Graphic 45 2018 Brand Ambassador Audition

Hello Crafty Friends.

Today is a special day at I'm a Little Teapot: this post is my audition for the Graphic 45 2018 Ambassador Team!  I am a huge cheerleader for Graphic 45.  I love using their product on my crafty projects as the paper collections are full of beautiful, timeless patterns that make my heart smile.  Their albums make it simple to create gorgeous Graphic 45 projects and I adore their metal embellishments.  And now, the cherry on top: they have metal dies!  As you can probably guess, I am happy and honored to try out to be a Brand Ambassador.

Below are two projects I would like to submit for the Brand Ambassador Audition.  I do hope you enjoy the projects as much as I enjoyed making them!

Project 1: Enchanted Forest album

For my first project I would like to share an album created using Graphic 45's Enchanted Forest collection, Artisan Style collection and Kraft album.  Below are photos from the album.  Also shared is a video of the album showing all of the pocket inserts and other details.

Project 2: Seasons fancy fold card with instructions

For my second project, I would like to share an easy to make fancy fold card using the Seasons paper collection:

The card is fun to make and you will find yourself making several!  Let's jump right in...

Materials list (all dimensions in inches):
Seasons 8 x 8 pages Spring and Spring Collective
5 x 12 card stock for base (purple)
3 x 4.25 card stock (yellow)
3.75 x 4.75 ivory patterned paper (there are many ivory Graphic 45 choices) or card stock
Double sided foam tape
Double sided tape
Liquid adhesive
Fussy cutting scissors
Optional: ink or metallic markers for edging, embellishments

Instructions (all dimensions in inches):
  1. Cut four 1.75 x 4.75 rectangles from back of Spring paper.  (Optional: apply ink or metallic marker to edges.)
  2. Cut out required images from Spring Collective.  You will need the postage stamp row and the Spring image.
  3. Cut postage row to 3.75 and mount to the 3.75 x 4.75 ivory patterned paper.  (Optional: apply ink of metallic marker to edges.)
  4. Create card base: Score purple card stock at 4 and 8.  Flip paper over and score at 2 and 10.  Fold as shown.
  5. Mount rectangles from Step 1 to card base as shown.
  6. Mount ivory assembly from Step 3 to inside as shown.
  7. Mount Spring image to yellow card stock using double sided foam tape.
  8. Apply double sided tape to one half of the Spring image.  (You want the image to mount on the left side of the card front.)
  9. Mount to card front.
  10. Embellish as desired.  Bows and butterflies are always beautiful!
  11. Sit back and smile at your completed first double fold gate card!

Thank you so much for stopping by!  I do hope you enjoyed both projects. Creating with Graphic 45 product is a pleasure and I really appreciate you stopping by my little place in the blogosphere!
