Typography Prize Contest Graphic 45

Typography is just perfect for altered art. As you can see in this magnificent altered picture frame that Arlene created, the possibilities for creative inspiration are endless! This gorgeous project is so wonderful for home or office decor. It is also the perfect idea for a heartfelt handmade gift! Having this fabulous frame on your desk on a Monday morning would be such a positive motivator. Here Arlene gives some great tips for how she created this gorgeous work of art. Get inspired to create your own Typography treasure for yourself or someone you love! Take it away, Arlene! 

“I wanted to create something inspirational that I could place on my desk - something to remind me, during those stressful work days, to breath and be my best always! The motivational sentiments in the Typography paper collection were perfect for my altered frame! I found this distressed frame on clearance at my local craft store. It’s perfect because it has a worn look already -- no further distress needed! I adhered the “drawer” piece of the small Matchbook Box to the center of the frame to create a “shelf” to place more motivational sayings and knick-knacks. The thought behind the removable spools was for me to “rate” my stress level during my work day --> Green = Doing great & moving forward, Yellow = Need to stop to take some deep breaths, Red = Step away, regroup. The spool that best represents my stress-level at the moment, goes up on the “shelf” as a reminder of how I’m doing. I work a pretty stressful job, so this helps keep me in check! I also LOVE the quote “It’s a good day to have a good day!” That certainly is a driver to have a GREAT day!” -Arlene

My favorite LSS is Memory Lane Scrapbooking in Missoula, Montana. The store is 2 1/2 hours from my home so I have to stock up when I go and they carry all of the G45 papers. Thank you for the opportunity to win the Typography line.

Treasured Memories in Edmonton, AB, Canada carries G45, for which I'm grateful, as the big-box craft store's selection of scrapbooking supplies is pretty pedestrian. You can check out TM's blog at http://www.treasuredmemories.typepad.com/.
Thanks for the opportunity to give them a shout-out.

Nice projects today...new collection is lovely. I get my G45 papers at Peddler's Pack in Beaverton, OR. Wonderful store for all sorts of paper crafting supplies.

this is an amazing, thanks for the inspriation

So thankful to have Family Memories in Charlotte,NC that carry Graphic 45. Also visit Greensboro,NC and go to Betty's Stamping and Scrapbooking.

Congrats to the winner ! Another day of inspiration... Typography is cute and colorful !

I'm such a huge fan of Typography! These projects showcase it beautifully.

Beautiful projects. I love mini-books, and the tag book is so cute!

Archiver's is my favorite local scrapbook store that carries Graphic 45's papers!

Carla from Utah

Love the paper. Our scrapbook store closed so Michaels is what I go to or on line shopping.

My favorite store is scrapbook generations located in Springfield missouri'

Typography is turning in to another favorite versatile collection. Lovely projects.
Going to look and see if our local store has a website or Facebook page.

Love today's projects especially Arlene's frame.

I love this Typography collection. Our local Graphic 45 go to store is Doodlebugs at 138 W. Washington Street, Sequim, Washington 98382 They have a very active Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/doodlebugswa They do a great job.

I usually do my shopping on line. All the stores have sadly closed around me.

Wow! I'm so in love with these projects! My fave scrapbook store is called Scrapdoodles in Fredericksburg, VA - www.scrapdoodlesblog.blogspot.com. Thanks for the inspiration!

My favorite LSS is Urban Scrapbook in Edmonton, Alberta Canada. Thanks for the chance to win!

I don't have a local family owned scrapbook store near me so I have to shop at the Archiver's in Novi, Michigan.

I get all my G45 goodies from my local Archivers. They carry a good variety of G45 items most of the time.

My LSS is Bargain Bill's in Rice Lake, WI. I'm constantly going in to check for new releases of G45 papers. They don't always have the coordinating embellishments (or maybe are sold out before I get there) so to win this Typography prize would be epic!

I do a lot of my shopping at Scrapbooking warehouse this is address that I have bookmarked in my favorites it brings you right to Graphic 45 choices :)
http://store.scrapbooking-warehouse.com/graphic45.html they always have great prices

I buy my Graphic 45 at Archivers in Woodbury, MN. http://www.archiversonline.com/stores/07

Tracie at Papercraft Clubhouse stocks a really nice supply of Graphic 45 items.
Even though it's a 50 min. drive for me, I don't mind. They're located at 20 Westbrook Place in Westbrook,CT.

Thanks for such inspiring creations G45! My favourite scrapbooking shop is Alice in Paperland, located in Sydney, Australia. There is great excitement when the box arrives from the USA with all the new G45 collections! www.aliceinpaperland.com.au

I love this store, it's the only scrapbook store left now in a three county area. I order my Graphic 45 through them though they are small and sometimes stuff gets backordered for a looooong time.

I love the Typography frame.I would like to create something similar for myself. I would really love to also win some product.The store where I purchase my Graphic 45 stuff is called Scrapbook Centrale in Montreal ,Qc. Canada at....www.scrapbookcentrale.ca

I love every last one of these projects. My favorite store closed years ago - Scrapbook Dreams - but my new local store is Cranberry Hill Mercantile. What? Do they carry paper? Yep! And they carry the lovely Graphic 45 papers!

Great projects. Thanks for sharing. Thanks for another chance to win. I love this paper line and haven't had any.

My Favourite is Tuesday Morning in Huntsville, Alabama. Thanks for the chance!

We have no local scrapbook store in or near my city. I have to shop on-line for my G45 products. It's the waiting for it to arrive that's so annoying. I work exclusively with G45 products because I'm never disappointed with the high quality of their product. The only way I see new paper lines is on this blog and I thank you for that. I love all the inspiration and the awesome designers/artists that create for you. You brighten all my days!

Another collection I love-bookmarking all this inspiration for the future.thank you!

Love the creative projects for the Typography line, thank you. My favorite store is STAMP ATTIC located in Anchorage, Alaska. Betty Hedstrand, the owner, is so amazing. She will order what you need and will teach you any new technique you want to learn. She carries Graphic 45 and incorporates every new line into her classes. Her email address is stampatticalaksa.com

My favourite store is online - http://www.ali-craft.co.uk - they stock all my delish Graphic 45 goodies.
