Class 1: Graphic 45

8am Friday 11th Jan - I am so pleased that I got a place in this G45 class.  The G45 class ran in parallel to the Ranger classes -  all of the sessions for both companies were sold out the moment they were announced.  If you want the low down on the Ranger classes I suspect other blogs will have them covered -  I think they produced a tag and a canvas judging from the people coming out of the classes.

It was a privilege to be one of the lucky ones that actually got a G45 place.  Laura Denison was extremely well organised and highly entertaining. G45 were generous to a fault with their product .  The class ran smoothly despite the large volume of work required to create a beautiful mini calendar/diary book using the Place in Time papers.

each page is folded and adhered to the next page, each left corner has a nifty origami reverse fold to hold the tags, it also creates a hidden tab holder on the right hand page, this is achieved by folding each 12 by 12 sheet.  G45 gave each student all the required supplies.


G45 - elegant and beautiful

my kind of left overs

after completing the project I still have a box full of G45 goodness, I also received a sample of the French Country tags and envelopes.  The french papers are irresistible. Here are a few links to the G45 stand.  Sign up for their newsletter, and check out their blog, for more inspiration than you can handle.
