View Full Version : The Choice: Jen C Designs

09-11-2011, 02:00 AM
Welcome to Round II of Master Designer at theStudio! This month features Jen, Jen C Designs (http://www.jen-c-designs.com/), against her choice of Three of theStudio's Top Designers. Today Jen must choose her competitor. Who will it be?

Angel - Angel Hartline Designs (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/store/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=13_229)
<OBJECT id=ieooui classid=clsid:38481807-CA0E-42D2-BF39-B33AF135CC4D></OBJECT><STYLE>st1\:* { BEHAVIOR: url(#ieooui)}</STYLE>My creative life exists somewhere between the clouds and this crazy place around me I affectionately call Angeltown. I work from my home just north of Dallas as a freelance graphic artist & love spending my days with my family and close friends. I create artwork, websites, marketing materials and develop new products for customers in the craft, scrapbooking and home decor industries.

I am hopelessly addicted to and inspired by all things that tell the stories our lives and the world around us; books, music and film, history, art, crafting and scrapbooking. Awake or asleep you will nearly always find me listening to music, a movie or an audiobook while I create and live my own life.

Somehow I find time for crafting, designing, reading, nerdfighting, music & my sweetest calico kitty, Monkey Love. I have a real passion for digital, hybrid and altered crafting. Not much makes me happier than creating something beautiful from various bits and pieces!

Christine Mortimer - Digilicious Designs (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/store/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=13_236)
I am married and the proud mum to 2 gorgeous young boys (4 & 2) who seem to never run out of energy! We live in a bayside suburb on the outskirts of Brisbane, Australia. Although I am an Aussie through & through, I was born in Canada, have dual citizen and will always hold a special place in my heart for the country.

I am a very keen amateur photographer and purchased my first DSLR (Canon EOS 7D) almost a year ago. I take hundreds of photos, mostly of my boys, but I also love Macro Photography. I plan on joining a Camera Club in the near future, when I'm a bit more confident!

I have been Scrapbooking the traditional way (paper) for about 10 years, although I've probably been doing it in one form or another all my life. My design style is very much influenced by this. I have been using Photoshop for years and made the leap into Digital Scrapbooking in 2006. I still enjoy both forms of scrapbooking, however, most of my time is devoted to digital these days. I also love gardening, cooking, the great outdoors and curling up with a good book.

I am unashamedly and hopelessly addicted to Scrapbooking, and particularly digital scrapbooking. The variety, uniqueness, the Community and friendships forged, will keep my passion alive for many years to come!

Sherah - SKrapper Digitals (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/store/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=13_186)
I live on a mountain top farm in the hills of WV.
I'm a digiscrap designer, mother to a fun loving little girl and wife to my dear husband. I first found digital scrapbooking when while pregnant with my daughter and looking for a way to create her baby book. Once I stumbled across digital scrapbooking (and then creating digital scrapbooking supplies) I was completely hooked! :XX

This is truly my favorite creative outlet, it incorporates elements of so many of my other hobbies and interests: interior decorating,crafting, sewing,flower arranging, photography, and graphic design, as well as being completely mess free! :((

Other than designing I love, cooking (baking! :XX), reading, helping DH on construction projects and spending time with my little one.

Oh gosh ... I'm been agonizing over this decision all morning ... it is so hard to choose - all three of the designers I have to choose from are wonderfully talented and I admire them all!

After a great deal of debate, I am going to go with ... Christine - Digilicious Designs ... I hope she'll say yes! :) Our journey from paper to digital sounds very similar - and she's a dual citizen Aussie/Canadian - I'm Canadian through and through - though I have (very) recently emigrated to the UK! (just this week - lol!)

I am so thrilled and honoured to be a part of this - now to find out what the challenge will be - I'm nervous!

09-11-2011, 04:04 PM
wow - great challenge this month. Best wishes to both of you.

09-11-2011, 04:33 PM
Oh - I've never heard of a challenge like this one. Best of luck to all.
I'll be viewing, as I'm curious.
