  Graphic 45 Featured Artist Anne Elisabeth Rostad and her incredible work! #graphic45

"My name is Anne Rostad and I live in Norway and I am a mother of 2 grown up sons who gives me so much pleasure. Creating has been my all time passion . It started when I was a little girl and had fun making animals and houses from things I found in the wood. Later at school we learned how to sew in girls class and I did not like that at all since I had to follow recipe, so i asked to be in the boy`s class where i could make things out of wood, clay and metal. Think it was then i really started love creating. As the only girl in class l i got make whatever I wanted so I had a lot of fun. Later I found out that sewing was a lot f fun when I could make whatever I wanted without any recipe. Started scrapbooking for about 7 years ago and since then I have in love with this hobby. The 1. paper I bought from Graphic 45 was the Fashionista Haute Couture and then I was hooked and tried to find out where I could get more :-) There is so much fun to do with this gorgeous and versatile papers and I love creating 3D projects and mini albums with a lot of detail to bring the projects to life. Many of the techniques i used in quilting I could use with fussy cutting and layering so it is very much the same, but more possibilities with papers. I am so happy and thankful to be a featured artist on the G45 blog again and I also want to thank you all for your support over the years.

                                   Have fun creating :-)
                                             Hugs, Anne"

"Have made a Fairytale Princess Castle with 2 lightning towers to hold the Graphic 45 Gilded Lily Mini Album. There is a tutorial here on my blog on how to make the base for this castle.It is all made out of chipboard and paper and decorated with pearl trim, die cut outs and flower pots. This castle would be fun to display in a little girls room and to store  pictures of the little princess in the album.

  Valentine's Card, Children's Hour, by Danielle Copley, Graphic 45, Photo 3

The Petaloo blog hop fun continues! We have more beautiful inspiration just waiting for you, G45ers! Today, Danielle Copley has a beautiful Valentine's Day card and tutorial. Then, Katie Zoey Ho shares a gorgeous fairy house. Then, Mariusz Gierszewski wows with a beautiful journal. 

First, enjoy this gorgeous Valentine's Day card from Danielle and try it yourself with her tutorial below!

"With the month of love fast approaching, I felt inspired by the fun imagery of the Children’s Hour Collection to make a shabby chic Valentine’s Day card. I love distressing the paper edges with my scissors to give it an extra vintage touch. Layering the images and using foam adhesive gives this simple to make card a more complex feel- perfect to give to someone you cherish!" ~Danielle

Now enjoy this perfect fairy prayer house from Katie! So beautiful!

"'I Say a Little Prayer for You' - made this prayer’s house out from the die-cuts of Eileen Hull’s canister die to house this little fairy. I’m not really a fan of purple, but the purplish velvet Petaloo flowers has won my heart. So…. I ended up using purple as the main colour for this prayer’s house. And it does light up which made it a little wonderful companion in your bedroom. " ~Katie

Now, Solange shares her inspiration for the letter "G"! It's Steampunk perfection.

"Continuing my art journal in alphabetical inspiration, this month is time of the letter G.For this letter I chose the word Gear. I am passionate about them and I think the factory scene from the Modern Times movie with Charlie Chaplin is simply amazing. The gears are very present in the Deluxe Collectors Edition: Steampunk Debutante and the woman face with gears is one of my favorite. I added some chipboard gears to complete my pages." ~Solange
