A Fond Graphic 45 Farewell to Romy Veul
Romy Veul is such a magnificent artist! Her use of color and layering has been such an asset on our Design Team. She is a layout, card, and tag master! She also makes incredible altered art projects - she can truly do it all! She has been with us the last 2 years, and every project she creates is just bursting with life. Today, we will be sharing a lot of new projects never shared before - you are in for a treat. Then, we will share some of the many highlights on her team. We will miss Romy so much and we're so thankful for her time on our team!
"This year I went to a famous Dutch amusement park, the ‘Efteling’, with my father and we took a lot of photos of all the fairytale decorations that you can see there. The magical Once Upon a Springtime collection was just perfect for scrapping one of the photos that we took this day. " ~Romy
What a beautiful Precious Memories tag album! Wouldn't this be a sweet gift for a new or expecting mother? Every tag is simply brilliant.
ATC Ivory Tag Album
Precious Memories Paper Collection
Romy would often show us how to "Think Outside the Collection!" On this layout, she shows you how you can use holiday paper outside of the context of the holidays by matching with lovely colors of a photo. What a great layout!
"The Twelve Days of Christmas collection is one of my favourite Graphic 45 collections and I was dieing to use it again. As soon as I saw this photo of my niece Elise in her Spanish dress, I realized that these papers actually aren’t only perfect for Christmas, but also for projects that don’t have a Christmas feel to them. I thought the red and gold papers actually matched my niece’s dress quite well. So I started layering and fussy cutting and used the Twelve Days of Christmas collection to make a warm lay-out with a ‘Spanish’ feel to it. " ~Romy
Twelve Days of Christmas papers:
Swans a Swimming
My True Love
Holly and Ivy
12 Days of Christmas 6x6 Patterns & Solids Pad
12 Days of Christmas 8x8 Pad
12 Days of Christmas Banners
12 Days of Christmas Alphabet Stickers
Romy had a gift for sharing special moments on her layouts. We love the whimsical details on this - the use of the folder flap, the fussy cut shells, the layered doily, and perfect sea embellishments makes this a show stopper!
"Some time ago I went to the beach to watch the beautiful sunset. We managed to take a few pretty beautiful shots and the minute I saw them, I knew the By The Sea collection would be perfect for scrapping those. I decided to use the two contrasting colours orange and blue on my lay-out to make the colours in the photo stand out a little more. " ~Romy
Romy would always take such exciting adventures like this trip to Paris that she documented with a gorgeous Come Away with Me layout!
"This spring I went to Paris. We took lots of photos, including a couple of photos of the Eiffel Tower. This photo appeared to match the Come Away with Me collection just perfectly, so I decided to use these beautiful papers to make a travel lay-out." ~Romy
Come Away with Me papers:
Look Out World
Come Away With Me 8x8 Pad
Come Away With Me Tags & Pockets

Now, let's share some Romy highlights! This was a favorite card from Romy using the beloved collection Secret Garden. Wow, so beautiful and delicate.
We always adored Romy's tags, like this set of Steampunk Spells ATC tags. These are practically perfect in every way!
Romy also had a talent for altered art like this altered Mother Goose tray!
To close out, this Botanical Tea shows the elegance and beauty of all of Romy's work so perfectly. How gorgeous!
