I've been stamping for over 20 years,
and have submitted in A LOT of Creations, and A LOT have NOT been
published. I started way back, when there was Rubber Stamper
magazine, Vamp Stamp News, and
before Take Ten.
Stampers Sampler had
a segment in every issue called Take Ten.
It was sopopular,
they created the Take Ten magazine.
was published once in VSN,
but got discouraged and quit sending.
I started getting closer to age 60, getting published was at the top
of my bucket list, so I started submitting again, and in
March 2014 I was published in Stampers Sampler 20th
Anniversary magazine. WHAT A RUSH!
You can see my cards here
That's all it took, to get hooked,. Now
I'm a submitting stamping addict, but I don't want an intervention. I
still get a rush every time I receive my complimentary copy. (By the
way...you don't know if you're published until you receive your comp
copy. I have had some cards show up almost 2 years after
What I've learned
Have you noticed in Take Ten
and Stampers Sampler, the cards shown on each page,
coordinate, or blend? I send 3-5 cards that have the same theme and
the colors compliment each other. Theme can be layout design,
technique, or all cat related, coffee theme, etc.
Both Take Ten, and
Stampers Sampler have “ a Different Point of View”
where you use one stamp to make several creations...I suggest
submitting 4-5 cards or tags
Both Take Ten, and
Stampers Sampler have a Tempting Template in each
issue. Here is a sample:
This year we hosted our 2nd Annual Be Brave Card Drive to support breast cancer awareness month. We asked all of you to join us by creating handmade inspirational cards to send to the Journey Station. And you did!!
We received 473 cards from Journey Coaches, customers and friends across the country. Whoo-hoo! Well over our 300 card goal.
These cards were given to breast cancer support groups to encourage patients to stay brave and strong. They will also be handed to patient caregivers and family members to thank them for their strength and support. Thank you so much to all who participated in this card drive. We appreciate the outpouring encouragement.
We hope you join us again next year for this great cause.
I sent 5 cards, and am so glad to be a part of this caring and sharing Fun Stampers Journey Community
