IN THE DESIGNER’S STUDIO WITH LAURA BANASIAK

DesignersStudiolbanasiak

I discovered Laura toward the end of summer when she had a school themed grab bag.  I was so excited when I unzipped it and found some really cool products that were high quality!  She has a unique twist to most themes (she calls it; a touch of emo) and it is fun to see a unique and fresh perspective. She has us ready to set some resolutions and goals with her contribution this month:

One thing to always remember is WHY you are scrapbooking in the first place. Will family and friends years from now love and appreciate the pages that you’ve made and the memories you’ve captured? Will they look at the photo and remember that day? If not, put a little journaling or title work on your page, it will surely help tell your story to future generations!

I started designing digital scrapbooking kits in the fall of 2008 and just haven’t looked back! I taught myself Photoshop in order to make all of the cute forum signatures I was seeing around at Babycenter. One thing kind of led to another. 🙂

Most people would probably say that the majority of my kits have an ’emo’ undertone, hehe. I create what evokes emotion in me and find it very hard to create a kit with a theme that I can’t relate to.

Oh man, this is a tough one! I’m like a couple of the other contributors that I read up on…ask me Photoshop questions but other than that, no clue! Hehe.
