Yumi Muraeda – Japan


“Hello everyone who loves Graphic 45 in the world!

I am an ambassador for Graphic 45 this year again, and I am so happy!! Thank you very much. I sincerely thank you to Charee, Aimee, Jeff and my dearest Diane.


I am Japanese and live in Yokohama with my sweet husband. I am teaching paper craft in my atelier and having the show and shop sometimes in a department store.

I attend AFCI in winter and MMS in summer, so when you see me please say” Hi,” I love to become a friend to you!


I am thinking of spreading the beautiful paper of Graphic 45 to more people as the determination of this year.

I would like to tell a lot of people how much I can make happy time using this paper and how much I will be healed by looking at the work I created.


Everyone, I will make lots of fun works this year.

Please look forward to it.

Tip: I used this green light from Rure Fishing LED light


I made 3 drawers, this place you can put in small album or some accessory




I like this funny shape shelf, I made 2 of this but only one space so I add Bottle tower.



This table is made nice Lacquerware with marble top I think!
