Guest On Spotlight: Designer Ania of Sunshine Inspired Designs

Hi, everyone!

I'm introducing something new to Creo by Lady Katutz.

I'm having my very 1st Guest On Spotlight where I feature Designers and Artists I've worked with for all the years I've been an Artist, Scrapbooker & Cardmaker.

I love every Designer I've worked with and I would like very much for all of you to get a glimpse of who they are and get to know them as well.

My very 1st Guest on Spotlight is my Designer Ania from Sunshine Inspired Designs.

I've worked with Ania for 7 months since January 2015.  I worked mainly as her Creative Writer. From product kit write-ups to blog write-ups, these were fun to do together with Ania.  I would never forget writing weekly tips for her too on her Sunshine Inspired Designs blog which paved the way for Creo by Lady Katutz own Monthly Design Tips too for scrapbookers and designers alike.

She's a very nurturing Graphic Designer and boss to work with and I love her designs so much.  Her digital kit collections are characteristically fun, happy to sometimes retro and I just love working with and writing for all of her kits.

And she became officially a sponsor of some of my card designs that I have printed into postcards.  Hopefully, to become crossstitch patterns too for Creo by Lady Katutz (CBLK).

Below are the prepared questions and her corresponding answers to each:  
I hope you get to know her thru this post of mine about her.

2.  How did you get started in your craft?

Few years back my husband and I decided to travel indefinitely. At that time I was a paper scrapbooker and I knew I couldn't take my scrapbooking stash with me on the road. It inspired me to start playing with digital scrapbooking. I fell in love with it and started designing myself right away. 

3.  Where there previous or other arts and crafts that you delved with or are currently enjoying?

My main inspiration is our everyday life. I believe that everything that happens in our lives is worth documenting and sharing with others.

8.  Five years before, where were you in your craft?  Five years from now, what do you envision for your craft?

Well Five years ago I didn't even think about doing digital scrapbooking, and now I can't imagine my life without it. In five years I see myself to grow and expand my skills to other fields in graphic design.
