My name is Fran and I live in Indiana with my husband and son, who is 13. We’ve travelled to Disney about 12 times since he’s been born. I love designing and creating new things and playing with color. I have been selling my designs since November 2011. I currently sell at Scraps N Pieces and My Memories.

Q. How would you describe your design style?
Cute, paper style, cheerful, colorful.

Q. What is the meaning behind your design name?
It’s my name. B is the first letter of my last name. When I started doing blog freebies, I considered different design names, but I always put FranB on my files, so I went with it!

Q. Do you have a favourite tip or strategy for the parks?
We like to bring cereal/bagels/poptarts to eat in our room before we head out for the day. We buy milk from the gift shop and have cheap breakfasts each day! And when we go home, we have extra room for souvenirs!

Q. Which character would you say you are you most like?
Mickey. Hey pal!

9 days until “A Magical Fairy-Tale” | Designer Reveal – Polka Dot Chicks

Only 9 days until “A Magical Fairy-Tale”. Today we are welcoming back Tammy and Shelby of the Polka Dot Chicks! So lets get to know them a little better and read all the way until the end for a little peek at their beautiful sampler freebie!


MMT_PolkaDotChicks_Spotlight

MMT_DFBanner_Intro

Hi!  My name is Tammy and my daughter Shelby and I are the Polka Dot Chicks!  We have been doing this since 2008 when we started with just a blog and freebies….We live in Kansas City, Missouri and while Shelby lives on her own and works FT and is pursuing her photography career, she still offers ideas and feedback.  I also enjoy reading and cross-stitching and spending time with my kids & family.  My oldest son, 28, Andy is a music teacher in a local middle school; My youngest son, 26, Matt works for a luxury apt. complex and recently moved to Chicago, IL with his husband of 3 years; My youngest, Shelby, is 22 and works also for a luxury apt complex and also has a photography business in Kansas City – ShelbyB Photography.  So my hubby and I are empty nesters and love to travel as well.

MMT_DFBanner_Inter

Q. What is the meaning behind your design name?
Well when we started out in 2008 we were the Queen and the Princess and that was great but we had a few digital stores that really some unethical behaviour to it’s designers and one in particular took advantage of us financially as well and well we got discouraged and almost hung up our hat. We took some time off and decided to not give up and regroup and recharge, we decided to re-brand ourselves.  I love Polka Dots and Shelby suggested ‘Chicks’ as we are CHICKS!  LOL and well it stuck and a success!
Q. What is your favorite part of the design process?
This is going to sound so bizarre, but I love the making of the previews.  To me they are an extension of the kit and like little pages of art.  I find it very relaxing to make previews.

Q. Who is your favorite character?

Mine is Eeyore and Shelby’s used to be Tigger…not sure she has a particular favorite at the moment….

 Q. How many times have you visited a Disney Park?
Twice.  Disneyland when I was 5 and DisneyWorld on my honeymoon with my 2nd husband (1999) AND a Disney Cruise on the Magic in 2012 with Matt and Shelby.  IT was a blast.  I highly recommend the Disney Cruises.

MMT_DFBanner_Inter

Q. How long have you been designing?
I have been an artist for most of my life, having attended college to be an art teacher. I’ve been designing digitally since 2006 and I started seriously designing scrapbook supplies in 2010.

Q. Where do you find your design inspiration?
Anywhere and everywhere… A color combination, a pattern, a song, a single photograph.  The list goes on and on.

Q. What about designing do you love the most?
I enjoy the challenge of creating… to have an idea in my head and find a way to make it come to life…

Q. Who is your favorite character?
TINKERBELL!

Q. Why do you love Disney?
I have loved Disney since I was a little girl… One of the first places I really remember going with my parents was Disneyland and the first movie I ever saw in a theatre was Sleeping Beauty. My love of Disney was rekindled in college when I took a class on animation and I was hooked. I took my boyfriend (now my husband…) to see Lady & the Tramp when it was playing at the local theatre. He had a great appreciation for it because he saw first hand how my effort, skill and artistry goes into creating animation.  A few years later I took him to see Beauty & the Beast and now I had him hooked.
