I am here today among hundreds of amazing women celebrating a magazine that we have incredible love and respect for...Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking magazine. If you haven't heard the news, they have decided to cease publication. This news came as a shock to me. I consider all of the incredible people behind it to be my friends, so I was sad to hear that they now have to move onto other things.
I'd like to say THANK YOU...you have touched my life.
Paper Crafts magazine was my first love in the scrapbooking industry. My second - Creating Keepsakes magazine.
I submitted my first card to PC in Sept. 2004, and to my utter surprise, they accepted it. I became obsessed with submitting my work to PC and CK. Both magazines inspired me like nothing ever has (it's what opened my eyes). I became a better designer and I will be forever grateful to them for welcoming me into their world.
Working for PC became a goal of mine and one that I never thought could happen. The day I got the phone call to be one of the six Go-to Gals was one of the most wonderful phone calls I have ever received. I was humbled and honored to be a small part of something so wonderful. I truly appreciate the opportunity.
I was invited into the editors homes. I attend editorial board meetings and trade shows and taught at CKC's. I was soooo fortunate and very lucky. I will hold those treasured times close to my heart (always) I still have every issue I was published in.
PC and CK - I love you...always have...always will. I wish you all the very best. You are an exceptional group of people and the industry won't be the same without you. Soooo, I hope to see you all around. (smooches)
This is a card I created to tell you all that you are simply the best.
I used new alphabet stamps that will be released in January 2015.
