Rhea created a beautiful Good ol' Sport card that we just couldn't wait to share! So perfect to see how this collection can be used for so many projects.

"This card was inspired by the lovely imagery and quotation on this paper. Graphic 45 makes it so easy
to create projects because of their innovative designs. I simply chose my sentiment and matted it a few
times in complementary colors. Embellishments were added to create dimension and depth. I may
have over did it a bit in the way of decoration, but sometimes it is fun to get carried away. Notice how
my elements appear in odd numbers, it is a simple trick that will always add interest to your design. Cheers!" - Rhea

Thanks for sharing more of this new vintage sports line.
I love it.

The goodness continues! I am in love with the graphics and the color selection. The stickers and the chipboard pieces can work in so many different project scenarios.

Hip Hip Hooray one up for the men and boys. Having two sons and a grandson I struggle with making male orientated work. This is just what we wanted from G45. Love it to bits.

Wishing everyone a happy 2014.

Warm crafty hugs from Shirl x x

enjoying these new papers & can't wait to get some

Congratulations to the lucky Winners, I am soooooo envious ha ha. These projects are stunning, the papers are so sumptuous in colour, I love them.

WAUW what an awesome card and LO here today made with these gorgeous papers. I´m thrilled to pieces with the look of these, and they´re definitely ending in my stash even my new years resolution were not to buy anymore paper, until I´ve used A LOT of what I already have, so it seems I´ve already broken it the very first day. But what can a girl do, when she see such awesome paper??? She just NEED to get some of it, don´t she? he he he
HAPPY NEW YEAR everyone.

Fabulous new paper. Will go great in the album I'm making for my Dad.

This collection is wonderful!

Oh, oh, oh! You really hit a homerun with this epic collection. I can't wait to get my crafty little fingers on it!

Wow! Love this! Great projects- they showcase the paper well.

How cool love the vintage feel of this paper line

The card and layout is stunning! Thanks for the chance to win.

Gorgeous! I love the orange flowers on the card. And the scrapbook page is fabulous! Congrats to the winners. Jess

OMG G45...you make it too easy for us with such amazing embellishments...how can our projects not turn out fabulous!! Thanx!

I'd love a chance to use these papers before they come out in the stores!

I love g45.

Love the collection - hope I win!

OMG! That is a spectacular wedding page! I love the richness of the colors and the beautiful sayings!

I'm seriously loving this new line! My grandkids would love these//

I have a 3 year old friend, he alwsys say "I need this toy". Well I NEED this line. I just learned love it. You always me just to when I tjink you can't top the last line. Graphic 45 exceeds in topping other last release. Again I NEED NEED this line.

Wow, this collection is just beautiful! I just recently found my mom's memorabilia from when she was a "League of Their Own" ballplayer back in the 30's & 40's. Can't wait to use these vintagey delights to showcase this special time in our family's history.

I so love the colors of this new collection. Thanks from a sports mom that can now have a sports collection I will love to use.

I love the new lines and all of the previous ones. These projects have given me some great ideas for projects I need to complete.

I am concerned by the Sports collection. It contains not one single person of color. At the same time the folks of Western European descent who are depicted in the collection, many other ethnic groups were excluded. Colleges and professional teams refused to accept anyone but White Americans. African and Hispanic baseball players had to play on segregated fields and with very poor equipment. Women were even more segregated until WWII and then only because the people back home missed baseball and were titillated by women in very short dresses. It took decades of sweat, BLOOD, and tears to change this. That suffering existed during the period you chose as a focus for the collection. I'm afraid I will have to pass on this and so recommend to my scrapbooking friends.

I have found it necessary to change skin and hair color for layouts including Irish/Puerto Rican godchildren. I would like to use Graphic 45 for all my layouts, cannot when scrapbooking my friends. If the adult/child's hair is tightly curled, I cannot compensate. I have many photos of adults and children who have played such an important role in my life and I cannot use your beautiful paper to scrapbook them.

Please consider balancing things out. It does not matter if it is not perfectly accurate from an historical perspective. I am using this to capture family pictures, not give a lecture on modes of dress in the 19th and early 20th C.

Thank you, Sharon Marmon-Kaczorowski

as always....right on the money. your colors are just my style... I Love working with your papers.

Love that this is a very versatile kit, even though the overall theme is sports.

Good OL' Sports Collection is awesome. The stickers, the alphabets, the pockets and all embellishments are fantastic. I am not a Graphic 45 fan, but this collection will have me watching your products from now on.
My children & grandchildren are all great sports' participants. Pages using this collection will be outstanding. I can't wait for this collection to be in the stores.

Wow! The designer took a masculine collection and turned it into a beautiful, feminine wedding page! Brilliant!

Just beautiful an so old world. Can wait to be able to purchase.
