My name is Jennifer Picard and I am "addicted" to paper crafting. I am a very busy mom of 3 and love how card making and scrapping have been able to help me find some "me" time.
Interests: card making, scrapbooking, and teaching others how to be creative whether it be through make up or paper crafts.

It's the same story for me every year in May when it comes to my paper crafting goals; use up the paptterned papers I have been hoarding and focus on inking up those stamps sets that will be retiring from the Stampin' Up! Catalogue. Now as a demonstrator I was able to get my hands on some upcoming new items that will be released in the 2019-2020, however I have been really good and set my preorder aside, until now. TGIF Challenges was the perfect excuse to pull out a fabulous new stamp set called Free As A Bird. It... Continue reading

I personally, rarely CASE something exactly, but love that I can be... Continue reading

Last week I registered for Stampin' Up's OnStage Convention. To say I am excited to be in Orlando in November would be an understatement, I can't wait to soak in all of the amazing creativity and see some of my favourite people:) One of the hilights of Convention is checking out all of the fabulous display samples created by fellow demonstrators, showcasing new and upcoming products. This year I thought I would apply to be one of those stampers (fingers crossed). To apply I need to showcase my work with 3 cards, 2 3D items and a scrapbook page. These... Continue reading

As i have mentioned before, I love a good challenge! Especially when it involves playing around with colour combinations. This week at the Global Design Project they are having a colour challenge, so naturally I had to play along. I started with a piece of Shimmery White and stamped the floral image using Stazon Jet Black Ink. I then proceeded to colour the whole background with Mint Macaron Ink using an Aquapainter. I love the way the shimmery White Card stock takes to watercolouring. The flowers were then colored the same way using Fresh Fig and Grapefruit Grove. To add... Continue reading

This week's challenge at the Global Design Project is to CASE the designer. I love a good challenge and when I saw that the designer was the very talented Charlet Mallett I knew I had to find the time to play along this week! CASEing (Copy And Selectively Edit) is a great way to have a starting point for a project. I love Charlet's card, the colours, clean lines and use of contrasting pattered papers. I very much copied the main base layout with layering DSP and banner. I started with a Whisper white card base and added on a... Continue reading

When the new Stampin' Up! catalogue was first available to view online for demos, I not so patiently waited for it to download so I could virtually flip through every last page. There were so many amazing stamp sets and accessories that it was hard to decide what to order first, but I knew the minute I saw Dandelion Wishes it was a must have. I fell in love with the combination of whimsical images and fabulous fonts. So the minute I received my order it was the first set to see ink. This week's Global Design Project is a...
