Sweet Sentiments from Graphic 45

Arlene always makes gorgeous projects, and these Sweet Sentiments Easter decoration and party favors are no exception! Will you try this great idea?

“Easter is a fun time for family and friends to come together and celebrate. These cute little rosette flowers double-up as table decor and a treat for your guests to take home after the festivities have ended. They are super easy to create and are a perfect project to work on with your kids this Easter. Hope you give some of these a try!” ~Arlene Cuevas

"The new Artist Trading Tags by Graphic 45 are so precious! They are perfect for making beautiful little artist trading cards that you can store on a binder ring. I had the fun task of making an Easter-themed ATC using Sweet Sentiments. The egg image was the most sentimental image for me, as ever since I was little, Easter eggs always made an appearance! I chose purple as a background color and little pink roses to complement the egg image in the middle. And G45’s new whitewashed metal brads are the perfect size and compliment to your ATCs!" - Maria

The ATC is quite beautiful!! Love how versatile your collections are!! Will be watching the Snapguide tutorial later today!! Thanks for sharing these gorgeous creations with me!! Have a wonderful day!

Botanical Garden is the PERFECT line of papers for spring. Beautiful work

My goodness!!! Everyday gets better!!!

Love today's projects! They are so beautiful and spring-like! Thanks for bringing them to us, Graphic 45 folks!

Love all the great inspiration. I guess I should be starting my Spring cleaning too! The storage box idea is great!

Cute treats, gorgeous atc creation (saw 1st to arrive in UK yesterday, yay!) - it's rather more than an atc, I am sure all would agree?
The storage by Nicola is such a fun & functional idea. Mine are all in pizza boxes (how we have them sent Here). I am however going through a bit of upcycling faze so may have to do something similar. Sadly, I won't need as many as Nicola, Lol!! Tfs today :)

Absolutely beautiful creations! LOVE it!

Todays projects are so beautiful! Thanks for sharing!!

Beautiful Easter projects! The Easter florettes would be a great hit at my daughter's school.

Fabulous projects! I love the idea for storing scrapbook papers!

Fun Easter projects, and a great paper organizing suggestion, thanks!

My family will be delighted on Easter morning when I pass out flowers with candy. Thanks for the simply brilliant idea Arlene.

Really fun projects! I haven't seen the ATC tags in my local crafty store yet...will have to keep an eye out for them!

Off to see the scrapbook storage idea...

I think I am a broken record, but I so appreciate the Graphic 45 blog and all of the incredible inspiration and talent presented to us each day!!! You are a highlight of my day every week!

Beautiful and fantastic projects!

That beautiful organizing tip from Arlene is just what I needed!

Spring is definitely here! These projects are just blooming with inspiration!

Love the candy toppers. Candy is sweet any time - add these beautiful embellishments and it is even sweeter.

Both of these projects are just gorgeous! Love all the colours.

Love the ATC and the flowers .Thank you!

Nice! Love the storage ideas!

Lovely projects.

Love the ATC!

The ATC is gorgeous. Her fussy cutting really is superb.

I would love to have more info about the display stand that Maria used for her lovely ATC.

What a great storage idea. Who doesn't need more cheap storage?!?

Love how versatile Sweet Sentiments is! Wonderful projects! Thank You.

I love the idea of using washi tape around the edges. thanks

Please add a way to pin pics to pinterest! Thanks

Fabulous projects. I use decorated shipping boxes to store my papers. I make a diagonal cut ...like the magazine holders, then I decorate with paper.

Great projects! Love Nichola's Snap Guide.

Lovely projects. I covered cardboard magazine holders on the ends with Graphic 45 papers and I keep my collection is those. I don't cover the entire holder because I don't want to use the lovely papers and once they are back on the book shelf the sides don't show.

Oh so sweet, sweet, sweet...

Beautiful projects. Thanks for sharing, Michelle t

I've been asked to make take away treats fro a birthday party in May. Thank for the inspiration!!!

Fabulous projects! Thank you for the inspiration.

I love making rosettes and Arlene's addition of the die cut on the front is fantastic. Love the ATC card, so lovely.

Love the projects.

I enjoy seeing treat packaging. Nice.

Delightful Easter ideas made lovely with Graphic45 papers.
