I always look at mags for inspiration. I'll look through and mark the things I like with little sticky tab notes sticking out the top. Sometimes it is just for ideas to use like embellishments or sometimes it is to CASE a card for something specific or sometimes it is for a new-to-me technique I want to try. I think it helps me to stay creative. :)

I love the card making magazines, there is always something to learn, something to inspire me. And of course the goodies are a special treat too! Thanks for entering my name.

I turn to crafty mags all the time. I keep all of them and use them as reference. It's fun to go back and see some of the old trends and merge them with the new.

The amount of times depends on the amount of information in the crafty magazines. I have two favorites that I subscribe to and Love and turn to about 4 times a week. Magazines with high quality paper and great photography are for me very inspiring, and I will save them. I didn't know you had a magazine and am intrested in it as I am new to the Spectrum Noir world (loving it by the way). Thanks for this opprtunity!

I get several magazines through the mail. I use them a lot for inspiration for my greeting cards. I may change them up but at least I have a starting point. I'd love to win the book - more inspiration.

I love looking at magazines for inspiration. It is so nice to be get away from my computer, curl up with my crafty magazines and just relax, or I take them on trips in the car to pass some time. I probably turn to a magazine at least twice a week!

Rufus said...

I have a large collection of Craft magazines, some old, some current. I look at them frequently. I can always find inspiration in their pages. Sometimes it's a stamp, or a color scheme, theme or sketch, fun fold or a reminder of a technique that sparks an idea. Would love to see yours, didn't realize you had one.
Thanks for the chance,

I refer to my crafty magazines regularly for inspiration and to refresh my memory on techniques I haven't used in a while! I don't think I have met a crafty magazine that I don't like! I NEVER throw them away. I am soon moving into a new house which has a craft room designed by your's truly. I have been trying to figure out how to display all of my craft magazines and I think I have finally decided on how I am going to do it! Will post pics once I am in and settled! This would be a nice addition to my collection! Thanks for the chance to win it!

MB Isaac said...

I love pinterest but I also love paper magazines and instructional books

SmokieBlueRose said...

I look at many magazines to help kick start my muddle brain. After the inspiration, I make the project my own. There are times when all need a tad bit of help, I feel.

abusybee - DoubleClick Connections said...

Super fun giveaway! I like to flip through magazines but I usually forget about them when I actually go to craft! Carri~Abusybee

Papertangler said...

Wow this must be some magazine! I have not seen it in stores. But I live in a small town so maybe I need to check in a big town. I look at craft magazines often for inspiration. I have 3 or 4 favorites. Each represent a different style or aspect of paper crafting. Would like to get to know your magazine. Thanks!

theresa dickinson said...

love getting magazines,it gives you more inspiration,specially when your crafting mind as gone blank.Theres loads of ideas and freebies too to get you started straight away.Your very own magaines are a must have to anyones collection xxx

Jean Bullock said...

I usually go on to the net and visit blogs for ideas. Can't afford subscriptions right now. Hopefully I can start subscribing in September when my new job starts.

Shari M said...

Whoo hoo. love the package that comes with it, and would love to see the ideas in "real". Thanks so much. Would really help in the colouring of these stamps already in house here. I generally look at regular card mags, write down what wanted to do, and that is about it, but with these being the colouring ones etc, would do as with the others, and use as guide lines, and references when colouring.

crindalyn said...

I turn to magazines a ton to find inspiration. They make for a great resource for my craft library collection and often provide more in depth coverage and themes than a blog or book can. Magazines are full color and reach many of your senses as you can physically touch magazines. Look forward to adding this new edition to my collection!

FL Crafter said...

Ohhh, would love it. Such pretty colors!

tndj said...

I look at the card and scrapbook magazines quite often. At least every other week. I have ideas but look at the magazines to see if I can enhance that idea even more. They are great inspiration. Never saw a magazine like the one offered. Would love to win it.

JJ Douglas said...

Would love this!! Love your products.

Alexia Misso said...

Hope to win! Can't wait to have a copy of your magazine!

Chrisbar said...

An AMAZING chance to win a little bit of everyone's ideas and then to adapt them to show a little bit of me to!! :)

Manetta Kanefsky said...

I have a HUGE collection of magazines right behind me where I craft. I love to turn to the older ones now and then...(my magazines all have little colorful stickies peaking out all over the place marking a page that I found interesting!) I love to get inspiration from projects that use to be common long ago. I must confess though...sometimes I get so busy looking at all the magazines that I forget to actually craft!!
Love to win this magazine!! thank you for the opportunity.

Angela Hartley said...

I love getting my emails...they are full of inspiration. Thank you to all of you for all you do!

Alexis Crossland-Smith said...

I love looking through paper crafting magazines for inspirations. I especially love the magazines like yours that have extra goodies in them.

Carolyn said...

I use crafting magazines or other forms of inspiration at least 75% of the time. It may not look at all like the inspiration piece when I finish, but that is where I start!

Joce Turner said...

This looks so awesome, love having my inspirational magazines around when I get stuck for ideas, or looking for something new and different!
