These are just lovely. And Floral Shop is the perfect collection for them. All your collections are wonderful but Floral Shoppe is my favorite so far with Nature''s Sketchbook being my 2nd favorite.

These are so very pretty and what a perfect collection to use for them. I can remember years ago when I used to make handmade pins. Even the hubby has made some. They are so much fun.

Floral Shoppe is, hands down, my favorite G45 Collection. Nichola has hit it spot on with her gilded pins. One can never have too much bling. The silver and gold really compliment the papers. Really looking forward to making the 3 cards from the project sheet.

I'm always attracted to gilding. the project above is certainly one I can see on packages, albums and dangling from a light. It is a little treasure someone will cherish. Very nicely done especially when you ventured out of your comfort zone.

These papers are exquisite just like the others but can be used for so much more by (oh my gosh should I say it out loud) cutting into them lol. Dx
