Congratulations to Megan Aaron for being our May cover girl!
We fell in love with the sweet soft romance of her layout.
Megan mixes vintage with modern supplies and techniques
beautifully. We are thrilled to feature her gorgeous work!
You, too, might see your creation on the cover, but you
have to submit first! All items submitted to article calls are
looked at, and the top eye-catchers are chosen by our Editors
and put in a voting poll for our crew to select the cover
winner. So get those layouts, cards and projects in everyone!
Take a second look at our front cover.

Design Notes: To create the flowers, I punched several of the
sized scalloped circles from an old book, inked the edges and sprayed them
glimmer mist. While they were still damp, I started with what would become
innermost petals and scrunched it sort of into a cone shape. Then I added
several more circles onto the outside in the same manner, scrunching each
little bit less. Finally I secured it with a brad, before covering the
a vintage button.
