Red, White, and Blue with Graphic 45

By the sea card with logo

Happy 4th of July, G45ers! Many of our American G45ers are celebrating this holiday today, and we hope everyone has a sunny, fun, and friend-filled day! We thought it would be fun to share red, white, and blue projects with you today! It's always fun to start with a color palette and create from there. We have a beautiful card from Lori Williams using By the Sea! Then, a project using red, white, and blue with splashes of other colors by the wonderful Andrew Roberts. It will be a great 4th of July here on the blog!

Before we begin, we must announce a winner! Our randomly chosen winner of the prize pack below is...

-Nancy Barrick Gaumer: G45 washi tape??!! I haven't seen that yet. I can't wait!!! And I could use this collection for sooo many things.

Congratulations, Nancy! Please email joanna@g45papers.com to claim your prize. Enjoy your goodies pictured below!


The By the Sea card below is a brilliant summer card and is so perfect for our red, white, and blue celebration! Love this from Lori Williams.

"I really love this collection for so many reasons….first I adore the shore. Anything with a beach themesteals my heart right away. I’m also a very patriotic girl, so the colors are perfect for a 4th of July project. Mix the two of those things with Graphic 45 and you’ll have the By The Sea Collection.

I really love adding depth to my work with lots of layers and lots of foam tape and embellishments. Little details like stitching on a card or that little twig of ribbon can really take your projects up a notch and add so much to them." ~Lori

"There are many types of packaging we throw away everyday. I saw this Brie cheese box had potential, this combined with the Good Ol Sport collection gave me the perfect opportunity to create a keepsake of photos of my sons." ~Andrew

Tip: When Layering your fussy cut images, create depth by utilising different sized images, mounted at different heights.
