Hello, G45ers!

3 Christmas Magic Project Ideas

By Ginger Ropp


“The imagery in the new Christmas Magic collection is adorable! Use the cut-a-parts and ephemera cards to create quick and easy cards in a snap. Finish the inside of the cards with some simple layering to add a more detailed look.  Small little embellishments like jingle bells are a fun added touch. You can use a clear shimmer pen to add just a little sparkle.” ~Ginger



G45 Christmas Magic Project by Ginger Ropp



Christmas Magic Boxed Card Set




#G45Tip: Keep it simple and classy.  Let the Cut-a-Parts and Ephemera Cards do the heavy lifting, just add a doily and a pattern paper and you are good to go!


G45Tip: Use the border pages to add a simple decoration to envelopes.


Christmas Magic Wrap Journal


#G45Tip: Create a handmade journal with your leftover scraps and keep notes for the holiday season ahead.  







#G45Tip: Graphic 45 Patterns & Solids Paper Pads can be used with other collections in a variety of projects.  Note, the green cardstock above is from our Little Women Patterns & Solids Paper Pad.

Christmas Magic Accordion Album


#G45Tip: Add jingle bells to the ends of your ribbon for an extra fun holiday look.
