Graphic 45 Design Team 2013 Audition

Hey there everyone and thanks for stopping by today.  Welcome to my Graphic 45 Design Team 2013 Audition.  When I first saw this call come out I was super excited and knew that I wanted to give this call a shot for sure.  If you love Graphic 45 products you should can read more about the call HERE on the Graphic 45 blog.

This post is going to be a little on the long side but I don't want to leave anything out.  I hope that my projects inspire you and you have any questions about anything I created or how I did something please send me an email to . Well grab some coffee, sit back and enjoy!

My first project I created using the Place In Time line.  Can I just tell you how much I LOVE this line and that you can do with it.  Once I got my hands on the new fabulous tags....well the project was on!  I created this tag book using a mixture of the regular & large tag albums, along with some of the product packaging.

This tag album is super chunky and I totally love that, here is a side view for you.

There are alot of embllieshments that I used on this tag album and I will put a supply list at the end of the tag photos for you.

Advantus - Metal Clock, Grunge Paper
Graphic 45 Place In Time Collection
Graphic 45 Kraft Reflections (Bed Of Roses & Straight To The Point)

  1. Stacy Congrats, amazing job! Good luck to you....your work is fab!

  2. Every single one of these projects are fantastic Stacey! Great job!

  3. Popping in to wish you MUCH LUCK & LOVE!!! Great projects - my favorite has to be that altered box <3 Fingers crossed! xo

  4. Good luck with your projects. They are wonderful and love the look of them all. The box is darling.

  5. Wow! Awesome projects, Stacy! Love them all! How could they not pick you to be on their design team?

  6. Stacy, love 'em all, you are so talented! What a privilege to know you, see your art in person, and to be able to take your classes!

    If the Graphics Arts team is reading comments, let me say that Stacy is one of the best teachers I’ve ever had, and that is saying a lot – I’ve taken hundreds of classes over the years. She is always prompt and completely prepared, her classes are fun and she makes certain everyone gets the help they need. Her samples are on display well in advance of her classes, which means shoppers see them and sign up. Add this to her gift of creativity, and you won’t find anyone better with whom to work!

  7. This design is wicked! You certainly know how to keep a reader entertained.

    Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved
    to start my own blog (well, almost...HaHa!) Wonderful job.
