Graphic 45 Design Team 2013 Audition


French Clock - Various Collections by Graphic 45 
How time flies.  A whole year's gone by since I applied to join the design team for what is reputedly one of the most respected family run paper crafting companies in the crafting world.   I remember not being able to look at that final DT list for ages and was blown away when I eventually took a peek and saw I'd made it :-).   Thanks Diane, Amie, Charee, for giving me such a fabulous opportunity.  It's been an amazing fun filled year of creativity during which I've worked along side my fabulously talented teamies, met loads of like minded crafters and hopefully inspired others to cut into their Graphic 45 papers and make gorgeous projects and gifts.

Now the year is nearing its end and the call for a new design team has been announced I've decided to enter again, so with fingers crossed here's a selection of my projects, some old, some new, none borrowed and one blue :-) ..........................

  1. You are my FAVORITE G45 designer. I love your artistic sensibilities, you've inspired me to try so many new things and you're videos are the best-- so easy to understand and follow.

    They'd be crazy not to have you back for 2013!!

  13. Wow Claire ~ thank you sooo much for sharing your gifts & talents with us all. I am always inspired with what you share. In fact you remain my greatest inspiration to lift the bar in whatever I'm creating. I wish you success in your application and wonder what it would take for people such as yourself to be appropriately recognised for the gifts you bring and to receive the rewards that allow you to spend even more time creating & sharing!

Hope you go into it another year. Your projects speak for themselves, and loud at that! G45 need look no further than right here. Go girlfriend! Hugs from across the pond, Ruth Ann :) XO

  45. Everything the ladies and gents said above I agree with, and I couldn't put it any better myself. I want to add my best wishes for your continued success with Graphic 45.
    It's funny how we all bemoan not being able to obtain crafting items where eachof us live, and I hear that most often from crafters in the UK, but you are proof that you can get anything you desire - your work shows that. Julie
