Two Unique Ways Be Creative With Olde Curiosity Shoppe!


Hello G45ers,

We want to welcome you all to our happy blog on this fine Thursday! We hope you are enjoying your day so far. There's more joy and inspiration headed your way with today's fantastic crafts! Kristin Wilson and Maiko Miwa of our design team are going to show you two clever ways to craft with our gorgeous collection Olde Curiosity Shoppe! Kristin has created a beautiful banner and Maiko has made an amazing card! Both of these projects are perfect for this festive time of year. Get ready for a real treat because today's Graphic 45 blog is super sweet!

Don't forget that today is the last day to leave us a blog or Facebook comment for your chance to win this week's awesome blog prize! We are giving away this fabulous Tropical Travelogue prize pack to one randomly chosen winner from this week's comments. Be sure to leave us a blog or Facebook comment while there's till time! We will be announcing this week's winner on tomorrow's blog, so stay tuned!


Today's first craft creation is Kristin Wilson's wonderful Olde Curiosity Shoppe banner. This is a perfect project for Halloween time! The "Wicked" sentiment and dazzling designs would look amazing as a piece of Halloween home decor. But since it's also not holiday specific so it would look great year-round! Check out how Kristin combined paper layering and distressing to add some fabulous texture to this great banner. She also added lots of beautiful Graphic 45 Metal Staples to give this banner some added weight and dimension. Both Kristin and Maiko's creations display some fabulous uses for our new Ornate Metal Key Staples. These gorgeous new Staples make any craft a true work of art!

Next up is this vibrant and beautiful card by Maiko Miwa.

The colors in this card are simply gorgeous! Maiko fussy cut some of the characters from Hallowe'en in Wonderland and added decorative chipboards and embellishments to give this card an amazing 3-D look. Happiness radiates from this fabulous card! It just goes to show how much fun you can have when you combine different Graphic 45 paper collections!

Absolutely beautiful projects! Now you've got my mind a buzz so off to the studio I go....

Yumm! just love Kristin's "WICKED" banner - it's so, well, wicked!

The banner on your door is just fabulous! We had a somewhat the same kind on our porch before but it eventually got worn out. It would be amazing to learn how to make these myself.

I adore the wicked door hanging, so much attention to design went into that incredible project!! :)
