Today we celebrate the magnificent work of Anne Elisabeth Rostad. Anne has been an inspiration for many G45ers. She's so generous with her incredible tutorials and her fabulous, intricate, and beautifully detailed projects. Her style is so unique and her creations are a gorgeous sight to behold. We are going to miss Anne on our Design Team greatly, but we know she will keep creating and sharing wonderful ideas with her followers. Today, we will be sharing altered art, tag albums, and a few highlights from her time with us on the Design Team.

"I live in Norway and I am a mother of 2 grown up sons who lives nearby me :-) Creating has been my all time passion . It started when I was a little girl and had fun making animals and houses from things i found in the wood. Later at school we learned how to sew i girl's class and  I did not like that at all since I had to follow recipe, so i asked to be in the boy`s class where i could make things out of wood, clay and metal. Think it was then i really started to love creating. As the only girl in class l i got make whatever i wanted so I had a lot of fun :-) Later I found out that Sewing was a lot of fun when I could make whatever I wanted without any recipe. Started scrapbooking for about 4 - 5 years ago and since then i have been hooked on this hobby :-) When I first saw the Graphic 45 papers and got my hands on them I was in heaven. So much fun to do with this gorgeous and versatile papers and many of the techniques i used in quilting I could use with fussy cutting and layering so it is very much the same, but more possibilities with papers. I am so happy to be a part on G45 DT and will have so much fun creating with all this wonderful papers and staples :-)" ~Anne

Anne Rostad's Blog

First, let's see a beautiful Couture sewing kit and mini book she created for Winter CHA. This is a project never-before-seen! So exciting!

"Hi everyone :-) I made this travel sewing box and mini album book for  Graphic 45 CHA winter 2014. I used the beautiful Couture collection and 5 x 3 match boxes. I had so much fun fussy cut out the images and most of  the images are pop up with pop dots ( 3D foam) and covered with Claudine Hellmuth multi matte.


Here is the front of the book that holds a mini album inside. Used the drawer from the match box and cut out chipboard covers for front and back. The spine is made from a empty kitchen paper towel. Great to use since it already is rounded.

Just cut out a piece from it to fit the sides. Fussy cut out the images and made a stick pin. Lace flower and black feather. the peacock die is from Magnolia." ~Anne

"It is great to make a template of the tag and use repositionable tape on the back.

Then you just can place the template on your paper and cut around.

For the hole I used a 1/5 inch circle punch, but if you don't have that you can use the top of a marker or so and drew around."

A Ladies diary paper collection,cardstock cut outs and 2 large tags from Graphic 45, May Arts ribbon, Spellbinders die, Marianne Design die, Glue, Score pall, Claudine Hellmuth multi matte, Zig pen, cardstock lace and magnets

Here's a beautiful A Ladies' Diary Bookmark that she has shared with us before in the past, but we just love it! It shows her ability to think outside of the box when it comes to projects. It's not just a tag, it is a bookmark and unfolds holding many more treasures!

This is such a great creation. This Olde Curiosity Shoppe dressform has a brilliant paper-pieced skirt using Olde Curiosity Shoppe. The bottom has such a great scene and it's just unbelievable!

Anne makes rich colors just really come alive, as she displays with her Typography tag album below. She adds so much fun and depth to her projects. Don't you just love this?

This is a standout project from Anne. This is a Sweet Sentiments calendar she made for winter CHA and it is a fussy cut dream! Love the flowers framing this beautiful calendar.

The back of Anne's calendar has room to journal or place a photo. A great idea to make the project useful for so many reasons - what a perfect display piece in your home!

"Happy Crafting"

Anne,
You are one of my very favorite designers. I just love your thoughtful and inspirational projects and your tutorials are the best. Can't wait to see what you create in the future.

Anne has more talent in her little finger than I do in my whole body. Wow! I always love her stuff.

I love Anne's projects. I've recently made her Olde Curiosity Shoppe album, three of her By the Sea photo mat albums and her golfing photo frame from Good ol' Sport. I hope she keeps creating using G45 papers. I love her style!

I have been following Anne since I found her French Country Album...She has some amazing creations. Very talented.

I have always loved and admired Ann's creations. I too am going to miss her.

I am sad to see Anne leave, she is one of my favorites. I am so grateful that I can still follow her blog and tutorials on Utube. I am in the process of making a version of one of her mini albums.

Anne's creations are mesmerizing. so talented and so generous to share with us.

Fantastic!!! Fabulous!!! Gorgeous!!! Beautiful!!! Did I miss any superlatives?
Loved every bit.

Such an amazing artist. Her talent and creativity is remarkable. And she is so generous to share. I so wished she lived next door to me. lol She is such an inspiration.

I apologise to everyone else who is also incredibly talented, but Anne is my favourite.
Her craft inspires me and her videos are so easy to follow.
I will miss her on the G45 design team and really wish she didn't have to go.
Xxxx

Oh my! The Sweet Sentiments calendar and the Secret Garden wishing well are A M A Z I N G ! ! Absolutely divine fussy cutting and I am in awe!! TFS!

Anne was the very first youtube papercrafter video I ever watched quite a few years ago and I was immediately hooked. Her work with Graphic 45 product lines continues to be too fabulous to describe. All the best always Anne and thank you for sharing your gifts.

It will be so sad to see Anne leave. I just love all her work with G45. Anne makes it easy to use G45 papers and staples.

All of Anne's projects are so beautiful and inspiring. What a talented artist. Thanks for showing some favorites. Michelle t

Anne, you are the most creative person I know! I will miss your beautiful projects and tutorials on Graphic 45. I do plan to follow you as you continue your incredible projects.

Anne's work is gorgeous! I would love to be able to create one of her projects some day.

I just can't believe how gorgeous Anne's projects are.

I only know about Graphic 45 because of Anne. In fact, I was hooked on paper-crafting after watching Anne's YouTube videos. So, Anne, I can't say thank-you enough. You have got to be one of the most talented people I have seen.

I am forever grateful to Graphic 45 for introducing you to me through this blog Anne. I have learned a great deal from you and I'll follow your annescreations and xannero on YouTube.

I loved looking at Anne's projects. They are amazing. She thinks outside the box and I love that.

such stunning work, back to watch the videos

Amazing Projects. Love, love, love.

Each one of your projects is absolutely amazing, Anne! I will miss you and your wonderful work a lot!

Amazing projects! I'm in love with the dress form and the "wardrobe album!"

Anne is decidedly THE fussy cutting queen!!! Her work is just amazing! I have learned so much from her...different ways to use magnets, how to strengthen paper elements, that backs are just as important as fronts, that fussy cutting is a true art form and so much more. Her creative projects always leave me awestruck...little elements are tucked in every nook and cranny. I recall her nervous enthusiasm when she first received her G45 Design Team supplies...like a kid in a candy shop...she wanted to use everything at once! While I will miss her on this blog, I am one of her video subscribers. She is a wonderful teacher! Thank you for featuring Anne today!

Anne is in a whole different league!! Will let you into a secret (coz of course you read every comment, lol)...
I'll be serious for a moment. 2 mornings ago, I played one of Anne's videos & for personal reasons, we were both crying. THAT is quite a feat a) to make me cry & b) for a craft video to have that result.
Anne is so modest, unassuming, so generous & I really don't think she realises what a "Gift" (my mother's word) she has?!
Incredible pieces of art shared here today. Thank you Anne!! :))

Anne's creations truly are wonderful works of art :)

Fabulous projects ... just keep getting blown away by the Graphic 45 Design Community ... we'll be forever inspired !!
