love them!!
