Papercraft Submissions!

 One of my New Years resolutions this year was to try and get a card published in a magazine so I recently entered four cards into the  Paper Craft Stamp It! Cards vol 9 call .  Unfortunately they were not chosen so I am sharing two of them with you.

The top monochromatic card is eligible for this months Hero Arts Challenge so I am going to enter it there.

























This is the second card I sent, Its a CAS design, I think I need to study the magazine a bit closer to try and understand the style they are after.

Its the start of my half term break and I plan lots of crafting (Yipee)  Have a great weekend.

I love both cards, Sally, especially the first one! I think you got something great going in the card submission. The first attempt is always the hardest. Now that you got your feet wet, you may as well jump in the next time around! Don't ever give up as long as you are willing and passionate about it! I wish you SUCCESS!!HUGS!

Sally these are gorgeous! I love your style be you don't change just for a magazine, diversity is great! I love how you colored the butterfly!

Both cards are beautiful. It seems so many great cards get rejected by PC magazine. Why don't you try submitting to Stamper's Sampler or Take Ten. Both require stamping in some form for cards or projects while PC is oftentimes just die cuts and embellishments. Lately I've seen so many cards that aren't "artsy" as a lot of people think the magazines are.

You are not alone, and don't let it get you down. Just keep submitting your beautiful creations Sally! I definitely get the feeling that they like the more CAS designs, you're right. I've tried to understand the whole process better but I just can't! Sometimes I am disheartened that I often see the same names over and over, and to be honest it does make me wonder. However, I am not prepared to feel disheartened about my card making because I believe that what I do is good and it makes me happy. So, I'm not going to get stressed about it, just keep on trying! I love your work!

So nice that you have some time off, Sally! I've missed visiting blogs, and I loved coming here today and seeing these beautiful cards! Love them both! Good for you that you're submitting cards! If it were up to me, I would have picked them both! Hugs! :)

These are beautiful cards Sally - like someone said, keep submitting! (Or give the Stampers Sampler a try)

Me too! I think your cards are beautiful, and although I imagine it's discouraging not to get chosen, kudos to you for continuing to submit. I'm not quite brave enough (yet) to give it a shot! These two are simply lovely - I really adore the butterfly :)

Sally, I think these are wonderful, if these are the rejects I can't imagine what the ones they accepted would be like. Love them both!
