Graphic 45 Design Team Audition-Round 2

Making round two has been an absolute dream come true. I have had the biggest smile plastered across my face from the very moment I found out.

 For round two I decided to make three projects that represented me as a designer. For this I choose two altered projects and a card.


 For my first project I was inspired to do an altered bottle after watching the movie Snow White. I am a HUGE Disney fan so Disney movies are heavy in the rotation when I put in a movie while I craft. I was inspired by the scene where the evil queen is mixing up her poison and you see all the bottles, melted candles, and cobwebs everywhere. Since I collect old bottles this felt like the perfect fit for me.


I painted the inside of the bottle using a mix of blue and black paint. I have painted the inside of bottles before, but let me tell you this was an experience! I normally just water down a little paint and then pour it inside and it works like a charm. This however did not. When I awoke the next morning all the paint had settled in the bottom of the bottle, leaving the sides in a thin tinted layer of paint. I actually liked it better than what I had intended! Happy crafting accident for me! I decorated the bottle using Eerie Tale.



For project number two I decided to fix up something in my thrift store stash. Whenever I go thrifting I buy things I might like to fix up later, and keep them stashed until I am ready for them.




For this one I used the Mon Amour paper. I got the idea for this when flipping thru the papers and I saw the photo of the gentleman and just thought of how perfect it would be in a frame! I had a Prima one in my stash, and the idea just kinda snowballed from there. I used some antiques from my personal collection, and the rings on the top are a priceless family heirloom that I was loaned to use in the photo. I made the roses from the paper, and the Tim Holtz Tattered Floral die.



For my last project I decided to make a card. I knew right away that I wanted to use the Steampunk Debutante paper. For me this was a nod to what introduced me to Graphic 45. I was learning how to make mini albums and was watching a video in which that paper line was used. I saw it and immediately knew I had to have it. I managed to find a 12x12 and an 8x8, both of which are still in my collection. For this card I decided to use some of the 8x8 paper, and I must say this is one of my favorite things I have ever done.


Here is my round two video with all of my projects:

Old Curiosity Shoppe Scrapbook Canvas

Happy 4th of July all!!!

I have spent my day off at my desk, working on another scrapbook canvas. I love to take my scrapbook pages and adhere them to canvas. This way I can see them everyday.

Today I have made one using Graphic 45's Olde Curiosity Shoppe. I used an old photo of my Grandfather from when he was about 12 years old.






I fussy cut several images from the collection along with the chipboard for almost all of the decorations. I also used some of the Tim Holtz Keys, Keyholes, and gears to give it more depth. I also had a silver distressed butterfly left over from another project that I added to this.
Hope you have all enjoyed your Holiday!!

Graphic 45 Design Team Audition 2016

So it's that awesome time of the year when Graphic 45 has their design team auditions!

So my name is Altina Robinson, and I am 24 years old from Springfield, MO.
I was introduced to Graphic 45 when I was I believe 16, and the Steampunk Debutante collection was phasing out (I have both the 12x12 and the 8x8 in my stash.)

I have been into arts and crafts since I was a little kid, and was introduced to paper crafting when I was about 15. It started out with scrapbooking, which turned into card making, which turned into art journaling, and well, you get the point.


So for my first project I found a Tim Holtz mini clipboard at Michaels and knew I HAD to do something with it. So for this project I used the new Voyage Beneath the Sea collection.
I love this collection ( I LOVE steampunk) and I love all the bright colors.







For my second project I made a birthday card with Botanical Tea for a friend.
I am a bit obsessive about my scraps, so I have them all organized by collection.

Feel Better Shaker Card

Hi everyone!

Today I am sharing my very first shaker card!! I have been watching all kinds of videos on shaker cards and I have just been so inspired to make one myself. So I went to Michaels and Joann and bought everything I would possibly need for fillers (hooray for coupons!!)

I was inspired to do a get well card for the 6th challenge on the Lawn Fawn Fanatics blog.

I used the Baked with Love and the Treat Yourself stamp sets for this card.





I am so happy with the way this card turned out. I love the colors, and I LOVE the shaker element. I will definitely be making more of these cards in the future!!

If you want to see how I made this card please check out the video below:
