September Spotlight Designer

feature-designer-500x107

Happy Fall everyone. It’s been a busy month here at GingerScraps with our 6th Birthday Celebration. Hopefully you got all the goodies from the Facebook Hop and took advantage of the great sales. The weather is finally cooling off in my corner of the states (North Carolina) and I’m looking forward to some gorgeous leaf colors soon.

This month, our feature designers are Clever Monkey Graphics and Wimpychompers. I got a chance to ask Tracey of Clever Monkey Graphics some of our get-to-know-you questions.

What is your design process?

Choose theme, choose colors which often involves lots of play, looks for inspiration, start designing.

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

Most of my work is done in Photoshop 4.0. Occasionally I open my Illustrator. I also have a Wacom Cintiq monitor that I can play on for direct to monitor doodling.

Describe your design workplace.

Usually it’s my big comfy brown leather chair with my feet up and a laptop where it belongs – on my lap. TV is often on with a cheesey movie playing that doesn’t matter if I look at it or not.

What motivates and inspires you as a designer?

Color, pattern

What is the last book you read?

Dinosaur Lake Book 2

Tea or coffee?

Both but I switched to decaf a year ago.

Do you craft outside of the digital world?

I’ve pretty much given that all up as I hate making the messes and my tastes have changed about what I want decorating my wall or house. Also having my daughter a little older now we’re not doing kid krafts.

How do you feed your sweet tooth (photo if you got it)?

I really shouldn’t feed it! But I do love Canadian chocolate and also crystallized ginger. Dark chocolate covered almonds give me a great sneaky caffeine boost since I stopped drinking caffeine.

What is your *favorite* kit you’ve designed (that is currently in store) and why is it your favorite?

I really don’t know – I always go back to thinking I love the Under the Boardwalk pair of kits. I really enjoyed using my Tropical Aloha and At the Zoo kits recently too. Can’t really say why I love some more than others. I just click with some more than others.

What is your favorite thing about GingerScraps.net?

I find it to be a great and friendly community of people.

What is the most used App on your phone?

I’m old school – I still don’t have a smart phone.

Do you have a guilty pleasure?

Bad sci fi!

How long have you been designing?

Eight years.

Salty or sweet?

One followed by the other!

If you could travel to any TIME in the past, present or future where would you go and why?

I’d like to go back a few years to have some great sit down conversations with my Nana who has since passed on.

Thanks Tracey!! Make sure you check out her Facebook page, her Blog, and her store at GingerScraps.

Keep an eye out for some new questions and check the Gingerscraps Facebook page for ways that you can be involved.

But for now, tell us in the comments, what is your favorite Clever Monkey Graphics or Wimpychomper kit?

March Feature Designers: CathyK Designs and Created by Jill Scraps

It’s the end of the month, literally, only a few hours left, maybe even less depending on your time zone! Stephanie has put together these two interviews of our March Feature Designers. It’s been a fantastic month and double the fun with TWO designers! 

Hi everyone,  dropping in to showcase our TWO (yes, two) featured designers for March. CathyK Designs and Created by Jill Scraps have teamed up this month to the designers in the GingerScraps spotlight. These ladies have designed a couple of my favorite (and most used) kits.

Let’s talk to Cathy first:

What is your design process?

My design process varies a little, depending on how I get started. Sometimes, the color palette comes first, then I pick a theme that goes with it. Sometimes, I have a theme in mind, then work up a color palette to go with the theme. Once I have a color and theme, I always do papers first, then elements, then alphas and any other addons.

What do you use to create your designs?

I use Photoshop CS4 for the majority of my design work and Inkscape for any illustrations I need to do.

Describe your design workplace.

My workspace is a big computer hutch in our Family Room. I have an aging desktop computer (hope to replace it soon) and a brand new 22″ flat screen monitor. My sons are often in there watching TV, playing video games, or just hanging out. Right now, my son is watching a crazy movie about a homicidal car tire that blows up people with its mind. Obviously, I get my best work done while they are at school or after they go to bed!

