       Graphic 45 Design Team 2013 Application

This is a page I made using Graphic 45 Tropical Traveloguu, Olde Curiosity Shoppe, and An ABC Primer. 
The following two pages use Tropical Travelogue paper and stickers. along with other papers and embellishments.

This is a mini book which fits in a box. I used a light bulb as the handle for the lid. I chose to have the light bulb upside down so the glass would be protected. It actually screws into the chipboard lid and is very secure. The book is full of hidden pockets, tags and magnetic closures.

 This Binder album uses a mixture of Graphic 45 An ABC Primer and Bo Bunny paper

 This is a book made completely out of paper. I embossed the spine and added Modge Podge for strength.

 This is a card I made. It is a pocket card with three tags tucked in it.

I am liking the whimsical style of this page. These photos are of my favorite place in the world in 2012. The field behind my sisters house. We would go out in the evening when it was light outside and stay until after dark. No one knew we where we were. I plan on visiting it again this year.

I created this binder mini book using Bo Bunny paper and Graphic 45 paper. It has a very vintage feel to it. I did a lot of embossing with Sizzix dies. A lot of stamping and cutting. I used glossy Accents to strengthen paper pieces and I even added a metal washer which i embossed with two kinds of embossing powders to give it an old metal look
This Card is made from all Graphic 45 paper. I call it a pocket card. The 3 tags come out and you can write on them. The butterfly is cut with a die and layered with black to make it stand out. The wings are loose so they have dimension

This is a beautiful mini album i did using A Ladies Diary from Graphic 45. It has hidden pockets, inserts, cards and more. It is made out of paper and glue and is very intricate. I embossed the spine with a Tim Holtz folder and added Modge Podge for strength and shine.

      A little Graphic 45 fun_____
This is a project I have been thinking of for a while. And then I got an email from Graphic 45 for their DESIGN TEAM call. I was so excited. I started this project right away specifically for the call. The light bulb handle idea came to me as I was sitting there one evening in my scrapbook room, staring at my started project. I needed to replace the bulb in my lamp so I unscrewed it. The bulb was so small and cute. I didn't want to throw it away. I started wondering how to incorporate it into my project. So I cut a hole in the chipboard cover, making sure not to go to big. Sure enough it screwed right into the chipboard and it was secure. I recycled something and I loved the finished look

The finished project. After 3 days of working on it every morning and evening. I absolutely love it. I may add pictures or leave it as is. Let me know what you think.

So Much Fun Creating. This is something I've been wanting to for a long time. Scrapbook something about my favorite Country Singer, Johnny Cash. And I couldn't resist the New Bo Bunny Mamma Razzi2 line. I distressed the metal with alcohol ink, used some Tim Holtz Tissue tape and a whole lot of Modge Podge.

This is a class coming March 7, 6:30-9:30pm.
