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

I love everything you do. I would love to win any of your products.

I want them both!

The once upon a time has to be right up there with the best of the best favorites . How nice that it comes as a complete set!!!

Both collections are pure magic to me. Love!!!!

Reintroduced Splendor! Love them, entirely!


So glad to see these back!!! I have used almost all of my stash.

Oh my goodness! How lovely are these - that Once Upon a Springtime - love love love it!!

Your Graphic 45 papers besides having great art work and graphics always have such rich colors

I love ABC primer. I have done several teacher's thank you gifts from it over the past few years and they always look amazing. Always on the look out for more supplies so chuffed to bits to see this today!

Two beautiful collections, a definite must have.

Love love it all!

I am so excited about these two "new" collections! When I first learned about G45 and your gorgeous papers, both of these original collections had already come out and were pretty much nonexistent in my LSS. Any time I find a paper here or there, I grab it up! I can't wait to get my hands on these!!! Thanks for bringing them back :)

The only problem with these beautiful papers, you don't want to cut them up. I wish I could collect them both.

I am so happy that you brought the "Once Upon a Springtime" collection back.

Oh I can't wait!! I love the Once Upon A Springtime collection! So excited that you are bringing back your older collections!!!

Love, love, love these fairies! And the Primer is fantastic too. What cute things I could make for my grandchilden with these sets!!!!!!!!!!!

I am so excited that you are re-releasing these beautiful collections. How wonderful!

I love the re-release of ABC Primer. That little dog sitting on the school bench is just too cute!

What beautiful paper..and I don't usually like a lot of print on my pages

Oh my gracious day - as my daughter would say - she absolutely LOVES fairies! Determined to catch one! Gorgeous!

Wahoooo! These are my fav G45 collections!!!!!

My favorite....just so sweet, makes me smile.

Love the new releases - especially the Artisan Style! Thank you.

Love the banner ! OMG I think I need both of these Collector Editions, these were two of my all time favorites !!! Maybe if I get these I'll finish my UFO's I've got going from these collections ... hum !

So happy to see ABC is returning. I hope it never retires again. In another year I have 2 grand daughters going to kindergarten. I can start some projects soon.

It makes me SOOOOOO very happy that you are re-releasing Once Upon a Springtime. Now I can USE some of the paper, instead of hoarding it. Thank you!

I am way too excited. I found Graphic 45 after these collections came out and I am just giddy with joy that I have a chance to have them now!

Beautiful collection!

OMG I am so excited that these two sets of paper collections are back out!! Saving money......

Question: Are there going to be cling stamps, flower and envelope punch outs too or just what's shown in the post here?

Swoon! I have two partial sheets of Once Upon A Springtime and one sheet of An ABC Primer! I am so happy! Both lines are amazing! How will I ever be patient in my wait?

Loved them both the first time around and love them more now

Once upon a Spring Time my favorite, so glad it is back. Looking forward to getting more, i have an idea for a beyond the page project this would be perfect for. Plus the amazing cards i can make with it. :) :)

I can't wait to get these!!!!!!!

Your papers are so beautiful and so so hard to cut.

The collections are brillant! Just love them both! Too hard to choose!

So in love with it all!!!!

The Once Upon a Springtime Collection is right up my alley! I must have it!!!

I have the ABC Primer Collection already.

Since I discovered your company at a
CK convention, I haven't bought any other paper except for cardstock - I LOVE IT!!!!!

Love both paper collections. But, I must say the ABC Primer especially touches my heart. I must create projects for my grandchildren with this nostalgic theme.

I have just started a faerie garden and would love to use these papers to scrap that process, they are just perfect
