"I love it when wisdom and beauty can be found in the same place, don’t you?  The new Portrait of a Lady collection from Graphic 45 is filled with dozens of gorgeous images, enticing colors and richly patterned papers.  The typography pages are also brimming with wise and inspiring sayings like the one featured on this simple easel card: 'Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.'  How true!" ~Kathy

Tip: Create a “stopper” for your easel card by backing a border strip with cardboard packaging or foam adhesive.  

Tip: Give those “hard to use” letters from your Staples Kraft Alphabet Banner Tags a new life as a design element in a card! I traced the tops of these tags (Q and V) onto designer paper.  ( Paper saving tip: No need to cover the whole tag, as only the tops will be seen. ) The decorative edge is a quick and easy way to add beautiful shaped layers to your card with a minimum of work.

Tip: I backed the focal image with cardboard packaging material to raise it up from the card base.  This creates depth and dimension, and it also makes the image stand out.

Tip: My sentiment panel is die cut from the paper collection and glued onto a die cut doily.  To make it stand out, I “framed” it with vintage trim.

Tip: Don’t have ribbon to match your papers?  Make your own!  I used a couple of drops of Tattered Rose Distress reinker  (a perfect match for the vintage pink in this collection) on Ivory Seam Binding ribbon.  Spritz liberally with water and squeeze to distribute the color all through the ribbon.  Then dry with your heat gun and tie a bow.  Easy peasy!

Absolutely stunning! So many possibilities!

The colors are great, especially the peach. The ladies are very exquisite and beautiful. I like the portrait of a lady collection.

Beautiful collection

Loving these sneak peaks. But this is one of my 2 favorites. would love to win this one. Thank you.

Oh my gosh. This is so beautiful! I love pink and green. Can't wait til this is in my local store.

These are so beautiful. Ivan just see Aladdin sitting down to afternoon tea and answering her mail with these papers.

So beautiful. I love this set.

Another beautiful collection. So feminine and elegant. Another must have!

What a beautiful paper collection. Stepping back in time.

Thanks for the chance!

Elegant and sophisticated, beautiful.

again Graphic 45 has outdone themselves! What a gorgious collection in these soft tones.... The Victorian style has stolen my heart....LOVE IT!

Gorgeous collection, love the colors! Would love to make a mini album. Beautiful!

This would make a lovely desk organizer for work made using chipboard. A nice tea bag box holder with double doors that pull outward in order to select your favorite tea bag from. This too would be made with chipboard and the paper used to decorate and line it. The collection is making my head spin with ideas. Hot air balloon, Valentine gift boxes, cupcake stands, cookie boxes for servicemen . . .

Oh! My goodness I am absolutely in love with this new collection. I make journals, memory books and cards and have three ladies who will adore these papers. Can't wait for it to be released for sale, might have to make a pre-order with my retailer. Beautiful! X

This is my favourite collection. Beautiful faces, sweet ladies and vintage roses! 😍😍😍

Wow wow wow, love everything about this collection - so pretty, would love to make an album with this.

Wow. Love it

Love this. Graphic 45 designs speak to my spirit. All things vintage! Thank you for this wonderful art!

Portrait of a Lady is a stunning collection. I am anxious to get an album made for my grandmothers pictures. She deserves a place of honor and this collection of papers would be just the perfect touch for this lady.

Gorgeous!

Awesome.....great designers

I have to have to have get my hands on this entire range! I haven't been so excited about anything since Ladies Diary! I don't know how, and I don't know when, but I will get this superb addition to my G45 collection! Well done G45

Gorgeous card!! I love it!

Lovely!

So delicate! Matches With former series, as well which is also a great thing.

I love everything you make but can I be honest. I love the theme and I love the green but I wish this was a different color I am really over done on the peachy color I love your blues and purples just over the peach.

How Ibwould love to win this collection that feels so nostalgic - he images are. Eaitiful and the color palette would be so fun to work with. Pretty please?
