Time to Celebrate!!!

I have had an awesome week here on the blog and I want to celebrate! I think it is time for a giveaway!! (NO April Fool's here!)

Next week on Ustream, we will be making not one, but two projects with Graphic 45 paper...the Fairy House (Once Upon a Springtime) and the Circus Tent (le Cirque). In honor of making the 2011 Design Team for Graphic 45, I'm giving away one of each of the kits! (the rest of the kits and the patterns will be up on my website on Saturday...lots of Mom duty this week has it delayed!)



And there is more... in celebration of heading of to Ranger at the end of April, I am giving away a group of Ranger products so that you can be ready to play along with me when I return!

Here's what you need to do:

Leave a comment with your favorite Graphic 45 paper line AND the Ranger product you want to learn how to use (or the one you love the most!) I will do the drawing tomorrow (Saturday, April 2) at 3pm Pacific Time.

Tonight we will be using punches again to make 3D flowers for seed packet pockets. We will be modifying my Life's a Picnic Mini Album pattern in to a Easter basket. Below is a PDF of the seed packet pocket I designed for this class. I will eventually be making this in to a rubber stamp....but for now, you can click on the photo and then print to 8 1/2" x 11" card stock. Please use this pocket all you want for your personal use... please don't pass it around or use it in classes, etc. The finished pocket will measure 3 1/4" x 4 1/2"



See you all tonight!

Laura

  2. WOW!! Laura congrats on your winning...I knew you would!!! I love all the Graphic 45 papers but I think if I would have to chose, it would be the fairy one. As far as Ranger goes, I love their alcohol inks but would love to learn more about the different ways they can be used. Thank you for the chance to win a prize! Pammy

  3. I love the Once Upon A Springtime collection. So refreshing after all the "winter" colors. Congrats on making the design team....there really wasn't any other choice! I would love to know how to create with the glassine (sp) paper, and the stains look a little intimidating to me. Have a great weekend.

  4. Congradulation Laura you are the best! I have to confess that you and your classes gave me what it took to start scrapbooking again! Thank you so very much... Now my favorite G45 paper has to be "Once Upon a Springtime" and I would love to learn how to use "Distress Stains" Again Congradulation!!!

  5. Congrats again. I look forward to seeing what you will learn at Ranger U. Let's face it, you may be teaching them a thing or two by the time you leave. My favorite Graphic 45 line is Domestic Goddess(it sings to me haha) and I'd really like to learn more about those distress stains and how to combine them with stamping. Thanks for the chance to win a kit.

  6. Congratulations Laura! Frankly I have never used Graphic 45 (believe it or not) but now that you are part of their team I will have to try their papers. I like the Once Upon Springtime paper though. Lots of beautiful work out there with it. Yes I would like to use the "Distress Stains" too. I am sure you will show us the endless possibilities.

  7. Laura, thanks for the awesome giveaway and your projects are stunning!
    My fave Graphic 45 papers are the Steampunk Debutante!! AWESOME!
    And I would love to see more techniques for the new Stains. They look so cool but not sure how to use them.

    Thanks for the fun giveaway!

  8. So hard to choose but the Once Upon a Springtime are my current favorite papers and I so wish I could learn to do more with the UTEE from Ranger...so many artists seem to do so many fun things with it!
    We in Texas are THRILLED for you! So well deserved and not one bit a surprise...
    Such exciting things happening along THE PAPER TRAIL! What a journey!

  9. WOW Laura, very generous! I have been trying to get a kit you put together, but I'm always to late! I love G45 Once Upon A Springtime collections it is so beautiful. I would love to learn more about the alcohol inks and distress stains (I don't have any of either one). I love the look it creates. Thank you ~ Carol

  10. Congrats on making the design team! I knew you would, they are so lucky to have you! How generous of you to do a giveaway!
    My favorite Graphic 45 paper would have to be Curtain Call, I can't help but go crazy with it every time it gets in my hands. And a Ranger product I would love to learn how to use, is the the alcohol inks, (for some reason Joann's won't ship them to me in Hawaii so I've never tried them) but I have no idea what all different things you can do with these inks compared to any others.

