As you might know, I have been a designer for Graphic 45 for two years. This has definitely been one of my most exciting creative endeavours. Working with Graphic 45's papers and embellishments is a true delight and the people behind Graphic 45 are also wonderful to work with. Needless to say, I enjoyed every minute of my DT membership for Graphic 45 and it was with a heavy heart that I left their team after two years.
So can you imagine my excitement when I read the announcement of their annual design team call? I didn't have to doubt even a second if I would give it a go. I love Graphic 45 and it would be a true honour for me to be part of the Graphic 45 DT family again.
So with this blogpost I would like to re-apply for the Graphic 45 design team call. In this blogpost I will show you three of my favourite Graphic 45 projects, as well as a card tutorial that I made especially for this call.
1. Your Time to Shine lay-out
My first project is a lay-out that features two of my most favourite collections: Once Upon a Springtime and Artisan Style. I love the fact that Graphic 45's collections blend really well.
It may not be a secret anymore that I love working with lots of layers. This lay-out was no exception. I added many layers of papers and fussy cut elements to give my lay-out a luxurious look.
2. Ooh La La lay-out
My second lay-out is one that I made during my design team period for Graphic 45. I made it with the gorgeous Couture collection and did lots of fussy cutting from the papers to adorn my lay-out.
The flowers and other fussy cut elements were all adhered with foamtape to make them stand out more.
3. Celebrate card
My third project is a card featuring the lovely "Botanical Tea" collection. Again, lots of layering and fussy cutting on this card!
I just love the pretty butterflies in this collection and cut out a few of them to decorate my card.
4. Card tutorial
I also made a card tutorial especially for this DT call. I made a vintage-inspired card with four different Graphic 45 collections: Steampunk Debutante, French Country, Times Nouveau and Botanicabella. You can check out the Snap Guide below to see the different steps that I followed to make this card.
