    Our Artist in Residence answers your questions
    Q: GeorgiaBabydoll asks: "I don't know how to get my card to upload to a specific tutorial gallery. I uploaded it to my gallery. What do I need to do differently?"
    A: For next time, when you upload to the gallery, there are some dropdown options at the top - the tutorials are under Technique Spotlight in the first dropdown, and then the name of the tutorial in the second dropdown. For the card you've uploaded, you can go into your edit screen (bottom right corner under your Card Details, then you'll see the option to change the category. Scroll down until you see Technique Spotlight, and then the tutorials will be listed below that. (Thank you for doing that! You can always just upload to your member gallery, but it's neat to see all the tutorial examples together, and it's great for inspiration!)
    Feedback From Past Tutorials
    tawna21 has a tip for Brush Stroke Foiling: "You can also put the 'non-laminator' option through a die cut machine (in a sandwich) and the pressure will adhere it down beautifully."
