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!"

Dream catchers are my all time favorite cultural item. I've never seen them as beautiful as Miranda°s. Gorgeous!

Amazing! Dream catchers are my favorite! You're work is just wonderful! Magnifique

These projects are just so beautiful. I can only dream of making anything as lovely. Xx

I am glad to see you back♥ I love the paper dresses!

Amazed by all of Amanda's projects. Can't wait to see more.

So beautiful projects, all designers have such amazing creativity and imagination!

Beautiful projects and love the Snapguide too!

Прекрасные работы Миранды вдохновляют! А Морская коллекция Графики 45 так и шепчет: выиграй меня!

I've been following Miranda for years and I'm so pleased to see her on the design team again. It's going to be a super year on this blog!

Love love these projects! Glad you have another year to share with us!

I so hope it's me this time that has won as I love By the Sea so much.
Beautiful delicate projects.
Wish your products were more readily available in the UK.

I remember those pumpkins!! Miranda's work is amazing. Thanks for the chance to win the goodies. Love "By The Sea!"

Miranda's creations are always fabulous!

Wow beautiful projects.

Welcome back Miranda, I love your work!!

Envisioning the G45 pumpkins in a big wicker basket as part of my Fall decor.....lovely ideas and so creative, Miranda.

I love, love, love the dreamcatchers! Especially the mask one and the crocheted version! I would love to win the By The Sea collection since I live on the Crystal Coast of NC!

I love your projects!

Welcome back Miranda! I don't always w says post, but I couldn't resist with these fabulous works of art! The pumpkins are terrific, especially the coach. But I think my favorite is the dream catcher. I have no native American, but I have a fire.d who does. I think he'd lo e this. Of course if he made o we for his own, he might use a more masculine piece in place of woman's form. ;) I'm going to forward this to him and see what he think.
Thanks for Sharing, and keep up the good work. Jess

Thanks Miranda for so generously sharing your talent with us. Your projects are some of my favorites I have seen!
I will be making those dreamcatchers this weekend!

Miranda is, indeed, one sparky lady! (As in spark plug.) Graphic 45 puts her over the creative moon!

Wow Miranda! Magnificent work! I love the pumpkin and dream catcher tutorials. Truly fabulous designs all.

I love all the projects but the dream catchers are gorgeous.

Oh goodness, I really live these. I used to make dreamcatchers, but never as beautiful as these.
It's inspired me to try again. Thank you :)

Yumi's work is gorgeous and An Eerie Tale looks like lots of fun.

How can I buy any of these products?
