April Featured Designer Part 1 – CathyK Designs

Welcome to April! This month we are featuring CathyK Designs and Dear Friends Designs. So much good fun from these girls, I’m going to split this into at least two posts. Let’s see what Cathy had to say to my questions.

How did you get started in digital scrapbooking?

I was introduced to digital scrapbooking when my oldest son was in grade school and I was helping another mom work on a class scrapbook. I had tried paper scrapping when my son was born, but it just didn’t stick with me.

What made you decide to design?

I started making some freebies just for fun, then got hooked!

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

Photoshop CS4 and Inkscape

Describe your design workplace.

I have a computer desk with a large display in our family room. I’ve tried working on a laptop, but the tiny screen size just doesn’t work for me.

What is your favorite thing about designing?

I like seeing an idea come to fruition and then seeing how scrappers use that kit to scrap their precious memories.

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

Noooo, don’t make me choose between my babies, LOL! They’re all special in some way. I guess I’ve been thinking a lot about camping lately wishing for summer, so my Go Camping and Go Hiking Collections have been on my mind lately.

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

Disney World with my family.

Which is your most cherished childhood memory?

Christmases at mygrandparents’ house.

Do you believe in ghosts?

Sure.

Who is your celebrity crush?

Mark Harmon

What do you order when you go to Starbucks?

Decaf Skinny Hazelnut Latte

What is your favorite kind of cookie?

Pecan Pie Bars

Are you an optimist or a pessimist?

Optimist

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

Nope, I’m fine with my name.

What is your favorite pizza topping?

Black olives and banana peppers.

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

Don’t be so quick to judge people. Your first impression of them may not really be who they are at all.

What do you do to wake up in the morning?

Drink coffee.

What is a small luxury that you treat yourself to?

Starbucks Latte or Frappucino

What did you want to be when you were small?

An architect, I used to design dream bedrooms when I was younger.

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

None of them, LOL! But if I had to pick one, I guess it would be to wash dishes.

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

Cleaning, for sure.

What would you do if you won the lottery?

Pay off the house, buy a new car, pay for 2 college educations, share with family, and maybe splurge on a vacation of some kind, and save most of it for retirement.

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

Right now, it’s several inches of snow, in April!

Share your favorite recipe with us.

This one is so easy, and my teenage sons absolutely love it!

Chocolate Caramel Cake

Bake a 9×13 chocolate cake. Poke holes in it with the end of a wooden spoon. Pour over a can of sweetened condensed milk. After that has soaked in, pour over a jar of caramel sauce. Once that has soaked in,top with a small container of Cool Whip, then sprinkle with Heath Bar pieces. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Thanks Cathy! Make sure to check out her GS Store, Facebook Page, and Blog.

Also make sure you are grabbing the daily download from the blog everyday. Our featured designers have put together a cool kit for you.

Check back soon for the next part of our Featured Designer post featuring the girls from Dear Friends Designs.

 

GingerBread Girl Inspiration | DigitalMcScrapper

Today we are going to get some inspiration from one of the talented GingerBread Girls. Today we are going to check out DigitalMcScrapper (aka Stephanie)’s gallery. She has the cutest kids and I enjoy seeing her layouts. I think you guys will too. Here are some of my favorite from her gallery:

 

 

 

 


 

WOW! Right?! All those lovely layouts are linked to her gallery. Make sure you run over and give her some love. While you are there, you can look around to see what grabs your attention. I know you will find some inspiration. One of my favorite things about Stephanie’s layouts (besides those darling little ones) is that she really knows how to fill a page. I am such a one to two photo scrappers. I really enjoy and get inspiration from seeing someone scrap lots of photos and fills a page.

Stephanie not only knows how to take advantage of space on her layout, she has wonderful clusters. She does not shy away from the fun and patterned papers; and has great title work.

I hope you find some great inspiration for your next layout. I really have no doubt that you will. Take a look at Stephanie’s gallery. Bookmark it! You will always find inspiration from it and the other GingerBread girls.

Fresh Baked: April 08, 2016

Good morning! Welcome to Friday! In April! The time is flying by, and, hopefully, it’s bringing some nice weather and pretty flowers! The designers are having a blast, I think, gearing up for full-on spring and the coming of summer, as well! They have some gorgeous kits and perfect templates! It’s a great week, that’s for sure!

And starting now, we’re moving the gallery show-offs from the top of the newsletter to the bottom, so that the new amazing products are front and center!

Remember when you spend $10 in the store, you get a great collab!

Created by scrappingirl. I love the photo strips! The clusters are beautiful as well.
