I'm a cover girl!

Here's the cover for the latest edition of Papercraft Inspirations, on sale today in the UK. See the main card? The jolly little santa? Well, that's MINE! I am ridiculously excited to be the main designer on the cover............be sure to look for it in the shops.

Here's a fabric card, I haven't made one of those for a while. I have had this Oriental fabric hanging around for ages, but this is the first time I've used it. The leaf round-the-page punch is by Martha Stewart, and the base card is gemstone from Jo-Anns
She's not exactly a raving beauty is she? Still, the whole effect is quite striking I think. The metal brad has a Asian type motif on it.

I am still working away at those videos.............I think I have one for every day next week, when my next blog candy starts on Tuesday 2nd November. Only one prize this time, but what a prize..................one of my faithful followers is going to be very happy with this

eiyiyi said...

WooHoo .... congrats on making the cover! Not a surprise to me since I think everything you do is cover worthy. Your asian card brought back many found memories of our time in Japan ... lots of the art and fabric uses that same type of face. Apparently there really is a very big difference in Eastern and Western ideas of beauty. The brad you used is a replica of a 5 yen coin. hugs, eileen

Deb said...

congrats on making the cover, no surprise, your santa is fabulous! love your oriental card too! hugs Debx
