Graphic 45 Design Team Audition 2016

Hi Crafty Friends! If you follow my blog, you'll know that I absolutely love EVERYTHING by GRAPHIC 45. Being part of their Design Team would be a dream come true for me - so I am auditioning again this year! As Albert Einstein said, "You never fail until you stop trying." So, here are three of my favourite Graphic 45 projects (to date) and a new Snapguide tutorial showing how to make a beautiful little Pocket ATC using Graphic 45's Couture Collection.

An Eerie Tale Stacked Coffins and Mini Album
I love Halloween - so creating with Graphic 45's Halloween collections is one my favourite things to do - and this An Eerie Tale project is one of my favourite creations ever. Its three stacked coffins (held together with magnets) that hold a skeleton (top), candy (middle) and a mini-album (bottom). Here are a few photo highlights of the project - but there are lots more pictures on my original blog posts (Post 1 & Post 2). 

Love ~ Layout featuring Olde Curiosity Shoppe
I just adored the Olde Curiosity Shoppe collection (I hope it gets re-released!) - and I created this layout way back in 2012 using it - its still one of my absolute favourite layouts of me with my son.

World's Fair Inspirational Shadow Box
I love mixed media projects - so whenever I can, I'll combine my Graphic 45 papers with some mixed media techniques. I recently created this Shadow Box to hang in my craft room using the World's Fair collection - and fun mediums like crackle paste, graphite texture paste, crackle accents and Distress Inks. Here are few photos of the full project, but you can see more details and close-ups on my original blog post here 

Snapguide Tutorial - Couture Pocket ATCs
So, I decided to update my tutorial since first posting my audition. I gave Snapguide a try and I LOVE IT! It is so easy to use and will definitely be my go-to for all future photo tutorials! I put together a tutorial to demonstrate how to create one of these Couture pocket ATCs - I hope you enjoy it. 

Note: If you want to see the original Youtube Slideshow tutorial I had posted, you can find it here.

Well, that's my audition blog post! Wish me luck! Happy Crafting!
