Graphic 45 Goes to Canada: Our Trip to Edmonton and a New G45 Blog Contest

Hello Crafters

Welcome to another fantastic week here at Graphic 45! Wow, it sure has been busy around here lately! As you can see from the photo below, we've been receiving packages from our 25 Design Team finalists. Oh, if only you could see all the wonders that are inside these boxes! We plan on posting photos of some of these fantastic projects very soon. We are overwhelmed with the level of quality and artistic vision in all of our finalists' submissions. We can't wait to share them with you. And don't forget that our new 2011 Design Team will be announced on April 1st! We hope you'll join us! Have a look at this mountain of boxes! Amazing!


We have another fun blog contest for you this week as well! Just leave us a blog comment this week on any day and you'll be entered to win this wonderful Graphic 45 prize pack! You could win a Domestic Goddess 12x12 Paper Pad, Chipboard Button Staples, Envelope Tag Staples, and Metal Tag Staples! You could make some seriously amazing projects with this great prize pack so be sure to leave us blog comments this week. A winner will be chosen randomly and announced on Friday, March 25. Hooray! 


We recently had the exciting privilege to visit Edmonton, Canada for the Memories Wholesale Retailer Event. Wow, what an adventure!  Everyone was so wonderful. Even though it was freezing cold outside, the vibe inside was nothing but warmth.

Here we are, all smiles,  with a bunch of our fellow craft manufactures (you many recognize a few familiar faces).  Thank you to all of our pals in crafting and to Treasured Memories for their kindness and generosity. We had a blast!


Here is a stupendous Steampunk Debutant project from Treasured Memories. Oh, so pretty!


Here is Diane and Aimee, co-owners of Graphic 45, standing in front of the gorgeous Curtain Call display at Treasured Memories. This display is so gorgeous and is covered in lots of stunning Curtain Call crafts. Unbelievable!


Thank you all so much for joining us today for our walk down memory lane of our Edmonton trip. We're exciting to read your comments this week! We'll be bringing you some amazing crafts this week so we hope you'll stay tuned! Just a reminder that we're in the middle of our Metal Staples craft challenge as well!
