Game Night

DesignerLogo


My husband and ten-year-old are big time game lovers. Since I am not competitive, games are a take it or leave it thing with me, but for them? Games are their love language. And so we have lots of games and every birthday and holiday bring in more. We are so glad to have Miss Mint with us this month and her kit, Game Night, is definitely going to be a go-to kit for me. Let’s take a look!



This is ONE of SEVEN collections you get when you become a member of

All of that, including access to exclusive collaborations every four months you are a member, for only $7.50 total per month! Here are some layouts created using Miss Mint’s contribution:

Name

Hello scrappers! I’m delighted to be back once again at The Daily Digi. My name is Pamela but around digi-land I’m best known as Miss Mint and I’ve been the owner/designer/tech support/customer service representative/social media & marketing manager/regular gal Friday behind Peppermint Creative for the last 10 years.

When I’m not busy playing in Peppermint-land, I use my design skills to energize and empower other entrepreneurs within their business by creating and consulting them on branding, promotional graphics and web design/development.

This is a throw back to my awesome 2014 Disney trip with my CT member, Mint Chick Mary Jo. I finally got around to scrapping these silly pictures when I designed the Go Wild Collection designed for those Disney Adventureland pictures. I couldn’t resist.

started

My professional background is in copywriting and graphic design – two skills have come in very handy. I’m probably one of the only designers that is not and never was a scrapbooker. I love to design and let others work their magic with their amazing scrapping skills. I worked at an interactive advertising agency for a while and then did some freelance design but found it really creatively unfulfilling. Then I stumbled into designing scrapbooking products as a bit of a happy accident and loved it. I started setting up a store just to fill the creative void I had been feeling figuring it would be a fun little hobby. In April 2006, Peppermint Creative was born and it unexpectedly snowballed into my full-time job.

inspired

I’m not a scrapbooker, I just like to design so my inspiration mainly comes from my amazing customers and my super talented team. I love that they are not shy about telling me what kinds of designs they want to see. For me, designing is a puzzle you can never solve. There is always more to learn and more to try. With every kit I feel like I always learn at least 3 new things. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve shouted at my computer ‘there’s a button for that?!?’ after discovering a hidden Photoshop function that completes a task I’ve been doing in 34 manual steps in just one click.

tools

Computer: I do all my designing on a 15″ MacBook Pro hooked up to two external monitors. I love the real estate of the double big screen and the optional portability of the laptop. Best of both worlds! My newest toys are my Canon iP8720 printer which is amazing.

Program: Photoshop + Illustrator CS

Camera: I have a Canon 7D which I have not been using nearly as much as I should. Lenses: 50mm f/1.8, 17-85mm f/1.4-5.6, 75-300mm f/1.4-5.6 and the 430EX Speedlite External Flash. I also use my Olympus Pen E-PL1 quite a bit but now which is a cross between a point and shoot and a DSLR, which is pretty cool but now that I have the iPhone6 I’ve been using that as my camera most often.

Anything Else: I recently splurged on a very sexy Wacom Cintiq Tablet that has a touch screen and a full display so you can draw right on the screen and see what you’re drawing. It’s pretty amazing.

tipstricks

I don’t know if everyone already does this but I find the History Palette to be a must-have function. When designing or scrapping a page, I’m constantly using the History function in Photoshop to take snapshots of my work if I’m unsure if I like what I did. For example if I design a layout and I think it’s ok I’ll take a snapshot. Then I can go move everything around and see if I like it the second way better. Take another snapshot. You can then toggle between snapshots to compare. I find this helpful because the ‘undo’ function only goes back so many steps. To get the History Palette go under Window>History and click the little camera icon at the bottom on the palette to take a snapshot. Note these are not saved when you save your file so you can’t open the file later to find your history but it’s very helpful while working.

favorite

The Go Wild Collection is my favorite at the moment. I love the wild colors and fun elements. I love that there are so many packs to mix and match. It was originally designed specifically for Disney Adventureland memories but I created a full add-on for all your animal, zoo and safari photos.
