Practical Solutions for Paper Crafters!!


This issue went on sale a few days ago, but it slipped my mind to share it here with you all. It’s big (164 pages big!) and beautiful, and full of practical solutions of all kinds for your paper crating needs!

Back when I was asked to design for this publication I was so excited about the concepts and practical tips that were going to be included. When I finally got to see the magazine I was not disappointed! It’s amazing and it’s by far my favorite publication yet!! No kidding! The ideas in this issue are so incredibly creative and out of the box fantastic that while I paged through it I kept saying things like “Oh, how clever” and “Oh.My.Word! How cute is that?!” Not only did the designers all do an outstanding job creative innovative and impressive projects for this issue, but the editors outdid themselves when it came to creating super fabulous displays of storage options that are not only practical, but are easy on the eyes and affordable too!

I had three projects published in this issue and this one is my favorite.

It’s a mini album with random leftover chipboard letters layered on the cover and then painted with acrylic paint. You can find this project on page 131 in the “Don’t Throw it Away” section.

Run, don’t walk, to your nearest newsstand and grab up this fantastic issue before it’s all gone! I saw it the other day in my local Barnes and Noble book store. Do you know how hard it is to see a magazine on the rack that has your work in it and not say to the lady standing next to you “Hey, guess what! I’m in this magazine!” But I restrained myself. I didn’t want to scare her away! Hee! Anyway, believe me when I say you’ll love this issue!

I’ll be back here again tomorrow with some fun with Market Street Stamps!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

    I sure hope our B&N has this on the shelf! If they do I might not be as quiet as you and might just brag about how I “know” one of the artists/contributors. Well they don’t need to know that you’re a virtual friend, but I count myself lucky to have discovered your talent! Congratulations!

    Love this issue, and I totally love that mini album. It totally caught my eye on the first flip through.

    And I totally know what you mean about holding your tongue at the book or craft store! Funny enough, my mom isn’t shy about telling strangers that her daughter’s in a magazine. And if I ever make a cover, I would be so tempted to print post-its to stick to all of them that say “This was made by a local paper crafter!”

    I am always on the look out for practical storage solutions because, let’s face it, we all have way too much stuff!! I am a big recycler and it doesn’t help that I keep everything even remotely useful, with the hopes that I will use it on crafts (empty tp rolls anyone?). So your card with the leftover chipboard letters really appeals to me! Great texture and a wonderful look!

I love hearing from my readers! Thanks for your comment!
