Graphic 45 Introduction - 2012 Submission Projects

I hope you drop on by the Graphic 45 Blog today to see my Reveal for the 2012 Design Team! I cannot tell you how happy I am to be part of this amazing company for one more year! I love working with the products, and after three years, I feel like part of the G45 Family!

I made three brand new projects for the final round of the competition. I knew I had to "bring it" for this last round! Here is a little slide show I put together! Enjoy!

I also have a few photos to share, since the slide show may not be everyone's cup of tea!

My first project is an altered 5x5 box and mini album, using the Little Darlings collection.

I adore this paper collection. It's so soft and pretty. The last flap of my box has a small envie that is perfect to hold a gift card for baby. I cut down one of the pages from an envelope staples to make it. (See how smart I am?!)

I altered the little mini that comes with the box. Super cute for a baby girl.

Lots of tags. My favorite!

My second project is an altered wooden box. I got the box at the craft store for a few bucks. I also purchased some wooden feet for it. I used Olde Curiosity Shoppe and Communique collections for this project.

Here is a closeup of the rolled flowers I made from the paper.

My last project is a 12x12 layout, using Le' Romantique and Steampunk Debutant collections. ETA: I also used some items form the Olde Curiosity Shoppe Collection!

I used a photo of my husband and me, taken in London. You can see the Eye in the background, sort of. The day was really overcast, but it's there!

I had more fun making this page than I've had in AGES! I love everything about it, and it is now hanging in my studio! I look at it all the time!

I hope you enjoyed my reveal day. I can't wait to get busy on my 2012 projects! Especially with the new collections coming soon: Happy Haunting and A Ladies' Diary.

I plan to share more about these projects, with some tutorials in three other posts. If you want the supply lists and such, you will need to wait for those posts. I will work them in when I have "free days" this month!
