"We are all love to be different and have changes with the new season or our everyday mood. Today I'm  Lady Shabby-chic, tomorrow Lady-Vamp or Retro Diva…


Of course, in life we have not  opportunities to repaint the hair and change the style of clothing dramatically every day! But on the Lay Outs we can be the kind of people, like can not be in life! And if you're with Graphic 45 every day, you know what I mean! Collections G45 are so diverse that in each page I  can change my image)) On the eve of Halloween I want a little bit of vintage mixed with steampunk! Do you want to change your style or your life? Do it right now!

Hugs, Lady Mechanica (today)))" ~Nadya

This layout is adorable from the brilliant Annette. We love all the pictures with her family and her loyal companion, the beautiful Suki!

"I recently made the switch from traditional 12 x 12 scrapbook layouts to quick and easy pocket pages, and I love it! I still have the creative control but in less than half the time! And now that Graphic 45 created these fun journaling and ephemera cards, I can still make beautiful pages with my favorite products, super fast. Here I’ve used small pocket page protectors (6” x 9”). These pages of our sweet Suki came together in a snap. " ~Annette

Love the LO Nadya did with the Steampunk Spells, my favorite line so far, and Annette pocket scrapping is wonderful, her dog is so cute. thanks for sharing ladies :)

Fantastic dimension in Lady Mechanica. It's all in the details.
Such a clever idea to use Graphic 45 with pocket pages when quickness is desired, more than details. Suki is the detail!

Lady Mechanica is brilliant today!

C~O~N~G~R~A~T~S Debbie!
Beautiful projects! What can't you do with Graphic 45 paper & products??

great projects!

C O N G R A T S to Debbie V. ! ! ! ;)

This is so terrific, thanks for the lesson. Staples has inexpensive small three ring binders as well as a variety of pocket pages. You might want to check that out. Not everything created has to be complicated and be a masterpiece. Suki was the focus here. I love it!

Thanks for another posting of inspirational projects. So many layers on that scrapbook page! Pocket scrapping is not for me, but many others seem to enjoy doing it. More crafting power to everyone!

Stunning, absolutely stunning!

Yay for layouts - they seem much too rare on the G45 blog these days so this is an especially welcome weekend treat. Nadya Lifa's creative imagination makes me sigh with adoring contentment. And who can go wrong with Raining Cats & Dogs?

Congratulations to Debbie, enjoy your prize!! LOVE Nadya's layout!! The multitude of balloons is awesome!!
Annette's layout is so sweet!! Her dog is a beauty! TFS!

I love these layouts! I recently bought a pocket style scrapbook but haven't started working with it yet but seeing your dog one I can see I'll have fun working with the papers I love!!

Such amazign details!

Wow, Wow, WOW! These projects are so inspiring! Thank you so much for all G45 Gals do!

I just got my printer working again, or I should say recent program updates corrected the issue with my system not being able to locate my cordless printer. So now I can print off some of my favorite cat and dog photos and make a lovely album inspired by today's project. I have the collection, woo hoo.

Annette, isn't it fun to include your dog as part of your family in photos and scrapbook pages?!?

Просто завораживающая многослойность от Нади! Супер!!!

Congrats Debbie! Enjoy the awesome prize.

Beautiful layouts. Love the puppy in the last photo.

Congrats to Debbie!
The first layout has so many wonderful layers & elements to look at. The second is just cute cute cute. ..

G45 - you ROCK.

Great pages. I haven't done much scrapping in the last few years. When I started making cards, I haven't had time for it. I do think I'll start using the pocket pages, when I start up again. Thanks for sharing, hugs Jess

Very fun pages.

nice job, thank you
