The Amazing Art of Annette Green


The 2014 Design Team introductions continue! Isn't it fun to meet this new fabulous team? Today, we will see a familiar face: Annette Green. Annette is an incredible designer who was on our design team last year. She makes incredible art of all mediums: magnificent mini albums, layouts, altered art, tags, cards...the list goes on, there's not much Annette cannot do! She is an avid crafter, and we know she is found creating most every day of the week. On top of being a fantastic designer, she is one hilarious, kind, amazing woman. She is a true joy. We cannot wait for you all to get to know Annette better and see three projects that will leave you reeling with inspiration. It's going to be a great day, so why don't we jump in. What do you say, G45ers? Let's get to know Annette!


"Hello! I’m Annette Green and am thrilled to serve a second year on the Graphic 45 Design Team! I live in sunny Melbourne, Florida with my husband Paul of 22 years, our talented teenage daughter Jamie and our sweet, shy Sheltie named Suki.

Formerly a graphic designer by trade, I’ve spent the past dozen 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, on design teams and as an instructor.

I enjoy working out, eating right, and thinking positive thoughts daily. I especially enjoy cooking and spending time with friends. A few secrets some people don’t know about me: I went to beauty school after high school and worked as a hair stylist for a year before going to college; and about 10 years ago I sent in my audition tape to be on Survivor. I still haven’t gotten the call…" ~Annette

It keeps you organized and looking at beauty all day long. There's nothing better than gorgeous organization. Make sure to check out the video with this project.

"With a teenage daughter in the house, home decor items for her room have gotten much more sophisticated. She recently updated her bedroom from the childhood pinks and purples to warm browns and tans with accents of red and black, so French Country was the perfect fit. And since she’s getting ready to go back to school soon, I thought this frame would serve nicely as a decorative yet functional piece to hang on her wall by her desk." ~Annette

"I’ve always been a huge fan of Halloween so I was head over heels when I saw the new Steampunk Spells collection! Every since I was little, Halloween has provided me a delightful opportunity to create, dress up, act like someone or something completely different, and delve into the mysterious, creepy side of my imagination. Creating this fun interactive mini album brought back all the things I love about Halloween, especially while I played “The Nightmare Before Christmas” in the background while I designed this." ~Annette
