 I have been MIA from my blog for a while now, as I devoted all my time to my newest adventure, Gina's Designs.  After several moves and some growing pains, I have the store firmly established and growing.  I have a talented design team, who turn my products into wonderful art, and I am now looking for more members to join the team.

Design Team Call for Gina's Designs

  2. 4 cards equal only one project? My cards take me a long time and a lot of heart...many layers..just as much as one layout. cherry

    1. Cherry, some cards would, as you say, take as much time and heart as a layout, but some wouldn't. Many people do cards as a set, and they may not be as elaborate as yours. If you are interested in applying for the team, please know we could negotiate how many cards constitute a project. It is more about quality and content than a number.
