Hi there! I’m Amanda, designer and owner of A-Manda Creation. I am so excited to be joining the Dating Divas as one of their graphic designers! I have long been a fan of their fantastic printables and now that I get to create some of them I couldn’t be more thrilled! I have always been extremely creative and crafty, but after the birth of my first son in 2006 I fell in love with scrapbooking. It wasn’t long before I got tired of the mess everywhere and found digital scrapbooking. Once I started doing that I was completely hooked. I was creating all sorts of fun things and printing them out. A few years later I decided to start designing my own scrap kits and in 2011 I opened my store www.amandacreation.com.
I have a HUGE passion for throwing fun themed birthday parties. My boys have had so many parties over the years. Between the 3 of them we have had 16 parties and not one of them has had a repeated party theme! I love coordinating every last detail of their parties. It wasn’t until a few friends started having me create printables for their parties that I thought about selling them. So in 2013 I brought printables into the mix along with my scrap kits.
I love finding fun reasons to celebrate. I try to make everything a little extra special. Kids grow up so fast and I am already seeing how quickly time goes as my almost 10 year is starting to think he is too cool for things. So I make the most of it and we throw “parties” for silly reasons in our house. We celebrate half birthdays where the special person gets to use the 1/2 birthday placemat and plate. I go all out for holidays with themed tablecloths, plates and fun treats enhanced with printables. The kids teachers always get cute and clever gifts for teacher appreciation week. And classmates and friends are always getting the coolest valentines and end of the year treats from my kids too. My motto is, if it can be enhanced by a printable, then it should be!
My most favorite thing about what I do is bringing my customers visions to life. I love things that are out of the ordinary and can’t be found in stores. So when they come to me with their ideas for printables I just love making them happen for them. I have designed some seriously fun items the past few years. My customers have the best ideas! I can create anything! All I need is a bit of a description from you and what you need then let me loose and you won’t be disappointed. Some fun items I have created: special themed birthday parties, when you can’t find exactly what you want at the party store I can make it, custom wedding invitations, birthday chalkboard posters, tooth fairy stationary to match tooth fairy pillows that were purchased, retirement gifts, teacher appreciation gifts, programs for school plays and weddings, logos, business promotional items, photo props and even tshirt designs. The possibilities are endless and I LOVE that. I love custom orders.
I use my own scrap kits that I have designed to create printables. It adds to the uniqueness of them. Sometimes I am inspired by a scrap kit to make a party set and sometimes I make a party set and turn it into a scrap kit! Just this summer I decided to split my 2 businesses apart. I felt that digital scrapbooking kits and printables really appeal to 2 seperate audiences. So I did a complete overhaul on my store and now I exclusively sell my printables there. You can still find my scrap kits around the web. My home store is The Digital Scrapbooking Studio. I have over 140 scrap kits to choose from and over 1800 coordinating pieces as well! If you have never tried digital scrapbooking I will warn you it’s addicting!
