Beautiful tag. I love the Fairie Dust collection. The colors are just so beautiful. I purchased the collection but I just hate to cut it.

Michele Lewis:

I love this tag! I especially like how the fussy cutting is popped up by curling the paper! Thank you for that tip! The prize package is to die for! I have never used the Decades inks before and there are no retailers close to me who carry Graphic 45 products!! (maybe I will have to open my own craft store so I can carry them!!) I would definitely LOVE to win these inkpads!!!!

What a gorgeous tag! I love how you made the lines with Glossy Accents and then covered them with glitter - I'll be trying that today! And It's funny that this week's giveaway is the set of inks - I was just eyeing them when they appeared on Friday's blog. How wonderful to have inks that coordinate with G45!

I've recently purchased the Fairie Dust collection and everyone (and I mean everyone) is getting their birthday cards made from the collection. It's so versatile and the colours are beautiful. The ink collection would be a great add to my craft room.

Beautiful tags and color combinations. I have never used the graphic 45 inks, as matter of fact, I didn't know that Graphic 45 had their own line of colors.

Jill McAuley:
04/23/2018, 10:40:18 PM

I so look forward to the Graphic45 daily inspiration in my email...these tutorials are already a gift to us all. I may not be recreating that day's project, but instead incorporating a demonstrated tip or trick into what I am currently working on. I will add the curled paper idea to some cards I am making with "Safari".

Sharon Clabaugh:
