Meet Jen Goode - Illustrator, Designer and Cricut Fan

Hi! My name is Jen Goode (pronounced Goody). I am an Illustrator and Designer and the Doodler in Charge at JGoode Designs, a design studio based in Colorado. I'm a work-at-home mom of 3 and I absolutely love all things creative. I've been a creative professional since 1996 and I'm constantly on the look out for more ways to create and share fun project ideas. 





I enjoy creating in all mediums but especially love to draw with a basic black ink pen. I recently started designing projects to use specifically with the new Cricut Explore and I try to integrate my drawings into my projects. You can view my Cricut Design Space project gallery here.



My absolute favorite projects to create are the ones that use the fine point Midnight Black pen with the Cricut Explore. (Sure! You can use another pen, I just love the classic pen and ink look). I especially love watching the machine draw and the end result always looks like someone hand drew the design. I Love It!

Here are a few of my favorite Cricut projects:


Mini Love Note with envelope and confetti

Rainbow Flower Card


Picnic Greeting Card

More about Me

Besides Cricut projects, I love to sew, paint, draw and pretend I can cook (my husband eats it, so it must count, right?). I'm an active member of the Craft and Hobby Association. I've worked with a variety of craft manufacturers to create project tutorials including i Love to Create, Clearsnap, DecoArt, Krylon, Styrofoam, Xyron among others. I blog about my creative adventures and ideas on 100Directions.com where I share all kinds of creative fun from craft tutorials to recipes and family activities. I also share printable projects (free downloads for you, YAY!) and sometimes reviews of products that I love. You can find all of my Cricut project ideas, tips and information on my Create with Cricut page.

I just created an entire picnic collection with a whole slew of fun picnic themed goodies you can make. I wish summer would last forever!

I'm so excited to be a part of this team and am looking forward to sharing more creative Cricut ideas with you! I've got more fun projects on the way, I hope you like them. I LOVE feedback and am always looking for suggestions, so if something I create sparks idea or a question, please share, I'd love to hear from you!
