Here is the beautiful Ginger! Let's get to know this fantastic designer.


"Hi, my name is Ginger Ropp. I am so excited to be a part of the Graphic 45 Design Team for 2014. I live in Renton, Washington with my husband of 27 years. I have two beautiful grandchildren that are an absolute joy.

I started papercrafting several years ago. I enjoy creating mini albums, layouts, cards, and altered projects. I love teaching and sharing my projects with others through my blog, you tube channel, as well as in a classroom environment at a local scrapbook store or retreat.

My husband and I love to travel and enjoy just relaxing on a sunny beach."

We adore this layout. The photo is so perfect with the By the Sea collection and it is such a dynamic canvas! The details she adds perfectly accentuate this fantastic photo.
