BIO: Hello all, I’m Vicki Bridges otherwise known as Mizbizibee. Even though I love digi, I’m also a paper artist and have been for years. I teach rubber stamping classes, art journaling and card making in central Oklahoma. After recovering from back surgery in 2011 I decided to do something that wasn’t work related and just for me. I made the move to return to memory keeping after a five year break and do it digi style this time. I purchased Photoshop Elements then after a brief Google search I found the Daily Digi. I seriously doubt a day goes by that I don’t consult the Daily Digi. I live in central Oklahoma with my ever-faithful and never-boring hubby Tom and our extended family that includes two grand kiddlets live nearby.
5 PRODUCTS I CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT:
Templates, they are a great time saving springboard and don’t be afraid to make them your own. I like neutral papers, brushes are a must, ribbons and word art is huge for me. Word art will make me buy the kit every time!
I’m rather eclectic without a lot of embellishment but first and for most I rely on good design. I want balance and yet a nice flow from one design element to another. The photos and journaling are the stars and I want them to shine, digi embellishments should only play a supporting role and never overpower the photos and story.
MY SCRAPPING IDOL(S)
Queen Ali reigns supreme and I have learn volumes from her and her classes. I’m admirer of Cathy Zielske and Katie Pertiet even though their styles are such opposites.
WHY I AM EXCITED TO BE ON THE TEAM:
TDD has taught me so much about the art of memory keeping and working in Photoshop Elements. But it goes deeper, as a working artist TDD has helped me to feel connected with other artists and inspired even though my day job is in actual paper verse digi paper. To be a part of this community is a privilege and yes I admit it, a validation of my work. I have found the mother ship!
