I am thrilled to welcome back SarahJ to The Digi Files this month! I absolutely love Sarah’s bold, bright style! Something about her kits just make me happy! I know that I can always count on Sarah whenever I need something fun for my layouts! Her style is definitely unique and super fun to create with! Just check out our team’s layouts with her contribution! Let’s take a closer look at “95 Days of Summer Fun” that is included in The Digi Files this month:

I’m Sarah Jones, from York, Nebraska. I graduated with a degree in Marketing from the University of Nebraska. (GO BIG RED!) I work full-time running a college bookstore. I couldn’t ask for a better job although it seriously cuts into my computer time! I have been married for 10+ years to Jereme, who is a teacher and football coach. We have one son, Noah, who is 9. At our house you can always find someone watching, playing, or taking about sports. We also have a Golden Retriever named Mayzie and a cat named Pickle.
I started digi-scrapping in 2004, shortly after Noah was born. I discovered signature-making on a parenting board and someone on the signature board introduced me to digi-scrapping. It gave me something to do when up at all hours of the night with a newborn! I began selling in May of 2005 and the rest is history! Most of my time has been at The DigiChick.
I am inspired by colors mostly, as a start. Then I usually try and make a list of what I want in the kit or paper pack. I do love a good checklist (the checking-off part especially!) so this really helps the process along!
Computer: Dell Vostro 2510 laptop with 3GB of RAM.
Program: Photoshop CS2, Paint Shop Pro 8
Camera: Sadly, I use my iPhone for taking photos. I know, I know. I am in the market for a “real” camera though!
Anything Else: Wacom Graphire Tablet
I’ve said it before, I love actions. I have created actions for the more tedious processes like previewing and making alphas, so it really saves a lot of time! I can always use more time!
In the past I had never really liked to make “theme” kits, but my husband and son have such a passion for sports, it rubbed off on me a little bit to create some sports kits. This is my favorite, and my son helped me with the word art to make sure I didn’t miss any baseball terms! I used it for some hybrid projects for Noah’s 8th birthday party, so it was kind of fun to see the kit in action!
My most popular kit is Up, Up, and Away. I really like the feel of this kit–bright, fresh, and fun! It has quite a few unique elements, including hand-stitched felt accents and a paper airplane.
