Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking Magazine:: A Fond Farewell


Welcome to the heartfelt farewell Blog Hop honoring the dedication and remembering the inspiration of Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking Magazine. If you are following the hop order, you should have arrived from Tessa Wise's Blog.

Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking Magazine...gosh, you were such a big part of my life these past few years. I remember the joy of receiving an email that one of my cards...one of my creations...was going to be published for the world to see! Then came the time where I saw a stamp design that I created being used in a published card as well! Thank you for that amazing feeling of being one of the elite to be selected for publication. Thank you for producing amazing inspiration year after year. Thank you, Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking Magazine and the amazing people behind the publication, for all you did!

Even though I don't craft as much as I used to and may not be up on all the current trends, I still enjoy the process of creating! My card today features some water-coloring and heat embossing, as well as some trendy gold. I used a nice, large sentiment from Lil' Inker Designs Darling Diamonds Stamp Set and heat embossed it in gold, then splashed some ink on the top as well as some water to mix all the colors together. I then cut the sentiment out using Lil' Inker Designs Pinking Edge Sentiment Flag Die Set and mounted that over two strips of gold washi tape onto a peach card base.

Thanks again, PC & S and the grand people behind the scenes, good luck in all your new adventures!

Your next stop on the blog hop is Tiffany DeGough!
