Guest On Spotlight: Designer Priscilla Ashley, formerly of Beautifully Blessed Designs

Hi, everyone!

I'm introducing another Graphic Designer on Creo by Lady Katutz' Guests On Spotlight.

My very 2nd Guest on Spotlight is my former Designer Prissy from Beautifully Blessed Designs.

I've worked with Prissy for 6 months from April to September 2014.  I worked mainly as her Creative Team Lead. From producing or creating digital scrapbook layouts to blog write-ups for the digital scrapbook store we are housed in, to co-managing Beautifully Blessed Designs Creative Team with Prissy, it was fun stint to be with BBD.  It is indeed, my very 1st TEAM LEAD post with a Graphic Designer.

I would never forget creating project life pages with her kits for my project life album in 2014.  I would also never forget marketing BBD's kit with blog write-ups both at my blog and Scrappy Bee's blog as both BBD's Team Lead and Scrappy Bee's Worker Bee.  

She's a very accomodating Graphic Designer and boss to work with and I love her mini kits.  She gave me another bird's eye view of behind the scenes of managing a creative team and not just staying in the role as one of her creative team members who creates layouts.  Her digital kits are in bold but happy colors and are characteristically fun to work with in reds and other rich, bright colors.

Prissy of BBD became my official a sponsor of  3 to almost about 4 months worth of Project Life layouts for my 2014 PL DIY Album.  Hopefully, I could finish my 2014 album by going back to my 2014 photos to scrap in a Project Life way.

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.

9 Short Questions and 1 Wrap-It Question:

1.  I would like to know your complete / full name and what you do.

Priscilla Ashley

2.  How did you get started in your craft?

I started digital scrapbooking after I became a "target" at CafeMom. I tagged for about 2 years before I realized I liked making layouts more. 

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

Yes, I love knitting, crocheting, do it yourself projects, and couponing (I consider it a craft to be able to save 90% on everyday household necessities).

4.  Do you have hidden crafts that you like and enjoy by yourself?

No, I'm pretty open about the things I enjoy.

5.  Amongst your crafts, which one did struck gold and became your main stint?  How did it help you?

Of all my crafts, I'd have to say couponing. It has helped my family save an outstanding amount of money that I can now put toward my other passions.

6.  How many years have you been dealing with your craft?  Or with each of your crafts?

I've been in the digital scrapbooking world for approximately 4 years, crocheting for 11 years, couponing for 6 months, and I taught myself how to knit about 8 months ago.

7.  What is your main motivation or inspiration for indulging with your craft?

For couponing, that would be the sales and awesome coupons. Also, I love being able to help my husband stretch a paycheck. For knitting and crocheting, I'd have to say the hope of helping people have a warm blanket, hat, or socks motivates me to continue doing it. As for digital scrapbooking, all the photos I take of my boys are a great motivator for me.

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

Five years ago, I didn't know where life would take me. I had no idea I would develop so many new skills and talents. At this point (5 years later), I've learned tagging, digital scrapbooking, freebie creation, met many new people online, and learned how to coupon. Five years from now, I hope to have a small business for my knitting and crochet work, finish at least 1 scrapbook, and have a huge stockpile.

9.  What are your major breakthroughs and milestones in relation to your craft or in the industry you are with?

A major breakthrough for me would be to finish an entire large afghan in either knit or crochet, finish a scrapbook or print a page for scrapbooking (I've never been able to do that), and to start stockpiling more expensive laundry detergent.

10.  Describe yourself and your craft in one short phrase, word or sentence.

My crafts help me make it through life. Aside from my firm belief in God, my wonderful husband and kids, crafting keeps me sane.
