Now with out further adieu I introduce to you:

Tara Scheuerman owner of Cracked Designs . She is one of our super fabulous talented customers. I had so much FUN looking thru her store and at her style.

Tara says:
My name is Tara and I'm the owner and graphic designer for Cracked Designs, a small handmade greeting card and design company based out of Milwaukee, WI. I started CD 3 years ago now, and have been loving every minute of it! I graduated from the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design in 2005 with a degree in Photography, but after graduation I still didn't really know what I wanted to do with my life. It wasn't until I designed my own wedding invitations 3 years ago, that I really feel in love with paper and then I knew I was hooked! I had such a great time designing them and got such amazing feedback, that I decided to pursue it further. I now have an extensive line of greeting cards and wedding invitations that I design. Everything I do is handmade, which give every product unique details and precision. I love creating clever and hilarious cards and always enjoy making my next design better than the last!I have an amazing and supportive husband, who is also the idea-generator for Cracked Designs. He never admits it, but he is the one who has come up with some of more hilarious cards. He is pretty awesome! I also have two giant dogs who I adore (a golden doodle and a great dane/poodle mix!) When I'm not designing, I love to travel (roadtrips especially!), take photographs, listen to music, go to flea markets, hang out with friends, and brainstorm card ideas with my husband.

Here are some of her fabulous creations using Cut Card product.

In this greeting card she used Jelly Bean Green Pop-Tones Paper (100# cover) and Kraft Brown Bag A2 envelope.

In these adorable gift tags she used our Exact Ice (80# cover)

Than in this fab stationary sets she used our Green Grocers Brown Bag Kraft Paper and Hot Fudge Pop-Tones A7 envelope.

Tara we have become a HUGE fan of yours...... Thank You for creating for us !

Have a Blessed & Creative Day !

Lot's Going On

Lot's going on here folks. Someday days I don't know whether I am coming or going. However we have so many wonderful things in store for you guys.
I hope that you are liking the new changes to the website. We have been working hard to make it easier for you to navigate and get around. We are slowly but surely changing the description/picture style so there is less scrolling on a page. Another one of my fave features is the shopping cart. You can now load your product and easily see how much shipping will be, by simply adding in your Fantastic is this !
We are also in our new warehouse and loving it.

Whats great about the larger warehouse we now have the option to add more product to our stock. We have a dedicated packing room and even a shipping room.
Here is Jay & Cindy working hard :' ) lol
With the move out of our way and a much larger warehouse we are adding new products. This is what we have added already:
Some beautiful Parchment papers by Wausau Astroparche, Royal Fibers by Wausau, Stardust and Astrobrights. Have you also checked out the selection we now have available in the Royal Linen line and Classic Crest by Neenah....... if you are looking to make a project with a lot of class and super quality feel the Neenah papers are for you !
Now while you are browsing the store do not forget to check out the new Translucent Chartham Shimmery Vellum. Absolutely beautiful and are perfect for so many projects. I could not resist taking time out to make a quick project with the Translucent Platinum shimmery vellum.

What I did was created a sleeve for this card. It is so sparkly, shimmery, translucent & just perfect ! I plan on using our Greengrocer's BROWN BAG Kraft Envelopes No. 10 POLICY with it.

Well keep an eye out because we will be posting sales, new product, give aways and we will also be spotlighting a fantastic Designer in the next few days. I really want to just quickly say that the spotlight designer is one of our very AMAZING TALENTED customers. Her style is very unique, the humor in her cards is just perfect and it sets her work apart. So make sure to come back and visit.
Have a very Creative & Blessed Day,
