Good Morning, G45ers! We have a feeling you are going to be very excited about our last day of Sneak Peeks! One of our biggest customer requests is to re-release older collections.

Baby 2 Bride and Times Nouveau were our very first collections and kicked off this grand adventure of Graphic 45. When you buy these collector's editions, you will get in one handy pack a paper pad, and NEW cardstock stickers and chipboard tags that were not included in the first inception of these two collections. They have also been digitally enhanced to give you even more beautiful papers then when they were first released. Aren't you so excited? We certainly are! Also, today we will show you Sneak Peeks of our new Staples. You are going to love these new fun items. Stick around to the end for a stunning Botanical Tea creation by Donna Espiritu!

The Baby 2 Bride Deluxe Collector's Edition

When you purchase this collection, you will receive this paper pad pack that includes the chipboard and stickers!


Enjoy a wonderful tutorial from Diane's workshop on how to make an upcycled dresser using Baby 2 Bride. What an adorable piece!



This small set of drawers was painted a complimentary pink for the new classic release of Baby to Bride. First the knobs were carefully removed with pliers that had been wrapped with several layers of paper towel so as not to scratch or break the them.



Little pieces like this should have all surfaces covered. It's easy to forget the back sometimes but it really finishes it nicely when done. The back is covered with a blue diamond paper called 'From this Moment'.






The drawer cabinet is going to be covered with 'Sentimental Baby' in one piece that wraps around the sides. This pattern is made from several pieces of scrap paper and taped together. Then the pattern is carefully transferred to the paper. Take your time when cutting it out and adhering so you get it perfectly in place.






The drawer fronts are then adhered with the same paper and the knobs replaced.


The pink gingham paper which is on the reverse side of 'Sentimental Baby' is used on the top of the cabinet and a blue border from 'Birdy Baby Blues' is layered on top of it.

That same blue border is continued on the top and bottom of the cabinet. The drawers are put in place and the finished drawers are ready for the baby or a bride!

Now, to wrap up this magnificent day, we have an incredible altered frame by Donna using Botanical Tea. This is so gorgeous!

"I altered a frame I bought in a thrift store, like a dollar store in the USA. Originally the color is gold with black stains. I primed the frame with white gesso, about 3 layers (drying after each layer first before painting new gesso). Then I brushed the frame with Mod Podge (matte) before adhering the fuzzy cut flowers. I glued the flower pieces with a glue gun and then brushed several layers of Mod Podge again. I also used Platinum stickles for a little bit of sparkle. I dabbed Mod Podge dimensional magic to the butterflies and monogram." ~Donna




Supply List:

Botanical tea 12x12 papers (Botanical tea, Flora, Sweet Chamomile, Just because)
Botanical tea 8x8 papers (Just because, Fauna)

Wow! Love the beautiful projects. So excited about the chance to own Baby 2 Bride and Times Nouveau. I wasn't scrapbooking when they came out.

Love bringing back the old papers!

Absolutely love these new "old" collections. Can't wait to get them.

O. My. LOVE both of these! :) I wasn't a part of this world "in the beginning," but I do love 'em now. YUM!

You read my mind! I've been helping a friend organize her craft room and have been envious of her collection of every G45 line, including Times Noveau and Baby to Bride. Would love to win them!

Love the paper collections! So pretty!

Oh, I have so few pieces of those past collections left and it's fabulous to have them back!! Love the little chest and the frame ideas!!!

I'm so excited for the release date off all your upcoming collections. Besides my scrapbooking, I see myself making several altered boxes as gifts for the holidays and plan on using this paper in my mixed media canvases. Your designs are beautiful and creative.

Never disappointed with G45!! Love these collections and the tutorial!!

What a wonderful surprise to see the re-release of these two beautiful collections. I missed them the first time around so I am super excited to know that they are available again. Wow...this has been a fun week of sneak peeks!

Thank you so much for bringing back these collections! I found Graphic 45 later when the Magic of Oz Collection was released. I'm looking forward to getting these. ( especially the Times Nouveau and the wonderful staples!

I'm so happy that these two lines returned. I love them so much & I can't wait to have them👍👏💕

What great new collections!! I love them. Hope that I can get a bonus at work this month so I can get it all!!!

Love the new, old collections! The little dresser and frame are beautiful!

OH, MY!! These collections were pre-Graphic 45 for me and I LOVE them!! Now I would like to see (and have, of course) all of the other collections that I have missed!! Thank you for the re-release of these collections, they are gorgeous!!!

When wil all of these be released. I want them all. I have already told my scrapbook store to order some for me and my friends. Hopefully, there won't be a limit that the store can buy.

Wonderful of you to bring back some discontinued collections. How gorgeous!!!

THANK YOU for bringing back Babies!! I found ONE sheet at a LSS about 2 hours away (we don't have a LSS any closer), and I've been hoarding it! Now I can get the rest!!

WOW! Two great collections!

Great idea on bringing back the old collection. Would be great for doing many different types of albums.

I am SO excited about the re-release of your first two paper collections! I was new to scrapbooking when they first came out, so only bought few sheets of each. I have been kicking myself ever since! Now, thanks to you, I have another chance, and believe me, I won't miss them this time!!! Thank you for listening and reprinting these older papers. Many of us are dying to get our hands on them!

Wow, I never saw these collections before. They are gorgeous. So happy to see their return!! The chest of drawers is wonderful.

Very Swanky! Gotta have for Old City tours across America!

I seem to say the same thing every day but I've run out of words to express the beauty of the papers and projects featured. I love all the new releases!

I thought I knew all of your collection until today. Love these two. Babies to Brides is so soft and elegant and the roaring twenties is ROARING!!

I love all of Graphic 45's Collections. The Times Nouveau Collection will work perfectly in a mini album I have plans to make.

Very, very nice papers. Love the new peekaboo box too!

Congrats and many thanks to Graphic 45 for these amazing collections and new products. keep up the great work😊

I love this older collection. I have just the little one that will be the "STAR" of my mini.

I've only recently discovered the beautiful world of Graphic 45 products so I'm excited to see these gorgeous collections for the first time! So glad I haven't missed out on them - they're stunning!

I love the times neauveau, never seen it before. Gorgeous.
