Delightful Ideas with our Deluxe Collector's Editions


We are overjoyed that our G45ers are as excited about our re-released collections as we are. These collections are called our Deluxe Collector's Editions and come with 12 double-sided papers, chipboard, and cardstock stickers. Today, Joanne Bain and Donna Espiritu share two amazing ideas with our Deluxe Collector's Editions. Let the inspiration begin!

First, Joanne has a brilliant idea with An ABC Primer that is also just perfect for back-to-school season. How fun!

"Blackboards are all the rage here at the moment and I thought why not alter one using the gorgeous ABC Primer collection. This little blackboard is also magnetic so it has a double purpose it can be used as a stylish blackboard or it will work perfectly for allowing the kids to use their abc magnets or numbers to stick to it." ~Joanne

Next, we have this awesome idea from Donna using our Book Box Staples and Claw Feet Staples. This awesome altered project uses Times Nouveau. Just wonderful!

"I'm torn between the metals and boxes when it comes to choosing my favorite Graphic 45 staples. So for my project, I chose both!

This altered book box is just one of my storage for ribbons and pins. I made some paper thread spools and altered some wooden clips by covering them with small paper strips and stickers. The divider is a piece of cardboard covered with some pretty papers from the collection." ~Donna

Love everything G-45 but the Gilded Lily collection is extra special!!

These are great, but personally I can't wait to get my hand in the Botanicabella set, that's definitely my favourite.

any set would make me happy if I won!! I have all of them!

Very cute ideas!

These are wonderful projects so far this week. Lots of inspiration. The papers are great!

Once upon a springtime is my all time fav I think but I'd LOVE to see Happy Hauntings come back!! Loved that collection and sadly mine is gone lol!

I love ABC Primer and so glad it's available again. I've been hoarding the supply I have but now I can buy more and use it!!

Both projects are great but I love Donna's ribbon box.


I'm itching to try this one!

Always love checking in to get some new inspiration. Beautiful as always!!

One of my very favorite collections is An ABC Primer, and I'm so excited it's available again! Today's projects are beautiful!

Always look forward to new ways that the design team has used G45 paper collections.

Wow - that chalkboard is stunning! I especially love the little kitties playing in the corner. What a fun way to use this collection, which is one of my favorites! I love the vintage style.

I really enjoy seeing the variety of designs the artists are creating with these complete collections. Always inspired and inspiring!

Wonderful projects. If there was no G45 scrapbooking would not be nearly as enjoyable.

These projects are just wonderful. Such great ideas :)

Stunning box!

I love them all!!

What lovely ideas- Thank you G 45 I love this site X

I love altered projects! There's nothing better (or prettier) than G45 paper collections to spruce up or re-do any item!

Always enjoy seeing projects created by the G45 Design Team!

Once again, beautiful projects! Love that Graphic 45 is re-releasing older collections!

I have Graphic 45 Deluxe Collector's Editions envy.

Such beautiful collections! Love each of the re-releases & glad they are back!

I love the soft pastels in Baby to Bride!

Both projects are inspirational, but I think Gilded Lily is a MAGNIFICENT collection. I would love create my own papercrafting project for someone very special.

So glad for a chance to play with these classic collections again!!!!
These projects are gorgeous!
