Graphic 45 Design Team?

Title: LeCirque Wonder Box

So here we go.... 
I know its been quiet for us in the blog world ....
March? Where did February go?
This post will be a great jump start for what we
hope to be a very loud and fun filled March.

One of our fav paper lines has done a 
shout out for design team members.
Graphic 45 has sent the call out...
So we felt the need to respond.. 
So here is a quick collection of a few
projects to share with you all.
We hope it inspires...
Would love your feedback and comments.

Title: Coney Summer

For this piece we used a Leaky Shed Studio ultra tag.
Also several tags from their shape tag set created to
fit the Graphic 45 double-sided die-cut sheet.
Used one of our favorite bathing beauties
from our collection as a focal image.
"On the Boardwalk" is one of our all time 
favorites from Graphic 45.

Title: Steampunk Curio  Shadowbox

 Steampunk Debutante was such an inspiration....
We had been hoping for someone to
create a stylish and bold steampunk paper.
Then it happened. 
Not only did it arrive... but it was better than we had hoped.
It was fantastic.
We created this a few months ago as a teaching sample.
Then we decided to make it into one of our first kits.
Filled with chipboard shapes from Leaky Shed Studio...
 This project is filled with a combination
of Steampunk Debutante paper, chipboard cuts,
embossing powders,charms and fun hardware.

Title: "LeCirque" Tag

Title: Clara Bow (The It Girl) Jewelery Box

Inspired by the "Curtain Call" paper we altered an
old cigar box into an old Hollywood bling box.

All the best,

Gosh Mike you have been busy and Graphic 45 would be seriously mad not to have you as a design team member. Hope with all those fabulous projects you've shown you've left yourself enough inspiration to do more but knowing you and Lesley you will have.
Loads of luck and love

ps Difficult though it is to choose a favourite I have opted for the one with the metal cog embossed frame or it could be the tag with those gorgeous teal butterfly wings or is it because I am in a teal and brown phase at the moment!!! Lol!
