Jennifer McGuire has quite the studio office that she has recently redesigned. WOW! Jennifer shows how she organizes her craft paper. While we're not always able to totally duplicate someone else's system(s), we may certainly pick up ideas and figure out how to make that idea work in your own space. I thought her system was well worth seeing . . .

This link will take you to Jennifer's blog posting and then click on the video; you might also look at some of the other photos of her studio. Caution:  drool bib might be in order!

Jacqueline Smith has created a beautiful accordion card for Elizabeth Craft Designs. And she has written an easy to follow set of instructions.

A member of the Memory Box Design Team is from France and she has a posting of a card that I think is beautifully simple.

I have a friend who is recovering from shoulder surgery. I made this card to send to her using stamps from Magenta and inks from IMAGINE Crafts/Tsukineko.

The colored pencils were fun to work with. As Susie has always said in classes at Art 'n Soul, the white colored pencil is always your mainstay 'must have' for highlighting and blending. If you don't have one, please come see us at the store.

Darsie Bruno is someone I've long admired and have followed her blog off and on. She is now a member of the IMAGINE Crafts Design Team, so I see a lot more of her beautiful creations. For her Altered Pages/IMAGINE Crafts' project, Darsie made this Victorian tag. I think it is stunning.
