2022-2023 Graphic45 Brand Ambassador
Hello fellow artists,
My name is Madi Azar, and I reside in beautiful sunny Florida, USA. My husband and I are the proud parents of 2 incredible young people, one full grown son and our teenager Autistic daughter who is the inspiration behind our family art adventure known as Spectrum Art Creations on social media.
We started crafting as a motivation for my daughter to get through therapies and school lessons and soon realize that it was something that we both loved to do. Art allowed us to bond and taught us that anyone can craft. Crafting is therapeutic and healing despite of age, ability, or limitations. There is no right or wrong in art, just create whatever brings you joy.
I love creating and sharing tutorials that maximize your time and allow you to easily follow along (as a busy mom, I totally understand). I am eclectic in my style and love playing with everything from paper crafting to mix media.
Graphic 45 inviting me to join their ambassador creative team is proof that G45 believes in enabling and empowering inclusivity and promoting art at all levels. We are thrilled to be on this journey and hope that you will join us!

Interchangeable Magnetic Display Frame and Cards
As artists we love to create, and we pour our love, materials, and hard work into what we do. Sometimes the best part of our art is the ability to brighten someone’s day with something that we’ve made.
However, we fear that our gift might end up in a drawer, forgotten or worst yet, that it might end up in the trash! Yikes! The cruelty is almost too much to bear!
Well, that got me thinking….I love to create cards, but what incentive could I give the recipient, say my mother or my neighbor to want to keep and (dare I dream?) even display their card?
What if we created an interchangeable card display which we can add to throughout the year, and the receiver can change along with seasons, holiday, or mood?
Well, yes we can! For this project I chose to make a magnetic display frame and card set using the beautiful Graphic 45 Woodland Friends collection.
This collection features a vast array of animals and foliage which makes it perfect for layering and with the theme being a woodland setting, it can be both masculine or feminine, so it is perfect for just about anyone.
We have woodland friends peeking from behind flowers and metal pieces which is perfect for adding dimension and interest. I used the Graphic 45 Decorative Metal Clock set and the Rose Bouquet Bon Voyage & French Blue flower set to add the mix media element while still keeping the card neutral.
Finally to create the interchangeable magnetic frame I used the Graphic 45 chipboard sheets. This allowed me to make a custom frame and it was far less expensive than buying a premade frame. To dress it up I used the Graphic 45 Ornate Metal Corners. Viola! Custom, elegant frame in a snap and at a fraction of the cost.
If you’d like to make one for yourself, I have created a step-by-step video tutorial. I hope you check it out and make one for yourself or as a gift. Simply click on the link below.
