    Our Artist in Residence answers your questions
    Q: We heard this question from a lot of members this week: "Where did the project tutorials go?"
    A: The Resources page was overhauled. Now there are three sections: Techniques, Projects and Newsletters. To find the project tutorials, just look near the top of the page for the link to PROJECTS. You'll find it directly under the Splitcoast Resources heading.
     
    Feedback From Past Tutorials
    Kathynruss has a hint for Surprise Pop Up Cards.
    "My demonstrator had a cool little half punch that she used as a stop to keep the card from sliding shut. You can see it really well in this picture."
