paper crafts magazine goodbye

I have worked for Paper Crafts and Scrapbooking magazine since 2006. It is going to be really really different without them as part of my daily life. From creating projects to writing blog posts, chatting on Facebook, exchanging emails, it will be be strange moving forward.

But, it is not all about me, it is really a community that will be gone. A great group of paper crafting folks who really had fun together. Editors, contributors, even advertisers. I know we will each find our new niche and life will go on, but it is worth reflecting on and saying goodbye, for sure. The editors in particular: Jennifer leading the pack, Kerri keeping us organized, P. Kelly rooting for the underdog, quiet but feisty Holly, Brandy who always had a kind word, Jennafer M. who first invited me to Ed Board, Stacy who has always had my back, Susan who never thought there was anything I could not do and most of all Cath, my partner in crime, trend watching and the one who first singled me out and has never left me out since. (Now, I am gonna cry).

Now that is off my chest, I am going to share a few of my favorite cards that either have been published, or were on the schedule to appear in the magazine. They are pretty much all Kesti style (as the editors would call it).


Gold and a little collage thrown in for fun. (Love this background from Neat and Tangled).

My last Moxie Fab, and one of my favorites.

A direct ink to paper experiment. Love the yellow!


And, a blast from the past, one of my favorites of all time.

Thanks for taking a peek! All of the Go to Gals are posting today with some favorite projects, memories and more. (Links in my sidebar). Take a look and leave a comment, too. We love sharing our passion with you. Stick around, please!

  5. Your cards are fabulous, as always. I am just sad about PC. It has been my go-to publication for many years. I will miss it a lot. Fortunately, I still have a lot of blogs, including yours, to check in on. Thanks for all the lovely work you have put into PC and I’ll look forward to what you share in the future.
