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

Graphic 45! How do I love thee? Let me count the ways....gorgeous papers, creative ideas, wonderful staples, imagination stimulation & on & on...

I have just recently fallen in love with your paper line. Winning some of the older collections would just be devine!

My current project is choosing a space, clearing it out and organizing it. I just retired 12/31/2014 and want a place/space reserved specifically for scrapbooking and other crafts. I've fallen in love with Graphic 45 and have several ideas for scrapbook pages!

Beautiful cards. Thanks for the ideas and a chance to win your lovely products

I love the new retro-school line! As a teacher, I think I could use it for one of my boards for school!

Love the samples. Graphic 45 is my favourite line. Can't wait to do the cards for the garden club with Home Sweet Home paper. Thank you!!!

Wow, these cards are amazing! I love the layering.

I've been making cards with Graphic 45's Raining Cats & Dogs line.

Love today's projects.

Always love what you showcase. Thanks.

Great cards. And I love the prize this week of retired collections. I'm impatiently waiting to see if you'll bring back Steampunk Debutante, which was out just before I discovered you, so I only have a couple of the papers. Please, please, please.
