We are overjoyed to introduce our 2016 Special Project Designers! You may wonder what our team of Special Projects Designers create? They create the project sheets we share with our store owners and here on the blog to create beautiful projects! They help us teach classes all over the world with their collaboration and creation of classes. Today, we introduce two of our Special Project Designers: Annette Green and Gloria Stengel. We love Annette and Gloria! They've been with the G45 family for years in various roles, and we don't know what we'd do with out them! Let's take a look at their awesome project sheets!


  Annette Green - Special Projects Designer for Graphic 45

"Hello! I’m Annette Green and although my 2 terms on the design team are now over, I am thrilled to be asked to stay on as a Special Projects Designer for Graphic 45! If you’ve attended CHA, or any Graphic 45 events or classes around the globe, chances are I’ve designed that project you made. What an honor it’s been and I’m looking forward to another year of designing for the best paper crafting company in the business.

Formerly a graphic designer by trade, I’ve spent the 15 years as a paper crafting enthusiast. What began as simple scrapbooking of our family memories has turned into a fulfilling career in the best business ever. I spend my days in my home studio creating and sharing art and inspiration through blogging, videos, and as an instructor.

I live in sunny Melbourne, Florida with my husband Paul of 23 years, our talented teenage daughter Jamie and our sweet, shy Sheltie named Suki who sometimes makes an appearance in my videos. I enjoy working out, eating healthy, and thinking positive thoughts daily. I especially enjoy reading, cooking and spending time with friends. Especially having coffee! (I’m a bit of a coffee fanatic, I’m afraid.) Paul recently retired, so life is taking on some fun changes. Who knows where I’ll end up? All I know is as long as I have my crafting hobby, I’ll be a happy, happy girl!"

Now, let's let Gloria Stengel introduce herself! We adore this fabulous designer!


"My name is Gloria Stengel and I live in beautiful, southern California, near San Diego. I am a Christian, a wife of 28 years, the mom of three kids, and the owner of two cats.  We are a homeschooling family, having homeschooled two kids all the way to college, with the last child now in homeschooled high school.

I have been hooked on paper crafts all of my life. I have always loved to color, play with paper dolls, and create "projects"! In 1990, I discovered rubber stamping and in 1996, I stumbled across "modern" scrapbooking. I love all aspects of paper crafting: card making, scrapbooking, mini albums, altered art, up-cycling, you name it! I am happiest when I am making a mess! It's the cleaning up part that I don't care for!

I have been on a number of design teams over the past few years, including over six years with Graphic 45. I was on the 2010, 2011, and 2012 G45 Design Teams, and then  became a special projects designer for Graphic 45 in the spring of 2013. I currently create projects for G45 retailer workshops and classes. I also work for the following: Canvas Corp Brands, which also owns Tattered Angels and 7 Gypsies; a chipboard company called Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts; a cardstock company called Cut Card Stock; and Really Reasonable Ribbon, an online ribbon store. I participate in the Heartfelt Creations Alumni Blog Hop each month, as well as managing a monthly blog hop called Craft Hoarders Anonymous.

I have a blog, a Facebook Fan Page, and a YouTube channel in order to share my creative work. Please visit my blog, Scraps of Life (www.gloriascraps.blogspot.com) for more inspiration and for links to my other 'hang outs.'"
