Graphic 45 Design Team 2012 Audition

Ok, well here I go:)  Here is some of my creations that I would like to showcase for the Graphic 45 Design Team 2012 Audition!  I hope you like them!!!

The first page layout I have is made using the Once upon a spring time collection.  I also added in some Prima flowers and Kaisercraft wooden gates!

This next project was a class that I put together using the ABC Primer Collection.

This was apart of the same class as above.  It is a little folder that holds a movie in the centre and decorated pockets that can hold popcorn and candy!  A great gift!  I used the Curtain Call Collection.

This next project,  I used your Metal Film Canister!  I knew I had to make something with it as soon as I saw it!!!

I have had these pictures for a few years now and have not done anything with them as I had not found the right paper collection.  I was very excited when I laid eyes on the Tropical Travelouge collection!! 

I created this layout for a blog post that was to feature the Graphic 45 ink pads for the scrapbookers blog, Paradise Ponderings.  I choose to use the color Ventian Lace!  I loved the way this turned out and was very impressed with the ink!  I also used it to color the seam binding ribbon.

In this layout I used the Steampunk Denutante collection!

In this layout,  I used My Minds Eye Lost and Found Collection.

This layout was created using the Authentique Glowing paper collection.

For  my final item,  This is a mini album class that I taught.  I sold it out 3 times in the same store and still have a wait list to teach it again.  With this book there is no pattern paper,  all images are stamped or made by means of other paper crafting techniques.  I used mainly Tim Holtz products in this project.

 Thank you for stopping by,  I hope you like what you see and I will be keeping my fingers crossed:)

Happy Crafting

Feature Product - Ranger!!

The feature product at Scrapbookers Paradise for February 16-29 is 15% off all Ranger Products!!  Ranger products include things like: Glossy Accents, Crackle Paint, Acrylic Paint Daubers, Alchol Inks, Distress Inks, Distress Stains, glossy paper and so much more!!

For my project I decided to make this cute little trinket box!  It was alot of fun to create!

The main ranger product I used was the distress Inks!  The colours I used was the antique linen and black soot!

When making the lid,  I first used glossy accents around the top and then sprinkled on the stampedous crushed glass glitter!  To me the silver didn't look quite right so I decided I would take some black alchol ink to alter the color!  I loved the result and hope you all do too:)

I also used glossy accents to adhere the ribbon to the inside boxes!

I love ink,  everything I do has ink on it!  I figure if your fingers inky you aren't having any fun:)
