A Monday Perfect for Cardmaking


Welcome to the blog this fine Monday! We hope our G45ers celebrating the 4th of July had a fabulous weekend. We cannot wait to start another week of inspiration here on the blog. Today is all about cards! We have cards from three of our designers today. Nichola shares some amazing Good ol' Sport cards. Romy Veul will share a sublime Sweet Sentiments card. We will close out the day with a wonderful card from Ginny Nemchak that reminds us to never stop dreaming! Do you love cardmaking? Today's blog is for you!

It's Monday - which means, a new giveaway! Woo hoo! With all the red, white, and blue and beach pictures we see online, what a better time for a By the Sea giveaway? Just comment here on the blog or on our Facebook page to be entered to win. We will announce the winner here on the blog on Friday. Comment away!


Nichola shares how to get the creative juices flowing in her description below, and we just love these Good ol' Sport cards!

"Lately, when my creative juices have felt a little low, I’ve been making cards. I grab a piece of 12” x 12” Core'dinations Cardstock chop it into three pieces of varying sizes and set to work. For this sporty set I used Antique Moss as my base and then used coordinating papers from Graphic 45’s Good Ol’ Sport to embellish. Inside, I’ve attached a piece of plain bond paper for writing, and added restrained embellishments. In no time at all I’ve got some useful cards and my paper crafting mojo is back!"~Nichola

Romy reminds us that everyone loves to be loved! We love this gorgeous card with a very Sweet Sentiment.

"Every day is a good day to show someone your love for him or her. Therefore, I made this card with the gorgeous Sweet Sentiments collection. I decided to use one of the images from the “Be My Valentine” paper as the central element on my card. I framed it with a resin frame and positioned it in the middle of my card, surrounded by a few lovely butterflies and hearts, that were cut out from the papers as well. " ~ Romy
