A little about me:
Many of you have been blog readers of mine for some time now, but for those of you who are new to my work, I'd like to take a minute to introduce myself! My name is Danielle Flanders, and I've been paper crafting for about 15 years now. It all began when my first daughter was born. I wanted to document her life as a baby and create a memory book for her. Since then, I've worked for many paper and stamp manufacturers and am so grateful to have had my work published numerous times. Cardmaking is a favorite pasttime of mine as well. I love to send happy mail to make people smile! I would say my style is trendy, light and airy, clean - yet layered, girly and colorful.

About my Craftsy class:
The class I'm teaching with Craftsy is: Cards With Dimension: Lovely Layers, Textures and Embellishments.  By clicking the link, I'm happy to offer 1/2 off my class today! Sign up and watch the class anytime, at your own pace. Ask questions of the instructors and post pictures of your cards in the class platform as well! It's a great way to work on your cardmaking skills and gain feedback from the Craftsy instructors. You can read more about the class HERE. In the class, I focus on creative and simple ways to add texture to your cards with embossing, stitching, embellishing tips and ways to use vellum, tips on layering patterned papers and much more!

i'm leaning more towards clean and simple or clean and layered cards, not only because i love the look of those and they are easier to mail, but also because creating perfect layers seems loke a daunting task to me.
