Layout Catch-Up (and one for Jenny)

Oh, AND I finally got the book I've been published in!! I'm so pleased... there are at least 5 FULL PAGE images of my cards, and even a spread of 1 1/3 page of a digital layout. Whee!!! This is not my own stuff, this time, but in a book on scrapbooking (which is funny, because I'd only JUST started scrapping digitally at that point)--I contributed mainly lots and lots of cards which are scattered throughout the book. Here's the info: Scrapbook Asian Style! by Kristy Harris (of Far Flung Craft) (Tuttle Publishing, Singapore: 2008). Coolio beansio! Those red calla lilies are one of my cards... front cover, no less! *happy dance*

And in layout news, I haven't done much recently because I've been working on some new stuff for me, plus I had to write a bunch of articles for Scrapbook News & Review. But here are three with Vinnie Pearce's new stuff at Catscrap: a collab kit with Kitty Design called "Wishes and Dreams", and a very cool kit whose depths I haven't even come close to fully exploring called "Buckets of Sunshine" (which we need right about now, heh. Though we didn't lose power at least!). The first one is for Jenny, she'll know why... ;)

And finally, "You Are My Sunshine" (this is my mother):

  1. Congrats, Heather! I love your stamp designs - they are just beautiful. Perhaps you might consider brush sets for those of us who have carpal tunnel instead of inky fingers.

    Silly note - the post-bot blocker word is "bunbare" :)!

  2. Congrats Heather! I am so excited for you.

  3. OK -- a couple of comments...

    1. HUGE CONGRATS on the publishing! From one front cover gal to another! It does bring a smile, and I'm smiling for you right now! That calla lily card is fab.
