I am really excited to welcome Anna to THE DIGI FILES this month! Anna has a fun and whimsical style that works well for digital scrapbookers that want to create paper looking OR fanatasy style. I always find something in her kits that brings a smile to my face. Here is a closer look at her contribution:
This is just ONE of SEVEN collections that you receive when you purchase THE DIGI FILES! What a great way to try out new-to-you designers or maybe even a style that you don’t normally buy. It’s always fun to push our scrapping creativity! Here are some layouts created with ‘Sunshine After Rain’ (don’t you just love that name?):

I’m 35 years old, staying-at-home mom of two kids (4 and 2), I’m living in Austria right now.
When I’m finished with a new product or LO, I usually put it aside for a day or at least a few hours. After the “rest period” I look at it with fresh eyes and often make one or two changes which improves the page (or preview if it’s a product) a lot.
When I was living in the US I started making forum siggies on mommies’ boards, and that’s how I first met digital scrapbooking products. I didn’t use them a lot in my siggies, but most other siggy designers did, and I knew immediately that I wanted to make digiscrap elements myself. Which is exactly what I did, so I was a designer BEFORE I was a proper scrapper.
For themes, I’m usually inspired by things my kids say, do or have, for colors I often turn to interior design magazines.
I have a real-life tool box, full of ribbons, and strings, and clips, and beads, and buttons, and an amazing collection of useless and indescribable bits and pieces. And I also have a virtual toolbox on my computer. I have a DELL laptop with Linux installed on it. My main programs are GIMP and Inkscape, and lately I also use PSE. My camera is a Sony Alpha 200. I have a Wacom Bamboo Fun tablet and loving it!
