SPONSOR SPOTLIGHT — Kaye Winiecki

Spot Lit Wall

To say that I am excited to share this fabulous designer with you is an understatement!  Kaye Winiecki is quickly becoming a new favorite designer of mine.  I originally spotted her because of her templates.  They instantly caught my eye and after using one of them for the first time, I was hooked.  As I started looking at her other templates and then her digital designs, I just got sucked in.  There is something about her color palettes and sense of style that just clicks with me — that “perfectly imperfect” style that combines good design principles with a touch of whimsy.  I hope you love it all as much as I do.  For  THE DIGI FILES 4, Kaye created a template pack AND a mini kit — yea!

And here is a page I created using both the templates and the mini kit.  I love that her templates are versatile — the elements (often painted flowers) can be recolored and used as is OR they can be used for placement idea of other elements.  For someone element-challenged like me, they are PERFECT.

question1

I didn’t intentionally start designing, I just started creating my own papers and elements and from there some wonderful opportunities came my way.

question2

I have been designing for 3 years now, wow times flies when you are having fun!

question3

Both! I have found that if I’m not in the scrapping mood then I am in the designing mood, so most of the time it balances itself pretty well.

(Here is a layout of Kaye’s…isn’t she fabulous?)

question4

It really is hard to say as I don’t tend to sit down and only do designing or marketing etc, that may be the intention but it is too easy to get distracted and wander off into digiland. I tend to use the computer off and on during the day and am glued to it in the evenings!

question5

My most favourite products are the collabs I have done with other designers as I like to see how the different designing styles blend together but my favourite product of mine is probably ‘baked with love’  as I made these whilst my son and I played ‘shops’ together

question6-copy

One of my best selling products is my Paper Daisies which was part of the January BYOC and my aflafla alpha seems to be popular too.
