"I’m Niccolò but all my friends calls me Nico. I live in a little city in the north of Italy, near the super famous city of love...Venice!

I’m in love with mixed media, cardmaking, scrapbooking and almost everything that concern the use of papers. I’m a vintage lover, i love to go in vintage shops and dicover new things that can be altered or upcycled. I’m also a steampunk addicted and everything that has a gear on, it must be mine!

Now, i hope you will enjoy my creations for graphic45 and i really can’t wait to start this amazing new adventure."

We love this altered box below from Nico. Check out the clever way he uses our Metal Key Staples and turns them into butterflies! Love!

"I love creating vintage projects and when i’ve seen this amazing Vintage box in a Scrapbooking store in italy I fell in love and I thought it would be amazing for my first project as a Graphic45 Design Team. I wanted to make it in a elegant vintage style so i decided to fancy cut a lot of these Graphic45 butterflies adn put them around the frame! "
