Happy Thursday, G45ers! Our Design Team introductions continue today with the magnificent Miranda Edney! Are you familiar with the incredible work of this wonderful artist? We are so honored to have her on our team for a second year. She comes up with the most creative, wonderful, unique creations and best of all, is so generous with her art. She often creates a tutorial for most every one of her projects, and today there are three tutorials to try. We will share beautiful dreamcatchers, dreamy fall decor, beautiful wedding memory keeping, and more!  This will be a wonderful day of inspiration, so scroll on to get to know the incredible Miranda!

Before we jump in, don't forget that you have today to take part in this week's By the Sea giveaway! Just comment here or on our Facebook page. The winner will be announced tomorrow!


Now, welcome Miranda to her second year on the Design Team!


"Hello G45ers, my name is Miranda! I’m from the sunny state of Florida where I live with my amazingly supportive honey, and our doggy and cat! When I am not out enjoying the beach, I am crafting!!!! It is my #1 passion, and few things make me happier! I have a love for all things altered! Also to create projects from scratch! I love all different styles and forms of crafting, and I always push myself to try something new and step out of my comfort zone!

My last year aboard this amazing team was beyond wonderful! It is by far the best experience of my crafty life :) The generosity and camaraderie of this company and my teammies has been the ultimate gift ! Hugs :)"

Miranda Edney's Blog

This first idea is perfect for the weddings you may attend this season. What a wonderful project to give to your loved ones! Miranda even provides a tutorial so you can try one yourself. This is a brand new project we've never shared from Miranda!

"One of my assigned projects this month was wedding themed, couldn’t have been better timing! My honey’s cousin is getting married, and they are staying here with us for a few days before. Her fave color is blue, so I broke out the glorious Botanical Tea Blues! I was torn between a little picture easel, or a memory box. So I combined them. PIcture display in the front, and the back has pockets and tons of tags for little memories. First dates, promises to each other , etc… We had fun coming up with the categories for them. Hope you all like it and will give one a try, super easy! I have a Snapguide tutorial :)"

This project was a hit from Miranda! We love this Couture dressform collage complete with a set of beautiful paper dresses!

"As soon as I laid eyes upon the Couture range, I had so many visions of making cute clothes out of it! Too bad I don’t have any barbie dolls left these days, they would be sporting only the best! This piece was very fun! The fussy cut dresses were so easy to use!"

"To me nothing says Fall Decor better than pumpkins! Once I got started on these, I couldn’t stop myself! Graphic 45 papers were absolutely perfect for the color schemes I wanted to go with!  I wanted to share with you all 3 different ways ( and  tutorials) to create pumpkins for your home decor. These vary in difficulty, from the super quick and easy treat boxes, to the more advanced pumpkin carriage. All of them are easily achieved, and I hope you will give them a try!"

We've had so many emails and excitement about these dreamcatchers. These are just so stunning and completely handmade by the wonderful Miranda! Take a look below, and even try them with her great video tutorial.

"As a child my stepmother taught me how to make dream catchers! I just LOVED the idea of them! And after seeing these again recently, I was so inspired to try them again….. 20 years later! But this time with a Graphic 45 twist!!!! These were very fun and therapeutic! Once I created one, I couldn’t stop! I did different themes, all G45 inspired! My 2 personal faves are the one with the mask and the one with the wings :) Those wings were  a labor of love! You can recreate them just printing out a template off the internet and cutting your G45 papers to fit! Time consuming, but so worth it!"
