Tell us about your family

I am married, 18 years now with 4 children.  Age 20, 16, 14, and 9.  We are a loud, tightly knit little group.  We are all highly sarcastic and just love having fun.

How long have you been designing?

This December marks 6 years for me.

What program(s) do you use?

I use Photoshop & Illustrator CC.

What part of designing comes easiest to you (themes, colors, papers, elements?)?

Once I find colors, it’s the papers and then flowers.

What part of designing is most challenging to you? 

Sometimes I struggle with themed elements or making sure I have enough “plain” items in a kit.

What inspires you?  

Color definitely.  Vintage items, patterns, and quotes.

If you’re running low on design mojo, where do you go to kickstart your creativity?  

I often time with browse around my favorite stores, hit Pinterest or start looking at color trends.

What has been the greatest compliment you have received about your designs?

Any compliment I consider great, because someone took the time to give it.  It always warms my heart when someone takes the time to mail or message about my designs.

What do see is the next trend in digital design?

I am not really sure lol, I would say that I am seeing more and more typography in kits and I think I see the potential of that developing beautifully!

What is your most recent finished project?

My most recent finished project at the time of this interview is the collab with Studio Flergs, called “Candy Rush” It’s the 8th part of our #believeinmagic project for 2015. (Interviewer's note: I LOVE this project series!)

What project are you working on now (or next)?

I am working on another #believeinmagic release and planning the next one after that!

Favorite tv show?

I love crime dramas, so any of those! What is your guilty pleasure? Gummy bears. Where is the farthest you have been from home? Caribbean. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you make your home? Somewhere in the Caribbean, maybe Turks Caicos Amber's Product Picks
