I'm a Cover Girl

I don't really like to toot my own horn, but I have to share this one because it makes me really excited!!!

Here it is...
...my first cover appearance on a Paper Crafts magazine... and a stamping issue to boot!!! Mine is the little beauty in green & white (but you probably could tell by the ribbon:). I almost didn't submit it because I was worried that it was too much green... lol. It just goes to show that you never know.

It is also ironic because over a year ago I wouldn't have considered myself a stamper.  But I made it a goal of mine to become "a stamper" and with a few classes at CKC, online tutorials and being inspired by seeing Tim Holtz at Stampaway USA, I think I can officially claim that title. Now don't get me wrong, I still only own about 7 colors of ink... and my patterned paper stash will always outweigh my stamps, but you can really do a lot with a few stamps and ink.

So if you are interested in giving your hand a try at stamping, Stamp It! Techniques is an issue not to miss... its like a little class in a book with beautiful examples and tutorials that all of us stampers AND non-stampers can try out from the comfort of our own home.

Take care & happy Thursday!
