"Hello everybody!

My name is Galina Sazonovа and I live in Moscow, Russia with my husband and our two children.

I am a landscape designer, but in 2013 I discovered for myself a scrapbooking and it became an integral part of my life!

I get the inspiration from different things and events, as well as from people and emotions.. I really love life and love to do it better and more beautiful.) So in my projects I create a lot of colors and layers. Graphic 45 is ideal for my creativity!)

Wish you better things and to CREATE and CREATE wth G45 every day!" ~Galina Sazonova

 About Challenge


"The idea to create a Challenge was born in my head  a long time ago. The main aim was to tell an even greater range of scrappers that work with Graphic 45 - a real pleasure, it's not as difficult as it seems and that is the important thing to overcome the fear of beautiful paper and begin to cut out parts of the sheets. Challenge mission was: to create three albums of various shapesby my step-by-step tutorials.

 I was stunned by quantity of participants of the challenge and by ptojects! Stunning, sophisticated, complicated albums! It was a great challenge with a perfect jury: Annette. Nicholla, Donna, Katie, Tati - what a real team!!! Thank a lot for Charee Filimoehala! She are so kind and helped me soo much to create this Challenge! Thanks a ton for ALL Graphic 45 TEAM, they inspire us to create amazing projects! Graphic 45, we love you!!!!!" ~Nadya Lifa

thanks for sharing some amazing projects.

Omg!! Such beautiful creativity. I love it!!

Amazing projects as always!

Wow... overcoming the fear of beautiful paper... that statement hit so close to home it's almost an Eerie Tale in itself. But I am slowly overcoming that fear and having a blast doing it.

AMAZING!!!!! What fantastic mini albums.

Nadya Lifa's work is divine, and the challenge she created received insanely beautiful entries. I went through most of them and you would not believe how fast my inspiration file grew. Many of the projects present a take on Graphic 45 and albums I haven't seen anywhere else. If you haven't already, I urge you to click on the links on Nadya's challenge pages, because they will connect you with the artistry of amazing scrapbookers.

Wonderful, love them xxx

I have always loved your products, but what she did with these albums....amazing!

Galina, your projects are just terrific! I see a DT for G45.

These projects are amazing! Would love to win Halloween giveaway because it is my fav time of year.

I cannot get over the time and detail that went into these projects. Even if I held them in my hand I would not be able to see everything that she put into these. What a wonderful way to showcase these beautiful and unique papers.

Oh my crafty goodness, these Mini albums are fabulously creative. Love them. Especially the halloween mini. Amazing work!!

Wow, she has some
beautiful work here.
Love seeing it all.

I've never won anything like this before but your paper s beautiful and mostly out of my price range to get a whole set anyway. So I'll keep entering these in hopes I'll get really lucky. Thanks for the chance

What amazing projects! I hadn't seen any of her work before today and I'm blown away! Keeping this one for inspiration!

Thank you so so much!!!!! Galya, bravo!

When you said we had to see her work you were not joking she takes the art of papercrafting to a whole new level! Just stunning!

Galina - super star!!!

Oh my goodness! Those albums are not-from-this-earth!

There are no words to express how overly magnificent these works of art are!
I wish I could do this.

How beautiful these are. How many hours does she have in one of these? Where does she get her inspiration? I need to get my craft room organized so I can play and design from her examples. Now all I need is the Graphic 45 papers and the time.

What lovely keepsakes these would make for a new baby.

Beautiful, amazing projects.Very inspiring. Shirley N.Z.

Beautiful and creative works of art!
