Life’s a Journey



Graphic 45 Life’s a Journey 12x12 Layout

By Sandi Nagel


“Hello, G45rs! Today I'm sharing a 12x12 layout that I made using the Graphic 45 Life’s a Journey paper collection and other staples by Graphic 45.


I used the Graphic 45 black 12x12 chipboard sheet as the base for this 12x12 layout.  Because my son has loved trains ever since he was little, I decided to use a picture of his from 20 years ago; and since the papers are so bright and beaming with color, I printed his picture out in Sepia color.”




I used the Graphic 45 gears die to die-cut all the fun gears that you see throughout this layout.  



And because every train conductor must adhere to a tight schedule, we have a clock piece that was die-cut with the Graphic 45 Clock die-set.


You’ll also notice that I used my Graphic 45 Washi to adorn the edges of my 12x12 Layout. Each corner is accentuated with a silver Matte Pearl Gem.



I hope that I’ve inspired you in making your own 12x12 layouts using your favorite papers and embellishments and dies from Graphic 45.  Scrapbook layouts are super easy and quick to make! Thanks for visiting! Until next time. Happy paper crafting!” ~Sandi


Graphic 45 Supply List:


Other Supplies:

  • Ruler
  • Wet Glue
  • Scissors
  • Paper Trimmer
  • Black card stock
  • Foam dots
  • Die-cutting Machine
  • Double-sided tape (I use this to permanently adhere the washi tape)






Dreamland Tri-Fold Mini Album

By Ginger Ropp

“I created a fun mini trifold folio using the fun and bright Dreamland collection. I used the 12x12 papers for the folio. The folio measures 4-1/2x6-½.  This collection is whimsical and fun.” ~Ginger

Le’ Romantique - Deluxe Collector’s Edition




Le’ Romantique Book Frame

By Annette Green


“What a wonderful surprise to see the return of Le’ Romantique. Since I hadn’t discovered Graphic 45 when it was first released, this was my first time creating with it and I simply adore it! My parents have an anniversary coming up (their 58th!) so I created a book frame featuring a photo of them on their wedding day. This will be the perfect home decor piece for them to display year-round. With the addition of the new ornate metal corners and gold washi tape, and of course the rose bouquet, it’s the perfect mix for a pretty gift. I’ve provided a tutorial so you can make one too.” ~Annette
