"I’m really excited to be sharing my 2016 Christmas Album with you today.  As a G45er you’ll know how much detail Diane and her team pack into the stunning paper collections Graphic 45 release for us to be creative.  With beautiful papers, coordinating cut outs and embellishments, we’re always spoilt for choice when it comes to making our projects. The papers always work their magic and allow us to create beautiful projects.  The St Nicholas collection is packed full of fabulously traditional papers and imagery for your seasonal craft making.

Having browsed through the 12 x 12 St Nicholas pad I started creating the page designs by taking out one sheet of each paper and moving them about together to get a flow of colours I was happy with, and then matched in cut-aparts, borders and patterns and solids to create the final mix for each page.  St Nick sets the scene on my album cover. He was the just the perfect size for my album.  The album has a box cover, four double sided interactive pages, large pull out mats and a photo book at the back, creating oodles of space to add your festive photos and create a beautiful Christmas keepsake. There’s a PDF Tutorial to go with the album available from my website and full video of the album via the link below:

"The perfect present start with the best card, and so i decided to make a special card for a special friend using my favourite christmas collection “Saint Nicholas”. Of course the papers match perfectly with these Petaloo flowers and a vintage christmas image. Have you started making your Christmas cards?" ~Nico Scrap

Love the Graphic45 papers, AND all the inspiring projects! I have made things after seeing the projects. In awe of the creative minds that can just sit down and make up such beautiful items. For a long time I just looked at the paper and put it away as too pretty to use. Now I wait for the projects to inspire me to use them.

What a stunning album!! Thank you for the tutorial video and pdf! Merry Christmas!

The creations always so inspirational! Would be tickled to win this weeks prize. Thank you Graphic 45. And a very Merry Christmas to all!

Just thinking of all the Beautiful things I could make with this Gorgeous Christmas collection.

I LOVE Graphic 45. Every collection is special and so beautifully created, how can we not be inspired. Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanzaa and a Happy New Year!

Love love love the album. Thank you for the tutorial (& Graphic 45 of course).

Gorgeous projects! G45 papers always make it easy to create such beauty. I could just frame a group of 6x6 papers and be happy! lol

I love that box album and I love the vintage look of the cards.
(Even more, I love this wonderful collection, perfect for so many projects!)

I really like everything that G45 company does. I really like their paper either by getting 1 sheet by 12x12 or getting the same Christmas paper but in a pad. I also belive that your sticker are also adorable, too. For me G45 paper and sticker just seem like to they catch my eye just like you are looking at it for the first time. I like the album ya made from this G45 Christmas collection and I also really like the Christmas box to hold the album inside of it. Thank you very much for sharing this gorgeous Christmas that was so creative.
**Merry Christmas to all**
