Hello! Happy October! Are you suffering from a World Card Making Day hangover this AM? What a fun celebration we had! I hope you enjoyed the ideas shared and walked away inspired.
If you’re still seeking project idea and inspiration, our Fall 2015 issue of Scrapbook & Cards Today is here for you. I’m here to give you just a taste of what this hearty issue has in store.
10 Most Wanted
Being a product nut, I’m always drawn to this column, where we highlight some of the latest and greatest on the market. Have you had a chance to peruse the ten items being featured this month? What’s your favourite? What types of products would you like to see more of in future issues? I’m personally quite taken with the Harvest Wood Mounted Stamps by Pebbles.
Marla used them to create this delightful ensemble. I want to get them and create recipe cards for my family this Thanksgiving.
Make it Mini
I just adore this feature, which includes a variety of gratitude mini albums. With both pre-made album options and DIY choices, you’re sure to find an album that speaks to you. I just adore creating albums and cards from large shipping tags, so this album from Maggie Holmes very much catches my eye.
But it’s absolutely impossible to pick a single favourite in this feature. Every album has something wonderful to offer. On the pre-made end of the spectrum, I find something new and wonderful to love about this design by Nancy Damiano each time I look at it. She used the Memory Dex by Heidi Swapp—love it!
Creative Card Techniques
Jennifer McGuire does it again. This time her technique focus is on heat embossing and she has three approaches to taking this trick to the next level. I can’t wait to try the technique demonstrated on this card—colour-gradiant embossing. Isn’t her embossed background attractive?
We love hearing from you! As I mentioned before, I’d be interested to know what kinds of products you like to see featured. Are you a paper geek? Maybe stamps are more your thang. I’d also like to know what types of techniques you find intriguing. Is there something in particular you’d like to learn more about? Believe it or not, we’re about to begin editorial planning for the 2016 year, and your thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Feel free to leave them as a comment here or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. You bet we’ll read them. Thanks and happy Magazine Monday!
