Are you super inspired, G45ers? Well we're going to bring even more fun to your day by sharing two gorgeous layouts by Denise Johnson and Arlene Cuevas! We begin with this amazing layout by Denise that features a fantastic video tutorial. Denise combined our bright and beautiful Bohemian Bazaar collection with Mother Goose and lots of pretty Graphic 45 Staples! This is the perfect creation for fashionable Autumn home decor! Follow along with Denise's video tutorial to learn some fun and easy ways to distress your Graphic 45 papers for the perfect vintage-inspired look. Take it away, Denise!

"A layout perfect for Fall! A beautifully distressed canvas showcases a variety of vintagey finds, warm textures and a bounty of flowers. This layout also features an interchangeable photo option. A metal border and G45 metal clothespin hold your photo in place so you can change the photo out as your mood sees fit! I created a video to walk through the process of creating the distressed background paper and how to layer everything together." -Denise

Next up is this marvelous layout that Arlene created with our Typography collection. This is another great idea for Fall-inspired crafts. The rich colors and classic designs of Typography offer endless possibilities for creativity. Arlene added some beautiful paper layers, fun embellishments and just the right amount of paper distressing to give this LO a timeless look. You can really feel the love in this wonderful work of art. Here is what Arlene had to say about it.

“A little bit of love, distress and Graphic 45’s Typography goes a long way! I created this page with the photo as my inspiration. Happiness & smiles… don’t forget to “Live, Laugh, Love”! -Arlene
