G45's 6 Favorite Layouts of 2018
Sun Kissed Layout
“Sun Kissed is the perfect collection for memorializing your beachside memories. The bright colors and playful images will pair perfectly with photos of your family enjoying a sunny day by the sea.” ~Maggi
Tip: Use layers of different shapes, i.e. squares, rectangles circles, to give your layouts more interest. Pop up some fussy cut images to give your layout some dimension.

Happy and Fun Layout
“I like looking through the pictures taken with my kids, it’s so fun to create the scrapbooking pages with their photos. This time I found a fun picture when they were younger and decided to created something with Fairie Dust collection
I knew that I wanted to add some watercolors to my layout, so I kept the white space for it and placed the background paper mostly in the right and in the left, just tearing it into parts.” ~Elena

Tip: Add dimension to your projects by curving your fussy cuts, such as these bottles. Not only does it add depth, but also makes the bottles more lifelike.
Love of a Family Layout
Penny’s Paper Doll Family
“When I was a child I used to play with paper dolls and created them the dresses and other clothes. My kids are not interested so much in this good idea. Anyway, I decided to create something that will remind me of the past.
Moreover, I decided to use the picture of my kids.
Twas the Night Before Christmas Layout
By Aneta Matuszewska
“Hello there everybody. I do not know about you but me and my hubby, we just love Christmas. My newest project for G45 is a Christmas LO made with the still fresh Winter Wonderland collection and a mix of older Christmas collections by G45.
#G45Love Mixed Media Canvas
By Olga Heldwein
The theme was love I just had to frame a photo of my parents. They were perfect sweethearts for more than 35 years. Always crazy in love and it was this kind of perfect love that you see in movies – till my dad passed away a few years ago. But still when I think about Love in general my parents just appear in my head as a perfect example.
You liked my previous video so you might check out this one again as I'm not learning my mistakes and my project went south again. But I pulled it off and left all steps in my process video as I got so much good feedback after last one.
This time my mistake was putting all this emotional value on my project and I really wanted to make something super special and totally forgot everything I know about framing photos. (Rule number one – do not attach emotionally to project until you’re done.)
