"My name is Nadya Lifa. I always say, that I have a clouds in my head. It is truth! I am a crafter and big-big dreamer. I have faboulous family: my husband, daughter, cat and dogs. They are inspire me every day to create something new with a peace of scrap-paper, heart and love!

I became to scrap in November 2011, now I am a scrap-teacher. I have on-line and live classes and my students love with me adorable Graphic 45 materials. I love Shabby-chic, vintage style and mixed-media. All I want is to inspire my scrap-friends to create every day awesome projects, do not worry and not afraid. JUST LIVE AND SCRAP!!! Wish you be in harmony with yourself and get fun with G45  and with our DT every time!!!"

Wow, wow! This printer's tray is a dream. We love the butterflies flitting throughout and the beautiful use of our Secret Garden and Place in Time collections.

"When I started to create this project, I wanted to invest in it an image of April.  I imagined what would be the forest home of the April fairies? What  they keep? Frames, cell, bouttle what else? May be  keys, clothespins..  I turned on the imagination and the shadowbox come to life.  Flowers, butterflies - all comes to life!

When you create projects with Graphic 45 materials it is so ease to implement your kid dreams! I really like it!"