What motivates and inspires you as a designer?

Let’s see, color, everyday life, my sons’ activities and interests, magazines, Pinterest, textures, a song, a good quote. Really, anything can be the inspiration for a product!

Tea or coffee?

Coffee with flavored creamer or lattes, please. I’m trying to drink more tea, but I just don’t like it much. I have found a vanilla Rooibos tea that I like, that has the benefits of green tea without the green tea flavor.

I love flavored creamers too. Plain creamer is just boring.

Do you craft outside of the digital world?

I used to craft all the time, until I found digital scrapbooking. Now, most of my crafting is digital.

Hobbies in addition to crafting?

I like hiking and camping, bike riding, reading, and just hanging out with my family.

How do you feed your sweet tooth?

My favorite dessert of all time is pecan pie, which I only have around the holidays. I also love coconut cream pie ice cream from a local ice cream shop here.

I *need* to find some of this coconut cream pie ice cream.

What is your *favorite* kit you’ve designed and why is it your favorite?

Oh, WHY do you want me to choose between my babies? I guess I would have to choose my Inspired Collection. I designed this for the December Buffet, and I LOVE the bright, happy colors and all the fun elements.

 

What is your favorite thing about GingerScraps.net?

My favorite thing about GingerScraps is the friendly, helpful people that make up this wonderful community!

What is the most used App on your phone?

I think Google Chrome is my most-used app. I don’t like the Facebook app, so I use Chrome to access Facebook and one of my webmail accounts.

Do you have a guilty pleasure?

Starbucks decaf skinny hazelnut latte.

How long have you been designing?

I’ve been designing over 7 years now.

Keep up with Cathy on Facebook and her blog. You can also check out all of her fabulous kits in her store.

And now, a little insight from Jill:

What is your design process?

That’s a good one! I mainly go with the flow…sometimes I’ll start with papers…then have an idea for an element…switch to that…then maybe a journal card saying comes to mind…I’m all over the place!

What do you use to create your designs?

I use PS CS5 with an occasional splash of Snap Art or Art Rage!

Describe your design workplace.

Total chaos!

What motivates and inspires you as a designer?

It could be a palette, a mood, something one of my teenagers say….it could be anything!

What is the last book you read?

Has to be one of the Argeneau Series books by Lynsay Sands….addicted to her stuff…modern day vampires (immortals as they refer to themselves) with a neat twist.

Tea or coffee?

Coffee!!

Do you craft outside of the digital world?

Hobbies in addition to crafting? I wish…I’m not crafty at all!

Please share a photo of yourself, one that shows us YOU.

One of my “happy places” is when I’m teaching Zumba. In this picture I had just arrived at my very first Zumba Convention in Orlando in 2012 (still on the bus from the airport). Via Facebook I had gathered together 400 “newbies” and a bunch of us were going to meet poolside at the Hilton. They called me the Pack Leader so I had to get the hat made! Can you tell I was excited??

 How do you feed your sweet tooth?

I am a Lifesaver Pep-o-mint addict! (I’d show you a picture but they’re all gone)

What is your *favorite* kit you’ve designed and why is it your favorite?

Oooooh…that’s a hard one….I think my current favorite is from the March Buffet…Hello There! Love the colors….it’s so spring-y!

 What is your favorite thing about GingerScraps.net?

It’s a warm and welcoming pace to be! Everyone is just fantastic!

What is the most used App on your phone?

It’s a tie between Facebook and Candy Mania.

I think Facebook is mine too. Makes it so easy to stay connected everywhere.

Do you have a guilty pleasure?

These amazing Italian caramels you can only get via mail (unless you live in the eastern shore in Maryland) I can go through a box in days (and that’s with some control!) I grew up with them and still order a pound every now and then. Matter of fact my father sent me a pound for my birthday!

These sound heavenly.

How long have you been designing?

I’d say about 5-6 years….but I really have no clue…it’s something I stumbled into…when? I can’t really say….I feel like I’ve always been doing this!

Salty or sweet?

Sweet….THEN salty! Must have the 2!

