Now it's time to share some amazing new crafts from our Design Team! Here is a stunning Botanical Tea chipboard teapot that Maria created! This is such a perfect idea for this beautiful new collection! This sweet teapot would make a great gift and it's so much fun to create! You can really let your imagination take flight with all the dazzling designs and colors from Botanical Tea! Get inspired by Maria's amazing creation! Here is what she had to say about it.

"Botanical Tea is such a pretty paper line, and it’s perfect for decorating fun pieces like this chipboard teapot from Want 2 Scrap. I covered both sides with Botanical Tea, then added some fussy cut flowers and a touch of sparkle! Right now, this project is on the road, but when it comes back home I can’t wait to give it to my mom. She has always loved feminine dishes and tea sets, so it makes for a great anytime gift!" -Maria

Next up is this incredibly stylish Couture dress form by Rhea. This is the perfect project for this amazing collection that is full of elegant fashion! You can see some great uses for the Couture cardstock Flowers. The new Graphic 45 Shabby Chic Staples are on full display in this lovely work of art! This would make a wonderful gift or pretty piece of home decor! Here is what Rhea had to say about this beautiful creation.

"I just love the delightful patterns in this paper line.  I was especially attracted to the black lacey look of the “chic” paper so I knew I wanted to showcase it in a project.  This small stand up mannequin was the perfect subject for this endeavor. The dark colors I chose to use made a nice backdrop for the new shabby chic finishes of the Graphic 45 metal staples, which are simply delightful.  I can see a lot of fun with these in my future for sure." -Rhea

wow ... It is so gorgeous.

Oh my goodness! Birds, butterflies, hummingbirds and teapots...it is too much!!! <3

These samples are awesome and very inspiring. I also want to say that the 6x6 pads are as awesome as someone re-inventing bread and butter. I work in smaller project venues and these smaller co-ordinating prints work perfectly.

The Botanical Tea collection is so gorgeous... very INSPIRING! Thanks G45!

This is beautiful, it would make an amazing gift! I love this line.

Oh My! this is not just a want, this is a need! I absolutely need this collection ~ Botanical Tea, it's exquisite!

May I add that I also adore the Couture mannequin, that is such a beautiful piece of artwork, truly inspiring.
