Designer Paper Perfection CD Blog Hop by Judy Jackson

Good morning and happy Blog Hop day to all you from Judy Jackson.  I love good Blog Hops and I think you will find this one is great! 

One of characteristic of paper crafters is that well, we love paper.  Slick papers, rough papers, shiny papers, decorative papers, bold patterned papers, vintage papers, quilt papers, dictionary papers, floral papers, card stock papers, vellum papers, steam punk papers, metallic papers, and more!  It doesn’t matter, we love it all.  We love to run our finger tips over paper, we love to smell certain papers, we love the various weights of papers, we can dream about papers, and we think up projects to use papers.  We enjoy looking at papers – all kinds of papers! If you were go into a paper crafter’s craft room, you will nearly always see PAPERS – stacks of papers, files of papers, drawers of papers, boxes of papers – and yet we BUY MORE!!  We love papers!

But all paper crafters know that it is often “just the right piece of paper” that will really “make their project.” Thus, there is this need to buy more paper so we have just what we need for a project.  And if we don’t have that just right paper, we are not opposed to go shopping for more --- PAPER!

So for all paper crafters, this new Technique Junkie CD called Designer Paper Perfection is for us – the paper crafters!  This CD will inspire the paper crafter inside each of us.  It may make a paper crafter go through their stacks and stacks of papers and create new cards, new projects, and incorporate new techniques into scrapbook pages.  Yeah for paper crafting! Yeah for PAPERS! 

to order this CD. All of the info is there. Trust me – if you like using designer paper you will like this CD!

The first technique I am using today is called Nine Block Quilt.   As the name implies you use nine blocks – but how you get those nine blocks is – well I can’t tell you. You will need to get the CD!  

The stamps about quilts is one of those unmounted stamps whose manufacturer I do not know. The "dream" stamp is by Stamp Camp (  - a vendor of Technique Junkies -.

The second technique I will highlight is Circle Square Quilt. This technique uses  circles and squares as you might guess.  My two cards are very different in appearance even though they both use the very same technique.  This is one of the things I love about stamping and various techniques.  You can use the same technique and often the same stamps and have very different cards.  The first card is bright and colorful. The different sections of the quilt are easily identified. The stamps companies are Stampin' Up and Markie's finest papers, a Heinrich Company - a vendor of Technique Junkies - (
My second card for this technique has an aged look to it.  Both the colors of the designer paper and the stamps from Stampers Anonymous and Stamp Camp (  - a vendor of Technique Junkies - add to this aged and distressed look. The different sections of the quilt are not so easily identified because of the papers I chose.

 Are you ready for the next designer in the hop? Nancy will have something wonderful to show you, I am sure!  Here are all of the stops along our Blog Hop today.   If you get lost, you can come back here to find your place once again.
