DESIGN TEAM CALL


Hello there,

Store and blog are finally up and running.  I am looking for my first DT.  YEAP! a nice group of self motivated artist to help me spread the word and at the same time have fun coloring and creating with my designs.  I can't offer payment, but you will have access to my digis and cut files while you are part of my DT.

It is very small store still, with not more than 30 images available, but the plan is to add 6+ images per week.  

If you want to be part of the DT:
All I need you to do is add a button in your blog (will be provided upon confirmation)
Invite people to follow.
Twitter, facebook, pinterest and blog about my store in any social media you participate.
I am looking to have a team of 7 artist and we will have a challenge every other week.  

This is going to be a stress free environment and I know (believe me I do) that life gets on the way, and for me, family is more important than anything else,  if you can't make it, I won't get upset nor give you a hard time {wink}.

With all that being said, visit my store and follow the blog.

My store is: www.skdigis.com
My play blog is: www.skdigis.blogspot.com (still adding some final touches)

Please add your name in the link below, guiding me to your blog.  I will select the designers on July 30 and announce them publicly on August 6 after getting all confirmed and set up.   Will give the list of challenges way ahead of time so you can work on them at ease.  Our first challenge will be posted on September 3 and every Monday from then on.

CLEANING AND ORGANIZING FOR BETTER TIME MANAGEMENT

I personally think that having an organized clean space is a great way to comply with my time management.  The easier I find the things I need to complete a project, the fastest I can finish.
Yesterday I re-arranged my studio and purged all my supply drawers.  Man! they where full of stuff I didn't even remember I had.  I called my friend Aixa and told her I had a box FULL of scraps, that I know, for a fact, that I will not use ever again.  She is picking it up on Monday hopefully, if not, I will give it to my son's school art teacher, I know she will find a great use for all those pieces of cardstock paper.  I will give you a tour of my office/studio, which I share with my love... We use to have separate offices at home, but spending a great deal of our day in the computer, we realize is better for us to be together and share what we are doing. 

My Desk
Ok, this is my desk, and I just added yesterday the shelve on top to display my cards.   It was a little bit higher and not I have to cover the 3 holes on top, but is it is up already.   I have my Silhouette Cameo and Cricut,  my Wacom Bamboo Tablet, and an additional mouse... just because I only use the  tablet with the pen... for everything else, I use my Logitech mouse, and of course, I have my Cricut mouse pad.   In the first drawer I keep my camera, my label maker, my agenda and of course a nail file.  On my second drawer I have the only Cricut cartridges I own... from 102 plus 5 on the Gypsy, I got down to 8 minus the Gypsy... YEAP! sold them all.  I kept my Expression and bought all the Best of collection from 2006 till 2010.  I have got Car Decals with my rewards (cause it is my favorite) and Cake Everyday Sampler (cause it has flowers and swirls and many cute cuts to embellish cards).  The bottom drawer has all my personal files.  In the door to the left I have 6 drawers with Photo Paper, Georgia Pacific acid free cardstock, Becket Radiance, felt in all colors , foam in all colors and chipboard.

My Scrappy side of the room.
My Nestabilities
It is a party table
Ribbon, Buttons and Flowers
I loe everything at hands reach.
This is the other wall with all my scrap-stuff.  All I have is here.  I do not have as much as i use to, cause I sold a lot of stuff.  The drawers are marked just in case I am having a crazy day and don't remember where things are.  Now, I leave you with some close ups.

My Cuttlebug Drawers
Plates - LOTS of plates
Embossing Folders
Cutting Dies
Little Flowers
Prismacolors
Stickles and Liquid Pearls
Metal and Clear embellishments
Cutting Tools, Cropodile, Scor-Pal and ATG gun

My Copic Ciao Markers
Sakura, Letraset, At You Spica and some other Copic Markers
Fiskars Punches
Martha Stewart Punches
Threads
Rhinestones and Pearls
Twine and Liquid Embellishers
Buttons and More Flowers
Hope you like the tour of my office/scraproom, but before I leave, here is my partner for life.  He got the messy corner... lol, but at least we are together...YAY!
I love this guy!

OH! and lets see how long this room stays this clean...lol

Road Trip 2012 - Title designed & cut with Silhouette Cameo

Hello everyone, how is life treating you?  I have been pampering myself lately and feel better than ever.  Today I had time to design the title for the road trip with Illustrator and Silhouette Studio...  It took me a while to pick the font I wanted but I love the results.  Cool! right?  It was easy as 123...  :)



Hola a todas, ¿cómo las tráta la vida? A mi muy bien, me he estado consintiendo un poco ultimamente y me siento mejor que nunca. Hoy he tenido tiempo para diseñar el título para el álbum de el viaje por carretera usando Illustrator y Silhouette Studio ... Me tomó un poco de tiempo escoger el tipo de letra que quería, pero me encanta el resultado. Super! ¿cierto? Fué tan fácil como 123 ... :)

Enjoy and have a wonderful day!
