Great Ideas from our G45 Special Project Designers!


Annette Green and Gloria Stengel are usually busy helping create our Graphic 45 class project sheets, but occasionally they treat us with extra goodies to share here on the blog! Annette and Gloria make incredible projects using the Art-C Groove Tool and Graphic 45 paper. You will love the great ideas they share with us today!

First, Annette has the best tutorial for these Rare Oddities treat bags! So great for those classroom Halloween parties or just a gathering you'd have at your house. Annette show you great tips with the Art-C Groove Tool as well. How fun!

"These easy treat holder tags would be great for kids or even for an adult Halloween party. I’ve used just a few sheets in the paper collection to make these six tags, but you could make a multitude of them with the remaining papers and a few more tags and chipboard pieces. " ~Annette

Now, Gloria takes us on a tour of this awesome Times Nouveau project made with the Art-C Groove Tool! Take it away, Gloria:


I created a 6" x 5" x 1/2" accordion-style mini album using "timeless" as a theme, which represents what Graphic 45 is all about, timeless papers and embellishments!



There are eleven decorated panels, plus the front covers! The mini is decorated with coordinating colors of red, blue, and black from the Times Nouveau Deluxe Collector's Edition, Home Sweet Home, Couture, and Typography Collections. I love how the Graphic 45 Collections are so versatile and color-matched.



The Art-C Groove Tool is great for adding ink to all the edges of the paper and tags. The sanding attachment is perfect for sanding rough edges on the chipboard elements and sanding embossed paper.



The album opens to nearly 30 inches!



Then, flip the accordion section over, and you get even more pages!
