Graphic 45 Giveaway!

To all the good little boys and girls who followed my instructions to come back today, let me richly reward you for your patience and loyalty (and respecting [my] authority *snark*).

If you have not heard of Graphic 45, the FIRST thing I have to say to you is: Where the hell have you BEEN? Got your head in the toilet?!

The second thing I have to say is: You simply must check them out. ‘Cuz they rock so hard I pretty much lose my balance. The world stops spinning on its axis. And pigs fly (or maybe they’re hurtled up into the sky because, you know, the earth stopped spinning on its axis and all).

Oh, and they have a blog, too!

Graphic 45 has FOUR mid-release lines out:
Christmas Past
Domestic Goddess
Renaissance Faire

So here’s the deal. Graphic 45 has donated a FULL LINE of both Transatlantique AND Renaissance Faire! How EXCITING is that? (I’m pretty excited. I think I peed.)

telling us what you wish you knew how to do, project-wise. You know – if you want to learn how to use beeswax or draw faces… whatever. IF YOU LINK US UP, leave a comment with the link, and you’ll get TWO entries.

Here are the full pages I sneaked on Friday. Click the links to goggle at the entire line.

A big thanks to Candy Rosenberg, Graphic 45 Marketing Director and Senior Educator (and favor-doer extraordinaire for us gals here at Gauche Alchemy). Go to her blog here. She’s got some great stuff, and she’s on a bunch of design teams, too – rightly so. ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. AMY!!! After all that hand wringing and just EVERYthing you had to go and pee yourself!!!

    faces and other stuff, and stamping in beeswax/just plain wax-wow, can I? I’ve got eleven papers waxed with just plain wax and a couple of other things waiting for some stitching before I wax poetic on them! People, people, people there is a quicky beeswax tut on the left side here somewhere- yum).

  16. I’d love to learn how to incorporate different mediums into scrapbooking – like canvases and other unusual materials like maybe art journals etc.

  17. Well, I love the way collages look yet whenever I try my hand at it, its either too much over the top (as in I try to cramp in as much as possible and it just looks messy & cramped) or its too empty (as in there just isnt enough to even vaguely qualify as a collage!) I do hope that I could get it “just riight” one day…one FINE day ๐Ÿ˜›

  34. Amy, I have a question(I realized after I wrote it that it might count)…when you say anywhere,does that mean anywhere… like mentioning it in a Flickr comment to someone? If so I can have hubby link it.

  35. Love Graphic 45, and all of their new products; would love to get my hands on some. OK, so… in this day and age, you’d think I would know how to start digi-scrappin….not! And, I’ve done some collage stuff, which turned out great, but would love to learn how to use beeswax…I just love the effects.

  36. I have always wanted to try beeswax but can’t get my hands on any. And even if by chance I did get my hands on some what would I do with it? ha ha Graphic 45 rocks and I would love to play with some!!!
