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!

Graphic 45 Take Two!

Yes, yes. We are on to day TWO of our blog swap with Graphic 45 and I don’t know about you but we are having FUN! Make sure you check our their blog and the cool Graphic 45 Core Impression line from Core’dinations.

Don’t forget to leave a comment to win some of our FABULOUS cardstock!!!!!

So…yesterday we did cards…how about some layouts today???

Here is a layout from Cari Locken.  Cari really lets the cardstock be the standout of this layout. She combined the clock paper and the houndstooth and some striped Onyx cardstock. I love how they contrast each other yet work together to make a cohesive layout. And how cool is that pop of teal???

Next up is a layout from Hera Frei.  Hera used the neutral background with a pop of color, too, this time adding some of the gorgeous Graphic 45 papers!  I bet you are wondering why Hera took a photo of a bus. Well, Hera lives in Switzerland and there aren’t school buses! Everyone lives within walking distance from their schools so when her and her family saw this school bus while vacationing in Canada, she had to snap a photo. Her boys were intrigued by the idea that all the kids can ride together.

And Lydia Jackson worked the Graphic 45 on here! First off, how cool is that photo of her face painting? I love the tone on tone with the pops of orange.

See you tomorrow with more projects!
