Now, enjoy this stunning Precious Memories card from Annette. Take it away, Annette:

"Easel cards are some of my favorites to create, not only for the “wow factor” but for the additional real estate to use as many beautiful Graphic 45 papers as possible. Creating a shadow box effect isn’t difficult. Simply die cut the shape you like and cut away the center with a craft knife and ruler. I use  ½” wide strips of chipboard for the frame walls, cover it with paper and adhere the die-cut shape to it. Voila! an impressive 3D effect." ~Annette

Cute has to be word for projects today, Great pprs especially on second one. Sadly, I still can't access the competition, the only option given is Twitter which I don't use. Good thing I don't only visit for this part of blog, hee hee.

I had to pin both of these cards because they are just beautiful. I love your paper collections and have a few sheets of a lot of them. They are to beautiful to use.! Crossing my fingers cuz Id love to win the awesome prize.

Absolutely love the projects today! Can't wait to get my hands on Home Sweet Home!!

LOVE both of these new paper collections! We're all going to have some fun when our local stores get their supplies. Yes! I'm hoping our comments will qualify us for your prize package. Many of us visit your site daily, but choose to not use other internet social media. We, too, are loyal fans of G45!


I love making 3D scenes with Graphic 45 paper. I wouldn't even try it with any other.

Thanks for the contest! I linked on FB, but FB required authorization for the post (concerned it was spam), so it wasn't logged into your tracker for the extra 10 entries...

Precious Memories is beautiful but Home Sweet Home is my favorite!

everything is wonderful I love

Wonderful papers and wonderful projects today.

Great projects! Love these papers!

There's such a wonderfully nostalgic look and feel to Home Sweet Home! G45 papers are always so beautiful.

Love both projects for that nostalgic quality.Would love to try my hand at fussy cutting this week's collection. Thanks for the beautiful inspirations.

AMAZING!!! Both projects are just stunning.

This paper is beautiful and the things made with it are just darling. Thanks for such great paper G45

Th easel card is so pretty, all that fussy cutting and intricate details. Beautiful.

Love, love, love the altered matchbook box...it takes me back to happy childhood days. The card is stunning. I love all the fussy cutting in both projects!

I love both of these lovely projects and the beautiful collections they're made from, but the rafflecopter giveaway is limited only to those who use twitter? I'm very disappointed in that!

In so much "Aweee" its gonna take a week to pick up my jaw.

Fabulous new collections! I always love them. It would be hard to pick just one! Thank you G45.
