Whether you are new to scrapbooking or have been creating for a long time, you have no doubt heard of the company Graphic 45! Graphic 45 is a company that is owned and operated by mom: Diane Schultz and her two daughters: Aimee Filimoehala and Charee Filimoehala. What is interesting to know is how the name of the company came about. A 45, Diane went back to school, got her degree in graphic design and named the company to celebrate that achievement. We LOVE that! Graphic 45 produces award winning paper collections. That’s BIG! Their vintage inspired papers and stamps are designed to capture the glamourous, whimsy of the 1920’s and 1930’s. They are the substance to so many beautiful scrapbook layouts, mixed media and home décor projects. Look no farther than their many social media sites [Facebook, Instagram & Twitter] to find amazing projects like the ones shared here!…
