Wow! Très belles créations et merci pour le tutoriel.

I love the pinwheels and the rosettes together. Thanks so much for the idea. Needed something for our egg hunt decor.

The pin wheels are so adorable and I agree these are the perfect colours. I also love the simplicity of the tissue box, my Daughter will love to make this for Easter Dx

Pretty little pinwheels...I love the soft happy colors. These would make a sweet gift along with a card.

LOVE those pinwheels. The paper is soooo pretty!

These are so cute. I need to make some for my Easter table. Some of the ladies in our village will meet next week to craft for Easter. I think i will share both ideas with them.

Congratulations to Judi, you lucky, lucky girlie !!
I'm loving these projects, especially the pinwheels, I'm definitely going to be trying those, they will be fabulous for a craft fair xx

Congratulations Judi, you lucky girl! Enjoy! Wonderful projects today. Beautiful colours and lovely things to make xx

2 really great tutorial for kids, that they´re just going to love to make, and they look soo awesome too, really beautiful.
Thanks sooo much for sharing here.

Two fabulous tutorials! Thank you so much!

Congrats Judi. Love the pinwheels project. Love the baskets/

Love those pinwheels and what a crafty idea for the baskets!! Just love coming to this G45 blog for inspiration and wonderful ideas!

Taking a empty tissue box down to my craft nook now to create this cute basket. G45 has the best blog, ideas and product line.

Love the tissue box tutorial! These would make great Easter baskets!
Congratulations to Judi, you lucky girl :)

Great projects, love the pinwheels and I am going to try and make these for the grandkids. Thanks for the tutorial.

I enjoy the cheerful pinwheel table decor, also going to use them with the little repurposed tissue box baskets...might even try these with small individual serving cereal boxes...just have a few here, plenty of time before the peeps need a home! 🐰🐰🐰 🐤🐤🐤!

All I can say is WOW! I absolutely love these layouts. I used to scrapbook and craft all the time but I couldn't "find the time". I thought I was too busy. I have a full time job, 2 kids, I volunteer and being part time self employed, I am busy, but it was my escape for "Me time". Guess what, I'm finding the time. These pictures have inspired me to pull out my stuff, find the time and get creative again. Thank you!!!

G45 is by far the best

By the Sea prize pack is so nice! I love the colors and I'm thinking a dimensional project in this line would be such fun, especially with warmer days around the corner! Thank you for the opportunity to be in the contest!

Sweet Sentiments is the sweetest set of all!!! I adore it and all you have made with it!! Hoping to win this collection.

Congrats to the first 9 lucky winners...hoping to be one myself. Love G45

I absolutely love the Sweet Sentiments collection! Lots of "sweet" ideas are going through my head!

I had been thinking about Easter decor but nothing was feeling right? I saw the pinwheels and it all fell into place! Not only do I love G45 papers, but your designer just solved a problem for me, I feel like I got a two-fer:)

Just discovered you today Graphic45 via Papercapers in Orillia and their website. Talk about inspiration! Your Steampunk Spells, Botanical Tea and By The Sea just about want me to have winter all over again so I can scrap even more! I look forward to becoming one of your groupies.
