Karen beautifully uses the sketch to create a Botanical Tea layout that looks completely different than Maiko's layout. See how this collection can be used in such different ways.

"I really enjoy working with sketches. I normally use them as basic starting point for my layout, then, flip, turn or change the sketch just a little to make it my own. I didn’t really alter Maiko’s sketch at all, it was beautiful as it was, all I did was make my bottom photo slightly larger than the sketch. I am so happy with how this layout turned out. It was one of those rare times when everything just comes together perfectly. But, Botanical tea makes creating beautiful layouts so easy, I truly can’t get enough of this paper collection; I have already created at least 8 projects from it, and still have tonnes of other ideas. If I was ever to design a paper collection, just for me, it would be exactly like this one." ~Karen

Romy uses a different color scheme completely for her sketch layout and really creates a stunner. We love the cascading postage stamps. Amazing!

"Maiko’s beautiful sketch inspired me to create a masculine lay-out about my boyfriend with a mix of two collections: Typography and Good Ol’ Sport. Instead of two photos I used only one photo and I changed the second photo in the sketch into a few fussy cut postage stamps. " ~Romy

Such gorgeous layouts!

Love the Mother Goose collection. Love all your products, but this is especially sweet.

Love how each layout comes out so different with the same inspiration. Amazing job once again. Thanks for sharing.

All of the layouts are great. And, since the papers and embellishments help to make these terrific layouts, I'd LOVE to win the giveaway:) G45 makes the best collections!

Fabulous layouts! I'd love to win the Mother Goose!

I would love to win ! Happy National Scrapbook Day!!!

I love all the layouts and your beautiful papers.

Great combination of Good 'Ol Sport and Typography.

Fingers crossed for the Mother Goose prize pack... My niece has a new baby and want's colors with pizazz rather than soft pastels. This is perfect!

Wow- some amazing work here :)

Thanks for the fun giveaway. The flowers are just amazing.
