Hello! I am very excited to be here today to share something amazing, surreal, can't believe it but one of my cards is on the cover of Stamp It by Paper Crafts!
Which one do you think is mine???
Of course the Newspaper Tulips one! :> Do you like it? You can find more details on page 138!
Last night I had to celebrate:
Yup cheesecake! Chocolate Chip Cookie Cheesecake! Yummy!
Getting a card on the cover is beyond something I ever thought possible or even thought of! This is my first publication in Paper Crafts magazine! I remember back in February (if I remember correctly) when I finally got a happy email from them! I cried tears of joy because it was I think my third time trying! It felt so unattainable and I am really glad that the rejection didn't put me off. Than in April when I received the email that my card was going to be on the cover I sat by my laptop in my kitchen at my island in shock. It felt surreal from the top of my head to my toes! I cried and was just plain surprised! I have always loved and bought Stamp It, for years before I even started being online. All those years ago if someone had told me that my card would be on the cover one day I would not have believed them!
I've been beyond blessed this last little while! I hope that I never appear to be boastful or a show off. I share with you because I know you all really get it. Most of my friends and family get it too and rejoice with me but I still come across people who don't get it and don't always say the nicest things. I know that you all get it the most! I love this hobby. I love stamping, I love playing with paper, I love creating! It really helps me to be the best (or just good at lol) at everything else if I have some time for me to paper craft!
This is the only card I have in this issue! I submitted I think 7 and one of was picked up. I want to share that I rejoice in the one card and not think or dwell or be sad in the other 6 that weren't picked up. If I have 1 card picked up I am happy. Not every card we make and submit will be picked up. Doesn't mean that those cards aren't good, it just means it probably didn't fit and someone else's did fit. If things aren't picked up it doesn't mean we aren't good enough either, don't let that define you! Keep true to yourself, keep on crafting because crafting is the best part!
