What an excellent idea! I always make 5 desk top calendars as Christmas Gifts...the Garden Goddess Package would be perfect for this project. Thanks G45 for all the wonderful inspiration!!

Marion Symonds:
11/06/2018, 01:04:49 PM

Not one, but TWO more beautiful and inspirational creations from hugely talented Yumi. These are two of my all-time favourite Graphic 45 collections! There again, whenever I get to thinking that way another group appear and I'm ooo-ing and aah-ing all over again. Guess it will always be impossible to choose ONE favourite when every contender is near-perfect? Thank you for all the pleasure your company provides. Marion in the UK.

I love to mix and match! I mean, we can’t possibly part with our G45 leftovers from previous projects. That would be a crime LOL!

Holly Hatch:
11/06/2018, 01:47:29 PM

All three of your new lines are beautiful (to include the Gentleman line). It is wonderful how the colors all mix and match so lovely. It would be great to win the package. Thank you, G45 for all the ideas.

These are just wonderful to have! I love my day timers and I couldn't be without them. Thank you for the tutorials Yumi.

11/06/2018, 02:12:20 PM

I agree with today’s post. One of the (many) positive attributes of G45 is that there is the ability to draw from different collections for complementary papers & embellishments.

Love, love the planners! Thank you for sharing!

11/06/2018, 08:59:28 PM

I enjoy seeing all the talent, and inspiration from all of the G45 artist's. I appreciate when they think out of the box. I'm a long time scrapbooker, and have been mixing paper collections from all companies for years, and always pear at other's before deciding what I want to do with mine.Just a suggestion, and challenge of what I would like to plausibly see mixed. I was thinking Floral Shoppe, Nan Flutter together. I was also thinking the four feminine collections would be interesting on how they could be mixed (Garden Goddess, Fairie Dust, Imagine, and Princess.).

Nancey Thomson:
11/06/2018, 09:15:28 PM

These would make excellent stocking stuffers, awesome way to use up your scraps of paper

Kirsty Vittetoe:

This is amazing! I love G45!!!!
