Let's get to the Pinspiration! First up is a beautiful set of Come Away with Me suitcases from Katie.

"I just love suitcases, especially stacked vintage suitcases. They simply look so adorable and makes nice decor at home!!! I do wish I’ve the space at home to place some vintage suitcases. Unfortunately I don’t (Sad...). To fulfill my imagination of “owning” a couple of stacked suitcases, I built these little stacked suitcases from scratch and what’s housed within are some mini suitcases made from matchboxes (tutorial available on Snapguide), library of mini books and those little "Titanic" and aviation treasures..."~Katie

Graphic 45 is the best!

Delightful projects! Seeing the open suitcases with the minibooks inside made me drool, then made me wonder whether the idea could be converted into an advent calendar... And while I desperately do need a keyholder I never thought of decorating one like this before, but now, wow... Thank you for the lovely, encouraging inspiration, Katie Zoey Ho and Tati Scrap :-) Wishing everyone at G45 a great weekend!
