We are so excited to welcome Zig Zag Scrap as a sponsor this month! Zig Zag Scrap was a new-to-me (Steph) store, but I have quickly fallen in love with the designers there and I’m pretty sure you will too after you see their contribution to this month’s files!
Here is a look at what our team has done with these fun goodies:

Zig Zag Scrap started out a year and a half ago selling designs by Annick Philibert and Lynne-Marie Favreau, who are both from Quebec, Canada. They wanted to provide products and service in French as well as English (you can access the store in either language from the homepage). Now, the store includes designers from Brazil, the Netherlands, Germany, Australia, France and the USA. Designers who speak another language are encouraged to include a version of their product in their mother tongue. Even some of the English designers have started creating products in other languages!
Zig Zag Scrap also features a wonderful color coordinated seasonal collection. Their contribution this month to the Digi Files is made to match the winter palette.
Rita (Chantilly Lace): for the challenge
Christine (Cheekymonkey designs): I was curious about what it would be like to make my own papers and elements… and the more I learned, the more I was hooked!
Dunia: I started making freebies, then I was invited to sell in a store and I never stopped.
Mirjam: The truth is because Annick suggested I’d give it a try. The thought of designing had crossed my mind but I never had given it a serious thought before that
1 year or less – Christine, Ashley, Rita, Mirjam, Bouille
1-2 years – Dunia, Lynne-Marie, Annick, Alice
More than 2 years – Lauraskathi
Our designers seem to average around 20 hours per week. We all have busy family lives and some have other jobs. Rita and Annick (the store owners) both have full time jobs. Fortunately Zig Zag Scrap has a wonderful support team with Cheekymonkey and LilachO helping out as store assistants, Doodlebop as our promotional coordinator, Yam with the newsletter, Ninigoesdigi helping with customer service, and a really strong promotional team of enablers and creative layout artists! They also clock in a generous number of hours that cannot go without mention! We love you team!
