A Fond Farewell to Keri Sallee!

G45_May15_Typography_Frame_Full_Staples Project

Keri Sallee is an incredible designer. She brings so much creativity to the table, and also a brilliant sense of how to make gorgeous projects with materials around your house. She would share so many projects made with just one sheet of paper, or just two. Her projects are so wonderful, and we wish we could have shared so many more. Today, we will highlight a new project never-before-seen, and some amazing projects and tutorials from her time on our Design Team. We cannot wait to see what Keri will do next. Her love for mixed media, creating, and life show through every piece of art she makes! We will miss her greatly.

First, we have this amazing Typography frame and Washi Tape idea from Keri. This is such a fabulous, quick, and gorgoeus gift idea! Learn how to make Washi Tape stickers with Keri's Snapguide below.

"This project is all about what to make when you need to make something last minute, but you want to make it homemade. It is super easy to find a great frame, mount a saying from any of the Graphic 45 papers and add some metal embellishments to the outside. Done. Super Easy!

For this project, I want to share with you one of my favorite new techniques: How to DIY your own stickers using Graphic 45’s Washi Tape.

Keri was particularly talented at taking an idea and making something unbelievable with it. We asked her to do a tutorial with our 6x6 Patterns & Solids paper pad, and she came up with this beautiful album! You can even make it yourself with her step-by-step tutorial below. How amazing!

We mentioned before that Keri is a wizard at creating with few materials. The two following projects are perfect examples of the Keri magic! This album below is one she created out of just one sheet of 12x12 An Eerie Tale paper! How inspiring!

Keri has a knack for many things, including mixed media. We recently shared this incredible mixed media album using Artisan Style by Keri. It shows the other side to her vast talent. She does magical things with paint and paper! What's fun about this project is she used it as a planner for her craft projects, and then you could also store them in this beautiful album. A brilliant idea.

Keri showed us around Christmas how to make a 'Twas the Night Before Christmas gift bag and cards with few materials as well. The holidays are such a busy time, it's important to create many projects in a reasonable amount of time, and this is one great idea for that.

Keri's flowers are beautiful, and I love her Mother Goose Printers Tray! Thanks for all the tutorials.

Have so enjoyed Keri's work for Graphic 45. Super inspirational! Best wishes in all your endeavors Keri!

Very nice! So versatile for gift giving!

I'll miss Keri..she's a fabulous crafter! Best wishes Keri:)

I have so enjoyed Keri's down-to-earth narration on her video tutorials. Haven't we all left glue on our work surface? Figured out a better way to do something after the project was finished? Misplaced our scoring tool and used whatever worked? These are the realities of life. Thank you, Keri!

Love Keri's projects & ideas. I'll miss her! xx

Keri - your two how to videos were winners with me. I love the one page one - I plan to make that one for giving gift cards, etc. You are very creative and a great teacher. Thanks.

Keri you will be missed. Thanks for all you have shared with us, you are an inspiration to us all. Love your projects. Best wishes.

Keri's projects have always inspired me...she will be so missed.
