Feature Friday | France M. Designs

 

Happy Feature Friday! Today you get the opportunity to get to know France Meunier, also known as France M. Designs! I’ve had the chance to get to know France over the past few months, and not only is she an amazing, kind, and generous person… she is an incredibly talented designer. Her products are whimsical, unique, and charming… with a perfect mix of traditional paper-style designs and graphic elements. Her kits include amazing word art (because who doesn’t just LOVE word art?!), realistic flowers, traditional flat elements (perfect for those paper-style or pocket-style layouts), and versatile stamps that are perfectly-crafted.

This is just a small sampling of the inspiring product offerings you’ll find in her store here at The Digital Press…

 

We asked France some questions about her life outside of the crafting world so we can get to know her even better! Here’s what she had to say…

Where do you live?
I live near Lyon, in France. With my future husband and our 2 girls.

When you’re not designing, what do you do with your time?
First and foremost, I’m a mother… so I spend most of my time with them. The grandparents are near us, so we are often with them on the weekends. I bake, a lot… macaroons, meringues, rainbow cakes, and a lot of other cakes are my passion (I intend to create my own business to sell them). I love watching TV shows and movies, listening to music, and reading a good book. And of course, I love taking pictures and scrapping… but I don’t seem to have much time to scrap!

What are 5 tidbits of trivia we might not know about you?
— Often, I do not wear the same socks!
— When I was young, I didn’t like my name. France is the name of my country too… but now, I love it!
— I met my man at work. We worked in a sports shop, and you know what? I don’t like sports!! haha!
— I love red nails
— I’m still a little girl… I love watching cartoons with my girls… Especially Disney or Pixar cartoons.

Which of your products is your favorite?
I should say, “the one I am working on!” But — I really like Awakening

 

Now that you know more about Franny, check out her products in action (and see how versatile her products are)! You don’t have to scrap in a particular ‘style’ to love her products. They are perfect for paper-style layouts, graphic layouts, and pocket-style pages alike…

 

Now that I have you drooling over all of this loveliness, your next step is to go over and take advantage of the 30% OFF SALE IN HER STORE throughout this week. I mean, you just cannot lose here… beautiful, unique products to inspire your creativity — and at a great discount, this week only (sale will end at 11:59pm ET on Thurs 6/23).

Feature Friday | Little Lamm & Co.

 

Today, I am excited to kick off a brand new blog series here at TDP! Each Friday, we will be featuring one of our awesomely-talented designers… helping you get to know each of them a little bit better… and also giving you a chance to enjoy a 1-week-only sale in each of their shops!

This week, we’ll be featuring the designs of Amie of Little Lamm & Co.  Amie creates digital products that have a distinct pocket-scrapping style and feel. She creates custom designs that you can print yourself at home, if you’re interested in “going hybrid” and ending up with physical cards and other products. You’ll find lots of flat stickers and brushes/stamps in her kits, mixed with digital versions of the types of dimensional items you tend to find used on traditional paper scrapbook layouts. Additionally, she creates some great photo templates for not useful to pocket scrappers, but for the everyday “traditional” scrapbooker, as well.

It was tough to narrow down, but here are just a few of my favorite products by Amie…

 

Meanwhile, let’s get to know Amie a little better! We asked her to answer a few questions so we could learn more about her…

Where do you live?
Fargo, ND and Vergas, MN

When you’re not designing, what do you do with your time?
Trying to keep up with a 4 year old, reading, cooking, and cleaning up after my 2 cats and hubby.

What are 5 tidbits of trivia we might not know about you?
— no bag of dill pickle potato chips is safe around me
— I once won a log throwing competition
— I have psoriatic arthrits and in 2008, I was bedridden and couldn’t even go to the bathroom by myself most days
— Justin Timberlake once complimented me on my singing and I had no idea who he was
— I went to Woodstock ’99. The one with the riots. I did not participate. LOL

Which of your products is your favorite?
It’s a hard choice, but I love Blink
