Paula’s scrapping style can be summed up with one word: FUN. Incorporated into this description, you will find loads of ephemera, retro galore, stunning watercolors, bright bold colors, all with a touch of vintage artistry. Paula is also a contributor to the wildly creative Mixed Media Monthly kits. You can visit her store HERE. I asked Paula a few questions to get to know her a little better. Tell us about yourself. My name is Paula and I live in Brazil – São Paulo. I’ve been married to Ricardo for 23 years now. I have two girls-Isabella and Gabriella and two dogs-Nero and Stella. Last December both Ricardo and I got Covid. He was admitted to the hospital and stayed there for 15 days until Dec 31st when he was able to return home!!! My brother-in-law was not so lucky and died of Covid in early January. It impacted me so much that it was difficult to create kits and collections again because I was so sad and weak. I had no energy or the will to do anything. Thanks to God, my happiness has returned as well as my desire to work!!! That's why I haven’t released many new things lately. How long have you been designing? OMG...for so long that it's hard to remember! LOL! I’ve been designing since 2011 when I began selling my stuff at ScrapArtist Store, but I’d been working with Photoshop for a long time before that, since 1995. How do you come up with your color palette or theme for your kits? First I choose a theme; then I research about it and look for palette ideas on Pinterest or Google! What are your go-to snacks or music while designing? I love apple juice so I always have a box on my table! We have such a fast-paced environment during the day that I don't have the habit of listening to music while I'm working. Show us a few of your favorite products. The READ ALL DAY LONG collection! That's the one that I used to make my favorite page! See the related GIFT today!! What is the favorite page that you have scrapped? That's a hard question! I think this one: In addition to all her kits, Paula has SIX BRAND NEW KITs, with 50%OFF discount for you today!!!! Here is a page I made combining four of them (image is linked). I had fun playing with Paula’s Purrfect Love Kit. Here are some layouts with Paula Kesselring’s products. Now it's your turn to make a page with some of Paula Kesselring’s products. Explore her STORE and discover all the amazing products there! And it even gets better; Paula will have a random drawing from the completed layouts. Three winners will receive a $5 coupon from Paula. Note: your layout must be completed by 12:00 Midnight, March 2nd to be eligible for the $5.00 coupons. Please make sure you meet the gallery guidelines of 50% TLP product. Post in Paula’s Gallery and also share your page in this thread. Be sure to check out our LOVE Our Designers event daily since you never know WHO is going to be featured when! And who knows, the designer(s) may pop in here and there with special surprises and interactions while we are scrapping!!!
