A Fond Graphic 45 Farewell to Yumi Muraeda

Yuyu3CHAHome Sweet Home stand Card with Easel Box5

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. 

First, we have this Home Sweet Home photo stand and tag set. We love how this folds to reveal all the treasures inside! Just another example of Yumi's incredible cleverness with her work.
