Graphic 45 Design Team 2013 Audition

I am so excited to see Graphic 45 is having their Design Team Call. Graphic 45 is one of my favorite paper companies and I have been anticipating this time of the year. I love how easy their paper and staples are so easy to use on your layouts, cards and altered projects. We are asked to create a minimum of 6 projects for the audition and have them posted on our blog by March 21, 2013, so if you haven't ever tried out for a design team this now is the time. .
On Jan 21st I was a Guest Artist for Graphic 45 which was so much fun...I want to share some of the projects that were featured on that  blog post. I created an altered book stand using a clock base that I found with Graphic 45 ABC Primer Collection.  
I added several fussy cut embellishments that I had layered to the front on the clock base, adding some metal feet to creating the stand. 

I made a fun 4 x 4 mini album of my grandchildren' first day of school to place on the stand. 
My next project is an altered birdhouse that I made using Graphic 45 Happy Haunting collection. I love all of the fun papers that are in the collection. 
 This is one side of the birdhouse
 and have to show the moon I created using and accordion folded circle from the paper.
I love to make is one of the things I do best...Here are two that I made using Ladies Diary Papers.
 The tulle on both cards just give the continue vintage feel of  the paper, don't you think.
 I made this fun altered box to give to a special girlfriend in my life when we were doing a gift exchanged at Christmas. I made it from the Nutcracker Sweet Collection.
 Don't you just love the poinsettia flower I made from the paper. I know I do.
 My fun Candy Jar is made from Olde Curiosity Shoppe and a Sizzix die. So fun to make and fill it with candy. I love the Pig Fly paper, how fun is that....
It's Your Day to Shine Tag was so fun to make using the lanterns from the Bird Song Collection and it was perfect for the gift bag that I gave to a friend.
I made a couple of layouts from Bird Song was perfect for the photos I took when we were on vacation at VanDusen Botanical Gardens in Vancouver.
 I added a few of the fussy cut lanterns to both layouts along with a bit of black twine.
 added a few butterflies, covered Graphic 45 buttons on top of a cake doily
and placed a hidden tag behind one of the photos with a Koren poem. 
Along with the Tropical Travelogue I want to share the Hello card I made but I would love you to pay close attention to the flower bouquet that I  made.
Aren't they beautiful and the best part they are cut from the paper. I hope you have enjoyed seeing  my projects that I am sharing today for the Graphic 45 Design Team Audition. Fingers Crossed. Hugs Pammejo
