June Challenge - Week 4 Designs

This has been a very rewarding week. I made my June challenge today with a beautiful easel card. They are so much fun to create and are easy to assemble. The hardest part is picking the paper for each layer to get the biggest WOW factor. Here are my selections for Junes final week. Go to my web store link: http://www.craftsuprint.com/judith-henry/ to purchase.

June Challenge - Week 3 designs

Thank you friends for purchasing my week two projects. I had very nice response. This week I took a break from doing French inspired cards and turned to creating easel cards. One special lady has been featured in my cards. My granddaughter has been reading the binky fairy book and gave up her accumulation of binkies. I made her a card with "You Did It!", her favorite saying when she accomplished something. I've never heard of the book until this week but was happy to play along. I gave it to her this week end and got big grins. Enjoy this next installment of cards. only 5 more to go to make my challenge.

June Challenge - Week 2 designs

I've been really busy designing for this challenge even though my granddaughter was with us for a few days. I took a break and enjoyed playing in the park, taking walks, coloring, gardening and making a fathers day present for my two year old granddaughter's daddy. What energy she has!

I did make my challenge so far each week and have uploaded them to my CraftsUPrint account. The second week I have continued to design using the wrought iron balconies and fences I saw while in Paris. The garden gate card has been popular and turned out stunning.

I'm trying some new marketing strategies which have increased my sales. As a new designer it is a challenge to become known. You can help me by visiting my CraftsUPrint page  leaving comments, pinning them and sharing with others.

Thanks for your support

June Challenge - Week 1 Designs

I have found creating borders a challenge especially if they are very intricate. However, I did discover that having a new blade and cutting board has helped. I suggest that if you have problems with tearing paper while cutting you consider it is a dull blade. I researched several websites to figure out how to adjust my Silhouette cameo. I finally started with different paper and a specific intricate design to test my new blade and cutting board. I was surprised at how low I could set the knife and get very clean cuts. This encouraged me to design some new boarders and upload them to my CraftUPrint.com account.

For my first weeks challenge I have completed 6 new designs. Please leave comments, pin them and share with others.

I've made a challenge to myself to post 20 new projects in June. That makes five new projects per week. I'm off to a great start with these 3 new projects inspired by a wrought iron door hinge in France.

I would like to introduce you to my favorite designs exclusively sold at CraftsUPrint.com. I have now been a designer for two months and have posted over 20 projects. As I upload them to the store I plan to post them to this blog. I welcome any suggestions for new products. Please follow this blog to keep in touch.

What's with the name?

In 2012 I became a grandma. My daughter asked me what I wanted my granddaughter to call me. I never thought about this. I guess to keep things straight she could call me Grandma Henry. This might confuse her since she has a great grandma. I told my daughter that Gwen would name me. She did, I'm sure with the help of her mommy. I became Gammy and as she got older the "R" was added. Grammy, Grammy, Grammy.

When I retired I began making more cards. Many of them were with her in mind. My specialty is the popup form of cards. That has led me into a lot of research with the hopes of creating a popup book for my grand "children". This includes my nieces children.
