  1. Let the summer fun begin with this wonderful, fantastic collection of papers! Stunning and nostalgic all at the same time. Making them timeless!

  2. I still have a few pages of this collection. So sweet to see it coming back. The sticker page looks great. I don’t recall having those styles in the original set.

  3. How fun to see this one come out again! And the Enchanted Forest collection! I am eager to be a winner and use all of these lovely papers for new projects!

  4. The new collections are amazing.
    PS:I Love you will make perfect Wedding Cards and Anniversary Cards
    Fun in the Sun will make great vacation scrapbook pages.
    Make a Splash with its stunning colors would make a perfect tag album.
    I am ordering all three collections..

  5. Sun Kissed is gorgeous! I would so love to have this – we are taking our grandkids to Martha’s Vineyard for the first time this year! What a gorgeous album this would make of our adventures there!!

  6. I missed out on buying Sun Kissed the first time around, so I am really thrilled it is going to be back soon!

    I LOVE the vintage vibe of this collection, and it will be perfect to use for documenting some of my sailing adventures! I spent a lot of time cruising around Santa Catalina Island, and the vintage-y feel of this collection would really complement the Catalina Island pics I have to scrap.

    I was cruising aboard a historic vintage wooden sailboat from the 1930s. Beyond that, many of the photos I have are pics of vintage tilework on the fountains and public art from around the city of Avalon. Avalon is one of the most charming cities I have ever visited. The papers I use for this project will have to be equally charming, and these are just delightful!

    re “what will you be creating with this collection?” This collection is so cute and versatile — I could see using it for so many projects.

    I’d be likeliest to use the 8×8 pad for making 6×8 pocket pages. There’s also a possibility that I would buy multiples of a couple of the 12″x12″ papers — For example, I’d be able to use multiples of the 12×12 “Sail Away”, “Turtle Time” and “Sand Dollar” papers, each cut down to 2 6×8 pieces plus leftovers of 4×6 pieces that could also be used for pocket pages.

    The leftover scraps would make super cute cards and bits to use for decorating my planner pages. When I buy G45 papers, I do not let even a single scrap go to waste! <3 <3 <3

  7. Yay!🎉 Sun Kissed is back!☀️ This is the perfect collection to scrapbook our summer trips to the beach!🏖The combination of bright yellow, corals and blues color palette always makes me smile!😃 I would definitely love to win this collection!🤩 Thank you G45!🥰🙌🏽

  8. So very excited that Sun Kissed has been brought back! Can’t wait to make a mini album with it featuring my Maui adventures! And, of course, so grateful that the stickers are available again – love these stickers!

  9. This is such a lovely collection orange is not a color that I normally use but sometimes you have to think outside your comfortzone to create something amazing right?? Thank you Graphic 45 for the chance to win this xox Amy

  10. Can’t wait for Sun Kissed! I’ve been waiting to create mini albums for a family vacation (which is the first one with all my bothers and their family since our parents passed). This will is so perfect! Can’t wait to get it!

    Oh the Sun Kissed collection just puts a smile on my face. It is such a happy collection that I would love to make mini albums with. The corals and blues are so pretty together.

  12. I agree…Sun Kissed is one of my most favorite G45 paper collections! LOVE the turtles and those gorgeous yellow flowers!. Beautiful! And the sticker collection is wonderful! YES! Can’t wait to add more of this collection to my card making inventory!

  13. I thought Make a Splash was stunning and a favorite, but now I have changed my mind. I love this collection with the corals. Perfect for creating decor for my Beash themed rooms.

  14. These summery images are so pretty, and so appropriate for summer projects. I LOVE the images and the color combinations.

  15. I’ve had Sun-Kissed before. Love all the shades of blue and shades of coral. These complimentary colors are to die for! So glad it is back. Thank you for returning it.

Now I can complete my UFO’s I started’ I needed more stickers for the cards I was making and for the straws in the bottles for my party decorations !! My Banner is adorable I may share of April project challenge ! Thank you G45 love it !!

  17. The beach is my happy place and Sun Kissed definitely expresses my feelings. This will be great to have some reminders of summer with a Sun Kissed Journal on my desk. Thanks. Love all the papers.

  18. oh this is such a beautiful collection! I always have enough paper to make multiple projects even out of one 8×8 pad. they just seem to go on & on & I LOVE that!! thank you G45!!

  19. Is this a previously sold paper set? I had one VERY similar to this that I made junk journals and cards with back in early 2020. I loved it then and love it now. The beach is one of my favorite places and themes!

  20. Another beautiful collection to scrap beach photos..which one to choose ??!! Love the colors…have many family outings from the 1940’s to scrap and have been waiting for the right collection to enhance these photographs which have been in a box for years! Living on the coast, there are many photos, and the colors, die cuts and ephemera will lend themselves to some gorgeous pages…thank you for a beautiful collection…can’t wait to get started and pass this scrapbook to future generations.

  21. So happy that Sun Kissed is back – love the colors and images! Will make really beautiful mini albums and layouts! One of my favorite collections!!

  22. I happy you brought “sun kissed collection” back. It’s always been one of my favorites. I like it so much I was hoarding mine and trying not to use it, now I can! Thank you G45. ❤️

  23. My daughter and her family are foster parents and she always makes each child she takes into her home a memory album. Most collections don’t have people of different races, and this one does. This beautiful collection would be awesome as a memory album for the baby girl they are fostering for last six months.

  24. I missed this the first time it was released and so glad you are bringing it out again. It is such a versatile collection with a timeless appeal . It is perfect to make gifts for all age groups and no wonder it was a hit…it can be used to make all styles of projects from cards to layouts, albums, home decor pieces and ahem just simply framed on the wall!!

  25. Sun Kissed reminds me of warm summer peaches and beautiful Mediterranean waters! These colors and designs are so perfect for summer memories. Sheer perfection!! Must have! 🪸🛟🏄🏼

  26. I love a comeback and this collection is wonderful! I love the vintage beach themes, patterns, and colors this collection offers for special summer projects. Thank you for bringing back our favorites!

  27. Beginning with the name, Sun Kissed, then scrolling through and looking at the designs, the colors, the art of it all in every aspect….Love this!

  28. Love this Sun Kissed collection…… Love the beauty of the coastal scenery, and how you added the little girls as a special touch. Beautiful colors, and those turtles …. NICE ….
