“Sail Away” Quilling Card Published in CardMaker Magazine, May 2010

Published by at 3:21 pm under Quilling News

sail-away-quilled-cardI have been sitting on this news for several months now, but the May issue of CardMaker Magazine finally arrived in my mailbox yesterday and my quilled Father’s Day card, Sail Away, is featured on page 18 in their Quill It Easy section. Needless to say I am thrilled to see my card in print, and yes, I do plan on purchasing an extra copy of the magazine so I can frame the article for my workroom.   🙂 

My card isn‘t the only one featuring quilling in this issue, however.  Alli Bartkowski shares a lovely card perfect for that special sister, and Ann Martin has designed a handsome Father’s Day card that could be used for any occasion simply by changing the sentiment.
If you are not familiar with CardMaker Magazine, I encourage you to seek it out at newsstands, or, better yet, order a subscription.  I was talking to Ann Martin earlier today and she said that, “Tanya [the editor] is great about including quilling in every issue – as far as I can tell, it’s the only U.S. papercraft magazine that features it regularly.”  If you are eager to see this trend continue, I encourage you to write a letter to the editor and let Tanya know how much you appreciate seeing quilling in the magazine, and support the magazine by ordering a subscription for yourself or your crafty mother, sister, friend, etc.
On a personal note …..
I would like to thank Alli Bartkowski for taking the time to talk to me at the 2009 NAQGCON held in Tampa last year.  She encouraged me to submit a card design to CardMaker Magazine and for that I will always be grateful.
Alli has a new blog, Quilling with Alli, full of wonderful quilling projects.
Ann keeps a close eye on the paper art community and her blog posts on All Things Paper are a constant source of inspiration.

    Thanks for sharing your book. I live in Brazil and I love quilling. I am setting up a basic lesson in quilling my blog and most appropriately, put a link to your blog informing the availability for download of your book.

    I just ran across your site today. I’m fascinated by quilling but have yet to try it. I’ve been following Ann’s blog, all things paper and one of these days I’m going to dive in and give it a try. I just love your father’s day card, very creative. congratulations on making it in the magazine.

    I love the material you used here. I am trying to find some unique card making kits for the holidays.

    Hi Charlotte! Thanks for visiting my blog and for your kind words. Congrats on getting published – this is a sweet little boat!

    Its funny because I brought a Klutz quilling book a few months ago and had forgotten about it until yesterday when I was watching a Martha Stewart episode and they had some quilling on there. Then when I was thrifting today I came across the quilling kit! I’m definately going to try now!!
