Fabulous Friday Challenge - Ribbon!

Friday, December 16, 2011

I don't know a single crafty person that doesn't have a nice stash of ribbon in their creative space somewhere! In fact, it is often one of those items we buy because it is so pretty but then don't use it because we don't know how or we forget about it.... well, we are going to help you out this week! We are challenging you to use Ribbon on your card, layout or project! Our design team has come up with some creative ways to use their ribbon stash! Check it out!

We are very excited to welcome back Graphic 45  as this week's sponsor!

Graphic 45 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 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—Director of Customer Service and Design Team Coordinator
“I joined the team a little over two 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 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.
