Sun Kissed Suitcase & Album

Graphic 45 never disappoint! The ‘Sun Kissed” is fantastic! Beautiful colors and images are so inspiring. I loved the white outline around most of the images, I think this is a new thing which has not been done until now in any other collection. I hope you will like my travel suitcase and a matching album, full of the sand, water and warm sun 🙂 “ ~Alexandra

Midnight Masquerade Photo Storage Box

"Today I want to share with you a photo storage box and a tutorial for creating it. The project is quite easy to make and I hope you will enjoy it.

For embellishing the box I’ve used the paper from the Midnight Masquerade collection. The purple colors in the collection are my favorites, so I tried to use a lot of purples." ~Alexandra
