I would normally not say this but YAY ME….. I am very proud of myself this month (so is my Mum), I designed the cover projects of this month’s “For Keeps Creative Paper” magazine (everything on the cover is done my me) and I also have 4 cards in the latest Australian Cardmaking, Stamping and Papercraft magazine….
Here is my cover of For Keeps Creative Paper, I almost died when the editor Casey Wilson emailed me and ASKED me (yes ME) to do the cover project…This is the biggest thing I have ever done and I am very proud of my achievement. The feet and shoes belong to my sweet little Niece Bailey Jane (when she was a baby) and the photo’s on the cube are her as well. I had a great time last week, I took Bailey into the newsagent and walked up to the craft section with her, I did not say anything to her that she was on the cover and wanted to see if she would notice….She looked at the magazine, Pulled on my skirt, Look up at me and said “Auntie, Auntie….look that’s Bailey” I just wish I had a camera to capture her excited little face. This is not the first time she has been in a magazine (she was in a project I did for Scrapbooking Memories last year but we told her she was in the magazine). So for more details check out the current issue of For Keeps Creative Paper.
And I also have four cards in Australian Cardmaking, Stamping and Papercraft magazine this month, Here are the cards I made using Bud Basic. I did these cards a while ago and I think my style has changed since then.
I just can’t believe how far I have come in the past year and I am so grateful for the people who have encouraged me to “dream big”. Not in my wildest dreams would I have ever thought I would have anything published in a magazine let alone be asked to do a COVER, Or make a living out of Papercraft by Teaching, design work and doing Stampin’ Up!.
