Whop Whop let the weekend begin. It's going to be chilly round these parts. Definitely gone colder over the last couple of days but we still haven't got the heating on full time. Amazing considering its January ..... great for the heating bills lol!!!
I've been beavering away this week making my new 'Year in Pictures' album from the Children's Hour paper calendar collection. Its all about your favourite photo for each month of the year. You may have been thinking this collection is just to make children themed projects but it's really not, as you'll see when the video for the album goes live on 13th Jan over on my You Tube Channel. The great thing about the papers is they all go with previous Graphic 45 collections so if you , like me have a secret stash of G45 papers you can make a uniquely themed project, and get to use up some of those papers we all seem keep but never use. Go on..... cut into them .................... you'll definitely make something gorgeous.
With CHA nearly upon us over on the US it's exciting to see A Ladies Diary and Le Communique collections making their comeback as Deluxe Collectors editions on the Graphic 45 stand. If you're a new G45er you may not have seen these collections. Communique was the second one I bought and crafted with five years ago - love love love it and A Ladies Diary was one of the first collections I used when I joined the G45 Design Team. They are very distinctly different but totally vintage. Both are available to pre-order in our shop and we'll be crafting with them both at My June Retreat on 8th/19th June.New Workshop and Retreat Dates for 2016
