Now, enjoy this gorgeous altered Mixed Media Box by Lori Williams using Once Upon a Springtime! You will love her fussy cutting.

"I bought multiples of this collection when it was released several years back and used almost all of it up, so I was a happy girl to see the re-release of Once Upon a Springtime. This is the perfect collection if you love to fussy cut as there are so many characters and flowers tucked throughout the various papers. I created a shadow box with the scene on the front but with the help of foam tape, the enclosed tag/cards that come with the box and of course paper I finished it solid in the back. I’ll have to find something extra magical to go in this box and it’s truly enchanted." ~Lori

Both these papers are adorable

Just when I thought Graphic 45 couldn't improve these collections, they go and take it to another level! Mind blowing!!

Fabulous! These are two of my favorite of all time. When I first started collecting Graphic 45, these were retired but I was able to locate some of the papers here and there online. I made a precious shadowbox out of ABC Primer for my daughter's teacher. I still have a project on my to do list for Once Upon a Springtime! Love that they're coming back so I can complete my collection.

Thank you G45 for bringing back ABC Primer!! I LOVE these papers! Can't wait until they are available!!

REALLY excited about the new products coming out in 2015 too!

These two paper collections were retired when I started paper crafting. I have loved them from afar. I'm doing the happy dance now. I can't wait. Thanks G45. You have made me a happy girl.
