Hi there! My name is Amanda Yi! I am 25, single mother of an amazing 5 year old boy, and we reside in upstate New York! Besides designing fun digital scrapbook kits, I also attend college majoring in Sociology.
I wanted to share this layout I created using Traci Reed’s Pocket Life: October Collection because I have been struggling to keep up with my Project Life for 2014 but I am slowly chugging along! I absolutely love this one, with tons of focus on the photos and my super fun title work!
I began paper scrapbooking in 2011 when my son was born because I wanted to record all those little precious memories. Shortly after I found digital scrapbooking and instantly became addicted! After spending time on many creative teams and being inspired by all the amazing designers, I decided to start testing the waters of designing my own products. I officially started designing in May of 2013 and love to be the one to provide the goodies for memory keeping!
I am usually inspired by the many pins on Pinterest. Whether it’s color inspiration, quotes, or a pattern, I always find a way to get the creative juices flowing!
Computer: I have an HP desktop with a single monitor (even though I would love two, maybe even three!) and Windows operating system all the way!
Program: I work with Photoshop CS6, & Illustrator.
Camera: I have a Nikon Coolpix L840. I am no professional photographer but this baby does the job in capturing all those little moments.
Anything Else: I recently got a Intuous Drawing Tablet and I am in love with it! I am still getting the hang of it, but it will be a big contribution to my work in the near future!
One tip I would like to share with you is to LOVE what your working on. Whether its a scrapbook layout or designing, put all of yourself into the project and be sure it speaks to you!
Get Lost is one of my favorite release because well.. I love to explore, near and far, I just love new places. I especially love this “explore” themed kit because of it’s fun and unique colors! It just makes me smile every time I look at it!
Mom Confessions is my most popular product. I believe that it is so popular because many can relate to the theme of the bundle. I personally was struggling with many aspects of motherhood during that time and it actually inspired me to create this product, and honestly, I felt so much better after it was completed. It was like an outlet of sorts for me!
