These aren't cards...they're works of art! Absolutely stunning! I love G45 collections, they are all so lovely and versatile!

I almost forgot...I would use the Steampunk Spells collection for cards for the teen and almost teen members of the family!

Thank you for another chance to win!

Have moved from cards to making mini albums and love love love G45 paper

Lovely cards! Make an album with lots of colorful pocket pages.

I just finished using the wonderful Time to Flourish papers to make a set of cards and a perpetual calendar using the G45 Staples 12x12 easel album as a base. This is the best calendar type collection you have released so far! I plan to make at least 2 or 3 more of the calendars

Beautiful cards!

I would make greeting cards.
I do have two clock faces that I need to embellish. I'm going to get my G45 papers out and use those for the clocks. One is just a large, round face. The second looks like a bird cage and I think it will be fun to decorate.
thanks. Love the cards.

Love these cards. Graphic 45 is so amazing!!

LOVE this paper collection!!

Beautiful cards!! I would use Steampunk Spells to create cards, a mixed media canvas and lots of other beautiful things!! TFS!

I love this collection - guess I'm just steampunk!!!

Beautiful cards Ginger (Once Upon Springtime ) and Nichola ( Artisan)... great details on both and fabulous inspiration for these collections !

I would make cards with these amazing papers!!!

I would love to make a monthly journal. What a gorgeous collection Time To Flourish is :)

2nd attempt to post (this keeps happening here).
I am not an avid card maker & unless it's a very special person, wouldn't use G45. For me it's for altered art, the possibilities are endless.
Every time SP Spells is up for giveaway, I really cross my fingers!

I would use Steampunk Spells to creat wonderful scrapbook pages and tags! A Time to Flourish would be used to creat beautiful tags like I've seen posted on the Graphic 45 blog.

I so enjoy creating cards with G45 paper collections! The images can be used with endless variety. The inside of Ginger's card has drawn my attention...that little flower in the lower corner is the perfect embellishment. Thanks for posting today!

Lots of inspiration for beautiful cards!

Wow! Such beautiful cards.

Beautiful cards, especially Nichola's "If Opportunity Knocks". It is gorgeous. Thanks you for this opportunity to win.

Those cards are just beautiful. LOVE them!

Never have met a Graphic 45 paper etc that I didn't like.

I like to make cards and decorations and this collection is perfect for that! Beautiful colors and papers!

Everything on your blog is wonderful. I have quite a few projects that I downloaded instructions for. Graphic 45 is simply one of the all time best companies around.

Lovely cards

So amazing! I like to make an album for me. I love so much Steampunk and I like to make a steampunk album. Wonderful!

The cards are beautiful! Thanks for the inspiration.

Simply beautiful!

What wonderful ideas! TFS

I would make cards and layouts with Time to Flourish.

The cards are so beautiful and so inspiring. I love all the little details.

Everything about this collection is amazing.

I Love the cards!

Love having cards on the blog - they are so inspirational.

Cards, tags and mini albums are my favorite things to do using G45 collections. Both projects today are very pretty.

I would love using these to make a 3D Cottage from an svg file using my Cricut Explore. The brilliance in G45 papers would be amazing!

The rafflecopter said to share what I would make with "Time To Flourish"... that is not the collection up for offer on the Giveaway but I would make a 2016 scrapbook album, doing a two page spread on the highlights of each month!
Thanks for the chance to win : )

Lovely work on
these! I'd like to
make some type
of mini album!
