Raining Cats and Dogs Altered Box and Mini Album
with 60 Second Tutorial

“Hi Graphic 45 Fans! Do you have pets? I do! I have a Toy Yorkie named Charlie and a Tabby Cat named Gracie. They are the same age which is fun. Our cat thinks he is Charlies brother and it is always fun watching them play together and I love taking photos of them. They can be so mischievous at times, lol.  Graphic 45 Raining Cats and Dogs Deluxe Collections Edition is the perfect collection for all your pet photos for making layouts, minis, altered projects or cards.


  1. Taking photos of pets, inanimate objects, scenery, etc will make fabulous keepsake minis to share with family and friends.

  2. Save small boxes to store keepsake albums and memorabilia in.
