December Advent Day Eleven: Get to Know Anita Designs

Anita of Anita DesignsThis month, in recognition of our site’s opening, we’ve decided to combine December Advent with a fun “Get to Know Our Designers” event. Each day, you’ll get a chance to learn about one of the amazing members of our Design Team.

It’s Day Eleven, and today you get to learn more about Anita of Anita Designs. She’s got a clean and simple design style that we know you will love, and her products are known for their delicate elements and cheerful color palettes.



  1. I am a real coffee addict; I can’t imagine having a day without coffee!
  2. I love thinking of pranks to joke around the house; examples: I hide at the toilet or under the door window, to scare my hubby or kids when they are coming home * I called up my aunt and told her in a conversation, that you can get insurance for your pet, at the KLM (dutch flying business) * When my son was outside of the house hanging with friends, I took the shower head and opened up the window and made them wet! * I pranked my uncle with a fake police parking ticket and fined him for square parking. 🙂
  3. I love Egyptian-style belly dancing and all roller coasters!
  4. I wanna see the world; I love traveling… Venice, Vienna, Sicily, London, Paris… I wanna see more.
  5. I dislike the autocorrect thing in my iPhone, because in a conversation with Karla about being sick and feeling sick, I wrote something like, “coughing up germs out of my mouth” …and it autocorrected to “sperms come out of my mouth.” I felt embarrassed but Karla nearly peed her pants laughing!


  1. Food: McDonald’s is a FAVE! Wake me up and tell me we are going to McDonalds, and we have a date! And anything pasta-related.
  2. Dessert: chocolate mousse.
  3. Movies/TV shows: Twilight, Armageddon, Titanic, Bruce Almighty, Vampire Diaries, Charmed, and Grey’s Anatomy.
  4. Sports: soccer, belly dancing, and tennis.
  5. Actor: I am a fan of George Clooney, Robin Williams, Ben Affleck, Bruce Willis, and Whoopi Goldberg.


That would be my recent Gilded Grab Bag (a collaboration with Karla Dudley).

    Are we twins? Love the auto-correct story. Hate auto-correct. LOVE coffee. A day without coffee is like a day without………………. coffee.

    I’m another coffee addict! I don’t have auto-correct on my phone, but hubby does, it’s hilarious sometimes. I’d love to win your Busy Hands, Happy Hearts kit. thanks so much for the chance!

  4. Chloe says:

    I can feel your pain about the autocorrect, especially when your phone is set up for another language (French in my case) than the one you’re trying to use. I love Anita’s clean look and beautiful colors palettes!

  5. sue_will says:

    Yes Gilded is my current fave – loving it for my December daily album! Also love seaside serenity, the calm colours work a treat on lots of pages.

  6. Kiana says:

    I agree with autocorrect. That’s a lot of pranks!!!!!!

    I love Anita’s designs, so picking one is hard…..but right now I’d love to have Seven Days

  8. meggersjm says:

    I just love your daily routine collection- great for filling in without a big theme! Plus it would look beautiful in the baby books for my sons! Thanks for the chance to win, and the laughs this morn.

    Can you turn that auto feature off ??????
    Worth the laugh though 🙂
    I too love my coffee 🙂
    Wish you and yours all the best this Holiday Season 🙂

    I fell in love with Natural as soon as I saw it and bought it straight away! I think Seaside Serenity or Secret Garden are my next favourites, so to win either of them would be wonderful! I love the clean, graphic lines and colours in Anita Designs kits.
