A Fond Graphic 45 Farewell to Sharon Ngoo

Graphic45 Sharon Ngoo Layout Ladies Diary

Happy Monday G45ers,

Are you ready for some incredible ideas to help enliven your day? Today we've got a wonderful range of crafts by Sharon Ngoo. She has been such a valued member of our 2012 Design Team and today we are honoring her amazing talent with a special farewell blog. Sharon wont be joining us on our 2013 Design Team but her future is very bright and we know she will keep inspiring others with her crafts for a very long time! Today we've got layouts, cards, altered art and so much more! It's going to be a lot of fun!

We also have a brand new blog contest this week! We thought we'd offer something bright and summery this week in honor of the beautiful weather! We are giving away a Tropical Travelogue and On the Boardwalk 8x8 paper pad, Tropical Travelogue Stickers and Alphabet Stickers, Antique Metal Door Pull Staples and an 8x8 Easel Album! That's an over $40 value! Just leave us a blog or Facebook comment this week for your chance to win. A randomly chosen winner will be announced on Friday's blog!

And now it's time for our fond tribute to Sharon. It's been an amazing year of inspiration on the Graphic 45 blog and Sharon has been an integral part of the magic! Her crafts always displayed such a sophisticated level of imagination and skill. She taught us new techniques with her fun and informative tutorials. She also had an incredible knack for creating the most awe-inspiring pieces of altered art! Delicate fussy cutting and fun uses of stickers and all of the Graphic 45 Staples were hallmarks of Sharon's unique style. Her crafts also overflow with love for her family and friends. Whether it was an adorable layout, heartfelt card or a lavish piece of altered art, Sharon always knew how to turn each project into a craft masterpiece. We are thrilled to have had Sharon's talents on our 2012 Design Team and we can't wait to see what's next for this very amazing artist!

We encourage you all to keep tabs on Sharon's creations by visiting her beautiful blog:



About Sharon:

Hi! I’m Sharon from Singapore – where the weather (and the scrappers) are always warm and sunny! 
I am blessed to be able to design and teach crafting for a living at PaperMarket, our local scrapbooking store, and even more blessed to have a loving hubby and 2 sweet kids who don’t mind the messes I make at home! I am honoured to have been a part of the awesome Graphic45 design team this year and to be given the chance to meet and share with so many wonderful crafters all around the world!

We begin today's tribute with this breathtaking Secret Garden card. This card truly captures the fresh and cheerful spirit of Secret Garden. It opens to reveal sweet sentiments and enthralling designs. You can see some of Sharon's famous fussy cutting and fun use of Secret Garden Stickers. This card would make the perfect gift for someone special in your life!

Here is Sharon's adorable French Country layout. We absolutely love it! Just look at all of that amazing fussy cutting! The use of space in this LO is incredible! The wide open spaces mixed with more busy elements in the center give it a definitive focal point. The sweet photo and heartwarming sentiment make this LO a true work of art! It's such a stunning use of French Country!

Here is another one of Sharon's amazing layouts. This one features A Ladies' Diary. Lots of pretty paper layers, more fun fussy cutting and dazzling embellishments make this LO instantly alluring! You can see how much love went into creating this precious LO! Sharon's unique and beautiful style shines in this endearing little treasure.

This is Sharon's amazing Secret Garden altered canvas. This is another example of Sharon's wonderful ability to "think outside the box." She combined wonderful composition with a few fussy cut elements, Secret Garden Stickers, Chipboard Die-Cuts and that beautiful altered Ornate Metal Door Plate and Knob. The result is this cheerful piece of home decor that is filled with family togetherness!

This is such a fun project! It's Sharon's Olde Curiosity Shoppe star tag book made from Graphic 45 Regular Tag Album Staples! It's basically a mini album in the shape of a star! This is such a clever idea! We love all the rich layers, paper stitching and perfect embellishments. This book is a true craft triumph!

This superb Olde Curiosity Shoppe 5x8 Altered Art Box was a part of Sharon's final audition for our 2012 Design Team. The attention to detail is out of this world! We were impressed by the uniqueness of this creation. It opens to reveal a closet, complete with little handmade accessories to hang on the rack and place on the shelves! This creation definitely caught our attention and helped solidify our choice to bring Sharon on board for our 2012 team. Obviously we are so thrilled that we did!

Last but not least is this astonishing Halloween treasure. It's a handmade grandfather clock that's decorated in Happy Haunting! This is another great example of Sharon's boundless imagination. This brilliant craft would make a perfect piece of holiday home decor! It also captures the fun-loving spirit of Happy Haunting! It's smart, stylish and charming as can be!
