Another project has launched last month with another new client!
This time photo albums and journals! 

I love the hot pink ribbon.

 you can not tell from the photo but the paper around the edge is silver - nice touch I think!

drum roll please....

I will have a booth at SURTEX!  I finally decided to do it! After years of clients and friends in the industry encouraging me to participate, I finally decided this is the year! SURTEX is the tradeshow to sell and license art and design. It is the ideal show for me and this year seems like the right time to just DO IT! Over the next few months, I will be designing my booth, creating new collections and designing marketing material.  All the while, creating artwork for my NY rep and reaching out to current clients to grow my business with them.  It is going to be a crazy couple of months! But I am ready!

new year - new designs with Society6

New year, new designs.  I cleaned up my Society6 page on January 1. I deleted most of the designs.  "Why?", you ask?  I like the idea of limited edition. So, this year I will be doing the same.  Every few months I will be deleting designs.  I will be adding new designs every 2 weeks (more often when there is a special request).  So, if you like a it now:)

Yes, I take special requests! Do you see a design on my website or on another one of my designs (scrapbook paper for example) and you want it on an iphone or laptop cover? Email me what you want and I will see what I can do.  The three designs below were requests I had at CHA. All three of these are also on scrapbook paper!  What do you think?

GCD Studio at CHA

I am back form CHA! A whirlwind of a weekend! I am exhausted and full of inspiration!! I met a few fans:), some fantastic editors and a ton of wonderful friendly customers! I was so proud to be working in this booth! The theme of the booth was "Tea Party". Tea cups and plates, candies and flowers decorated the booth!  I kept thinking in my head, "I'm late, I'm late, for a very important date!"

My Nostalgia wall!
I love getting to the show and seeing what the scrapbook and card
designers have created with my designs! They are so creative!

Charleston - This collection seems to get the most attention.
People loved the pink with the warm grey and yellow.

Nostalgia fabric collection available at Joann's!

It has been a little while since my last fabric collection. I changed manufacturers and have been busy designing new collections for David Textiles.  The new team is fantastic and I am really excited to tell you that now my fabric is available at Joann's! AND for all my Australian fans (and there seems to many) you can find my fabric at Spotlight! I am so excited about this!!

So, let me introduce you to my first collection with David Textiles called "Nostalgia"! Sounds a bit familiar, right?  A few weeks ago I told you about a scrapbooking collection that launched with GCD Studio under the same name.  Some of the patterns are the same and it is really cool to see them translate on two different materials - paper and fabric.  I believe with scrapbooking paper, your photos should stand out more than the paper.  So, I made the papers a bit softer.  With the fabric however, I wanted them to be bold and bright.  I am really excited about this and happy tell you all of this in stores NOW!
