We are half way there….

on our adventure with Graphic 45. Are you having fun yet? Have you been inspired? Make sure you leave a comment and let us know. You can comment EVERY day (on that day’s individual post)  for up to five chances to win! In case you are just joining us for the first time this week, that’s okay! We are celebrating the partnering of Graphic 45 and Core’dinations Core Impressions from Graphic 45. We will be here all week!

First up on today’s inspiration list are two gorgeous cards from Heather Bowser. Heather uses the houndstooth print with the cardstock on the front and then repeats it on the inside with the Graphic 45 paper. The shape is beautiful and we love how she accented it with some green Core Impressions Cardstock.

Don’t be afraid to mix prints like Heather did with the Graphic 45 patterned paper and the embossed clocks.

And check out this beauty from Sarah Hodgkinson. She is the epitome of timeless, just like the Graphic 45 papers and Timeless Core Impression lines. Sarah created her using Quickutz Dies and gently sanding the background of the Core’dinations Core Impressions.

Have a GREAT day! We hope you are enjoying yourselves this week!

    WOW!! SIMPLY AMAZING GIRLS!! I just LOVE them all!! But the way that Sarah used all of the papers to design her card is just so inventive!! I wouldn’t have used the clock paper for her body but having the part of the clock show on her legs and arms is so AWESOME!! Like she used an old newspaper, but know they have the added demension!!

    I am SO happy ! I have a belated 25th b-day card to make for my oldest son, and Christmas cards/gift card holders to make for both my sons…wish I had some of Graphic 45’s Christmas papers, but I do have A Proper Gentleman AND a buch of Coredinations paper to play with. Really wish I had the clocks paper, but I do have the CB clocks embossing folder and some Tim Holtz gears…hope I can turn it all into some great guy cards. So hard to do stuff like that for young men !
