Happy July everyone! It’s been said before, but I truly cannot believe how time just whizzes by. I’m excited to bring to you a new feature we have at GingerScraps starting this month: The Designer Spotlight!
Each month we’ll be spotlighting a GingerScraps Designer and to kick things off for July, say hello to Rachel, known as Pretty in Green!
Rachel has been a designer at GingerScraps since 2009. In a perfect world, I would have been able to sit down over a cup of tea and chatter away with Rachel about what inspires her as a designer, her family and her hobbies outside of digital scrapping. Instead the Internet brings us together, gotta’ love technology!
Today it’s all about designing, Rachel as Pretty in Green.
What is your design process?
Once I am inspired I look for just the right colors, or if the colors have inspired me I look at my digi stash and see where I can start, and then I pick out a cardstock overlay and start with solid colors and then patterned papers then the elements, and then sometimes I add just a few more patterned papers.
What software do you use as a designer?
I’m a Photoshop girl.
What motivates and inspires you as a designer?
My kids, my husband, family day to day. I usually create kits that I need to scrap my life, but sometimes colors really speak to me and I go from there, that usually ends up being the really fancy kits. I have found through designing that I’m a girly girl who really likes damask prints, LOL!
Describe your design workplace
My dinning room table, or my living room. During the summer months I sit in the dinning room which is more comfortable. During the winter I move to the living room coffee table because it’s warmer in there, but I sit on the floor and that is not so comfortable.
What is your favorite kit you’ve designed?
Oh man, this is always a hard one, there is something I love about each one of my kits, but if I have to choose, then I’d have to say Courageous because it’s a kit inspired by the Pixar’s Brave. It’s a kit with forest greens and cool blues and touches of warm red, I love the way that kit scraps, it has a lot of ME in it.
Courageous is available in Rachel’s GingerScraps store:
It’s also currently 30% OFF, BONUS!
