Did you know there’s still a scrapbooking magazine that’s in PRINT???  It’s from Canada and has 4 issues per year.  It’s Creative Scrapbooking Magazine. They have a fun website and blog (check out their weekly giveaway contests) and also some inspiration on Instagram that sure will carry over to our everyday scrapbooking.  Each month they publish a list of things to photograph… here’s the list for October

Fall Colors

For those of us in the Northern Hemisphere…. it’s beginning to look and feel like Fall.  A recent challenge has us using some lovely Fall colors in our cards and/or layouts.  Here are just a few of those creations from some of our members.  I’ll bet you can figure out what the color suggestions were!

Hope you find some inspiration here!

Artists Trading Cards

It’s amazing how much creativity can go into one tiny bit of art – an Artists Trading Card.  The only official rule is that they should only be 2.5 x 3.5 inches in size.  After that… anything goes!  Some of the PaperArtistsOnline group participated in an ATC swap recently and here’s the artwork – with a Friendship theme.
