Keri shares a genius photo wallet with Raining Cats & Dogs. Love how she uses the floral embellishments on this beauty. Absolutely amazing!

"I found the idea for this wallet while surfing through You Tube and reworked it to suite Graphic 45’s Raining Cats and Dogs paper (my current G45 paper OBSESSION!) I love how the “wallet” flips this way and that and allows for tons of picture and journaling space in a small area." ~Keri

Lori found a great way to use those dollar frames you can usually get in the clearance section of craft stores. And how beautifully did this turn out! Love this. 

"Do you ever wonder around the craft stores and see dollar deals but you’re not sure what to do with them. I love to think about how I could alter and add to something to create that one of a kind special project. This was a dollar wooden frame I discovered and I just love the way the Raining Cats and Dogs collection made it stand out. I had intended to add a picture of my dog “ Finley” to the frame but once I was on a roll, I had so much Graphic 45 goodness that I just didn’t have room for Finley. Looks like I’ll be making another one of these and add my dog on the next go around."~Lori

First, we have this gorgeous Sweet Sentiments layout from the amazing Nadya. How whimsical, stunning, and absolutely breathtaking.

"Vintage photo shoot with my daughter inspired me to create this unusual LayOut. I wanted so much to bring to life a book of paper and it was very easy with the beautiful Graphic 45 Sweet Sentiment collection! As a basis, I took a few sheets that became a book. And then picked up the scissors and got great pleasure from cutting! This is so exciting! I wanted the characters from the book come to life, and it happened!" ~Nadya

"This is one of my favorite techniques: melt the photo on the background. I really love to do this. I've worked directly on the canvas and I prolonged my photo using acrylic gesso,modeling paste and paints. Botanical Tea collection is the perfect collection to complete my layout with flowers, birds and butterflies. To finish my page I used G45 stamps and twinklings."~Solange

Tip: To create depth in each section of the frame layer different papers and images adhering the with gel glue or foam tape and shape images with shaping tools." ~Andrew
