~~February Feature Designer – Day Dreams ‘n Designs~~

Happy February. Today we’re talking with Shelley of Day Dreams ‘n Designs. She was kind enough to answer my scrapping and somewhat off-the-wall questions.

How long have you been designing?

I started out designing blog train freebies in 2014 and then opened my first store in April 2015. I started with a guest spot at GingerScraps in November 2017 and love being a GS designer.

What made you decide to design?

I had started digital scrapbooking a fews years before but then found some tutorials on how to design my own stuff. After participating in blog trains I found out how much I really enjoyed it.

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

Photoshop CC

Describe your design workplace.

I have my own office with a large u-shaped desk that holds my PC and two monitors and my Mac Computer. And yes I use it all!

What motivates and inspires you as a designer?

My kids and what I need to scrap for them along with colors and themes.

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

A Snowy Adventure has always been one of my favorites. I love doing snow kits because I love snow but I also love the color palette.

What was your first job?

My first job was at a place call Sears Teleservice. We answered calls from people wanting to schedule repair service for Sears appliances.

Have you ever met anyone famous?

Nope.

What are you reading right now?

The Unblemished series

What is your favorite quote?

Life is to be enjoyed, not endured.

What is something you want to do in the next year that you’ve never done before?

Take my family on a cruise.

You have your own latenight talk show, who do you invite as your first guest?

Hmm, I don’t really watch talk shows but recently some of my favorite songs have been from Imagine Dragons so let’s go with them!

If you had to delete all but 3 apps from your smartphone, which ones would you keep?

Find iphone, Messages, and overdrive – gotta have my ebooks and audiobooks!

If you could have someone follow you around all the time, like a personal assistant, what would you have them do?

Hands down cooking and then cleaning. But I hate cooking more.

Would you rather travel back in time to meet your ancestors or to the future to meet your descendants?

Hmm that’s a tough one but probably to the future to meet my descendants and see what it’s like.

What commercial jingle gets stuck in your head all the time.

We only stream so we don’t watch commercials but my kids like that shark song and that gets stuck in my head a lot unfortunately!

If you could turn the ocean into a liquid other than water, which one would you pick?

But water is my favorite thing to drink! I don’t drink soda any more but my favorite was cream soda so I’ll go with that.

Thank you to Shelley for playing along. Make sure to check out her GS Store, her FB Fan page, and her blog. Also, make sure you are grabbing each piece of the daily download from the GS blog.

 

~~January Featured Designer – ADB Designs~~

Happy 2019!! I’m so excited to bring you this month’s featured designer profile. ADB Designs is one of our newer store designers. Let’s just jump right in and get to know her.

How long have you been designing?

As scrapbook designer since 2012; as designer (marketing and end user products) in a photography studio since 2002.

What made you decide to design?

I retired from a high stress job in IT and found designing to be a powerful creative outlet for my time and energy – AND – it allowed me to create designs that supported my genealogy passion.

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

Photoshop CC & AI; scanner, husband who is professional photographer, LOL!

Describe your design workplace.

I have an office in my home, with windows that overlook a wooded hill on our 5 acre property. It is peaceful and quiet, unless the office cat is demanding attention.

What motivates and inspires you as a designer?

I love history and romantic “things” – I research for my genealogy passion and all of that feeds my designer imagination. I create a lot of Heritage collections designed to assist with telling a family history.

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

Patriots & Loyalists Heritage Collection is my current favorite. I loved the challenge of creating a collection to support research in the American Revolutionary War period. I loved the challenge of creating a product that celebrated both patriots and loyalist…all were newly minted Americans at the end of the war.

What was your first job?

WOW that really takes me back. I would have to say babysitter at age 12 for the 3 children who lived next door.

Have you ever met anyone famous?

No, I lead a boring life. LOL

What are you reading right now?

Oh goodness, I read 6-7 books at a time. (I read a lot of non-fiction) I am finishing these:

  • His Brother’s Keeper – A Story From the Edge of Medicine

What is your favorite quote?

“The opposite of hate is not love, it is indifference.” David Wilkerson

Go to Australia and visit my brother Alan and his family.

You have your own late night talk show, who do you invite as your first guest?

Oprah Winfrey

If you had to delete all but 3 apps from your smartphone, which ones would you keep?

Google Drive, Adobe Capture, Google News

If you could have someone follow you around all the time, like a personal assistant, what would you have them do?

Clean & cook — oh wait, my husband does that….I guess help me stay organized.

Would you rather travel back in time to meet your ancestors or to the future to meet your descendants?

Back in time.

What commercial jingle gets stuck in your head all the time.

“Nationwide is on your side” Peyton Manning singing.

If you could turn the ocean into a liquid other than water, which one would you pick?

Would not want to do that…but if you are asking about other favorite liquids….well a good single malt Scotch makes me happy. 🙂
