Graphic 45 Brand Ambassador

I don’t know if you saw the post on the Graphic 45 blog but I have huge news. I’m a Graphic 45 Brand Ambassador! You may have noticed that G45 did not post a Design Team call this year. Well, they have an exciting reason why! They are changing things up a bit here at Graphic 45 with the blog, Instagram, Facebook, and social media. One of those changes is that the Design Team (including me) is returning for another term! Since they had so many new designers last year, and we let them know we were going to audition for another term and since there were 13 of us they wanted to celebrate our incredible work for another year here at Graphic 45!     Graphic 45 Brand Ambassador Some of the fun changes for 2017 are changing the Design Team name to Graphic 45 Brand Ambassadors, adding more fun and short videos, monthly craft studio tours, more Facebook Live …

My Graphic 45 March Projects

Today I want to share with you My Graphic 45 March Projects. These projects with tutorials can be found on the Graphic 45 blog under Einat Kessler. This amazing DT year with Graphic 45 is almost over but I think I’m going to try for one mire year, what do you think?     My Graphic 45 March Projects The first project this month is a mixed media canvas. You might not think that you can create mixed media project with the products of a paper company. But Graphic 45 have a line of metal embellishments that are perfect for mixed media. And you know how much I love metal right? This project is all about locks and keys and layering them on top of each other. There is a full step by step tutorial on the G45 blog.     The second project is an Easel Drawer Box Card. This beautiful project was created with the Ladies Dairy collection. It’s …

Tag Mini Album with Graphic 45

Here’s a little sneak peek of my Tag Mini Album with Graphic 45. This mini album is full of interactive goodness inside. Lots of pockets, flaps and 3D embellishments. You might have thought that interactive designs are only for 8×8 mini albums but you can also create them on smaller tags!       Tag Mini Album with Graphic 45 I created this tag with the amazing Olde Curiosity Shoppe collection which was recently brought back. I just love all the images on the paper like flying pigs, butterflies and boots with wings. I created this mini album for the CreativeWorld show in Frankfurt where I demoed it at the Graphic 45 booth. While being in the booth I continued working on it and I added many more details and interactive mechanisms. You can see all the details and the photos of this tag mini album on the Graphic 45 blog! You can also see my other projects there under …

Get ready for Valentine’s Day

Get ready for Valentine’s Day with a little inspiration from Graphic 45! I’m sharing my two projects that will be featured in the Graphic 45 blog before Valentine’s Day. Check them out!      Get ready for Valentine’s Day My first project is an easy and fast card that could fit any dear and special valentine. It was really fun to make because I did a lot of fussy cutting like I love. If you want to get some tips on fussy cutting you can find them HERE. I also did some layering and used 3D foam tape to give the card dimension. You’ll be surprised how much a little square of foam tape can add to a card.     The second project is a Valentine’s Envelope mini album complete with a step by step tutorial. This mini album has an envelope for each day of the week and an insert in each envelope. The idea is to create …

My Graphic 45 October Projects

My Graphic 45 October Projects are here! This month I surprised myself a little because one of the projects I created is not really my style. The other project is totally up my alley but not so much. Confused? So am I… this was a great month in terms of projects because I managed to step outside my comfort zone and that’s always a good thing!     My Graphic 45 October Projects       The first project we had to do was a pop-up project. Just the project for me right? I love making pop-up projects. I actually think they got the idea to make projects with a pop-up element from one of my DT submission projects: the pop-up book. Anyway, I wanted to create something easy that everyone can do. Sometimes when people hear pop-up they immediately think it’s too complicated for them so I wanted to change that. So I created a pop-up card. Here’s where …

Graphic 45 Fall and Halloween

This month on Graphic 45 Fall and Halloween I have two sneak peeks for you. I had to create two assignments this month one for fall and one for Halloween. Not only did I have a lot of fun creating these projects but I enjoy the fact I have to challenge myself to create fun and unique projects. I have to say that working with papers you love sure makes that so much easier 🙂     Graphic 45 Fall and Halloween The fall project is a project you can create under 60 minutes! Yes, it’s not only fast it’s also affordable and easy to make. I love the fall first the weather is getting colder and I can feel the winter at the end of the tunnel. Second I love those orange and yellow colors. I created a Fall Wreath you can hang on your door or inside the house. The flowers on it will never die. Check out …

Upcycle, Recycle and Reuse

This month our projects at Graphic 45 were all about Upcycle, Recycle and Reuse. We had to take an unwanted item that was on its way to the garbage and give it new life by turning it into something beautiful! You will not believe how many unwanted things get thrown away when we can reuse them. The ideas of the other G45 design team members blew me away. Check out the Graphic 45 blog during the month of July to see all the ideas.      Upcycle, Recycle and Reuse I wanted to be original and do something different. I didn’t want to repeat something I already did or just cover something with paper. I wanted to create something beautiful but useful too. After all the purpose of giving an object a new lease of life is to use it for something right? When we Upcycle, Recycle and Reuse we don’t only reduce our trash but we get to use thing …
