As always your vote counts so head over the the forum to vote for the next LOTW winner. You can be a LOTW winner too, all you have to do is scrap! Happy Scrapping.
It’s Saturday, YAY! My name is April, and I’m quite new to the GingerScraps community but I am so excited to be here! Today we’re going to take a moment to chat up Jennifer, owner of Luv Ewe designs!
She is currently hosting the grab bag this month (FREE when you spend $10 in the store), so get it while you still can!
I asked Jennifer a little bit about herself, about her family and some of her other interests:
I am married and had a wonderful wedding on a beach in Jamaica. I have three boys and four step kids. We also have six indoor kitties! Hmmm we have a boring family life. LOL I toy around with photography so my kids are getting bored with me taking pictures of them. But you have to capture these moments because they grow up too fast! My boys are teenagers now and that is just hard to believe! They were little just yesterday! Besides designing, I enjoy scrapping too. I spend too many hours on Pinterest and playing with my camera.
How did you come to be a designer?
I started designing before I ever scrapped! I started making siggies in a forum and created some elements that I wanted to use or these, and there started my Photoshop addiction!
What inspires your designing?
What inspires me when designing…I do ask my CT for theme ideas. That helps me get started so that I can come up with some kits that they are looking for. Pinterest has a lot of inspiration too! I am addicted to that site! I found lots of color palettes on there. I grab one that I like and it leads from there. I jot down some ideas of what would be some great elements and such for the theme. Sometimes I look at kits from my fave designers to get my mind rolling.
I then asked her about her kits, her very first, best selling and her most favorite.
Well I don’t have my first kit that I ever made. It is long gone! LOL It was horrendous! I do remember it was named Blueberry and Bubblegum. It was pink and blue. My fave kit right now is Friends For Life and my best selling is Now Showing.
Both of which are available in the shop (and totally now on my wishlist- look at how awesome they are!)!
In one word how would you describe your design style?
Versatile. I love seeing my themed kits being used for non-themed layouts. My kits can be used in so many ways!
I’d love to know what is the one thing you can’t do without when designing?
I design with PS CS4 (Photoshop Creative Suite V.4). I do all my designing while sitting on my couch. I hate sitting at the table! One thing I usually have to have while designing is my Dr. Pepper. I am addicted to that stuff!
Finally, do you have any advice for aspiring designers?
Just keep learning! There is always something new to learn with your program, networking, marketing, etc. This will help you grow as a designer! I am learning new things all the time and still have a lot of room to grow!
I want to thank Jennifer (super much!) for taking the time to talk with me, and having the patience to deal with my many emails the past few days! All while feeling a bit under the weather, sure hope you feel better soon! We can’t wait to see what you create for us next!
I hope everyone has a spectacular weekend and I can’t wait to for next Saturday when we talk with March’s Grab Bag designer… and no, I can’t tell you who yet!
ACHOO! Excuse me. I didn’t mean to sneeze. I promise I sneezed into my elbow. I can’t tell if I have a head cold or just awful allergies. Ugh, I hate feeling this way. Hopefully none of you are sick. If you are I hope you feel better soon.
I do know what will everyone feel that much better….New Releases!! Before I tell you about them I do have very exciting news about today. Today is someone’s birthday. Care to guess? Nope…guess again. Nope, not her either. It’s our very own GINGER! Help me wish Ginger a very happy birthday. Happy Birthday Ginger!! We love you!
To help you get more bang for you buck…ACHOO! Sorry about that. Where was I? Oh right! Bang for you buck! We have some great sales going on!
Here are our new releases….ACHOO! Sorry again! Make sure you check out the store because we don’t want you to miss anything!!
While you are still here – don’t forget to check the Welcome Wagon! Keep In Touch Designs has added her new kit! Just register in our forum (the store and forum have 2 different log in screens, so just because you are registered in the store, you may not be registered in the forum).
