Happy almost end of July! Whoops, did this month just fly by. Maybe it was because the store was down for part of the month and we had to busy ourselves with other things.
I’m sliding in here right at the end to give a little information about one of our July featured designers, Connie Prince of Designs by Connie Prince. Here’s what she shared with us:
What is your design process?
I typically begin with colors and a “theme” idea and start from there.
What do you use to create your designs (program, addition tools, etc.)?
I use Photoshop & Illustrator primarily.
Describe your design workplace.
I work in my home office. I use a desktop PC with dual monitors.
What motivates and inspires you as a designer?
I get inspiration from a lot of places including my family, my creative team, Pinterest, etc.
What is the last book you read?
Tea or coffee?
Coffee until about noon and sweet tea after that!
Do you craft outside of the digital world (please share an example/photo)?
Yes, I LOVE crafting especially making wreaths and painting. (Layout with some of my projects)
Please share a photo of yourself, can be silly or serious but a photo that shows us who YOU are.
How do you feed your sweet tooth (photo if you got it)?
I love chocolate & cookies and I will indulge in those on occasion. Usually I try to feed my sweet tooth with healthy things like fruit!
What is your *favorite* kit you’ve designed (that is currently in store) and why is it your favorite?
Depending on the day that you ask me this question my answer usually varies lol. Right now, my favorite is Super Hero: http://store.gingerscraps.net/Super-Hero-Kit.html
What is your favorite thing about GingerScraps.net?
The community at Ginger Scraps is by far my favorite thing, everyone is amazing. Not to mention we have an amazing “boss” in Ginger, she is so supportive and easy to talk to!
What is the most used App on your phone?
Facebook & Fruit Bump by far!
Do you have a guilty pleasure?
Reality tv is probably my most guilty pleasure. I really like shows like Survivor and Big Brother a lot.
How long have you been designing?
I have been scrapbooking since I was a child, there were not very many options back then so I would doodle and use what I could find to decorate my books. In about 2005-2006 I found the world of digital scrapbooking and immediately knew this was the way for me. There were not that many stores and designers then so I began to dabble with making my own items. Joining my first store in 2006 and I have been working as a full-time designer since. It has been an incredible journey and I am very thankful to do what I love!
Salty or sweet?
Salty is my favorite.
If you could travel to any TIME in the past, present or future where would you go and why?
I would go back to my younger years and listen more to my mama and definitely be a better daughter. I miss her.
Any special message to our members?
Thank you GingerScraps community for making this such an amazing place to call home! I am honored and delighted to get to be here!
Thanks to Connie for taking a few minutes to “chat” with us. I’ll check back in next month with a chat with our August Designer.
