Merry Christmas!! Only a few days left. Are you ready? I finally started shopping on Saturday. Good news is, I also finished on Saturday. Nothing like a list and a plan.
This month we have two fabulous featured designers at GingerScraps and I have SO much to share that I’m going to have to split this into TWO posts. Isn’t that exciting. Thanks to Cornelia Designs and Ponytails Designs for being so sweet and answering my questions. Today’s post is with Cornelia Designs. We’ll follow up with Ponytails Designs in a couple of days.
Let’s see what Cornelia has to share.
What is your design process?
I totally love to make big collections. First I start with a theme or the colors, depends. Then always my papers are finished first and then I start with all the other parts. I finish them over time and dont work just on one till it’s finished. The last are always my elements that get done.
What do you use to create your designs (program, addition tools, etc.)?
Adobe Photoshop CC 2014, Bamboo Tablet, Computer
Describe your design workplace.
completely messy, with a ton of lists laying around, about designing and other stuff
What is your favorite thing about designing?
it totally calms me to sit in front of photoshop and see my designs pictured inside my head come to life.
What is your favorite or “go-to” color palette?
bright and cheerful colors
What is your favorite treat to have close while designing?
I think I have no favorite treat, there is just me and my glass of water, sometimes a chai tea, but not occasionally
Do you have job outside of designing? If so, what do you do (if you don’t mind sharing)?
Im a stay at home mom right now, coz my little one turned just 1 years old. So for the next 1.5 years Im home with her till she can go to kindergarten.
Please share a photo of yourself, can be silly or serious but a photo that shows us who YOU are.
What is your *favorite* kit you’ve designed (that is currently in store) and why is it your favorite?
Me, My Selfie & I – I love taking pictures the whole time, okay its not so that I do a lot of selfies, but it doesnt matter for this kit. The colors itself just make happy, bright and cheerful.
What is your favorite thing about GingerScraps.net?
I completely love it there. My first thought we will see how it goes there, but everyone is so friendly, and helpful. And damn all is so well organized at Gingerscraps, that helps a lot with designing my stuff.
What is the current ringtone on your phone?
Over the Horizon – and I have no idea, it was a standard in my phone so I used it, coz it sounded best from all the others
If you were deserted on an island (with all water/food provided), what three things would you want to have with you?
a book (or 3 haha), writing stuff, and my computer
If you could spend the day with anyone (living or dead) who would it be and why?
Thats a hard question, gladly I havent lost anyone yet. But my dad went away when I was age 7 and I havent seen him since this, no contact either. So a day with him would be cool maybe. Not sure, I mean it could end horrible too.
What songs are included on the soundtrack to your life?
loud and cheerful songs, nothing slow
What would you sing at Karaoke night?
I would never sing at Karaoke night. Its horrible when I sing, everyone would run away *g*
Any special message to our members?
Yes of course. I want to thank you all for enjoying my stuff so much. Coz without you all I wouldnt be here. Also I love the friendships I found coz of this community.
I asked in the GS Facebook group for you to share your favorite kit and a layout using that kit and lorigaud posted that her favorite kit is Mustache You.
She shared this fabulous layout. Make sure to stop by and leave her some comments.
Make sure to look for Part 2 coming soon.
