Graphic 45 Design Team Introduction....

Its is that time again...
...the time of year when Graphic 45 introduces the NEW Design Team! They have spent the past few weeks introducing the Team and the Ambassadors, now it is time for the Special Project Designers! I am so proud and excited to be, once again, counted as part of this amazing company and team! Myself, along with Annette Green, Maria Cole, and Robin Shakoor, make up the Special Projects part of the team. Basically, the four of us are given the task of creating workshops, classes, make-n-takes, tutorials, and samples for Corporate Graphic 45, Retailers, and Customers to use as an aid for making AMAZING G45 projects.

This year, I am once again creating project sheets. Click THIS LINK and go to the bottom of the linked post for a list of the currently available 2016 printable sheets.

My latest project sheet is a mini album project and set of three cards using the NEW Voyage Beneath the Sea Collection

There is also a matching project video!

I am so excited to continue my journey with Graphic 45. I started with them in April 2010 and spent three years on the design team, and then I was asked to stay on as a Special Projects Designer for 2013, 2015, and 2016. (I took a ten-month break in 2014 to heal from a hip injury.) I have created LEGIONS of projects with G45 papers and products! Here are a few of my favorites from the past 12 months. Grab a drink and snack, put your feet up, and enjoy!

Thanks to all my faithful Readers, who have supported me and cheered me on over the years. Your love for Graphic 45 has been fuel to my fire! I truly and honestly do this for YOU! When you email me to tell me that one of my tutorials helped you to create something, it makes my soul sing! Keep reading. Keep creating, Keep loving G45! 

Here is what is coming from the monthly project program...
...have fun while you wait! 


  1. Congratulations on being invited back on the Graphic 45 team, Gloria.It's not surprising, all of your work is phenomenal and very inspirational to me. Looking forward to seeing more of your beautiful creations!

  2. No surprise to me that you're with G45 as a Special Project Designer. You are one fabulous designer! I love everything you create.

  3. I absolutely LOVE the things you've done with the Enchanted Forest set. I always have problems thinking of something for the inside of my greeting cards and end up just leaving them blank. I can see from the picture that you have something inside the card you made from that set and I'm really intrigued. I know this was from a couple years ago, but do you happen to have a picture of the inside still? I'd really love to see it.
    I don't make cards to sell, just for personal reasons so you don't have to worry that I'll steal your copyrighted material for financial gain. ;-) I'm just looking for some inspiration.
    Thank you so much.
