Graphic 45 Ning:


Here we have a super sweet idea for Graphic 45 jewelry! Check out these fabulous Magic of Oz domino necklaces by Dawn Soto. This is such a clever idea and it looks so amazing! This would be perfect with any Graphic 45 collection! Just imagine what great gifts these would make for the holidays! Bravo, Dawn!

"I have made a ton of these most of them with G45 papers. Great gifts for family and friends" -Dawn Soto


Here we have an absolutely darling Bird Song tag by Pia.You can see how beautifully Pia layered the Bird Song papers and did some delicate fussy cutting to give this tag exquisite detail. This tag is so lovely and would make a wonderful gift or decoration. We love it!


Here is an amazingly glamorous layout featuring A Ladies' Diary by Rebecca Morris. The soft pastel colors and diverse patterns in this LO are just incredible! By layering the papers from A Ladies' Diary and adding amazing trim and flower embellishments, Rebecca created a true vintage treasure. We also love that gorgeous antique photo! This LO is a real gem!


Here we have another marvelous Bird Song creation. This is a totally inspiring Bird Song layout by Karen Zueger. The colors in this LO are just amazing! This is a great example of how paper layering can create such amazing dimension in a layout! Karen also used new Graphic 45 Staples like the Ornate Metal Keys and Ornate Metal Label Holders to give this LO even more charm and beauty. Wow!

And last but certainly not least is this fabulous Tropical Travelogue card by Barbara Johmson.This is so beautiful! You can see how many different Tropical Travelogue papers that Barbara used in this amazing card. They all blend so well together! She also used Tropical Travelogue Chipboard Die-Cuts and Stickers to add even more allure to this gorgeous card! It's like stepping into an island dream! So pretty!


Before we go we wanted to let you all know about a special new tutorial series that will begin on our blog on Monday, November 26. It's something for which we've been getting tons of requests. Beginning on Monday we will be having a super fun tutorial series that will show you step-by-step how to create a calendar for 2013 using Place in Time and our 12x12 Easel Albums! Every member of our design team is contributing to this fantastic tutorial series. Each day we will bring you a new page of the calendar in a fun and informative tutorial. The series will show you how to create the calendar cover and all 12 months of the year using Place in Time with our 12x12 Easel Album. This is going to be a huge event so be sure to stop by on Monday to see the first part of the tutorial which will be the calendar cover page. We will also be giving away an amazing Place in Time prize pack next week on our blog to celebrate this amazing event! We can't wait to share this with you all! Please come back and see us!
