You see, I've been a professional graphic designer since 1996 when I graduated from college with a graphic design and psychology degree. I worked in corporate in-house marketing departments for the first 5 years of my career, quickly becoming a Creative Director for a large housewares company. Once I had my daughter, I started freelancing, working primarily on brand development projects for small companies ranging from wineries and skin care companies to gourmet pet snacks.
But my heart and soul wasn't completely in it. It wasn't until I discovered my passion for scrapbooking, card making and the craft and hobby industry as a whole, that I really loved designing again.
Last fall and winter I was working with Lily Bee Design on a collection that never came to fruition because of the tragedy that took place in our town. And after many months off, Kristen contacted me and wanted me to design a new collection for Lily Bee Design again. I was thrilled on a whole new level! The result of that phone call is this, my very first (mini) collection, that I designed and created, called Urban Autumn, for Lily Bee Design!
The collection includes 6 double-sided papers, 36 double-sided 3x4" insert style/journaling cards (72 unique designs in all!), a 4x6" stamp set, wood veneer embellishments and a set of 6 flair embellishments! Here's a look at the entire collection! :)
I hope you like what you see! I personally can't wait to start working on my autumn projects with this collection! And I have it on good authority that you'll be seeing some very talented ladies work with this collection in the not-too-distant future!
But until then, I'm giving away an entire collection of Urban Autumn to one lucky winner! Just leave me a comment here on my lil' ole blog and I'll pick a winner on Monday, October 7th!
Have a super, wonderful day! ;D