  11. The most awesome Graphic 45 product is the Once Upon a Springtime collection - have bought 4 packs of each "thing" as I love this more than anything I have ever seen and will use it up in no time. My granddaughter use to write notes to the fairies that lived in our garden and they answered her - I saved them and will do a special mini for her. I would love to learn more about the new Ranger stains and especially your stained glass idea. Thanks for all you do for us. Mary Werner

  12. Congratulations Laura! I honestly had no doubt that you would be chosen. I'm excited to see what kind of projects you come up with. My favorite Graphic 45 paper line is "On the Boardwalk" and I would like to know more about how to make your own ink pads with the Ranger's Cut & Dry. See you on U-Stream tonight. (I don't participate in the chat. I guess I'm what you call a lurker?)

  13. What talent you have! Congratulations on the new assignment. I love watching your Ustream programs. I like the Graphic 45 Once Upon a Springtime paper and would like to learn more about distress stains from Ranger. Thanks for the giveaway.

  14. Laura, You are so generous with your time and now this. Like I said in the prvious post, we are all winners when you win.

    I love the new Once upon a springtime. I didn't think I did until I saw what you did with this amazing paperline. And I want to learn more about all the Ranger stuff but the new stains really look like interesting. Can't wait until you are back and ready to teach us. It excited me when you had earlier that you were going to be teaching us some techniques once a month and the once a month kit and so on because I love everything you do but have to pick and choose which ones I can afford. It's hard because I WANT THEM ALL.

    Can't wait to see you in class you should be off the walls by then. LOL

  15. Laura,

    I just knew that you would be chosen! Congratulations! My favorite Graphic 45 paper line of all time is Once Upon a Springtime. However, I must admit to owning bits and pieces of all of their lines. The Ranger line I would love to learn more about: the alcohol inks. I don't even own any because I have no idea what to do with them.

  16. You know what I have to say that I also love curtain call by Graphic 45 as well. I was just rewatching the album you did with that paper and its really pretty as well.

    ReplyDelete
  17. My favorite G45 paper is Playtimes Past. It reminds me of happy times in my grandma's attic and all the antique toys she had there to play with. I would like to learn more about using Perfect Pearls. I've taken two classes using them now, and just can't seem to use them effectively. Congratulations, again, and thanks for the fabulous giveaways!

  18. My all time favorite is the Steampunk collection. I would like to learn more about the
    alcohol inks from Ranger.

  20. Laura, Congratulations! You are a wonderful, creative person and Graphic 45 will be blessed to have you! I personally Steampunk Debutante, but Once Upon A SSSpringtime is a very close 2nd! It was hard to choose, they have so many wonderful papers. . .I can't wait till your kit comes up tomorrow! Save me a Fairy House one, cause I love fairies or at least the idea of them!!!! Blessings for a wonderful weekend as well.

  21. Another Woo Hoo on making the team of your choice! Fav G45 is the Botanicabella Collection... as far as the ranger/holtz, so many choices. I guess the glassine paper and alcohol inks. I have my glassine paper pad & just stare at it...lol. Better give Carol & Barrie a heads up on the Ranger products. Once you do a show...we'll all want them :) And how totally cool of you to give us the seed pattern packet. Thank you Laura for all your time and generosity. See you on Ustream...Lori C

  22. Oh my goodness, I forgot to say what ranger product I would like to learn how to use. Again, that is hard as I have many, but I think I would like more ideas on how to use Alcohol inks better. I do a lot of metal work and embossing and would love how to better use them on metal! Thank you so much for asking.

  29. My favorite Graphic45 paper is the Curtain Call collection, because it is neutral and you can add any color to accent and make it pop.
    The Ranger product I would like to learn more about is their new Color Stains, they seem very vibrant and can't wait to get some.

  32. Congratulations Laura, never doubted for a minute that you would not be picked. I love Graphic 45 paper but my absolute favourite is the Once Upon a Springtime its so pretty. All the Ranger products are yummy too and you have done a great job in showcasing on how to use them on your projects. Learning to use Alcohol inks nicely would be great. Maryanne D (Australia)

  33. Congrats on being part of the Design Team. You have to be over the moon.

    My favorite Graphic45 paper is Curtain Call. I like the graphics and all the different embellishments you can use to make it your own unqiue work.

