Brand Ambassador 2018-2019
Ginger Ropp – USA
“Hi my name is Ginger Ropp. I am beyond excited to be a member of the Graphic 45 family. I absolutely love everything Graphic 45. I started my papercrafting journey several years ago, however, when my first grandchild was born I stumbled upon mini albums. I absolutely fell in love with the idea of having a small compact project showcasing all of the “events and firsts” in my granddaughter's life. Once I created my first mini album, I was hooked.
Floral Shoppe – Gatefold Mini Album
“For my self-portrait introduction project, of course, I had to create a mini album. I used the beautiful Floral Shoppe collection. The colors and imagery are amazing. As I reflected back on the style of a mini album I wanted to create, I went back through the many projects I created in the past and decided on my gatefold mini album. Here’s a look at the updated version of my gatefold mini album that I had originally created a few years back.
Tip: When adding your pages to your hinges leave a small space between the page and the spine. This ensures the pages will turn properly and lay flat when your book is open.
Here is a video walkthrough of my Floral Shoppe Gatefold Mini Album.
