Great Ideas + 1 Tutorial with our Newest Collections


Who has crafted with our new collections? Have you picked up Raining Cats & Dogs, Time to Celebrate, and 'Twas the Night Before Christmas yet? We are loving to see the projects shared so far. Our G45ers and designers truly make the collections come alive. Today, we will be sharing some of our Design Team's beautiful creations. You will love what they have created with these new collections.

First, we are sharing Rhea Freitag's gorgeous Raining Cats & Dogs wall decor. We love this awesome piece with beautiful banners and flowers! There's even a tutorial so you can create your own.

"Some of us on the design team were challenged by the Graphic 45 crew to make some fall décor to inspire your seasonal decorating. I was thrilled to find that the color palate in the Raining Cats and Dogs line to be so versatile! As soon as I started flipping through the paper, I knew it would be a great match for this Masonite kit I had on hand from shopping at my local craft outlet. Now I must admit, sometimes I am not the most perfect crafter, and getting paper on oddly shaped things can be tricky. To that end, I put together a Snapguide to show you all my tips and secrets to sneak around some of those pesky details. I hope you enjoy!"~Rhea
