Graphic 45 Design Team Audition 2015

It's that time of year when Graphic 45 puts out their Design Team Call and this year I decided it was the year to apply. I have created 5 different projects using the some of the beautiful new collections from Graphic 45. As you will see below I have a variety of different projects as I enjoy making layouts, cards, mini albums and altered projects. I hope you enjoy my creations!

Project #1: Home Sweet Home Wall Hanging 

I love the new Home Sweet Home paper and when I saw this serving tray I knew it would be a perfect match. The entire tray and sides were covered using various papers out of the Home Sweet Home 12 x 12 paper pad, but I felt the sides were a bit bare so I fussy cut the stamps and chickens out and added them down the left and right sides of the tray as you will see in the photo below. Other supplies that were used are May Arts Jute Twine & twine as well as Paint from Paper Artsy. 

Project #2: Artisan Style Layout

I had so much fun fussy cutting all of the elements on this layout. The entire layout was done using the 12 x 12 Artisan Style Paper pad.  All of the elements came together beautifully. 

Project #3: Artisan Style Tag

This tag uses a variety of Artisan Style paper and the regular ivory tags from the Staples collection. I love the tags from the Staples collection and when Graphic 45 came out with Ivory and Black, I was in heaven. On the chipboard door I used Uttee to make it look like there was rain on the door. Adding the May Arts Seam Binding Ribbon finished the piece. 

Project #4: Dog & Cat Cards

Raining Cats and Dogs is one of my favourite collections from Graphic 45's last release and I knew that it would make cute cards. I used a variety of 12 x 12 paper from the Raining Cats & Dogs Collection and fussy cut it to create a layered look on my cards.

Project #5: Baby's First Year Mini Album

For this project I used the New Mixed Media Album from the Staples collection, the entire 12 x 12 Precious Memories Paper Pad, chipboard and Memories 1 & Memories 2 stamps. You will find a variety of May Arts ribbon throughout the album. I loved all the fussy cutting that I was able to do with this paper pad. The Graphic 45 new Mixed Media Album is amazing and full of possibilities!
