I’m so excited to introduce you to this month’s Featured Designer, Molly Scraps! Her designs are fresh, funny, and so full of personality (much like the designer herself). Let’s get to know her a little bit better.
How long have you been designing and can you tell us about how and when you started designing?
I have been entering design contests for 3 years but I got my first store in November 2012. I used to make sig tags about the time digital scrap kits were being used so I eventually moved into doing layouts.
Where did you come up with your design name? What does it mean?
Mollyscraps was my forum name originally and described what I did. Now as my design name it acts as a noun too.
Where do you live? Have you ever lived anywhere interesting?
I have lived in Indiana most of my life but I did spend a few years in Nashville, TN and for one summer lived at Cedar Point Amusement Park.
What is your newest kit?
My newest kit is Melemele Poni; that’s Hawai’ian for Yellow and Purple. I had a gorgeous yellow and purple palette in my stash and I wanted to do something that was not a theme kit. I am really happy with it. I have also recently collaborated with 13 other designers to do a charity kit benefiting the Animal Protection League after they became involved with a nationally publicized farm animal abuse case here in Indiana. With a $10 donation at http://www.inapl.org you receive the kit free. You can find out more on my blog: http://mollyscraps4you.blogspot.com/
Where would you go if you were given a trip in a time machine?
This question really stumped me. I finally figured out that I would go back to my 9th grade Biology class. I would stick to it and get over the creepiness of dissections. It was because of this class I gave up on my dream to be a marine biologist. My life would be quite different if I had followed through with that.
What’s the best tip you could pass along to your fans?
Love fully and cook nice!
What is one of your favorite movie quotes, and what movie is it from?
"The King’s stinking son fired me. And thank you so much for bringing up such a painful subject. While you’re at it, why don’t you give me a nice paper cut and poor lemon juice on it? We’re closed!" From the Princess Bride… so many good ones…
Is there anything else you would like to share with your fans?
My store is 30% off in May and look for a surprise special Memorial Weekend!
Thank you, Molly, for taking time to answer these questions for our fans to get to know you better! Now let’s take a look at your newest kit, Melemele Poni.
