Graphic 45 Design Team Audition 2015


When the Graphic 45 Design Team call for 2015 opened up, I found myself reminiscing on the days not so long ago when my dream came true and I was selected to be a designer for my all-time favorite paper company - Graphic 45! I completed 2 terms (2012-2014) and hope (fingers crossed!) that I would be considered for another term with the 2015 design team. ♥

Here is my First Round submission of projects that define my strengths as a designer. 


Mixed Media Altered Canvas

There is something "freeing" about mixed media art and it's one of my passions. Here is a mixed media canvas I created with inspiration from the Secret Garden paper collection.







Steampunk Spells - Easel Card Box

I created this box by hand using heavy weight chipboard, lots of Scor Tape and the gorgeous Steampunk Spells paper collection. I had a ton of fun with this one and also created a video tutorial to help others make one for themselves! ♥








Bohemian Bazaar: Card

I created this card for Summer CHA 2013. I love the bold colors of the Bohemian Bazaar collection!







Bohemian Bazaar - Upside Down Tag

I created this tag for Summer CHA 2013 as well. The Bohemian Bazaar collection screams to be fussy cut with all the amazing images! ♥







12 Days of Christmas - Door Album

I had a fun and festive time creating this door album which features the 12 Days of Christmas paper collection. I share a few pictures of the inside of the album as well below...












Steampunk Spells - Altered Printers Tray

If there is one thing I enjoy, it's to get down and dirty and alter something! :-)
I did just that with this printers tray and Graphic 45's Steampunk Spells paper collection. Fun times! ♥











Secret Garden - Mixed Media Altered Wooden Spatula

I'm always looking for new things to alter. I found a set of wooden cooking utensils in my kitchen drawer that have never been used... so I decided to alter the wooden spatula! ♥








French Country - Altered Mason Jar Tabletop Candles

The perfect decor to warm-up your Thanksgiving Table!





Couture - Wedding Layout

I enjoy creating scrapbook pages with TONS of layers! And all the wonderful images included in Graphic 45's papers allow for tons of layering fun! ♥







Botanical Tea - My Friend Layout

Sweet, sweet Nala commemorated on a layout with sweet, sweet Botanical Tea by Graphic 45! ♥







Sweet Sentiments - Artist Trading Card

The Staples tags are so versatile! I enjoyed making this upside down tag for Winter CHA 2014.







Sweet Sentiments - Altered Wooden Heart Box

This is the perfect keepsake or gift for Valentine's day! A lot of "heart" and love goes into making one. I also shared a tutorial on my YouTube channel to show step by step on how to alter this box. ♥











Botanical Tea - "Just Because" card

The perfect way to let that special someone know how much you mean to them! ♥






Sweet Sentiments - "LOVE" Banner

A sweet way to let that special someone know how much you love them! Put your LOVE on display with a banner! ♥








Good Ol Sport - 49er Layout

A great way to keepsake a special moment. This was definitely one of my favorites! It includes one of the pockets from the Tags and Pockets collection to store our ticket stubs from the 49er game! ♥




Botanical Tea - Treat Bags

These are the perfect compliment to your party table! ♥




Sweet Sentiments - Altered Printers Tray

Another fun project getting down and dirty and Shabby Chic with Sweet Sentiments! ♥









Time to Flourish - Step Card

The purples of this collection are gorgeous!





An Eerie Tale - Halloween Card

Layer after layer, this was fun to create! ♥



Last but not least, here are a few projects not made with Graphic 45, but reflect my style and strength as a designer...


"Ride the Tide" Layout







Mixed Media Altered Pumpkin




Thank you so much for stopping by to take a peek at my work.
