Product Review: Great Scrapbooking Magazines to Check Out!


I found a few scrapbooking/ crafting magazines that are definitely worth signing up for, if you are interested in these types of hobbies. It was so exciting to get these in the mail and look for new projects, ideas and lessons. I find scrapbooking and paper crafts a great hobby for those with limited energy, due to illness. They are great projects to start and then come back to later, and also many of the project supplies can be inexpensive and make great gifts!

Paper Crafts
Besides making paper crafting project supplies and books, Paper Crafts makes a great magazine. The magazine features easy to follow directions and pictures of ideas for making; handmade greeting cards, party favors, gift
wrap, bags, tags, and gifts. In addition, there are product reviews and articles that would be of interest to any crafter, both novice or expert. Paper Crafts has become America’s top rated crafting magazine, and I can see why.
It was so easy to get inspired by the photos and instructions. Besides the normal monthly subscription, there are specialty issues dedicated to; stamping, weddings, birthdays and more. With so many occasions like weddings and graduations this summer, I am looking forward to making my own greeting cards for these occasions. It is fun to do, inexpensive, and will make my gifts unique!
A Paper Crafts Subscription is $19.94. You can order yours at 1 800 727 2387
