Round 2 for Graphic 45 Design Team Submission

It's time for Round 2 of Graphic 45's Design Team call. I was fortunate enough to get selected in the top 30 finalists, now we are required to submit a video tutorial of a project and show three projects that best represent us as an artist.

Talk about nerve-racking. The video-making process isn't hard. I enjoy it. The nerve-racking part is not knowing exactly what they want to see. Are they looking at the project itself or are they looking at YOU? How you speak, how you present the steps, the quality of your photography? It's so hard to know. So, I stuck with a simple easel card with a few techniques that hopefully showcase my style and my ability to lead viewers through the project clearly. And I was myself.

So we'll see what happens. They will announce the final design team members on Thursday, April 25th (the day I leave for Ranger U!) Meanwhile, if you'd like to check out my video I sent to Graphic 45, here it is. Thanks for stopping by. Cross your fingers!

  1. GREAT card! I love how your card and beautiful choice of papers fit the card so perfectly! Love your mini and the origami piece as well and the cigar box...SUPER CUTE!!
    I also love how you were able to laugh at yourself with the outtakes-you know what they say...never work with Children or dogs! LOL
    Great work! :D TFS

  8. What a great video - super-clear instructions, beautifully centred on the action, a great easel card - how cool is that chalkboard stamping! - and lovely to see those other projects in full 3D glory... Also love the bloopers - guess Suki had other plans!

  11. Annette, I really enjoyed this video. Your card is lovely...great use of the G45 papers and your imagination. Your instructions are so clear and you have a wonderful presence...great teacher. I've always shied away from this type of card but I really feel that I could make one now. The other projects are amazing and really demonstrate your versatility as well as that of the G45 products. Loved the bloopers! I'm looking forward to more vids.

  13. Annette, Super video! Your card is beautiful and I love the pieces you did at the end especially the mini album (love mini albums, too). Suke is adorable especially in the outtakes. Can't wait to see the follow up videos. I can only imagine that with material like this you will make it to the top! Good luck!!
