New Layout + Scrapper Crush

One of my scrap crushes is Cathy Zielske. Her style is very graphic-designer with clean type and lined-up-everything but there’s also some room for play. She also got into card making at the exact same moment as I did (close enough) so I’m sure we would be fast friends in real life. Here is a […]

Layout: Who Are You? and 2014 PL #40

The other day I was reading a new post on the Scotty Girl Designs blog and was really moved by her willingness to talk about her struggles with depression. I’m not sure if it was sympathy, admiration or a connection but I was drawn to creating a page using her kits. I suppose the melancholy […]
