"Hi G45er’s My Name is Sandra  Also known as Sandra D Designs I am 44 years old and I am from the Uk, I live in a small town in Pembrokeshire, Wales with my Husband and 2 Boys.


I have always been Arty and Crafty from a young age but my Obsession didn't start till about 9 years ago when I became addicted to Papercrafts and from there my Craft Journey has grown to be able to do Craft Workshops and Weekly Classes which I love to Teach, My Love of Graphic 45 started around the same time and I have applied 3 Times before This Year to be apart of the G45 Design Team, So Keep going if it is your Dream too!!


Crafting and Teaching is a huge part of my life which give me great pleasure, I love to create Card and Albums mainly and my style reflects on the papers that I used so some can be a bit more Fussy than others, Oh and Talking about Fussy I love to Fussy Cut,  but Mixed Media is also a smaller part of my Crafting Journey.


So That’s a little about me I am super excited to be Graphic 45 Brand Ambassador 2020/2021 


Baby Keepsake Box

By Sandra D


Hi G45er’s How are you all Doing 

Today I am sharing my Self-Portrait for my first post 

I found this one a little scary I must admit, 

One because of finally being on my dream team and secondly 

because I love to make so many different projects.


So this is What I have made using the Beautiful Baby 2 Bride Collection, 

You might still have some of this in your Stash. 


A Beautiful Baby Keepsake Box. 



Inside Features a Photo Frame 

Also A Decorative Shadow Box  



Top Tip: Make sure your Scissors cut right to the tip for Fussy Cutting



Add Chipboard Elements and Fabric Flowers to add softness.


Top Tip: Use Craft Knife to cut smaller sections out before Fussy Cutting 



Thanks so much for Visiting today 

I hope I have given you a little inspiration 

This would work with all of the Graphic 45 range.” ~Sandra D

Welcome! This is such a beautiful project, and your tip to cut out the smaller parts with a craft knife BEFORE fussy cutting the whole thing is going to change my life! It will be so much easier that way! Thanks so much!
