Graphic 45 Design Team Audition 2016

I was so excited to see this!! I have been waiting for this opportunity since my very first G45 paper purchase!! I fell in love with the rich, vibrant color palettes used on these beautiful papers immediately and I have been a fan ever since. To design for such a wonderful company would be an honor and a dream come true!! Although I am sure there are many entries I had to at least give this a go! I hope you enjoy my creations!!


My first project is a re-purposed cigar box. For this I used the Mon Amour collection from Graphic 45. I also made a small flip book and tag that fit neatly inside the box!

My Next project was actually my very first venture using the Graphic 45 papers. I have loved them ever since! This Halloween shadowbox was created using the Rare Oddities collection.


And my last project is a card created using the new Voyage Beneath The Sea collection..This paper collection is my favorite so far, It is just beautiful. I have also placed a tutorial for this project below.
