Hello, it's Jen again. We have another interview with another wonderful designer. Without further ado, Kami Leonard of Ziggle Designs!
What's your name and digiscrap blog address?
Kami Leonard, Ziggle Designs
Tell us a little about your family.
My husband and I have been married for 15 years and we have one beautiful daughter named Zoe.
What other hobbies do you have besides scrapping and designing?
I enjoy photography and I am an avid reader!! I love curling up with a good book!!
When did you start Digi-scrapping and who taught you?
I started digi-scrapping in 2005 and I taught myself!
When did you start designing and how did you learn?
I started designing in 2007 and I taught myself!! LOL!!
How did you pick your companies name?
The Ziggle comes from my photography business (Ziggle Photography). And Ziggle comes from my daughter's initials (ZGL).
Who are your favorite three designers?
WOW! This is tough. Only 3- huh? I don't know if I could narrow it down to 3. I mean, it goes without saying ALL of the Scrap Orchard Designers, right? The most recent designers that I have purchased kits from are: Jofia, Brigit Kerr and Newlife Dreams.
What are your favorite parts of a kit to design?
It really depends on the kit, but it is usually the spark that inspired me. It could be an element or paper, but whatever it is that is driving the kit.
What's your favorite kit that you've designed?
I love Firefly Lane right now. It was SO MUCH FUN to design.
What's your least favorite?
Um.... probably all of my older stuff!!
How do you get started on a kit? Palette first? Rough idea on what you want your papers or elements to look like?
Each kit is different. Mostly the palette comes after I have an idea, but I have found palettes that I just love and gone from there. Usually it's some new technique or idea that I have that I want to try out. I love the challenge of figuring out how I would do something.
How long does it typically take you to make a kit?
6 to 8 hours
If you could change one thing about yourself what would it be?
Um... digital scrapbooking related or just in general? In general... I'd like my "backside" to be considerably smaller. Digital Scrapbooking-wise, I wish I could draw better!
What is the one word that best describes you?
oh... it really depends on the day!
Who is the most important person in your life?
What is something that not many people know about you?
I am 5 feet tall.
If you could travel anywhere where would you go?
Well this is assuming I had some serious drugs to help me get past my extreme fear of flying (another thing people might not know about me!), I would love to go to Greece.
When you were little what did you dream of being when you grew up?
What is your favorite food?
All of them (thus the larger-than-I-would-prefer "backside")
What do you like doing with your family?
Where is your favorite place to be?
What are three things that are important to you?
Is there anything you would change about your life?
Not for a second.
What are you afraid of?
Dying (all kinds of different things... but they all end in death, so I'd have to say overall... just dying)
Do you collect anything?
Dust- my house is a veritable dust museum.
Kami it was great getting to know more about you. I will second your dust collection. Hardwood floors + dogs = unspeakable amounts of dust.
Here are three of my favorite Ziggle Kits
Sunny Side Up
And here is Kami's current favorite, Firefly Lane (I LOVE the papers in this kit! and such a wonderful palette!)
