Let's Meet a Designer: Scrappy Cocoa's Stephanie!





What is your name and your Digi-scrap blog address? ScrappyCocoa scrappycocoa.blogspot.com
Tell us a little bit about your family. I have been married to my hubs Tim for almost 5 years. We have a little boy who will be 2 on July 4th!
What other hobbies do you have besides designing and scrapping? I like to read, cook and knit.
How did you get started designing and scrapping? I got sick of the mess of paper crafting. It felt like it would take a week to make a page and then a week to fully clean up. I love that I can take my hobby any where with absolutely no clean up!
How long have you been designing? about 8 months
Which programs do you use to design? PS CS4 and Illustrator (kinda, still learning the ropes)
Do you draw most of your items with a mouse, hand draw and scan, or do you use your camera? My Camera sucks! Saving for a dslr, but I scan a lot of things.
Where does your inspiration usually come from? Fashion Magazines, Ikea, Pottery Barn and the Land Of Nod (le sigh I heart the Land of Nod)
How did you pick your design name? Not really sure, hubs helped me out though!
Who are your favorite three designers? Gingerscraps(really I adored the organic feel of her kits before I made the CT), Piggyscraps (she is very unique and I love it), Vicki A Work in Progress
What is your favorite part of a kit to design? It is different every kit. I like to do papers, but lately I have been loving alphas!
What is the weirdest thing you have used as a texture? does my Yoga mat count? (Totally!)
What is your favorite kit that you have designed? Probably Garage Band King, although it's a tough choice!

What is your least favorite? Probably my first
How do you get started on a kit? Palette first? Rough idea on what you want your papers or elements to look like? Rough Idea first. I have the HARDEST time picking colors!
How long does it typically take you to make a kit? A week or two. Mainly because I don't work non stop. And I usually do more than one at a time.
If you could change one thing about yourself what would it be? I wish I was taller. I am a mere 5'2. I'd love to be about 5'6. Or be buff :)
What is the one word that best describes you? well, it depends on my mood. Nice or Sassy
Who is the most important person in your life? My hubby Tim
What is something that not many people know about you? I am a long distance runner. Training for a marathon right now. I love my Sat morning 10 mile runs!
If you could travel anywhere where would you go? Some place tropical with lots of sand, water, and SUN!
When you were little what did you dream of being when you grew up? A nurse, and I was a CNA for a little while, but couldn't go to school at the same time as hubby.
What do you like doing with your family? We love being out side. We go hiking on the weekends.Where is your favorite place to be? Snuggled up on the couch in PJ's with either my hubby, baby or lap top!
Edward or Jacob? Please. Edward! Would Jen have let me write other wise!!! (I totally would have, but I also would have mocked your decision. ;) )
CU or do it your self? 75% ish is me. I try not to use too much CU freebies because everyone has them, but some CU stuff is just too cute!

and here is another one of Steph's awesome kits, Favorite Things.

*Note*

*Some freebies only last for 1 day... and depending on your time zone by the time you get here you might only have a short time to download. If you like something get it ASAP! You just never know some freebies last a long time and some expire very quickly. If you get to a page and the freebie is not there most likely it has expired.*
