2 For 1 Layout & Gift Envelope: Lena Astafeva’s Farewell Post

Hello, G45ers!

 Welcome to the Graphic 45 blog!  Today, we have double the fun for you with two projects from the master of layering and details, Brand Ambassador from Russia, Lena Astafeva!  First up we have a furry sweet scrapbook layout featuring our Raining Cats & DogsDeluxe Collector’s Edition.  Lena has really captured the love between baby and dog in these cute photos and elegant layout. Plus we have a bonus Gift Envelope Tutorial highlighting how much fun our Sun Kissed collection is to play with.  So hold on to your hats and get ready for some beautiful projects.  


Baby & Dog Layout

By Lena Astafeva


“I’ve made the layout with the photo of my youngest son and his pet dog Grig. My baby loves his dog very much. But it was difficult to take this photo. Sometimes my son wasn’t looking, other time the dog ran away. I like the collection Raining Cats and Dogs a lot. It suits for the decoration of the photos with pets. This project completes my cooperation with design team Graphic 45. I would like to thank the team Graphic 45. Two years have passed very quickly and they were fantastic and very exciting. I met wonderful masters. But my work is going on. As I did it before. I’ll create projects out of the paper Graphic 45. I ’m going to make a lot of new, interactive, rotating and shining very soon. I know, that the family Graphic 45 will watch and see all my creations. I’m glad about it. I am always very happy to see your comments.
