Graphic 45 A Ladies Diary Folio

Graphic 45 A Ladies Diary Folio Journal
By Sandi Nagel


G45Tip: Use the Graphic 45 square tags to make elegant pockets for your folios and mini albums. Score the Tag at 3 1/2" from the bottom, then fold. Use your Graphic 45 square tag die to diecut the inserts. I like to diecut two inserts, using two contrasting G45 papers. This adds interest to the pockets. Eye-measure to trim the inserts at fold (of pocket), then glue them to the pocket. Also use glue to hold the fold over down.


I have a video that shows how I do this here.

My Mark McDaniel from Ohio USA, I'm married and blessed with 2 kids (male). Myself and my wife provides for our kids and make sure they are happy. One weekend while I was home, I noticed my first son rude behavior. I talked to him to change his sudden behavior yet to no avail. I became so worried then I searched online for every possible help I could get. A saw a comment of someone parent who had similar experience then I talked to them via email. They told me about DR Odinani Owell the great spell caster helped them change the life of their kids too who became so rude all of a sudden. They give me DR Odinani Owelle the great spell email then I wrote to him, telling him about my son sudden behaviour. DR Odinani Owelle the great spell caster gave me his words that in 2 weeks time, my son is gonna be back to his normal behaviour. Dr Odinani Owell the great spell caster asked me to make purchase of certain items which I did and the item we so cheap. I had doubt in myself that how can such little items bring back my son to his normal self until the fifth day of the second week. My son woke up in the morning, came to my room, began to apologies for his sudden behaviour. My heart was filled with laughter and smile arouse my face. I embraced him and I told him I've forgiven him. To others out there, don't keep your problems to yourself. Share it with a friend or search for possible solutions online. You too can write to Dr Odinani Owelle the great spell caster if you've any problem,,,,,,,, Here's he's email or

I cannot believe this… MY EX HUSBAND IS BACK TO ME!!! My name is Ivana Martins. This is a story of Dr Isikolo who brought my ex husband back to me in 2 days of contact. He told me me he would do it but i didn’t believe him but decided to give him a try and to my greatest surprise, my ex husband came home and started playing with the kids and gave me a kiss on my cheek, knelt down on his knees and begged me for leaving without a goodbye. I heard he had woman he was seeing before he left me and i was devastated which made me seek help in a spell caster such as Dr Isikolo. I also met this man through a testimony about him and i contacted his email at and when i explained things to him, he told me not to worry. I am very happy today that my husband who left me for over 2 years, came back home. I asked him what about the other woman and he said that was his past and nothing will ever make him leave again. I am thankful to Dr Isikolo. Contact him to help you now at You can also Whatsapp him on +2348133261196
