A Fond Farewell to Nadya Lifa!
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
We love how Nadya infused her love for gorgeous fabric, texture, and paper into her projects. This Time to Flourish card is a perfect example of that. What perfect details!

Now, how about this practically perfect An ABC Primer mini album! She uses our Tag Staples throughout and creates just a fabulous idea. What a fun album to store your child's school photos in!
This is one of the most gorgeous altered printer's trays we've ever seen! Look at those fabulous colors and stunning details. We love how she incorporated paint and such a whimsical color palette throughout while using Time to Flourish. What a beauty! Make it yourself with her Snapguide below.
We love this Artisan Style card and tutorial from Nadya. What stunning details! Nadya is a detail master and her composition is incredible.
This is just such a stunning project! She used Place in Time on this absolutely breathtaking handmade pillow. What perfect shabby chic details. Wow wow wow! She even shows you how to make one yourself below.
Nadya was also a layout master! Love this Time to Flourish layout. What a beautiful photo too! Isn't her daughter and she just stunning?
Christmas just got 10 times more beautiful with this gorgeous The Twelve Days of Christmas card. The fabric she uses is almost like snow! Wow wow!
Nadya, your artistic point of view will be so missed on our team. Your projects show your incredible talent in so many areas - sewing, papercrafting, altering, mini-making, and more! We are so grateful she shared so many tutorials for these projects. We will greatly miss you on our team and we cannot wait to see what you create in the days ahead! We know it will be nothing but beautiful and inspiring. Thanks for all you've done for the G45 Team!
