Announcing the Graphic 45 Design Team Call 2013!


Hello G45ers!

Are your ready for one of the biggest Graphic 45 announcements of the year! Here it is!

Attention G45ers, now is your time to be in the spotlight! We see your talent everywhere and we want you to be a part of our 2013 Design Team! Below, you will read all you need to know to submit your creations to become a part of our exciting, fast-paced, creative team!


What are we looking for?

Graphic 45 paper and products are unique and vintage inspired, so we are looking for a variety of team members that can produce high quality cards, layouts, altered art, videos, and home decor projects that show off our papers and embellishments.

Our team is education-based, so we will need you to have good photography skills, the ability to create tutorials with instructions and size images for blog and website use.

This call is open to International and domestic applicants. Current design team members who have been on the team for one year and want to re-apply for a second year are eligible, but you must resubmit. You cannot resubmit if you have already been on the design team for two years.

How do I apply to be on the team?

Our design team search will consist of two rounds. Please read the entire contents of both rounds, as there is quite a bit of information.

We look forward to seeing what you submit. We know we will be blown away! So get busy creating and most of all, have fun!

In other exciting Graphic 45 news, we are celebrating a very special Graphic 45 birthday today! It's the birthday of Meggan Howell, Graphic 45 Customer Service Agent extraordinaire! If you attended last year's Scrapfest at Mall of America or CHA Winter 2013 in Anaheim then you may have met Meggan in the Graphic 45 booth! She is a superb member of the Graphic 45 team and we are so happy to be celebrating her birthday today! Get to know more about Meggan in this fun birthday interview!


Meggan, welcome to the Graphic 45 Team! What is your new role with Graphic 45? Have we seen you on G45 trips before?

I guess my new role at Graphic 45 is customer service.  I'm not sure what my official tital is.  What's important is making sure everyone is happy and getting their questions answered when they call or write in.  Luckily, everyone is extremely kind and patient.  I've been to a few shows and helped with a few classes here and there (shout out to Scrapbook Nook! You guys were incredible hosts!)  Hopefully, I'll get invited to help on more trips.  Who doesn't LOVE playing dress up and traveling?!

You have a history with Diane Schultz, Charee, and Aimee Filimoehala. We've also heard you are a good friend of Henry, the Graphic 45's brilliant Wire Fox Terrier mascot. How long have you known them?

The Filimoehala sisters are two of my favorite people!  Charee and I have been friends for 10 years now.  I wouldn't have survived my 20's without her support and love.  They're truly two of the most talented and intelligent women I know, and it's very clear they've inherited it from Dianne.  What a family!  Henry is everything you'd expect and more,  a proper gentleman.  And let's not forget, I've know Joanna for ages as well.  If you don't know how to do the Harlem shake, she's an expert.

Here is a great photo from last year's Scrapfest! There's Joanna, Aimee, Charee and Meggan!



You have a very unique birthday - on Feb 29! What's it like to be a Leap Year baby? How old are you in Leap Years this year? (Or should a lady never tell...?)

Being a Leap Year baby is awesome.  Most people have a general reaction of astonishment when i tell them.  It's like having a magic trick for a birthday.  I'm proud to say this year I will be turning 7 and 1/4.  Hopefully, I don't look a day over 6.

How are you celebrating your birthday this year?

I'm keeping it nice and simple this year.  Dinner and drinks with my favorite people.  Followed by a long weekend of drinking red wine and quilting.  It's my dream come true.

You're quite creative yourself! What are your favorite creative endeavors?

I have too many creative endeavors!  I was blessed with the most talented and creative grandmother growing up.  Everything I know how to do, I've learned from her.  Right now, I'm super passionate about embroidery, quilting, making jewelry, and leather working. If I can squeeze in a little knitting or sketching, I'm a happy lady.

Here are some of Meggan's glorious embroidery and jewelry creations!


And now for fun - If you were an animal, what animal would you be?

Hands down, HORSES!!!  I grew up with horses.  They're the most incredible animals.  I have a very strong emotional reaction to them. Anytime I see a commercial or movie with horses in them, I start crying.  Seriously.  Tears running down my cheeks.

We are so happy to have Meggan on our Graphic 45 team! Happy Birthday, Meggan! You are so super!

That's all for today, G45ers! Thank you all so much for joining us for today's huge announcement! We are so excited to see all of your 2013 Design Team auditions! We can't wait to see what a new year of inspiration will bring! It's going to be incredible! We wish you all a very happy day!

With Love and Pretty Paper,

Team Graphic 45

Beautiful projects! Love them all!!! Such talented artists.


Wow I'm guessing there is going to be ALOT of talented ladies trying out to be part of your DT. Good luck to EVERYONE. Happy Birthday to Meggan!

I truly hope that you guys take on Anne from Anne's Paper Creations to your DT.

While, she and I don't know one another, she's one of the main reasons my addiction to G45 exists and continues to exist.

Her work is spectacular and she has talent from here to the moon and back.

Just thought I'd put a lil plug for her here since I just saw her blog post go up for the DT entry, and I even saw projects I hadn't seen before and I just had to let you guys know about her!!
