Dreamcatchers with Graphic 45

As a child my stepmother taught me how to make dream catchers! I just LOVED the idea of them! And after seeing these again recently, I was so inspired to try them again….. 20 years later! But this time with a Graphic 45 twist!!!! These were very fun and therapeutic! Once I created one, I couldn’t stop! I did different themes, all G45 inspired! My 2 personal faves are the one with the mask and the one with the wings :) Those wings were  a labor of love! You can recreate them just printing out a template off the internet and cutting your G45 papers to fit! Time consuming, but so worth it!

Mother Goose Pocket Card for Graphic 45

Hi all!!!! Back again with another G45 share! My fave shares :) I rarely create cards! Only for Christmas time usually. But when a coworker had a passing in the family, I wanted to make something we could all sign for her. This is what I ame up with. The inside holds big G45 Staple Envelopes, that are folded in half with a ribbon closure. That way we could all write our messgaes without it being messy, or running out of room.
Hope you like it! Check out the Graphic 45 Blog for more pix and Maria's stunning layout!
