Team Spotlight: Craft-tastrophic!

Happy Saturday everyone! I hope your weekend has started off wonderful. Were you able to sleep in? Have that big cup of coffee in your fuzzy slippers?

This week’s Team Spotlight member is Ivonne from Craft-tastrophic!

She’s our March Grab Bag designer (which you can get for FREE with a $10 purchase in the store!).  Which I can say I actually have already after a teeny little shopping spree last night! It’s a very versatile pack, so I highly advise you to get shoppin’! 😉

Earlier this week I caught up with her and asked her a little bit about herself.

I live in Mexico, married to Jorge, 15 years ago and mother to Keila 6yo, I like spinning and Zumba as well as swimming in the beach… let´s say… Hawaii 😀

How did you begin designing?

I bought my PSP to edit pictures and to create images to make cards, then I discover digital scrapbooking and got involved in a designer contest where I won a spot to sell in one store.

What inspires your designing?

Everyday, everything and love.

What is the one thing you need while designing?

I like to have music while designing.

In one word, how would you describe your design style?

I´ll have to say Craftastrophic-o 🙂

I then asked Ivonne about her kits- her first, best-selling and favorite. 

My very first kit is Family Memories, still available at my store, and still selling 

The very best seller is Neutralized

and my favorite kit at store is Fall-land.

All three are available in the store. I love how deep and rich her color pallets are.  One thing I really love about Craft-tastrophic’s designs are her templates (which I have added several to my wishlist!). Here is one in particular I can’t wait to get my hands on.

Go check ’em out!

I asked Ivonne what her advice is for aspiring designers, she replied with,

I´ll say like in everything, prectice, practice, practice to achieve quality work.

What is one thing we may not know about you, Ivonne?

You may not know I´m a Pediatrician, it took me like 11 years to get there after High school. I also collect embossing templates, ribbons, and punchers.

Finally, I asked her to share the funniest little quip she recently came across, meme, joke, quote, book…

Hope you got a good giggle too, I know I did!

Thank you Ivonne for taking a few moments to tell us a little bit more about you and your designing. We hope to see many more beautiful kits from you!  And don’t forget ladies, to get your March Grab Bag!
