Making a special guest appearance, here is an Olde Curiosity Shoppe card created by Graphic 45 blog writer Kelly Woessner. This card was created by layering Olde Curiosity Shoppe and Kraft Reflections to combine rich symmetry and color. The card base is a piece of recycled cardboard which is both durable and Earth-friendly! The Graphic 45 Metal Button Staples also make a nice 3-D focal point for this fun card. With all of the fabulous patterns and colors of Graphic 45 papers you can have a lot of fun mixing and matching! Cards like these are great for any occasion and they also make a wonderful surprise in the mail for a friend or loved one!

Love the new boxes! It's funny my Mom and I love all things boxes...when we shop together we always end up in the container area discussing the merits of each product, what it can hold, is it practical, pretty, etc...I think when these are available I'm going to have to make her one very pretty AND practical present!

Love those boxes.

G45 is great about "Sneak Peeks", after seeing the peeks of new stuff on the blog the products seem like old friends you've been waiting to pick up when they arrive at local stores.

What amazing projects! Graphic 45 has the most talented, creative and innovative Design Team.

Have to be honest --- there is not one item that Graphic 45 produces that I do not like.

Thanks for all the peeks and giveaways. Congrats to all the winners. Love the boxes-already have ideas starting. Thanks for inspiration with the olde curiosity shoppe layouts.

I spent yesterday making 2 mini-albums with our Great-grand daughter. She is 11 and loves to scrap. She isn't quiet up to G 45 yet but will be soon. Love your paper and love my Great grand daughter.

I cannot wait to start creating a 3-d project with the match boxes. There is no end to the shadow box or themed box you can make with these. Graphic 45 has really outdone themselves this CHA Thanks Graphic 45 for all the wonderful eye candy and the chance to win some goodies.

Beautiful , beautiful work!

Fabulous, fabulous projects and the matchbook boxes look so cool! Can't wait.
