Craft Magazine Giveaway!

"Today you are you, that is truer than true.
There is no one alive who is youer than you."
-Dr.Seuss

As a Valentines Day gift to five lucky readers, I'm giving away one of each of the following issues:



Scrapbooks Trends - December 2008

This issue is packed with ideas for Friends, Christmas Gifts, Christmas, Christmas Mini Albums, Christmas Traditions, Simple Things, Hanukkah, and so much more! Check out the features on Award Winning Style, Real Life, Snapshots, One Amazing Album (which features twelve pockets + twelve memories from the past year), Stories To Tell, Class In Session, and of course Cards & Tags (Featuring doodled winter stamps, a flower cut from felt, and chipboard snowmen are just a few of the fun elements you'll find on these special holiday cards!) There is so much packed into this issue - you HAVE to have it!




Card Creations - Volume 6

Card Creations, Volume 6 is full of masterpieces. You'll see designers you know and love and many who are being published for the first time. There are cards full of techniques that will impress the recipient, and quick and easy varities for those days when you need a last-minute design. And best of all, you'll find cards for every occasion so you can create to your heart's content.




Somerset Memories - December/January 2009

There are many opportunities to capture special moments this time of year, and the December/January issue of Somerset Memories is here help! From paper doll art to chunky ATCs to pages of layouts, and mixed-media heritage artwork — there’s no shortage of ideas to ignite your muse!




Where Women Create - Winter 2008

Whether it’s art, food, music, written works or choreographed dances, extraordinary women know that the process of creating is as important as what ultimately gets created. That’s why extraordinary women pay attention to the details of their work spaces... making sure that they surround themselves with visually stimulating inspiration and unique organizational systems.
Where Women Create invites you into the creative spaces of the most extraordinary women of our time. Through stunning photography and inspirational stories, each issue of this quarterly magazine will nourish souls and motivate creative processes.



Paper Crafts - January/February 2009

It’s Paper Crafts magazine’s fifth birthday, and we want you to join the celebration! This issue is chock full of simple, cute, and stylish ways to wish a happy birthday to all of the special people in your life! And what is February without plenty of fabulous ideas for giving gorgeous and meaningful handmade cards for Valentine’s Day? We’ll show you how to incorporate playful quotes and trendy elements into each card that you make, and we’ll even inspire you to get out your decorative-edged scissors to create fun and easy up-to-date designs. You will LOVE what this issue has in store!

Just leave me a comment on this post by noon (CST) on Friday, February 13th your name will go into the randomizer!

:-)

Layla

*Edited on Sunday, February 8th- instead of giving all five magazines to one reader, I've decided to spread the love and send one magazine to five different readers. :-)

What a great collection of crafty magazines! Super giveaway and love your blog!

Cyndee Greene said...

Hi Layla~
I LOVE the quote from Dr Seuss at the beginning of this post! I want to make a sign w/ that on it. Do you know what book that came out of?
My dream is to have property on a ridgetop here. I want a place where people come to heal. But most of all, I want to foster teens. I had a vision a couple of months ago, where I was sitting in a circle of 30 young girls. Listening. Inspiring. Teaching them about their inner voice.
The other thing that I knew is that I need to learn how to scrapbook, because that is one thing these girls don't have. They don't have anyone that has taken pictures. Some of them arrive w/ a few clothes in a garbage bag. And that is all.
So it has been fun to be in blogland exploring all the blogs on scrapbooking.
I'm not sure why I shared all of this. I think it started w/ reading that quote & imagining that being somewhere in my home to remind the girls..to uplift them. It would even be fun to see what the page looks like that it is on. Thank you again Layla!

Joanne said...

Hi Layla -- Oh, how I would love to win this prize! I presently don't own any of these and am just starting to get involved with making my own cards and scrapbooking.

Kathy said...

Such a sweet thing to do. I love everything home, as well. Even before it was the "in thing", I was decorating, crafting, scraping, cooking and taking care of a modern home like I was from the 50's, but with equality. I was a "Shabby Eclectic" girl. In the 80's no one got it. Today everyone gets it and loves my style. I think you have great gifts to offer. Love your blog. Kathy

KJ said...

I love your blog
and giveaways too

to read cool "mags" from you.

If Dr. Seuss can rhyme so can we right? :o)
