It's safe to say...

That I didn't get chosen as a "Stamping Royalty" finalist for Paper Crafts magazine. That's okay... I just may continue to try. Last year, in 2009, I made a New Years resolution, and it was to actually send in some creations (scrap layouts and cards) to try and be considered for publication. I wasn't successful in 2009, so the same resolution was made in 2010. I have tried... and still, no dice! Boo! So, I think it's safe to say, these items I sent in didn't get picked (yet) and so I will share them here, with you...
Thinking of you...Birthday...
Thank You...
Christmas/Season's Greetings...

Love...Have a fantastic evening, we are grilling out! I'll post my Christmas layout tomorrow...


  1. No worries Amanda--I have never been picked for anything either. I have submitted for several design teams and contests and NADA! And your work is amazing--you don't need anyone to tell you that to validate it :) Love ya!

  2. Oh no! Keep trying though, your creations are so beautiful, you will definitely be successful!

    I love all of these!

  3. I would take any of these anytime! I love my turtle card from you, I'm going to get it framed! Love you! EM

  4. Obviously it is rigged!! Don't get down, you are super talented! Hang in there!

  5. I always hate opening PC and CK and seeing the SAME people. You stuff is always publish worthy!!! (Maybe you are too over qualified in the area of greatness :) We love you :)

  6. well miss amanda, i can see IMMEDIATELY what the publication problem is: clearly the mags are afraid that if they publish these DIVINE & original cards allllllll the other cards will look a bit sad in comparison!!! let's face it, you're just TOO GOOD!!! :) :) :)

    (seriously missus...these are FAB!!! remember, the mags are picking based on what their themes are for each issue & what cards have already been commissioned from sponsors, etc; so when they go to "fill in" with reader cards they need stuff to blend in...w/o being too similar to what they have. i can say with absolute confidence that NO ONE could reject these for cause...just keep sending in and you will GET THERE i am sure!!!)
