  1. I’m so Excited!! Yall are bringing back Nutcracker Sweet !! I had this back when it was first released, and it has always been my favorite Christmas collection. I loved the Nutcracker movie when I was a kid, and I still watch every Christmas. I’m still hoarding my leftover scraps, so I’m super excited to get my hands on this one again. Thank you all at G45 for bringing so much happiness to all of us. Yall are the Best!! 🙂

  2. I have been waiting for this. My friend had some and I fell in love with it but couldn’t find it. I am so excited to finally be able to get this!!!!

  3. Happy to see this festive collection coming back again!! Love the images of Christmas. The stickers are really well designed to compliment the designer papers…nice!

  4. I am so very happy you brought back Nutcracker Sweet in the deluxe collectors edition. As a kid I really didn’t like nutcrackers, I always thought they looked mean and scary, but now I love them. I even have a 4 foot one on my porch during the holidays. You can bet I will be making a scrapbook album with this beautiful paper! Thank you for the return of Nutcracker Sweet. 😁

  5. Wait a second!! Nutcracker Sweet will be available as a DCE and there will be an 8×8?? That’s awesome!! I’ve been waiting, watching, and hoping Nutcracker would be re-released because I wasn’t a paper crafter when this collection was first released. Can hardly wait!!

  6. It’s always a dream come true for children to attend the Nutcracker Suite ballet—certainly here in San Francisco where it originated. It would be totally amazing to make a special book for a child with this incredible new collection of Graphic 45 Nutcracker Sweet papers! It would become a lifelong keepsake to remember the ethereal Nutcracker Ballet. This would truly be the perfect gift for a child!

  7. The Nutcracker has always been an important aspect of the Christmas season. I remember taking my younger daughter to the ballet and it started a lifelong love of the Nutcracker. This would be a special project for her!

  8. Hi there,
    I have recently discovered Grahic 45.
    I am blown away with the stunningly beautiful and creative designs offered !
    I have several collections now, I am finding collections that are no longer available that I would love to have.
    I wonder does Graphic 45 ever bring them back?
    Is there any way to purchase them?
    Thanks for any info…

    1. Hello Kathleen, we are thrilled that you have discovered Graphic 45! Fortunately, we do bring back old retired collections, that is what our Deluxe Collector’s Editions are all about. Each DCE consists 24 double sided sheets, two cardstock sticker sheets and dimensional chipboard. Thanks for your feedback and Happy Papercrafting!

  9. I am so happy you are re-releasing the Nutcracker line. I just love it. Especially happy to also be able to get the 8×8. Perfect. Thank you.

  10. What a great new collection. I have seen The Nutcracker ballet performed many times so this will bring back great memories. Thanks so much for a chance to win such an amazing prize. Cheers.

  11. The Clara ‘s Dream paper kinda matches the polar bear paper in the “Let It Snow” collection. Were there any polar bears in the ballet? Maybe sneak that paper in with the dancing mice?!

  12. The Nutcracker is the only ballet I’ve ever seen, so love the nostalgia of this collection. The colors are gorgeous and the designs are timeless.

  13. I’m over the moon to see this year’s Nutcracker Sweet collection! The Christmas holidays just would not be complete without the pageantry of the Nutcracker and ballerinas. This collection has all of the yummy apple and plum colors I adore. I can’t wait to get this on my craft table!

  14. Another beautiful collection from Graphic 45, which is perfect for Christmas. I love the combination of traditional holiday colors mixed with the purple and pinks of the ballet. Thanks for offering double sided papers that make each collection even easier to use.

  15. Hello and what a collection the newNutcracker Sweet is, it warms the soul with its vibrant, lively colors, can’t wait till September, ideas are running thru my head, like super plums, seriously you have out done yourselves this time. Graphic 45 is such a class act all the way around.

  16. Beautiful. Love the motifs and mad about nutcrackers, plum fairies and gingerbread men. Great variety of everything including all the hues used. Yes I would love to win this fabulous collection. Thank you very much for the chance to. xxx

  17. You won’t believe how incredible happy I am to see this as a Deluxe Colletion Edition. I missed this the first time around so now I’m going to hoard these papers like a mad woman 😀 Thank you for hearing my silent prayers <3

  18. Thought I would never see it again! As a child I danced in the Nutcracker ballet. I have very fond memories of that experience. Now your collection gives me one more way of celebrating that time. This collection is one of my favs, right up there with 12 Days. Hope my luck holds out and I hear from you!
