Jill has transformed the Graphic 45 Matchbook Box into a 3D wall hanging that would be perfect for any budding ballerinas. She found the Graphic 45 Nutcracker Suite papers so versatile - and definitely not only for Christmas creations.
Jane stamped the corner of her folded vanilla card with the floral stamp using olive ink then stamped the decorative border across the centre in black. She cut out one of the labels from the Meadow Lark paper, scalped around the top edges of the forget-me-not flowers on it then insert stamped and cut out images of the bird and nest, more flowers were cut from the Beautiful Blooms paper and added on top.
The May Flowers sheet of paper is just adorable and well suited for making easy and beautiful cards. Jane simply layered it on card and the pretty Sun Kissed paper, she added stitches to the top left and bottom right-hand corners. The Flower pop-out sheet is a great way to make wonderful flower embellishments, so quick and easy! Just pop them out, layer them together, curl up the edges and viola you’re done!

Jane loved the sheet that was left over when she popped all the flower pieces out, so she set herself a challenge to make a card with it and this is it!! What a clever idea, waste not want not!
Graphic45 Design Team member Jane Tregenza used the Old Curiosity Shoppe collection to create this stunning masculine layout. The beautiful chipboard and clock gear embellishments look amazing against the splendour of the vintage motifs.
Gloria Stengel from the Graphic 45 design team has designed this beautiful card, and shares the instructions here.
Finally, check out this stunning shadow box created by Arlene Cuavas! We love how Arelene layered so many of the Graphic 45 Metal Staples on the cover of this box and then coloured them to work with the Secret Garden range. You can see more details on how she created this project here.
Iris Uy created this layout for her dear friend Arlene Alog-David who is also a scrapper and who constantly reaches for her dreams. The design of the layout tells a story in itself - the clocks representing time well spent by a courageous woman who dreams big and works at making each and every one of those dreams come to reality. The postage stamps of ladies in different hats - representing her as a woman with different but equally important roles, a mother, a wife, an entrepreneur, a crafter, a photographer, an adventurer. Finally the door represents opportunities and even more adventures to be taken in the near future.
Carole created this vibrant and dimensional layout using G45 Bird Song. The colours and richness of the papers were so easy to use and so many ideas came from the gorgeous prints. Carole also created some flowers using a Martha Stewart Border Punch.
Carole created this pretty card using G45 Bird Song, this very detailed card would be lovely for someone special.
We thank Irene Tan for allowing us to share this stunning page using the Ladies Diary products. The layering and intricacy is a vital part of the page, but it also has a beautiful serenity.
Tara Orr has created this gorgeous layout using G45 Bird Song, very rich and textured layout with plenty of detail.

Finally, Kathy Montgomery shares these two stunning cards. The layers of detail in the Ladies Diary papers and elements are just breathtaking.
Jill van Iperen loved making a whimsical piece with the fabulous Graphic 45 Happy Haunting papers, Alpha Stickers and Cardstock Stickers. As always, the Graphic 45 papers blend brilliantly together. Don't be afraid to mix them up!
Jill also made some simple tags with using the Graphic 45 Happy Haunting papers and mixed it with some of the G45 Staple Trims. Perfect for some ghoulish tags!
Jane loves vintage images and just fell in love with this little girl in the Happy Hauntings collection, but Jane didn't want a Halloween card, so she cut out images from the range and created a little delightful scene fit to surprise a friend!
Jane has used a collection of the Staples range to create this card, she used a Envelope Tag in the background as she loved the design on it, she then added the Alphabet stickers for the sentiment.
We’re thrilled that Graphic45 is now one of our suppliers, and they are becoming a fast favourite brand amongst our own design team. Enjoy these awesome projects they have compiled for you.
Jilly van Iperen found the Graphic 45 Olde Curiosity Shoppe papers were almost too easy to work with. Here she's turned them into a mixed media book by cutting and stitching a careful selection of the papers onto cotton batting.
With an insatiable attraction to all things a little left of centre, Jilly van Iperen couldn't resist the Graphic 45 Old Curiosity Shoppe Range. Here she's taken one of the 5x5 Kraftboard Shadowbox and Kraft Album and turned it into her own little box of the absurb.
Jane was super excited when she found out Aussie Scrap Source was stocking this brand, as she is a BIG fan of Graphic 45 because vintage is her thing!!The images on the Botanica sheet are perfect sizes for cards with a wonderful collection of pictures.
Jane has a bit of an obsession with birds and flamingos are a particular favourite! Jane used a range of Distress Inks to create this colourful collage. One of the leaves was cut from the rainforest paper and inserted behind the floral postage image to keep to the tropical theme.
Louise W created this beautiful little Graphic 45 Kraft mini album and box for a friend who's expecting a baby shortly. She's created boxed frames from strips of cardstock to allow the recipient to put her own photos inside and added ribbon inside the box to hold the book in place. A light layer of white gesso and some pink distressing ink sets the look while fussy cut G45 Little Darlings and Olde Curiosity Shoppe papers combine with G45 metal flowers and some small Prima roses to add the detailed touches.
We loved this gorgeous little printers tray created by the talented Nancy Wethington. She's created a set of intricate little scenes using the Olde Curiosity Shoppe range along with lots of cute little oddities and embellishments.
This first beautiful layout by artist Yuka Hino was created with the Little Darlings range and is full of amazing little touches that we adored. The laced heart and fussy cut detailing co-ordinate perfectly with the soft vintage distressing and layering to bring together a simply stunning page.
This second layout by Yuka brings a more masculine feel but features her signature fussy cutting and inking. She cleverly draws your eye to the photograph with clustered details and dimension.
We’re thrilled to announce that we are now proud suppliers of the gorgeous Graphic45 brand!
We plan to have preorders up this weekend but in the meantime you can make up your shopping list with these pics of four stunning new lines released at this CHA, full of vintage goodness and signature graphic images!
