December Advent Day Twelve: Get to Know Amanda Yi

Amanda YiThis 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 Twelve, and today you get to learn more about Amanda Yi. She’s got a bold and graphic design style that we know you will love, and her products are known for their bright colors and the fun mix of dimensional elements they always include.



  1. I am a college student majoring in Sociology with a concentration in Criminology and minoring in Psychology. I am attracted to deviance! LOL
  2. I refuse to drink iced coffee without a straw!
  3. I make To-Do Lists on a daily basis… sometimes more than once a day…
  4. I am a young single mom.
  5. I have an impulsive tendency…


  1. Dessert: anything chocolate!
  2. TV Show: The Walking Dead… duh 🙂
  3. Movie: Forrest Gump rocks my socks.
  4. Place to Travel: New Hampshire (I don’t go to many places LOL).
  5. Time of the Day: BED TIME!


Go Places — I don’t travel much, but when I do I love to take it all in. Being in a new, unfamiliar place intrigues me. The color palette I worked with made the thought of travel even more intriguing!

    I haven’t had any coffee since I was pregnant with my second and that was two years ago, though I am a tea drinker…I couldn’t imagine life without caffeine!

    I’m still chuckling over “favorite time of day: bedtime”! Never would have thought of that answer, but there are days it’s so so true!

  8. Wendy says:

    I was a psych major in college, and I loved this one criminal justice psych class that I took (can’t remember the exact name)!

    I enjoy your Days of December collab, especially the brushes/stamps!

    College student, single mom and beautiful designer! You are amazing, Amanda. I don’t know how you do it. Watching the Walking Dead helps, I’m sure. Best. Show. Ever. 🙂 Um, if I could choose, I would definitely ask for the ENTIRE 2014 This Month Collection. It’s amazing!

    I also drink anything cold with a straw; iced coffee every morning! & chocolate for dessert; yes! All of Amanda’s kits are lovely, but I’m in the Christmas mood — I’d love to have This Month: December. Love the word arts & the touch of gold in the kit!
