Designs by Christi- Designer Introduction

Let's start with the basics:
Name: Christi
Username at Stuff to Scrap: Christilyn
Blog Address:

Now that you know which designer we're talking to, let's learn a little more about them and family comes first:

Husband: Yep, been married almost 7 years!
Kids: 2 little girls, my oldest is almost 4 and my youngest is 19 months.
Pets: None, we had 2 dogs before we had kids, but then quickly realized how much work dogs AND kids were so we gave them away to a nice family.

What do you like doing with your family?
We like to swim, watch movies, go quadding, and eat popcorn!

It's an alternate universe and your computer won't turn on for an entire week, what do you do with yourself?
It's funny that you ask- when I first became a designer at Stuff to Scrap my computer crashed and I couldn't get it fixed for 5 days! LONGEST 5 days of my life! I basically cleaned my house more and watched shows on my DVR.

Alright, the computer's all better - let's talk digi-scrapping for a few minutes.

When did you start designing and how did you learn?
I started designing almost a year ago, last September to be exact. I took a couple of classes online to learn things and then I taught myself. I also participated in the Designer Darling Contest and learned a TON from that as well.

What program/programs do you use to design?
I used to use Elements and LOVED it, but now I use Photoshop CS4 and love that even better!

Where do you get your inspiration?
I get it from lots of places- most of the time I get it from my kids' clothes.

How did you pick your digi-scrap name?
Well this is my 2nd name, lol! I just wanted to pick something simple.

What’s your favorite kit that you've designed?
It is actually my kit that I just released call "Inspire". I just love the colors and the elegance of the kit.

Alright, this is a hard one, but what's your least favorite?
Probably one of the first kits that I created- I didn't really know what I was doing! I'm not even going to show you pictures because I'm embarrassed!

Describe yourself in one word:

Share a secret with us, what's something that not everyone knows about you?
I LOVE to work out, next to digiscrapping and designing, I just LOVE it! I am a fitness instructor at a gym nearby where I live. I love it because I get paid to work out!

If I said you could go anywhere in the world on vacation, where would you go?
I have always wanted to travel to New York! That has been a dream of mine since I was little.

What is your favorite food?
Chips and homemade salsa. I could live off that. Oh and chocolate.

Do you collect anything?
Just digiscrap kits!

What is your favorite TV show?

I really love Glee, and right now it is So You Think You Can Dance, The Bachelorette, and I love anything on the TLC channel.

What is your favorite color?
Weird, but I really like black! I like wearing black shirts or black dresses, and I like adding black to my digiscrap kits! (Not that I'm goth or anything, I just like it!)

Alright, thanks for taking the time to introduce yourself and welcome to Stuff to Scrap!

I would love to pick up this kit before it expires but 4shared does nothing but load, load load and I never receive the download window. Is there anything you can do? I have been trying since yesterday. Thanks in advance!
