Graphic 45 
Botanical Tea
Paper Cake Centrepiece

Hello dear G45ers! 
Sharing an OTP, a Paper Cake Centerpiece with 
Teapot Topper...what would a cake be without a topper right?
created with the gorgeous Botanical Tea DCE
Just love the pinks, greens and blues in this collection! 

How pretty wouldn't this piece look in the centre of a table 
of a party such as a High Tea?!
Tip : Adhere bows on lid only...being able
to open up the boxes. You can hide a little 
surprise/treasure on the inside.

I made this project with the help of my Silhouette!

This makes assembly easy and will 
prevent the box from falling apart.

curve using the back of pencil or

shapes, string, birds and flowers.

Graphic 45 
'Self Portrait' 
Film Reel Box - 
Mini ATC Tag Album
'Live Beautifully' 

Hello dear friends! 
So excited to share my first Design Team project as Graphic 45 
Brand Ambassador. was asked to create a project that reflects me as an 
artist using my favorite paper medium and go-to technique!

I decided to make an off the page project...
(for those who know me...know this is what I LOVE to do!) 
I have decided to combine one of my favorites Portrait of a Lady Collection with 
Botanical Tea DCEI looooove pink and the colours in Botanical Tea were a 
perfect match to the green and gold in Portrait of a Lady
My favorite paper medium is black cardstock and go-to technique would be 
chipboard pieces embossed and die cuts for layering!

But first an Introduction...
My name is Tanya Cloete (aka Tanya Scrap).
I live in Pretoria, South Africa. Pretoria is the administrative capital of 
South Africa and is also known as 'Jacaranda City' for its thousands 
of Jacaranda trees - Wikipedia. Cannot picture this city without those pretty little 
purple flowers! I am what you would call an avid scrapper.I spent most of my 
time crafting away in my little piece of heaven, my happy place. 
This all started about 7 years ago seeking a hobby to keep me busy.
I have always loved making crafty things as far as I can remember 
but never imagined that scrapbooking/paper crafting would develop 
into such a passion.I still love every single moment of my crafty journey! 
I enjoy creating Single Page Layouts, Mini Albums, Mixed Media pieces, 
Altered Art,and Cards but my love lies in creating Off the Page projects! 

A special thanks to the wonderful Graphic 45 Family 
for this AWESOME opportunity to be on this FABULOUS team 
and to be the first South African to represent their 
AMAZING brand - a HUGE honor!!!!