If you could travel to any TIME in the past, present or future where would you go and why?

Let me get back to you on that……*grin*

Make sure to follow Jill on Facebook, her blog, and see all her designs in her store.

I have to agree with both of these lovely ladies that GingerScraps.net is warm, welcoming, and a helpful place to hang out. I’ve gotten some great help, guidance and inspiration since I joined.

November Feature Designer: Blue Heart Scraps!

feature designer

Happy Saturday everyone! It’s been a while since we met and I’m happy to bring to you November’s Feature Designer, JoyLynn of Blue Heart Scraps.

I may be a bit bias because I’ve been a part of JoyLynn’s team in the past, but she is totally rad. One thing I love about Blue Heart Scraps is the ‘paper’ style to her designing. It one of my favorite ways to scrap, but enough about me and what I like, let’s talk about JoyLynn!

What is your design process?

It varies from kit to kit. Most times, I start with a general idea of what theme I want to go with and then try to find colors and create elements that fit my idea of that theme. Other times, I run across colors or pictures (either online or in real life) that I just can’t stop loving on, and try to build something from them.

What do you use to create your designs?

Photoshop CS 5, Adobe Illustrator (though no where near as much as I wish I could!), my Wacom Tablet, and every once in a while, I’ll remember that I have a copy of ArtRage I can open up. ;)

Describe your work space

Messy, it’s horribly disorganized!  So, lately I’ve been taking over the living room recliner and side table (to hold my mouse and tablet), until my husband gets his portion of the computer desk figured out.

What motivates you as a designer?

Seeing the beautiful pages created with my products and knowing that I had a hand in helping someone create a lasting memory.

While it’s always fun to hear about designers designing, it’s more fun to hear about the fun tidbits totally unrelated to designing! With that said,

What is the last book you read?

Last book completed was Emma’s Secret by Steena Holmes. Currently reading Fallen by Lauren Kate.

Tea or Coffee?

Tea, please…especially if you’re making a Starbucks run. Then I’ll have a venti, soy, no water chai with an extra pump of chai, please. Yum!

Can’t say I agree with JL on the chai bit (though I know MANY who LOVE chai!) but I totally love tea, just give me a strong black with a splash of milk and I am one happy scrapper.

Do you craft outside of the digital world?

I can cut and paste some crafts with my kids…does that count? ;)

Totally counts.

Any hobbies in addition to designing?

Reading, catching up on older seasons of TV shows (I’m currently flying through Glee. It’s really not that bad if you fast forward through most of the singing, LOL) and video games…because sometimes, I just need to lose myself in something mind-numbing.

I definitely know reading is a hobby, especially since you are one of the fearless leaders of the GingerScraps book club. I love to read too, but haven’t given myself the time to do so in too long, sadly.

Show us YOU in one shot!

My youngest child is a snuggler…so most nights you’ll find me just like this;

How do you feed your sweet tooth?

Lately, it’s been this yummy goodness!

(and because I was forced to take that picture, I totally had to eat one now, LOL)

Seems like as good of an excuse as any!

What is the most used app on your phone?

Besides Facebook? Probably Plants Vs. Zombies 2…but I blame it all on my boys (which is a lie, I barely let them play it on my phone, and when they do it has to be on their own name…not letting them get ahead of me on MY game, LOL)

What is your *favorite* kit that you’ve designed?

Let’s Get Reel! My family and I are HUGE movie fans. Because our boys are young, we don’t always get to the theatre as often as we like…but family movie/tv nights happen quite often around here!

What is your favorite thing about GingerScraps.net?

The atmosphere. Everyone is so sweet and friendly and supportive. It’s one of the nicest places I’ve been a part of online.

Truth! It really is a very friendly, supportive place! We’ve got a great group of people and new scrappers (AND designers) regularly join us here, growing our community.

Last but not least, with Thanksgiving coming this week everyone is focusing on what they are thankful for, so it is only right that I ask you, what are YOU most thankful for?

