It's Time to Flourish with Graphic 45!


We want to take a moment to thank those who sacrificed so much for their country this Memorial Day. What bravery. You are heroes. All of you. We stand in remembrance and gratitude for you, our fallen heroes.

For some crafty inspiration this Monday, who loves using Time to FlourishThis calendar collection lends itself to so much more than calendars and can be used all year long! Today, Romy Veul and Nadya Lifa show us two non-calendar ideas to delight and inspire. 

First, Romy shares this gorgeous altered ivory Mixed Media Box using some of the gorgeous Flourish and Cut Apart pages from Time to Flourish. Love the sunflowers!

As we celebrate the final days of May, what about this absolutely gorgeous card from Nadya? Love these colors and the ATCs she includes on the cover. Wow!

"I love layering and  to use a lot of different materials in projects! To create this card I was inspired by Graphic 45 Staples  Artist Trading Tags-Ivory. I decided, why not use immediately 2 tags? Also I found it interesting to combine two collections:Time to Flourish and Baby 2 Bride. They were so suitable! Fabric and lace helped create volume and lightness. Graceful fussy cutting details added finished form to my card! Wish you have a perfect time with scissors and paper!!!" ~Nadya

Spooktacular!! I love this!!

I look forward to the G45 blog every day. I'm always inspired.

This is a beautiful paper line. I always have a calendar on my wall in my kitchen and this year it is Time to Flourish. Each month I see the beauty on my wall. Thanks for the great designs for each month. Love it! :)

Beautiful projects!!! :-D

Cards for all my friends!

I would create calendars, minis and altered art with this collection!

I love seeing all the projects presented on this blog. Such a creative group of artists.

Surprised it said to comment on time to flourish, but I really would love to make my mother-in-law some awesome cards and gifts, she loved the one I did for her birthday!

Two gorgeous projects, Ladies. And, lovely papers!

Beautiful projects! I think Time to Flourish would make a great one-year scrapbook.

What a lovely combination of colors! Nadya's tags are beautiful.

I love boxes. I would try a decorative box that can sit out and hold treasures.

Steampunk Spells this

Wonderful projects! And, wonderful giveaway!! I love Steampunk!

Nadya, your card is exquisite!

Romy did such an amazing job creating the mixed media box, and, you're right, Nadya's card is "absolutely gorgeous".

So excited for the new paper lines to come in. G45 has such an awesome design team everything is so amazing. Love G45!!

(2nd attempt at comment, 1st didn't work)

Love the colors of Steampunk Spells! I'm already planning my Halloween decorations and this collection would be a lovely addition! Thanks for this opportunity!

One of my favorite lines

I'd love to make a Steampunk wreath!

Time to Flourish is so versatile. I am loving this box. Then look at the lovely lavender project.

Both are beautiful, creative, and wonderful. Thanks.

So sweet! Thank you for sharing these beautiful designs and for the great contest. Happy Memorial Day!

Lovely projects...gorgeous papers! Lovin' Steampunk Spells too...sure would love to win the collection.

I personally love to making projects by flowers and lace... all the girlish stuff~ Love the sharing of Time to Flourish so much!

I think I would create a mini album celebrating my mother. She has dementia and can no longer remember much, but I sure do! I would put in photos and journaling pages/tags with memories of good times we had.

Love the sunflowers on the first project and the pastel colors on the second. I would create cheery sunflower cards.

Those are the colors of my craft room which is french victorian. I would like to make some framed artwork!

Would create a mini album or a shadow box!! Love Time to Flourish!!

I would love to create a card making kit for my daughters in law using various Graphic 45 papers and embellishments. Thank you so much for all the inspirations by your talented designers.

Beautiful projects!!

Love to create beautiful layouts!!!!

I went to a craft show two weekends ago and one crafter had made covered object using Graphic 45 products. Everything was covered in paper and to tell the truth they did great work, but it was too much design for me. It needed to be broken up with something plain...like small design paper or paint or something. Too much of a good thing.

Beautiful creations!

Love Time To Flourish. Some of my absolute favorite G45 papers. Of course, I'd make some fun papercrafts, cards, etc. with these lovelies!

These are both terrific! Love the warm colours of the first; and always like to see a little purple in a project. :D
