Sun Kissed by Graphic 45 - Collection Review Video


Surfboard Frame & Ocean Fun Box

By Magda Cortez


“Happy Sun Kissed Day! Yes! I’m so happy today because the cold days are gone once you start working with these beautiful papers! Sun Kissed Paper Collection is sooooo Beautiful! I’m sure you will love it!


This time I’m going to show you my two projects I did for Creativation… One little 3D box and the surfboard who is a little Photo Frame…


For the tiny box I use the ATC BOX in black.. It saves you a lot of time if you don’t want to make your own box from scratch it is a great idea!


I love fussy cutting and those little turtles are so cute.. To give dimension I use one of those tools to curve the paper also for the flowers in the front.. Mmm I can’t remember the name .. but you can use a ball pen without ink :P and a soft mat to curve the paper.


For the Photo Frame I draw hand free a surfboard it was so easy then I cut it in chipboard it measures 8” x 4” approximately.


I love love the result.. I very colorful and dimensional photo frame! I hope you like this collection is so beautiful and it’s just ready for our sunny summer vacations!

Sun Kissed Tag Album

By Sandy Trefger


Tip:   Take advantage of the back of each tag to create a place for photos by cutting and attaching patterned paper photo mats. I like to add thicker embellishments such has the ribbons and flowers to the front of the tag page and then keep the back flat for photos by adding just a fussy cut element.

LOVE the surf board! This collection would have come in very handy when I made the decorations for my daughter's baby shower. They love Hawaii, and wanted a beach theme. It turned out great, but these would have been wonderful. I will look for these papers at the S&S Expo.

Fantastic inspiration and out of this world collection. I was born and raised in Miami (a very long time ago) and beach decor is my absolute favorite. This collection brings back such happy memories-makes me a bit homesick for the good ole' days.

Henderson Elizabeth Dr joy is a trust worthy spell caster and he will be of great help to you. I never believed in spell casting but After 4 years of marriage my husband left me because I lost my womb, and i was unable to give birth to children. I felt like my life has come to an end, and i almost committed suicide, i was emotionally down for a very long time, but thanks to this spell caster called Dr joy whom i met online after my friend Becky Ross told me how he also helped her to bring back her husband in less than 2 days. I believed her and decided to give Dr joy a try and i contacted him on his email and explained my problems to him. He laughed and told me that In less than 2 days, my Husband will come back to me again, and that he will restore my womb and i will give birth to children. At first i thought it was a joke but i took courage and believed as Dr joy has said and it did happen just as this Great spell caster said, My husband called me and was crying, begging for forgiveness. I forgive him and today i am so glad that all worries and problems has gone away, and we are even happier than before, another good news is that i am pregnant now, and very soon we will have our baby. Dr joy is really a gifted and a powerful spiritual man and i will not stop publishing him because he is a wonderful man. I advice you all If you have a problem and you are looking for a real and genuine spell caster to solve all your problems just Contact Dr joy on his email on because he will always help you to solve all problems. Once again thank you Dr joy. Thank you, thank you. you can also call him or add him on Whats-app: +2347088404185.
