Graphic 45 Announcement....and Little Darlings Stamp Projects!

Graphic 45 announced the 2012 Design Team Call today!!!! I hope to see some of my favorite peeps apply! I've been on the team for the past two years and it's been an amazing experience! I have loved every second of it.

You will note that the new team rules say that team members may only be on the team for 2 years in a row....which made me sooooo unhappy! However, the two team members (Jane and myself) who have been on the team for the past two years were told that the NEW rule starts with the 2011 team....meaning I may apply again! WHEW! Talk about heart failure!!!

Get your paper ready! You will never regret applying, trust me on that!

Now...I have more Hampton Art/Graphic 45 Stamps projects to show you. This time it's Little Darlings!

The printers tray was in the Hampton Art Booth at CHA, and appears in the NEW Hampton Art Catalog. I used Graphic 45 Little Darlings stamps and Once Upon a Springtime, Le' Romantique, and Baby to Bride papers.

The little darling in the photos is my 16 year old daughter, Laura. She was (and still is) adorable! However, she hates pink. Too bad! {evil laughter here}

For each window in the 7Gypsies Printers Tray, I either used a black and white photo or a little mini collection. It was fun stamping and choosing little items for this project!

I filled some little glass jars with glitter and beads. Do you love it?!

The Scrabble tiles spell out baby's name.

I pretty much poked around in all my bins for all little pink items for this project.

I stamped the stork and colored the image with Copics, then added glitter to the feathers!

Love the mini thread spools. I wrapped them with baker's twine. Those pins are just fantastic. I cut them down so that they would fit the scale of the spools.

I created a few cards also, using the Little Darlings stamps and more Once Upon a Springtime papers. The next two cards were also at the Hampton Art booth and are in the new catty. (I hope my projects don't become divas due to all of this exposure!!!)

And some blue so the boys won't be left out!

Baby to Bride papers. I know, this is an OLD line, but I love it!

I adore that baby buggy. Or pram, as my UK and Aussie pals would say!

For this card, I've twisted it up. The PAPERS are from Little Darlings and the stamp is from An ABC Primer! I just love mixing my collections! I made this card for a display board that was on the table during my Graphic 45 Demo on January 31st. (If you saw my demo, give a shout out!)

Is this YUM or what?!

This last card was also from my demo boards. I used Little Darlings stamps and NO printed paper. You read that right!!! Just G45 inks and stamps and cardstock. The stamps CAN stand alone! Trust me!

Ok, that's it for today. No supply list because I am too lazy today. It's way too long! Tomorrow I'll show you the Tropical Travelogue stuff I made for Hampton Art. I am sure in the next few weeks I'll be able to show the projects I made for the Graphic 45 booth!
