What is the first thing you think of when you hear, “TaylorMade Designs”? Crisp? Clean? Warm? Cozy? I think of all these things and more. Amanda Taylor, the talent behind TaylorMade Designs, is with us here at THE DAILY DIGI this month and we are so excited! I just love how serene her designs are — her kits, template packs, quick pages, and word art all bring a feeling of familiarity and softness. I love them! For THE DIGI FILES 6 she created a fun paper pack just jammed full of fun (and yet somehow still soft) summer papers.
And here are some layouts by our artist team using these gorgeous papers

STORE: TaylorMade Designs at Oscraps
Going from a full-time career to staying home with the kids, designing was the perfect way to keep my new-found scrapping habit alive while making a little extra spending money. Little did I know, it would become more fulfilling than any other creative outlet I have ever pursued.
I started designing in August 2007.
Editor’s Note: Just look at the awesome layout Amanda made using stuff from THE DIGI FILES 6!
This varies depending on what’s going on in “real life”. I usually spend at least 30 to 40 hours a week designing and marketing. Although I don’t have a lot of time during the day with the kids home, I am quite the night owl. Most of my designing is done between the hours of 9pm and 4am, when the house is nice and quite. (I drink a LOT of coffee. hahaha)
My favorite product to date would probably have to be the Composure kit, or maybe the Unscripted word art. Hmmm… it’s hard to choose.
