Graphic 45 Greetings to our 2016 Special Project Designers: Maria Cole & Robin Shakoor!
We are on our last day of introducing the incredible designers in the G45 Family this year. We can't believe it! Today, we celebrate our two Special Project Designers Maria Cole and Robin Shakoor. They both are incredible artists who collaborate to design classes for us. So, we have two incredible printable project sheets to share with you today for FREE made by these incredible artists! Let's let them introduce themselves:
"Hello! I’m Maria and I am super thrilled and excited to be part of the Graphic 45 Design Team as a Special Projects Designer. I’m equally excited to be designing again with some of my teammates from a few years ago, along with the incredible new design team!
By day, I wear many hats: copywriter, homemaker, doggy-sitter, food-maker (yep, that’s me in the kitchen), and my favorite, papercrafter! It was through seeing out-of-this-world creations made with Graphic 45 paper that turned me onto papercrafting in 2011. Since then, I’ve taught many classes using the latest Graphic 45 paper lines and Staples. And in 2013, my ultimate crafty dream came true when I made the 2013-2014 Graphic 45 Design Team!
I love creating a variety of projects from intermediate projects to whimsical CHA creations. Papercrafting and scrapbooking have brought me such joy and it’s my hope to inspire others to discover that same joy by playing with pretty paper!
Maria helps design our monthly classes and today we're sharing her incredible Children's Hour Box and mini project sheet. We also share her card project sheet which is created from the scraps of the main project. How amazing is this? Try it today!
You will recognize Robin from our Design Team last year. Now, she's helping us design classes. She makes incredible projects including the A Ladies' Diary tag project sheet you'll find below.
"My name is Robin Shakoor and I love everything crafty! I live in the beautiful state of Virginia and I have done arts and crafts all of my life. I have over 10 years of experience as a floral designer and 8 years specifically as a scrapbook layout and card artist."
Enjoy this "Sublime" tag made with A Ladies' Diary - make one today! Yay!
