When I heard Graphic 45 was having a design team call I was so excited! I love G45 so much. Not only is everything they do or create unique and beautiful but it really allows all types of Crafters to use it for a wide array of projects. I quickly broke out my G45 stash to see what I had. After falling in love with all their products all over again I felt very inspired to gather up a few existing projects, create a couple new ones and throw my hat in the ring. For a long time I had strictly admired G45 from afar, in fact for the first year, I think I strictly collected papers, too afraid to cut into the beautiful designs :) However once I dove in and realized all that their products had to offer, I couldn't stop thinking of ways to use them. Below are a couple:
First up, a greeting card created using a vintage Valentines Day postcard and a lovely cut out from the new Curtain call collection....it's quickly becoming one of my favs!
A Layout of my beautiful daughters using the Fashionista collection, perfect for them :)
Al altered canvas with a peak into my Steampunk mind...
A Mini bird house turned Cirque tent, thanks to the new Le Cirque line, check it out, it's awesome!
An altered cigar box I made awhile back. I think this may have been the first time I actually cut up anything and used it, boy was I nervous :)
A few tags inspired by G45 and Tim Holtz, how can it get better than that!
A wall hanging inspired by this Dragonfly Duet paper.
A Travel Album cover using my absolute favorite collection, Transatlantique, a must for any traveler!
An altered purse using the new Curtain call and the Le' Romantique collection, what's more romantic than Paris!
A thank you card for future use, I love this collection too!
An altered gift bag for some unsuspecting friend, I can't wait to fill it up!
This is a new project and I have to say, an instant favorite. The mini album is made of recycled old wood and cork coasters and the close ups of my hubby were taken awhile ago with a project like this in mind.
Another recycled altered item, this time a mini basket became a thank you card/basket :)
A layered Friend card inspired by the new Curtain call collection, I was looking for a reason to use these feathers.
Probably my all time favorite project using G45, a vintage wall hanging inspired by my Grandmother, an avid sewer and lover of fashion. I felt very honored to use her antique doilies and vintage sewing pattern paper.
I hope you enjoyed the collection, thanks for stopping by today :)
