Graphic 45 Papers

This company has such gorgeous papers.  Their newest selection "A Place in Time" really called out to me.  I HAD to have each and every month.  I decided to try and create a different folded card for each month -- I almost made it.  I came up with 10 different folds.  I'd like to show you what I've created for January, February, April and May (March is at the store - Kept Creations).  These are so addictive once you start on them!  Kim at Kept Creations loved them so we've decided to offer a "Card of the Month" using just these papers.  Here's a sneak peek...

January showing a short "Z" fold and card is banded:

One view opened...

Second view opened.

February with normal "Z" fold:

Inside front view of February:

Outside back view of February (I actually ran out of images to place on this one):

Next is April using a double easel and banded again:

April opened full view with both easels:

April showing the inside of the closest easel:

May using a standard sidestep:

I will take pics of March and June thru December and post them at a later date.  

You have no idea how much fun these were to make.  It's like putting a puzzle together -- you need to plan exactly what pieces you want to place on the card without cutting into another piece that you also want to use.  

Well, I hope you've enjoyed this teaser and I hope we get a lot of sign ups for the Card of the Month at Kept.  I look forward to seeing you all there!

Ciao for now!

Ciao Bella!
