We are known for our themed kits, but we knew which CT member layouts would make us look good, so we geared our kit towards their style. We wanted something really beautiful so they could WOW your socks off with their beautifully styled layouts.
We are a designing duo. Heidi and I (Lori) are sisters. We have both been married to our spouses for 25 years this year. We both have 3 children. We both use Photoshop for designing. We have been designing together for 7 years and love working together.
Heidi is the artist and is great with extracting, picking color palettes, making previews, and drawing our unique themed elements. Lori is the business minded and quality half of the duo keeping our schedule and duties on track, quality checking each kit, and doing the business part of the relationship in addition to her part of designing.
Everything! Designs and colors of the dress of the lady sitting in front of us at church, colors in a photo, Pinterest, and what is going on in our lives and our CTs lives.
This has never really happened to us. We have more ideas than we have time in a year to design. It is fun to get color palettes and theme ideas from our CT though. We do kits inspired by them every couple years where they get to pick the theme, color palette, and kit name.
There are so many. Our CT is awesome and we have tons of gallery members that load our gallery full of beautiful layouts. We award free kits twice a month in our newsletter to a gallery spotlight layout. This is one of my favorite recent layouts by Linda Hansen.
Here is a link to our gallery if you want to browse some more.
Probably themed kits. They take more time but seem to sell best for us. We love doing sports kits, travel kits specific to countries or states, boy kits, teen kits, girl kits, religious kits. But, we also love just putting together a beautiful generic kit that can be used for anything. One fun thing we do every year is a kit for each other on our birthday. Heidi’s birthday is in February and she picks a color palette and sends to Lori and Lori does the entire kit as a birthday gift to Heidi. Then in June, Heidi does the same thing for Lori’s birthday. It is fun to kind of have them coordinated by theme too. For example, we’ve done Heidi Ho and Lori Lou, I Simply Remember and My Favorite Things, and this year we did Cool Beans and will be releasing Awesomesauce for Lori’s birthday.
Each year in October, we host a digital scrapbooking retreat. We’ve held them in Vegas and in Utah. This year, we will be hosting in Park City, Utah and are so excited! We have had people fly in from as far away as Brazil and Germany to attend our retreats. Check out the RETREAT category at our store for more information.
We both love a good Mexican restaurant and won’t say no to a good diner cheeseburger and fries.
We are both huge fans of Survivor and The Amazing Race
Heidi and I are both in wedding planning mode for our oldest boys this year!
