Get Published- Volume Five

Hey Y'all!!!

Happy Saturday and hope all is well. Tenia here from Jazzy Paper Designs giving y'all the 411 on how to get published!! This post is a little special today because I want to tell y'all why I submit and hope to get y'all encouraged to do the same.

Why I submit to Publication Calls.....(In no particular order)

1. It is FUN!!! No stress here....just all in FUN!! Notice how I stress the word FUN. It is suppose to be FUN and if it is not bueno....true story.

2. I love to submit to ALL types of magazines. In some magazines if they don't use my creations they sent it to charities so I feel matter what! :)

3. I love being challenged. Some of the magazine calls these days are cray cray challenging but I believe that makes you a better artist. You start thinking "Outside the Box" and stuff.... and that's a great thing!

4. I LURVE to submit using the newest and greatest product (Sweet Stamp Shop....of course)!! These days magazines stress that you use the newest and greatest products and Sweet Stamp Shop has the COOLEST and most UNIQUE stamps around for that!! You know if you want to submit using Sweet Stamp Shop stamps here are a few that I think that would totally shine in magazines:
There is NOTHING like this stamp set on the market. Magazines LURVE new, fun(punny sentiments!!) and innovative stamps and this one for sure would totally ROCK in magazines!!

Shapes of all kinds are the rage right now and this set would look AWESOME in ANY of the leading crafty magazines!!!

5. Meeting new crafty friends(IRL too) and getting to see their AWESOME work in magazines!! That is just RAD!! That is all......nuff said!!

6. There is nothing like seeing your work in a magazine!! I still feel like it is the "first time" being published and I just have a sense of pride and it just makes me feel happy and proud.

7. There is NOTHING to lose!! If I submit to a certain call and it doesn't "fit" for the magazine at that worries!!! I use my creations for another magazine calls or I will have cards for my "stash" to give to family or friends!!

8. I am the type of person that LURVES to take risks!! I AM the Nike slogan (Just Do It!)......I have been told.....hee hee!! Y'all just gotta submit.....Just DO It!! I sooooooo stressed DO because you need to just "DO"!!

Speaking of "Sweet" Getting Published.........check this OUT (Yayness for Jennifer....Woot Woot!!)!!
