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.

 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!

Our featured designer this week is Dagi's Temp-tations. You can find Dagi's wonderful templates at her GingerScraps store HERE.

 I asked Dagi to tell us a little about herself............

Who is in your family? My husband, two little boys aged 8 and 1 and two dogs.

Do you play any sport? No, I am not much in sports really, but I do like to walk. 

What is your favorite book? Hard to pick only one.. I love Harry Potter series and I am a huge fan of Stephen King so any book from him.

Do you have any hobbies besides scrapbooking? I do like to read, cook and bake and I also like gardening.

Do you have another job/career other than designing? I am a social worker. Currently at home with the little one.

How did you start in digital scapbooking? I met a group of wonderful ladies (online) back in 2008 when my son was born and they introduced me to digital scrapbooking. I will always be grateful as this is the best hobby I ever had.

How long have you been designing? I've started designing in 2012. I had to take hiatus couple times due to work though.

How much time per week do you devote to designing? It varies really. I try to design in the evenings as this is the only me time and quiet time I have.

Where do you find your inspiration? In everyday life, sometimes it's the photos I'd like to scrap with, my wonderful creative team members have great ideas too and I am open to any suggestions from the customers too!

What are a couple of your favorite designs or templates that you have created? I love the Splendid Blended series a lot, also my signature templates and I am working on a series now that I realy like!

Do you like to scrap as well as design? Yes, I do not scrap as much as I'd like, but I do!
