What are you working on right now?
A blog train at this moment, But I usually have a couple of things going at once.
Tell us about the day you woke up and said “I want to be a digital scrapbook designer!”
Well now, this is a long story. It wasn't me that got the PUP going in Scrapping. I have been tagging for many years and playing with making my own elements as well. I was showing a friend what I was making and she was the one that sent them into a store showing what i could do and they excepted me into the store.....LOL..... I never thought I was good enough to be a designer. You may know my friend. Stina aka Staffy Scraps - Designs By Stina. Yep she got me into scrapping. And the rest you know is now history. Then Stina started Scrapping herself about 4 months after me.....LOL
Inspiration is everywhere, but what are the things that catch your eye?
Just everyday things. Things I may see or here can inspire me. the way I feel, the gentle breeze blowing through the leave in the trees, a beautiful sunny day, rain on the tin roof.
Out of all the products that you have created, which one is your favorite?
Gee that is a hard one. I have many favorites. I love to work with fantasy, Christmas, Easter, Halloween, pretty much anything. Describe your style
- Fantasy, Vintage, Steampunk, whatever......LOL
What is one thing about digital scrapbooking that you couldn’t live without?
i.e. Undo, templates, color changing, fonts The wrap brush in PSP, and just the being able to draw things out from scratch. What colors do you find yourself drawn to with designs, i.e. bright, funky, soft, earthy etc…
Soft and earthy, pastels, Tell us what your work area looks like. I work in the lounge room. My desk is a big old vintage style timber desk. I have old clocks all around me ticking away and chiming to keep me company.......LOL..... and my best friend TIKI Pup is right next to me. My Shadow.
What does your family think about you being a digital scrapbook designer?
Everyone said i spent so much time on the computer that I should make it pay for it self. So I did. They all laughed at first. But they don't laugh now.....LOL
What is one thing about yourself that others might not know?
I used to be very good at sport and a top equestrian rider in my day. Love the out doors and gardening.
