I don’t know what it is, but Graphic 45 papers make me pull out my sharpest scissors and start fussy cutting! The images on some of these papers from Botanical Tea collection made fantastic embellishments for my layout.


One of my favourite things I LOVE about Graphic 45 collections is that they layer so easily. I think as scrapbookers, especially if new to the craft; layering can be the hardest thing. Graphic 45 has nailed it! Fantastic combinations of large and small prints in color harmony make it simple for everyone to work with. Add to the mix [my title] some Core’dinations Signature Series cardstock; colours designed to work with the Graphic 45 palette and you have a match made in scrapbooker’s heaven!


My layout below is an example of how easily these products all play together.


I have also distressed the edges of some of my papers with Stampin’ Up! Classic Inks. I find it often gives the finished touch I look for. My title is cut from one of Wilna Furstenberg’s cut files; you’ll remember she was one of our Guest Bloggers a while back!


Thanks for checking in
