Lori amazes with An ABC Primer. We love the layering and great images and techniques on this card. Amazing!

"I loved this collection when it was first released so I was so excited to see it being re-released with some updates. I didn’t do fussy cutting on this card because I felt like the images worked better in straight block form, layered on card stock. Does that mean I think of school as more rigid?, LOL...not sure but I do like the way the card came together. With many of my cards the interior is finished just as the exterior, giving the recipient even more to look at on the inside."~Lori

Love Graphic 45!

My projects are to do mini albums of my daughter once she's born, and of her older brother as well ;-) !

Wonderful cards!

Getting a greeting card in the mail brings a smile to any receiver. Getting a handmade greeting card that's created using G45 designer collections brings not only a smile but a gift of joy. I would love to bring joy to some friends and family by creating cards from these retired collections. I want to win!!!!!!!!!!

Gorgeous cards, thanks very much to Lori and Ginny for sharing. The ABC is another fabulous collection.

What awesome cards! I love the ABC Primer. It reminds me of books when I was little.

I am currently working on a memorial piece for my mother ... have to make 8 of them for all of my siblings, a gift for my grandson's class, and cards for birthdays throughout the year. I LOVE Graphic 45 paper! The inspirations from the Design Team never ceases to amaze me. Thank you to all.

Amazing cards! I currently am trying to organize my craft area, work on making birthday cards and use properly use my new Inktense pencils. Thanks for the chance to win!

I've been working on a dog themed shadow box for a beloved friend with papers from Raining Cats and Dogs collection. May have to make one for myself. We have 5 dogs!

Great cards.
I have been making lots of cards for our church card ministry and hope to work on heritage scrapbooking.

Beautiful project!
Thank you!


I love that the cards are also decorated on the inside:)

Just finishing a "mini" with "Come Away with Me" that's 3 inches thick! :) Ready for new/old pastures - would love to do a book of pics from my boys' weddings - they all were in each of them, using A Proper Gentleman.

Beautiful cards. I've been in Valentine mode, but would love to create a mini for my granddaughter who started preschool!

Awesome artwork! I'm making cards for gifts...love Graphic 45!

Fabulous projects with gorgeous papers!

I would LOVE to win this package just to get to try your products!! I'm so in love with EVERY item! Thank you!

As always, gorgeous projects. Graphic 45 is amazing.

I got new papers from Amazon and am planning on making a shadowbox... love the selection, would adore to win anything by you!

Valentine's Day makes are top of my list right now but I have to buy some of your gorgeous Raining Cats & Dogs papers so I can make a little mini album for my pups, it would be so perfect! Thanks for a chance to win those gorgeous retired products!

Love the projects! I can't wait until I can get ABC primer papers!