    The Ranger product I'd like to learn more on is Alcohol Inks. I have quite a few of them but just couldn't figure out how to use them to make it look good like I see on other's projects.

  34. The post is by Kim Hoff---my favorite Graphic 45 paper is the Big Top or circus paper. My husband has been a clown for over 20 years and I want to make a mini album for those presently active and also those not able to clown any longer due to health issues. The dedication is somthing that is very special. The ranger produce of course Tim Holtz stains
    I would love to know all the uses. I have them all and love them.

  35. I had no doubts about you and G45. I love Le Cirque and I want to learn to the new stains. Can't wait to get the kits for these. You are so amazing and I love your work. Thanks again for the AWESOME patterns. Have fun at Ranger U. I wouldn't be surprised if you are not an instructor for them before long. WOOO HOOO!!
    Thanks, Kimmy B. (North Carolina)

  36. Laura, you are a very special talented lady. Your projects and classes are so much fun. I am in awe of your creative process. Congrats on making the DT for Graphic 45. My favorite paper lines are..all of them..but if I had to choose it would be either the Le'Romantic or Communique. I would love to learn about the application of Perfect Pearls. Thanks for celebrating with a giveaway. Sherry Friis

    ReplyDelete
  37. Wow, what a generous giveaway :) Thanks again, Laura, I'm continually amazed at your generosity :) My favorite Graphic 45 line would have to be one of two, either Steampunk, or the Once Upon a Springtime...I can't make up my mind. And as for Ranger, I just got a packet of the Perfect pearls and have no idea how to make it look like it always looks when others use in online...so that would be great with me, but since I have so little already in the way of scrapbooking supplies, really anything you do with Ranger would be interesting and very educational for me, so I would be happy with anything :) Am still so excited to know that you made the list for Graphic 45 :D

    ReplyDelete
  38. Woohoo! Congratulations to you Laura!! You are very much deserving of this honor and opportunity. :) My favorite paper hands down is Once Upon a Springtime. There are so many Ranger products I'd like to learn how to use so it's hard to choose, but I would say at this moment it would be the new Distress stains. They are still a mystery to me. See you tonight. ~QueensPaperPalace

  39. Congratulations :)

    I love the Christmas Past Paper, and I really like the Ranger Distress inks. :)

    Even a tiny flower made by you would make me so proud ! Everytime I'm sad, I watch one of your shows.. Don't care how many times I've seen them before. And don't care that I have to get up at 3.50 every Saturday morning to watch your show, because you make me happy!

  40. Congratulations on being named to be on the Graphic 45 Design team. And also working with T!m Holtz and going to Ranger U. Things happen in three's, but yours will be mutiplyed.
    The Graphic 45 paper line I like is the one you just used, Botanical by Susan Wingot (spring). And all products that come with the paper line. What I have a hard time with is the alcohal inks, stains and wash. Greek to me.
    Go over your list of things you have to take to college. Ranger U - as the logo says you are creative, an educator, and you inspire us.
    Thank You. Relax and get messy,and learn a TON.

Congratulations on a fantastic week for you!!!

  54. My favorite G-45 paper is One Upon A Springtime, because it so gorgeous. It just the kind of paper that makes you smile in awe. My favorite Ranger products are distress inks and glossy accents, because they can be used to change ordinary things into extraordinary. The Ranger product that I would like to learn more about is the alcohol inks. I just got my first set. I am really excited to put them to good use. Thanks for allowing us to celebrate with you!

    ReplyDelete
  55. My favourite has to be Once upon a Springtime, it's just gorgeous. As for my favourite Ranger product, Distress Inks. All my other ink pads are now almost redundant! So pleased you are having such a great time with everything at the moment, you will have so much to tell us after your Ranger eperience. Sue x

  56. I swear at 8:55 this morning I heard a squeal of excitement all the way down here in Southern California! Congratulations on a position well deserved!
    I have a lot of Ranger products but have the darnest time trying to figure out I can use the alcohol inks in any of my papercrafting. So, if I could figure out how to use them with Graphic 45's La Romantique paper line, I would be in paper heaven!
    Looking forward to many more of your beautiful and fun projects!

