Welcome to Leaving a Legacy Designs! I am glad you are here!
Who am I? I am married to my high school sweetheart for 12 years and mother to two adorable little boys (4 and 9.5). I am a Christian, a work at home mom, a nurse (I do have two boys), a chauffeur, a scrapper, a friend, sister, and daughter.
I love being creative and teaching others to be creative as well. I started digital scrapping in March 2011 and designing in December 2011. I opened up my first store in April 2012. I started off as a paper scrapper and card maker working for an amazing company selling their products. I have taken the paper scrapping skills that I learned as well as paper punch art and transferred it onto my digital scrapping. A lot of my themed elements are done by hand and then scanned or I create them digitally in photoshop. It has been a crazy and fun ride. I mostly use Photoshop Creative Suite 6 and Illustrator to create my designs and paper patterns. I love learning new techniques and skills and am always looking to learn more.
What inspires me? My boys inspire a lot my designs, mostly because I am scrapping them. I also take a lot of inspiration from Pinterest, clothing and sometimes just random ideas that pop up. My mind is always churning with ideas. I have to keep a small notebook on me at all times for sketching out layout ideas or ideas for kits.
