    Our Artist in Residence answers your questions
    Q: Georgiababydoll asks: "I made a card following one of the tutorials, but I don't know how to get my card to upload to the specified gallery. I uploaded it to my gallery. What do I need to do differently?"
    A: If you follow one of our weekly tutorials, we love it when you upload to the technique gallery - it's just fun to see everyone's work together! On the gallery upload screen you'll choose Technique Spotlight in the first dropdown menu. In the second dropdown, find the name of the tutorial, then continue with the upload as usual. There are galleries for all kinds of things - specific projects, special occasions, specific Stampin' Up! sets, and more. If you're not sure where your card fits, just upload to your member gallery. You can use the description section to fill in keywords and any other details you care to share about your card. Keywords help group your card with other uploads by company, techniques, products, themes, specific challenges, and more!
    Feedback From Past Tutorials
    vgpeterson says this about the Glass Pendants tutorial: "Love this! I bought jewelry pieces like these with my sons' artwork when they were in elementary school, and they made great gifts for their grandmothers, especially treasured now that the youngest is heading off to college. I look forward to creating some pieces myself."
