Hi there! Hope your week is off to a great start! Last week, Paper Crafts magazine reached a new record – 2750+ submissions for an upcoming special issue, Go-To Sketches. 2750+ submissions for only 288 spots – crazy! That means there were a lot of cards that didn't make it into the magazine. So, I'm here today to share one of mine that didn't make the cut. This was based on Sketch #68.
While it's easy to be disappointed when a card doesn't get accepted, I've learned that it's best to focus on the positives – maybe another card DID get chosen or maybe you feel that you created some of your best work yet! There's never a negative to submitting and getting "rejected" because you always leave the experience with a handmade, one-of-a-kind card. What can be negative about that?
I'm really impressed with the way so many designers have joined together and are sharing their leftover cards from this latest submission process. One designer, Amber has even started a blog hop for designers to link their leftover cards. How fun!
Here's to making lemonade out of lemons and enjoying each other's work – leftover or not. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by!
