I watched Aneta's unboxing video and I am so glad I did. Lot's of wonderful things - just watching had my mind whirring thinking of everything I could do with that stuff - BUT I am totally in love with the Ladies Diary Collection.....pennies are hard to come by (for me) these days, but I am saving like crazy to get this collection before it's gone!

Beautiful album! And I really enjoyed the unboxing video - fun to see the products together like that. Maybe one week you could offer all staples as the prize? I'd love that!

Beautiful layout-love the dimensions. The page just pops out-so pretty. The unboxing was like Christmas so many awesome things love every thing G45-can't get enough of it. But my favorite staples are the ATC tags and the tiny policy envelopes. >^..^<

Hi - I look forward every day to the fabulous projects you show and describe. I have been wondering about the stamp sets - have you discontinued all stamp sets? I am an avid stamper and am searching for the matching sets.

What a beautiful layout, and wonderful tutorial. My scrapbook pages are not anything like this one...this should be framed!! Graphic 45 products are always so impressive and coordinate so perfectly

What a clever way to demonstrate some of the Graphic 45 products in their line. I see a lot of future projects for you with all of those supplies. I have the Ladies Diary collection but not much of it is left. Hope they will come out with again. Thanks for taking time to make this video.

Friends, Here is my story to the world on how i got my love back and saved my marriage. I really love James so much that i can not even do without. I was married for 7years with 2kids and we lived happily until things started getting ugly and we had fight and argument almost every time… it got worse at a point that he filed for divorce… I tried my best to make him change his mind & stay with me because i love him with all my heart and didn’t want to lose him but everything just proved abortive… He moved out of the house and still went ahead to file for divorce… I pleaded, cried and tried everything but still nothing worked. The breakthrough came when someone introduced me to this wonderful man who eventually helped me out with spell… I have never done things like this before but just decided to try reluctantly because I was desperate and left with no choice… He did special prayers and used herbs… Within two days james called me and was sorry for all the emotional trauma he had cost me, moved back to the house and we continue to live happily, the kids are happy too and we are expecting our third child. I have introduced him to a lot of couples with problems across the world and they have had good news… Just thought I should spread my experience cause I strongly believe someone out there needs it. You can email Dr joy via ( Don’t give up just yet, the different between “Ordinary” & “Extra-Ordinary” is the “Extra” so make extra effort to save your marriage/relationship if it’s truly worth can also call him or add him on Whats-app: +2347088404185.
