Creating Keepsakes newest special issue is out! It's called Budget-Friendly Scrapbooking:
"Prepare to make your stickers, papers, die cuts, and more go further than you ever imagined possible. With the tips and tricks in this special issue from Creating Keepsakes, you'll learn how to create beautiful scrapbook layouts using your scrapbooking leftovers and minimal supplies. Whether you're a new scrapbooker or have been creating for years, we'll show you how to stretch your scrapbooking budget to its fullest."
Here's a little sneak peak of a layout I created for this issue (I'll share a close-up in the coming weeks):
As usual, Creating Keepsakes is graciously allowing me to give away a copy of this special issue to one lucky blog reader. To be entered to win, simply leave a comment here before Sunday evening and tell something you do to stretch your scrapbook supplies and/or make the most of leftovers. (One thing I do is save all my scraps of patterened paper and cardstock. I keep them in drawers in arms' reach of my scrap table. Whenever I need smaller pieces for cards, page accents, stamping, journaling, etc., I reach into my drawers of scraps.) I'll draw a random winner and announce it here next week!
