CHA -Paper lines & More: Graphic 45

Reported by Jessica Ripley

Graphic 45 is one of those companies that I ooh and ahh over just about everything they put out. This summer was no exception. They once again brought new and gorgeous lines to the show.

An instant favorite was Halloween in Wonderland:

We fell in love with the Alice in Wonderland theme!

Another favorite is the Steampunk Debutante line.

Even the Graphic 45 booth employees were in the spirit of Steampunk, which was just so cool:

Their Christmas line did not disappoint either, full of rich and beautiful images:

We also got to peek at their new Staples collection, which are kraft, black, and cream coordinating elements to mix and match to your heart’s content. Staples include tags, trim, chipboard elements, stickers, and more.

I left this booth feeling so inspired. While vintage looks were a big theme of the show, Graphic 45 truly has it down to an art!


Today’s sponsor, Scor-Pal, has a giveaway for 3 lucky readers!!  Just leave a comment on this article, (on our website in the comments) letting us know all the fabulous creations you would use the Scor-Buddy for and you will be entered for a chance to win one of your very own.  You have until  Sunday, August 1st at midnight CST to enter.  One comment per person.

    I have been waiting for a smaller version on the Score-Pal for a long time. It is just perfect to take along to crop outings. I use the Score Pal when making cards, envelopes and boxes, as well as other “projects” for my grandkids. It’s a great tool.

    If I won the Scor Buddy, it would help me make more cards for members of the performing group where I am the Executive Director. I design and make cards to recognize people who help with projects and cheer up those who get sick and must be gone from rehearsals.

    I’m a huge Graphic 45 fan and would probably try to get lost in their booth so I could just look at everything wonderful all night.

    I’d love to have a Scor-Buddy to carry with me when I teach and crop. Unfortunately, my wonderful Mother gave me a large scoring tool that works well, but I wanted a Scor-Pal and she didn’t realize the difference. So, if I could have a Scor-Buddy, I’d be headed in the right direction.
