Hello G45ers,

Happy Tuesday and welcome to another day of joy here at Graphic 45! We are super busy in preparation for CHA and it's really exciting! Today you'll get to see some fun behind-the-scenes photos as we get our booth set-up for CHA in Chicago. Plus we've got some gorgeous new crafts from Kristin Wilson and Denise Hahn that feature Nutcracker Sweet! These crafts are so beautiful! You are sure to get inspired to use this incredible new holiday collection! After all, it's never too early to start thinking about your holiday crafts! But first we thought it would be fun to share these great photos from CHA! This week we'll be bringing you a lot of wonerful photos from our CHA adventures. Right now we're busy getting our booth all set up for the big show. We really love to go all out at CHA and make our booth as beautiful as possible. Here you'll see our booth as we get it all set up. It's not quite in its full grandeur yet. As you can see we still have a little more unpacking to do. But we're infusing our booth with lots of positivity, gorgeous crafts and a ton of Graphic 45 vintage charm! Take a look!

It would be a dream come true to see it all in person, but since that's not going to happen, thanks for sharing your experience!

Wow, the display toppers (not sure what to call them) designed for your booths are incredible. I just know people talk about visiting Graphic 45 as they plan their trip to CHA. Beautiful. So much eye candy!

You never disappoint with your CHA booths. I always enjoy watching all the YouTube videos from CHA, but I am doubly happy when I find the ones showcasing the G45 area.

I think what I love about your line is the colors, creativity, and happiness it sends off. You are very positive and happy people and it shows with each of your products.

Keep up the smiles and creating. I'm always saying "Next" and ready to go.

Amazing!!! Oh how I wish I could have made it to CHA. Love the projects, fabulous and so inspiring. Can't wait to see all the new lines up close and personal.

Gorgeous cards.

I would love to be there. I hope you have a great time. I love the projects. Thanks for sharing.

I thought your booth even looked great in boxes. I wish I was a G45 Staple , then I would be on that shelf with Aimee. It wa also fun to see Jim the Gentleman Scrapper finishing his project. I cant wait for more pictures and some videos. Lanna from SLC, Utah.
