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

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!

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!

I will miss seeing Anne's incredible creations on the blog, and am sad to see her go. Today's projects are brilliant and beautiful, and a fussy cutter's dream! I would never have the patience to cut out all of those flowers! Love all the projects and am in awe of her talent.

Anne, you will be missed. Keep sharing with us.

I've been following Anne for quite some time now. Her work is extraordinary. I love her attention to detail.

I've been an admirer of Anne for a long time. She is one of the most creative artists I've ever seen. Love these projects of G45's she did.

Anne is a true artist, her imagination is endless and her skill is fantastic. Such amazing creations. Yes, Graphic 45 was the beginning of the inspirations and boy did she do it justice.

The tags are great! I'm going to try them tonight.

Fabulous examples of your vast talent, Anne! So happy that Graphic 45 has brought you to our attention and admiration! And of course am pinning away to refer to your beautiful inspiration!

Nooooo! Not Anne...I don't want her to go! Her art is over-the-top incredible! I have learned so much from her. I'll miss her on this blog but will continue to follow her website. Many thanks to G45 for featuring Anne and having her as one of the design team. She has inspired all of us.

Anne, so sorry to see you go, but best wishes for the future. I hope to follow your blog for the next chapter of your career.

Beautiful, beautiful creations. Thank you for sharing your talents Anne.

Oh thank you for this blog! Anne's work is impeccable! I just love the gorgeous accuracy of the cuts on the detail work.

Anne, you introduced me to G45. I was mesmerized with your double envelope French Country mini album. I made it! I learned so much by following your tutorial, and I keep on learning from you through your incredible artistic gift, your videos and your huge heart for sharing. Not only do you have a unique creative talent, you have also helped spread a lot of joy! I am always looking forward to seeing what you create next! Thank You!

Amazing, amazing, amazing! xxx

So incredibly talented! Gorgeous projects!!

i love watching Anne.

Amazing work! We will miss your inspiration!

Thanks so much, Anne, for such awesome ideas...front & backs, too!

I always loved watching your tutorials, Anne. Your soft manner, lovely accent and sense of humor made me feel like I could do anything you were teaching. Do hope you will continue to share or I may have to lay down my scissors :0).

Anne's work is awesome. She is an incredibly creative, diverse and versatile artist. I have enjoyed her videos for a long time now and have learned so much from her. I will miss her as a G45 DT member, but will continue to learn and grow through her blog and YouTube.

Anne Is beautiful and so is her art!

I have been subscribed to Anne's YouTube channel for a few years now. She has always been a favorite of mine. Sometimes it is hard to believe that G45 keeps finding such amazing talent. As much as I love the past team's projects, there keeps being a rising tide of new ideas and new talent. It is so awesome to see how paper crafting is evolving!

Anne is not only an over-the-top designer, but an incredibly kind and encouraging lady. It has been an honor to design alongside you, Anne! Your creations are so brilliant and beautifully complex - I can tell you pour your whole heart into what you do. Sending you big hugs and well wishes!!!

i live in mexico city and i begining in this beautiful work, when i saw anne´s work and her way to teach how she Works is very creative. she made creative things and i think she enjoy it very much.

I've been crafty most of my life thanks to the inspirational talents of my family members, particularly my aunt, but I am fairly new to the world of scrapbooking.

Little did I know when I jumped from making a "mini" album to Anne's Steampunk Spells album using her 13+ tutorial series on YouTube, did I realize just how intricately detailed this world can be!!!

I like to compare my initial scrapbook projects as attempting to earn a high school diploma, while Anne's work is the equivalent to a doctoral degree in paper-crafting.

I'm OBSESSED with Anne's videos now, and I thank Graphic45 for making her a member of their design team so that we could all be exposed to her wonderful talents!

You're amazing, Anne! :)

Fondly,
Erica

Anne, I've been following you for several years now. You never cease to amaze me with your fabulous creations. You are a true gem. Love your detailed instructions and your willingness to share your special talents. Thank you Anne.
