It’s just gorgeous!" -Arlene

You are going to love all the lavish details and delicate fussy cut elements in this amazing creation! Anne even created a fun video tour for you to enjoy! Bring some sunshine to your day with this dazzling work of art! Here Anne explains how she created this beautiful calendar!

I made this Calendar box for Graphic 45 CHA winter 2014 with the gorgeous Sweet Sentiments paper collection! I had so much fun fussy cutting out the images and most of  he images are pop-up with pop dots ( 3D foam) and covered with Claudine Hellmuth multi-matte. Had so much fun fussy cutting out the images and put them together to a scene. The house box shrine and the small fence  is from Gina Designs. Love it. Also used a Prima metal clock that I cut in 2 to build up the sides.


Video Tour:






 The calendar I found by Google such and printed it out.

I am SO in love with the birds!!! Love the glorious spring colors of this collection.

Just can't wait to get this whole line. Our temps hits low of -14 last night, and seeing this gives hope that Spring is around the corner! Beautiful.

I have a lot of tea cup and tea pot stamps which would be ideal for projects with Botannical Tea paper collection.

Oh my, the more I see, the more I love. Just itching to get these lovelies and get to work :-) Gloria

I love love love the artwork created by Arlene with her dog napa. Absolutely beautiful. Cannot wait to get these papers. It would be nice to win!

WOW!! I love this collection!! What more can I say, Graphic 45, you've done it again!!! Fabulous!

Well, I've used up my supply of drool for the month - that's early.

The Botanical Tea collection is perfection. Usually I like most of a collection, but with this one, there is not a square inch I'm not crazy about. (Sorry about the double negative there.)

Anne's creation is not to be believed! If I could hold it in my hands, it would take me hours of looking to see all the glorious detail packed into that frame. It's look, to me, is the
preeminent expression of what can be done with your papers.

Patiently waiting for this line to hit the stores.

Botanical Tea has me drooling!! And such delicate beauty in the projects today ~ what treasures!
Thanks for the great giveaway ~

Gorgeous set! Thanks so much for an opportunity to win! I'd love to add this collection to my bird/butterfly/floral themed stash!!

Oh. My. Goodness. I can almost smell the springtime in this paper collection!

Love these die cuts and banners!

Beautiful projects to constantly inspire me.The new Tea collection is so soft &pretty.I can't wait to see it for real!

This collection, as most others, gives the impression of delicate feminine romance. Each week gets better and better. Kudos to your designers. I would so love to win this addition.

Lovely, lovely, so lovely!!
But I always expect the best from Graphics 45. I always want 1 to use and 1 to keep!
