"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
Keep up with Danielle Copley
"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

"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