What am I most thankful for? The chance to be ME. I have an incredible family who love me regardless (even though I disappoint them often), two of the most precious boys the world has ever been blessed with (who have taught me more about compassion and acceptance and unconditional love than I have EVER thought possible), lifelong friends who make me laugh so hard I cry and then cry until I laugh (and have offered such a selfless dose of support and understanding this past year). Life isn’t always easy and happy and filled with sunshine and rainbows and unicorns who poop lollipops – but I am so ridiculously blessed!

I love your honesty and colourful descriptions, and I have to agree with you; life isn’t always sunshine and lollipops but the people that support and love us truly are a blessing and help us through!

Thank you JoyLynn, for letting us get to know you (as a designer AND as a wife, mother and just your regular rad chick).  Make sure you follow her on Facebook for up to date news, fun and freebies! Also, check out Blue Heart Scraps blog if you don’t have Facebook, or even if you do because you never know what kind of goodness she’ll have to share with you!

Because JoyLynn is our rockin’ Feature Designer for the month of November, she’s supplied us with some rockin’ coupons.

Check out all her awesome designers, RIGHT HERE! Coupons expire on November 30th (good through the day) so definitely take advantage! One time use per customer per coupon, use one or use them all but don’t let them waste away. :)

In the spirit of Thanksgiving, I’d like to know what YOU’RE thankful for!

So please, leave a comment below letting me know what it is that fills you with gratitude and be entered into a random drawing for YOUR CHOICE* of a Blue Heart Scraps kit  (*no bundles or collabs.) ! Comments will close on November 30th and a winner will be contacted 5PM CST November 30th(so make sure to include your email!)!

Me? I’m thankful for a community of scrappers that has given me best friends, inspirations and opened my eyes to a whole new way to get creative!

 

 

 

Feature Designer: September

Good day GingerScrappers!  I’m a day late this month, but am thankful to be able to be here anyway, after giving my laptop a bath. Don’t ask, just know it hasn’t suffered any irreparable damage which is always a good thing when water + technology collide.

Enough about me, let’s talk about Monica! Who is Monica, you ask? You know her as ViolaMoni here at GingerScraps and this lovely lady is our September Feature Designer!

September is a special month for Monica, not only is she the feature designer here at GingerScraps, but it’s also her birthday month!

She has provided a few awesome coupon codes for us to use in her GingerScraps store:

Now that we’ve been officially coupon’d let’s get to know more about Monica as Violamoni!

What is your design process?
I usually find my inspirations from “real life” and from beautiful photos around the web. I choose a theme to work with and then I choose a color palette that can fit well with that theme. Then I can start, usually I start from solid papers.
What program (or other) do you use to create your designs?
I use Adobe Photoshop CS5 extended and Art Rage.
Describe your design workplace 
I have a black PC with a RAM of 6GB  (no laptop), a bamboo tablet and an HD full of scrap stuff :)
46
32
What motivates and inspires you as a designer?
Seeing positive feedback from my customers!
What is your *favorite* kit you’ve designed and why is it your favorite?
Being Me is my favorite kit, because….that’s ME! My colors, my style, …I LOVE it!
I definitely love the colors myself!  There is more than just the kit itself, check out the whole bundle! (all of which are in our GingerScraps store!)
One of my favorite things about ViolaMoni’s designs is the Art Journaling aspect. I’ve always wanted to give it a go, as it’s a bit out of my scrappy zone but now I’ve got an excuse to try with the Designer Spotlight Challenge. Just create a layout using 90% of ViolaMoni products and, BOOM! challenge completed!
What is something that is out of your scrapper comfort zone? Is there anything you are willing to try that you have only admired from afar? 

August Feature Designer round two!

Happy afternoon fellow Gingerscrappers!

I’m back for round two of our Feature Designer spot this month with Theresa of Simple Girl Scraps. If you missed our first post, you can find it here.

We’re getting a bit more personal today, and I get to share a few of my favorite Simple Girl Scraps products with you! As always, let’s jump right in, shall we?

