ADI Scrapkits & ADI Artists being used together:

IF both artist and designer are with ADI and if there is room, we feel that both artist and designer should be given credit on the tag.

If you are using a FTU artist and an ADI scrapkit, please if there is room add the kit designer info unless there is not enough room or detracts from the tag.
