Remembering Cal Summers: Honoring the Legacy of a Crafting Icon


As many in the crafting community are aware, we recently lost one of our cherished alumni, Cal Summers, a beloved Graphic 45 Brand Ambassador. It is with deep reverence that we reflect on Cal’s remarkable contributions through her breathtaking projects and captivating videos. Meeting Cal and her husband Mark in person at a trade show last year was a true privilege, where Cal’s radiant presence and genuine warmth left an indelible impression. Losing someone of Cal’s vibrant spirit, boundless talent, generosity, and grace is profoundly difficult. Today, we dedicate this blog in loving memory of Graphic 45 Brand Ambassador, Cal, inviting you to join us in honoring her remarkable life and legacy through her remarkable work.

  1. Having just spent several days with Cal & Mark before Creativation last year (2023) I can attest to the fact that she was a wonderful, kind, remarkably talented one of a kind person. I will miss her dearly and hope her family will receive some comfort from the fact that she was truly a blessing to so many. Thank you for your tribute.

  2. What a loss for us all! She was not only talented, she was a very funny lady. She was kind and helpful to all who had questions. I am saddened by this unexpected loss.
    Thank you for sharing this news with us.
