Paper Crafts Giveaway!!

I recently got my copies of Paper Crafts June/July issue, and the special Stamp It Cards issue in the mail. I loved flipping through them and seeing hundreds of amazing creations, many from ladies that I am honored to know! (Keep reading...I have a giveaway further down in the past!)

I am in the scallops section of the June/July issue of Paper Crafts. The whole issue is fabulous, but oh man....the scallop section just blew me away! So many gorgeous creations....I was blown away looking at them! This is my contribution to the scallop article.

I would have never thought I would have been in this special issue ever. Stamping does not come naturally to me, and I end up trashing more stamped creations than I ever keep. But, I some how ended up getting two cards picked up for this issue.

Then I looked closer at the cover, and read "158 creative ideas for EVERY skill level". Tee hee hee...my cards were surely picked up for the beginner stampers out there! :) This is one of them...as you can see- very simple.

Now comes the giveaway part! I ended up with three copies of each book. I keep a copy for myself, and give a copy to my mom. This leaves me with one copy of each book! If you would like me to RAK you with one of them (and probably some other random goodies!)...just leave me a comment telling me which issue you think would be your favorite! I will pick the winners on Friday...so be sure to leave a comment soon!

I also did two cards for the CPS sketch this week! Wow...so proud of myself. Here are some sneak peeks of them!


That is about it for me today! Be sure to leave a comment if you want to win my Paper Crafts RAK!

Happy Hump Day (just for you Kimberly),
~Lea

  1. Hi Lea! Super congrats on both issues!!! which would be my favorite? hmmm, while the Stamp It would be fun, since it's your first and that your amazing talent was in the 'beginner's' section and that is a rarity (yeah, what's up with THAT?), I would love a chance for the Paper Crafts mag! LOL, love ya! Janet

  8. I am so glad you told me about your blog - I don't know how I missed it but I'm adding it to my reader ASAP!!! I love your cards for the CPS sketch, and congrats on getting published in the magazine!!! I love both of the cards that you submitted. That little wedding card is just perfect!!! Anyway, I wouldn't mind getting one of these magazines and I think I would be partial to the Stamp It one because I can't get it here in Altus. The Paper Crafts one is available here and I actually just got a new subscription to it too. Can't wait to get it! Anyway, thanks for a great chance, and CONGRATS!!!

It surely must be every crafters dream to appear in one of these mags...I love them! i would LOVE to have a copy of the Stamp It mag...I love rubber stamps for many reasons.

  29. I admire your cards at CPS all the time. Today I thought I would check out your blog! Congrats on the cards. I, like you, am a BEGINNER stamper. I would love to have a copy of the Stamp book to try to learn more creative ways to use my stamps!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Wow! Congratulations. You must be proud. I have not even flipped a page of either of these books, so if you pick me, you can pick your favorite and send it to me ;-)

  31. Lea, I have multiple copies of those too, so I'm not in the drawing; but I just wanted to tell you that those CPS cards are totally awesome--you ROCK!

  32. Congratulations on being published! I would like either magazine, but if I chose one it would probably be Stamp It. Thanks,

  36. i would love a copy of the june/ july issue! your work is always darling!

  37. Thank you for the lovely comment you left on my blog and for the invite to yours. Wow I love your cards and where you got the idea that you are no good at stamping I really don't know!!!

    That pink card is so beautiful - its simplicity is just sheer talent.
    I'm in the UK so neither of those mags are available here and I suppose it might cost you a bomb to post to here but if it was possible I would love the stamp it one - it sounds brilliant.
