SPONSOR SPOTLIGHT — HOLLY DESIGNS

Spot Lit Wall

We’ve had a few hiccups on my end of life and so we are a bit late getting started in our SPONSOR SPOTLIGHTS for this month.  But no fear…the designers are SO fantastic that I know it was worth the wait.  Today we have the honor of featuring Holly Designs @ Shabby Pickle!  Holly’s work is so creative, so whimsical, and so FUN.  I can’t wait to show you all of her awesome kits.  But first, let’s look at what she created for THE DIGI FILES 7. If you are unsure of what THE DIGI FILES are, you can read HERE for the full scoop!

Isn’t this kit just so cute and fun?  I love the muted colors and fun whimsical elements.  And I ADORE the fact that Holly includes both shadowed and un-shadowed versions of her elements — that just takes the cake for me.  Holly’s designs are perfect for the “fantasy scrapper” but they are also fabulous for a perfectly imperfect “paper”-like scrapper like myself.  Here is a layout I made using the kit.

The kit was just the perfect prompt for me to do a layout I have been wanting to do — all about my kids needing to just be KIDS and not be pulled in a zillion different directions with a zillion different activities.  I just want them to have time to run and jump and play and imagine and be HAPPY AND CAREFREE.

Here are some other fabulous layouts from both THE DAILY DIGI artist team and Holly’s rockin’ CT

There were several things that got me interested in designing. First, I would often see paper scrapped layouts, advertisements, throw pillows…anything really, and I would think “I wish somebody would make that for digital scrappers,” or “I think those colors would be perfect for a kit,” etc. Then, a little over a year ago, Laura (owner of Shabby Pickle) pm’d me and told me she was going to expand her store and wanted to know if I had ever thought of designing. I was really surprised, as you can imagine, lol, but I thought it would be a great opportunity and if I ever was going to try designing, it might as well have been then. So, long story short, lol, I spent the entire month trying to learn all I could about designing and getting some products ready for my debut one month later.

One year and three months

Both. But these days, I definitely design more often than I scrap, lol. I do have several scrap albums that I want to work on, and many photos that I need to scrap.

It varies. I would venture to say at least 20 hours most weeks.

IHmm…that’s a difficult question for me,lol. I think I always like my most recent kits best, but I don’t know if I can pick one favorite, lol. I suppose my favorites would be:

SUMMER MEMORIES

smprev-1

or BEDTIME STORIES

btshrv

Hmm…all my kits sell in pretty similar amounts, but I think Bedtimes Stories or Playground Adventures may have topped the charts.

1. My family and friends.
2. Learning something new.
3. Otter popsicles.
4. Rainy nights (I love to listen to the rain, and I love the fresh smell).
5. My dogs (and animals in general).
6. Bookstores.
7. My dvr ( because I never have time to watch the shows I like when they actually come out, lol).
8.  Music.
9.  Quirky boutiques
10. Travel

1. The sound of metal touching other metal (especially flatware, like when knives and forks touch, lol; It makes me shiver. (Same with people biting their flatware when they eat, eek, I get shivers just thinking about it, lol).
2. Bad manners.
3. When I’m running late; I don’t like being late.
4. Really hot weather .
5. Feet (I don’t like feet at all. I like their function though, lol)
6. When I can’t find something.
7. People who are conceited.
8.  Waiting in long lines.
9.  Ignorance.
10. Unfinished business ( I feel uneasy when tasks loom).

And now that we have gotten to know Holly a bit better, let’s see some more gorgeous work from her!  It was so hard to choose my favorites!
