Totally excited about this...I'm the Scrapbook News and Review magazine Featured Artist!
I feel honored to be included with such a talented group of crafters!! Thank you SNR!! And now I know why I've never sent in any of my creations for publication...I was seriously stressed out trying to think of a project worthy of the magazine! Seriously!!!
Here's some of my featured article....
When thinking of a project to share, my thoughts went to the upcoming school year. Teachers are such an important part of our children's lives and I know many of us try to help them in whatever way we can in providing an excellent educational experience for our children. Therefore, I decided to create a card set for a teacher in my clean and simple style.
This set consists of four cards in a simple card-wrap holder tied with twine, using cardstock, design paper, die-cuts and stamps.
I specifically created this set for a teacher to have thank you cards available to send out when needed. However, you can easily see the versatility of this set by simply changing the stamped sentiment.
The children can even help in the mass production process, depending on their age! These are standard size card bases in Kraft cardstock with one layer of solid cardstock and one of designer paper. The die-cut can be whatever shape is appropriate to your theme. Apples and teachers seem to go together!
The wrap is just that, cardstock wrapped around the set of cards. From a 12x12 inch piece of cardstock, cut a stripe 5.75 inches wide. Score at 4.50, 4.75, 9.50 & 9.75 inches. You can add a decorative edge on your flap if you like. I've added a button to the twine for interest; it isn’t attached to the card-wrap.
Stamps: SU! stamps
sentiment - Verve stamps
Paper: SU! kraft cs, BasicGrey dp
Ink: Memento black, SU! Classic pads
Other: button, twine,
