About

Hi! I’m Jean. 

Welcome to my blog – I’m so glad you’re here!  This is where I share my handmade cards, crafts, and other art-related projects.

 

A Little More About Me


I love to make cards and enjoy trying out new techniques and products.  My artistic “style” differs almost daily – it just depends on what I’m making, the look I’m going for, who the intended recipient is, and, well, sometimes just the mood I’m in.  

By nature, I am an uber-organizer and a steadfast planner, but as you’ll see, my creations are much more fluid.  And while I love color theory, the concept of lights and shadows, and the importance of depth and perspective – these are not things I worry about when it comes to my creations. 

I just want what I make to be pretty.  Or cool.   

And even though I sometimes come away with nothing but a really good learning experience, I always find joy in the making.   

I hope that by sharing my cards and other art with you here on my blog you will be inspired to make something of your own, try a new technique, or, if nothing else, just enjoy looking at the pretty (cool) creations.

 

About Studio JD


Everything you see on this blog is created by me in my home “studio” (thus, the name “Studio JD”).  Every card is unique and made for the sole purpose of bringing joy to me (in the creating of it) and to you (in the receipt of it or the inspiration it brings).

I do not work for any of the companies whose supplies I use in my creations but I do participate in a small number of affiliate programs. This means that I’ll receive a small commission if you purchase through my links. Using my links does not cost you anything more. I use all commissions gained from the links to pay for the expenses of maintaining this blog and the expenses associated with making cards, teaching, and sharing what I create. I appreciate any support you provide! Please read my full disclaimer for more information.

The majority of the supplies used to make my cards and other projects are purchased by me; however, I may occasionally receive products from companies. Regardless of how I acquire the products, I do not share or recommend products that I would not use or buy myself.

This blog will contain information about various techniques and products that I love. All opinions shared on this blog are my own.

Lastly, artwork and photos shown on this blog are property of Studio JD, LLC (unless otherwise noted).

Things I Love


When I’m not making cards or blogging about making cards, my passions include anything geeky (I’m definitely a gadget junkie), reading (anything to do with vampires, werewolves, or witches and I’m all-in), travel (the farther away the better), my puppy (Riley, who brings me joy every day just by being her own cute and somewhat sassy self), and spending time with my husband of 21 years (who makes me laugh every day, is the best sounding board, and supports me in everything I do – even if it is a bit crazy).
