#SimplyG45 – Quick & Easy Cards

Hello, G45ers!

 Welcome to a fun #SimplyG45 Card Set blog post!  Today, Pam Bray shares with us her step by step directions to Quick & Easy Cards using our Raining Cats & DogsDeluxe Collector’s Edition.  This collection is sold-out, but luckily for you, we have 9 other DCSs to choose from when recreating these handmade cards.  To go along with these great card tutorials, today we also launch our Club G45 – Volume 4 edition.  These kits will be up for grabs at 11 am PST to, April 12, 2018.  At this time we will also post three new tutorials on YouTube so you can follow along at home.  Be sure to tune in.  


Club G45 – Vol 4. has sold out online.

Check your local G45 retailer for kits!  


Vol. 4 – Includes step by step, full-color directions for a Humming Bird Box, Easel Card Set and a Botanical Butterflies Waterfall Album.  These three projects showcase this shabby chic collection perfectly and offer oodles of tips and techniques throughout.  Vol 4. project by Annette Green. 

  Auto-subscribers do not need to order again. Your kits will be processed and shipped as quickly as possible.  With the success of Club G45, we have added additional kits for Volume 4, however, due to limited inventory, those will sell-out quickly so be sure to act fast.  We will be adding substantially more kits for Vol. 5, so if you are unable to get one of these kits, please be patient. We are doing our best to meet the demand.  We thank you for your enthusiastic support of this program and look forward to seeing your creations. #ClubG45
