Paper Crafts & Scrapbook Magazine Swan Song Bloghop

As a tribute to one of our favorite crafty magazines, many of us have joined together today for a farewell blog hop.  This is our sweet good bye to our friends at Paper Crafts & Scrapbook Magazine.  If you're hopping along you should have reached me from The Sweet Stamp Shop.   If you'd like to start at the beginning it starts here at Jennifer McGuire's Blog.   The theme of the hop is Friendship and Thanks and there's a rock star line up of designers with projects today.    

I've enjoyed reading Paper Crafts for so many years it's hard to explain what it's meant to me.  Just something that I suppose I took for granted.   Before they went digital I would take the magazine everywhere - sports events, going to pick up the kids from school and even vacation.  I used to love pouring over the pages flipping through the pages and dog earing the projects I wanted to case. Once I started blogging they helped me gain more confidence in my crafting.  I found their blog and started playing at Moxie Fab.  It opened a whole world to me.  I was amazed at all the different projects that evolved from the same Trigger Target. The next step was publication!  It was such a thrill to see my name in print.  My first publication was Paper Crafts Holiday Cards and More - Fall 2012.  I had made several projects, but only one was accepted.  Wow - what a first!  My project - A Note From Santa made the cover!  I just got bit by the publishing bug!   LOL!

I made two projects today featuring a fox.    The first is completely paper pieced.   
The second is copic colored - sweet and simple. 
The next stop on the hop is the fabulous  Emily Branch!

Thanks for stopping by!  I know we'll all miss the publication - it opened a  whole world of crafting to me.   I've met so many wonderful friends through the on line community Paper Crafts created.  How can I thank them for all this?   Wishing them all the best.
