Sponsor Spotlight –ah! Designs {Amy Hutchinson}

Spot Lit Wall

THE DAILY DIGI is excited to have our first Sponsor Spotlight of the month!  Amy Hutchinson, creator of ah! Designs, is a talented and creative designer and store owner.   I love her rich and textured papers and her “comfortable” color palettes.  Amy runs the store AFTER FIVE DESIGNS and is a true asset to our community!  I am really excited to show off some of her work! Let’s start off by seeing what she created for THE DIGI FILES 5!

See what I mean about her “comfortable” colors?  I just look at this kit and feel warm and cozy and am craving my favorite chai latte from my favorite coffee shop.  And here are some pages from our team with the kit:

Now, let’s get to know Amy!

Above all else, I am a 30-something full-time mom. My husband and I have been married for 13 years, and we have 3 beautiful girls (ages 9, 11, and 15), and one rambunctious son (age 4). We live and love in the music-filled city of Memphis, TN.

I love photography and have been improving my skills slowly over the past couple years. I have been a digital designer for about a year and half now, but I was a scrapper before that. My designer name is ah! Designs, named for my initials but also for the sound you make after taking a refreshing swig of something nice. And, yes, I do enjoy the occasional cocktail! 😉
