Next,  we have a bit of the sea to brighten our day! Keri shares a gorgeous By the Sea mixed media tag with a video to show you how she created this beauty as well!

"Here’s a little honest bit about me...I don’t really like stamps. OK...I like graphic stamps, but stamps that are images are just never my thing. However this month I wanted to challenge myself to use some of my Graphic 45 stamps that aren’t usually in my creative arsenal. I chose the “By the Sea” stamps because I LOVE the mermaid stamp.

I hope you enjoy my process video!"~Keri

To close this inspiring day, Katie has this gorgeous Precious Memories Patina Box and Baby card for a baby boy. This is just a masterpiece! Wow!

"One of my friends at Chicago just had a baby boy, and this collection comes in time to create something special for her. I made these little booties and create this “Welcome the Little One” sentiment inside the box, as if the booties are being hung under the tree-top. Revisiting my Patina Snapguide tutorial, I’m using blue with a touch of pink for this shadow box to match the paper collection." ~Katie

Wow!! Amazing art!!

Wow Awesome projects xx

Just lovely!!

Awesome mixed media projects! Plus I LOVE "Raining Cats and Dogs"! Would love to use it to scrapbook my two new rescued furry friends!

my crafting tip is always buy the collection instead of the loose paper for easy coordination.

To avoid buying duplicates, have a small looseleaf binder to record your purchases. For every G45 line, I have a page to remind me which pads, stamps, banners, etc. I already have on hand. Comes in handy when I am starting a project to see what I still need.

Beautiful and fun projects. Loved them. Your projects are always so inspiring,

Simply gorgeous!


Love, love, love your paper collections!

What gorgeous creations! LOVE the reindeer and the baby gift is adorable!

My favorite crafting tip is to keep learning. I just found Graphic 45 and all the wonderful things you can make. I have been scrapbooking for over 10 years and there is always something new to learn. How fun and with such gorgeous paper. Can't wait to get my paper and start my first mini album!

The sea themed tag is AMAZING!

Mixed media is really popular right now. Your DT has done a wonderful job of showcasing this style. Loved watching the video of the creative process. Thanks for this opportunity to win a delightful product package!

Some amazingly projects!
I love the Raining Cats Dogs collection!

The sea theme tag is terrific, the little booties are such cuties. As for the altered reindeer? Oh Miranda my dear, I am blown away here!!

Sorry, not sure what came over me there but would be thrilled to win Raining Cats & Dogs!

Awesome baby gift idea ! Inspirational mixed media projects too !

My kind of day-love it all.

Maravilhoso! Adoro!

Just so wonderful!

What a beautiful, colorful day of outstanding projects. The altered reindeer is spectacular.

would love to win this collection. Thanks for the chance to win.

I'm a Newbie to Scrapbooking - so I guess my tip is for Me to KEEP Learning!!!

Mixed media is a fun way to alter a simple piece into something dramatic. My tip: start with something small and use up your scraps.

Thanks for the fun, artistic inspiration today!!

Great Projects!

Gorgeous projects - all!

My tip is not to hoard G45 papers because they are so beautiful. Use them! Now I need to follow that tip. LOL.

I love these mixed media projects!

The reindeer and memory box are just beautiful! My tip is to put anything that won't be used again away as soon as you use it. It helps with being able to find what you do need and keeps you from having to clear away a huge pile of stuff when you're finished! :)

I love Graphic 45! Best inspiration of any blog in the history of mankind and some pretty dog gone darn giveaways!

This is a beautiful project. Makes me think Spring is here.

Have baby wipes handy for quick clean up!

So many talented designers on G45, they are all inspirational,

so beautiful. nice. best insiration for me
