Hello everyone, and welcome to another edition of our designer feature series on The Digital Press blog in 2019 — Friday Favorites! This year, as you know, we’ve been learning a bit more about each of our amazingly talented designers by having them share some of their favorite things with us each week.
This time, to learn even more about Rachel, we asked her to share some of her favorite things with us, and here’s what she had to say…
“My favorites things? Well it’s hard for me to point on a few because i have a long list, but here are few of them:
1. Music Music Music! I can’t imagine my life without music, all the time music is playing in my apartment. I love all kinds of music from classic music to gothic music and, as you know from my previous designer feature, I’m a huge fan of Depeche Mode — they are my number 1 band. I also love Placebo and a Norwegian band Apoptygma Berzerk. Every summer I love to travel to Germany with my friends to see concerts of Apoptygma Berzerk and other fabulous bands at gothic music festivals, like Cologne (Amphi festival) and Hildesheim (Mera Luna festival). Every festival is full of great music, vibes, costumes, food & drinks. (It’s been a while since my last time but still remain my favourite). When Depeche Mode and Placebo go on tour, I love to see their concerts abroad so I travel a lot. I’ve seen them in Amsterdam, Barcelona, Madrid, Paris, Romania and the list goes on!
2. I love to scrap digital and hybrid layouts especially for special occasions. After I’m finished, I print them in an album and give it as a part of the gift.
3. Besides loving to design digital papers and stuff I also love painting on canvas. I never know what i’m going to draw — I just go with the flow of the paint and my emotions.
4. I love to going to the beach like every Israeli person. The summer is already here in Israel and most of the year we have hot and sunny days (we just had a few days of 40 degrees). I love to walk near the water or just sitting on the sand and meditating to the sound of the waves. But most of all I love sitting (alone or with friends) on the sand with glass of wine or a beer and watching the sunset.”
Rachel’s shop is filled with the most gorgeous goodies. She regularly designs monthly collections in stunning colour schemes, and she doesn’t forget about the scrappers who prefer pocket or travel journal style pages, as well (you’ll find heaps of cards especially for them in her shop). Her products always include unique elements and stunning papers — any scrapper’s dream!
Here is just a small selection of what you’ll find in her shop…
