Graphic 45

My Graphic 45 Design team "try out". Sadly I did not make it but thought I would share my entries.
Look Here for the 2011 G45 List.

Entry#1  I used the (Le'Cirque Collection) on this display box. I think this turned out so fun!  Aunt Hatties baubled necklace came out of the everything drawer to play.

Entry #2  From the (Domestic Goddess Collection) This card is straight from the garden or my garden as I made the flowers myself with raw material from the fabric store.
Entry#3  I used the new (Curtain Call ) for a tag I will title the Moulin Rouge. I got to use the new stamps on this item and was delighted to find it in our area. The ribbons and flowers I made myself using regular material bought from the fabric store and her skirt I made from scrunching up paper over and over till pliable. The bodice stamp is one of my favorites as you will see and I simply stitched it with thread to make the strings.
Entry#4 is my Le' Cirque Mini Album. I bought some premade envelopes (that were seconds) and recut them to fit my needs. I used corrugated cardboard, bobbles, ribbon and attachments of all sorts and again Auntie Hatties ugly baubles again helped with the big top. 
Entry #5 Is done in the (Domestic Goddess Collection) using a 6.75x8.75configurations box. I made the bow out of torn tea dyed muslin and the bauble I stamped a transparency sheet and attached with brads to the metal tag. The little towels were sewn and laced with the same paper used for the cabinets. 
Entry #6 is a 4x8" tag made from the new Le'Cirque Collection.
Entry# 7 Is the Fairy.She stands a total of 11.5" tall and is 10" wide. She was made using the ( Once Upon A Springtime Collection). I have made other versions of her and since they seemed to be so well liked I have added one to my entry only I spruced her up a little.
Entry#8 Is the Le'Romantique Collection again. This layout is of my wedding and the inevitable moment you realize as a bride that No matter what you planned....if disaster hits' it's to late!

Entry # 9-10 This card and Configurations box was made using the Le'Romantique Collections.
Entry#11  These Fairy Lanterns were made from the (Once Upon A Springtime Collection) the flower embellishments are made with a series of punches and accented with ribbon for leaves.

 Entry # 12 I did this altered/recycled book with cereal boxes and the Graphic 45 ( Christmas Past Collection) We used grunge paper to make the belts and tapestry for the back and buttons along with a snow pen for accents . The baubles used the tags paper that is featured in the line along with the stamps used on the hand written " quill penned" letters to Santa.

 Entry #13  I did this in October using the (Hallowe'en  in Wonderland ) line by Graphic 45. It was my first paper bag book of this type. The interesting part was the side pieces that covered the binding. I  scored the paper repeatedly every 1/8 " to get the pliability along with a natural curve to the binding. The small bottle is labeled "drink me" .
