Hello crafty friends! As you might know, the Graphic 45 folks are holding a design team call. As I am smitten with their papers I just have to throw my hat in the ring! In this post I am showing brand new Graphic 45 projects (I've been busy!) as well as one or two you've already seen. So grab a cuppa and walk with me through the beauty that is Graphic 45.
My first projects are greeting cards made with An ABC Primer and a combination of Renaissance Faire and Curtain Call.

Renaissance Faire and Curtain Call
The next two projects are re-purposed tins - one from Altoids and the other is the bottom half of a gift card tin. The Christmas (Altoids) tin includes paper from Christmas Emporium and was made for a vintage Christmas-themed swap on Craftster.org.
This shadowbox tin was made with the fanciful Once Upon a Springtime papers.
Next is the little calendar that hangs right above my work space. She's made with Fashionista Le Fleur paper.
My favorite flower is a red poppy and even though this red sweetheart isn't really a poppy I'm imagining she is (just because I can!). This 5"x7" canvas was made using beautiful Botanicabella.
My final project is a 6"x7" album made with the gorgeous Tropical Travelogue line. Oh how I love this collection!

Wow, seven projects in all! Thanks so much for following along with me. I know this was an image-heavy post, but you know how important details are to me.
Next Friday, March 2nd, the Graphic 45 team will announce their Top 30 applicants from the hundreds I think they will receive. Competition is fierce and the crafty skills "out there" are quite impressive. After that announcement the Top 30 have a few weeks to get 3 projects in the hands of the G45 team for some down and dirty inspection. We all know that our projects always seem to be better in person than in photos, right? Can you imagine a conference room bursting with all those fabulous submissions? Oh, to be a fly on those walls!
I've got fingers crossed for luck that I will make it to the final round. I'm already noodling away at ideas for new projects. I can't help it - these papers are so inspiring! Maybe they can be final round submissions. A girl can hope, right? *wink* Wish me luck!
