This post is about what this year (2019) involved and what is to come next year.  It has been a great year and I can’t wait to see what is next for the year to come.

First let me talk about what is to come.  This year is going to be busy for me as I’m GETTING MARRIED.  The wedding is in April so my main focus will be that for the beginning of the year.  So projects might be few and far between in the beginning of the year.  Or I might make simple projects that will not require a lot of time and effort.  In addition to my wedding, I have a large event at the end of July to prepare for.  This event is not paper crafting related.  I’m actually going to be assisting my future husband as a vendor at LeakyCon in Orlando, Florida.  LeakyCon is a Harry Potter Convention.  I will need to focus on that in July.

I do have more exciting news.  I was offered a design team position with a new company (new to me) that is not based in the United States and I have accepted.  More information to come on that venture once I have it.  I will of course apply for Graphic 45 Design Team as I do every year.  Their audition is usually in April (so that is going to be a very busy month for me).  That’s it on the news front for now.

Time to reflect on the year…

I created different flowers using Graphic 45’s Flower Metal Die, which I made little gift bags to put the flowers on. I hope Graphic 45 comes out with more dies in the future. I really enjoyed the ones that came out.

Detachable Pages Mini Album
The introduction of removable pages. I love this new binding system where the pages are removable from binding pockets. It turned out really awesome and I made a second album with a similar binding and I have another album in the design process for a larger binding system, but I am still working on that one.

Detachable Pages II Mini Album

This album is 5 1/4 x 7″ with 6 removable pages.  This binding system has 2 additional pages than the first and more compact, but the pages are small.  As mentioned above, I am currently designing another binding system that is larger, but the same concept.
