Colorful Creations with Graphic 45


Welcome to another day of the Graphic 45 Color Challenge! We have three more amazing projects for you today. Two of them use the same color palette, and it's so much fun to see how a designer can take the same three colors and create something completely unique and beautiful Nichola shares some amazing Mother Goose jewel jars. Then, we have a layout from Donna that is simply stunning. Andrew Roberts creates dazzling journaling blocks.It's going to be a terrific Tuesday!

Have you been inspired to take the G45 Color Challenge? If you want to join in the fun, just choose three of the colors below from our Signature Series Core'dinations Cardstock and use it as the inspiration for your next project. If you do take part, please share on our Facebook page, we love to see your projects!

Let's see what three colors Nichola chose:


We love her jewel jars using the Mother Goose collection. What a fun idea!

"The annual fun fair at my son’s school is fast approaching. This year his class was asked to donate “Jewel Jars” as prizes. These little jars are packed with goodies of all sorts like candy, school supplies, and small toys. Using Core'dinations Lemon Chiffon, Spring Green and Robin’s Egg in combination with Graphic 45’s Mother Goose collection I’ve spruced up some inexpensive plastic jars. I’ve gone easy on the embellishments, making them a quick fun project that will appeal to little prize winners at the school… but you could absolutely run with the concept for bridal showers, or party favours and decorate to your hearts content!" ~Nichola

"One of my favorite papercrafting projects is constructing or altering boxes. I look at pinterest often enjoying the many varied altered projects. This style of project gives me the chance to be simple or detailed and has an eclectic range of ideas. graphic 45 papers are perfect for the altering process. you can use a single collection or merge collections together.

Tip: Creating a shadow box effect allows for a lot of detail in a small part of the project." ~Andrew
