Lori makes such amazing cards. The layering of this card is just beautiful! The sewn edges are such a lovely touch. Fussy cut holly makes it so festive!

"This collection is so bright and cheery and is perfect for any holiday projects. There’s a little bit of everything included so it’s makes for a very versatile Christmas collection. Need cute? There is an adorable Santa ready to take the stage or if you want to go more vintage which is what I’ve done on this card, there again, it’s perfect. I’ve added a fancy cut die to add to the Victorian feel and then fussy cut all the ivy leaves. I wanted to add another layer of detail so I applied liquid glass to all the berries. You can’t see it great but it gave a finish look to each of them. Now I challenge you to start making those one of a kind keepsakes cards to hand out to your family and friends this season." ~Lori

If you are going to make your own for Christmas now is the time to start. I always wait until too late. Oh well I have fewer cards to mail each year, less people want to exchange cards. It's a shame it was a fun annual ritual and they are missing out on this lovely Graphic 45 collection.

I am patiently waiting for these papers and the matching goodies!

I can't wait to work with this line. It is the best ever.

Christmas?? Gosh, I know it starts early in Craft Land but I'll be honest, I am not quite in that particular zone yet. Saying that, these bright, rather Nordic styles are Cherry!!
Christmas.... hmmmm..

This collection has such beautiful clear colors.

Ho Ho Ho - what an exciting time...the new lines are coming to the stores! Love Christmas - G45 does it best.

Going to work on my Christmas cards right now!

I'm excited to start making Christmas cards. Beautiful projects!

Beautiful new Christmas collection! Can't wait to get it!

Beautiful colors in this collection.

This old traditional type of Christmas warms my heart. Another hit for G45!

You're done it again Graphic 45! Another paper collection that is just stunning! Way to go!

Two of my favorite artists featured in one blog post! I just love Ginny's fabulous layers...and the white accents she used really make this layout feel festive and frosty. Lori's card is so sweet and filled with dimension. Falling in love with this paper collection!
