Hello!!!! I'm participating in a very special blog hop to say "Thank you" to all of the editors and staff at Paper Crafts and Scrapbooking Magazine. You should have arrived here from Lori Techler's blog (if you need to jump back just click on the link in her name.)
If you're a paper crafter, you probably know that the final issue of PC and S will be published in February of 2015. This is such a loss for us paper crafters, so when I was invited to be a part of this (huge!) blog hop...of course I said YES! You should see the entire blog roll at the end of this post...that is, if I followed the instructions correctly. :)
I've been a subscriber of Paper Crafts and Scrapbooking Magazine for many years. Poring over each issue as soon as it arrived in my mailbox. But, my most exciting memories of PC and S is when I received those emails from Susan Opel. The emails that we paper crafters refer to as Happy Mail. "Congratulations, your card has been accepted for publication!"
When I read that first email from Susan, my jaw actually dropped. Seriously. I had to read the message several times before that bit of news really soaked in. Eeeeeekkkkk!
What is really unbelievable is that the first card I ever submitted for publication, was actually accepted and published. I only had 2 cards published in PC and S, over the years. But those are events that I'll never forget.
So...I want to say a HUGE thank you to all of the editors and staff, for years of inspiration, information, ideas, sweepstakes and fun. Through the opportunities that this magazine gave me, I've met (on line) SO many other paper crafters from all over the world. I thank you from the bottom of my heart, for that.
For my Thank You card, I die cut a "thanks" mask from copy paper, then stamped dots of ink over and around the mask. That tiny dot is the only stamp I used on this card. One tiny stamp...over and over and over. Time consuming, but I love the result!
I got the idea for this card from (where else?) Pinterest. It was on a coffee mug HERE.
