  8. This has to be one of your prettiest collections so far ! I absolutely love this and can’t wait until I can order everything. All my creations are made with graphic 45 papers and are always well received as gifts. Using your papers makes me feel like a “paper artist “ !

  9. I love the new Cottage Life collection! You always surprise me with the beauty of each new collection. This is just gorgeous!! Thank you for the chance to win this.

  10. There is not page of this collection that don’t love. The colors are perfect, and I really like the cut aparts, including the postage stamps. Thank you for the sneak peek of this beautiful collection.

  11. Whoa! What wonderful colors! Waiting to pre-order from favorite retailer. So happy that the Couture collection is back as a DCE. If Rare Oddities, Olde Curiosity Shoppe and a Ladies’ Diary are out as DCEs, I’ll be in heaven!!

  12. Cottage Life is just my style. It reminds me of some of the paintings I used to enjoy while visiting The Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC…I would spend 5 days in a row visiting the museum, and enjoying artwork like this…GORGEOUS, GORGEOUS, GORGEOUS.

  13. I love G45 but this collection I will cherish, it transports me back to my childhood, living in an old cottage and how much I would love to be in one now! Working in the garden with my dog for company, crafting in the cottage. Instead it will be creating beautiful gifts from this stunningly exquisite collection. The best one by far for quite a while. Was it designed by someone new to G45? Huge compliments to whoever designed it.

  14. I can’t even hardly wait! Your email is the one that I look so forward too! Your products are the best and I just love that you also have a family biz! It’s 98% amazing and 2% freaking chaos but hey….they are your family! Great job putting out such a top notch, quality product! I think I am addicted to your inks. I open my paper pack and take a big sniff of pure heaven! Great job Team G45!

  15. OOOHHH, the romance of all those soft colours and images take us back to the simpler life. I want to touch all the prints and would love to sit a while, drink tea and maybe even weed in the beautiful garden,

  16. Paper is stunning! I say that each time there is a new release and each time it truly is stunning!
    We all want a cottage life just as charming as this paper! Thank you for a glimpse of spring on this dreary January day!

  17. This is an awesome collection. The stickers, chipboard, and journaling cards are fabulous.
    The ephemera assortment looks so inviting I can hardly wait to order. Cottage Life, I LOVE you!

  18. I’m not usually drawn to pastel colors but these patterns and the graphics are so detailed and beautiful! I can see a wide range of possibilities for projects! Thank you for offering FIFTEEN prize packages this time too. I was encouraged by that to post.

  19. This collection is so soothing in soft pink and blues. Very much needed after these years of turmoil. Glad you brought back the coordinating stamp set. Looking forward to many gentle hours with these lovely papers.

  20. Awesome new collectIon, Cottage Garden.
    I love it, the beautiful soft colors and some of the small prints are great for my cards. Can’t wait to be able to buy it.

  21. Cottage Life! Graphic 45 does not disappoint with this new collection! The ethereal colors, the stunning scenes…this collection puts you in a calm, beautiful place of mind! Love it!

  22. This paper is stunning. A see a mini album for my sister in the future. Graphic 45 makes such beautiful collections. I can’t wait to create with this one.

  23. I love Cottage themed books, household items, fabric and now gorgeous paper! This is the best. I can’t wait to get this collection. I can think of so many albums and cards to make with it. Love this!

  24. My Goodness! This is one of my favorite collections ever. I can see I’m going to need at least one of everything. I see a decorated wooden cottage, a small book and lots of cards in my future. Thank you G45 for this wonderful collection. Would love to win!

  25. Cottage Life is GORGEOUS!!! Can’t wait until we can order it–but of course winning it would be better…LOL I want to thank you for the quality you put into everything you make. The colors are always so vibrant. It appears that some of your ink colors will blend beautifully with this new line also.

  26. Oh my word, what an amazing collection this is, so beautiful, I live in a 250 year old cottage and this collection would make the most lovely additions to my home. Thank you for this collection Graphic45 xx

  27. I cannot wait to get my hands on Cottage Life. It’s so beautiful and has quotes from some of my favorite authors. I grew up on the museum land where one of the Alcott houses is and Henry David Thoreau spent time. I’m so excited.

  28. While I love G45 papers, I’m on the fence about this one. It is a lovely collection, but it’s not calling to me, except the page with the violets. This might change after I see a couple of projects made with it, it’s happened before. I do see me buying the Patterns and Solids pad. It looks like the colors would work some earlier designs (Penny’s paper dolls come to mind, maybe Come Away With Me, too).

  29. Stunning, this collection will be perfect for a Journal/album I am planning on creating for a lifelong friend (63 years, we met in kindergarten) .
    It is peaceful, tranquil and not to mention her favorite colors and style.
    She had a truly horrible 2021, this will be comforting and inspirational for 2022.
    I LOVE IT , I know she will too.

  30. This is by far my favorite G45 collection yet! I can hardly wait to get my hands on it to start creating beautiful cards or perhaps a planner…maybe both. Although the paper is almost too pretty to cut up.

  31. Really lovely colors and graphics in Cottage Life! So easy to get lost in the beauty and imagine all of the things I could create. Thank you for producing another superb collection!

  32. Oh my goodness! The wonderful colors and subject of this collection are truly beautiful. It would make a lovely Mother’s Day project, but I’m not sure I would be able to part with this paper to make a project for someone else. I would have to finally treat myself to a beautiful journal or album with it.

  33. Lovely designs.
    Suggestion Please make a new collection Without Any pink or coral colors! Purples, with blues, greens, oranges, reds, and yellows would be great!

  34. This new collection of Cottage Life is extraordinary. The subtle color palette is especially beautiful. I know this will be a favorite in my upcoming projects for cards and albums, but then Graphic 45 has always had my heart with their exquisite designs and inspiring collections. This collection brings back so many happy memories of trips to the English countryside. Thanks G45 for making happy thoughts dance through my mind today.

  35. With it’s soft pinks, periwinkle and mossy greens, Cottage Life is a new favorite! I love it and can’t wait until it’s available for purchase. Beautiful collection!

  36. As soon as I saw this collection, I had to 1) squeal; 2) share the preview with scrapbook friends; and 3) keep coming back to look. This is definitely on my Must Buy list!

  37. The artistry of Cottage Life is absolutely stunning!!! Cottage decor is my favorite and the designers have hit the ball out of the park. My mind is already busy creating ways to use this gorgeous paper!!

  38. I sooooooooooo want to live in these papers!! Beautiful images. I live in a rural community and many of us garden. Would love to make cards with this lovely new collection! <3
