Great combos. Graphic 45 and Petaloo I am going to look for the color combinations from both companies as well as coredinations. Great to know.

Almost sensory overload...so beautiful!

Three beautiful projects! I need a couple of thank you gifts and I'm thinking stocking or candy box! Now all I need is the paper!!


I am having so much fun visiting all of the designer teams blogs and seeing their wonderful creations! I am so in love with Graphics 45 - I could wallpaper my apartment with your beautiful papers! It gives me a thrill each time I look at them and the creative possibilities are endless! How I wish I could visit the artists in their studios to watch them create and learn how to do the same! Wishing you a sunshine day!
