A few days ago, I received an email from the team at Graphic45 inviting me to be a Brand Ambassador for their 2022-2023 season! I couldn’t quite believe that my name had been included in the list of talented artists but there it was in black and white. I am thrilled and very humbled to think that my cardmaking skills are worthy of this accolade but I will gladly accept the honour.
Within hours of the email announcement, my Let it Bee video had been viewed two hundred times which for a small channel such as mine is really exciting. New subscribers have joined and new friendships are being formed with the other Brand Ambassadors.
I thank you for following me on my crafting journey thus far and I hope you will carry along the crafting road with me, over the next few months too.
Today, I would like to share a selection of cards that I created, with memories of my Pa. He would be 101 years old in June. Born in Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, England: he returned home from WW2 and studied to become an architect. The Graphic 45 collection “Catch of the Day” would have appealed to him because he loved to be by the sea and the sketch drawings could have been drafted by him. Although, he designed buildings not boats!
Catch of the Day
This pre-made stepper card (from Katy Sue Designs) is perfect for building up a scene. The imagery within the G45 collection is simply stunning and makes it easier to create stylish male cards.
This teepee card is so effective and easier to make than you think. This card will be for my son Ben, who this summer, graduates from university as a Graphic Designer.
Sail the Seas…
This triangular pop-up card would have been perfect for my Pa. The lighthouse scene and the navy blue sketched illustrations would have made him smile.
If you would like to see more of these cards and learn how to make the triangular pop-up card, then watch my latest YouTube video.
Until next time.
