I'm all set for a new year of memories to creatively document and hold dear-- thanks Graphic 45 for the beautiful and inspiring new collections and artful pieces that bring it all together!


Basic Instructions to recreate your own:


1. cut 4 seasonal papers to back each window. insert papers.
2. line box with Washi Tape.
3. adhere/attach feet and drawer pull.
4. organize journal cards, cut-outs, chipboard accents, etc into drawer openings.
5. add tools and extras.
when it’s time to add to your journal simply grab your drawer and photos!" ~Denise Johnson
