December Feature Designer – Keley Designs

Welcome to December. It’s time to catch up with our featured designer, Keley Designs and learn a few things about her.

How did you get started in digital scrapbooking?

I started in 2006 to work with my son’s photos. In 2008 I started to create my own kits, I was never without the scrap in my life.

What made you decide to design?

A friend encouraged me to create some freebies and soon I was already creating commercial use products and today I work only with the digital kits.

What do you use to create your designs (program, additional tools, etc.)?

I use Photoshop, Illustrator.

Describe your design workplace.

I have a desk in my room. I have lots of papers and colored pencils and pens because I like writing, drawing and painting. Besides that, there’s my desktop computer, the printer and some decorative stuff.

What is your favorite thing about designing?

I like to see the end result of each job, which starts by choosing the palette and then the theme for each kit.

What is your favorite kit currently in your GS store and why?

My favorite is Pure Happiness Collection.

What do you do when you are feeling very sad or depressed?

I create kits, today is a great therapy.

Which is the best vacation you’ve ever had in your life?

It was January of 2015 when we were able to travel the whole family. My mother, I, my son, my brother and nephews.

Which is your most cherished childhood memory?

Being able to play in the street, today unfortunately children can not due to violence.

Do you believe in ghosts?

No.

Who is your celebrity crush?

I don’t really have one.

What do you order when you go to Starbucks?

I never go to Starbucks. It’s not a very common cafe here in Brazil.

What is your favorite kind of cookie?

Chocolate with Chocolate Chips

How old were you when you had your first kiss?

18

Are you an optimist or a pessimist?

I used to be a pessimist, always worrying and complaining about things, even though I thought I was an optimist. Nowadays I think I?m very positive.

Would you change your name if you could? If so, what would you change it to?

No.

What is your favorite pizza topping?

Chicken with catupiry (soft Brazilian cheese).

If you could give the world one piece of advice, what would it be?

Don’t judge people. You don’t know what they’ve been through.

What do you do to wake up in the morning?

My mother always wakes me up. LOL

What is a small luxury that you treat yourself to?

Today is to eat sweet. I have cut because of my weight.

What did you want to be when you were small?

Teacher.

Which would you rather do: wash dishes, mow the lawn, clean the bathroom, or vacuum the house?

I do not like household chores … but among these may be washing the dishes.

If you could hire someone to help you, would it be with cleaning, cooking, or yard work?

Cooking.

What would you do if you won the lottery?

I help the family. Being able to work with what I really love designs without needing a job to pay the bills.

What’s the most interesting thing you can see out of your office or kitchen window?

The sky and some buildings, I live in an apartment on the 5th floor.

Fresh Baked: December 01, 2016

Good morning Gingerscrappers! The time for counting down until the new year is upon us! But do not despair! The designers have cooked up some gorgeous kits for the buffet, all sorts of styles! It’s going to be a great month! We’ll send 2016 off with style!

It is the First of the month, and that means the revel of our new Buffet!!

*NEW Buffet Bundles* Take a look at our all new Buffet Bundles! Each buffet for 2016 will have a sub category for our Buffet Bundles. One easy click to add bunches of Buffet goodies to your cart, and an amazing value too!

The designers all had their own take on what the colors and theme said to them! I love the variety!

The designers definitely each made the palette their own and came up with some gorgeous designs, each unique but working so well with the other designers’ creations

The CT did such a great job showing how well all of the kits blend. They all did wonderful work!

This is just a few of the layouts. Keep an eye out in future newsletters to see more. Maybe even one of yours, if you make sure you put it into the Buffet section of the gallery!

This month, we have a new guest designer!

Please welcome Rhonda, of Eyeinspire!

We asked Rhonda to give us a quick note about herself, and this is what she had to share:

I’m Rhonda Tonkinoon I live in Castle Rock Colorado with my amazing husband of 9 years and our little fur baby Pia. When I am not designing you will find me reading (mostly Jennifer L. Armentrout) experimenting in the kitchen, or watching the latest Hallmark holiday movie.

Here are just a few things she has in her store:
