Graphic 45 Design Team 2013 Audition

At some urging from family and friends I have decided to submit and "audition" for the Graphic 45 Design Team call this year and I would like to share a few projects I have created using Graphic 45 and other products over the past year.  Click on the link under the picture to take you to the original blog post for further information.
A canvas made using the Once Upon a Springtime Papers

 I created this canvas for the guest designer spot for Ten Second Studios last year using their Verday Paints and metals to make the flowers and butterflies!
 Don't you love the look of the papers with the lace and the watch?  Awesome feel to it!

A couple chip board books using Graphic 45 papers.

I loved the Magic of Oz book that I saw on another You Tube video when the papers came out and I think the creator was a Graphic 45 designer...Here is my take on that book!

Magic of Oz book. 

 This book was a lot of fun but also a lot of work with all the different page styles and mats that were made.  I love working with tags and the book fit in with the love!

 To see the finished book in its entirety go to the web post shown here.

 I really love the idea of recycling things and when I watched a couple You Tube video's about recycling the left over cardboard tube on toilet paper rolls I fell in love with recycling all over again!

Repurposed and Recycled Stuff!

This is an "unrecycled" rat trap!  It was a lot of fun to make and I plan on making a few more!

This canister is made using the new Graphic 45 French Market papers that I love and a whisky packaging canister!  Loads of fun to be had with this paper pack so I bought 3 sets...

I can't end this post without sharing my calendar pages I have made so far this year!  Enjoy!

I really enjoy creating with Graphic 45 and would enjoy a chance to play with more of their beautiful products!
