TEN years ago I was working full-time as a freelance graphic designer. It was a job I’d had for nearly 13 years working with various corporate clients. And I loved scrapbooking! Nearly every evening I pulled out all my rubber stamps, inks and stickers and scrapbooked memories of days of Kelly’s childhood. Scrapbooking was such a favorite thing to do that I had to move all my scrapbook supplies out of my home office so I’d focus on my clients more. That didn’t work. Extremely proficient in photoshop and illustrator, I started creating my pages digitally. We had a website, Tootahs, selling mother’s bracelets and it was going well. So I asked my husband if he could set us up to sell downloads on there. He went one better and made me a new site… and DesignerDigitals was born!
Just two months later I decided to put all my focus on DesignerDigitals making it my full time job!
Within 18 months it became my husband’s full time job too! A dream come true!
The scrapbook industry has been through a lot of ups and downs over these tens years and DesignerDigitals has survived it all!
Back in the day of Scrapbooks Etc., Simple Scrapbooks and Creating Keepsakes Magazines you could flip through the pages and always see credits to DesignerDigitals. It was awesome! We thrived!
And I’ve been lucky as a designer in the industry too! Just three months after launching DesignerDigitals, I started designing for Autumn Leaves. Dozens of clear stamps and a few Foofala Collections and lots of other projects under my belt before their parent company, Creativity, closed their doors. And since then I’ve also designed scrapbook products for Bo Bunny, Pink Paislee, My Minds Eye, TrimCraft and Our Memories for Life.
It’s been an amazing TEN years! And here’s to the next TEN!
