Water Colors Tags with Stamps and Fussy Cutting Tutorial

Hi dear crafty friends! Today I’m sharing the Water Colors Tags with Stamps and Fussy Cutting Tutorial I made as my first post as Graphic 45 Brand Ambassador. I know I’ve already told you how excited I am about it. Being a design team member for a second year is a dream come true!     Water Colors Tags with Stamps and Fussy Cutting Tutorial In this project I decided to explore water colors with the Graphic 45 stamps. I used water colors before but this time I wanted to see if I could use them to create a background for the tags. The Voyage Beneath the Sea papers match the sea water look of the water colors on the tags perfectly. I have a very modest set of water colors but that didn’t matter because I blended a few colors together to create more colors. After all the sea has so many colors of blue and green in it …

Roses Treasure Box with Graphic 45

Hi crafty friends! Today I want to share with you my Roses Treasure Box with Graphic 45. This is the last post as a DT member before I start my new Graphic 45 path as an ambassador for 2017-2018. This project looks much more complicated than it really is and you can make it too with no problems at all.     Roses Treasure Box with Graphic 45 The box is made with the technique I’ve already shared with you before HERE. The post also has a step by step video tutorial to make it even easier for you. So all you need is to follow these instructions and build the two parts of the box.       The embellishments on top of the box also look much harder than they really are. All I did was cut flowers and the frame from the amazing Portarit of a Lady and attach them to the lid of the box. I …

Nature Sketchbook Double Layout with a Twist

Hi crafty friends! Today I want to share one of my Graphic 45 project for this month: Nature Sketchbook Double Layout with a Twist. It has been awhile since I created a layout, much less a double layout so it wasn’t easy. Nature Sketchbook Double Layout with a Twist However even though creating the layout was initialy kind of hard once I started it all came back and I had fun. I did notice that it’s almost impossible for me now to create a project with only paper. I always feel like I need to add a little mixed media to it. This time it was no different. So the twist I added to the page was green grass made from gauses I sprayed with different colors of green inks. Not only did it add color it also added dimension and texture to the page making it more interesting and fun to look at.       Nature Sketchbook is …

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 …

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 …
