"I'm a guy from Spain, I'm 24 years old and I have been doing scrapbooking for over two years. I discovered scrapbooking by chance. I wanted to make a special gift, a diary for a trip (I love travel) and that's how I discovered the wonderful world of scrapbooking. My style is vintage, totally a classic vintage Victorian European style. I also enjoy working with bright colors, as in the vintage bright colors are perfect. There is no other brand like Graphic 45 that offers all of that." -L. Alberto Juarez Diaz

Here is the amazing stop-motion animation video that Alberto sent to us as part of his design team audition. The work is simply stunning and the video is beyond adorable. This must have taken him forever to create! We were definitely impressed!
