I finally got enough courage to enter the Graphic 45 Design Team audition. I've been a huge fan of Graphic 45 for a long time and being on the design team have been my dream forever. I finally got the courage during the last CHA Mega show where I took a Graphic 45 class. in that class we had to cover a box with papers and create a top for it and then cover some coasters with papers as well. It was a beautiful project but as you know I'm not a fan of copy paste so I decided to change the project a little and bind the coasters into a mini album and add a few interactive surprises. I was halfway done when the class was over and the Graphic 45 team liked it so much I promised to finish it before the end of the show. On the last day of the show I went to the Graphic 45 booth and showed them the finished box with the mini album. When I saw they loved it I knew that I might have a chance to be on the DT if I'll only be able to produce unique pretty projects worthy of the Graphic 45 amazing papers. So....here' it goes....wish me luck!
Graphic 45 Design Team Audition
Vintage Candlestick Phone
The first project I created features one of my all time favorite collections: Communique. I created a vintage candlestick telephone from scratch, building the receiver, talking handle and stick. The base of the phone is a circular box that reveals an interactive circle mini album inside. It's hard to show moving mechanisms in photos so I added a little video to show you how everything works.
Enchanted Forest Tunnel Book
The second project features the magical collection: Enchanted Forest. It's full of knights, princesses and all things fairy tales. That inspired me to create a tunnel book that tells the story of a brave knight saving the defenseless princess from the evil dragon's claws. This was a really fun project to create because it felt like being a kid again reading stories about kings and queens. You get to share my fun because there is a full tutorial to show you how to create it yourself.
Interactive Suitcase Tri-Folder Mini Album
The third project was a little tricky. I only had a few papers from the amazing Cityscapes collection but I wanted to use them for a project so I decided to combine this collection with some leftovers I had from the Communique collection because they go really well together. I created a suitcase not with clothes but with three interactive mini albums. I created each mini album as a file folder with different flaps and interactive surprises in it. Each one celebrating a different city: New York, Paris and London. I had to find all the related images for each city in the papers and what I couldn't find I created myself. I added a little video to show you the folders and the interactive mechanisms in them.
Steampunk Debutante Configuration Box
My final project is an embellished configuration box featuring my favorite collection: Steampunk Debutante. As you know I'm a steampunk enthusiast so I had to make at least one project with this collection and a lot of metal embellishments. It took a lot of work to fussy cut all the images but you know I love doing that. The best part was to assemble each and every little box with all the embellishments. Lucky for me I have small hands so it wasn't a problem 🙂
Thanks so much for making it to the end of this long post.
Please leave a comment telling me what you think of my projects and which one is your favorite. Oho...and don't forget to keep your fingers crosses!

THANK YOU!! for this gears up the last project. I do not have die cut machine (still/yet??) and today I was really upset, how make more gears to my projects. And now i see, that to cut stamped gears is OK. THANKS!!
Congrats and good luck!

Wauu. These are increadible. Gorjuss projects. Good luck!
Oh, you’re so creative… if they have any sense -they’ll choose you. I wish you luck, though you don’t seem to need it – you’ve got talent!

OMG never doubt yourself, you do amazing creations that I always love love love….Good luck with your entries
The Suitcase Album is my favorite. It was hard to choose one because I loved them all. If you don’t get on the design team then the judges are blind.
I love your Steampunk box and the suitcase mimi album! You are so talented and I love your How To videos! Good luck!
Love, love, love your creativity! I don’t know you but I love what you did. My two favorites are the tunnel book (not sure what I’d do with it) and the suitcase travel album – and I travel enough, I will probably copy your idea. How adorable!
Oh my Einat, all these are amazing. You are such a creative genius. If they are wise at G45 they will definitely pick you for their design team. They would be lucky to have you.
Awesome pieces all of them! Allthough I’m not into steam punk myself my favourite is the last piece – so many details to explore. Goos luck with the audition!
I have followed you for a while and your work and imagination are incredibly inspiring. I love it! Good luck. Dtrujillo
I love the small photo book. first thought was it is a phone book. It has so many neat surprises inside. love the rotary dial. You sure put a lot in a very small space
Amazing projects, Einat and GOOD LUCK!!!
Love all your projects Einatt. Good luck with the audition, I am sure they will grab you with both hands x