  59. Can't wait for tonight. I love the graphic 45 Holiday stack. So versatile. I have a lot of Ranger products thanks to the 12 days of Christmas tags, but I want to see the metal binder rings in action, like how you attach to a box to create an album.

I love all the graphic 45 paper but never find any in the local craft shops. So I don't know which is my favorite.

Ooops, I was so excited to see that you made the G45 design team and Ranger U I forgot to enter your blog giveaway but telling you that I ordered Curtain Call and Once Upon A Springtime from Berrie and Carol. I made two cards using Curtain Call so far and posted them on my blog. I want to eventually get all of their papers available now. Circus, Steampunk, and On The Boardwalk. I also LOVE ranger distress inkpads by Tim Holtz. I am trying to get all of them. I LOVE the Tim Holtz dies. I recently bought the birdhouse, film strip, ticket strip, medalion strip, so far. Thanks for the opportunity to win. Since my husband passed away in November I have found this new craft to help me stay sane and I am so happy to be here! Thanks for all you share Laura! I love your classes and your sharing!

  64. Hi Laura,
    Congratulations on being a part of the Design Team for Graphic 45. I really love the "Le Cirque" paper, I recently took my granddaughter to the circus and so want to use the paper to memorialize our time there. I also love the Perfect Pearls, but have not used them yet as I am not sure what to do with them or how to use them in a project. I am so excited to be able to participate in your class tonight on UStream!!! Thank you,

My favorite Graphic 45 paper would be Once Upon a Springtime and the ranger products I would love to learn would be perfect pearls or spray or the color wash sprays. Have a blast at Ranger U, you deserve it, you've been going non-stop and can't wait to learn new things when you get back! Thanks for all I have already learned and for the inspiration!

  85. Congrats on your DT spot! I must admit I wasn't familiar with G45 papers but I've just had a Google and OMG they're LUSH! I will have to to invest! :lol:

    I love the look of the Steampunk papers... fabulously collagey and vintage. :)

    The Ranger product I'd like to learn more about using is, again, the Distress Stains. Not seen them in action yet and am dying to know what can be done with them. :)

  88. WAY TO GO, I knew this was going to be a great year for you, and will only get better. First of all thanks for all the great kits and patterns and for all wonderful creativity you have taught of all us. You truly have a great gift and I know we are all happy you take the time to share with us. I hope you make a whole line of stamps or paper collection. For Graphic 45 my fav paper line is Once Upon a Spring time. This paper makes me very happy and for Rangers would like to learn all the stains as never tried them. Do love my Tim Holtz scissors though. And can't wait to use my vegabond. You have inspired me so much in my scrapbooking hobby Thanks Annette Alexander

  90. Well done Laura. I cant wait to see the new creations you dream up for Graphic 45 (hope you can share some of them). I have watched your UStream shows since the beginning, but I was still blown away when you put all of your G45 projects together in the slideshow. My favourite paperline at the moment is Once upon a springtime. I confess to having a lot of Ranger products, but I dont know how to make the most of them. I would really like to know how to use Perfect Pearls without making a mess. Laura your projects are so inspiring but you show us that they are also "do-able" and not intimidating. A big thank you to you and your family.

    As far as Tim Holtz goes I use his Distressed Inks all the time ... for everything! I'm excited to try the Distressed Stains too.

    CONGRATULATIONS.....boy choosing between Graphic 45 is very difficult for me....so many to love...although Upon a Springtime is gorgeous (love the colors and graphics) I am leaning toward Curtain Call...I have loved my trips to France (Paris in particular and visiting the Moulin Rouge) searching my roots, so love the flavor and feel of this paper...brings back wonderful memories....as for Ranger, I would love to learn more about the effects of alcohol inks on various types of mediums and how to achieve those results....I am excited and delighted to hear that you will be creating your own stamps for two reasons: first because I can't wait to see what your creative mind designs; and secondly I purchased (but have yet to use) the Collins stampmaker and if that is what you will be using, watching you use it and your opinion of it, would be most valued.....the fairy house and circus tent would be perfect for my twin grandbabies (a boy and a girl) so I have my fingers crossed....best of luck on your new venture and I hope this leads to many more opportunities for you....

  99. Congrats on making the Design Team. We all knew you could do it! I really like the Once Upon a Springtime G45 paper. As for the Ranger stuff, I don't know enough to tell you what I like or would like to learn about.

