IN THE DESIGNER’S STUDIO WITH VERA LIM

DesignersStudioVeralim

I’m excited to be welcoming back the beautiful and talented Vera to The Digi Files this month!!  Vera was in the first ever issue of The Digi Files, I think she had agreed to contribute even before our site went live! 🙂 It’s always fun to have these designers that were willing to take a risk on us back! Vera’s unique style is fun, whimsical, youthful, and very artistic!   So many great, inspirational ideas to scrap come to mind when I see her products.  Let’s take a closer look at her contribution to The Digi Files this month:

Hmm… I have a tip for designers… if you’re like me, you hate making previews.. I have found that making your previews as you go is really helpful, so when your kit is done, so is your preview! 🙂

I got into digital scrapbooking in 2004, not long after my son was born. I went to our local stationery store and found scrapbooking supplies, I was so excited. Scrapbooking is not something you do in the country where I came from. I never knew about scrapbooking until I found the supplies in that store, however since I was young I did some scrapbooking in my own way, like sticking photos on the wall with writing etc. When I got home from the store, I looked on the internet about scrapbooking and found that I could do it digitally! I designed my own papers and element for my layouts, then I started posting my layouts at Scrapbook-bytes. A year after that, people starting to ask me if I’d sell my designs, so I decided to give it a go. It will be my shop’s 5th anniversary April this year!

I’ve got a Macbook, I love it! I think it got 4GB of RAM.

I use photoshop CS4

I’ve got a Rebel XT and 85mm canon lens, that’s what I use mostly to take pictures. I’ve got a telephoto lens and wide angle lens too, but hardly use them to take photos.

I use WACOM Bamboo all the time, no more mouse for me!
