The With Love Studio Designer Spotlight has turned to shine on PrettyJu Designs this month! Fun designs await you in the PrettyJu store and you can check them out this month for 50% off!
So who is the wonderful person behind all this adorableness? Let’s get to know her a little bit better!
What’s your real name if different from your designer name?
What’s the meaning of your designer’s name and how did you come up with it?
I choose this name because a friend of mine always called me like this. PrettyJu come from “Julie jolie” which in english means pretty Julie…
How long have you been designing?
I officially starting designing since 2009.
Tell us a little bit about you, your family and your daily life.
I’m 41 with a heart of 20 years-old. I’m from Québec, Canada and I speak french. I love life and all that it gets to me. I’m so much loved by an awesome man which has my 1st love when I was 17. Life separated us during 20 years then, get us back together again since some years. Unfortunately I don’t have children, but my love has four. I love to be busy! But when I have free time, I make fractal art, reading and drawing. I love cooking and trying new recipes, especially chicken and mini breads.
Do you have another job/career other than designing?
I ‘m educator for persons who have intellectual disability, for 19 years now and I love this!
How many hours a day or week do you dedicate to designing, and how long does it usually take to complete a kit?
I generally spend 1 or 2 hours by day, five day per week for designing. When I’m very motivated and inspired, a kit can take approximately 12-15 hours. But most of the time it take me some days, some weeks and yes some kits are never finished!
What are you favorite design tools and what computer/software/programs do you use?
I work using my laptop and a very big screen plugged on it. So I don’t have to put my glasses for designing… I’m totally crazy about fonts and dingbats, I have so much!! For designing, I use my pretty old Paint Shop Pro 9 !!! I know, there are very better software for designing, but, what can I say? I’m comfortable with it!
Do you have a method you like to follow when designing?
I’m generally hit by a theme and then, I’m looking for a palette matching this idea. I always begin by designing papers at first. I put them on the preview template to see how they look, and then I create the elements. I layered each element when it finished to see how it looks with papers and others elements. Then, I made some pages to see if something is missing. At last, I make the alpha(s).
Tell us about your featured kit, where did you find inspiration for it?
A person with intellectual disability with which I work, always ask me “where is the train?” and often talk to me about baby mice. So I put both together and I came with this kit.
What can we expect to see in your store over the next few weeks? Are you already working on some new releases?
I’m always working on something. Most of the time I work on 2-3 kits at the same time. I currently working on a kit I will probably name “Smile to life”; it’s a kit about happiness and good things of life. In the same time I began a kit about hockey and an other about “ouchies”……
Tell us about your featured designer’s month, sales, promotions, gifts…
I will have to you a 50% sale on all my products in store for the whole month, and freebie for you on my blog.
Thanks for taking time to talk to us, Julie!
