As soon as I saw By the Sea papers by Graphic Design I knew I had to have them. My parents live at the beach in New Jersey and I wanted to make something for them using these papers. I love that these papers are two sided. The design is beautiful and classic. My parents loved the little treasure box I made them.
This is an absolutely beautiful collection of papers for any one with a nautical love. I bought this collection to make gifts for a friend that just bought her first home. She's a beachy/nautical kind of gal. I've made several projects from this collection, from a 3-D framed art piece from the main page to an anchor monogram. Each paper is unique but all go together so well. A great purchase!
I love Graphic 45 papers and this line is perfect for the pictures of our family vacation at the beach, and also our recipe card exchange from that trip. The colors remind me of summer and salty air! Lovely!
The graphics on this collection are vintage and beach theme, two of my favorite themes. I have made several projects and this is my fourth set of 12x12 and 8x8 sets! This is my first Graphic 45 collection that I have come back for four servings of, but each time I turn around, there is another item I want to make with these papers. The most recent I bought are going to be greeting cards, something I have not done before with Graphic 45 papers. I made a Jim the Gentleman Crafter project using these papers, a Kathy Orta project and some wall decor for my newly acquired craft room. I cannot seem to get enough of this set. Scrapbook.com carries these papers long after they are gone from the stores thankfully!
