Graphic 45 Design Team 2014 Audition

It would be an under estimate to say this will be my favourite post this year so far. I have waited a long 12 months for the 2014 graphic 45 design team call to arrive. 
I would like to share my creations for this years

  
Design team submission, first round. I hope you enjoy and find inspiration in the projects 
I have created over the last year.

Project one : Mother Goose
Puzzle Box
This project was inspired from a children's puzzle book from my son benjamin.
Mother goose was perfect to create these children's puzzles.







 


Project two : French Country 
Barn
This project was created early in the last 12 months but I had to include it as I love the theme 
and the collection. Especially the colours and imagery. 









Project three : Couture
Shadow Box Mini 
Album
I love this cute  mini and couture is a very stylish collection and was a great range to 
create my shadow box and pages.







Project four : Place in Time 
Birthday Book
These layouts are some of the months from the completion of my birthday book in 2013.
I personally love the place in time collection and its versatility. 






Project five : Little Darlings
Bay Chest
One of my favourite projects of the last 12 months. It was made from my favourite collection
and was created to hold a new born photo of each of my seven children.





 






Project Six : Typography, Bohemian bazaar 
& Steampunk spells Tags
Tags are one of my favourite creative platforms and all graphic 45 collections have great 
application when tag making, as these three examples demonstrate.














Project Seven : Secret Garden 
Ark
A very soft and collection give this ark a stylish appearance 
but it still has a whimsical feel








Project Eight : Mother Goose 
Pocket Scrapping 
 A fairly new trend in scrap booking and graphic 45 papers and embellishments 
are perfect for this style. 







Project Nine : 12 Days of Christmas
Portmanteau 
A christmas themed decor piece that will take pride of place in my christmas display this year







Project Ten : Steampunk Spells
Checkers Set
This project was a companion piece to the mother goose puzzles. Steampunk spells was a perfect collection for this game.










Project Eleven : Secret Garden
Picture Window
A dedicated album to two of my daughters. It is also a representation of my layout style. I love the floral components of secret garden and I have carried this through out the whole album 


 





 





 






Project Twelve : Typography
Mini Album
I made my typography a very linear album and this gave it a clean crisp feel. This collection is very structured in my opinion and I love the bold colour palette.

 







Project Thirteen : Olde Curiosity shoppe
Steampunk Spells Printer Tray
This is my first printer tray project and I love this style of paper craft. The specific components of graphic 45 collections are perfect for these projects. Especially the chip board elements.







I would like to thank graphic 45 for this opportunity to apply for their design. And to
all the other talented applicants i wish them best of luck and 
hope there scrap dreams come true.

Happy Scrapping

Andrew

  4. I came here to say awesome project for Craft Hoarders Anonymous and was pleasantly surprised to see this! First off, I like you wait each year for this time :) G45 is by far my fave company. I am almost done with my submissions and then I just hold my breath and pray. There are so many amazing artists out there that it's tough to whittle it down to twelve so I don't beat myself up when another year passes. I will tell you this, I have NO doubt you are on their new team for this call Andrew. Everything you do is off the chain as we say in America :) I will say good luck to you, but I promise, it's not needed, I will be back to congratulate you.

    Oh, and as a mom of six, the baby box is just a great idea, I just might steal it ;)

  7. Ok, I am not sure I know enough verbs to tell you how amazing I think these projects are! After each one I was saying, "Oh, that's my favorite!" Really, Andrew, I am still not over the fact that you have 7 kids, let alone figure out when you have time to do all this! These projects are so phenomenal. I love your style and use of the chipboard elements, flowers, gears, metal feet and knobs. Oh everything. I am rooting and praying for you to get a spot this year. You know I am a huge fan! (I am going to admit, I shed a tear when I saw that baby box!) Best Wishes, my friend!
