Unfold the Fun in this Floral Shoppe Mini Album - Magda's Cortez Farewell Post

Posted by Graphic 45 05/29/2018 68 Comment(s) Mini Albums,Videos,

Hello, G45ers!

 In this blog, we have an elegant and chic Floral Shoppe Mini Album to share with you full of fun interactive elements and tips.  This album and video tour have been created by the queen of style USA Brand Ambassador, Magda Cortez.  Join us in wishing Magda a fond farewell in the comments below.  


Floral Shoppe Mini Album

By Magda Cortez


Hi All… Today has been so difficult to make this post. This is my last post for G45 as a Brand Ambassador.. It has been 2 years full of excitement and joy, everything start with a dream and it come true with perseverance and patience.. Today I want to thank to Diane, Charee, Aimee, Jeff and all the others behind this wonderful Brand… I just can say.. “ YOU ARE THE BEST”


For my Album I use the new Floral Shoppe Collection Pack it has vibrant colors and I really love it!


I use also the New Dies “Large Tag - ATC Tag Flower Dies” everywhere.. Those leaves are the special touch to the complete album.


This album is so me.. With pockets, flips and flops.. I use magnets to keep the pages in place.


Tip: Use the Tags and Pockets to write journals and embellish your pages!

Tip: I use the Floral Shoppe Chipboard as a closure using one metal brad.

I love fussy cutting and those pink flowers look so amazing!

Ok.. no more sadness.. Because this is not the end of the world it is the end of this wonderful journey but it is the beginning of another chapter of my life, let’s see where it takes me!!!.. And because that.. I want to show you this special album I made to add pictures of my MOM.. May is her B-Day Month and I want to give it to her as a B-Day Gift..


I did a YouTube mini video to show all the details in the album and at the end, I add a little surprise.. A review of some of my G45 projects as a Brand Ambassador I did in my wonderful two years.. I hope you like it!

Well, I hope you enjoy my last post and I hope you can continue following me on my blog and social media… I love you all!

I have SO enjoyed seeing your projects, and sort of getting to know you over your time at Graphic 45. You are very talented, and have taught me to branch out a little--it's only paper, don't stress about it. Thank you. And this project is really eye-catching. The rich colors of the paper look great with the flowers, especially the deep red. Nice.
