Cheers to an All-Star Blog Starring a Double Page Layout & an Upcycled Glass

 Hello, G45ers!

At Graphic 45, we know that today's little moments become tomorrow's precious memories, and in honor of that sentiment, we have two lovely projects to share with you.  First, Joanne Bain will have you seeing stars with a radiant double page layout fit for the celebrities in your life, featuring the vivacious Vintage Hollywood. After that, Nico Scrap will give you butterflies with an upcycled glass project featuring the breathtaking Botanicabella, that includes an artful antique finish to really complete that vintage aesthetic. It would make a lovely vase for those flowers you have been meaning to get for that special someone. Inspiration awaits below!

Vintage Hollywood Double Page Layout

By Joanne Bain

‘This was such a challenge for me as I don’t create double page layouts at all. I decided to stay with my white space style and add some lovely layers of fussy cut images from the gorgeous Vintage Hollywood collection. I just loved the printed stars in this collection and they were perfect to create my unisex page of my kids.’ ~Joanne Bain

"Monarch butterflies always fly in groups and so should human beings. Those amazing butterflies flew in this glass and now it became a jar where flowers can bloom." ~Nico Scrap

Oh my I love the case! How gorgeous.
The layout is a wonderful use of white space!

How inventive these 2 projects are. The layout is so sympathetic to the papers and the glass is useful as well as decorative. Thank you all.

Two amazing projects, as usual, love them!!! Thank you G45!!!

Super Wow Factor on both of these projects today! Joanne and Nico are amazing designers! ~Sandy

Such beautiful and creative inspiration!!!

Inspirational projects as always! Would love to win this package.💕

Joanne is a fussy cutting genius she definitely goes overboard with the decorating and it is just gorgeous. Nico's project is amazing love the rust effect.

Such wonderful goodies. I wish that I had better access to these papers. I love them so. I have been making memory books for each of my grandchildren and my two daughters. It's the only legacy that I can leave them. I wish more of the stores had it. Joann.com had it for a while, but it has slowly dwindled down to nothing really. Makes me so sad. Where do you find your graphic 45 at a reasonable price?

Both projects blew me away! Great use of fussy cutting to create gorgeous projects!

Amazing creations today! Especially love the vase - wow!! Judy D.

Gorgeous layers
and items on the
layout and the
vase is lovely.

Both of these projects are so dramatic, but each in their own way! I do a lot of two-page spreads but I never place the focus in the middle - it's so striking!

Great pieces.
Love that glass.
Have to give that one a try.
