Hi there, y'all! How's your summer going?
I must admit, mine got a little bit brighter when I saw this:
Not necessarily because I needed to be reminded of the truth of that sentiment, but because of where I saw it: the July/August issue of PaperCrafts:
And not necessarily because it's on an awesome card (though I do think it's a pretty good one), but because I MADE IT. AND IT'S IN A MAGAZINE! Back in January, one of my New Year's resolutions was to get one of my cards published. So I submitted to the then-current call for PaperCrafts -- the July/August call. Well...they picked up three of my projects!! THREE! Whoa. Might be the first time ever I could check off a resolution before the end of January :) You can see more information on the current issue here.
As much as I like to play with techniques and such when I stamp, I'm pretty sure that clean, graphic, simple design is what I'll always come back to. Hence, this card:
Sentiment: Unity; Paper: Basic Grey; Cardstock: Papertrey Ink
Really, really simple stuff -- a fun edge paired with the simplest stamping of all. A marker swipe to highlight, and I called it a day. You can see this project, as well as my other two (!), in this month's issue, which has lots and lots of other fun stuff in it, too -- not just my fun stuff ;)
Also, submitting cards has become a bit addictive...you'll be seeing more from me in upcoming months, so stay tuned!
