Hello my crafty friends!

Where do I start? During the month of January, it felt like we worked around the clock. Getting everything perfect for CHA was our main focus and when set-up day came we worked even harder. Once every paper and flower was in place, we talked to new and old friends, sold a lot of scrappy goods, and did a ton of

We had so many cute details throughout the booth, but those paper lanterns were fabulous!

returning DT Gals We would like to welcome back these three talented ladies to our 2013 Design Team.

I

am delighted to be spending another year with GCD Studios! This year's collections are beautiful, trendy, and incredibly inspiring. I can't wait to get into the craft room

ello everyone, my name is Nina Yang. I was a "Fresh Face" newbie for the Card Girl team last year and have learned a lot about designing, crafting, and

getting published during the term. From last March to January this year, I had 40+ projects picked up for publications. I loved that the assignments were given to us very early and we could pick our own assignments. Heidi is amazing in predicting trends and letting us work ahead in front of the wave. I enjoyed every one of my assignments and can't wait to play with the new trendy collections. Check out Nina's blog at www.waffleflower.com

I

am so excited and honored to be returning for another year on the GCD Studios Design Team. The collections this year are so fantastic, and I am looking forward to working

with the new embellishments and Chip Art tools, too!! Check out Audrey's blog at audreysreflection.blogspot.com

Keeping Valentine's Day in mind, we created this delightful little clipboard covered in scrapbook supplies and yarn. Why a clipboard? They have been popping up all over Pinterest and while searching for inspiration I came across this photo. Not only do they help you stay organized, but the look of them all clustered together on a wall is to die for. The color pink is everywhere and to give it a twist we used a bright neon pink, orange and gray. Adding a touch a wood here and there, completes the look with texture. So the next time you pull colors for Valentine's Day, try something bright and fresh like this.
