Today's Daily Designer....Queen Brat Designs!

Tell Us A Story....

I live in the beautiful state of West Virginia where I was born and raised.   I live with my sons, Zachary and Dylan, my daughter, ReAnna, my grandson, Riley, and my furbaby, Vader, a black Maine coon cat. My oldest son, Freddy, passed away May 5, 2014 of liver failure. We fought a 12 year battle trying to get him healthy, but he became too sick too quickly to receive his liver transplant.  This has left a huge hole in my heart and each day has become a challenge to just get out of bed.  Designing has now become my therapy, but I miss having my biggest critic around to tell me what works and what doesn't with each kit.

 I officially began doing graphic design in 1999.  My first projects were web site design that included my own website and one for my nephew, Luke, so that my brother could share pictures with the extended family.  I then got heavily into signature tags which lead my designing elements and papers to make the tags.   I officially began designing scrap kits about 9 years ago at the suggestion of a friend.  My favorite type of kits to design are romantic, lacy, flowered kits, but I have a wide variety available in many themes.  I love making holiday kits with Christmas being my favorite.   I used both PhotoShop and PaintShopPro for designing my kits.  For making layouts and quick pages I use PS, PSP, and MyMemories Suite.

I'm not sure what the future may hold for me in the design field.  I would love to someday open a craft store that would offer all types of scrap supplies for those that do digital and paper scrapping.  Teaching classes would also be included with that so that I can share my love of scrapping with others.
