Card Ideas for Paper Crafters

Did you happen to see the post over at Paper Crafts Connections blog? There is a NEW special issue hitting news stands in August, an issue that I am super duper excited to get my hands on! Card Ideas for Paper Crafters (formerly known as Go-To Sketches) is a hugely popular bookazine that I was asked to design sketches for! I submitted 46 sketches that I made right before Winter CHA and I had six selected! Readers then submitted cards based on the sketches! Three fun filled facts that make me curl my toes with excitement are:

1. I was one of only four designers that had the most sketches picked up.
2. One of my sketches was one of the TOP 3 sketches for most submitted cards!
3. Even though I submitted cards for my sketches (none of mine were picked--haha!) I had two cards picked up for this HIGHLY competitive issue (I can't stress this enough!). And, I was able to get my other cards picked up for publication. DON'T GIVE UP!
