Featured Designer: Jill DZines


Today we are going to meet Jill D from Jill DZines. Jill is one of our amazing designers and will be offering not only a great giveaway today, but a freebie as well!


-----------------------------------------------------------------------


Hi! I am Jill Dobis (AKA Jill DZines) and am so happy to be at MyMemories with the many FABulous MyMemories designers!  
                              
I live in Minnesota (I often call it "MinneSNOWta" - only half-jokingly! LOL!) with my husband, 2 fantastic teen-age kids, 1 dog and 1 cat.  
      
Besides designing digital scrapand hybrid products, I am also a musician, playing piano/keyboard, various percussion instruments (like conga and bongo drums, etc.) and blues harmonica.
  
I began digi-scrapping in 2006, and started designing dital products about a year later. I absolutely LOVE designing, and I love learning to make new kinds of items in my software.  

My favorite kit right now (of mine) is probably "Celebrate Summer" which is one of my newest ones.  I love the bright fun colors and theme - and I have lots of fun summer photos of my own kids to scrap, so it will be perfect for that!  :)

Please visit my blog (JillDZines.com) where you can find samples of my work (freebies!!) along with a few tutorials and my latest design news.

Hi Jill, Congratulations on your fabulous creations.
All their kits are very beautiful, very diverse elements and vibrant colors. My favorites are Fresh and Celebrate Summer.
It would be wonderful to be included with your store, this magnificent day since July 18 over a full spring.
Beyond that would be used in my first LOs as digital scrapbooking met this year and have not had opportunity to do them. I'm in the learning phase. I want to learn everything from them to make the creation of the kits.
Thank you for the opportunity.

I love the color and designs of Fresh.
Thanks so much for the freebie

Photomama said...

The rules said one kit - I have 2 favorite kits - Fresh - I love the colors which remind me of a soft sprng rain - the colors just run together like water flowing over a garden. the hints of bright shiny silver makes it look like a stray reflecting ball all shinining and clean after the rain. Love the soft plaid which blends the colors together and the flowers ready to make your own garden. The other kit would be Celebrate Summer. The colors are pretty - not the spring colors but colors that look like a cute summer dress and a swimsuit and cover around the pool.

Since I was a child I loved rainbows. From age 12-20 I was a Rainbow Girl (Masonic sponsored but family Masonic heritage not required) and we had so much fun dressing up in formal gowns of every possible rainbow shade. So naturally my favorites are your "celebrate summer" packs that scream rainbow to me. Thanks for a chance to win all of your great designs.

OH my goodness! We just got home from vacation (first time I have left home without taking my laptop with me, in about 5 years - and it was wonderful!) I didn't even go to the public library... just checked my e-mail on my Kindle a couple times... so I'm just seeing all these wonderful comments now... THANK YOU, Ladies, for your incredibly kind and encouraging comments! You made my day, for sure!

I'm excited to see who wins! :)

If any of you have made any pages using any of my work, I'd love to see it, so if you'd like to send me a link where I can see your page, I'll be sure to stop by and comment! Thanks again for all of the super-nice comments! :)
