Interview with Ocean Wide Designs + Freebie!!!!

Who's ready for a new interview?! I am I am!
Not only is it another great interview, but the freebie ROCKS!
Don't forget to swing by her blog HERE for updates, freebies and more!

1. What got you started in the digi scrap world?
I got started digiscrap when I was in college and doing some freelance website and graphic design work. A customer pointed me in the direction of a digiscrap freebies page to show me what type of style of banner she wanted. After poking around and getting to know more about what digiscrapping is... I got hooked!

2. Which kit, that you've done, is your current "Fabu"?
Hmmm, right now it has to be Thoughts of Spring. I just absolutely love those colors and all of the LOs my CT has been making with them!

3. What is the one thing you can always count on to inspire you to create?
Everything. I keep an inspiration folder for myself, where I put pictures I find online to go through when I'm in a funk and need something to get me started. I also have a great husband and friends who share ideas with me wether I want them or not!!
4. If you could be a color, what would it be and why?
Yellow - it's always bright and cheerful. Even yellows with low saturation and light still seem cheerful!
5. If you could do a collab with one person, who would you choose?
That's really hard to say. I totally would love to collab with Ashalee Wall, because she astonishes me with her ability to work with only two colors - and often only one saturation of a color. Her pattern work also boggles my mind!

6. Do you like to start with the elements, alphas or papers first?
I usually always start with the papers. I've been doing all of my own patterns lately, and the papers usually define the tone of the rest of my kit.

7. What is your goal in the digi world for 2011?
My goal is to gain a larger following and make enough sales to cover my student loan payments and have some more "fun money" for my husband and I to go on out of town trips more often. I've already been surprised that I'm able to cover my student loan payments... so I guess I need to add more to my goal??

8. Who is your scrappin Idol?
It has to be Flergs, aka Megs, at Scrapbook Graphics. Megs is one designer who's been around for a long time... but is still the sweetest person in the world. She also manages to continue putting out products that are fresh and inspired, and never "cookie cutter" like.

I've been looking forward to that read allllll month!! I hope you all enjoyed it and enjoy this awesome freebie she made for you! Swing by next month for another interview!!!
