Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking Magazine Special Thanks Blog Hop


Welcome to the Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking Magazine Special Thanks Blog Hop!! You should have arrived from the wonderful Erin Schreiner.
Sigh. My heart has been very heavy ever since I received this email about Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking Magazine closing its doors. What?? My magazine??? Until that day, my crafting life has been consisting (among other things) of creating cards for magazine calls, waiting for happy acceptance emails, preparing accepted cards to make their journey over the pond and waiting for the magazines to hit the newsstands.  For 4 years. After about 250 published projects. All the people working there were so sweet. I got my daily dose of THE Susan Opel on Facebook, Instagram or the Paper Crafts Connection blog. The Go-To-Gals inspired us immensely. They brought us news from CHAs, the newest trends on the Moxie Fab World, showed the hottest products being released and everything else a paper crafter was looking for every day. Now this will be no more. The end of an era. To say thank you, to wish all the lovely people from PC&S all the best for their new adventures and to honor their work, we are doing this blog hop today. Here comes one of the last cards I did submit to the last ever PC&S submission call:


I used the My Favorite Things stamp set "You're Super". The chalkboard background was created using white embossing powder, white pigment ink and white pencil on black cardstock. The girl was die-cut and stamped onto white cardstock, then I colored her using Copics and gave her the mask that I die-cut from black cardstock. She is popped up with foam tape.
Dear PC&S ladies and Matt, I think you are super, awesome, unstoppable and I am sure your new adventures will be wonderful! Wishing you all the best!! Thank you for all the Gallery Idol competitions, the World Card Making Day celebrations, the endless inspiration in your magazines, for connecting paper crafters from all over the world, for making us feel special! I will miss you dearly!!!

Your next stop is the one and only Simon Says Stamp blog. Enjoy!!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Vanessa

supplies:
My Favorite Things You're Super stamp set + dies - Hero Arts white pigment ink, white embossing powder - Tsukineko ink - Copic markers - white pencil
