We are happy to bring you this week’s Featured Company: Graphic 45. We are so excited to be featuring them regularly on Paper Crafter’s Library! For those of you unfamiliar with Graphic 45 , we’d like to take a minute to re-introduce them to you.
Graphic 45 is an award-winning scrapbook and paper crafting company— owned and operated by a mother and her two daughters.
Diane Schultz—Designer and CEO (aka mother)
“I’m passionate about being creative and eager to make it possible for others to find their creative voice. My background includes stints as a designer for, McCalls, Simplicity, Vogue/ Butterick, Mattel Toy Company and a host of other jobs that each, in some way, led me to what I do now. At 45 I went back to school and got my degree in graphic design— I named the company to celebrate that achievement.”
Aimee Filimoehala —Director of Operations
“I wear a lot of hats and love it that way. Business, marketing, operations, etc. have made me a pro at multitasking (aka juggling‑figuratively and literally). When we launched Graphic 45 just three years ago we had no idea what was in store, working together as a family has been an amazing journey that we all feel so grateful to be apart of.”
Charee Filimoehala —Director of Customer Service and Design Team Coordinator
“I joined the team a little over three years ago and haven’t looked back…what a life-changing experience this has been. I love working with and around creative people and products (not to mention I like my co-workers quite a bit). I spend my days working with our friendly stores and talented design team…the occasional trip to a workshop or tradeshow pretty nice too.”
Together we create vintage inspired crafting products that capture the flamboyant style of the 1920’s and 30’s – with vibrant color, irresistible texture and imaginative design to create products with decades-old appeal that’s both fresh and familiar. Let our products inspire your next scrapbook layout, card, album or home decor project.
Graphic 45 Designer Alberto Juarez
Our Graphic 45 Guest Designer for this week is Alberto Juarez who is part of the 2013 Graphic 45 Design Team. You can see Alberto’s fabulous project below, but first, here is a little more about Alberto:
I’m a 26 year old guy from Spain. I have been scrapbooking for over four years. I discovered the scrapbook 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 and of course there is no brand as Graphic 45 that offers all that. I’ve been on the Graphic 45 design team for 2 years and I’m also a Prima Marketing Educator – you can enjoy my workshops in Europe!
Graphic 45 Designer Project
For this project I wanted to make a box for storing memories of trips to the great fashion cities in the world; Paris, Milan, New York, Rome… I think it’s a perfect project for the collection “Couture” and a great way to save some precious memories!
We hope you have enjoyed this fun creation from Alberto. I would also like to extend a warm thank you to Alberto for sharing his fabulous project with us! Please take a minute to stop by Alberto’s blog and of course the Graphic 45 blog to check out all their amazing creations!
