Crafting Tips with Graphic 45

I'll be at a retreat later this year and I've asked all the participants to swap a page for my mini with me.  Won't that be just so fun and I think I'll have the best mini ever with all that talent in one book from so many people!  I used  the Times Nouveau DCE for my cover and I think the image of the classy ladies is perfect.  I have a "thing" for all the G45 buttons so I've used that as part of my cover too.

I've recorded a video for you of how I made my cover and I'm sharing some inking tips.  I'll also show you how to make your cover more durable, line up your letters, and the easy way to glue metal embellishments so they stay where you want them.

I'll show you how to get your letters lined up straight in my video.
