Just In Time for the Holidays: Three Christmas Cards Revealed

Hello, people!

Matilda
Tracy’s Marketing Maven

Did you miss me?

Come on, admit it. I won’t tattle.

Good. Now I can begin.

Today, I’ll present three Christmas cards to round out Tracy Campbell’s Premier Collection. Once you’ve finished gawking, I’ll reveal more about her artistic journey, and then—-.

Hee hee, you have to wait!

Drum roll, puh-leeze!

I present the final three greeting cards.


Greeting Card #108 – Musical Angel
Category: Christmas, Birthday, Celebration, New Baby
Inside: “Let’s Celebrate!”

Okay, okay. The musical angel card suits more than just Christmas. I’m trying to save you some moula! ๐Ÿ™‚ ‘Cuz if I don’t—-, I’ll be out of a job! Ack!

Greeting Card #109 – A Bobbin & Buttons Christmas
Category: Christmas
Inside: “May the Spirit of Christmas light up your home! Merry Christmas!”

And last, but certainly not least…

Greeting Card #110 – Greetings
Category: Christmas
Inside: “My arms are outstretched to send you the very best! Merry Christmas!”

Ho Ho Ho!

I’ll keep this next part short and sweet, just like me! ๐Ÿ™‚

Tracy’s artistic travels led her to Regal Gifts (a Canadian mail-order company). And wouldn’t you know it, Tracy managed to wrangle an interview, and then they hired her to design wrapping paper and gift enclosure cards for their Country Charm Collection. (At the age of twelve, she used to sell Regal products by poundin’ on doors in her Northern Ontario neighborhood.)

A Country Charm Collection

Tracy’s confidence soared. She submitted additional designs to a well-known calendar company in Markham, Ontario. Rejected, she sulked, unaware God was still at work.

A few months later, Tracy received a phone call. Her name had been passed on to Zebra Studios, who at the time published calendars for the Calendar Club. By the way, Zebra Studios made Tracy feel like family. Awesome people!

Flabbergasted isn’t the right word to describe how she felt. Anyway, she interviewed for a job, and was hired to design a babyโ€™s first year keepsake calendar.

The following year, Tracy designed a twelve-month folk art calendar for the same company.

Both calendars sold like hot cakes in mom-and-pop book stores, Chapterโ€™s book stores in Canada, and Barnes & Noble in the U.S.

Okay. I’ve kept you waiting long enough.

When, where, and how you can you get your hands on Tracy Campbell’s bee-ee-ee-u-ti-ful Premier Collection?

Outstanding question, but you’ll have to stay tuned for another post! Gotcha! ๐Ÿ™‚

Before I fly away, hereโ€™s another glowing endorsement weโ€™ve received.

โ€œI remember the day my package of cards arrived in the mail. I tore into it like a little kid on Christmas morning. Oh, and I wasn’t disappointed. The warmth of these cards just jumped off the paper and into my heart. They are so very beautiful and I canโ€™t wait to share.” โ€“ Terrol

Forever yours,

Matilda!

  2. Oh Matilda…with Tracy’s wonderful talents, you will remain ’employed’ for many years to come.

  3. ….but pretty please Matilda……spill the news on how we can get these………Hurry !!!!

    • Susanna, I love the wacky words you come up with, “gorgeousness” being one of them.
      “My Whimsical Shop” will be opening very, very, very soon!
      And I love reading your enthusiastic comments! Thank you! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Thanks for your lovely comments, Karen! Hope you’re painting, now that you’re back from your long vacation. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Thanks, Judy!. That’s two vote now for the bobbin and button tree. ๐Ÿ™‚
      Hmm…maybe I should’ve put up a poll.

  4. Wow! You are super talented. Your cards are very cute. I’m so excited for all that’s happening for you. Glad I mentioned my not receiving your emailed posts! I should have thought to check your site. I agree about the button tree, but the gingerbread man star is my fave ๐Ÿ™‚

    • I honestly have to say my talent is a gift from above. When I finish a piece. I sit back and wonder did I really draw and paint that piece? I’m so glad you asked. I was having technically difficulties a few weeks back, so perhaps your email got kicked out. That’s me sad :-). But the important thing is that you’re back! Yeah! ๐Ÿ™‚ Even though their my designs, I have my favorites too.
