It is so exciting for me to be welcoming back Kaye to The Digi Files as she was one of the first designers to contribute The Digi Files.  I love Kayes fun doodles and felt pieces that really have become her signature style.  She is super talented and super sweet!  Let’s take a closer look at her very cute contribution to The Digi Files this month:

When scrapping I like to keep track of my credit list as I create the layout, otherwise it can be a nightmare remembering where everything came from. I used to type them into the ‘File Info’ area in photoshop, this way they always remain with the layout. I now use Anna Forrest Designs’ credit tracker which does it all for me.

When my first child was born I bought some paper supplies with intentions of making some pages but I never did, as I was always concerned about making a mistake and not being able to change it, then a friend showed me a digital scrapbooking program that she had purchased. I already had photoshop due to my work so I started scrapping in photoshop, I then googled digital scrapbooking and discovered the big wide world of it!

I created a few papers and elements for my friend and I to use and from there, my designing career started.

Inspirations comes from so many places for me, it might be what my children are playing with, or a colour scheme, magazines, music, and the list goes on.

I have 2 tool boxes, I have the one that is full of all my felt, markers & paints and then I have my pc which has 4gb ram, photoshop, illustrator, wacom tablet and scanner. I also have a canon 450D camera.

This was harder to choose than I thought it would be, but I’ve narrowed it down to two, bumps and blahs
