GET TO KNOW A LITTLE MORE ABOUT VICKI.

Tell us a little about yourself.

I am 56, married  33 years this year to the same man, with one daughter and we  live in a country town,  Grafton aptly named the Jacaranda city because of it's Jacaranda tree lined streets, (3 hours south of Brisbane & 7 hours north of Sydney roughly) about an hour inland from the coast in far northern NSW Australia.

Where have you lived?

I have only ever lived in Grafton.

Where do you live now?

Still in Grafton, same house since I was 7 years old.

Who is in your family?

Me, hubby and our 37 year old daughter  who is currently living with us and Ditzy the cat.

Do you have any pets?

Yes.. well our daughter's cat Ditzy

Do you play a sport?

I don't really play a sport, but I swim 3 times a week and walk the other two, and try to do yoga a few times a week also.

What is your favourite book?

I don't really have one but love contemporary romance, though I don't do much reading these days.

How did you start in digital scrapbooking? 

A bit by accident, at the first scrapbooking site I ever really got involved in, Digiridoo Scraps back in about 2009. It was through a design challenge, that then became a mentoring program.

Do you have any other hobbies besides scrapbooking?

Yes, miniatures which I don't do much anymore and a bit of off the page scrapbooking.

Do you have a job/career other than designing?

No

What is an average day for you? 

I spend about 5-6 hours most days at my Mac either designing. scrapping or helping out at the store I sell at.

How long have you been designing?

Since 2010.

How did you come up with your name and logo?

It was just a bit of fun.. Dana was our cat who used to often sit on my desk or near me when I was at the computer  and would often walk all over the keyboard,or lie on it... hence Dana's Footprint Digital Design.  I have often considered rebranding to my own name... except it is boring and I have started to become known as Dana's Footprint.

How much time per week do you devote to designing?

A lot!

Where do you find your inspiration?

Everywhere, things I see in books or magazines or on the internet.

Are there any designs who have influenced the way you design?

No not really though I love the arty, vintage, shabby grungy style.. I don't do "cutesy".

What are your favourite design tools and what program/software do you use?

I use CC2015.  I love brushes and have a huge collection as well as some styles. I photograph some of my own elements to extract if I can get a decent photo.

What are a couple of your favourite designs or templates that you have created?  

Mmm well that would be my Grandma's Sewing Box... I photographed and extracted most of the elements in it... and I was really proud of how it turned out, then would be my Faeries In the Garden, as I always wanted to do a faerie kit. Lastly my most recent collection Tranquility.

Do you like to scrap as well as design?

Yes, but don't get to do as much as I would like.

Have you had any of your work published?

No

 Hi! My name is Linda Cumberland and I am the owner/designer of Linda Cumberland Designs. I design both Personal Use and Commercial Use digital scrapbooking products. I just recently joined the National Association of Digital Scrapbookers (NAODS) as one of their instructors and I am very excited for the opportunity to share some of my tips to designing creative layouts.

Read below to learn a little more about Me!

Where have you lived?
I was born in Ohio and lived most of my growing up years in Ohio, Indiana, and Michigan. My father was a pastor so we moved around quite a bit.  I attended college in Nyack, New York where I met my husband. We were married in Florida, moved to his home town in PA for a few years and then back to Florida where we lived for 27 years.  Hubby's job then took us to the Dallas/Ft Worth area of Texas and we lived there for 16 years.

Where do you live now?
This time last year we were busy packing and preparing to move to our new home here in Illinois. What a change for us! We live in a small rural town in southern Illinois. Our home is nestled in 6 acres of woods and we are loving all the deer and the many varieties of birds that visit our feeders daily. It was so fun to watch the fawns coming with their mom-mas to the deer feeders. They were so curious and playful. Definitely a treat for us to watch! We love it here!

Who is in your family?
My dear hubby and I will celebrate our 45th wedding anniversary in Feb of next year.  We are blessed with 3 wonderful sons and are doubly blessed with 2 lovely daughter-in-laws.  And of course, the blessings don't stop there - we have 5 gorgeous grand-children! They are truly the joy of our lives!
We also have 3 pets - 2 Labradors, Sunny and Stella - and Harley, our Miniature Schnauzer. They are as much a part of our family as any 3 pups could be!

I have had the privilege being a creative team member for Lexy and Barbara for some years now, and I never get sick of working with their designs.  They have a knack of selecting gorgeous colours that always coordinate perfectly, and as well as the more traditional papers and elements there are some nice 'arty' elements from which to choose.  I especially love their graffiti overlays.  Barbara and Lexy have been great supporters of Just Art and have in the past provided us with freebies to use in our challenges.  Well they have done it again for December 2016!  Be sure to check in the forum for a special Christmas mini.   Thank you ladies!    Robyn

Here's a little 'get to know you' from both Lexy and Barbara.

FROM LEXY............

LEXY

Where have you lived?

New York, New Jersey, Miami, Kentucky, second home in Spain

Where do you live now?

Beautiful Catskill Mountains of New York

Who is your family?

I’m currently engaged to Juan Carlos and I have one son who is engaged to a beautiful young lady. We share our home with 4 chinchilla persian cats who love to distract me!

Do you play a sport?

Not currently, but I used to in my younger days! I used to play tennis and softball.
