Some BIG News!

I mentioned I would be sharing some big news soon...this is the first of a few things in the months to come. I am REALLY excited to share that I have now officially been published! It is AMAZING to see my creations in print.
Make sure you pick up the fall issue of the Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine. A few months back, I submitted some Halloween cards. It was really strange making cards with a Halloween theme before summer started. Jackie, the editor of the Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine, was amazing to deal with;I just love her enthusiasm. I encourage you to send your submissions for her magazine calls.

I am a true Canadian at heart so it was really important to me to have my first published cards in a Canadian magazine!

You can find my card creations on page 105, it's called Spook-tacular Trio!







I didn't plan to share this news until tomorrow but I have some people who are contacting me already so I think it is only a matter of time before my fellow Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine subscribers receive their copy in the mail!

Because I love to stamp and you do too!
Alli

this is so cool! Way to go! They are a wonderful trio, I know it feels so odd to make cards off season. Glad you had a good time away...we did too...although my scrap table is calling me!

Oh my gosh. Big congratulations on being published. I just received my fall issue and saw your cards when I quickly flipped through it. They are just super and I am so happy for you. I live in Calgary, Alberta and have met Katharina Doyle several times as she lives just a couple of miles from my house. Both Jackie and Katharina are such warm, genuine and caring ladies in person!!
Hope you continue to submit your artwork! Jennifer
