Graphic 45 Spotlight With Designer Laura Denison

Here is the latest installment of our Graphic 45 Guest Designers. Many of you may remember that back in April we hosted a Graphic 45 Week on the Paper Crafter’s Library Blog. It was week filled with projects and inspiration using Graphic 45’s Tropical Travelogue Collection. We had such a great experience partnering with Graphic 45 and their design team, and such a great response from you, that we’ve decided to partner with them on an ongoing basis. The first and third week of every month one of the Graphic 45 Designers will share a project they’ve created here on the PCL Blog. We started with our monthly designers in June and before I introduce you to our latest Designer, I just wanted to take a minute to re-introduce Graphic 45 for those of you that may not be familiar with the company.

Graphic 45 is an award-winning scrapbook and paper crafting company­— owned and operated by a mother and her two daughters.

Diane Schultz (pictured center)—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 (pictured left) —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 just three years ago 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 (pictured right)—Director of Customer Service and Design Team Coordinator

“I joined the team a little over three years ago 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 to a workshop or tradeshow 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.


Here’s a picture of their booth at the CHA show which absolutely blows us away every year! The artwork inside is absolutely stunning and totally unique. At the last show as we were speaking with Diane she told us that many of the altered pieces were vintage finds which she and her team transformed with their gorgeous Graphic 45 products. We can’t wait to stop by their booth at the Chicago CHA and see what they’ve got in store this year!

Here’s a picture of the Graphic 45 team – they’re always dressed in period costumes to complement the themes in their collections – every day of the show brings a new set of costumes. The ones shown below were for their Little Darlings collection.

My name is Laura and I live  in the beautiful Pacific Northwest near Seattle. I am married with two teen children and a menagerie of pets.

I am best known for my Mini Albums and “containers” to hold them. I love to think outside the box and use materials in unexpected ways.

I’m not very well off so I’m not able to order much but hope to get some paper very soon. That you Laura for inspiring me and finding this web site

I love the colors (G45 is the best when it comes to that, I think), but how she’s incorporated the album into the seat is ingenious. Thanks for showcasing her. She’s all about the details in any project she does. She’s one of my favorite papercrafters.

  15. Laura’s projects are all amazing. I have followed Laura for quite awhile now and her ustream classes are just great. I’m always amazed at what she can come up with. This rickshaw is fabulous and to think there is a mini hiding in there. It’s great seeing such talented people being showcased.

I´ve been following her for some years now, and she´s sooo much talent, that it seems impossible in just one person, but she really is, and I absolutely love all her work, and even more since she found G 45, which I´m using tons of too now.

  121. OMG!!! This is the neatest thing I’ve ever seen! I love G45 and Laura’s rickshaw is simply AMAZING! I just cannot fathom the time and effort, let alone the skill, that has gone into this! What beautiful work! You ladies ROCK as always! Thank you for sharing.

  122. I love it!! So unique, I think it would make a great decoration/favor for an asian themed wedding.

  123. AWESOME! I was really blown away when she revealed the mini album in the rickshaw! Beautiful work.

  124. This is the first I hear of G45. Going to visit their website right now and have no doubt that I will be a customer.
    This album container is amazing! What a great idea! I agree with others that Laura’s work is a masterpiece. CHAPEAU! As they say in french!

  125. So enchanting! We are so lucky to have such beautiful inspiration from which to draw. Thank you for sharing.

  126. I absolutely love punch art and this is sooooo clever…. thanks for sharing the sensational creativity…..and the opportunity for candy….

  127. Laura’s work is simply stunning! She is truly an inspiration! The Graphic 45 papers she uses make her projects Pop! Very creative and ingenious! I think the Rickshaw is a very playful piece. Not pictured here, but I think her Gypsy Caravan project she is currently working on is to die for! Keep up the great work Laura! I think it’s awesome to also have the opportunity to win all of that wonderful eye candy!!! I LOVE Halloween and what better way to create for it than with Graphic 45 supplies!! Thank you for the opportunity to win.

  128. Just love these Graphic 45 papers, and Laura’s creations, they are just wonderful!!!

  129. I love all of Lauras projects and have purchased many patters and completed them all. She is amazing.

  130. As always, Laura’s imagination is in high gear. Pair that with Graphic 45 products and you are sure to have a treat in store. Incredible.

  131. I am so enjoying Graphic 45. It goes with my hat collection and the things I like about the 20’s and 30’s. I just picked up the Bird Song Collection to do some scrapbooking of a trip to Japan and China and was blown away by the creative rickshaw that Laura made. What an amazing talent! Thank you for sharing.

  132. I have been a fan/follower of Laura for the past year and a half, and she never ceases to amaze me. I wish I could be more “outside of the box” with my projects and she is truly inspiring. The rickshaw is just one more example of her stellar work. Combined with G45; who wouldn’t love it and the Halloween package is to die for – really!

  133. I audibly gasped when this picture came up. Laura…the detail in your project is stunning!!! Thanks for also sharing a little more of the history and people of Graphic 45. I found it v v interesting. I find their product such a guilty pleasure but so worth it on all of your projects.

  134. Although I’m typically drawn to more contemporary elements, I have found myself rather liking the colours and designs being shown. I would not have the patience to put together the rickshaw and so am impressed with another’s intricate work. I think that there would be quite a lot of fun and exploration waiting for the winner of this package of goodies. Best of luck to all.

  135. What a unique, amazing, 3-d project. Laura is a fantastic crafter who really does ” think outside the box”. Well done. : )

  136. Awesome project and super creative! Oh my, I just love it! Thank you so much for sharing. 🙂

  137. The rickshaw is AMAZING!!!!! I wish you would share a tutorial. Graphic 45 is the best. I have loved it since the moment I saw their first collection.

  149. This is an amazing project! The rickshaw is just so cute – I love the realistic details and the movement of parts – the mini album hiding under the seat is such a lovely surprise!
