Graphic 45 Design Team 2012 Audition

It's that time of year again - Graphic 45 is having another design team call!  I absolutely love all of their papers, which are very well-suited to my design style, so I thought I would give it a go this year.  As part of the application process, we are to post our submissions on our blogs.  Here are the projects I am submitting:

Thank you to Graphic 45 for your consideration of me becoming a member of your design team this year!

Say What?!?!?!

Holy cow!  I don't believe it!  I posted my "Gypsy Market" kit for sale so late last night I was nodding off at my computer...AND it sold by the time I woke up this morning!

If you caught a glimpse of the video and are disappointed that you didn't get to it fast enough...don't worry.  I will be creating more kits in the future.  I'm thinking my next project will be using the 7 Gypsies "Off the Wall" paper, and I just may be able to create more than one kit for sale.

Like I said in one of my previous posts, this is a new venture for me.  I will slowly ramp up and see how it goes.  Thank you to everyone for their very kind comments and support :)


Gypsy Market Mini Album & Kit For Sale...

I've had some feedback on the Moulin Rouge kit that I posted for sale last month, and would like to try something a little different this month.  I put together another mini album kit using the absolutely scrumptious 7 Gypsies "Gypsy Market" paper stash...BUT, this time I created 2 kits, and used one to build my own album.  I made the album using the small Michaels "Celebrate It" bags, and based the design on Laura Denison's "fold over paper bag" mini album with her "stack the deck" binding method.  Check it out:

You can view the full album by clicking on the following link and watching my YouTube video of the mini:

If you're at all interested in purchasing the kit I have available, please click on the "Patterns & Such" tab at the top of this page.  A detailed description and photos of what is available in the kit will be given there.  In addition to the supplies for the kit, I will email a pdf document with detailed pictures of my completed mini album if you're looking for a little extra inspiration.  I will not be including instructions on how to build the album itself, as it is not my original design.  If you're looking for help on building the pages and binding system, please go check out Laura's videos by clicking on the following links.
