Graphic 45 Design Team Audition 2016

Hello everyone!

Yesterday I've got an e-mail from my subscription to 'Graphic 45' blog and my heart started to beat faster when I saw the title: "Announcing the 2016 Graphic 45 Design Team Call". Do I dare?


I have started 'to play with paper' a little more than 3 years ago and I would have never thought back then, that one day I would be creating cards for such amazing companies like La-La Land Crafts, C.C.Designs, LDRS Creative, Mo Manning Digital Pencil, I Am Roses... Today I can say that a few of my dreams already came true and I'm endlessly thrilled and honored.

If I look at my paper crafting journey as a career, I'd say that joining the Graphic 45 Design Team is definitely an aim that I want to achieve, a step on the stair which I want to climb.

During the past few years I've created projects which were not 'card-related' (yes, usually I create a lot of cards for the Design Teams I'm on right now). Some of them featured papers from Graphic 45 and some did not. In this post I would like to cast a retrospective look at several of them.

Almost each one of the projects is accompanied with either a written or a video tutorial, which I absolutely love to create.

I will start from the recent projects and move to the older ones.

My personal pride is a Purse Mini Album. I created it in two sizes and for the smaller version I have a free video tutorial and video overview of the bigger purse album.

 

 

 

Then I have a Vintage Style Suitcase with a Drawer Album. I created it in two versions - one is using plain kraft papers and the second - papers from Prima. I have a free tutorial for this project on my You Tube Channel.







The next is a Suitcase Mini Album which is featuring the Kraft Reflections collection from Graphic45. I have a video walk-through on this album, as well as a video with the instructions on how to create a page like in the album and how to put together the handle.










And a Ticket-Shaped Mini Album, with a tutorial:





One more project featuring Graphic 45 "Time To Celebrate" paper collection is a hexagon box with a set of cards. A tutorial for creating a hexagon box from scratch out of chipboard is available on my You Tube channel.




I also have a video presentation of this set:


The next is Bird Song Mini Album with lots of interactive elements inside. I have a quick flip-through video of it on my You Tube channel.

 

 

An additional one is a flip book created with the 'Bird Song' paper collection as well:
You can view the full post about it here and a flip-through video showing how the flip mechanism works here:





And finally, I cannot help sharing my first ever mini album done with the Graphic 45 'Steampunk Spells' papers back in 2013. It's very special to me :)






That must be it. Will hold my breath and keep the fingers crossed now.

Thanks for reading and viewing up to this point :)



Hugs,
Alexandra
