I am privileged to be welcoming Wild Blueberry Ink to The Digi Files this month! As I have been able to work with and become acquainted with the designer behind the brand, I have really enjoyed seeing how her heart comes through her work! It does seem that each collection has a story to tell and a bit of Wild Blueberry Ink heart inside. Let’s take a closer look at “Innocence” that is included in The Digi Files this month:
Here are some layouts created using Wild Blueberry Ink’s contribution:

When I left my job 2 years ago I was the Creative Director for the largest newspaper in NC but I found myself missing something. That’s when Aubrey Rose came into our lives and I decided to become a SAHM.
The 10+ years I spent in corporate America didn’t come close to preparing me for this new job I had decided to take on.
Now I spend my days watching Bubble Guppies and preparing my very independent 2 year old for preschool. I have learned to laugh at myself, I have learned patience and I have learned the meaning of unconditional love.
I spend my nights balancing my design with a very lonely husband and 4 even lonelier fur babies. Thankfully for me all 5 of them are very understanding.
Love You Always

I stumbled upon the world of digital scrapbooking in 2008 when I was searching for a gift for my husband’s 30th birthday. I came across some photobooks on Shutterfly and decided that I wanted to recreate one titled “30 Sentiments From 30 People On Your 30th Birthday.” The credits listed various scrapbook sites so I checked those sites out. I spent hours looking through the galleries amazed at the layouts. I was working as a graphic designer so there was no learning time for me and I was able to jump right into the hobby. I was also 8 1/2 months pregnant at the time and immediately moved from the birthday book to documenting EVERYTHING about our new baby. I have been addicted ever since.
The following May I made the decision to leave work to become a stay at home mommy but soon realized that I really missed designing and working. It was about that time that Little Dreamer Designs started their apprentice contest. I entered the contest with no expectations of ever being accepted. About a week later Michelle notified me that I had been accepted and within 2 months I was one of the winners with my very own shop at Little Dreamer.
All of my inspiration comes from my everyday life. I will read a book to my daughter and something will spark, I will pass by a cute shirt and the colors will stick in my mind or I will hear a story and feel the need to tell it through my designs.
I seriously could not survive with the following: Illustrator, InDesign, Photoshop, Wacom Tablet, Nikon D70, Tamron Lens 18-200mm, Nikon Lens f3.5-5.6 and the 50mm f/1.4
I am also a huge fan of TotallyRad Actions, Pioneer Woman and the amazing 4 Hens. I have an 21 Inch iMac that is about 3 years old that I do 80% of my work on. Just recently I purchased a 15 Inch Powerbook.
Be true to your style! At the end of the day you are spending this time to record your family’s memories so don’t get sidetracked by the gorgeous layouts in galleries that are attracting all the comments. Find what works for you and your storytelling style and stick with it. It may take a while to develop that style but once you do you will see how much easier it is to scrap from the heart.
