We are proud to present a Mini Album that will capture memories for the entire year. This scrapbook is full of fun flips and interactive details and comes complete with a video tour and a step by step tutorial. This gorgeous mini has been created by the Master of DIY Albums, Brand Ambassador from Ukraine, Maria Smeshkova. For Maria's #G45Selfie project she has pulled out a handful of Graphic 45 collections and mixed and matched them to represent all four seasons in one album. This will be a treasure to flip through for years to come. So grab your papers and scissors and create your own treasure.
Maria Smeshkova – Ukraine
2019-2020 Brand Ambassador
“Hello! My name is Maria Smeshkova. And I’m so happy to be in G45 team! I live in Kyiv, Ukraine with my husband and two-year-old daughter. I'm a professional photographer. And I have been crafting for the last 12 years.
I find my inspiration in a new city or country. I especially like making family and travel albums and collect memories there. Also, I want to share my experience and I have a popular YouTube channel.
G45 Selfie "Four Seasons"
Hi everyone! I’m in team Graphic 45 and I’m so happy! It was my big dream!
I live in Kyiv (Ukraine) with my husband and little daughter. I am a photographer and I’m taking a lot of photos. I’m making many albums for them and I love to work with beautiful Graphic 45 paper.
I can’t choose only one favorite collection and I like to mix so I used many different papers in my new project. It’s photo folio for the best photos of the year. And I wanted to do every month unique. I was inspired by the Place in Time collection.
I used flower dyes for decoration cover.
I cut this house from a paper sheet and use it as a pocket.
I used Christmas Magic 8×8 Collection for this month and I fell in love with these babies! They are so funny!
Tip: I cut frames from ephemera cards and used them as photo frame.
Tip: Use the frame to highlight an item.
I’ve prepared a video with full project review.
