Graphic 45 Design Team Audition 2015

 Wow it is hard to believe that year has almost gone by since the last the Graphic 45 Design Team Call but it is that time again. I wasn't sure if I would tryout again but with a bit of encouragement I decided to share with you a few of my favorite pieces for my submission for the call. I just love the layout I created using Secret Garden and a few photos from our trip to Vancouver. The Secret Garden Collection just works perfectly with the garden photos as well as my love for banners, lace and fun embellishments I enjoy adding to my projects.
 The Best is Yet To Come Card is a wonderful card I made to encourage a friend. One of my favorite things is making my own embellishments especially flowers. The Ladies Diary Collection has fabulous papers to do just that with. Of course the sentiment would be wonderful if I could make the Graphic 45 Team because it would be my "Best is Yet to Come" dream come true.
 Who doesn't love die cuts...my Wish You Were Here Card is a wonderful card that showcases just that. I used the Bohemian Bazaar Collection which is perfect for die cuts. The doily center of the card is a fabulous example of one that I layer and fussy cut around before I placed it on the center of my card. The roses are hand made using another die along with the leaves.
 Did I mention "fussy cutting"...oh my, it is one of my most favorite things to do. I made my French Country Gift Tag Box to use as a gift. I punched out all of my tags bu each piece either has a fussy cut, layered embellishment or an embellishment from the French Country Collection.
 This is my all time favorite piece...using Graphic 45 Steampunk Spells and Olde Curiosity Shoppe, what a fabulous combinations of the collections to make my Steampunk Spells Halloween Top Hat. Lots of things to see..at every angle and every turn from premade embellishments to fussy cut and layered ones.
I will finish with my fun Snowman... I made it using several different Graphic 45 papers from several different collection. Did I tell you I am a Graphic 45 Paper Hoarder, lol...it is my go to papers. I made my snowman using Artist Blocks and if you would like to see a collection of Graphic 45 blocks that I have made over the last year click HERE. Well I hope you have enjoyed my submission for the Graphic 45 Design Team Audion 2015 and with fingers crossed I will wait to see if I made the top 25. Hugs Pam
