Graphic45 ABC Primer Collection

Summer CHA Sneak Peeks!

One of the NEW collections from Graphic45 is called ABC Primer. I've been begging Diane for the past two years to do a school line. I think she did one just to shut me up! {wink} This is my NEW favorite Graphic45 line! I love and adore vintage school images.

One of my favorite photos is this one of my mother-in-law, taken when she was about 5 or 6 years old. I've scrapped the photo before, but it's so perfect for the new paper, that I scrapped it again!

The patterns of the ABC Primer paper line look so nice together. To make each print pop, I backed the paper with black cardstock. This is a technique I use a lot in card-making, but it works very well for scrapbook pages also. I tend to use a lot of "wasted" paper and cardstock due to layering, but...the end result is worth it!

I hope you enjoy all of the sneak peeks you are seeing around the Internet! If you keep an eye on my blog, you will see more to come!