  100. Congratulations!! Although I can't say I am surprised. My favorite right now is the Steampunk line but with every new line I have to rethink. Steampunk is the last one I bought though. New tricks with the distress stains would be nice to know about. Keeping my fingers crossed.

  118. This is my first time leaving a comment but I have been watching Laura in awe for a month or so. I can't believe she lives so close yet I've never heard of her until now. I have been missing so much. This is rare talent I have not seen before. And it is so wonderful she is going to work with Ranger products. Tim Holtz is one of my favorites as well as Graphic 45 papers. My favorite Graphic 45 paper is Once Upon a Springtime. I cannot get enough of that paper and should probably buy stock in that company. lol The Ranger product besides the stain which several people have mentioned are the embossing folders. I'm sure there is much more one can do with them other than the obvious. So come on Laura, dazzle me. Thanks and best wishes.

  121. Congrats on being chosen for the Graphic 45 design team!!! (As if we had any doubts that you would be chosen)LOL. My favorite graphic 45 line would have to be Once upon a springtime. I would love to learn more about using the alchol inks and the distress stains. I am so far behind times I just bought alchol inks for the 1st time about a month ago and I am totally intimidated by them. Did I mention they are still in the pack. (I do gaze longing at them and stroke them occasionaly) I need help desperately to set them free! I would dearly love to win one of your kits my budget doesn't quite stretch to fit them in. Maybe someday, until then I will watch and drool over all of your projects. Thanks so much for the chance to win.

  133. Congrats Laura! I have to be honest and tell you that I never knew about G45 until I saw last year's Halloween in Wonderland... huge nut about Halloween! And what I really know from Ranger are products by Tim Holtz and I use stickles at Christmas. I would like to see more w/distressing stains and alcohol inks. I was getting bored w/the same old, same old, until I stumbled onto your blog and you've inspired me with all your wonderful talent!

    I will try and watch your U-stream tonight and if not, then tomorrow I will be a "lurker" (my hubby told me that's what I am when I don't participate!). Looking forward to great new projects while following the paper trail....:)

  134. OMG Laura... Congrats, Congrats, Congrats... What a WONDERFUL week you have had...Actually a great 2011:) So very deserved :)
    I don't think I could choose just one line of the Graphic 45 as my favorite cause I love it ALL, but I guess I would say the Christmas Past, Once Upon a Springtime and Halloween in Wonderland would probably tie for first with me.
    As far as the Ranger products I would like to see how to use the alcohol inks, stains and perfect pearls together.
    And THANK YOU for giving a few of us the opportunity to win your generous give aways.
    Looking forward to being able to start watching your classes again! See you online tonight :) Cindy

The current line that I love the most is Once Upon a Springtime. I would love to try Tim Holtz' glassine...sounds interesting. Thank you for a chance to win!

  172. Hi Laura -- congrats on being a part of the G45 design team -- of course you would be! Such talent. I haven't used any of the G45 paper before -- but really do like the Once Upon a Springtime. I have several of the alcohol ink from Ranger, but they are sitting on a shelf -- need inspiration and instructions! Thanks for the opportunity.

  178. 2011 seems to be your year from the very first day! Many congratulations! May you continue to shine throughout 2011. Distress ink pads are my most favorite and most used Ranger product. I have all 36 colors and have used them all, and Stickles - have them all too. Distress embossing powders is what I want to use more. Have hardly used them at all, but need to become more familiar with them.

  179. CONGRATS!!!!!! But I knew you would make it! Fav G45 is so hard to pick one. Love the Once Upon A springtime right now but Curtain Call is right up there too! I am struggling with Ranger Alochol inks on metal, I have tried using on jewelry findings and if I miss a spot and go back it removes what I had on. If I want to use jump rings and color them etc.

  181. So many good things happening for you and you totally deserve it. You are one of the most creative, warm hearted & humble ppl out there.
    My favorite Graphic 45 collection is Domestic Goddess or Christmas Past. Sorry I just couldn't pick. Ranger product I want to know more about is the Glassine paper. But really so many of the Ranger products are fabulous so any of them would be fine.
    Congrats again!!
