Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking Magazine Special Thanks! Blog Hop

Good morning, all! Rather, it's a somber morning for most of here in blog land. The majority of us are taking part in this epic blog hop to celebrate and honor Paper Crafts and Scrapbooking Magazine. 

Today, we sadly bid what is an essential part of our creative lives goodbye. This has certainly impacted so many of us as we all have our own personal connections to Paper Crafts and Scrapbooking Magazine. For me anyway, Paper Crafts wasn't just a magazine, it was a gold standard as a designer. I have been fortunate enough to have several of my creations published in the magazine and participated in their Gallery Idol contest in 2010. I am grateful for all those experiences and opportunities.

On a larger scale, it's really not just about the magazine... it's the people behind the colorful pages who brought the life and energy to it. So to the wonderful team behind Paper Crafts and Scrapbooking Magazine, THANKS for all you've done and meant to so many aspiring designers over the years.

THANKS for fostering a community of talent and creativity.

THANKS for bringing so many creative minds all over the world together.

THANKS for the good times. 

My card was watercolored. I used our Thanks Script Creative Cuts and Many Thanks stamp set.

You should've found your way here from the blog of Lucy Abrams.

This is the last stop of the hop, but I'm gonna loop you all the way to the beginning again, which is none other than our gal, Jennifer McGuire. :)


Purrfect Pair with Ashley!

 Hi, Ashley here sharing a card using the new Purrfect Pair stamp set. I started off with the two adorable large cats included in the set. I stamped and die cut them, then used Copics to color them in. I love all of the different ways you can colors these cats! They are so much fun!

After I finished the cats, I stamped, die cut and colored the sweet bow to dress up the girl cat. I just love the fish bone included in this set so I stamped it on my card base and added the die cut bowl on top. To do this I stamped the entire bowl image (which includes noodles) then I die cut it and trimmed the top off. 

I stamped the sentiment on a tag from Slim Tags Trio and wrapped the end around my card base which was cut from the large frame in the Peek a Frame die set. The stitching detail on the card base and tag are such fun addition that brings a lot of interest to the card.

That is my card for today! Thanks for stopping by!
