I’m so excited to have Jen Allyson as our featured designer this month! She’s a party-and-a-half and always knows how to make sure everyone has a good time. Oh – and her designs are pretty stellar, too.. 😉 Take a minute to get to know her better..
Tell us a little about yourself..
I’m a mom of 2 little boys, Oliver 3, and Leo 1. We live in Highland Utah. In addition to digital scrapbook design, I also design paper scrapbooking supplies for My Mind’s Eye, and quilting fabric designs for Riley Blake Designs. In my spare time, I love to travel with my husband, and enjoy my kids while they are still so little.
What inspires you the most as you design?
Current trends, beautiful colors, everything at Target
What’s your favorite product you’ve designed?
I make a big list of everything I need to do and want to do, and do all the things I want to do first. Once I get going, I’m great at working on everything, but if I need to do something boring first, I never get started.
When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
An artist, and a teacher. I’m an artist, and I get to teach my kids.
Describe your perfect day.
Sleeping in, playing with my boys, drawing, and designing, a nice dinner out, and a movie at home.
What is your greatest reward as a designer?
I love getting to know people who like my designs. I loved owning a shop and the feeling of comradely amongst all the designers and the design team.
If you could travel anywhere, where would it be?
I’d love to see Alaska, and Germany.
If you want to get to know Jen even better and get a free kit from her, join us this Saturday in American Fork at Digi Night Out. Tickets are HERE and a sneak peek of the kit you’ll be receiving is HERE.
See you soon!
