"Hi! My name is Danielle Copley. I am a wife to an amazingly patient and supportive husband and mother to three rambunctious boys and one sweet daughter. We live in the east county of beautiful San Diego, California.


I'm a health-nut wannabe but a junk food junkie in reality. I love a good cup of tea and can't live without cookies! I am definitely a girly girl, but I love going to the gym and lifting weights- 135lb. squats and deadlifts are a staple, just don't ask me to get on a treadmill! I love to be around my family playing board games and going on hikes. This time of year, my days revolve around Little League baseball and dance recitals, and I wouldn't have it any other way!

I am excited and truly honored to be a part of the Graphic 45 Design Team. I have always enjoyed crafts of all types from sewing and crocheting to painting and paper crafting. My journey into the paper crafting world began when I had my daughter. After three boys I was so happy to add a girl to my team and I obsessed over girly things. I came across YouTube videos of cards and mini albums, and once I saw Once Upon A Springtime come to life through other people's cards and albums, I was a goner! I began with card making and eventually ventured into mini albums, which are my all-time favorite to create! I love creating things that are useful and practical but beautiful at the same time. Thank you Graphic 45 for this amazing opportunity and I can't wait to share this journey with all of you!" ~Danielle

First, let's check out this Precious Memories mini album. Danielle shares a great walk-through of this project below! So amazing!

"It was a no brainer when I found out my sister­-in­-law was expecting a baby girl: I had to use the Precious Memories Collection to make her a mini album to hold all those precious newborn photos. I wanted it light and bright, so the shabby chic staples were a perfect complement and the blues in the paper added the perfect accent to all the girly pink I used! I knew the album had to hold a lot of photos, so a great idea to accomplish that is to add waterfalls to increase photo real estate! Creating different variations of a waterfall keeps each page interesting and provides a fun interactive element. I can just imagine this precious little one growing up and having fun flipping through her baby album!" ~Danielle

Next, we have this awesome Home Sweet Home recipe box! We are in LOVE with this great home decor or gift idea. Love it!

"As soon as I saw the Home Sweet Home Paper Collection, I knew what I wanted to create. I had an old broken recipe box that I hid away in embarrassment. I wanted something beautiful and fun  yet practical to replace it and knew Home Sweet Home would come to my rescue. I created the recipe box from scratch so I could create a box that resembled a retro oven that would hold all my recipe cards and a compartment on top to hold a pen or pencil to mark any recipe changes. These papers are the perfect colors and images to give my recipe box an elegant country feel perfect for displaying proudly and functionally in my kitchen!" ~Danielle

"I loved the Spring sentiment from the Sweet Sentiments Stamp 1 and wanted to create a card that encompassed that sentiment of new beginning and opportunities. The cute hatching chick cut apart from the Easter Greetings 12x12 sheet was a perfect addition, and everything else fell into  place with the bird nest and blooming flower to tie everything together." ~Danielle

Oh how wonderful done projects!

How beautiful!! LOVE them all but the Precious Moments and Sweet Sentiments albums are my favorites! TFS!
Welcome to the team!

Lovely projects! I like Danielle's clever recipe box stove!

Beautifully done projects Danielle. I really like your style. :)

Lindo de morrer!

Danielle's minis are very nice. Nothing fancy, but nice. I don't see either video as a "tutorial" since we're not being shown how to craft the albums, just how they were decorated.

I do have a small problem with Danielle promoting her store through this blog, ie. selling kits through Scrapbook Maven utilizing G45 papers. It just doesn't feel right.

Hello!

Wonderful projects! The kitchen stove is perfection! I love it! Wishing you a happy day!

Hugs,

Barbara Diane

As one of Danielle's YouTube subscribers, I expect to see commercials for her kits when I visit that site. I am disappointed that Graphic 45 has labeled these commercial videos as tutorials. On the other hand, I really enjoyed seeing how the pages were decorated. I suggest she film G45 Design Team projects with a more informative intent, as opposed to promoting her kits.

You have such a beautiful style Danielle. All of your projects are just lovely.

Super duper gorgeous!!

Thank you everyone for a warm welcome! I am excited to be a part of a great Team and I will definitely have G45 videos specific for the Team in the future :)

Welcome! I love the recipe box!
Looking forward to seeing more from you.
Happy crafting!

I JUST LOVE DANIELLE'S ALBUMS!! THEY'RE BEAUTIFUL WITHOUT BEING SO COMPLICATED THAT I WOULDN'T EVEN ATTEMPT THEM!! THANKS FOR SOME SIMPLICITY!!

Welcome Danielle! Beautiful projects...this is going to be a fun year.

Hi - loved the Precious Memories mini album. I would like to semi case it, and would like to know the size of your cover and spine on that particular album? I plan to cut my chip board today, so hopefully, we can respond soon. Beautiful work by the way.

I love all the beautiful projects. The Oven Recipe Box is adorable.

These are beautiful, Danielle.

Gracias por sus muestras, son hermosas, permitanme ser una amiga más. Le deseo lo mejor, chao
