I’m back with the exciting news I mentioned yesterday… my first ever magazine feature goes on sale today, in Popular Crafts!
You can even see a little photo of my project on the front cover – the feature is a tutorial for how to create a 3D scrapbooking page, like my ‘1st Trip to London’ layout which you may have spotted on a previous post here.
When I blogged about this layout before, I was saying how gutted I was that I hadn’t got through in the Scrapbook Magazine’s Scrapbooker of the Year competition. But when I blogged about the layouts I entered, it led to me being spotted by Popular Crafts and invited to feature (I’d replied to a tweet of theirs on Twitter and they popped by my blog to check it out). So anyone else who gets knocked back, I just have to say – don’t give up!
Here’s a little peek of the feature inside the mag, it’s three pages long but I’ve just photographed the first two pages:
So if you’d like to know how to put a page like this together, then go and buy yourself a copy of Popular Crafts! You can learn more about the magazine and join in with all kinds of swaps and chats on their website http://www.popularcrafts.com.
Thank you to everyone who commented on that previous post, with kind words to encourage me to keep going. I’m so grateful to you for reading and commenting, I love that blogging helps me interact with such lovely people!
I hope you all have a nice Friday night planned. I’m going out for a bit of driving practice later, as my practical test is fast approaching…
