LOVE Our Designers - March 6 Paula Kesselring Is Our Daily Crush! Welcome to the 2023 edition of Love Our Designers (LOD) This event isn't a traditional CHALLENGE in that there aren't any real rules. It's just...Scrap with the featured designer! It’s a fun event to just scrap with products from a fave designer or try a new (to you) designer. It’s all about having fun and celebrating the uniqueness of all of our Lilypad Designers!

Eons ago at the beginning of digital scrapbooking, I was on the CT at Scrap Artist when Paula started selling her goodies there. I remember being so impressed with how cool, unique and artsy her designs were! And to this day when I'm thinking of a new layout idea, there are so many times that I just know Paula is going to have the exact fun element that I need to illustrate my ideas! We have lots of fun in store for you today! There's a fun interview, A CT call, a freebie and an amazing sale! Check it all out below! Interview with Paula: 1. Can you show us a picture of where the magic of designing happens? Are you a laptop girl or desktop user? Here is the other side view and my 3 "assistants"...LOL Nero - Yorkshire - 7 years, Stella - French Bulldog - 5 years and my new baby Joaquim - French Bulldog - 60 days today! I work from home. Here's my "office". I have a new iMac. I used to be a Windows girl for more than 24 years, so it was very difficult to me to adapt to a Mac... But now I just adore it! I never work on laptops... I also work on my iPad to make brushes and some sketches, doodles and drawings. I know you must be wondering: "but everything is so organized...", yes! I have OCD and "prefer" to have my office organized, so I have all my material, like brushes, ephemera, paints, etc... in drawers, boxes and in the cupboards next to my computer. I use them and keep everything immediately organized and cleaned! 2. Where do you find all of your fabulous ephemera items? I had a huge collection of them! I always love flea markets, there are constantly new vendors popping up at the spots I frequent, and meanwhile, returning vendors are always showing up with new offerings. By becoming a regular at these markets, I'm less disappointed if there are days that I go home empty handed. If I've had sufficient luck at particular market in the past, I know that there's still hope down the line. After all, most flea markets, even the absolute best ones, are generally hit or miss! Also my mom was a travel tickets collector, so I have memorabilia from her trips, from my trips, old family books and old map and sheet music books to play! 3. What is your favorite thing you do to treat yourself? I love to be quiet and watch K-Dramas without any interference! 4. How long have you been designing? Ohhh, I paper scrapped for years and years. In May of 2006 I got into digital scrapbooking and have loved it since. I started scrapbooking for so long that I can’t remember, I was a traditional scrapper until 2005 when I discovered the digital! I’m designing since 2011, when I start so sell my stuff at the amazing Scrap Artist Store, but I’d been working with Photoshop for a long time before that, since 1995. 5. Where do you generally draw inspiration from for your kits? Customer suggestions, ads on TV or online, Pinterest or do you make kits that you would use for yourself? I think from Pinterest, and kits that I would use, but sometimes what I think will be a huge success because I just love all the content, doesn't sell as well as other content that I'm not so passionate about... 6. Do you find time to create your own layouts on top of designing? NOOOO! But I'm trying since this last MOC! And I must confess that I miss scrapping so much! CT Call - Join Paula's Team!
