Farewell Paper Crafts and Scrapbooking Magazine Blog Hop


Hello everyone!!  I’m here today to say farewell and thank you to Paper Crafts and Scrapbooking Magazine.  You should be arriving from the talented Samantha Mann’s blog.  If this is your first stop you’ll want to begin at the talented Jennifer McGuire’s blog so that you don’t miss out on any of the fun, fabulous creations we are sharing today.

Saying goodbye, is never easy, especially when its your foundation that’s moving.  A couple of weeks ago, an announcement was made that Paper Crafts and Scrapbooking would be closing their doors.  This decision hit the crafting community really hard.  This magazine has been around to provide guidance and inspiration.  Without them, what will we do?

My first subscription to the magazine was back in 2000, when I started crafting for my son’s teachers and family members.  The hard copy was amazing.  Tons of inspiration on each page.

I love learning about different techniques and what supplies I needed to buy.   I regret not submitting any of my projects for publication.  I use to say next time.  My mom used to say don’t put off what you can do today for tomorrow.  Those words are so powerful now, because I will never have the opportunity to do it now.

So I’m here to send my warmest thank you for such an awesome publication.

Take a look at the card I created for this hop:

Thank you and farewall

I went with clean and simple with a white on white look with a pop of color.

So what do you think?  I really love how the ink is coming from the top left and spilling down to the thanks die cut.  I chose blue because that’s how I feel but this card is far from sad.

I just want to say THANK YOU to Paper Craft and Scrapbooking Magazine, and all of the people who worked to bring us a fantastic magazine.  THANK YOU, for feeding my addiction to craft making.  You will be truly missed.  What are we suppose to do without?

The next person on this hop is Jess Moyer!! You will love what she has in store for you.

    • Hey Jess!! Thank you for your sweet comment. Yes, this magazine will really be missed. I think its interesting that we both used blue to flow down our card towards the focal point. Nicely done.

  1. What a sweet and wonderful post. Written so beautifully too. And your card…where do I start? It is truly one stunning card and I believe it reflects how many of us are feeling today.
