A Fond Graphic 45 Farewell to Andrew Roberts!
Today is a bittersweet day here on the blog. We begin our farewells for our absolutely incredible 2014-2015 Design Team. We are so in awe of these wonderful designers and we will miss each and every one we are saying farewell to this year. This Monday, we say our first goodbye to the amazing Andrew Roberts. Andrew's love for creating, his family, and Graphic 45 shows through every single project he creates. He has such a brilliant, distinctive style and we will miss it so much on our team. Today, we are going to share a new project from Andrew, and just some of the highlights of his time on our team.
"The gorgeous vintage imagery of graphic 45 papers is very hard to resist. Eerie tale is no exception. It is not your traditional Halloween collection which made it a great collection to create with . I made a non halloween themed card using the beautiful rose and pumpkin image. This collection is a perfect autumn collection and we are in the heart of autumn here in Australia. I love the the bold oranges and they work wonderful with metallic embellishments.
Tip: Have you tried using graphic 45 signature series cardstock with your favorite collection. The colors are a perfect match." ~Andrew

Andrew makes the most imaginative creations, like this Typography clock altered box. So many awesome metal and paper details on this great project.
Andrew wows with both bold color palettes and pastel palettes like the Precious Memories altered box below. It also has a gorgeous tag mini album inside which is perfect for his photos of his beautiful kids!
We loved this The Twelve Days of Christmas project by Andrew shared this last winter. This altered box is perfect for those delicious handmade treats we all make and gift during the holiday season. Gorgeous!
This was a fabulous set of tags Andrew made for his children. We love how he used so many collections to make each one perfectly personalized.
Andrew always thought outside the box with his projects - like this Good ol' Sport domino set! What a fun idea - amazing design and fun to play!
Andrew made these matching gift bags and cards this past Christmas and we loved these incredible matching sets. What a great idea! This first set is using Time to Celebrate, perfect for birthdays, weddings, showers, and more!
Andrew used Come Away with Me for this perfect set. What amazing colors!
Andrew makes the best Steampunk projects. He took an old VHS case to make this altered box and mini while displaying the imagery of Steampunk Spells. Wow! This is awesome.
Andrew, we will miss you terribly, and we cannot wait to see where your talent takes you! We know only fabulous places. We will miss your incredible style on our team. Thanks for being such a valued designer on our team!
