Much Love For Minis: Gorgeous Minis From Our Design Team

Hello Crafters,

Welcome to a gorgeous and fantastic day here at Graphic 45! We have the most amazing and awe-inspiring crafts to share with you. Today's creations by Yuka Hino and Hilde Janbroers of our design team are so amazing, they look like something out of a dream! You will see two marvelous mini albums that highlight some fabulous uses of our envelope albums. Yuka's whimsical Hallowe'en in Wonderland mini is made using our Kraft Envelope Album and it is so wonderfully clever! Yuka titled this sweet mini "Take Your Time" and it's obvious that she took her time creating every alluring detail of this magical mini. Check it out!

Here is what Hilde had to say about the inspiration behind this beautiful work of art!

"Here's a mini I made. It's called ' 10 questions to Amy'. I do this every year with my daughters. Ask them the same questions and see what they answer. Every year they come up with new fun answers. Its a great documentary! I could add lot's of journaling on tags in the envelopes....thats great for this kind of album." -Hilde Janbroers
