My First Feature Publication 60

Mona Pendleton | Friday, November 11, 2011 @ 9:00 AM | , ,

Hi there! Are you ready for the weekend? I know I am! LOTS of football games on for my sweet hubby Scott to enjoy which = time for me to play with my papercrafting goodies :) I'm SUPER excited to share my first publication feature with you. Waaaaaay back in June, I was invited to create a set of projects for the awesome Simply Cards & Papercraft Magazine. Each and every issue of Simply Cards & Papercraft Magazine is FULL of fabulous inspiration from around the world! Many thanks to Simply Cards & Papercraft Magazine for the wonderful opportunity! For my feature, I was to create 6 projects using Waltzingmouse Stamps  ~ 2 Beginner, 2 Intermediate and 2 Advanced for Issue 89 based on a 'Time for tea / cocoa / winter warmers theme, using Red, Cream and a Gold colour palette while incorporating embossing.
 Shown below is the complete suite of my projects and my silly mug shot :)
