“Special invitations or special friends and family are always fun to receive. Today I created and invitation using the Midnight Masquerade and thinking I may have to have a party just to recreate the invitation, party favors and other decorations. I love the vivid and fun hues of this collection from Graphic 45.” ~Pam

We LOVE butterflies here at Graphic 45, so of course we are in love with this gorgeous layout from Sandy using Olde Curiosity Shoppe!

Butterfly Layout  Olde Curiosity Shoppe  by Sandy Trefger  Product by Graphic 45  Photo 001

"The beautiful butterfly paper in the Graphic 45 Olde Curiosity Shoppe Deluxe Collectors’ Edition inspired me to create this 12x12 layout page with a photo of my daughter and her husband.  One spring, they hired a photographer friend to take their photos around favorite places in Fort Worth, Texas.  I’ve always loved this photo.  This was a quick and easy layout—60 minutes or less as you only have to mat the photo with some solid cardstock and the stripe paper from the Graphic 45 collection and add it to the beautiful butterfly print.  I then added some lovely flowers, cut outs from the papers and the metal label holder." ~Sandy

Tip: When adding some metal elements to your layout pages, you may find that parts stick up too far for a layout such as this Graphic 45 Ornate Metal Label Holder.  However, it is very easy to gently flatten down the piece that sticks up to make it perfect for your page.  You can also change out the brads that come with the label holder and use the decorative stamped brads from Graphic 45 by cutting off one prong, fastening the remaining brad down on the back and cutting off the excess length of the prong.  You then simply use a strong glue to attach the entire piece to your layout.
