Graphic 45 Design team 2013 audition

Hi all.

I'm going to audition for the Graphic 45 design team. I'm so excited to show you these projects I have created and review a couple that I already posted using Graphic 45 papers.

The first round is due by March 21.

So here are my 6 projects.

The first one is a calendar I made using the A place in time paper collection. I cut 1" by 1" squares for the dates and used stickers for the numbers. This measures 12" by 7. Each topper is held to the top with magnets. The back of the calendar also has magnets so it can be hung on a fridge or other metal object.

The Second project I made was a Mini album made from cards and envelopes.The cover measures 5 1/2 by  7 3/4 I used the secret Garden paper collection for this one. I just love this paper pack!

 The following pictures are of the cards that are stuck in each envelope page. 

This album I made using a chipboard cover and spine. The cover measures  7 1/2 by  8 1/2. I used the hidden hinge binding system. Each page is constructed using kraft cardstock.

This next album is made using Ladies diary paper collection from Graphic 45 and file folders from the office supply store. The cover measures  9 1/2 by 9 1/4. I used 7 gypsies binder rings to bind the album. 

This next album measures  5 1/2 by 7 and has a chipboard cover and spine. The paper collection is called Memories by teresa collins. I made this album to house pictures of our recently departed cat Pounce. I loved how it turned out and can't wait to add more pictures and embelishments. 

Here is a video and pictures. 

The only way to properly show this next project is with a video I did on You Tube. 

and the last is a 12 x 12 layout  I did using Olde Curosity Shop papers


  1. I am a Grapic 45 addict I love all of your projects you did a wonderful job. Good Luck on your entry!!


    1. Thanks Angela. It's so hard to find Graphic 45 embellishments here it bums me out

  2. Thanks you want an album when I come let me know which one

  3. I found some Le cirque paper at Tuesday Morning I was so happy! I mostly order my embellishment online though I hate paying for something and having to wait it drives me nuts!!
