coming soon …

with new columns from Donna and Tara and  LOTS of great ideas.
I got an "early" copy when I was in utah last Thursday and it’s a great issue!
hard to say, but I think my favorite article is one by Lain, which will also be the subject of our latest SS/BPS class. It’s a crash course in moving beyond chronology (notice I didn’t say leaving behind chronology, just expanding your vision to include some other approaches) and it’s good stuff. Here’s a hint at something fun from my column (I even cleaned out my sock drawer to make room!)

our latest special issue and dare I say our best ever?! Not sure how anyone could pass this cover up (thanks to the amazing cathy z)
and maybe we just think this is true of whatever we have poured our hearts into, but this one is FABULOUS. It’s theme albums (like 40+) broken down into easy-to-follow recipes and they are so dang cool!!! You can preorder one now, or watch your local scrapbook store (sometime in May) I actually shared a sneak peek of this cover in my Glimpses class — but didn’t say "when" it would be availalbe. Sorry.
This one is worth the wait.

happy monday, btw.

  11. I am so looking forward to both of these magazines! I am totally going to pre-order them. Stacy I was at your class in Birmingham, Al and it was so inspirational! I had a blast – I do have one question, okay maybe two questions – what was the name of the happy book and also the singer of the Christian song Unwritten? I totally walked away from both of your classes with a different view on my scrapbooking. Thanks so much for taking the time to come to Alabama and thank your family for allowing you to come!
    One Happy Scrapper!! Cathy
