Graphic 45 Life’s a Journey 12×12 Layout
By Sandi Nagel
“Hello, G45rs! Today I'm sharing a 12×12 layout that I made using the Graphic 45 Life’s a Journey paper collection and other staples by Graphic 45.
I used the Graphic 45 black 12×12 chipboard sheet as the base for this 12×12 layout. Because my son has loved trains ever since he was little, I decided to use a picture of his from 20 years ago; and since the papers are so bright and beaming with color, I printed his picture out in Sepia color.”
I used the Graphic 45 gears die to die-cut all the fun gears that you see throughout this layout.
And because every train conductor must adhere to a tight schedule, we have a clock piece that was die-cut with the Graphic 45 Clock die-set.
You’ll also notice that I used my Graphic 45 Washi to adorn the edges of my 12×12 Layout. Each corner is accentuated with a silver Matte Pearl Gem.
I hope that I’ve inspired you in making your own 12×12 layouts using your favorite papers and embellishments and dies from Graphic 45. Scrapbook layouts are super easy and quick to make! Thanks for visiting! Until next time. Happy paper crafting!” ~Sandi

Le’ Romantique Book Frame
“What a wonderful surprise to see the return of Le’ Romantique. Since I hadn’t discovered Graphic 45 when it was first released, this was my first time creating with it and I simply adore it! My parents have an anniversary coming up (their 58th!) so I created a book frame featuring a photo of them on their wedding day. This will be the perfect home decor piece for them to display year-round. With the addition of the new ornate metal corners and gold washi tape, and of course the rose bouquet, it’s the perfect mix for a pretty gift. I’ve provided a tutorial so you can make one too.” ~Annette
