Graphic 45 2019 Brand Ambassador Audition

It's that time of year for Graphic 45's Design Team Call and this year I decided I would apply for it again. I thoroughly enjoyed my time being on their team from 2016 - 2018. 
For my audition piece, I have created a tutorial for my See the Beautiful tag featuring the new Kaleidescope collection. I hope you enjoy my creation!


For my tag, I used a variety of the papers and embellishments from the Kaleidoscope Collection as well as some of the Staples from the Staples Collection to decorate my tag. To add some extra interest on my tag, I cut down a ATC policy envelope and tucked it in behind the card giving some extra room to write a special note. 


To finish the centres of the flowers I used the awesome new Matte Pearl Gems, I think these are my new favourite Staple. 


Here are a few more closeups of my tag.




For a complete tutorial of my See the Beautiful Tag, head to my Snapguide.

Planner Post - April Tittle Page

Happy Wednesday! I'm thrilled to be sharing with you my April Tittle Page from my planner today. To create my tittle page spread, I've used a variety of the dies from the Planner Essentials line and patterned paper from ModaScrap. You'll want to read below to learn how I embellished my tittle page.


For the base of my tittle page, I used the new Planner Essentials - 9 die and cut the page out of a patterned paper piece from the Wood Effect paper pack.


To create the layered label for the April page, I started by die cutting rectangles and holder out of kraft cardstock and the same patterned paper I used for the base of my page. To add some interest on the kraft cardstock rectangle and rectangle holder, I applied Potting Soil Archival Ink to the grid stamp from the Patterns 1 stamp set and randomly stamped on each piece. Reapplying the ink as desired. The month was die cut from the Planners Month die out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. To finish the embellishing of the month, I die cut a label out of black cardstock from the Planner Labels die. Ink the edges of the rectangles and rectangle holder using Gathered Twigs Distress Oxide Ink.


In behind the rectangle holder, I die cut the multiple rings twice from the Planner Essentials - 10 die out of kraft cardstock. From the same Planner Essentials - 10 die, die cut the square strip die twice out of black cardstock. Cut one of the square strips down to three squares.


Here's the finished April Tittle Page.


Elizabeth Craft Designs Supplies Used:

- ModaScrap: Wood Effect Paper Pack 

Other Supplies Used:

- Tim Holtz for Ranger Ink: Gathered Twigs Distress Oxide Ink and a Blending tool with foam
- Wendy Vecchi for Ranger Ink: Potting Soil Archival Ink
