Paper Crafts and Scrapbooking Magazine
If you didn't already know, my favorite magazine Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking is closing up shop soon. I am hopping along with a few hundred of my friends today to let the editors, writers, and contributors know how much they'll be missed. You may have come from Deepti Malik's blog- she's ahead of me on the hop list. If not, pop over to check out her wonderful project.
I didn't realize just how sad I am about PC&S going away until just now. It's more than a magazine- it's a giant sized community of cardmakers and scrapbookers- inspiration, challenges, contests, friends, cheerleaders, people who love the hobby and love to share what they do. I've met so many wonderful people through the magazine- I can't imagine it not being there!
I didn't create this card with the hop in mind- it was made just for fun! When it was done though, I knew it would be perfect! A perfect blend of trendy inspirations that I see everyday on the various PC&S websites. Everyone working there sparkles and shines just like the metallics and sequins. And, the bike represents the journey ahead...
The patterned papers and semi-opaque tag are from Pink Paislee's Bella Rouge collection. The bike is from a die I borrowed from my friend at the retreat I had a couple weeks ago. We cut it out of silver plastic sheets from Elizabeth Crafts- a tricky feat but we got it done! lol!
I love how the metallic sheet shines! Just like PC&S always will in my mind :) I hope all the people who work there go on to bigger and better things! I can't wait to see where life takes you!
If you're hopping along, the next stop is Karen Baker's blog. Pop over to see what she's made in honor of the magazine. Also, pop over to Taheerah's blog- she put this whole thing together and did a wonderful job! Thanks Taheerah for making it happen!
I hope you have time to hop along the list- it's a long one but so worth it! Thanks for stopping by here today :)
