For those of you unfamiliar with Graphic 45, we’d like to take a minute to re-introduce them to you.
Graphic 45 is an award-winning scrapbook and paper crafting company— owned and operated by a mother and her two daughters.
Diane Schultz—Designer and CEO (aka mother)
“I’m passionate about being creative and eager to make it possible for others to find their creative voice. My background includes stints as a designer for, McCalls, Simplicity, Vogue/ Butterick, Mattel Toy Company and a host of other jobs that each, in some way, led me to what I do now. At 45 I went back to school and got my degree in graphic design— I named the company to celebrate that achievement.”
Aimee Filimoehala —Director of Operations
“I wear a lot of hats and love it that way. Business, marketing, operations, etc. have made me a pro at multitasking (aka juggling‑figuratively and literally). When we launched Graphic 45 in 2008 we had no idea what was in store, working together as a family has been an amazing journey that we all feel so grateful to be apart of.”
Charee Filimoehala —Director of Customer Service and Social Media Coordinator
“I joined the team in 2009 and haven’t looked back…what a life-changing experience this has been. I love working with and around creative people and products (not to mention I like my co-workers quite a bit). I spend my days working with our friendly stores and talented design team…the occasional trip somewhere warm is pretty nice too.”
Together we create vintage inspired crafting products that capture the flamboyant style of the 1920’s and 30’s – with vibrant color, irresistible texture and imaginative design to create products with decades-old appeal that’s both fresh and familiar. Let our products inspire your next scrapbook layout, card, album or home decor project.
Graphic 45 Designer – Ginger Ropp
Our Graphic 45 Guest Designer for this week is Ginger Ropp who is part of the 2014 Graphic 45 Design Team. You can see Ginger’s fabulous project below, but first, here is a little more about her:
Hi, my name is Ginger Ropp. I am so excited to be a part of the Graphic 45 Design Team for 2014. I live in Renton, Washington with my husband of 27 years. I have two beautiful grandchildren that are an absolute joy.
I started papercrafting several years ago. I enjoy creating mini albums, layouts, cards, and altered projects. I love teaching and sharing my projects with others through my blog, you tube channel, as well as in a classroom environment at a local scrapbook store or retreat.
My husband and I love to travel and enjoy just relaxing on a sunny beach.
