Have I told you how much I love creating with Graphic 45 collections? With their beautiful and vibrant colors and clever patterns, these collections will have you making stunning crafts. And if you like to make crafting easier, or like me, you want to learn a new crafting technique, then you need to check out the Club Kits. They'll give you the best Graphic 45 project ideas.
Lost in Paradise Travel Planner
We are going to start today with the Lost in Paradise Travel Album w/ Notebook Club Kit. These kits come with almost everything you need to create these projects, and they also include easy-to-follow, detailed instructions. For my project, I wanted a different cover then they directed, so I just switched the cards. Note that if you do make a switch, you will likely be using an element from another page and you will have to swap that one as well.
In this kit, there are several ephemera cards and stickers left over so you can decorate other pages and add extra embellishments throughout the Travel Album, as you see fit.
This kit allows you to also create a super easy and fun notebook (the green cover with the toucan on it) that really stands out. If you love this kit, I suggest you grab one soon because they are selling quickly. There is no telling how long they will be available. Check out the rest of the Lost in Paradise collection.
Joy to the World 3D Book Box
In this case, I took a Graphic 45 class a couple of months ago and made an awesome book box with the Joy to the World collection. However, it is not the same one you will make with the Joy to the World 3D Book Box & Card Trio Kit, but my project will give you a good idea of what it's like. Using the kit will give you similar results with a little more convenience.
Bonus Recipe Book
A project I did create using the Club Kit is a delightful, holiday-themed recipe book. Christmastime is always filled with delicious food and treats. What a great way to save those favorite family recipes!
Each of the recipe cards is 4" x 6" on plain white paper, and then I added lines every .25". The background pages have 5" x 7" dimensions. I also added some of the Joy to the World Chipboard pieces to add some fun design elements to the page.
