A Graphic 45 Goodbye to the Brilliant Belly Lau

  Christmas Village Mini Album Set - Graphic 45 - Christmas Carol - Belly - 22

The farewells continue on this bittersweet time on the blog. Today, we big a fond farewell to the amazing Belly Lau! Belly is an altered art master. She would find the most incredible ways to create scenes, hide minis, and create memorable projects. Her work is always just stunning, and we will miss her so much! We are so grateful for your time on the team, Belly. Today, we celebrate her with three of her favorite projects from the past year! Take it away, Belly:

  1. How do you cre8time for crafting?  

Crafting is some time quite consuming not on the process of making, but on the process of thinking, getting inspirations, creating and problem solving. Me myself is a full time mother of two, I am only free in the moring when they are school, so I would mostly do the making in the morning, and do the planning, thinking or so in the evening when I am sitting on the sofa next to my families, while they are watching TV. I love to have my phone with me so I can scroll through all the FB, IG and Pinterest to get inspirations, and have my notebook next to me writing down the plans, the measurements or some ideas. I found this works good for me.

  1. What is your favorite G45 Collection?

My favorite G45 collection is Mon Amour, I love so much the elegent colors, black with deep pink which suitable for many kinds of project.

  1. How has your crafting style evolved in the last year, and where do you see your path heading?

In the past year, I’ve made a lot dimensional projects, they are super cool to be displayed at home for memory keeping. But other than this, I love home decoration too, and more, I might have more of my time in the coming year decorating my flat, this also includes making boxes using G45 papers and staples, of course.

Thanks for these great answers, Belly! Now, let's take a look at her work. First, we have this incredible village with A Christmas Carol with hidden minis and more. She uses our Window Shadow Box to create this masterpiece. So amazing!
