Graphic 45 Design Team Audition 2015

I have had the most amazing year being able to serve on the 2014-2015 Graphic 45 Design Team.  I can't rave enough about how much I have grown as an artist, made some new friends/team members, been inspired by G45's designs and have loved, loved and I mean loved digging in those HUGE boxes of Graphic 45 goodness.  I just can't tell you how many goose bumps I get when I see those boxes laying at my door.  This company is truly one of the top notch in the industry to work with and I've been very blessed to do so for the past year. 
I want to thank everyone....of course HUGE THANKS goes out to Graphic 45 and the entire family of G45 for allowing me to create, my's one of the best groups in the world to work with, and of course all of the Graphic 45 followers and lovers.  Your kind comments and posts have really encouraged THANK YOU. 
So it's that time to throw my name back in the hat for a return year of design with Graphic 45.   My fingers are crossed and if it helps I'll cross my toes and eyes heck throw in my legs and arms, LOL.  So please take a moment to see some of my projects from the past year and a recap video at the end.

Learn a new technique with Graphic 45

Today I'm sharing this over the top card I created for Graphic 45 using the Precious Memories collection.  Actually as stunning as this card looks, it's really not that hard and to prove it to you I've made a step by step tutorial to show you how.  

This easel card has the traditional easel card but it also include a four drawer base for you to tuck in a treat or two. 
Don't forget to decorate the interior of your card too...this is especially important with the easel card so you have something for the top of your card to tuck into so it can stand up on it's own. 

If you'd like to see all the supplies I used on this card, hop over to Graphic 45's blog and check it out.  Also be sure to sneak a peek at Katie's card that is perfect for the Saint Patty's Day celebration.

Shake Up Some Springtime with this Graphic 45 Tutorial

Well today is my day to shine with Graphic 45.  I always love these days when I get to show off my latest and greatest using one of their beautiful collections.  Once Upon A Springtime was always one of my favorites so I was happy to see it as one of their re releases this year at CHA. 
I created this shaker card that encases fairies that have glitter and pearls raining down around them as the card is shook.  It's so pretty and believe it or not, it's easy.  In fact I've got a Snapguide Tutorial to show you exactly how easy it is to make your own. 
All of the flower clusters on my card are hand stamped, colored, molded and then clustered together to create the bunches.  The fairies have been fussy cut and layer over the frame...I love the finished result. 

My fellow design team member GINGER is also showing a beautiful card she created using the Artisans Style Collection on the Graphic 45 Blog today so be sure to go see it. 
Oh and have you heard...the CALL IS OUT!!!!!!
