Good morning, friends!
As summer slowly inches closer to us, I am soaking in the longer days. More time to go for a swim, chat with friends, and of course, craft. Lucky for us, we’re just a weekend away from our exciting Card Creations 10 week, so you’ll have even more inspiration to craft with!
Beginning Monday, we’ll be spotlighting our latest publication, Card Creations, Volume 10. As our most popular special issue, Card Creations continues to be a Paper Crafts magazine best-seller! This issue promises to wow even the most advanced card maker, while offering 164 pages of plenty of designs and techniques that beginners will love too.
Once again we’re partnering with trends editor Cath Edvalson and the Moxie Fab World blog. We’ll be spotlighting some designers and giving away copies of the issue while she’ll be hosting some exciting challenges! Between the two sites, we’re going to have a lot of fun!
But before the week starts, I thought I would just give you a delicious little sneak peek from the magazine and show you my personal favorite from the issue.
Isn’t it just delightfully gorgeous? I love the green/yellow/white color scheme along with the mix of textures including wood grain, ribbon, twine, roses, and I also like the zigzag pattern in the background. Everything works together so beautifully on this card, and this is just one of many fantastic cards in the issue. Stay tuned for more Card Creations fun next week here on the Paper Crafts Connection blog and over at Moxie Fab World!
And don’t forget that Gallery Idol starts Monday too! What a big day!
Thanks for checking in!
P.S. Sunday is Paper Crafts editor in chief Jennifer Schaerer’s birthday. She doesn’t like anyone making a big fuss over it, but we still wanted to give her a little birthday shout out and give you an opportunity to wish her a happy one as well! Have a great weekend!
