Card Creations Vol. 12 Blog Hop + GIVEAWAY!

Hi and welcome to the Designer Blog Hop!

Hot off the press, the new special issue from Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking magazine, Card Creations Vol. 12 has arrived! AND it’s amazing!


Better than ever, this volume will definitely wow even the most advanced card maker while offering plenty of designs and techniques that beginners will love too. With tons of pages and bonus sketches, all the styles and inspiration for every occasion come together in this fabulous issue. To celebrate, we’re kicking things off with a good old blog hop! We’re excited to share with you projects that were inspired by sketches included in the magazine!

When I found this sketch in the back of the magazine I loved the cool lines…


…and it sparked the creation of this 8×10 artwork which I shrunk down in size to give as a card!


Now here’s the really great part! I have an extra issue of Card Creations Vol. 12 to give away to one of you! Just leave a comment here by Tuesday, March 11, 2014 to be entered in the drawing! Be sure to include your email address so I can contact you if you’re the lucky winner!
