Graphic 45 Design Team 2013 Audition

 Here it is, my Graphic 45 Design Team Audition.  My first piece is a two page layout featuring the beautiful Place in Time Collection.

My next piece is a Nutcracker Suite candy plate.  It was featured on the G45 blog last October as part of a cross promotion with Connie Crystal.  At that time, I posted an abbreviated photo tutorial as well.
Next, I have a Fairy Wreath.  It features the Once Upon a Springtime Collection and stamps as well as some stamps from another company.  I made 3D features by stacking fussy cut paper flowers and adhering them to each other with wire and crystals.
A slightly older piece is this rehabbed frame that I purchased from a thrift shop.  I used the By the Sea collection.  I scanned and traced the seahorse from one of the papers in the collection using my Silhouette Machine.
An even older piece (proving that I have been a fan for awhile) is this recipe box.  It uses one of the older Christmas collections.  I was particularly proud of this piece because it was the subject of a highly successful class that I created and taught at the scrapbook store where I used to work.

Although most of my projects are more complicated, I do enjoy making the occasional card, like this one from the Botanica Bella Collection.

And here is a Graphic 45 Staples Box that I decorated with Steampunk Debutante and the Circus Collection.  This was created for an Art Glitter Graphic 45 cross promotion.
Finally (and I know this makes eight), I have a recent scrapbook page that I created using Bird Song.
I hope you enjoyed my audition pieces.  I would just be so honored if I could make the team.  Wish me luck!
