Olga shares a personal project today, and what a gorgeous altered frame! The flower framing is just perfect.

"There is my grandmother’s spoon in the center of the frame.This spoon is 134 years. This spoon is very important for me as rewinds me about my grandmother and her house in the village. I remember the smell of roses in her garden and a little butterflies flying around it. I am going to hang up this frame on wall in the dining room." - Olga

Susan shares a floral masterpiece. We love this mini album, don't you? What a great way to remember a wonderful vacation.


"Graphic 45’s new Botanical Tea collection is such a pleasure to create with. I made this mini album using Graphic 45’s Staples Tag Album, using both the regular and large tags, and cutting them to create a layered page effect. The pages of the mini album were lined with the blue-hued pages of Botanical Tea, then layered with lots of detailed images cut from the papers and flowers of a complementary hue. This album is a work in progress, where I’ll be adding tag pages as and when I create them. That’s the beauty of having a flexible binding of simple yet elegant blue ribbons, which can be untied to accommodate more pages." - Susan
