Announcing a New Designer: Gina Jones!

By Marisa Lerin Fri, 01/17/2020 - 22:05

I'm very excited to announce that we have a new designer joining the Pixel Scrapper team today! Gina has been an active member of our community for two years. You may have seen her moderating and creating posts in the Designer Challenges Forum, or you may have downloaded some of her lovely designs in the Commons. Today I'm very happy to have her join us as a full designer and I know she has a lot of lovely designs planned for the future that I can't wait to see.

Here's a little bio right from Gina:

My name is Gina and I am from Alabama. I am married with 3 adult children, nine grandchildren, and two Chinese Crested (hairless) dogs.

As a small child, I wanted to be an artist. I'd watch my dad draw, then try to copy his work. Art was life until I started college and decided to study nursing. Even with a career in the medical field, I found a way to include art in my work. I designed logos, brochures, stationary, report forms, etc., etc. If it could be printed, I designed it.

Eventually, I started editing photos and adding elements to them to share with family and friends. A short time later, I discovered digital scrap kits which simplified my life by allowing me to easily coordinate elements.

Fast forward, a few years ago, while googling "wire layer styles" I stumbled upon Pixel Scrapper. It was love at first sight! The Manifesto is in perfect harmony with my own personal beliefs so I became a subscriber and involved within the forum. Today, I am honored to become a design team member.

Today Gina has published several new and lovely kits that coordinate with the Good Life: January 2020 Bundle and this month's blog train. And I know there's more great stuff to come, so stay tuned!

Process Video #63: Travelers Notebook

For this spread I’m using the Good Life: September 2019 Collection. The video begins with me taping down the papers I’ve chosen to use as my background. The title page on the right is from the Journal Me Kit, which prints out just as you see it, ready to use in your notebook. I back my two photos with some papers from the collection and then do some layering with some more papers from my stash. I finish off the spread using some of the elements from the collection as well.
