Hi Olga, Thank you for sharing with us all your unique artistic elements. Graphic 45 is my favorite paper line so the video hit home to me. I love that there are color inks to apply on my next project. Your creativity is very contagious and very sensible to layering and added dimensional height to the eye of the creativity your are achieving for your beautiful cards.

Graphic 45 has the best paper line for looks and quality, in my opinion and many others too.i love the weight of their paper compared to others because I can fold it and abuse it while crafting and it turns out beautiful!

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.

Olga, I fell in love with your 2017 Christmas project with a box and tags. You used Parisian and added Christmas accents. The colors were blue and silver. I would love to make these as gifts. I can't find the boxes you used. I checked with Graphic 45, but they didn't remember.Can you help me find these little boxes?Thank you,Janet Parks
