Graphic 45 Round 2 Design Team Audition!

Can you just imagine how excited I was to see my name on the list of semi-finalists?  Oh yeah, I did the happy dance all over the house!  After calming down a bit, I set about making 4 new projects just for Round 2.

Here is my audition video in which I am sharing 4 special projects with you.



 First I created a cookbook using the newly released Graphic 45 Mixed Media album and Home Sweet Home.  It is filled with my favorite recipes and has room to add many more recipes.

I have a video tutorial for the hollyhock flowers you see there on the cover.


My second project is a layout using my very favorite Graphic 45 collection, Raining Cats and Dogs.  I've layered lots of fussy cut elements on this layout.




Here you can see how I've popped up the many fussy cut elements with foam tape.

My third and fourth projects are tags.  I really love to make tags, they are such fun little works of art.  

This tag was done with the Deluxe Collector's Edition of Times Nouveau.


  If you'd like to make this tag, I have a Snapguide tutorial on it.



My tags often have beads on them, I think they are so fun! I used some G45 Washi tape down the center of this tag along with some dots masking on the base layer.



My last project is the tag done with the fabulous Typography collection.  Typography is just the best for tag and card making with its great quotes and images.



You can see how the layers are popped up with foam in this photo.

I made the sunflower vine you see here and below is a video tutorial for making this vine.



Thank you so much for taking the time to view my video and for all the words of encouragement many of you left on my first audition post.  I sincerely appreciate it so much!

Best of luck to the other 24 candidates.  You are all so talented and awe inspiring!

  13. I've listened and watched, drooled and pinned! Your work is not only amazing but you share, and teach us so much as well. The flower tutorials are fabulous - love, love, love, the sunflower vine!

    I think my favorite project is the cookbook, because I've heard you talk about your garden so often, and the other girls have raved about your preserves... so this project seems so fitting for you! You have taken canned preserve gifts to a whole other level.

    Best wishes! Fingers and toes are crossed for you!!
