I love the Cottage papers!! So pretty.
This is such a charming collection! Beautiful!!
Absolutely BEAUTIFUL collection! It is definitely a must-have for me!!
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.
Very beautiful!! I will be buying this paper collection! I love the soft colors!
Very pretty! I will be buying this collection. I love G45 papers and use them almost exclusively in my card making!
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.
Very excited about this collection!! It is so beautiful!
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!
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,
I just am amazed by the prints, colors and designs. Can’t wait for the release.
I will be adding this to my stash. Beautiful paper!
Just like a spending a lovely day in the Cotswold!
This collection is beyond gorgeous!!!
Need to have this collection!
The flowers are beautiful and love the shade of the blues and greens!
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!
Gorgeous new collection! I love the feminine colors, designs, and patterns. So beautiful for special projects!

Some of these papers take me back to the wallpaper in my Grandmother’s home. They are beautiful.

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.
Beautiful. Soothing! Stunning! Love it!
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.
Oh my! This is another stunning collection. I’m drooling – and cannot wait until its available for purchase.
I’m in love with Cottage Life!!
Awesome new collectIon, Cottage Garden.

Such pretty colours, definitely reminiscent of an English Cottage Garden!

I love all the pretty pastel colors of the Cottage Life collection!

Beautiful collection !! I love it !! Can’t wait to see the rest of the collections !!
What an absolutely gorgeous paper collection! Love the florals and soft colors and excited to see the coordinating stamps!
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!
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.
Cottage Life is such an adorable collection. Perfect for spring layouts and cards. Would love to win this collection!
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
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.
This one is absolutely lovely! Another must have for me!
Such beautiful soft pastels. Perfect timing for this sweet collection.
What a beautiful collection! Love the pastel colors! Thanks for the chance to win G45!
These are so gorgeous! I love the theme and color scheme!
This collection is a must have! It is lovely and perfect for spring.
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).
And you have added stamps! Gorgeous paper and embellishments.
This design is SO up my alley! I just love the colors and designs!
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.
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.
G45’s Cottage Life is like a breath of sweet air on a sun-filled day! And, the variety of the collection makes it quite versatile. Love it!
Can’t wait to start using these to make cards for my friends and family. They love receiving G45 Cards!
Oh wauwie!! Totally love this collection.
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!
Can’t wait for this paper to come out it is so beautiful
I look forward to all the sneak peeks…then I wish my life away so that we can get the paper collections faster! LOL
Beautiful collection…LOVE the colors!!
This collection is so lovely! I would love to use it to make adorable mini albums!
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.
Lovely collection. Nice pastel tones. So much you can do with it.
Suggestion Please make a new collection Without Any pink or coral colors! Purples, with blues, greens, oranges, reds, and yellows would be great!
Gorgeous!! Love the colours. Roses are my birth so this paper is “made for me”. Can’t wait!!!
I’ve been waiting for a collection like this for a long time. Can’t wait to get my hands on it.
This is so pretty!
This collection will be perfect for making an album about one of the branches of my family tree!
Love this collection! The colors and sentiments are perfect!
I think it would be fantastically lovely to live in a cottage just like this!
Beautiful collection! I love the Sweet Rambles paper and the pretty cut-apart images
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.
This collection has such a soothing color scheme and beautiful designs
Beautiful collection. I can’t wait to create something from this one!

Be still my heart! This is the collection I’ve been waiting for “my whole life”!
So beautiful! I just want to curl up in those pictures with a drink and a good book! I would make a book journal! How fun! 😍
