Girl Boy Girl Designs: And Four Chickens

DesignersStudio

Jen from Girl Boy Girl desings really knows how to rock the boy kits! She creates many of her own paper pieced elements that you can find inside her kits. We are excited to have her with us in The Digi Files this month with a bold and bright collection called “Roboto”.  Let’s take a closer look at “Roboto” that is included in The Digi Files this month:

I started paper scrapbooking years ago with Creative Memories. I soon started adding my own custom titles, journaling etc. that I had done on the computer to my layouts. Then I stumbled across Shabby Princess – OH EM GEE! At first I didn’t get digi-scrapping, but I printed out papers and elements for my traditional layouts, then digi finally “clicked.” Talk about HEAVEN-like everyone else, I was instantly addicted. I can’t leave my paper supplies behind, though, I love them too much, so hybrid is a perfect fit for me. I’m not sure exactly how I started designing-I just did-and although I love having my families memories recorded, I enjoy designing more than scrapping, I’m weird that way!

I am literally inspired by EVERYTHING! Napkins, songs, color combos, things my kids say-the list goes on and on.

I have a Dell windows XP (I think – I/m so not computer literate) – 6 GB of ram and running out of storage space. I use photoshop CS3, artrage, and freehand (totally old-school). And I have a cheapie Genius drawing tablet. I use a canon rebel xti, and would really love to take some photography classes to learn how to really use it. I also have a CanoScan 8800F scanner-and who could forget my Cricut cutter and SCAL software – it’s my newest toy and I have sooo much fun with it!

tipstricks
You can change your shortcut keys in photoshop!! Just go to Edit > Keyboard Shortcuts. Find whatever you want to do and create your own shortcut. Things that you do ALL THE TIME may not have a preset shortcut, so create your own. Saves me a ton of time.
