On Monday I introduced you to the entire ND2021 Mentor Line-up, today I will give you a closer look at ND2021 Mentor Tracey: Tracey B Designs

Just about four years ago a wonderful layout artist reached out & asked if I would consider her as a Designer. I’d known Tracey for several years because her layouts are truly stellar. She has an amazing eye for composition, color and dimensions. Of course I said yes! I’ve found many layout artists make excellent Designers precisely because they know exactly what scrappers are looking for in a kit or collection.

The jump from layout artist to Designer is a big one. There is a huge learning curve to get things technically right. Everything running the gamut from size, jagged edges, stray pixels, file naming, to well, gamut itself. Tracey tackled the mountain of things to learn, and plunged head-first into designing. Her eye for color has been a fabulous assest to her work. Anytime I see something new, happy, colorful & floral passing by in our New Releases, I know it’s Tracey. Her work is a joy to behold and scraps like a dream.

Tracey will make an absolutely wonderful Mentor to anyone lucky enough to get her. She knows, from the ground up, just what it takes to design a succesful collection. Just as her work is warm & inviting, so is Tracey. Even her criticism will make you smile.

Tracey has just released the incredible new Sunkissed, part of her introductory sale this week. Stop by her store at the Studio this week to save 30% Off!
