Hello to all Graphic 45 friends!
My name is Larissa.
I live in the German metropolis of Hamburg with my husband and five-year-old son.
I came to scrapbooking over seven years ago through cardmaking. But my passion changed to photo albums very quickly. Meanwhile, I also have a lot of fun with 3-D objects and home decor creations.
Paper art influences my free time a lot. I enjoy to make videos for tutorials, process videos and overviews of projects. I like to find my inspiration from the collections, but also from everyday life.
I got to know Graphic 45 collections right at the beginning of my hobby. Since then I have been a fan and always fascinated by the designs and the assortment. So I am very happy to be part of the team now. Many thanks to the Graphic 45 team!

Circus Arena Diorama Tutorial
I am introducing my new project on the theme of “Self Portrait”, with this I would like to reflect myself and my preferred paper medium and show my favourite technique.
I have a lot of fun creating and decorating different 3-D objects and decorative projects.
I am so excited about the stunning and absolutely magical collection Come One, Come All! That’s why I had so much fun working on the Circus Arena.
I have documented the different steps in the video tutorial. I hope you like it.
In this project I designed the floor of the arena using mosaic techniques. It’s not difficult to do it, but it has a very pretty effect.
To embellish and complete the compositions, the motifs from the 12×12 Collection Pack and 8×8 Pad can be used. In this collection, I found really many adorable elements for fussy cutting in the Journaling Cards set.
Toppings are part of almost every project. For example, you can add sequins, holographic confetti, microbeads and splashes of color to the composition. It’s fun and looks good!
I sometimes bring elements of fabric into my compositions. This adds an interesting effect to the creation. This time there is even a cosy touch to it, as the velvet fabric is tactilely soft.
– Supply list –
A piece of velvet
One piece of light fabric with glitter effect
One large bead
A piece of wire
Glue and glue medium
