2. Projects to include in our PageMaps column
Scrapbook & Cards Today’s sketches are always inspiring and this one is no exception. Download the sketch here, use it to create a scrapbook page and then submit it to us for possible publication. We encourage you to be creative with this sketch. Play with embellishments, mix up patterned papers, flip it, or copy the design exactly — it’s simply a blueprint to get your ideas flowing! This is for our autumn issue, so we ask that you keep seasonality in mind (as outlined in the themes above) when creating.
All submissions, including submissions for the PageMaps call, can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include a well-lit photo of your project, your name (as you’d like to see it published), address, phone number (your contact information won’t be printed), and a detailed supply list. Also, please ensure that all files sent are less than 1mb.
Compensation includes a fabulous box of product from our sponsors plus a copy of this issue of Scrapbook & Cards Today! You will receive the product and issue when your project is returned to you. We look forward to seeing your work!
Note: Unfortunately, we’re unable to respond to all who submit. You will only receive an email if a project is being requested. However, please know we always value your submissions and appreciate your support.
This call ends June 30th, 2018!
