Graphic 45 Special Projects Designer!

If you are looking for the Heartfelt Creations Wednesday post, please click HERE.

Graphic 45 has just finished up announcing the NEW 2015-2016 Design Team! Today they are introducing the Special Project Designers, Annette Green and little ol' me! 

If you have followed my blog for any length of time, you know that I LOVE Graphic 45 papers! I started out with Graphic 45 on the 2010-2011 design team. They kept me on for the 2011-2012 and the 2012-2013 design teams! In the spring of 2013 I was asked to become a Special Projects Designer. I had to step down from my position in December 2013 due to a back injury, however in November 2014 they once again asked me to come on board as a Special Projects Designer! I have been working "behind the scenes" since then! Oh Happy Day!

For 2015, my job is to create a project sheet each month using the Time to Flourish Collection. I create step-by-step directions for making two cards and two tags each month! These sheets go to the Retailer Market to enable your local stores to teach Graphic 45 classes for their customers. Once the current month has passed, I am able to share the project sheets with my Readers! For the currently available project sheets, see the list below.


June will be coming shortly! The Retailers already have the July projects, and I just sent in the August tutorials on Monday! I am sure you will have fun creating! 

Here are a few highlights for you of the January - May projects: 


Graphic 45 does ask me to create other things from time to time, when they need something extra. Here is a peeky at a few more things I've made so far this year.

I created this card and the next three for Winter CHA using the new lines released then, Home Sweet Home, Precious Memories, and Artisan Style.

This spring, I "re-imagined" the two baby cards and taught them as a charity card class, along with two cards using the Mother Goose Collection. I taught a total of 63 ladies and gave out 12 additional kits...yes that is 75 kits!

Graphic 45 sends me the odd box of goodies now and again, to enable me to create projects for my blog or to design my own classes, and so forth.

Mini using the Raining Cats and Dogs Collection.
Layout using the Come Away with Me collection.

Graphic 45 is a wonderful company to work with and the whole team is awesome! I cannot say enough good things about them! I am blessed to be able to work for them in this capacity. Just so they know...I am NEVER leaving!
