Happy 4th of July, to all you American G45ers with us today, and to those of you reading from outside the US, thanks for coming along as we celebrate the holiday, Graphic 45 style. We have a special surprise, All-American Alpha Banner for you by the amazing Annette Green, featuring French Country – DCE. She also includes a SnapGuide to help you make your own. Don't worry, we also have something for everyone as well, with a Lena & Nico Voyage Beneath the Sea double feature. First up, Lena Astafeva shares a terrific stamp tutorial. After that, Nico Scrap shares his creative canvas. We hope that you can enjoy these three gorgeous projects, no matter where you are today.
America Alpha Banner
By Annette Green
"A patriotic banner using Graphic 45's French Country collection? Sure, why not. I've got a fun and easy tutorial today in Snapguide, just in time for the 4th of July. This banner will stay up throughout the Summer in our home, from Memorial Day through Labor Day. Here's the tutorial below. I hope you have a moment to check it out. Happy 4th to my fellow Americans!" ~Annette Green

Princess Mermaid Canvas
By Nico Scrap
“Take me down into the dark deep sea where it’s just you and me.” That’s the quote I thought about when I was making this layout. I’ve imagined this mermaid as a princess in love with a humble human man, and she’s waiting to take him down into the dark deep sea to live his life in love with her forever.” ~Nico Scrap
