A Fond Farewell to Nadya Lifa!

ABC PRIMER Graphic 45 album_ Nadya Lifa  1

How we will miss the brilliant and beautiful Nadya Lifa! She is such a incredible and one-of-a-kind artist. She would meld paper and fabric projects so brilliantly and create just spectacular projects. She made beautiful creations of all sorts - layouts, mini albums, cards, pillow, altered art, and more. Anything Nadya touched she turned to gold! We will miss her incredible unique and beautiful ideas on our team so much. Today, we will share four never-before-seen projects and some of the highlights of her time on her team with many tutorials that you can try today! It will be a day to tomorrow. Also, stay to the end of the blog to see who won this week's contest. 

First, we have this amazing An ABC Primer altered Mixed Media Box from Nadya to help her daughter learn English. What a great gift idea for new parents in your life, or for toddler birthdays. A beautiful and functional idea!

"My little daughter began to learn the English language and I wanted to make convenient Alphabet cards, which will be interested for her! My wish come true! On one of the sheets from ABC Primer wonderful collection has a sheet with cards for the cut, I paste them on cardboard and folded in a box. I like to use the boxes, they are very original and looks amazing in any project, and the child is very convenient to store cards in a beautiful box!" ~Nadya

Next, Nadya reminds us that it's a beautiful day with this gorgeous Sweet Sentiments card! Wow, love these layers and gorgeous details.

"The minimum time - maximum results! It is very easy - to create beautiful card in 20 minutes! All you need - is 2 sheets of paper - for the support and for cutting, ribbon, lace, and the title! Just cut a lot of floral elements and combine them around the title! Have fun with fine Graphic 45 Sweet Sentiment Collection!" ~Nadya
