Welcome to Magazine Monday! Did everyone have a good weekend? I hope you found some time to 1). go out and buy our new special issue Go-to Sketches, 2). sit down and devour this magazine and 3). create your own projects from some 66 inspiring sketches.
If you did get crafty this weekend, why not submit some of your entries? Just a reminder that our submissions deadline for our Holiday Cards & More, Volume 5 issue is tonight at midnight (MDT). Click HERE for more information!
Even though our Go-to Sketches Week is officially over, I’m going to squeeze in one more day of sketch-filled fun. Three weeks ago we launched our first ever Go-to Sketch Challenge. With sketches from Paper Crafts Go-to Gals Teri Anderson and Maren Benedict as inspiration, submissions poured in for all occasions. We picked these four entries (two per sketch) as our final winners!
Editor’s Note: Vanessa was just published for the very first time in our May/June 2010 issue! Not only that, her Rainbow of Butterflies Card (p. 74) made the cover! Click HERE to see cover girl Vanessa literally jumping for joy when her issue arrives in the mail.
Congratulations, ladies! Each of you has won either a one-year subscription to Paper Crafts or the special issue of your choice. I’ll be contacting you shortly to discuss your prizes. If you’re interested in seeing all the projects from our first Go-to Sketch Challenge, please visit our gallery HERE.
Wanna join the fun and participate in our next challenge? We just launched our bling-inspired April Gallery Challenge last Monday. This two-week challenge will run through midnight (MDT) on Monday, April 19. Click HERE to upload your sparkly entries today!
P.S. It’s time to announce each of the three winners from Cath’s Go-to Gals & Friends Blog Hop post, Kim Kesti’s Over the Top Inspiration post, Jennifer’s Behind the Lens post and my It’s a Sketch World After All post!

Would you believe that 98% of our readers – at least the ones who respond to our annual survey – are stampers at some level? I think it’s the versatility of stamping that is so appealing. After all, you can make background paper, stamp a sentiment, color a stamped image with markers and do it all in a rainbow of colors, too.
For this year’s Stamping Royalty Card Contest, we asked for card designs in five categories (see the full list below) and got hundreds and hundreds of entries. The 15 lucky winners got a fantastic prize package worth over $200, plus a tiara and custom-made tote bag.
Although we thought these techniques would be challenging, it turns out that it just brought out the very, very best in so many stampers. I was especially impressed with Yolanda Beltran’s winning entry, the Happy Spring Card. She took this plain outline stamp called Snow Village by Stamps ‘N More…
…and turned it into a lovely spring scene with markers and some detail work.
