    Besides the standard gallery requirements, there aren't any crazy rules to follow beyond simply scrapping with our featured designer for the day!!
    Today we are dressing up our layouts with style, with FiddleDeeDee Designs!​

    * In case you've been living under a rock or just don't know the wonderful Cheryl of FiddleDeeDee Designs, I asked her to tell us a little about herself & how she got into digital scrapbooking & template design, as well as a few other questions.
    "Hey y'all! My name is Cheryl. I live in Northwest Florida on the Gulf Coast. My husband is Jay and we have two children, Olivia and Daniel. This is all of us together :
    [​IMG]
    I started paper scrapbooking in 1996 when I was pregnant with my daughter Olivia. I ended up switching to digital scrapbooking after I read a tutorial about doing a circular photo collage in PSE. I ordered PSE, followed the tutorial and was hooked. The tutorial ended up leading me to some digital scrapbooking websites that I started exploring. I started making digital layouts in August 2007. I started converting my layouts to templates and opened my first store in February 2010. I've been at The Lilypad since 2015 and I absolutely love it!"

    * So I'm sure you get asked this a lot, but remind me again - why are you known as gonewiththewind and FiddleDeeDee Designs?
    All around, from personal scrapping to digital designing, I’m all about Scarlett and Gone With The Wind! Here is a page I made that explains all about it! Just click on it to be taken to the gallery and see the whole story!

    *I always love your pages & seeing you move things around and your start to finish process in your Watch Cheryl Scrap youtube videos. Do all of your templates start out as your own layouts?
    Most of them do, but not all of them! Sometimes I get requests from customers or friends or CT members and I try to fulfill them.

    *You are so skilled at clustering but it's so great that you have dressed up and dressed down packs for each of your templates. Do you usually make the Dressed Up version first and cringe a bit as you pull stuff off for the Dressed Down version?! (Or maybe it varies and sometimes you make the Dressed Down version first?)
    I always make the Dressed Up version first. And you are so right! I cringe as I pull off piece after piece. Sometimes I'm more brutal than at other times. It really depends on whether I feel pulling too much off will mess up the composition.

    Well your gallery is gorgeous & always inspiring (Cheryl's gallery is here! It's total eye-candy!).
    Thanks Cheryl!

    _____________________________________________________________
    If you know me, you already know I'm quite a template addict. A blank canvas in Photoshop is just too daunting and scary to me. Templates give me confidence and a place to start and I have been using FDD templates for years. I struggle to cluster more than 3 things together without her element guides! The shadows are awesome as well and from 1 photo to multi-photo, I'm always amazed at how many unique designs and arrangements Cheryl can come up with!

    Here's a new page I made for today using one of the Label Everything {Dressed Down} templates . Sometimes the elements and colours on the template are pretty much perfect so for that peachy pink layered flower on the right, I just clipped a glittery paper to it with a blend mode to give it an icy texture & recoloured a few labels - too easy really!
    [​IMG]
    Here's a few other pages I've made with Cheryl's templates recently:

    Oh and you really have to make sure you check out Cheryl's Monthly Designer Challenge too.
    Her Facebook fan group votes for which layouts they want to see turned into freebies. How cool is that!
    (Not part of that group yet? Check it out here https://www.facebook.com/groups/FiddleDeeDeeFans/learning_content/)
    This is the layout that inspired this month's freebie template

    And this is the current freebie template for March 2020!

    My page for the March challenge is in that thread already! So what are you waiting for?!

    With not being able to spend money in the store I used a template I already owned.

    Templates to me are such a versatile investment, because with all the rotation & flipping, both vertical & horizontal, possibilities, there's sooo much more than 4 layout designs per pack... & yep, it's a heck of a sale!!

    I did this page a couple of days ago. Love Cheryl's templates for when I need some cluster-y goodness, and watching her scrap is great too as I always learn some new tip or trick.
