April 28, 2014



I am excited to be here for a few reasons. 
1) I don't usually get to post on Monday's
2) I get to share a fantabulous guest designer post with you! 

Our April Guest Designer is Jeannie : Dragonfly Journeys

Fresh Brewed Designs Digital Stamp: Coffee, Cupcake, and Confetti

Here is a little more information about this beautiful lady:

1)How and where did you hear about Fresh Brewed Designs?

I heard about Fresh Brewed through Sweet Sketch Wednesday where we were on the Design Team together for awhile.
You had me at Coffee!!

2)How long have you been paper crafting? 

I've been paper crafting since about 2001 or so.  I started out scrapbooking back then.  I switched to cardmaking a few years later, and started my blog in 2007.

3) Are there any tips you have learned along the way that you would like

to share with our readers?  

The only tip I can give is to check out YouTube Tutorials if you are stuck trying to do something and can't figure it out.  There are so many talented people on there.

4) What are your GO TO colors when creating your projects? 

I tend to lean towards many shades of green for some reason.  It's not my favorite color, but I do use it quite a bit to accent another color I'm working with.

5) What is your favorite card making technique? 

My favorite cardmaking technique of the last couple of months is edge distressing!  I don't think I've made a card without it in quite some time.

6) Tell us a little about yourself and what gets your creative mojo brewing

I find inspiration everywhere, and between traveling around blog-land, and Pinterest, and seeing all of the talent out there that's what gets my mojo going.  I've been crafting since I was 8, when my Grandma taught me how to crochet.  Not with yarn, but the tiny crochet thread.  She had me crocheting around hankies for her.  I still have the metal hooks she gave me, and I use them to create flowers for my cards.  I can't thank her enough for teaching me how important expressing myself creativity is good for the soul!
