WM [Squared]: The Science Side

DesignerLogo

Wendy is another fabulous designer I’ve been able to meet in real life and I’m happy to welcome her back to The Digi Files! I really adore WM[squared]’s ability to create amazing themed kits (especially her travel collections)! Her color combinations and doodles are delightful too. Wendy creates most of her own doodles that can be found in her kits.  Wendy’s line of handwritten fonts are perfect for the digital scrapbook layout! Let’s take a closer look at “Hello Friend” kit and “Wendy Teeny” – the font; that are included in The Digi Files this month:

Name
I’m a full time student and designer. I’m majoring in Biology, hoping to transfer next fall to pursue a degree in Forensic Biology. Everyone is surprised when I tell them this, but I love the science side of law enforcement. I’m a 30 something gal, living in South Texas. No kids, but two adorable pups!

started
I first started paper scrapping, around 1999 or so, and grew my supplies, like most paper scrappers. Then I moved from Texas to California (in 2006), and because everything is *so* expensive in California, including cute paper scrapbooking supplies. I stumbled upon a digital scrapbooking site, and I was already familiar with Photoshop, so I tried it out, and I haven’t looked back since!

I started out with freebies (as most of us do, i think), then got on my first store CT, and dabbled in design while CTing. I eventually started selling at that store, and the rest is history! Now I design more than I scrap, which is bad, i know!

inspired
A color palette, an idea for an embellishment, a themed. It doesn’t take much to inspire me.

tools
Computer: I use Windows 7, 64-bit OS, on a Dell Inspiron One. I have a 25 inch monitor (it’s kind of like an iPad where you can touch the screen, but I learned quickly that that feature irritated me, so I turned it off. lol), a wireless mouse / keyboard. 8.00 GB RAM. 1tb Hard Drive
Program: For design I use PSCS6. For font making I use High-Logic Scanahand and High-Logic FontCreator
Camera: I have a Nikon D-90
Anything Else: I have a tablet that I use for some word art bits, elements, etc. It’s a Wacom Intuos.
tipstricks
If you’re a designer, or someone getting into design, doing the preview as you design the kit is a HUGE help. I used to create an entire kit, then go back and preview it. Not only did it take forever, but when it was all said and done, I found that I had to fill in where I had missed by not seeing the entire kit together. When you preview as you go, you see what the kit needs, and you make sure that it’s well rounded.

favorite
I love this kit because it’s a great general kit. It has blue, for more boyish LO’s, but it also has a lot of girly elements too. It’s a great kit to tell the story of your love, your family or children. It’s very versatile.

popular
I also love this kit, but I think it’s popular because everyone seems to just LOVE England. I do, don’t you? It was inspired by a then recent trip to London and surrounding area. The colors match with the rest of my Great Escape Collection!