I asked Theresa to share a past photo of herself and pretty sure this is the best backdrop ever

DSC_0395

 

What is the most used App on your phone?

Hehe, what Apps? I have an old school LG Rumor! I had an iPhone when I lived in Tokyo, but just got my sister’s hand-me-down phone when I moved back to my hometown. I don’t use my phone much anyway, since I’m mostly attached to my laptop.

Do you craft outside of the digital world?

I don’t do as much as I used to, but I like to knit, sew and quilt! I also work on my paper scrapbooking albums when I get the chance!

And here is a page from one of her paper albums:

I WISH I could create non-digital layouts this awesome!

Hobbies in addition to crafting?

In addition to crafting, I enjoy going to the gym and recently competed in my first power-lifting competition! It was the hardest 3 months of solid training I’ve done before, but also very rewarding!

Lastly,

What is your favorite thing about GingerScraps.net?

I’ve always loved the community and the enthusiasm our members have with the challenges! It makes GingerScraps a fun place to be!

Challenges are such a big part of why I love GingerScraps too! There are so many to choose from, or if I’m feeling ambitious, complete them all! Speaking of challenges, join in one of our newest, the Designer Spotlight Challenge. It’s an easy challenge, just create a layout using 90% of product from the feature designer of the current month. So for August, you must use 90% of Simple Girl Scraps products, it’s a fabulous way to find hidden gems. Hidden gems that I of course (in a bias nature) am going to share with you!

 A few of my FAVORITE Simple Girl Scraps products (all in her GingerScraps store):

Check out all her products, I’m certain you’ll find something you love!  And don’t forget, as feature designer this month, Theresa has provided an awesome coupon to her store (one time use per customer).

Thank you Theresa for sharing a bit about yourself, both as a designer and a totally rad power-lifting, paper-scrapping gal!

 

August Feature Designer!

Happy Monday scrappy friends!

If you didn’t know already, Theresa of Simple Girl Scraps is our August Feature Designer!

 

I’m excited to share with you more about Theresa and the extra awesome coupon she has available for everyone during the month of August.

Today we’re going to talk about Theresa’s design process, inspirations, her favorite kit and more!  Let’s just jump right in, shall we?

What is your design process?

I usually start with a color palette and work a theme from that. Sometimes I know what I will create, other times it just kind of comes together as I work on it.

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

I use CS5 and my Wacom graphics tablet mostly.

What motivates and inspires you as a designer?

I always wanted to be a designer, mostly so I could have the kind of materials I wanted to create with! But I love seeing others create with my designs, and I even have a Gallery Standouts feature on my blog!

Describe your design workplace

I’ve recently just moved into a new home – a country house on a river, but my new work space is in one area of the very long kitchen. I’m not really set up yet, but I usually have an L-shaped desk with a bulletin board and printer nearby – and of course, my pink laptop! It’s a mess right now, so I won’t share a photo, but keep watch on my blog for an update post!

What is your *favorite* kit you’ve designed and why is it your favorite?

Just Be You is my new favourite kit, but I say that about most new kits I create! It’s basic in coloring – great for my Disney photos, but it’s also a little bit messy, and a little bit vintage!

This is also one of my favorite Simple Girl Scraps kits! It’s extremely versatile, plus that crossword puzzle paper? YES PLEASE! It is currently available in Simple Girl Scraps store.

While you’re checking out all that Simple Girl Scraps has to offer, here’s a special coupon Theresa has offered for us all!

*good for one time use per customer*

July Feature Designer part 3!

Hello, hello! I’m back a day late but I’ll pretend it’s fashionably so.

 

The final installment for our July Feature Designer, Rachel of Pretty in Green starts now (If you missed part 1 and 2 find them here and here)! Today we’re going to share a little bit of the present, past and satisfying Rachel’s sweet tooth. I’m also going to stick in a couple of my favorite kits created by Pretty in Green to help if you’re unsure what to use her totally rad awesome coupon on (see end of post for said totally rad awesome coupon).

With Summer in full swing, everyone is out making memories, I asked Rachel to share one of her recent favorite memories in photo form.

