‘Working with Graphic 45 has been a dream for many years, and I am incredibly excited to be given this opportunity. I am thrilled to work with all of Graphic 45 new releases as this journey continues. Being able to create and share new ideas and projects with all the Graphic 45 ambassadors I will be working with is truly unbelievable. I am truly grateful to be given this opportunity to show my creativeness.


Hello, I am Gina Long, and my designer name is c90designs. I live in a small town in Kansas, where I work in agriculture and care for an elderly couple. Proudly, I am a mother to 3 beautiful girls and now have a total of 4 wonderful grandchildren. 

A few interesting facts about me are that I live very close to the geographic center of the United States. I also live near the cabin where the song Home on the Range was written. Furthermore, I have won “best of show” at my local fair by entering my paper projects many times.


I found my love with paper art around 1998, beginning as a scrapbooker. Creating and working with paper has become a way to relax and is one of my happy places. My paper art has evolved into Albums, Junk Journals, upcycled projects, and mixed media.

For my G45Expression project, I chose to upcycle a Little Golden Book and use Graphic 45 Alice’s Tea Party 12 by 12 paper Collection pack, 12 by 12 paper patterns and solids, the sticker sheets, the ephemera collection, and the journaling and ephemera cards. (Alice’s Tea Party has been discontinued)



I added a Metal Ring Pull Handle to the spine and used ribbon and scraps of my wax linen thread to create a tassel. I made some charms from the sticker sheet and chipboard. I attached them to my tassel along with some other trinkets.











Some inside pages have pop-ups, mixed media tags, and ephemera cards tucked in.”
