    Our Artist in Residence answers your questions
    Q: Deb asks: "What sizes do you cut your cardstock to have on hand?"
    A: I have mostly left my solid colored cardstock in full sheets - I never know if I'm going to need a base for a folded box or other larger project, so that's safer for me. I have cut some of my patterned papers and cardstock down to 6" squares - it's more likely to get used for a card front that way. I chose 6" because I like to make 5" square cards as well as A2, and that gives me more options for finished card fronts.
    Feedback From Past Tutorials
    Scrap_happens has a tip for the Get Well Kit tutorial: "So cute. I'm thinking a tea bag could fit on the front under the "Hey Friend" strip of paper. The tag on the tea bag could be embellished or replaced with an embellishment as well."
