A Tribute to Ginger Ropp, an ever-talented artist


Yesterday the crafting community lost a brilliant artist, Ginger Ropp.  Ginger lost her battle with Covid surrounded by loved ones.


We had the opportunity to first meet Ginger Ropp – My Sisters Scrapper in 2013 when she joined our design team.  Like most people who had the opportunity to meet her, we immediately fell in love with her energetic personality, continuous generosity, and her endless creativity.  For the last two years we’ve been honored to work closely with Ginger, as a Special Project Designer heading up the designs for our monthly card club.  Her creativity truly knew no bounds, it was amazing to see what projects she would come up with monthly.


We will miss Ginger’s bright light, and think of her foundly while at our crafting tables.  Our hearts go out to Ginger’s family, friends, and the crafting community.


With Love, Charee, Aimee, Diane, and the whole G45 Family

To honor Ginger’s memory we wanted to share a handful of our favorite photos from trade shows, classes and travels.  Followed by the last Graphic 45 project Ginger created for us, a few classic videos by Ginger, and the 2021 G45 Card Club cards she created.
