Designer Spotlight (February 2021)

It’s Scraps N Pieces!

How did January just fly by? 8.5% of 2021 is already in the rearview mirror. I thought retirement was supposed to slow life down. I think I want my money back!

This month’s Designer Spotlight is shining on the creative sister-duo Scraps N Pieces, Lori and Heidi. I had a chance to chat with them and get to know them a little better. Now I’m going to share what I’ve learned.

Jan: How long have you been designing?

Lori: 12 years in May

Jan: So a long time, in scrapper terms! What made you decide to design?

Heidi: Traditional scrapbooking was getting too expensive and it is something we can do as sisters even though we don’t live close to each other.

Jan: I know exactly what you mean, both about the expense and the distance. My sisters and I drink wine together in our respective living rooms. Now, what is your favorite kit currently in your GS store and why?

Heidi: Sweet Magnolia

Lori: Humble and Kind

Jan: Ooh, I can see why! I’d have trouble choosing one over the other. Please tell me about your perfect vacation.

Heidi:  I’d travel to Europe to see the old castles and sites.

Jan: That sounds like a long trip! I’ve been to Ireland and would love to see England, Scotland and France. Castles and heritage sites are so engaging. Do you have a green thumb? What do you grow?

Lori: Yes, we have a huge garden and I like to try new things each year.  This year we tried butternut squash and cantaloupe along with the regular stuff.

Jan: I never lived anywhere warm enough to grow good melons before and now that I do, I don’t have room. But I’m building a perennial pollinator garden. But speaking of food… If you could only eat one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Heidi: Burgers and fries

Lori: Mexican food

Jan: Mmm, I love a good burger! And tacos. My hubby just likes to eat. And he’s a gamer, so what is your favorite game to play?

Heidi: Codenames

Lori: Quacks of Quidlenburg – we are both game board lovers

Jan: I’ve never heard of either of them. I’ll have to check them out! Cards? What is your favorite card game to play?
Heidi: Skull King
Lori: Skull King and Bohnanza

Jan: More games I’m not familiar with. I must be really out-of-touch! What did you want to be when you were small?

Heidi:  an artist
Lori: a teacher or a nurse
Jan: Heidi followed her career path!
How are you all enjoying the new format for the Designer Spotlight? I like that the interviewees get to choose which questions they answer. It makes the chat much more fun. But there’re three more things Heidi and Lori want you to know. Urgently! From today until February 5th, they have a coupon code for you. Use SNPdonuts2 for $2 off any of their template packs. You can’t use it for their Buffet stuff though. And second, they’re hosting the Designer Spotlight Challenge this month. Maybe give it a look-see. Then last, they’re also providing the February Daily Download… a full-size free kit! The links for their Daily Download are posted here every day and are active for 5 days. whispers <There’s donuts in there, y’all!> (PS… remember that coloured text in these posts means there’s a link attached.)
Okay, gotta run! The tutorial isn’t gonna write itself. See you tomorrow!
