Life and Love Layout
By Pam Bray
"Life and love are very precious! I see this as a parent and a grandparent as I watch my own children guide and encourage their children. Sometimes paper collections just speak to the soul when you are creating, and I must confess that is what happen when I saw Graphic 45 Little Women paper collection. As individuals we grow each day…sometimes it is because of those that come in to our everyday path, sometimes it comes from our circumstances, and sometimes it is because it is just time to grow. So be brave, be of good courage, and grow with love and life." –Pam

Little Women 5×5 Mixed Media Box & Album
By Alexandra Morein
“Hello, all! We love not only making mini albums but also putting them in boxes. This has never been easier to do than with the Graphic 45 mixed media boxes, matchbook boxes, and book boxes. Pick up a collection, pick up a size of the box, and you are all set.
For my project today, I used the 5X5 mixed media kraft box and embellished it with the paper from the gorgeous new collection, Little Women. A tiny mini album (only 4.5X4.5”) is hiding inside the box. I love the combination of yellows, blues, greens, and reds in this collection, and those flower clusters are simply breathtaking!” ~Alexandra
