New Graphic 45 Papers
Graphic 45 is hot, hot, hot.  The Graphic 45 booth at CHA was just outstanding with all the cool Vintage details. How best to describe Graphic 45?  Try this...Graphic 45 scrapbooking papers features a singular focus on individualism and disdain for the commonplace, a flamboyant style was born in the 1920s and 30s, that captured the imagination of the world and became all the rage. Graphic 45 scrapbooking paper combines this eras vintage charm with vibrant color, irresistible texture and imaginative design to create scrapbooking paper collections with a decade old appeal that is both fresh and familiar. In a day and age when most people are communicating digitally, Graphic 45 scrapbooking papers celebrate the tactile pleasure of ink on paper puts us in touch with a simpler time and place perhaps reminding us that good design is unchanging with the same basic qualities yesterday, today and tomorrow.
