Join us as we begin our 2022-2023 Brand Ambassador introductions. To kick start the fun we are honored to re-introduce you to the classy and elegant Queen of Glitter, Anna Sigga. This year we have asked each of our Brand Ambassadors to take part in our June #G45Expression Challenge (create a project that reflects you as an artist). For Anna’s #G45Expression project she has created a beautiful set of Slimline Circus Mixed Media Cards using our Come One, Come All! paper collection and Glitter Washi Tape. Watch these handmade cards come together in this easy to follow video tutorial and be sure to welcome Anna back for another year as a G45 Brand Ambassador!
Anna Sigga – Iceland
I have been a paper crafter for as long as I can remember. My first crafty love was card-making, but when I discovered scrapbooking in 2005, I fell in love. That way, I combined my passion for crafting and memory keeping, and I have never looked back.
I love to create cards, altered art, mini-albums, scrapbook pages, and just experimenting with all things paper-craft related.
When it comes to my style, I guess I love soft and delicate colours, flowers are one of my favourite embellishments, and there is no such thing as too much glitter! I need to add a touch of ink on almost everything, and I think there is no colour as magical as emerald green.
Not only is this the best hobby imaginable, but being able to share my creative journey with so many like-minded crafters is lovely.

Mixed-media Circus Cards
By Anna Sigga
“Hello fellow crafters.
I just love all things colourful and mixed-media-ish, so I decided to focus on the card making aspects of mixed-media for today.
I wanted to create clean mixed-media slimline cards. I am not sure if you can make anything clean and mixed-media, but why not give it a go.
I had already carded the slimline card base, and I cut several colourful strips from one of the 8×8 patterned papers and a larger one as a background. I wasn’t concerned about measuring, but the background patterned paper is 1-5 inches wide.
I then inked the edges with the beautiful Graphic 45 ink pads and used the glitter tapes as a sparkly frame for the pattern paper strips.
I stamped the card base using the Script and Argyle stamps and added a touch of mixed-media with splatters.
I used the beautiful Mate Pearls in Gold and silver to finish the cards.
Thank you so much for stopping by, and make sure to tag your Graphic 45 creations so we can find them on social media.” ~Anna
