Hello December!

Hey everyone! Can you believe it's already December? Time for wassail, Christmas tunes, and late night papercrafting sessions - not to mention all those holiday goodies! Yum!

Today, I'm especially excited for it to be December, because my cards are on the cover of the Winter 2010 issue of Take Ten magazine that hits newsstands today! What a lovely surprise to find a complimentary copy in my mailbox, since after LOTS of rejection, I'd pretty much given up hope of ever getting picked up for publication. Hooray for life's little surprises! Michelle has several Verve-a-licious cards in this issue, too, so double woot!

Here's one of the cards from my card set that was published. The magazine scans don't quite capture the dimension and texture like a photo does. :)



What's in It?
Stamps: Hearts on Fire (Verve)
Paper: Real Red, Basic Black, Whisper White (SU!), Tahitian Princess (Bazzill)
Ink: Onyx Black, Crimson Red (Versafine), Broken China (Ranger Distress)
Accessories: Labels 4 (Nestabilities), grosgrin ribbon (SU!), black rhinestones (Kaiser Craft), Swiss Dots embossing folder (Cuttlebug)

  4. I saw this this cover the other day and was wondering who was showing off their Verve so nicely and lone behold is is the Queen Diva herself :D Yeah!! Lovely set of cards and the perfect advertisement for Verve! Lucky for the mailman he doesn't deliver to our door but rather the box as I'm very impatiently stalking my mailbox...LOL!

  19. Congratulations Julee. That is so cool. I can't believe this is your first publication - I think your designs and projects are always amazing. (I guess take 10 means 10 minutes to make and your goodies might take a wee bit longer - LOL) It's always awesome to see Verve products and Verve Diva's published!! WTG.
