A Fond Graphic 45 Farewell to Yumi Muraeda
We will miss Yumi Muraeda so much on our team! She had such an eye for 3D and dimensional projects. Each and every one of her projects were out of this world. She also did so many wonderful things with her mixed media projects. She would bring so much color to her projects. She would come up with the most inspiring projects. She also was a kind and wonderful person to work with. Today, we will share some projects we have never shared from Yumi with quite a few tutorials! Then, we will share just a few of the many highlights from her time on our team.
Next, Yumi uses one of our most beloved retired collections - Hallowe'en in Wonderland to make this incredible 3D scene! Wow - Yumi is so incredibly talented! What an amazing project!

Now, we're sharing highlights from Yumi's time on the team. This was a gorgeous Botanical Tea tea house that had packets of tea on the back with beautiful handmade paper teacups inside. What a treasure!
Next, Yumi made this stunning gift set using Time to Celebrate! What a fun party to attend! We included Yumi's gift box Snapguide below so you can make your own.
We love this holiday gift idea with 12 pouches to match The Twelve Days of Christmas! Wouldn't this be a fun gift to give someone. Or a great piece of home decor!
This was a beautiful Secret Garden album from Yumi that unfolded to have many wonderful creations inside. Love her florals on this!
This was one of Yumi's first projects she submitted to us. This incredible Couture creation inspired by the Getty Center in LA. The amazing ways this project unfolds and reveals hidden minis and secret drawers is just amazing. What a masterpiece!
Yumi, your projects were some of the most incredibly imagined we've ever seen! From recreating the Getty Center with paper, to beautiful party gift sets, to stunning mixed media - your work was just amazing! We will miss your kind spirit and your brilliant projects on our team so much. We cannot wait to see what else you create in coming days. We will be sure to follow your creative journey. Thank you for everything!
Keep Up with Yumi Muraeda!
Thanks for joining us for our Yumi celebration! We hope she leaves you inspired, G45ers.
Your Pals in Paper,
The G45 Family
