Graphic 45 Design Team 2012 Audition

I have talked myself into this, and out of it a dozen times in the last week and a half LOL   I adore Graphic 45 Products!  I bought my first piece of G45 paper two years ago (Steampunk Debutante) and it took months before I'd cut it. It was just so beautiful I was happy to just admire it.  Crazy? Nope, not to fellow Paper lovers. Using that first piece of paper got me hooked big time. I've made many items with G45 papers since then, sadly I gave many away as gifts without taking photos. DOH!  Below are some photos of some my favorite recent pieces.

Mini Legal Pad Cover:

I created it using Graphic 45's gorgeous Tropical Travelogue Collection

Travel Journal:

The Travel Journal was also made with Tropical Travelogue

ABC Primer Book:

Made with the ABC Primer Collection. The inside of the book is lined Kraft paper.

Home Card:

A simple card with a sentiment that speaks volumes.  I used the Magic of Oz Collection and Stamp

Fairy Tag:

I used the Once Upon a Springtime Collection with lots of fun fussy cutting.

My Grandpa, My Hero:

For this Layout I used papers from  Communique, On The Boardwalk, and Tropical Travelogue

Thank you for looking!  Good Luck to all that apply and Thank you Graphic 45 for the awesome products!

Mini Travel Album

Please click on the image to see it in full size. 
I'm going to use the brighter pages from the G45 Tropical Travelogue Collection to make another mini album.

I'm entering this into the Simon Says Stamp and Show anything goes Challenge.

Thanks for looking!

Who Loves Ya, Baby?

I do!!!
Happy Valentine's Day Everyone!  
I made this Card for my Honey and am submitting it to the StudioL3 Challenge . I adore Tim's Valentine goodies, I've ordered his Love Struck Die and his Embossing Folder but they haven't arrived yet, however I do have his luscious Love Struck Stamp Set and used them along with his Retro Paper Stash to create this card. Don't you just love these stamps?!  I used Fired Brick Distress Ink and Ranger's Clear Embossing Powder on the Ticket and Heart. I used Archival Jet Black Ink and Ranger's Black Distressing Powder on the "To My Valentine" stamp.  Since I made it for my Husband, I kept it fairly simple..he's not much into a bunch of lace and flowers and distressing LOL After my Husband went to bed last night I placed the card on his computer keyboard, this morning he sat down with his coffee to read emails and found it. He like it very much :-) 
Have Ya'll seen the latest on Tim's Blog?  How exciting is that?  I love creating Tags along with Tim!

I am also submitting this Card to the InspirationEmporium Blog Put a Heart on it Challenge.

Thanks for looking!
