And They All Fall Down: Splash of Color, GCD Studios, Canvas Corp, Lily Bee

GCD Studios

California-based GCD Studios filed for Chapter 7 (liquidation) bankruptcy in early December, listing assets of less than $2,000 and debts of over $2 million. The company ceased operations in late 2013, listing no profits for 2013 and a little over $300k for 2012. The vast majority of GCD’s debt is to investors, including owner/president Michael Rountree.

Ross appears to be focusing on her retreat business for the moment. Continue Reading →

Fall Berries by grandma lynnie

Lynn’s beautiful fall layout is the perfect example of the possibilities that are open with digital scrapping. She blended her photo with background paper and then blended text brushes onto the paper as well. Her large but light and airy title just adds to the perfection. The result is stunning.
