So, what’s fashionable this season? I know you’ve been wondering…
Well, lucky for you, I’ve got my finger on the pulse of everything trendy and wonderful for this season.
Pantone’s color of the year is Honeysuckle – a perfect shade for your springtime crafting projects!
Gingham is still going strong! Pick up some pink, red or black gingham ribbon to accent your next card!
And last but not least – yes – that’s right – Rejection is one of this season’s hottest looks!
Thankfully, you’ve come to the perfect place to find the latest, and most fabulous in rejected paper crafting projects!
After a UNBELIEVABLE response to the last Reject Blog Hop – I am here to host the 2nd Reject Blog Hop for all those beautiful creations that just missed making it into the Paper Crafts Magazine September/October Issue.
There were 925 submissions for this call – and only 80 spots!!!
That’s a 8.6% acceptance rate! YIKES!
In case you’re wondering, there are better odds…
– That you’ll be accepted to Harvard Business School – (or Hahvahd if your a Bostonian!)
– That two people in a group of 30 will have the same birthday – yes, I’m a numbers nerd like that!
– That Duke wins the NCAA Tournament (had to throw that in there!)
So back to the topic at hand – papercrafting!
This submission call was all about Carnivals, Canvas, Color and Creepy (I would have said “Circus” and “Halloween,” but that would have messed up my clever alliteration!)
I am SOOO EXCITED to say that TWO of my projects were accepted for publication!!!
There are still a couple that didn’t make the cut so I want to share them with you here:
This first card is one of my faves! I love the red and green together – without looking Christmassy at all!
The heart-shaped embellishment is made from scraps of canvas layered together – SUPER EASY!
Here’s another that you won’t be seeing on the pages of Paper Crafts – I love the simplicity of it!
