I have enjoyed being a Graphic 45 Brand Ambassador for 2020 – 2021. Last month was my last post for the cycle. I did enjoy my time making projects for Graphic 45, even though I had some hiccups for the last 3 months. I think I still did pretty good though. This post is just highlighting my projects and my time as a Brand Ambassador. Please check out my “Shop” page for kits, as many are still available for some of the projects listed below and check out my “Tutorial” page, as I have a few free tutorials I made for G45.
My very first project:
This project uses Graphic 45’s Farmhouse paper collection and I LOVE this collection. The plaid papers in the collection are my favorite. The album I created was called Hook-N-Ladder and I actually created this page style back in 2017 in my Pockety Pocket Mini Album. The Pocket album had a few page styles and one of them was the Hook-N-Ladder. I just altered the measurements a bit and made it the main focus of this album. I very much enjoyed creating it.

DIVIDER FOLDER MINI ALBUM
This project has me come up with interesting ways to decorate and make interactive elements on a base page that was a folder. I found some interesting folders at Staples that was a divider with tabs on the dividers. I really liked this project, but it did not get much attention. You never really know what people will like and not like. I still have kits for this project.

MEMORY KEEPERS MINI ALBUM
This project had a lot of fussing cutting, but the papers were so pretty and had elements you just wanted to cut out. The paper was Lost in Paradise and I love how the cover turned out.

FAIRIE WINGS ATC MATCHBOOK BOX AND ATC ALBUM
The Fairie Wings paper was so pretty and the fairies in the collection were so cute. This project was just me decorating Graphic 45’s ATC Matchbook Box and ATC Album with the Fairie Wings paper. It was a fun little project.

MEDALLION CARDS AND TAGS
This project was mostly about how to make medallions with Graphic 45 metal die corner pieces. The corners make some really neat designs you can put on cards, tags or albums. They come in handy to add a detail or two.

DETACHABLE (SUPPLEMENTAL) PAGES MINI ALBUM
I created my Detachable Pages Mini Album before I became a brand ambassador, but it was a huge success. You can remove the pages from the album. For this project I just created two more page styles so you have a little more diversity with the project. I made three different size mini albums with this type of removable pages, and for some reason I want to make another, but unsure if people would want another one.

LEVELED UP – BOARD BOOK
This project was a level up project, which means you take a Club 45 project and make it your own. This one levels up Annette Green’s Board Book. This album was fun and easy to make.

CABIN AND WOODLAND MINI ALBUM
This is a 3D project wherein I made a Cabin where the roof opens up to reveal a mini album inside. I enjoyed making the cabin. Tim Holtz has a 3D texture wood grain texture fade that was perfect for this project. As a substitute, Lawn Fawn has wood grain paper, which would work pretty great for the Cabin.

CHRISTMAS TIME CARDS
Steampunk is one of my favorite themes. I made cards using Graphic 45 gear die. These were fun to make.

WOODLAND FRIENDS TAGS
These tags were fun to make and the paper was super cute.

NATURE NOTEBOOK CARDS
Cards using graphic 45 metal dies and creating negative space. I think the Bee Card is my favorite.

WALLET FOLD ENVELOPE ALBUM AND BOX
This is another level up project. Annette Green made some fun and easy Wallet Fold Envelope Album and as my level up portion, I created a box to hold three albums.

TROPICAL TRAVEL JOURNAL
This project was me decorating and bringing a little mixed media to Graphic 45 Travel Journals. It was fun to decorate.

BIRTHDAY BRAG BOOK, CARD AND GIFT BAG
This project was just an easy going mini album that can be made pretty quickly. Brag books are always fun to make.

INTERACTIVE SLIMLINE CARDS
This was another level up project. I used Ginger Ropp’s Slimline Cards, which is pretty awesome and I added a pop-up feature on the inside.

There it is….my time with Graphic 45. I am not going to stop making Graphic 45 projects. However, I do have to take a break from making any type of large projects as I am moving. So I will have to pack up my craft room and do not know how long it will take me to start making projects and mini albums again. If you don’t know, my husband got a new job in Georgia. I am in Florida. So now we need to move, but it’s taking time to look for a house, especially since we are apart. In the meantime, I have been making Lawn Fawn cards and I might make some small, less time-consuming projects until I officially pack up my room.
The future is bright, can’t wait to see what is next for me.
