Tell us a little about yourself: My name is Laura Burger and I design under the name “ Designs By Laura Burger”. Just to tell you a little about myself (because I know you all lay awake nights wondering about it, lol), I am a 50-something YOUNG woman who is married to a wonderfully supportive husband. We live in a small town in Northern Arizona and we both have grown children from previous marriages, so we are a great blended family. We had our first Grandchild 3 years ago and he has been the joy of our weekends when we get to spend some time with him. We have recently been adopted by one wild turkey,Lucy.
Well first off a was a paper scrapper for almost 10 years before I got the bug. As for my designing… it was purely unexpected. Eight years ago I applied for a designer position at a site and I haven’t looked back since. I love designing and being creative, so this became the perfect job for me to do in my off hours when I am not running our regular home business. It keeps me creative, and has allowed me many opportunities to meet other designers and grow friendships. I am self-taught in Photoshop and am still trying to get the hang of Illustrator. I use PSCS5 for 75% of all my designing. As for inspiration… it varies from product to product, but I love nature type colors, vintage fabrics, bold paintings and my own photography. I always try to design with photos I have in mind or a concept of a layout I would like to get done.
