Hello G45ers,

We want to welcome you all to another splendid day here at the Graphic 45 blog! It's Friday and we are so excited to help get you inspired for some weekend crafting! The Graphic 45 office is buzzing with excitement as shops gear up to order Place in Time. Our phones have been ringing off the hook! We are so eager to see the magnificent crafts you'll all create with this gorgeous new collection! We thought it would be fun to share some great behind the scenes photos of Place in Time. Plus we've got gorgeous craft highlights from our Ning site to share with you! That's right, we're taking today to thank all of you magnificent crafters for the fabulous Graphic 45 creations that have been posted to our Ning gallery. Today you'll see stunning crafts from artists just like you! It's going to be a fantastic Friday here at Graphic 45! So lets begin with some of our adventures from the print shop! Here Diane and Aimee check out the beautiful new papers from Place in Time at the printers. We have to make sure those vibrant colors and images look sharp and beautiful! We love to visit the print shop and see the magnificent papers being made!

We see so many gorgeous projects everyday and we just wanted to take a moment to give a warmhearted Graphic 45 shout-out to all of you marvelous crafters. We encourage all of you to share your Graphic 45 projects with us at any time. We'd love to see what you are creating with Graphic 45!

First up is this amazing Curtain Call Card by Cheryl Carrock. This card really captures the elegance of vintage Hollywood, which was the inspiration behind our gorgeous Curtain Call collection! Here is what Cheryl had to say about this fabulous creation!

"I made this card for a male relative who loves to watch films. I thought it was quite appropriate for him. I added an acetate outer layer with tags on and some Tim Holtz film strip and I was pleased with the way it turned out. I just love all Graphic 45 papers" -Cheryl Carrock


Next up is this stunning Happy Haunting mini album by Elizabeth Parsons. This mini is simply delightful. Elizabeth did a great job on layering and distressing the Happy Haunting papers in this mini. She also added some handmade flowers and other beautiful embellishments to create an elegant Halloween treasure! It's pure enchantment!

This is a lovely all-occasions card by Lyn Bernatovich. Lyn used A Ladies Diary for this sweet card. Paper layering and pretty paper distressing give gorgeous texture and depth to this cheerful card. Plus you've got to love those simple and sweet ribbon and flower embellishments! Let this card inspire you to create a happy card for someone you love!

Next we have some incredible Bird Song altered art by Martica Gonzalez. There's a magnificent altered dresser and altered frame that are absolutely beautiful! Check out the fine details on the Bird Song altered dresser! Even the inside of the drawers are lined with our pretty Cherry Blossom paper! Here is what Martica had to say about this remarkable creation!

"This is a a little dresser made of wood that I painted and mod podged Graphic 45 Bird Song paper inside and out. The mirror is a hand mirror made of wood also that I cut of the handle and also painted and (mp) the paper on the edges. I cut an image and made a chipboard frame and used the tiny bottles from tim holtz and filled it with beads, glitter and flowers to give it color. The frame is painted and I mod podged it with same paper collection to match the dresser. I layered sections if you look closely." -Martica Gonzalez

And last but certainly not least we have this fantastic Olde Curiosity Shoppe layout by Sarah-R. This LO has such incredible depth and texture. Once again you can see how perfectly paper distressing works to amplify the vintage look of any Graphic 45 creation. Stunning embellishments cascade across this LO with exquisite beauty. Love is definitely abundant in this super sweet LO!
