Since today is Wednesday and we are here with Graphic 45 so why not have some more inspiration for you???  OH YES…..

We have one of these awesome packs for grabs, too! Our Signature Series Cardstock...it’s FabUlous! In the past we have teamed up with Graphic 45 for our Core Impressions and this past summer we debuted the Signature Series. Now you can get the gorgeous Graphic 45 designs on our cardstock AND their “signature” colors! So if you have loads of Graphic 45 sitting at home waiting to be used, this pack of cardstock will match perfectly.

AND of course we are giving one away here!!! Make sure you head over to the Graphic 45 Blog for more chances to win!

AND we always do a little something over on our Facebook page, too, so make sure you check in there often. Graphic 45 has a Facebook page so make sure you go over there and tell them how much you looooove them AND THAT WE SENT YOU:):):)

We have a super cool layout for you from Design Team Member Melissa Oliveira to start off today.

Melissa sanded the clocks from the Graphic 45 Timeless collection and then inked them in a “core”dinating color, just looks awesome and makes those clocks really pop, don’t you think?

Melissa colored in the clock hands with a black zig milennium pen then added a thin layer of glossy accents and allowed it to dry to make them  really shine.

Add some May Arts ribbon and you have a gorgeous layout.

Next up Design Team Member Leica Forrest created this gorgeous box and mini album for a future trip to Paris! A girl can dream, right??!?!  That is the beauty about the Graphic 45 papers. They take you to another place with their gorgeous Parisian themes and images of fairy tales and all things beautiful.

We want you hear how excited you are!

Today we have some gorgeous projects for you! Let’s Start off with a Layout from Design Team Member Shaunte Wadley. So many gorgeous gorgeous details!  Shaunte used loads of Graphic 45 products and anchored the layout  beautifully with some Core Impression in the Black Magic.  Hand cutting that Graphic 45 paper is TOO much fun! Don’t be afraid to use metal accents on your layouts like Shaunte did here with the flowers from the Graphic 45 Staples.

Next up we have a mini album from Design Team Member  Lydia Jackson.  Lydia created this mini as a gift for a friend. What better way to share the Graphic 45 love than with the most important people in our lives?  It is the perfect way to preserve those memories.

There is that cool Door Knob from the Graphic 45 Staples collection. And the Graphic 45 Core Impressions Timeless Collection is, well, TIMELESS! It goes with so many different colors and we just love how Lydia paired it with the blue.

Of our Graphic45 blog Swap. Have been over to the Graphic45 Blog  yet???  They have some amazing creations from their Design Team and I know they are giving away some goodies, too!

Today’s theme revolves around Houndstooth. We love it here! Can you tell from these layouts? Just another reason the Core Impressions Graphic 45 Timeless Collection should be a staple in your scrabpooking supplies. AND it isn’t too late to add it to your Christmas Wish List.

First up today we have layout from Lydia Jackson that is so festive!   How cute is the title in the shape of a Christmas Tree?

Next up we have another Christmas themed layout from Debbie Standard featuring some gorgeous stitching and other fabulous Graphic 45  details.

And Paula Gilarde used her Graphi45 for a Fall layout. Check out how she layered the Graphi45 tags and her title!

And another Fall layout from Melissa Oliveira.  The versatility of the Graphic 45 lines are so great!

Have a GREAT day! ONE more day tomorrow of some fabulous Graphic 45 and Core’dinations Projects.

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!
