I'm excited to share that Shakira from Scrapbook Takeout randomly e-mailed me and said that they love the stamp designs I've been doing for My Kits & Pieces and want me to design some stamps for them! How cool! I believe that they also put up a call at PubCalls because they're looking for a couple of designers, in case you're interested.
My first stamps will go out with the August kit!
And remember how I had a layout picked up by Creating Keepsakes last week? Well, Memory Makers requested the same layout yesterday. Eeek! That's the first time that has ever happened to me. But, I remembered some good advice I had read somewhere and I offered them two other layouts as possible substitutes (same topic and a similar look) and lo and behold, they picked one of them up today! Yay! So, I will have a layout in the November/December issue of Memory Makers!
Thanks for letting me celebrate!
Finally, the July kits are in at My Kits & Pieces and I received the "Bask" kit seen here:
As soon as I opened the box, I wrote to Rosy (the DT coordinator) and told her that it was maybe my favorite kit ever! And I rushed off to make these three layouts:
And while I like them very much (especially the star frame stamp I used on the middle one - it's one of my designs and it's being sold as part of the "Oh Beautiful" scrapbook kit this month) there's something missing for me. I can't quite put my finger on it. I think because I loved the kit so much I froze up a bit and got inhibited about cutting up the pretty papers and "wasting" stuff. Isn't that silly? So, I'm planning to take the remaining bits of the kit and get medieval on it! LOL! So, hopefully there will be some more new layouts soon!
Anyway, that's all the news that's fit to print! Thanks for stopping by!
