Today we are celebrating one of our newest Deluxe Collector's Editions Communique that is shipping out this month and should be in stores by March! We have two incredible projects. One is by the amazing Jim, the Gentleman Crafter. The second project is by our Special Projects Designer Gloria Stengel! Two great ideas from two talented designers - we are in for a treat!

First, we have this amazing telephone booth that Jim, the Gentleman Crafter made from scratch. He's so amazing at building incredible projects, and this is no exception!

"This British icon uses Graphic 45’s Communique Paper collection.  The Addresser sits attractively on your desk and has a place to hold an address book, stamps, paperclips and more…" ~Jim, the Gentleman Crafter

Now, we have a gorgeous card from one of the greatest cardmakers around - Gloria Stengel! Take it away, Gloria:

"My all-time favorite Graphic 45 collection is Communique! You can imagine my joy when they decided to release a Deluxe Collection of this set of papers! Communique was the very first Graphic 45 collection that I purchased, way back in (dare I say) 2008 or 2009. It was the collection that inspired me to try out for the design team in 2010! Communique has everything I love: a black and red color scheme, typewriters, pens, vintage images, vintage postcards and handwriting, typography, and more! I have always felt that Graphic 45 created this collection specifically for me! I created an 8" x 8" desk-top home decor "card," making it both a card and a gift! This card is suitable for framing or standing on a desk or shelf. I loved this project so much that I had trouble putting it in a box and mailing it off to the office for display at CHA!

I created some "rusty" embellishments with my own custom mix embossing powder and chipboard shapes. I was happy to find some number brads in my stash to create "45." I also discovered a faux clay postage cancelation embellishment with "Anaheim" stamped onto it! Perfect for a project on it's way to the Anaheim CHA show!" ~Gloria
