Some summer publication work

Hi everyone!  I thought I would take a minute and share a couple cards that have been published lately. I don't always have a chance to post about publications, but with recent announcement of Borders going out of business, it had me kinda sad and thinking about magazines.  Print media is so important.  With the influx of the internet, it's easy to find inspiration online, but there is something so special about bringing a craft magazine to the park and browsing it leisurely on a sunny day!  Am I right?!?

This card is from the Summer issue of Paper Creations.  This card uses the Ippity Stamps set A Little Buggy.
This next card is from the June issue of Crafts n' Things.  This flower and sentiment are from Verve's Dream Big set and the delish striped twill ribbon is from Stamp Simply Ribbon store.
And last, I wanted to share this card from the Summer issue of Take Ten.  These flowers are from the Gina K Friendship's Garden set. 
 Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

  1. Beautiful - all of them. Think #2 is my fave, or maybe #1... LOL... congrats and thanks for sharing.

  2. Beautiful cards Michelle. I know what you mean, there is nothing like holding a magazine or real life card in your hands. The internet is great, but nothing like the real thing. I hope magazines continue to publish. I know there are a lot less now days. Continue on with your beauties!

  3. I agree Michelle, I love holding a book or magazine, turning the pages. I have tried the Nook and Kindle, they are kinda cool, but nothing beats having the real thing.
    Love your cards, just beautiful. I love when reading a magazine and I see a name of someone that I "know", it's so exciting.

  4. These are FABULOUS! LOOOOVE what you did with A Little Buggy!!

  5. Congrats on the publications Michelle!
    Fabulous cards! You're right about the magazines - I love browsing through mine and prefer the 'real thing' as opposed to on-line versions.

  6. Congrats on being published, Michelle. Your cards are beautiful...

  7. Congratulations on your publish, Michelle! I agree with you, my craFTING magazines are something I just can't let go of. I love sitting down in the recliner with my Paper Crafts, Cards or Cardmaker magazines. I get excited when I go to the mailbox and one of my new issues has arrived. Love your cards and that last one is my favorite!!! I will be casing that card. *smile* Clean, simple, pretty. TFS

  8. Yay! Way to go girl! Congrats on the pubs! Such beautiful cards hun :)

  9. Love this yellow and white card. The flowers are great!!!
