March Challenge with Our Sponsor Graphic 45!

Happy Monday!  Happy March!

It's time for a new challenge bloggers.

Graphic 45 is generously sponsoring this month's challenge with an awesome prize package which includes, a Topical Travelogue 12x12 paper pad, Tropical Travelogue stickers and alphabet stickers, our Kraft Envelope Mini Album, and a Graphic 45 limited edition button.  Can anyone say "yum, yum?" 


I've been in love with Graphic 45's vintage inspired collections since their first releases.  Diane Schultz's designs amaze me and this winter's release of their newest collections are incredible. 

The Challenge
There is a wealth of inspiration, techniques, tutorial, free project sheets, YouTube videos, and more on Graphic 45's Blog.

From Graphic 45's blog find a tag, a card, a layout, or an altered item and create a project inspired by their projects.  You do not need to "lift" the whole project, but find aspects of a project you want to incorporate in your project.

Create your project.

Post it on your blog or online gallery and leave a link in the comments of this post.
  • One entry per person for the month of March.  
  • Leave a comment on this post with a link to your project.
  • All projects must be linked by March 31st at 12, midnight, PST. 
  • The winner will be chosen via Random.org.  
  • You do not have to use Graphic 45 products although I would love to see what you do with G45's paper collections.  
  • Make sure to give credit to the original designer.

My Take
I really am taken aback in awe by designer Yuko Hino.  The element I like most is the strip/tag with the eyelets as a border.

The photo is of Little Honey on her 1st birthday.  She is fascinated by the fun house mirror. 

The paper is from Graphic 45's Curtain Call.  The "1" is Tim Holtz's grungeboard as well as his filmstrip ribbon.  The round letters are from Graphic 45 and "mirror" is from America Crafts.  The flower and bling are from Prima.

I can't wait to see what you create!

Have a Crafty Day!






Gratitude List
1.  a wonderful time with Little Honey and her friends
2.  Rosemary and Michael
3.  Jacob's humor
4.  God's protection for my family
5.  God's pursuit in love and grace

  16. Hi, thanks for the great contest. I have used the Romantique line of papers from Graphic45 for my project. I love using Graphic45 papers for all my altered projects. My inspriation was a box using this paper, however, any project I complete will never hold a candle to the wonderful projects on the Graphic45 blog.
    Here is a link to my altered jewelry box

  23. Fun Challenge!!! My inspiration for this was a Little Darlings shadow box by Jack and Cat Curio. I loved their layered papers and 3-D effects! My project was eventually put in a shadow box too.

  25. My inspiration for my page was Tara Orr's "Wicked". I like the 3-D flowers and the doilies. I was also inspired by Le' Romatique Collection from Graphic 45.
