Farewell Album Seasons

By Marina Blaukitchen


“Two unforgettable years.


The dream was fulfilled. I still remember that day when I received so much support and encouragement from my friends that I decided to apply Graphic 45 DT Call for the years 2016-2017.

Graphic 45 Farewell Album Video Tour



I never thought I would be one of the chosen ones and it was at that moment when my dream began to come true.



They have been two very intense years in which I have enjoyed and learned equally, two years full of emotions and illusions.


Two years shared with the best brand and the best teammates I could dream of.

During all this time there has been an atmosphere of companionship and respect worthy of mention.





My thanks to the entire G45 Family for trusting me, for being so kind, for their support, for every pleasant word that they have to me and for all the love I have received from them.

My thanks to each and every member of the  Special Product Designers, Grand Ambassadors and Brand Ambassador team because they have been the best teammates I could have had.


I also want to thank all those people who have followed me on this blog, on my own and on all social networks and who have left their nice comments to my work. Thanks for the support and the affection.


This last project is an album dedicated to all of them, to always remember them and to be able to relive so many moments of work and joys.


You will all be always in my heart.” ~Marina



Graphic 45 Supplies:


“Though miles may lie between us,

We are never far apart,

For friendship doesn’t count miles,

It’s measured by the heart.”



We want to thank Marina from the bottom of our hearts for all the unforgettable projects she has shared with us these last two years.  We have been inspired by her elegance and style, and hope you have as well.  Leave some love for Marina in the comments below.  Thanks for stopping by!  


Happy Papercrafting!

The Farewell Mimi album is gorgeous, although I think it will be a “See You Soon” album.

Thank you Marina and G45, almost daily you share another magical G45 creation, you will be missed. The tradition will continue, its G45 and they are always searching for the best, other talented contributors will come, share, then also go, and you all have something in common, the gift of creativity. Us mere mortals lack the ability to take a stack of supplies and turn it into something beautiful, but because you choose to freely share your gift of creativity with us, that gift becomes to us something else, another gift, the gift of inspiration. Inspiration jumps off the pages, you can’t help but be moved by it, and you may create something as close to the original as possible or, instead we take that inspiration in another direction ending up with something just as wonderful, not forgetting to give artist credit where due. Either way, as humans it helps fulfill us and in some way calms our souls, and also makes the world and our surrounding just a bit more beautiful especially with your paper, lately my world has been crazier than ever so thank you for that, thank you very much.
