Popular Crafts Feature!

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 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...
