The projects that I wish to be viewed for consideration in this first stage of the audition are the following. They are projects that are my own designs. They range from a card, to mini albums, to decor pieces. A brief description and a links to the original blog posts will accompany each project. Some of them also have videos and/or tutorials that I have done. OK, here we go!!!
First up is this card that I made for a friend of mine for her 50th birthday. I wanted it to be classy and elegant, and the "Ladies Diary" collection was perfect for this.
"Save the Date" calendar challenge with the craft group "Just a Few Friends". It was a small group of my crafty internet friends that just liked to craft together. I created this perpetual calendar that hangs on my craft room door. "Kraft Reflections" Graphic 45 paper suited this project perfectly. The link also includes a tutorial on how to make the calendar "sticks".
"Tall Skinny Mini" album. This album used the "Old Curiosity Shop" papers by Graphic 45. I loved how this came out. It stands 12" tall by 6" wide and incorporates 10 different pages styles.
The blog post has a lot of pictures of the different pages, and I did an extensive tutorial series on YouTube for this album."Strut Your Style". I recycled a box from work and created this fun piece with lots of interaction.
It includes pockets, tags, drawers, and mini album within the project. The "Old Curiosity Shop" papers were PERFECT for this."There's No Place Like Home." The "Magic of Oz" papers were the inspiration for this piece. I created the house to resemble a birdhouse. I didn't have a pattern, so I created this myself.
mini album that I created with the "Domestic Goddess" paper line. I think this is one of my favorite papers by Graphic 45. I loved this line. I designed the pages myself.
"Three Tags Mini Album Page" can be found in this post.
This file folder album can be seen on my blog, with a bunch of pictures that show just how extensive this album is.
This album is called "Come Fly with Me". I created a way to use cards and envelopes to make a "pull out page".
The tutorial for how I created this page pull out can be found on my blog here.
And last, but not least…
This is my "Happy Days Mini Album." This is another mini album that I designed myself.
There are several videos on this album, including a walk-through and two tutorials.
Thank you, everyone at Graphic 45, not only for your consideration for the design team, but for creating gorgeous papers to inspire my creativity!
