Paper Crafting Time Warp!

It seems that most papercrafting magazines (stamping & scrapping) work at least 6 months in advance.

So, here it is, we've just celebrated July 4th, it's 90+°, and the magazines are looking for stuff for Christmas, Valentine's Day, and St. Patrick's Day.

Therefore, I've been a busy little person and have been working on some projects for these magazines.

Here are a card/tag/bag set and two cards that I've submitted recently. If they get picked up (fingers crossed everyone!), I'll have to pull 'em down. But, I figure I've been such a woefully horrendous blogger, I should just put 'em up for now and hope for the best.

This project kind of grew. I started with the card, but had some leftover stamped and colored Sylvies. So I created a "tweet bag" and a tag to go with the card. The stamps are mostly justjohanna. I used Sylvie left, Sylvie right,, "you're so tweet", and "Waltzing Matilda" alphabet for the "tweet bag". The patterned papers are Lily Kate from Basic Grey. The images were colored with Prismacolor markers. I used Purple Onion's "Happy Valentine's Day" and a QuicKutz rub-on on these too.

"Purrfect" uses justjohanna's Intertwined Kitties, which is one of my favorites! I used Basic Grey's Blush papers for this card with a QK scalloped frame, an old punch, and some other stuff. I computer generated the sentiment.

The St. Patrick's Day card features the justjohanna rolling hills stamp. I chalked the cloudy/blue sky and the rainbow and then printed the Irish prayer over it.


  1. Holy moley! These are fantastic!!

  2. I think the chance of "pulling them down" is high...since they are awesome! I love the jj bag!!

  3. Great cards - hope you have to pull them down (wink!). I know what you mean about the time warp - I always seem to just miss the deadline!
