Another Day in Paradise Mini Album 

Tutorial by Maria Smeshkova 


“Hi everyone!

My name is Maria and I am from Kyiv (Ukraine).  But at the end of February 2022 we were forced to leave our house and look for a safe place. In June 2022 we went to Phuket island (Thailand), where we are living right now. I live with my husband and my little daughter. She is the main character in my projects.

2023-2024 Graphic45 Brand Ambassador


I have been crafting for the last 16 years. I love making family and travel albums and collecting memories there. I love paper and especially Graphic 45 paper! I was in the Graphic 45 design team in 2019-2020, 2021-2022 and so happy to be back this year!

For a long time I thought about what kind of project I could create to introduce. And I decided that an album about one of my ordinary days would do just fine with this task. I have already made such albums. And in 5-10 years they are very interesting to consider! I invite you to spend one day of my life with me.

I chose the Sun Kissed collection for this project, because I’m living near the sea now.

I used the Make a Splash stamp set to decorate the spine.

















I used Graphic 45 dies for making pockets, folders and envelopes. 





I also prepared a video tutorial, showing you how I made this album and the decoration process of one of the pages.
