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!
