This was an amazing project to write + direct with so many awesome and talented collaborators.

How many parallels to Christmas Eve Story can you find in this modern day tale off that special night?

We know of at least 10+ easter eggs that parallel the story of the Savior’s birth found in this video.

One that people may not catch is the LIGHT (Star) hanging down in the garage above the group.”

Karli Duisen – American Crafts

I was happy to get to design these drop caps for a fairy tale inspired paper collection. I’m really happy with how they turned out so I guess the hand cramps from drawing them were worth it?

Cassidy & Matt & American Crafts


From VAD Alumnus Cassidy Demkov, designer at American Crafts:

“Sometimes I get to design something other than paper and embellishments. I designed this wire storage system for the @cratepaper Craft + Office Storage program with @jlsimmons and @ashleycollettdesign I can’t wait to get one for my own office. Maybe I’ll be organized?”


From VAD Alumnus Matt Page, designer at American Crafts:

“Here’s a set of foam stickers I designed for decorating pumpkins. They only got picked up by TJ Maxx this year, but hopefully next year they’ll get a wider distribution. They are lots of fun and no mess.”

Nice work Cassidy and Matt!

Just another day in the life of a VAD alumnus and designer…

Cassidy Demkov at American Crafts:

“Here are a few of the patterns and Ephemera pieces I designed for the #maggieholmesshine line. My favorite part was probably painting the flowers or designing the ephemera charts.

The new @maggiehdesign + @cratepaper Shine collection comes out today (September 17th). This is one of my favorite collections I have worked on so far. I am so thankful that I get to design such pretty things everyday with some really great gals. ‪#‎cratepaper‬ ‪#‎maggieholmesshine‬ #‎scrapbooking‬ 📷: @maggiehdesign
