Gallery Spotlight!

I was roaming through the gallery this morning and this gorgeous layout by Pantherka caught my eye.  I love the soft feel of it and the circles that run down the center of the page.  I also love the treatment of the photo — stunning work!  And the kit that was used for the layout is also gorgeous…Vanilla and Mocha by Angel Designs.

March 2015 Featured Designer: Designs by Romajo

This month we turn our spotlight onto one of our newer designers: Designs by Romajo!  I have to tell you that I just love this lady!  She is one of the friendliest, kindest, gentle spirits that I have had the pleasure of getting to know in my time in digiland and when she gave into the designing bug I was thrilled!  Today you’re going to have the opportunity to get to know the person behind the designs but I can only scratch the surface. Come hang out in our forums for a little while and I bet you’ll soon be on TEAM Romajo!

FeatDesMarchklein


Let’s get to know our Featured Designer a little better!

What’s your real name if different from your designer name?
My real name is Marieke, which is an old Dutch name. It is pronounced like Marie (one of the Aristocats), with ‘ke’ behind it.

What’s the meaning of your designer’s name and how did you come up with it?
Actually, I am the Ma part in ‘Romajo’. I am married to Robert (for 1 years this April) and we have a daughter named Joline. When she was born, we were looking for a name for a website (which doesn’t exist anymore) and we came up with Romajo. Ever since it’s the name I have been using around in digiland and when I started with designing, I used it as my designer name as well.

How long have you been designing?
I think it was in the summer of 2011 when with a couple of online friends we thought we might stretch our skills and do a bloghop. As soon as I might my first freebie, I was hooked on designing as well. In April 2012 I opened my own little shop. At the end of 2013 I got some design lessons from Lisa Rosa and a year later I was asked to join With Love Studio as a designer as well. By that time I had become from CT-member to CL-manager as well, all here at that lovely place.

Tell us a little bit about you, your family and your daily life.
As said, I am married to Robert and we have 1 daughter Joline (she’ll turn 11 in July). We also have a dog, Tommie the Kooikerdog (a Dutch breed formerly used to decay ducks) and a cat, Floor.

We live in a little town in the centre of the Netherlands, near Utrecht. It was up to here the Romans have been. And also the Vikings have been here (they even burned the place).

I use to help during lunchtime at Joline’s school and also help with other things (like reading and art class).

I also love to go to dance class, both a sort aerobic/Zumba class as Ballroom and Latin Dancing. I use to do that with Robert (we even met at a dancing school, 21 years ago). Besides our own class every other week we help with those just beginning with dancing (1st and 2nd grade).

Do you have another job/career other than designing?
I used to work as a telephonist/receptionist at an Allergy Centre. Two years ago I lost that job and ever since I am home. I hope to have a job soon, mostly to have my own money and also to meet other people, being myself instead of only ‘wife’ and ‘mother’.

How many hours a day or week do you dedicate to designing, and how long does it usually take to complete a kit?
Because I have the time, most time of the day you can find me behind my laptop. I will be designing or scrapping. Or chatting at WLS!

It depends on the kit, the colors, my mojo, the theme, the time I have, well, on so many things how long it takes me to have a kit ready. I have kits that are done in 1 or 2 days (like the packs I made for the Lovely Colors for March), but it might take up to a week to have things finished as well. It also depends on if you count only the kit (for me alpha, elements and papers) or also the add-ons (extra alphas, extra paper packs, extra element packs).

What are you favorite design tools and what computer/software/programs do you use?
I only have PhotoShop CS5. And I think I know only half of what can be done with that program. I love to use layer styles and actions. They can save so much time!

Do you have a method you like to follow when designing?
Normally I start with either the colors or the theme (sometimes both are given). When I have theme (title) I have a look for the palette I want to use. Sometimes I ask Joline to help me out with that.

I normally start with making the solid papers, followed by the patterned papers, the alpha and the elements. I think the elements mostly take most of the time. If I have add-ons, I start with them when the kit is done.

Tell us about your featured kit, where did you find inspiration for it?
My featured kit is called ‘March Of The Celts’. Fifteen years ago I lived in Ireland for a little more than 7.5 months (I was an au pair). Ever since I have a soft spot for everything Irish.

On March 17 it is St. Patrick’s Day in Ireland (and everywhere the Irish live), the National Holiday of Ireland. So my featured kit is useful for that. But March is also the start of spring (on the Northern Hemisphere), so it can be used for that as well.

I went looking for a song that I could use as my title (I love to use music as my inspiration) and came across the song by Enya: March Of The Celts. I thought it was perfect (although I don’t like the music/song itself). March both referring to the month as to music, Celts referring to the Irish and their Celtic roots.

Besides the kit, I made 9 add-ons. And everything is available as a bundle as well.

What can we expect to see on your store on the next weeks? Are you already working on some new releases?
I already told that I just finished my packs for the Lovely Colors. When I opened my shop here at WLS, I closed my personal shop I used to have. But there are still kits that I want to re-release. This month there are 2 re-releases coming out. One of them has a ‘free with purchase’ offer coming along when releasing.

Tell us about your featured designer’s month, sales, promotions, gifts…

My complete shop is 40% off, except for the new releases. They are 50% off!

I also have some freebies: 2 here at WLS, 1 on my blog, 1 on my Facebook and 1 in my newsletter. They all coordinate with my featured kit.

Do you like challenges? If so, join me in the Lovely Hostess challenge. And on March 17 I’ll be hosting a St. Patrick’s Day Speed Scrap.

And I am planning on doing some more as well, like a give-away and maybe some coupons.


Thanks for the awesome interview Mareike!  I have always wondered if I was pronouncing your name right in my head and I’m pretty close I think.  Maybe one of these days I’ll get to hear you say it in person or at least in a live chat!

Are all of you ready to see Designs by Romajo’s Featured kit? It’s like a breath of fresh air!  MotC-Romajo-preview