1057967_676304485729627_2121790685_n

Makes me think of one of my favorite Pretty in Green kits, King of the Jungle. A surprisingly versatile kit, I love the thought of using it for zoo trips, for my son’s love of a certain animated lion cub and the warm colors would be just lovely for that time of year when the leaves start to turn.

Moving from the present to the past, I was able to get my hands on a photo of Rachel from years past, High School to be exact! Seriously, her smile, it’s contagious!

995825_676303792396363_297624176_n

You’re smiling right now, you can’t help it.

Thinking back to High School is often a roller coaster of ‘it was the best of times, it was the worst of times’ for many.  For me personally it was a time when I should have believed more in myself, in my own beauty (and smarts!) and not relied so heavily on what others thought or cared for. Because of that, I’m immediately drawn to Pretty in Green’s I am Beautiful kit. It might just be in my top two as far as favorites from her collection of designs. It’s simple, subtle and the message is clear as day, [You] are beautiful. Don’t forget it.

Time for some more Q&A!

What is the last book you read?

eek! Is it bad to say I don’t read books, I wait for the movie? LOL! I do make time for my kids to read and I read to them, so to answer your question what was the last book, it was Mr. Brown Can Moo, Can You? by Dr. Seuss.

How do you feed your sweet tooth?

A better question would be, how don’t I feed my sweet tooth?  I don’t eat red meat, but I don’t eat a lot of veggies either, so I jokingly say I’m a sweet-tarian, LOL! I love chocolate but French toast is my all time favorite!

1005131_676304419062967_1443072667_n

Last and certainly the most important question, ;)

What is your favorite thing about GingerScraps.net?

Gosh what’s not to love? Really, I discovered Ginger Scraps when I discovered Digi Scrap, and I have stuck around since. It’s full of great friendly people, and I get to work with some of the most talented women ever!

Here, here! Now, for that coupon I mentioned at the beginning of the post:

Remember, one per customer and if you need help finding just the right kit I’ll share with you two more of my absolute favorites:

Thank you, Rachel, for letting us get to know you better and as an added bonus, here is a sneak peek of her NEWEST release coming THIS Friday!

Happy scrapping friends!

 

July Feature Designer part 2!

feature designer

Welcome back to our Feature Designer spotlight! In case you missed the introduction, Rachel of Pretty in Green is our Feature Designer for July. Last week we talked about Rachel as a designer, today I’ve got some tidbits on Rachel the amateur photographer!

Do you craft outside of the digital world?

Photography and Sewing, sometimes I just need a break from the computer and if its nice outside I grab my kids and my camera and head to the park, if it’s a nasty day I break out my sewing machine and fabric and usually end up sewing up some kind of dress or skirt for my girly.

Right now I’m pretty excited about photography, I recently got myself a new Nikon D5100 and I’ve been taking some super nice pics of my kids and family. I’m not yet sure if I’ll venture in to a photography business yet, but it sure is fun!

19893_676303682396374_1491095467_n

While we’re talking gadgets and cameras, what is the most used App on your phone?

I’m kind of new to the smart phone thing, I got an iPhone earlier this year. The only thing I really wanted it for was for taking pictures, that way I’d always have a good camera with me, so I mostly use Instagram and the camera, and I think I pop on to Facebook way too much, LOL!

Speaking of Facebook, check out Pretty in Green’s Facebook page!  She has fabulous fan freebie available when you Like her on Facebook,

and that’s not all, she also has a funtabulous freebie on the GingerScraps Facebook page, perfect for those Fourth of July photos you took this past weekend.

July Feature Designer!

feature designer

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!

me_zps8a652b2f

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.

PiG Workspace

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!

Next week, make sure to check back for more about Rachel as we dive into her hobbies outside of digital designing! Until then, hop into the forum and take a look at our new monthly challenge featuring our Spotlight Designer!

Rachel has also generously provided us all with a SUPER coupon during the month of July!

*One time use per customer

Happy scrapping and see you next week!
