Graphic 45 Seasons Ensemble – by Sharon Johnson

I have fallen in love with the Seasons Collection from Graphic 45. It has beautiful images to cover all 4 seasons. I created an ensemble today, two actually. One is for fall and the other is for Christmas. When I get all my fall and holiday projects complete, then I can pull this out again and create some projects for spring and summer. There are a lot of photos today, so please bear with me.

Autumn1 DK 640x466

This is my Autumn ensemble.

I made a large gift tag (4.5 x 6.5″) for a kraft handled bag, a large card (4.5 x 6.5″) and a small note card (3.5 x 4.5″).

The images are all from the package of ephemera cards – gosh, do I love these cards. 32 cards per package. They have an image side and the reverse is a journaling side. I was just after the beautiful images.

I made my chipboard type buttons here using the coordinating papers from the 8×8″ pad and some cardstock.

Ribbon, string and flowers finished off my projects.

That is one of my home-made chipboard style buttons on the upper left.

Aren’t these papers/images just gorgeous!!!

Autumn2 480x443

This is the large tag for a gift bag.

Again, I made the topper but the tiny chipboard under the flowers was a part of the collection.

And the is the smaller note card.

It could be used to send a note, as a gift enclosure or tag for a bag.

This is just paper, no embellishments at all.

Christmas4 2ndDK640x596

And this is the Christmas ensemble, similar to the Autumn ensemble.

Again, all from the same paper collection – Seasons.

All the measurements are the same as the Autumn ensemble.

Christmas1 480x601

Again, that is one of my home-made chipboard style buttons on the upper left.

I can’t get over the beauty of all these papers!

Christmas2 480x622

This tag is again the same size as the Autumn tag, just in a vertical orientation.

The Season of Joy topper is from the chipboard in this collection, but I added the blue and red matting.

Christmas3 480x445

Again, a simple note card – paper only, no embellishments.

I can’t tell you how I enjoyed making these projects.

If time weren’t always my enemy, I would have done one for Spring and Summer, too.

Next time!
