YumiMuraedaProfilePic-250W-06102015I am 60 years old, and I live with my husband and 22-year-old daughter in Yokohama Japan. I was working as a graphics,package,toy and theme parks designer in US 13 years. Then last company they sent me to Japan and worked with Sanrio to make 2 theme parks. At that time I met my husband and marriage then started live in Japan again lol. I was away from design work 20 years, but 4 years ago very fortunately I encountered Graphic 45 paper company and since then I was enjoying paper craft every day, sooner I started home class almost every week. I and my students are always happy together making paper arts. Also I was very honored to chosen a design team member of Graphic 45 2014-2015.This one year made me a Happiest artist on the World! Thank you so much G45!

  1. How can you not smile when looking at Yumi’s fabulous creation! What a treat it would be to view her creation in person. Her fussy cutting and attention to detail is amazing. Thanks for sharing Yumi & I hope to see more of your works of art.

  2. Wow! Stunning workshop! It was so wonderful to hear Yumi’s enthusiasm for crafting and her love for sharing it with others. This has been one of my favorite feautures ever, thanks PLL!

  3. WOW! What a GORGEOUS project! The patience and creativity…I’m just so very in awe. ♥

  4. This is totally amazing! The beautiful use of the papers and the attention to detail created this unique project. Yumi’s talent shines through on this lovely piece of art.

  5. What a divine creation!! LOVE all the little details like the furniture, food items and the chandelier!! Absolutely magnificent! TFS!

  6. Oh my goodness. So adorable and talk about a labor of love. Thank you so much for sharing. I just love Yumi’s little house. Graphic 45 Design Papers were just perfect for this. I love their DP’s and have been a long time fan and customer.

  7. It’s amazing! Such a lovely doll house (every girl’s dream) and so much work to make it (but I’m sure it was also so much fun).

  8. A beautiful and unique project! I love anything with Graphic 45. Yumi, you are one talented lady!

  9. This French doll house is stunning! There are no other words to describe all the wonderful things she has done to create this masterpiece. Graphic 45 is a remarkable company!!

  10. So many tiny details!. It does take lots of patience to create something like this. I don’t know that I would have the patience to make a miniature scene. On the other hand, I would love to make cards and a mini album with Raining Cats and Dogs! Thanks for offering such a generous prize package. Here’s hoping…………..

  11. Beautiful work. You must have lots of patients to design and make such small things. Love G 45 papers. Use a lot of them. Edna
