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

Totally blown away! These are both absolutely stunning and scrumptious! Lots of great fussy cutting and layering on the layout and Nico's creation is darkly delicious! TFS!

What inspiration! Love both shadow box and vase. Graphic 45 papers are a dream to use!

Can't believe how beautiful the glass/jar is. Worlds Fair is fabulous.

Both projects are stunning! I love everything Graphic 45!!!

I am absolutely obsessed with Midnight Masquerade! The colors, the patterns...they are gorgeous!!!

Nico, where do you get your ideas? So inventive. Love the upcycled vase. Just beautiful.

I always loved World's Fair. I'd love to win!

Two more beautiful projects but the "Nature In The Glass" by Nico Scrap is just gorgeous. That would solicit all kinds of oohs & aaahs if I had that in my house. Another must try! :-)

Please choose me to win the beautiful, quirky, steampunky Old Curiosity Shoppe prize!!!
Please, oh, please, oh, please, oh, please!!
