Graphic 45 Design Team 2014 Audition

 Graphic 45 are having a Design Team call...... a challenge hard to resist :)

For the DT audition you are supposed to create a blogpost with a minimum
of six projects.....I decided to make four new projects and throw in a couple 
of my own old favorites in the here we go!

First of all: The new stuff!!

I looked through my piles of paper and found a 8x8 Le Cirque paper pad and
a few miscellaneous "golden oldies".

 I combined my two favorite things.... gift boxes and flowers.
The box made from black cardstock.

I must admit I do have "a thing" for flowers..... 

A great way to use every tiny piece of paper...

A few flower punches goes a long way..

Distress Ink on the edges, some rhinestones and pearls...

Another thing that I'm very fond of is surprises... "Don't judge the
book by the covers" is probably my favorite saying...

I guess no one uses dictionaries anymore since Google translator came into our
lives ...... I found another use for an old Swedish-English dictionary.....

A little bit of acrylic paint and some Metallic Lustre on the spine.

It needed something to keep the new colorful pages in place....


Le cirque!!!

My fearless heroine keeps doing "her thing" regardless of all the commotion
going on around her.

Paper rosettes and bits and pieces from different papers....

Beach 2014??? More like Beach 1914.... 

Another thing that isn't what it looks to be at first glance....

A card that fits in an ordinary envelope...

.....but is everything but ordinary when it opens up

Girls on the boardwalk...

Another great way to use tiny paper scraps :)

A Pop-up box card is a cool way to send someone a wonderful surprise
by mail.

A gift for a gentleman?

The box measures 4,5x9x2" 

A clue to what's inside...

Pretty sure it's not a top hat...

I wonder if real gentleman wears purple ties??

Strips of cardstock holds the tie in place...

Lined with a paper that is perfect for a real gentleman....

That was the new projects....and now for the "oldies".
I decided to include some of my favorite projects from the past....

A mini chest of drawers.....or a bunch of stacked matchboxes with
a metal part from an old alarm clock on top?!

A battery operated tea light candle inside. Brass knobs as feet.
A nice addition on my craft table where it keeps my tiny brads organized.

I do like to make "useful things" gift boxes is always useful, but I
especially like to make "personalized" gift boxes.

This one was made for someone celebrating his 18th birthday.

The birthday boy loves mathematics and is studying to
become an engineer, numbers, cogs and gears.....

I used to categorize myself as a cardmaker but I'm not
sure what I would call myself now....

But of course I still do make a card or two....


Sometimes I lose control over my "flower addiction".....

I get carried away.....

Still awake?? 
A lot of pictures......I hope It gave a glimpse of my "creative life" 
Most of all I try to have FUN and do the things that makes me HAPPY!
I hope you do to!!!
