  5. DD ladies, you are all so fabulously talented with your cameras too! PLEASE consider submitting your photos to the current CK photo calls too! To see all of CK's calls, go to Creating Keepsakes website and click on Magazines and then Readers Submissions.
    (I would put the direct link up, but I think a filter will remove it from this forum.)

  8. Great! Thanks for letting me know, Katie!!
    Go HERE to see what all CK is looking for! PLEASE don't be afraid to submit! I have had CK reject (such a harsh word!) LOs that I made & photos that I took. It never hurts to try! The more you submit, the more they will recognize your work and name!

    PS There is a tip list you can follow to increase your chances of getting published.

    Congratulations Amy! Your stunning pages are popping up in all sorts of places!!
    Are they still contacting people? I'd given up waiting to hear!

    Thank you Esther and Katie! I had just about given up too and then out of the blue I got this email today. Someone suggested submitting and then forgetting about it and if you do get picked up - it's a nice surprise. That's how I felt today. I did spend a good bit of time submitting a page for almost every call they had. You just never know what they are looking for. I hope they contact you Esther - your pages are terrific!!!

    Congrats Amy! I bet they picked your layout so quickly!! I didn't receive a response, but I'll keep trying! Its like they say, "try, try again!" Can't wait to see your lo in the magazine!

    Thanks Kim! Your LO's would look awesome in print so do keep trying. We have to remember we are competing with traditional paper scrappers so there is not that many slots available in each issue for digi pages. Plus going to fewer issues each year makes it more difficult too to get picked up. I have been a big CK fan for so long(10 years plus) and have only had a handful of pages published.

    I submitted one too. I never submitted when I paper-scrapped, but for digi, there's really not reason not too.

    Maybe next time, right?

    Kelly - I remember submitting my paper pages and it wasn't so fun. I had the panoramic stitching program and it was such a pain to try to get the sides of the pages to meet up. This was before my digital camera days. Submitting digi pages is a lot easier! Hoping for an all digi publication one day to have more room for us digi girls!

    congrats, Amy!! That's awesome! I haven't submitted in the longest time... do you make new pages for the call or just submit what you had? There just isn't enough time in a day!

    Hi Anke - I sometimes make new pages for sketch calls, but I mostly use what I've already made. The Christmas calls came early to me this year. I guess it's time to start submitting Valentine pages now. It feels like I just made those!
