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

As always, wonderful projects!

Wonderful projects!!!

I love the way Graphic 45 collections coordinate not only within the collection but with the solid colors as well and very often, with other collections. No end to the creativity as reflected in today's challenge projects.

Awesome projects. Love the layout by Donna. The G45 Designers are so talented.

Andrew, your layering for the top of the box is so cool. Can't wait to experiment....and be just like you!

love everything Graphic 45 does! oh, to be so talented!

Sweet! Love the box with blocks!

all the projects are gorgeous!

Jewel Jars are such a wonderful way to use beautiful papers in a manner that allows you to see and enjoy them!

So awesome, the huge difference between these two projects just enhances the versatility of G45 products.

Love the jars. I have been collecting jars for a like project. I just finished a jar decorated with Botanical Tea in which to keep my tea.

Such beautiful and fun projects.

Truly inspiring projects!

These projects are stunning !! Loving the combination of colours in this challenge, and the DT have excelled themselves here.

Love all the layering on Donna's layout!

I love all these examples- from the old and the new papers-and these beautiful papers remind me of the truth of quote that "Everything old is new again".
