Magazine card and news


This is the second of two A6 baby girl cards I was commissioned to make for Papercraft Inspirations. The designs had to be easily adapted for baby boys. I love this sweet LOTV Elephant digi. Goodness there are a lot of elephants on my blog at the moment, It has been coloured with Copics, the digital papers are Nitwits, lace from Crafty Ribbons, sentiment from LOTV.

Challenges
The Paper Shelter make it digital 

I was recently asked to join the design team at Papercraft Essentials magazine and received my first commission yesterday. I am thrilled to be designing for them.

I also had a lovely surprise when I saw the front cover of Papercrafter magazine. I have had small pictures on the front of magazines but this is the first time my card has been the main picture. A cover girl at last! Here it is.
