"Graphic 45 Design Team 2016 Audition"

Goodmorning lovelies, 
Oh wow how I love dreaming to be on this amazing design team! 
Since I can remember I am using Graphic 45 papers for different projects but mostly layouts. When I was scrolling through Facebook and the Graphic 45 blog I saw that the DT call was up and my heart jumped out off place for a bit hihihi...I know that the DT call is around by birthday every year so that was not a surprise but still very exciting.
2016 DT poster FINAL
I really love all the new products of Graphic 45,
 like the pretty window shadow boxes, ATC book boxes and all the staples not to forget the pretty new paper collections like: Gilded Lily {which is just beautiful},
Voyage Beneath the Sea"{which go great with some of the chipboard pieces on my other DT}, Enchanted Forest and Cityscapes.
But I have to admit I do love the older collections more that's why I really like that Graphic 45 is making the Deluxe Collector's Edition Packs.
Because that lets me play again with "A ladies diary", Once upon a springtime and hopefully they will make a Deluxe Collector's Edition Pack of my all time favorite collection "Olde Curiosity Shoppe"too.
It's not that I don't like their newer collections "REALLY BELIEVE ME" but I am a romantic scrapper and I totally love the softer toned papers sooo much, that is in conflict with my earlier remark about my favorite collection lol.... 
I am very excited about this design team call and hopefully you all like my work! And I will go through to the next round I just have to keep my fingers crossed.   
This is my blogpost for the Graphic 45 Design Team 2016 Audition!
Project 1: using "Enchanted Forest"
"True Love Never Grows Old"layout 
This layout I made today with the DT call in mind and as my work for Cheery Lynn Designs. This collection is truly beautiful I really love the colors and pretty designs. On the left I used a buckle which I absolutely adore to use. Let's have a closer look: 

Project 2: using "Voyage Beneath the Sea"
"Imagine" card

This card I made for my DT work at Creative Embellishments. I wanted to use orange & aqua because I think that they look amazing together. I also didn't want to make the usual card with the pictures in this collection. I really wanted to make something different more like a spring card, that leaves you over to your own imagination kind of mysterious {hope that worked lol} 
Project 3: using "Mon Amour"
"Forever Mine"layout 
This layout was also made for Cheery Lynn Designs and this time I didn't whetted & wrinkled my flowers I just curled them and added them on top of each other several times. For this layout I used a picture of hubby and I a while back in time. I really love the colors of this collection it's very romantic. Let's look closer:

Project 4: using "Olde Curiosity Shoppe"& "Sweet Sentiments"
"Wishing you Happiness" & "Now and Forever"tags 
I made these tags out of Graphic 45 packaging! I always hoard them to use them later on for layouts or this time for these tags. As you can see I am also a hugh fan of Petaloo flowers! If you follow the Graphic 45 & Petaloo blog you know that they work together a lot which I think is wonderful. 
Project 5: using "Gilded Lily"
"Beautiful and Sweet Girl"layout 
This layout I made for my Cheery Lynn Designs DT work {with in mind this DT call} so all the flowers are handmade with their beautiful flower dies! For this layout I used a couple of Graphic 45 metal pieces as you can see in the centers of my flowers and as a frame for the word "girl"! Also I used a little key in the upper right corner underneath my flower cluster "Oh how I love those pretty key's"Let's have a closer look: 

I couldn't just send in just three sorry Diane, Charee, Aimee and the rest off the Graphic 45 staff.
For the first round they asked us to show three projects and a tutorial! I wish I was as good in making a video as all of you are that are trying to make the team, but I have to say I am not! I do make tutorials but I only photo tutorials for now ;-) I would be so lucky, honored and happy to become one of Graphic 45's designers I think I will faint if it's me lol 
This tutorial is not with Graphic 45 papers sorry!

Thank you so much for visiting my blog today and I wish all the other applicants the best of luck! I would also like to thank the Graphic 45 family for this wonderful opportunity..
Have a happy, scrappy and sunny day.....
