Hello, G45ers!

Katelyn has also included a Snapguide tutorial to help you get started on your own. Check it all out below, but first a word about our weekly blog contest and Club G45. 


Weekly Blog Contest

Just leave a comment here on the blog, Instagram, and/or  Facebook to be entered to win! This week’s prize package includes a (SOLD-OUT) Club G45 Vol 1. Includes Fairie Dust 8x8 Paper Pad, Chipboard, Die-cut Tags & Pockets, Ephemera Cards, Staples Ivory Book Box, 2 packs of Ivory Artist Trading Cards, Shabby Chic Metal Door Plates and Knobs, along with a project sheet and G45 poly bag.  


Announcing Club G45

Earlier this month in our newsletter we announced our first ever kit club for 2018, Club G45!  This took off faster and with more enthusiasm than we had ever dreamed of.  All of Volume 1 kits sold out in less than three hours.  As thrilled as we were with the popularity, we wish we could have been more prepared to meet the needs of our G45ers. We are adding as many additional kits as possible for Volume 2, and will continue to increase availability with future volumes in hopes that we can meet the demand.  

Fortunately, we are still able to offer the project sheet and YouTube video tutorials to everyone.  You can swap out the sold-out Fairie Dust 8x8's for the 12x12 collection pack and still create a stunning project, or try using another one of our paper collections.  Below you will find all the info for our new program including a FAQsection below.

Dream Scrapbook Layout
by Katelyn Grosart


Hey G45 Fans! Happy New Year! One of my New Year’s resolutions for this year is to push myself to create more scrapbook layouts. So I figured, why not start the year by creating one featuring the new and beautiful Fairie Dust collection. This layout was created for one of our family photos taken on our Alaskan cruise in 2015. You can easily change the theme of it and use any photos. You’ll want to grab a cup of your favourite beverage and enjoy the photos and tutorial of my Dream Scrapbook Layout.”



Tip: Add a bit of stenciling in behind your fussy cut images. Although you may not see a lot of the stenciled image, having a bit peek out amongst your fussy cut images adds some more dimension.



Tip: Mix elements from the Ephemera cards as well as the Tags & Pockets into your fussy cut images.



Tip: Add some metal elements for some extra interest in amongst the flowers.



Tip: From the Decorative Stickers, adhere a photo corner into the lighter embellished corner.

I love the idea of the G45 club!!

Henderson Elizabeth Dr joy is a trust worthy spell caster and he will be of great help to you. I never believed in spell casting but After 4 years of marriage my husband left me because I lost my womb, and i was unable to give birth to children. I felt like my life has come to an end, and i almost committed suicide, i was emotionally down for a very long time, but thanks to this spell caster called Dr joy whom i met online after my friend Becky Ross told me how he also helped her to bring back her husband in less than 2 days. I believed her and decided to give Dr joy a try and i contacted him on his email and explained my problems to him. He laughed and told me that In less than 2 days, my Husband will come back to me again, and that he will restore my womb and i will give birth to children. At first i thought it was a joke but i took courage and believed as Dr joy has said and it did happen just as this Great spell caster said, My husband called me and was crying, begging for forgiveness. I forgive him and today i am so glad that all worries and problems has gone away, and we are even happier than before, another good news is that i am pregnant now, and very soon we will have our baby. Dr joy is really a gifted and a powerful spiritual man and i will not stop publishing him because he is a wonderful man. I advice you all If you have a problem and you are looking for a real and genuine spell caster to solve all your problems just Contact Dr joy on his email on because he will always help you to solve all problems. Once again thank you Dr joy. Thank you, thank you. you can also call him or add him on Whats-app: +2347088404185.
