1st Design Challenge of the Year

The new year is here and we are happy to have the first post from our Design Team. This week we are featuring the Tropical Travelogue Collection from Graphic 45. The paper is vibrant in aqua, greens, oranges and just the right balance of coral and beige.

Paper Vineyard has the entire collection including the stamps. There is a lot of images of Hawaii embedded into the beautiful patterned papers.

Pam made a layout that showcases the images of the paper with a pop of color through bling, ribbon and journaling. The frame over the photo is a wonderful technique.

Next is a card that includes the paper, cardstock, small piece of ribbon, flowers and a brad. Very easy! This paper is so pretty it makes the card all by itself.

Hope this spring boards some ideas for your water vacation photos. Paradise is a wonderful thing to craft about!


  1. That whole Tropical Travelogue collection is so beautiful!

  2. Great ideas using another fabulous Graphic 45 paper. I'm inspired by the prospect of picking up a sheet or two for myself .
