Julie McGuffee
Originally from England, Julie now lives in the United States where she turned her hobby into a professional career as an arts and crafts designer. With a background in decorative painting, Julie has designed projects and written instructions for over 30 books. She writes two columns on a monthly basis for a nationally distributed crafts magazine and has appeared on numerous TV shows. Julie is also a regular guest on the popular Public Television show, “Hands On Crafts for Kids”. She has also appeared as a guest and co-host of “More Than Memories”.

In 1996 Julie and fellow designer Jean Kievlan formed their own design services company. They work with leading manufacturers in the arts and crafts industry to help promote and develop quality product lines.

Julie Fei-Fan Balzer is a self-taught mixed media artist and avid scrapbooker. She has been making art for as long as she can remember and loves the process of creating. “I believe that mistakes are creative opportunities and hold fast to the notion that enjoyment of the process is just as important as the finished product! I like to think outside of the box — experimenting with paper, paint, and fabric — always trying to find a way to push my supplies further and see all the possibilities.”

Julie has been published in many magazines including Cloth Paper Scissors, Quilting Arts, Creating Keepsakes, Better Homes & Gardens’ Scrapbooks Etc., Memory Makers, Scrapbook Trends, Somerset Memories, Somerset Digital, scrapbooking m.m. (Sweden), Scrapbooking & Beyond, Simple Scrapbooks, Histories de Pages (France), books by Leisure Arts, F&W Publications, and Quarry (upcoming), as well as multiple e-zines. She has appeared several times on Quilting Arts TV (PBS) and hosted the “Artist to Artist” segment on Scrapbook Memories TV (PBS).  Julie’s hour long instructional DVD “Collage Fast & Furious” was released in July 2010 by Interweave.  

Julie and her husband live in a tiny apartment with a big art studio in the middle of New York City.
