Personalize your Projects with Artisan Style


Our new collections are arriving in stores as we type, and we cannot wait to share more fabulous projects with these new collections. Today, we will celebrate our new Artisan Style collection. You will see a fabulous card tutorial from Annette Green, and a beautiful altered art piece by the amazing Miranda Edney. Grab a cup of tea or coffee, and join us for some Artisan Style inspiration!


First, enjoy this gorgeous Artisan Style birthday card and tutorial from the magnificent Annette!

"I love the Artisan Style collection for its bold color combinations and beautiful graphic imagery. The more black a collection includes, the more I seem drawn to it. The contrast is what makes it so dramatic! The Craftsmanship page in this collection is full of alpha letters which I find myself cutting out to make my own personalized sentiments rather than trying to find the perfect stamp set. And it all ties together perfectly this way. To help the letters stand out more, I used a Stabilo black watercolor pencil to outline, then softened the lines with a watery paint brush for a smoky shadow effect. I love to do this in my art journal too!" ~Annette

I love the beautiful colors and patterns.

I love this collection and I can hardly wait to get it in my hands!! Very impatiently waiting for my fave G45 store to get it in stock!

Beautiful colors and prints in this collection! LOVE today's creations! TFS!

It would be fun to pair the Artisan with the Botanical Tea paper. But right now I am awaiting my order for "Home Sweet Home". Can't wait. All of those old family photos will be coming out.

great colors! looking forward to working these print into some fun greeting cards! thanks for the tutorial.

Love the card, and the altered letter - both are gorgeous! Can't wait for some Artisan Style goodies!!

I am so surprised by the strong colourways, wouldn't think to look at the cover. Brilliant!
As to projects, the card is beautifully done but Miranda as always comes up with an incredible & unique piece of art (sshh, she's one of my heroines)! Tfs: )

The new paper collection is absolutely gorgeous. The card and altered letter were so beautiful - awesome art! Thank you for sharing!

That large G is something else -- just love it

Absolutely love these projects, The Altered G is amazing!

Fabulous projects!

Love the beautiful artisan collection.

Another beautiful paper collection...Thanks for these lovely projects! Annette's tutorials are always so easy to follow. Again, thanks!

Absolutely stunning!

Wonderful projects!!

I love that big chunky letter but mine would have to be an 'A'

I love the altered letter!

Alright, I know I'm blonde all the way to the roots, but good grief... Seeing the inside of this card just reminded me to use double sided G45 paper as a BASE for my cards and the inside will be all dressed up, too! And the penny finally drops...

Beautiful paper collection!

Love these projects and the new papers!

My granddaughter would love one of those letters and that card is so bold & bright!!

Just love everything G 45. The altered letter is beautiful. So much inspiration in one spot.

I love the card, beautiful colors. thank you

Beautiful paper!

C Looks like a G to me.

What a gorgeous new paper collection and the projects created with it are so lovely!

So many good things this year, I can't wait to get them all!

Love today and these papers.

Beautiful pieces. I love the altered G - enjoy making those kinds of projects.

Actually that is an altered "G" not C. Either way it is BEAUTIFUL!

Awesome projects! Love your paper collections :)

Winning anything from Graphi45 would make me very happy.

This is a beautiful collection and I am looking forward to seeing the upcoming projects. Bravo to Annette and Miranda.

I love the card and the letter. They are wonderful projects. I can't wait to get my hands on this paper.

Wonderful creations...very inspiring!

I too love to use black worth bold colors. This collection is a winner.

Every time I think I've found my FAVE G45 papers, you introduce others that I love more!!! Artisan and Springtime are staring at me and waiting to be 'arted'. I can't wait!!!

Annette card is stunning and of course the G is great because I start with a G also. I wasn't sure at first whether I liked this paper, but oh I am so wrong.
