Solange Marques

"Hello, my name is Solange Marques and I so glad for more one term on Graphic 45 design team. I live in Curitiba South of Brazil. I love arts since I was children , I discovered the scrap in 2004 and then nothing could stop me. I have a big family, my husband who helps me in my journey to 31 years now and during this marvelous trip we got 5 children and 2 grandchildren and they are my principal inspiration. I’m majored in arts and architecture but I work as a jewelry appraiser  at the bank to 26 years and I hope anxiously my retirement to devote my full time for scrap. I’m in love with mixed media and my projects always there are too many mediums such as acrylic gesso, acrylic paint, spray ink, modelling paste, watercolor, oil pastel ,panpastel,beeswax and many others textures. I consider myself a mixed media artist and I love artsy style." ~Solange

"I decided to altered an old book that my mother gave to me.  I really like to work with older items and give them new life.  This old book hopped off of the shelf and into my heart.

I used lots and lots of fun layers using images from Graphic 45's Sweet Sentiments, Time to Flourish, Botanical Tea, A Ladies' Diary and Once Upon a Springtime collections.  This just goes to show that keeping your scraps really pays off! lol.

I have created a photo tutorial to show you the steps I took along the way to create this lovely layered project." ~Robin

Robin shows us her talent for 3D projects with this altered Couture record player. What an awesome piece!

 "I found this fabulous 1960's record player last summer at an antiques shop for only $15!  She was old, drab and rusty just waiting for a new friend.

I started by painting her black, then I began to add lots of yummy layers using the Couture collection. I created special scene of lovely ladies revolving on the turn table.  I also wanted to showcase a different way to use the alphabet stickers from the collection so I added them one by one to the base of the turntable.  It looks really cool when it spins. To add a finishing touch, I altered one of my old records from the 60's to make this project extra special." ~Robin

The Magnificent Cards, Layouts, and Altered Art of Maggi Harding!

Notebook Organizer, Typography, Maggi Harding, Graphic 45 (3) of 4

We are so excited to have the magnificent work of Maggi Harding on our team! She is such a talent and a joy. We have been fans of Maggi for a long time, so we are so excited to have her on the team! You will love the projects she shares today. A great organizer and tutorial and 3 projects that show the talent and brilliance she brings to the team this year.  Give a warm G45 welcome to Maggi Harding!

Maggi Harding

"Hi, I am Maggi Harding, and I am so thrilled to be part of the Graphic 45 family!  I live in eastern North Carolina, but I claim the world as home.  I have spent most of my life wandering, as a child with my parents because my Dad was in the Army, and, as an adult, because I wanted to.  By the time I was 18 I had been to 9 different schools, lived in France, Japan, Germany, Pennsylvania, Kentucky and North Carolina.  Since attaining adulthood, I have lived in North Carolina, Florida, Virginia, Alaska and Colorado. I'm really not sure when I became an adult, but that's another story all together!

My husband and I share our home with our two standard poodles, Nika and Tisha.  We love to travel and do so mostly in our RV so that our sweet furbabies can be with us.   We have been from Key West, Florida to Fairbanks, Alaska and from the Pacific shores of California to the Atlantic shores of North Carolina in our well travelled motorhome!

I discovered scrapbooking in 2005 when I decided to make scrapbooks for my two best friends from college.  It quickly became my passion and something that I spend hours doing and never grow tired of my efforts.

My style is eclectic as I do a little bit of everything.  One day it's mixed media and the next day its classic layered papers.  Two things I really love are vintage styling and bright bold colors.  Truly,  Graphic 45 was made for me!  Its rich saturated colors and bold patterns are an artistic adventure for me; I always ask myself, what can I create, how can I make this piece of paper come to life?   I love the challenge of combining those beautiful patterns with my photos to create a cohesive art piece.  Scrapbooking has awakened my “inner artist” and  satisfies the creative side of my brain that was long neglected during my career as a CPA.  These days I am a happy  retired, stay at home, crazy, paper loving scrap artist!"

Maggi created an awesome Typography organizer for her Design Team responsibilities. This is such a fun idea for our crafters who want to remember various projects to try!

"I am a self confessed organization freak when it comes to things I have to do! To help me keep track of my design team responsibilities, I've created an organizer in a small 3 ring binder with dividers for different teams and tasks.  The notebook I am using is 7 x 9" and I like the small size so I can easily take it with me where ever I go.   You could use this for so many things,  it would be a perfect gift for a bride to be who is organizing her wedding.  How about for a busy Mom so she could keep track of appointments for the children, shopping lists, social occasions, birthdays, the possibilities are endless.  You could use a standard size notebook and make a school notebook.  Wouldn't that be such a fun project to do with a child?

My video tutorial takes you through creating the cover page for the notebook and creating the subject dividers inside as well as the design for one of the divider pages.  At the end of the video, I've included photos of all the divider pages that I created so that you can copy them if you like." ~Maggi

Next, Maggi shares a gorgoeus layout using By the Sea. We love her great techniques on this!

"I've created a shadow box effect on this layout by fussy cutting the frame and part of the imagery from the title page of the By the Sea collection.  I used foam tape and cardboard to pop this up from the background patterened paper, My Anchor.

I like to fussy cut my images and "insert" them into the scene on the page and I've done that here with my sweet little niece.  Tip:  To further the illusion of a fussy cut image being part of the scene on your paper, layer elements all around the fussy cut photo.    On this layout I have layered diecut sea oats behind my image and the little ones printed on the paper as well as layering flowers and seashells around my image." ~Maggi

"This sweet little dog house was made with Graphic 45's ATC Box and the Raining Cats and Dogs collection.  I altered the box by adding a roof that I made from scrap cardboard. It's a perfect size to hold a little bag of doggie treats or a fun toy for a wee pup.   You could also use the tags that are included with the ATC box to make a tiny mini album.

I've included a pdf file that provides written instructions for building the doghouse and a template for the roof." ~Maggi

"Here's a beautiful dimensional birthday card that's sure to please!  Beaded trim and flowers add the perfect feminine touches making this a great card for Moms and girlfriends.  My Snapguide tutorial takes you through the steps for making a step card and I also include a template for cutting the card.  I use popped up layers to give my card dimension and tip of the day:  Use cardboard (free!) rather than foam tape to pop up layers." ~Maggi
