Attention, Attention ~ I have an announcement!

Drum roll please....... I have some very exciting news that I want to share with you today!!!

I was asked to be on the "Closed Design Team" for the "Perfect Printing Pouch"! Whoooo Hooooo!!! Oh yeah! Let's have a Party! Oh Yeah!

Now, if you have been reading my blog for awhile you know one of my favorite products is the Perfect Printing Pouch! (If you didn't catch that post - click here to read it!)

Well the owner (Amy) has asked me to be on her design team!!! How exciting and cool is that?!?! But - if you are like me - you are thinking "What is a closed design team?" LOL

Basically this is the deal.... Manufactures of scrapbooking products have their own design teams. People that they think are creative, talented and have the ability to "showcase" their products. These design team members are pre-picked out and on a list for that manufacture.

Then, it seems, that magazines and publications send out a casting calls to the manufacturer's. These casting calls are looking for layouts to be publish in upcoming issues of that publication. The manufacture gives that information to their design team and then the design team member's submit their work (in which they have used that manufacturer's product) to be considered for publication!!!!

I have heard from a few of my friends who actually have been published - that while scrapbooking magazines do have their own design teams, and the do also do "open" casting calls (this is where the ask their readers to submit). The majority of published works are from manufacturer's closed design teams!!!

Needless to say - I am VERY HONORED that Amy even asked me to be on her team! Who knows... maybe one day I will actually be published! LOL

(Of course I have to throw this side note in. Hubby said - "What is the big deal to be published?" And I was like, Ummm, Hmmmm, well...... it is good for the ego?!?!?! Bahahahahaha!!!)

Well - there you have it! That was my announcement for today.... now I am off to hopefully stop being a chicken and get this KNK installed, hooked up and functioning correctly!!!

I also need to finish up a file that I plan to share here on the blog soon with you my readers!!!!!

So until next time!

This is a great file! Although I have downloaded it, I haven't had the chance to use it yet. There is just so much going on here right now. Keep up the great work. Thanks for being so generous with your files. I hope to be able to start creating and sharing a few of my own soon. I just got the create n cut software and am really loving it! :) Hopefully things will calm down here in a week or two and I can start scrapping again. Again, THANKS!!

Wow, Lori!! Congratulations on your invitation. How exciting!! Good luck with your new "toy". The KNK was super intimidating to me, as I'd never used a cutter of any sorts before. However, I'm fairly comfortable with at least the basics after just a few short months! I have much, much, much to learn yet, but I won't be investing in another cutter for quite some time! Thanks for sharing your life and ideas with us!!

There is no doubt in my mind that with your talent, creativity and enthusiasm it won't be long until you are a published artist!
