Now, we have a great seasonal organizer from Denise Johnson using these products.

"I also crafted an embellishment keeper to use in conjunction with my 2015 Time to Flourish journal. A fun little divided drawer, organized by season and chock full of all the extras I'll need when I sit down to add my monthly journal entries.

I'm all set for a new year of memories to creatively document and hold dear-- thanks Graphic 45 for the beautiful and inspiring new collections and artful pieces that bring it all together!


Basic Instructions to recreate your own:


1. cut 4 seasonal papers to back each window. insert papers.
2. line box with Washi Tape.
3. adhere/attach feet and drawer pull.
4. organize journal cards, cut-outs, chipboard accents, etc into drawer openings.
5. add tools and extras.
when it’s time to add to your journal simply grab your drawer and photos!" ~Denise Johnson

Yay, more ways to organise myself. Although the possibilities are endless with these. Love the project, always wonder where you all find your inspiration, now if you could bottle that I would be first in line. GOOD LUCK FOR CHA.

Great way to re-purpose the shadow box. Love the idea of using it as an organizer.

I love the claw feet. I agree that if I bought all the Graphic 45 supplies I would be bankrupt. I do have a growing wish list.

Such A clever idea. Don't think I would have thought of it, so thanks Denise. With a big THANKS to Graphice 45 for coming up with the product. Love them!

What awesome embellishments and those windows are awesome. I love the one with three section the most.

The shadow box and claw feet is a match made in heaven! Patiently or not so waiting!

So many neat do-dads for the projects, as much fun to just imagine the possibilities as to create with them!

As always, I cannot wait for the new Graphic 45 collections. I love the retro feel and colors that you use.

LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I can already feel the pain of being officially with funds. The new collections are beyond words and the re-introduction is a pleasant surprise! I want them all! Then your new Staples..who doesn't want them...but I want them the most because they are gorgeous and my imagination is running wild. Oh please let me be a winner!

I love it all!!!! I can't wait to play!!!

how am I going to fit all this stuff in my scraproom?
