Today we wanted to give her a fitting tribute and wish her all the best in her future creative endeavors, of which there are many! We've picked out a few of our favorite creations by Jane from her term on the 2012 Design Team to share with you today. All of today's crafts are overflowing with beauty and love, just like Jane! It has been such an incredible joy to work with Jane over the years. We only hope today's blog can try and express how much gratitude we have for everything that she has contributed to Graphic 45!

And not it's time to begin our fun and fabulous tribute to Jane! Lets begin by getting to know more about the magnificent Jane Tregenza!


About Jane:

I live in beautiful Adelaide, South Australia. Mother to five beautiful children and married to an amazing man for 27 years. I own and teach at Seriously Scrapbooking. I have the perfect job. Each day I get to share my passion for scrapbooking and paper crafting with many many people, and I get to share in their lives and hear their happy and sometimes sad stories. I am a shoulder to cry on, and someone to laugh with. I have a wonderful team of people who help and inspire me. As I said the perfect job. Every day brings more people into my life and every day I get to "hopefully" inspire someone else. How blessed am I.

You can view more of Jane's gorgeous crafts on her amazing blog:


First up we have some gorgeous examples of Jane's famous layouts. Here is a bright and wonderfully geometric LO featuring Olde Curiosity Shoppe. Jane always has such a knack for creating masculine crafts. This is a heartwarming photo of Jane's son. The beautiful chipboard and clock gear embellishments look amazing against the splendor of Olde Curiosity Shoppe. It's the perfect LO for such a precious moment in time!

This project was one of Jane's crowning achievements this year, her famous Book Tutorial Series! This was the front cover of her book. This was an amazing 9-part series that took you through the creation of one of her gorgeous books. It including book-binding, tag-making and incredible tips for creating lavish layers. What an epic project! We were thrilled to be able to share it!

Last but not least is this delightful 5x8 altered art box and mini album featuring A Ladies Diary. Jane has such a talent for altered art. The elegant spirit of A Ladies' Diary comes to life in this sweet creation. It opens to reveal a charming mini album that's out of this world! This sophisticated work of art is yet another example of the wide range of skill and artistic talent that Jane brought to the Graphic 45 Design Team!
