Hello friends! If you happened to stop by the Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking blog last week, you may have read a little something about the newest special issue to hit newsstands. (Yes, newsstands. Our special issues are all in print, for you to hold in your lovely little hands!) Simple Patterns for Paper Crafting & Scrapbooking is here!
So I was pretty darn exited to see this issue, because the designers worked really hard on this. The magazine is chock full of inspiring projects, plus sketches and diagrams to make it easy for you to use your stash and whip up a LOT of projects.
Each set of coordinating projects was created using a limited amount of supplies. You'll find cutting instructions, and simple directions for getting card sets, layouts, tags, and even three-dimensional projects from an allotment of paper. If you don't have the paper shown, that's OKAY - just apply those cutting instructions to the goodies you DO have! I was excited to see my projects in this issue, because I have a 12x12 layout in there! I'm trying to put my scrapbooker hat back on more often, and dive into the photo albums of pictures I have. It's kind of exciting!
So friends, I came back from our editorial board meeting in Utah with an EXTRA COPY of this issue! I would love to send it to one of you!
