This topic has probably been brought up before and I missed it but wanted to ask which scrapbook magazines do you subscribe to or buy? Which ones do you like the best and why? Which ones the least and why? Friday I rec'd a complimentary issue of Memory Makers. It has alot of nice layouts in it but some are a little more advanced that I am!! Not sure if I want to subscribe to it or not. I looked today at Wal-Mart to see what ones were available off the shelf but they were $5.99 ea!! Little pricey for me! :earseek:

Thanks for any input available.

It's called Lasting Moments.

It will be 72 pages of tips & techniques, current & new products & with NO outside ads.

The last time I looked at another magazine, it had more than half the pages filled with ads.

I'll let you know more details when I receive my 1st issue.

I personally prefer Simple Scrapbooks. Yes, it is just as full of ads as the others and it is not exactly cheap ($4.99 each I think at the store), but I usually buy it with my 40% off coupon at Michaels Craft store. I don't subscribe to it, but I pick it up a few times a year. I also like Creating Keepsakes, but they tend to be much more "labor intensive" and I just don't have that kind of time! If you are looking just for inspiration, check out www.twopeasinabucket.com , if you haven't already. I get loads of free inspiration there!.....................P

LOL wuv tigger....I was going to post the new CM magazine!:teeth: I can't wait to get it. Do you know when we can subscribe to it? I love finding new ideas it inspires me to keep going.:D

Oh my gosh pjilla....I am addicted to twopeas!:eek: :rolleyes: I spent all day yesterday there and most of sat. evening. I had looked for poems there, but never layouts. I have so many disney layouts saved on my computer....these ladies do awesome work! I know some of you are here on the boards. Just let me say....you are very inspiring! :D ::yes::

The only magazine I get is Creating Keepsakes. The layouts are labor intensive as well as expensive but I love the pages and ideas. Sometimes I look through it and feel somewhat discouraged cus the pages or so darn good but then again sometimes I look at it and it makes we work harder and be more creative than I normally would.

I like it though and I aspire to be good enough one day to get published in it :rolleyes:
